Kjaer Weis Cream Blush, £41

One of the first brands to launch refillable packaging, the creamy blushers from Kjaer Weis feel incredibly luxe. The weighty silver case is like a piece of art, while the formula delivers a dewy tint on lips, cheeks and lids. Even better, once you’ve finished your chosen shade you can replace it with another of their blushes. The rest of the range is refillable too – even the mascara.

Beauty Kitchen Organic Shampoo, £10

One of the most sustainable brands on the market, Beauty Kitchen uses aluminium bottles, recyclable pumps and rock paper labels. It’s not just the eco-friendly credentials we love – the gentle formulas are brimming with aloe vera and coconut to keep strands soft and clean without causing irritation to the scalp. Once you’re finished with the product, return it to Beauty Kitchen, where the packaging will be washed and reused.

Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Refill, £19

Charlotte Tilbury’s much-loved Hot Lips collection is not only housed in show-stopping cases (think leopard print and striped designs), they’re also now available as refills. Named after iconic men and women, there’s everything here from deep reds to suits-all pinks. But best of all you can now repeat buy your favourite shade guilt-free – and with a big saving, too.

Clarins Everlasting Cushion Foundation Refill, £24

One of the first major brands to tap into refillable foundation, Clarins’ eco-friendly base comes in little cartons to pop in and out for reuse. The water-based formula gives skin a dewy, glass-like texture, while the protective formulation locks in moisture and helps to protect against pollution, free radical damage and UV rays. Use just a few layers for breathable coverage, or build up for longer wear.

Fans of Escentric Molecule awaited the travel size patiently, and when it arrived, it didn’t disappoint. Designed to refill the brand’s existing travel case, you’ll now never run out of this cult perfume.

Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick, £31

One of the chicest refills we’ve ever seen, Hourglass’ ultra-sleek lipsticks are now encased in beautiful golden applicators. The whole product costs £30, but each time you want to stock up, it’s just £18. Expect long-lasting coverage with a shiny, satin finish that looks and feels expensive. We love the shade ‘My Icon Is’ for its rich red undertones, while ‘I Lust For’ is a beautiful, suits-all nude which works for day and night.

Tropic Bath Foam Refill Pouch, £27

Tropic’s best-selling bath foam now comes as a 520ml refill pouch, ideal if you find this product is permanently installed in your bathroom. Formulated with Tahitian vanilla and coconut, it fills the room with a luxe aroma, while giving dry, parched limbs some much-needed moisture. Heaven.

Buxom May Contain Nudity Eyeshadow Palette, £32.40 (was £36)

As much as we love an eyeshadow palette, the chunky, plastic packaging means they’re often one of the biggest culprits for environmental damage. Swap your usual go-to for Buxom’s customisable palette, which you buy empty before choosing up to six shades from a selection of 40.

11.

Surratt Auto-Graphic Liner, £40

It’s an investment for a liquid liner, but worth it when you consider it only requires a new ink cartridge once it runs out (by the way, the formula lasts for months). Inspired by the tools used in Japanese calligraphy, it provides ultra-fine precision and jet-black inkiness that doesn’t smudge or flake.
