New Low-Waste Beauty Products I Love


Low-Waste Beauty Products Title

Today I am going to share with you some low-waste beauty products I’ve been using recently.  It can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to buying plastic-free bath and beauty products, so I am going to share some products to make things a bit easier.

You may have read my blog post from a while ago:  What’s in My Vegan, Eco-Friendly Shower.  I still love all those products, but I also love to switch things up and try new products.

All of the products listed below are 100% vegan and cruelty free, as well as palm-oil free!

By the way, this post is not sponsored at all, this is simply my review on products I've tried recently.

Unwrapped Life Shampoo Bar

I have used Unwrapped Life shampoo and conditioner bars before, and they work great.  The shampoo is very sudsy and makes my hair feel clean.  This time I bought The Stimulator, which has a nice minty smell to it.  I actually was able to purchase it on sale from, so it only cost about $14.  Not a bad price for a shampoo bar, and these ones last a long time.

Ethique Conditioner Concentrate

Ethique (somewhat) recently released a new product line of concentrate bars, which I think is so cool.  Basically you add the concentrate bar into a bowl with hot water and mix it until it turns into a liquid.  Then you add it to a bottle or jar that you already own, making it completely zero-waste!

I bought the Hydrating Conditioner Concentrate, and I love it.  Conditioner bars are nice, but I find they don't hydrate my hair as well as liquid conditioner does.  If you have any conditioner bars that you swear by, let me know in the comments below because I would love to know.

The Hydrating Conditioner also has a minty smell, so it works well with my shampoo bar.

Routine Deodorant Cream

Routine is a Canadian brand that sells deodorant, soap, and other beauty products.  I read great reviews about their products, but I was a bit hesitant because they are expensive.  However, I later realized that they sold sample sizes of their products so you can try them out before committing to the full size.  I bought a couple of samples and was completely sold.  They smell amazing and work really well.

Just for the heads up, the sample sizes do come in plastic containers.  If you are like me and hold on to containers to repurpose them later on, then this will not be a problem.  I plan to use the containers to hold my DIY body butter for travelling, or to give away small amounts to friends and family.

I ended up buying a full size of the Cat Lady, which is very sweet and smells like cookies.  I also tried Sexy Sadie and Lucy in the Sky, which both smelled really nice too.  I would recommend any of them. BEWARE:  Not all of Routine’s deodorant creams are vegan.  A lot of them contain beeswax, so make sure you read the product descriptions first before you buy them!

I hope you enjoyed reading.  I love testing out new shampoo bars and other low-waste bath and beauty products, so stay tuned for more posts like this one.
