**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!
HOW TO REFILL?
Refills are sold separately on my site for only £13 meaning you keep the bamboo outer case and replace the plastic tube inside:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Unscrew the white part around the top⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Pull out tube⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Pull out wand from the lid - WASH this and send back to me as I will be collecting to send to Wands for Wildlife ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Add new replacement tube and put back together!⠀⠀⠀

MY FAVOURITE INGREDIENTS
- Organic aloe vera juice: Aleo Vera is renowned for its use in natural medicine for centuries and is exactly why Zao chose to base a mascara around this ingredient. It boasts abilities to treat conjunctivitis and other eye allergies whilst being known for its soothing qualities; organic aloe vera juice nourishes and fortifies eyelashes.
- Organic castor oil: purifying, nourishing and fortifying due to its richness in fatty acids and vitamin E
- Organic shea butter: Shea butter is extracted from the fruits of the shea tree which is rich in fatty acids and incredibly nourishing which gives excellent moisture retention to skin.

WHY I LOVE THIS
100% plastic free makeup that is certifed 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 heath & 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 dispite the restrictions they are up against, they are doing everything they can possible 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!
TOP TIPS FOR LUSCIOUS LASHES
- Before you put on mascara, always make sure your eyelashes are dry and free of cream or oil, then dust them with powder - this will ensure your mascara doesn't smudge and will last even longer!
- Open the mascara gently and in one movement - as tempting as it is, avoid pumping!
- If you have a few drops of mascara on your skin after you’ve applied it, wait until it is dry, then gently wipe it off
