How to Make Your Beauty Routine More Sustainable
1. Use reusable makeup remover pads
Reusable makeup remover pads made from organic cotton, bamboo or microfiber material are an more eco-friendly option for removing makeup than cotton pads or makeup wipes.
Soak a cotton pad with No7’s Cleansing Water, and gently swipe over the skin in circular motions, avoiding the delicate eye area. Formulated with a blend of fruit extracts, antioxidants and natural AHAs, it helps hydrate and refresh the skin, leaving it feeling softer and smoother.
