If you’ve already got your eco-friendly cleaning down pat, it’s time to overhaul your beauty routine. From eliminating single-use plastics to taking more notice of the ingredients on the label, there are a few ways that you can make your personal grooming kinder to the planet. These products are here to help.

Thankyou antiperspirant deodorant

$14.95 Thankyou antiperspirant deodorant Thankyou has formulated a 48-hour deodorant that's stain-free and safe on sensitive skin – and its refillable. The roll on comes in two scents: cypress and cedar and coconut and santal. The 50-millilitre bottle is made from 94 per cent recycled plastic. Refills come in a 100-millilitre bottle which will top you up twice. The brand also offers refills on its hand and body range for your bathroom sink and shower.

Foile Angel Eye Jellies

$39 Foile Angel Eye Jellies If you’ve ever needed to fake the appearance of a good night’s sleep, chances are you’ve reached for a pair of under-eye masks to help plump and nourish the skin. Sydney brand Foile has found a solution to disposable patches with its silicone Angel Eye Jellies. Simply dab a generous amount of your favourite eye serum onto your face and pop the jellies in place to lock in hydration, awaken and depuff. When you’re done, rinse and dry the patches before storing them in the aluminium case until they’re needed for your next moment of self care.

Flavedo & Albedo Forever makeup rounds

$21 Flavedo & Albedo Forever makeup rounds Sustainable makeup brand Flavedo & Albedo has made a name with its infinitely recyclable aluminium pots and high-pigment vegan formulas. But the waste-free mentality doesn’t stop there. The brand’s Forever makeup rounds are a pack of eight washable and reusable makeup rounds, which eliminate the need for cleansing wipes or disposable cotton pads. Four of the rounds are made from bamboo cotton velvet, which is super soft and suitable for sensitive eye areas, while the remaining four come in a softly textured bamboo cotton terry, perfect for removing makeup and applying treatments or toners. After use, hand wash with warm water and soap or simply pop them in the mesh laundry bag and throw them in with your next load.

Lui shave set

$97.50 Lui shave set Melbourne brand Lui launched late last year as an antidote to the very plasticky, very pink, very gendered razors we’ve grown up with. The brainchild of Rebecca Harding and Ingrid Kesa, Lui offers an ergonomically-designed reusable razor with refillable blades. The shaving cream is a pH-balanced antioxidant formulation made with shea butter, aloe vera and avocado oil.

Conserving Beauty Dissolvable Zit strips

$28 Conserving Beauty Dissolvable Zit strips Described as Australia’s first waterless beauty brand, Conserving Beauty’s products are as innovative as they are effective. The brand’s latest launch – another dissolvable addition to its lineup – comes as a solution to single-use pimple patches and stickers. The plastic-free strips (which you need to wet with a damp cloth once applied to the problem area; they can also be cut to fit) are coated in a formula that sees actives including salicylic acid, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide get to work on pesky pimples. Once you’re done, the packaging and the strip can be popped in your compost. The brand also launched a dissovable sheet mask late last year ICYMI.

Peg Paste natural mint toothpaste

$25 Peg Paste natural mint toothpaste Made on the Mornington Peninsula, Peg Paste has created a prebiotic-enriched, fluoride-free minty oral care product as an alternative to conventional toothpastes on the market. The brand has opted to replace fluoride with Hydroxyapatite, a non-toxic, naturally occurring mineral found in teeth and bones, to help cleans teeth and gums, while also claiming to strengthen enamel, remineralise teeth and combat sensitivity. The pump packaging is recyclable, too.

Fineau Basics Cleanse and Balance Hair cleanser and conditioner powder

$57.99 Fineau Basics Cleanse and Balance Hair cleanser and conditioner powder Pronounced “fine-oh!” (for fine Australian basics), this brand offers innovative waterless products, including powder and bar formulas. A two-in-one cleanser and conditioner, this powder concentrate comes in a plastic-free reusable bottle. The soap- and sulphate-free formula is low foaming and works to gently cleans the hair and balance the scalp. It’s a great option for anyone looking to reduce waste but also for travelling when liquid and weight restrictions are factors to consider in your toiletries.

Make My Shave metal dermaplaner

$39 Make My Shave metal dermaplaner Launching a sustainable shaving subscription was a no-brainer for Lindsay Kinniburgh, co-founder of Make My Shave. Frustrated with the lack of high-quality shaving options for women, and unhappy with the environmental impact of disposable razors, she created a kit that’s all about reducing, reusing, recycling and regenerating. And now the brand has added a metal dermaplaner to the mix. The ergonomic weighted metal handle offers precision when removing peach fuzz. This launch also offers refillable blades and biodegradable packaging.

Maison Balzac soap dish and scented soap

$35 Maison Balzac soap dish and scented soap Fans of Maison Balzac’s candles and oils have a new olfactory favourite to covet: scented soap bars. Hand-poured and cured in small batches in Sydney, they’re made from French clay and fragranced with botanical extracts. Soap bars negate the need for plastic bottles and pumps – just make sure to leave it in a spot to dry completely after use. You can use this one in the shower for your body or at the sink for hands. And obviously you need a antique-inspired dish, too.
