Let’s take a look inside November’s Box from Between Green Boxes!
This month’s theme is Beauty Essentials!
This month we are making sustainable swaps in our beauty routine. Ditching wet wipes, plastic products and toxic chemicals that we use daily and swapping for reusable and sustainable alternatives, better for you and for the planet.
Jungle Culture Reusable Makeup Remover Pads
These Reusable Makeup Remover Pads from Jungle Culture (worth £16!) are made using a blend of sustainable bamboo and organic cotton fibres. This 18-piece makeup pad set includes 15 ultra soft cotton and bamboo fibre makeup remover rounds, intended for use with all skin types and on sensitive skin regions such as the eyes. Additionally, included are 3 plastic-free bamboo microfiber Terry pads that are designed to give your skin a deeper clean & cleanse, remove stubborn makeup and exfoliate your skin. They’re machine washable and the set comes with 2 cotton washbags!
Pink Clay Face Mask
This pink clay face mask is ideal for normal and sensitive skin types due to its unique balance of properties. It helps in stimulating circulation, exfoliating and cleansing. It does not draw oil from the skin so it’s suitable to use it on dry skin and dehydrated skin.
Daily Glow Facial Oil
Facial Serum with 100% natural blend of oils for an instant hit of hydration and protection for all skin types. Made in the UK and Vegan Friendly.
Facial Toner Mist
Let the feeling of calm wash over you with this facial toner Mmst. You can use it to tone skin after cleansing or to refresh and hydrate throughout the day, helping to keep skin in check. This toner is made from pure Witch Hazel and Essential Oil, lovingly made in Sheffield.
Facial toner penetrates pores and works to dissolve dead skin and impurities. It is wonderfully calming, soothing, and full to the brim with goodness to ensure pores are refined, toned and hydrated. Like all good things, don’t rush into it. Try using a few times a week and watch how your skin reacts.
Natural Sheet Masks
Although they are great for your skin, standard sheet masks are not so great for the environment. Anything single use is an obvious no-no, but additionally normal sheet masks tend to be made from cotton that releases microplastics known for polluting our oceans.
Eco-Masks are natural, plastic-free, compostable sheet masks that provide natural skincare experience without compromising the environment.
These DIY masks allow you to mix up a liquid of your choice to benefit your skin. For example, soaking the mask in chamomile tea for a soothing mask, or using essential oils to target your skin type.
