The Effect Of Chemical-Free Makeup

I’ve been talking a lot about my zero waste makeup alternatives. However, I haven’t really talked about the difference I’ve been able to see on myself after this switch. I have been using my homemade foundation for several months and I can honestly say that I have never come across a foundation powder this effective. Experimenting with homemade makeup does not mean you have to settle for lousy imitations. Anyway, the difference I can see and feel on my skin is enormous. Firstly, my skin is softer and a lot less red in the T-zone. Secondly, I have had almost no break outs since I switched  to 100% natural makeup. I am so happy that I ditched all those chemical makeup products for zero waste, plastic and chemical free homemade products which only requires 3-4 ingredients. I feel a giant difference on my skin and in my budget. If you interested in more homemade makeup tips check out my homemade eye shadows and my zero waste makeup tutorial!

Zero Waste Bathroom // Eco Toothbrush

Eco Bamboo Toothbrush

I’ve gotten a few questions regarding bathroom essentials, more specifically, dental hygiene. A bamboo toothbrush has been on my wishlist ever since I started zero wasting, but I waited to get one until my old one was done anyway. I was so happy to learn that one of my favourite stores just got compostable eco friendly toothbrushes, Naturlig Hverdag. This toothbrush is made from panda safe bamboo btw, score! I am so excited to start using my new toothbrush, of course along with my homemade toothpaste, check out the recipe here! (This product was a gift from Naturlig Hverdag)

My Zero Waste Week // Tips

I am just bringing you guys a tiny update from last week, including a few tips I have found very useful. 1// First of all I went to a party and I brought a jar for draught beer, which worked great. People actually seemed to find it rather cool. 2// Other than that, my boyfriend has been talking a lot about wanting to give me more flowers. However, I do not care for those plastic wrapped bouquets. Therefore he always picks wild flowers and I love it! They are also a thousand times prettier anyways. 3// Then there is the deal of my meat in the jar. However, I have had some problems lately because some stores find it unsanitary, which is nonsense. So I am looking for a new place to purchase meat. 4// Lastly I have been using wild cherries and blueberries as sides for breakfast and lunch, it is not only delicious but it is also super plastic free!
