Beauty brands that generally deliver what they promise to do and are high sustainability achievers:

Skin care

Edible Beauty Toner Mist

EDIBLE BEAUTY No.2 Citrus Rhapsody Toner Mist

An award-winning toner containing bio-active Australian extracts (Desert Lime, Lemon Aspen) and Green Tea, Fig, Guava and Bilberry, and with Niacinamide to brighten dullness, even skin tone and minimise pores. And with orange fruit extracts, it smells gorgeous. When I use this toner at night with Edible Beauty’s Exotic Goddess Ageless Serum (more below), there’s a beautiful glow to my skin in the morning.

EDIBLE BEAUTY No.3 Exotic Goddess Ageless Serum

The ultimate boosting serum, designed to revitalise and revive the appearance of skin through a potent blend of antioxidant rich botanicals and native Australian ingredients. This youth and beauty booster contains a bio-active form of Kakadu Plum, which contains the world’s highest levels of Vitamin C and works to visibly brighten along with Hyaluronic acid which provides a burst of hydration to prevent water loss and enhance the appearance of skin radiance and plumpness. Skin looks smoother, firmer and visibly rejuvenated.

Earthen Cleanser

Earth:en Passionfruit and Pineapple Cleansing Gel

Earth:en launched in May 2023 and is founded by North Queensland pharmacists Charlene and Paul Keller. I love the brand’s ‘farm to face’ ethos.
I’m always hesitant to break away from usual cleanser because I tend to break out even when I take short breaks away from it. As reluctant as I first was to try it, I’m now hooked, and I’ve begun cycling it with my usual cleanser. I knew this was an excellent sustainable beauty product when I woke up the next morning after first using it and my skin wasn’t its usual oil slick. It also looked clearer and more vibrant. I can’t recommend this cleanser highly enough.


AVEDA Scalp Renewal Serum

AVEDA Scalp Solutions Overnight Scalp Renewal Serum

Many brands promise that their serums won’t make your hair oily, and they lie. This serum, however, leaves no oily residue. In fact, when I use it, I feel like I wake up with more volume. It really is like moisturising your hair from the root. The serum bottle is made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic.

Make up

Ere Perez Coco Lip Crayon

I love these because they’re plastic-free, give full coverage and keep your lips moisturised. They’re vegan and cruelty free. Made in Italy. Wood pencil packaged with an aluminium lid and cardboard box.

LUK Beauty Food Glow Skin Tints

LUK Beauty Food Glow Skin Tints

The tint subtly evens out my skin tone, gives it a lovely semi-matte glow, and feels light-weight. I go a shade darker than my skin for a more bronzed look. Each tube is constructed using bio-polyethylene, a plant-based bioplastic. All hard components can be recycled at approved TerraCycle locations. Also, the box that the product is packaged in

is made from 90% renewable materials, including FSC-Certified paper, water-based varnish, and vegetable inks.
