If you know me than you know that I am big on resusable items.

So naturally I was pretty excited to try the new makeup removing pads by Santé by Enjo.

I used cloth nappies for our baby and washable baby wipes and I try to bring my keep cup when grabbing a coffee on the go.

It’s all the little things that make a difference! Zerowaste items are always a winner. I am by no means perfect though and there are lots of things I do regularly that aren’t green. Like everyone I am trying my best and taking steps to better myself all the time.

Back to business:

I received a whole set of reusable, washable, makeup removers by Santé by Enjo.
Best invention, ever?

Well at least one of the best invevtilns within the beauty space.
I have used reusable wipes and also cleaning cloths before and they have all been great.
These are from outstanding quality though. It’s also great they come as a set.

They come without packaging and arrive in a mesh bag, which is also used to wash the pads. You can simply throw the whole bag with the used pads in the washing machine.

First let me tell you about the looks and specs:

They are generously sized fluffy disks, that come in a variety of colours. The size is really great and makes them easy to use and efficiant in removing makeup. They are a seamless design, you can easily use both sides and all angles for makeup removal.
The fluffy appearance doesn’t dissapoint, they are SUPER soft. And they feel luxurious on the skin.
Another pro is that they are Handmade in Austria. You can really feel the high quality.

Use:
Simply add water and remove makeup in circular motions!
If you are using water resistant makeup you can use a little pure coconut oil first to melt into your skin, massage into eyelashes etc. so that you can loosen any water resistant makeup. Then you can use your makeup remover disk with water as usual to wipe away all makeup residue. Too easy!

Sustainability/Eco/Ethical Factor:

Reusable
Washable
No Packaging
Made in Austria / no slave/child labour/ no sweatshops/ sustainable practices Very high quality and durability
Saves the use of makeup remover products, which further reduces waste and resources

My Thoughts:

My skin felt really clean and clear after using the cleansing pads, even without the use of a cleansing product.
I am personally only wearing very light makeup, yet they also worked well to remove makeup on my clients and models.

Easy to wash in the little bag and just all round a great product!

Scout Organic Makeup Chubby Pencil Love

IMG_1808.JPG

Scout Cosmetics is an Australian Organic Makeup Brand with clean ingredients and I was intrigued by all the chubby pencils.

Pencils with cream products are just SO easy to use, perfect for real people, mums, travellers and others having a life to live and not hours to spend on their makeup.

But even as a pro-artist these products come in handy and are quick to sanitize with a sharpener and won't require brushes.

I tried the Pure Colous Lip Liner pencil in Pink which doubles as a beautiful Eyeshadow Pencil and Lipstick. Acutally, you can use them on the cheek too, if the colour is suitable.
The Eyeliner Chubbi Pencil and the Corrector Pencils were a real hit too. The texture and pigment are fantastic in all of them. Definitely professional quality. They are easy to blend and have a good staying power for a cream product. All these products are vegan too!

This was my first time trying Scout Cosmetics and I will totally be happy to try out more from this range and recommend it! 

 

News From Ere Perez

I have recently featured Ere Perez quite regularly over here and there is a good reason.

Ere has reformulated, added, repackaged...and overall just improved their amazing selection of toxin-free beauty products. Where I was previously only a fan of the Mascara, I have now included various products in my pro-kit.

If you haven't already check them out.

SKINCARE BY ERE PEREZ

Ere has recently added a skin care line.
Including an oil, with a wonderful woodsy/unisex aroma and lovely ingredients. It works well under makeup or mixed with it, but it's also a favourite with the Mr. to keep his beard smooth and hydrated :)

My fave is the new Papaya SOS Marmalade. A real multitasking product and an amazing alternative to regular Paw Paw Balm. It's a real Mum&Bub product, so no wonder I am in love.
I have been putting it on all the little boo-boo's over here, as well as on my cuticles.
It will make a great addition to anyone's makeup bag/handbag or pro-kit!

There is a lightweight cranberry lip & eye butter, more like buttercream :), which I love for prepping lips. (if you need extra care try the Papaya SOS Marmelade)
Most lip balms will have to be wiped or blotted off before applying lipstick, but this one just sinks into the skin and fully absorbs. Genius. It's more designed as a cream to target the area around the mouth where little lines tend to show up with age. That's why it's a great eye treatment too.

There is a serum, that looks like my morning smoothie: Green! And no wonder it's packed with Spinach leaf and healthy plant goodness. It's an anti-oxidant serum for all skin-types, for day&night.

Last but not least there is a refreshing Herbal Face Tonic, great for setting makeup, refreshing on hot Summer days or as part of your skincare routine.
 

MAKEUP ADDITIONS & UPDATES

The new eye-pallettes are wonderful, see them in my video here.
More about the nail-polishes here.
The bronzer also got a new and much sturdier packaging and last but not least they reformulated their foundations.

I am most excited about this as I love the brand but the foundations haven't really impressed me previously. I little too dry and tricky to blend. While made from beautiful ingredients they have lacked the pro-quality.

NEW OATMILK FOUNDATION
Not any longer, the practical, simplistic & stunning packaging is a squeeze tube, easy to use and super lightweight to carry. Hooray! It's a dream come true for the most sensitive skins.
No fragrance or scent whatsoever and with soothing oat milk, known for it's calming properties and to heal eczema and troubled skin.
The formula is best suited for normal to oily skin, or during summer in my opinion.
It still creates a beautiful subtle glow and applies well with fingers or buffing brush.
It's a medium to full coverage that wears very well throughout the day.
I easily found a great match to my skin tone, and like the range of colours they chose.
It's a smaller range of 6 so the skin tones on the very lightest or darkest might not find the perfect match. However, there are 2 options for fair, 2 options for medium and 2 options for deeper skin, which is a great starting point.
Thumbs up!

ALL PRODUCTS ARE VEGAN & CRUELTY-FREE
