Cowshed Rejuvenate Hyaluronic Acid Face Mask, £16.80

As the name suggests, the company came from humble beginnings – launched from an old cow shed in Somerset, the now-international brand produce a range of holistic products that incorporate natural botanicals and sustainable resources.

The Rejuvenate Hyaluronic Acid Face Mask contains papaya oil to exfoliate, and plant butters to nourish, leaving the skin feeling plump and supple. The mask is currently reduced from £24 to £16.80 on Cowshed.com – bargain!

Faith in Nature Shea and Argan Shampoo Bar, £5.79

A compact eco-friendly alternative to plastic bottles of shampoo, the Shea and Argan Shampoo Bar lasts for up to 50 washes. Wrapped in 100% recycled and recyclable packaging, the bar incorporates ethically traded rich shea butter and nourishing argan oil that will leave your hair silky smooth.

UpCircle Hemp + Cotton Makeup Remover Pads, £8.99

We admit it, we still use disposable wet wipes occasionally to remove makeup, despite being aware of how damaging they can be on the skin. UpCircle’s reusable rounds are a skin- and environmentally-friendly alternative. The hemp pads come in packs of seven – one for every day of the week, are machine washable and get softer with use.
