6 Clean & Conscious Refillable Beauty Products To Invest In And Do Your Bit For The Environment

Ever heard of the phrase, beauty is pain? Well, when it comes to the environmental impact of the cosmetics industry, unfortunately the phrase stands true. Plastic pollution caused by impractical, unnecessarily-extra and fancy packaging, micro-beads from our exfoliators, ocean pollution, animal cruelty to name a few- very few.

Are you passionate about skin-care, make up and all things beauty? But are you also a green warrior fighting to slow down or stop climate change? Then, I completely understand the dilemma you’re in. And to put us out of our misery, I have found the best refillable products that can satisfy our beauty and sustainable needs.

asa Beauty

The CHAMPION of clean and conscious beauty, asa Beauty is a homegrown brand with a unique ‘Refillable Program’. So every single product they have comes with a refill option. Each product is vegan, sustainable, cruelty-free and inspired by the purity of nature. Run, don’t walk to try out their incredible range. My personal favourites are the concealer and Lip&Cheek Tint.

PAC Cosmetics Eyeshadow

These individual pans are characteristic of PAC’s fine, easy-to-blend, full-pigment eye shadow. They have a wide range of colours from neutrals, to bright colours in metallic, satin, shimmer, and velvety finishes. Super long-lasting, this stays put from day to night, and they are so, so, so, so pocket and environment friendly.

Stars Cosmetics Foundation Palette Refills

The TV industry’s best kept secret, Stars has been in the business for 5 decades, giving ultimate skin coverage with a natural finish. It has a light, creamy texture and comes in 12 different shades. Super easy to use and blends seamlessly, at 200 bucks for a refill, what’s not to love?

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Exfoliant

This cult-favourite Dermalogica product has a unique rice-based powder formula that activates upon contact with water, releasing papain, salicylic acid and rice enzymes, instantly leaving skin smoother and brighter. It helps all other products penetrate better and delivers the best results. The entire range of skin care products is free of artificial colours, fragrances, mineral oil, lanolin, alcohol, parabens and microplastics. A solid 10/10 in my books.

Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Intense Eye Cream

Their motto and aim is simple- Refill. Reuse. Repeat. What doesn’t this eye cream do? It wakes you up, revitalises, AND hydrates. This gem reduces the appearance of dark undereye circles, softens the look of fine lines, and intensely hydrates, moisturises, and conditions, leaving the skin nice and plump.

SHISEIDO Synchro Skin Glow Cushion Compact

An intelligent compact that you can effortlessly use on the go, it consists of natural ingredients that are specifically chosen for their skin-supporting powers. It has thyme extract which prevents skin damage caused by oxidation, and leaves your skin soft and hydrated. It feels so light once applied, almost like it is your skin but better- dewy, glowing and smoother. One of my fave compacts in the game.


I don’t know about you but I am going to continue to expand my inventory of sustainable and conscious products in all areas of my life – but especially beauty. These products are just the beginning of the journey to looking good but feeling even better about it. Let’s strive for a world where all beauty is clean beauty!
