Refillable Skincare Products for a More Sustainable Skincare RoutineJune 21, 2022
If you’re looking to create a more eco-conscious beauty routine, opting for refillable products is a step in the right direction — and it might save you money in the long run. Interested? Ahead, we’re sharing some of our favorite refillable skincare products, from anti-aging serums to rich, plumping moisturizers and more.
Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Body Lotion with Cocoa ButterThis cult-classic body lotion now comes in a massive, liter-size pouch, made with 81% less plastic packaging than the original bottles. You can keep the pouch stored away and easily refill whatever original container you have.
Lancôme Absolue Revitalizing & Brightening Rich CreamPaying a hefty price tag to restock on an ultra-luxe item always stings. The original packaging of this decadent cream costs $246, while the refill will come in at $207 — so it comes with decent savings. Considering the rich texture and the fact that it contains pro-xylane, a sugar derivative known to reduce signs of wrinkles and make skin appear firmer, it’s a justifiable, sustainable splurge if you ask us.
YSL Beauty Pure Shots Night Reboot Resurfacing Serum
If you’re looking for a refillable resurfacing serum, this is a great option. It’s formulated with glycolic acid to gently exfoliate dead skin cells, as well as moonlight cactus flower for added protection and moisture. The inner plastic tube is easy to pop out and replace when it’s time for a restock.
Youth To The People Superfood CleanserThis iconic cleanser is more than just an effective skincare product — the glass packaging and refillable option make it a great eco-conscious choice. Formulated with a blend of antioxidants, it gently cleanses the skin of dirt, oil and impurities while remaining gentle enough for sensitive skin types. The 16 fluid ounce refill can be poured into any of your empty bottles.
Glow Recipe Plum Plump Hyaluronic Cream
If you’re on the hunt for a refillable lightweight moisturizer that will hydrate your skin and give it some glow, this is the one for you. The whipped gel texture contains hyaluronic acid and plum extract to nourish and illuminate the skin. When you’re done, you can simply remove the pod from the outer packaging and pop in a new one.
Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Magic Cream
This rich hydrating cream deserves its praise for the incredible formula and refillable packaging. It works to smooth, nourish and soften the skin leaving it prepped for makeup or looking gorgeous on its own. Plus, buying the refill when you’re ready for more will save you a bit of money. The original 50ml size costs $100, while the refill retails for $90.
Kate McLeod Body Stones
This plastic-free, zero-waste solid body moisturizer is one of our favorite innovative skincare products. The solid formula warms on contact with the skin, delivering soft, rich moisture that lasts. The original stones come in a reusable bamboo container, while refills come in minimalist packaging. We also love that it comes in a variety of scents so there are plenty of options to appeal to people's preferences.
