One of the biggest movements that I have noticed this year when it comes to Male Grooming, Beauty and Skincare, is that brands are now becoming more aware of our environment and are wanting to minimise and reduce waste by making changes such as introducing eco-friendly packaging, doing away with unnecessary plastic, and re-designing their products to make them recyclable or reusable. Don’t get me wrong, there are still a lot of brands out there who haven’t made any changes nor do they seem to listen to their customers when it comes to environmental issues, but for those brands who do, it’s a step in the right direction!
I had a meeting with Liberty London a few months ago and was told about their newly launched Beauty Conscious campaign which features brands who are changing the Beauty/Male Grooming industry by spear-heading the eco-friendly ethos towards a cleaner future by using organic, cruelty-free or vegan ingredients and being more conscious of zero-waste packaging.
I had kindly been gifted some products from the brands within the Beauty Conscious campaign which includes:
Votary - Super Seed Facial Oil (Fragrance Free)

Prior to Liberty’s: Conscious Beauty campaign, I had already become increasingly aware of brands packaging, the skincare ingredients within each product and ultimately, are they effective? I feel quite strongly now in doing my best for the environment whether that’s reducing single use plastic, not using plastic carrier bags and finding alternatives that are eco-friendly. Liberty London are also wanting your beauty empties! Within their store in London, they will recycle any of your empties in partnership with Teracycle.
