Plastic free Beauty
Non recyclable plastic is becoming such an issue these days with massive amounts of plastic going to landfills and also getting into our oceans!. Recently here at Elloise India weddings HQ I have been trying to be as eco friendly as I can. From everyday products to Beauty products I have been trying out many new things to try and help our planet.
Lush has always been a favourite shop of mine and recently many of their products are becoming completely plastic free and some are even naked products (naked products are basically products such as shower gel, shampoo etc that are solid and don’t come in a container)
Here is a bit about lush;
Since Lush began, our founders and staff have been aware of how the products we manufacture and sell interact with the environment. We have always used creative solutions to make a positive impact on the planet, like the invention of the first-ever solid shampoo bar.
Whats a shampoo bar I hear you say? If you haven’t heard of a shampoo bar yet I highly recommend giving one a go when you need to get a new shampoo…if a solid bar of shampoo that you lather up in your hands and then apply to hair and rinse.
Lots of lush stores are going completely plastic free so no bottles of plastic containers at all! Which is amazing J.even at the stores that still have plastic you can take your empty containers and bottles back to them and they recycle them for you so they can remake more containers out of them. If you have 5 containers they give you a fresh face mask in return!!
Recently I have been trying some of lushes plastic free skincare range here are some of the products I have been using;

This naked cleansing balm works hard so you don’t have to. Cleanse, tone and massage in one with this skin-clarifying multitasker, embedded with mung beans on one side so you can make circulation-boosting massage part of your daily routine. A base of absorbent marula oil, a traditional South African cleanser renowned for its elasticity-boosting effects on the skin, combines with astringent hazelnut oil and stimulating peppermint to leave your skin feeling soft and tingly fresh. Simply apply straight to the skin or melt between the fingers first, massage in and wipe clean with a damp face cloth. As you wipe away, water activates the chamomile vinegar and rose water toning phase, which tightens the pores and soothes flushed skin, leaving your complexion bright and balanced.
My verdict-This product is soooo amazing! Not only does it smell gorgeous, it feels so dreamy on the skin… I started to use this in the winter and it really gave live to my tired winter skin. It leaves the skin feeling moisturised and refreshed! I will definitely be using this one again.

The convenience of a face wipe meets the luxury of 9 To 5 cream cleanser, with none of the waste. This reusable, biodegradable cleanser and makeup remover feels gentle on the skin, thanks to the carrageenan and finely ground cannellini bean base with clarifying fresh dove orchid infusion and ylang ylang to balance. Simply splash your face with water, wet one side of the pad, and glide over your face to activate a light cleansing cream that can be gently worked into the skin and rinsed away. Remove light eye makeup too by sweeping the wet cleansing wipe over your eyelids to gently rub away mascara and rinsing clean. Cleansing complete, you can then finish your routine as usual.
My verdict- I loved the idea of this product! And it definitely lived up to my expectations… it removed my makeup amazingly when I had a natural makeup look on… I tried with a full on makeup too and it couldn’t remove all of it but this is what I expected as I know it’s not made to remove a lot of makeup.
