Created and handmade by Stevie Van Horn, the sensitive skin lotion from Yay for Earth is the ultimate sensitive skin multi-use balm. The entire production is completely zero waste.

Price: $12

LastObject aims to remove wasteful single-use products from our daily lives. One of their recent products is reusable Q-Tip.

While it might sound gross, when you consider that billions of single-use cotton-and-plastic swabs are discarded every day, the LastSwab Zero-Waste Reusable Makeup Q-Tip seems like a brilliant idea. A pro-makeup artist trick is to use a makeup Q-tip to remove mascara flecks and perfect eyeliner and this definitely does the trick.

Price: $12

We all know that traditional glitter is made from microplastic. Unfortunately, this means it takes hundreds of years to decompose.

As a makeup lover, this news was a devastating blow. However, brands like Package Free have created a cellulose-based Biodegradable Glitter so we don't have to give up our sparkles.
