Not just for World Earth Day (22nd April), sustainability is ever improving in the beauty industry, with a focus on reducing, recycling and re-using. Though it's not possible to reuse your beauty products, many of them do now come in recyclable packaging. However one of the biggest ways you can reduce your carbon foot print through your beauty routine is by reducing your waste. Instead of throwing out your original plastic or glass container once you've used up the product, simply top it up with an eco-friendly refill pack instead, saving on energy and resources used to create packaging.

We've picked out some of the best refills on LOOKFANTASTIC  for your skin, hair and body that offer the same high quality formula but without the added waste.

Rituals Refill Hand Washes

These handy Hand Wash Refill bottles can be easily dispensed into your original pump holder to give you the same luxury cleansing experience without waste. The brand offers the refill bottles for all of their sumptuous and aromatic cleansing formulas including their The Ritual of Ayurveda Hand Wash; a nourishing, soap-free blend of Indian Rose and Almond Oil that soothes and cleanses leaving you feeling fresh and relaxed.

Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning Water Refill Pouches

Keep your tan and your tan bottle topped up sustainably with these Self-Tanning Water Refill Pouches by Isle of Paradise that are also Vegan and cruelty-free. The transparent tanning water gives you a bronzed summer glow and nourishes the skin using Coconut, Chia Seed and Avocado oil. Also formulated with a Hyper Violet ™ complex that uses colour correcting actives to give you the most natural-looking tan possible. The refill pouch comes with a small nozzle to make dispensing it into your spray bottle hassle free.

OUAI Shampoo & Conditioner Refills

The OUAI Shampoo and Conditioner Refills are available for all hair types from fine to thick, each containing the perfect balance of ingredients to give you body and shine.

MAC Sheertone Shimmer Blush Pro Palette Refill

We all have a favourite shade within every makeup palette we own and naturally, this is the one that will run out first.
