JANA’S TOP 5 SUSTAINABLE BEAUTY SWAPS

I AM OBSESSED WITH BEAUTY. UNFORTUNATELY IT CAUSES SO MUCH WASTE, IT’S UNBELIEVABLE. THAT’S WHY I STARTED TO LOOK FOR NO FUSS PRODUCTS, WHICH I CAN EASILY INTEGRATE INTO MY DAILY ROUTINE, WITHOUT COMPROMISING ON QUALITY OR SIMPLICITY – AND OF COURSE I WANT TO SHARE MY TOP 5 WITH YOU.

NEVER IN A MILLION YEARS WOULD I HAVE THOUGHT TO LIKE SHAMPOO BARS, BUT THIS ARGAN OIL ONE BY LUSH CONVINCED ME PRETTY MUCH INSTANTLY. IT MAKES MY HAIR SQUEAKY CLEAN AND SUPER SHINY. IT’S ALSO EASY TO USE AND STORE, I JUST BOUGHT THE LITTLE TIN THAT LUSH CARRIES. I’M A PACKAGING SNOB, SO THAT HELPS AS WELL.

I’M NOT GONNA LIE - I HAD TO GET USED TO THESE, BECAUSE WELL, REGULAR ONCE ARE JUST MUCH MORE CONVENIENT. BUT ONCE I DID GET USED TO THEM, I ACTUALLY STARTED DISLIKING REGULAR ONES. ORGANIC, REUSABLE COTTON PADS ARE SO MUCH SOFTER AND GENTLER TO THE SKIN AND I JUST PREFER THE OVERALL FEELING. AND IT’S JUST AS EFFICIENT AND VERSATILE AS REGULAR ONES. AFTER USING I WASH THEM BY HAND WITH HOT WATER AND A GENTLE SOAP, BECAUSE THEIR SHAPE GETS WEIRD IF YOU MACHINE WASH.

INSTEAD OF BUYING TONS OF CLEANSER IN PLASTIC BOTTLES, I STARTED USING MORE AND MORE FACIAL SOAP. THE CALENDULA ONE BY BINU IS BY FAR THE BEST: IT’S ESPECIALLY FOR DRY SKIN AND IT DOESN’T STRIP MINE OF ITS MOISTURE, IT JUST GETS IT SUPER CLEAN.

A SOAP BAR IS SERVING ME DOUBLE-PURPOSE. NUMBER ONE, I’M USING IT AS MY HAND SOAP INSTEAD OF A PLASTIC ONE WITH A PUMP AND NUMBER TWO, I USE IT TO GET MY EYEBROWS FLUFFY AND MAKE THEM LAST ALL DAY. WHAT CAN I SAY, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!

LITERALLY ANYONE CAN DO THAT. FOR ONE YEAR, I’VE BEEN USING BAMBOO TOOTH BRUSHES INSTEAD OF PLASTIC ONES. THEY FEEL NICE, GET MY TEETH CLEAN AND LOOK NICE IN MY BATHROOM - IT’S HONESTLY THE EASIEST SWAP EVER.
