**Please note that this is the refill for the mascara and does not include the bamboo case - want the full mascara? You can buy this here!**


This refill IS plastic but I really believe this is a massive improvement to buying a whole new mascara in a full plastic case and a plastic wand each time. This is why I choose to stock this because right now I can't find a solution to a completely plastic-free and certified brand, plus Zao are doing everything they can to switch to plastic-free! 



Refills are sold separately on my site for only £13 meaning you keep the bamboo outer case and replace the plastic tube inside:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  1. Unscrew the white part around the top⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
  2. Pull out tube⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
  3. Pull out the wand from the lid - WASH this and send back to me as I will be collecting to send to Wands for Wildlife ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
  4. Add the new replacement tube and put back together!⠀⠀⠀

Aloe Vera Mascara REFILL ONLY - Zao Makeup

  • 100% plastic-free makeup that is certified organic, vegan, cruelty-free and doesn't contain synthetic chemicals is something we can only dream of. However, Zao Makeup are ticking A LOT of those boxes and it's their range of refillable bamboo makeup has really got me (and all of you) VERY excited!


    WHY? Because their range of bamboo and refillable makeup reduce A LOT of plastic waste in an area of our lives that has been impossible up until now! Even though their range is not 100% plastic-free (due to health & safety in the beauty industry) they are striving to find alternatives to plastic and fighting to change how the beauty industry work.


    It is so important for me to support brands like Zao, who despite the restrictions they are up against, they are doing everything they can possibly do right now to reduce waste, fight against animal testing and harmful chemicals. Whilst achieving all of these things they are still fighting for change in the industry and I want to be a part of that!
