Faith in Nature Shampoo Bar, £4.35, Amazon


As the name suggests, Faith in Nature's shampoo bar offers a more sustainable, eco-friendly alternative for reducing waste when washing your hair. Not only is the packaging 100% recyclable, but the bar boasts a 99% natural ingredient list and all-natural fragrance - and users claim one bar lasts much longer than a normal shampoo bottle, too.

Top review: "Just used it on my hair today, and I’m seriously impressed! I was sceptical that a shampoo bar could get my hair as clean as regular liquid shampoo, but I’m following the curly girl method and wanted a shampoo that had no sulphites, silicones or other nasties. Some people can go without shampoo, but my hair needs it. This shampoo bar seems about as close as I could get to being harmless to my hair. I have no reason to go back to using other shampoos, and feel so much better in the knowledge that I’m decreasing my plastic consumption, even if only by a little."

Mascara is brilliant but if you really want to get the most out of your eyelashes, an eyelash curler is where the magic really happens. If you're unfamiliar with using an eyelash curler we wouldn't blame you for being a little bit put off by the sight of them. What are eyelash curlers?Often made of metal, the clever little contraptions can look pretty terrifying to use – let alone clamp your eyelashes between! But, when used before mascara, they have an amazing ability to curl and lift your lashes to new heights – giving the illusion of much longer, thicker and va-va-voomy eyelashes. Then, once locked in place with mascara, your lashes will hold their curl and lift for much longer and your eyes will appear much more 'wide awake' looking, which is the key thing really, isn't it? So whether you're in the market for a new curler or are a complete novice and looking for the best eyelash curler ever – we've rounded up our pick of the very best, no matter what your eye shape or size is. How to use eyelash curlersBut, before we dive into the good stuff, a quick 101 explainer of how to use eyelash curlers to achieve the best looking result. Eyelash curlers work best on clean, dry lashes – pre mascara. Hold the eyelash curler up to your eye and gently clamp the two plates together at the root of your lashes. Hold the curler shut for 20-30 seconds. Repeat this step with the middle portion of the lashes and finally, the ends – curling your lashes in three steps will give you a much softer, lifted curl. Et voila! Finish with mascara and get ready to wow.

Top review: "This serum is fabulous. A small amount goes a long way, so will last a long time, and when on the skin absorbs well, just give it a minute or so. It doesn’t leave a greasy surface of feel on the skin and leaves a lovely dewy sheen, I use it with the moisturiser, and even using both products it’s not heavy on the skin and doesn’t clog pores."

Conventional cotton pads are a disaster for the environment. Cotton requires a massive amount of fertilisers, pesticides and water use before it lands in our beauty cabinets. If you need to apply products like toner or AHA's with a facial pad, reduce your daily waste by switching to reusables.

Top review: "Want to try little things to save the environment? This is one of those little things! I was somewhat sceptical. When I got these I was SO happy that they lived up to their promise. In fact, I only use 10 and am saving the others for when these wear out, which won't be anytime soon."

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser Bar, £10.79, Amazon


Cult brand CeraVe was hailed as skincare royalty after going viral on TikTok last year for its highly effective, dermatologically endorsed ingredients and impressive results. Behold, the same CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser, minus the plastic packaging. The reviews speak for themselves, really.

Top review: "I was using the pump hydrating cleanser but felt like it didn’t last very long as I wanted something for all over (face, body and hair). This is perfect and hasn’t caused any irritation. It’s not drying at all and cleans perfectly. Get the oil off your skin a lot better than the pump cleanser which is a tad bit too mild when doing oil cleanse etc. Would recommend."
