9 Of The Best Refillable Beauty Buys

Beauty brands have upped their sustainability game recently and are now working harder than ever to reduce harmful waste, notably through savvier packaging, but also through refillable beauty products. Here, we reveal the best worth investing in…

Buxom May Contain Nudity Eyeshadow Palette, £36

As much as we love a chunky eyeshadow palette, they’re one of the biggest culprits for environmental damage due to the heavy, plastic packaging that’s left after you’ve used all the shades. Swap your usual palette for Buxom’s customisable one, which you buy empty, and then can choose up to six of 40 different shades. Pretty clever, right?

Jo Malone Fragrance Combining Palette, £24

Solid perfumes are having a bit of a moment, and Jo Malone’s latest innovative palettes are not only travel-friendly, but also help to reduce waste by housing two perfumes in one palette. The best bit? When it’s time to replace your fragrance, you just use the small pin that accompanies the compact to pop out the scents. Dab onto your usual pulse points for the most impactful smell.

Kilian Good Girl Gone Bad, £215 For 50ml Refillable Spray

Who said luxury can’t be environmentally friendly? By Kilian’s whole fragrance range has been specifically designed to be refilled. Plus, the refills are roughly £100 cheaper than the original fragrance, so you end up saving money. Another bonus is the scents themselves: heady, rich and unlike anything you’ve ever smelt before. A little spritz of each one goes a very long way.
