UpCircle Cleansing Balm
The whole UpCircle mission is to prevent a linear economy by repurposing ingredients that would otherwise be thrown away. These cleansing balsm are made using the finely-ground powder of discarded apricot stones, a natural by-product of the apricot oil industry that otherwise would have ended up in landfill, which to me, makes this product a massive improvement in itself!
Not only this, but all of their products are vegan, cruelty free, sustainable, palm oil free, organic and 100% recyclable packaging that is as plastic free as possible!
Before I started my plastic free journey, I used to get all of my skin care products from The Body Shop. As a comparison, face cleansers on The Body Shop are up to around £12 so at £18.99 this is a bit higher priced, however you're getting all of the added environmental benefits!
I cannot wait to try the UpCircle products so I will be updating this section shortly with my review.
