Harrod’s Trailing Recycle Scheme

Image
Got an email and I noticed this new recycle scheme which Harrod’s is trialing out. This will actually be fantastic as recycling beauty goods in all stores will encourage many beauty lovers to be more environmentally friendly đź‘Ť  My Beauty Recycle and Reward has started (14th January) for 3 months to see how it gets on. This scheme is available in Milton Keynes store at the moment. They are encouraging customers to take down their beauty products, mini of 5 empty products to get recycling and enjoy some rewards. You can recycle any make up skincare beauty  bottles and even nail polish and fragrance bottles. A lot of beauty products are not recyclable in many stores due to being hazardous and many other factors but nail polish and perfumes can be recycled here which is amazing. I think this is brilliant and I really hope this becomes permanent and available in all stores. Had to share it with you all and I would love to know if you do pop by and use the scheme, how you find it and what d

SPF I use on my children

Image
SPF I use on my children - Age 3, 5 and 8. I know as parents, we have a 101 things to do from the moment we wake up, lets be real we just about remember doing our own selfcare routine. However I can not stress how important it is to get your children into a good habit/routine on taking the steps of washing their face, applying cream and then SPF. If my 3 year can say and point out which one is SPF from a cream, we all can do this :) Children copy us, everything we say and do including emotions, physical actions and how we act when positive and negative. What am getting at is, if you yourself share a happiness/ positive mode when doing your morning and evening skincare routine, they will do the same.  Tip: Tell them SPF protects your skin from burning, that's how my lot understand the difference between a normal cream and an SPF. Apply after your cream so the last one is SPF sitting on top of your skin to protect it. You guys keep asking so here is a few products I use on my childre

MY FAVOURTIE SPF!

The only SPF product you need! Since this was launched, it has been a staple skincare product in my routine. Honestly hands down one of the best and does exactly what an SPF should do - Protects your skin with added saffron which  helps to brighten your skin at the same time. Lets share some information first. BRIGHTENING MINERAL SUNSCREEN SPF 50 Natural | Organic | Safe | Effective |  Alcohol Free |  Fragrance Free Comedogenic Rating 2 Weightless formula which leaves no white cast on your skin. It is also water resistant for up to 40 minutes and is suitable for all the family. My children all over 3 use this :)  Infused with saffron for added brightening properties, SPF50 is like none other offering you   full protection from UVA and UVB rays  (up to 98%), as well as helping tackle hyperpigmentation.

Boots recycling system - Scan and recycle

Image
I am so so happy to hear Boots and No7 have now got an easy way to recycle your cosmetics and health, wellness products plus you get points  - that's brilliant. To see another big brand get involved with recycling and making it more environmentally friendly is amazing. I have previously shared a few places where you can recycle your beauty and cosmetics bottles and since then a few more have added so will update this. Boots have quite a few stores that are participating in this recycle scheme which you can check via their website. Every 5 empty products you take back, Boots give you 500 points. That's worth £5. Now that's fantastic. They are using a scan to recycle technology.  You can take back any beauty, health, wellness and even dental products. Check their terms and conditions to double check. All you have to do is sign up and share your empty pictures to bank items. https://www.boots.com/boots-recycling-scheme I just signed up so I will share my experience and let you
