Easy sustainable bathroom & beauty swaps

We all spend time taking care of our hair, skin and nails, and often invest in lots of different products to help us look our best. While those products can work for your beauty routine, they might harm the environment in the process.

Our solution? Beauty products that deliver gorgeous results without damaging the environment. If you’re wondering how to make your product choices more sustainable, we’ve got your back.

Reusable makeup remover pads

Taking off your makeup is essential for keeping your skin happy and healthy. However, the products you use can have an impact on the environment. Single-use face wipes and cotton pads often can’t be recycled, and aren’t biodegradable most of the time either. Plus, the manufacturing processes often use harmful pesticides.

Instead, use a reusable makeup remover pad. These microfibre pads are gentle on your skin and can last for years. You could also use a simple flannel, muslin or reusable cloth. Just pop them in the wash with the rest of your laundry to keep them clean.

Environmentally-friendly shaving

It’s time to ditch the plastic.

Disposable women’s razors are designed to be used a few times, then thrown in the bin. Without proper processing, they can’t be recycled. That means they usually end up in landfill. Instead of disposable razors, choose a reusable handle and recyclable razor blades for a sustainable choice.

Whether you love spending time on your beauty routine or prefer to keep it short and sweet, shaving should be effortless. Making the switch to recyclable razors is easier than ever with FFS. Our reusable metal handles and razor blade recycling scheme make reducing your plastic consumption simple. Plus, you can get new razors delivered with our innovative shaving subscription service.


Natural deodorant

Forget about body sprays, roll-ons and antiperspirants. Choosing a plastic-free natural deodorant is kind to your skin and the environment. Our natural deodorants come in a handy on-the-go tin, which can be recycled after use. Plus, the natural and nourishing ingredients look after your skin and keep odours at bay.


Bamboo toothbrush

Brushing your teeth is a daily necessity. Dentists recommend that you replace your toothbrush every 3 months too. If you use a plastic toothbrush, that means throwing the old one away into landfill.

Bamboo toothbrushes are a more sustainable option. These often feature a biodegradable handle and bristles, meaning they degrade after you throw them away. Plus, bamboo itself is an environmentally friendly plant that doesn’t harm the environment during cultivation.


Solid haircare

Keeping your hair shiny and clean often comes at a cost to the environment. Plastic bottles and synthetic ingredients aren’t the most sustainable option.

Instead, pick a solid plastic-free shampoo & conditioner that’s kind to hair and the environment. Our Pink Clay Shampoo Bar includes natural ingredients that clean and nourish all hair types without harming the planet. It’s suitable for up to 50 washes and doubles as a body wash too. Our Conditioner Bar is packed full of nourishing ingredients to effortlessly condition and detangle hair. Both compact in size for on-the go ease - What’s not to love?


Zero-waste face masque

Is there anything better than relaxing with a face mask? Making your beauty routine more sustainable doesn’t mean sacrificing those moments. It’s all about making the right choices.

Single-use sheet masks and plastic bottles are not the best choices for the environment. Instead, choose a solid face masque bar, like our Sensitive Facial Masque. This zero-waste face masque option gives you up to 20 uses, as well as natural and nourishing ingredients to give your skin a gorgeous glow.
