Earth Day is April 22, making it the perfect time to stock up on eco-friendly refillable products. It’s not only a great way to cut down on excess waste but it can help save you money too. More and more brands are offering easy ways to restock your favourite beauty products while giving a gentle nod to Mother Nature, and here are 10 of them. —Jennifer Cox

The Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Retinol Alternative Firming Cashmere Moisturizer ($93, available at Sephora Canada) is a silky, luxuriously soft cream that not only intensely hydrates but reduces the look of fine lines too. Housed in a refillable jar, this formula is enriched with mineral pearlizers for an immediate glow.

Kiehl’s Bath and Shower Liquid Body Cleanser ($66) is an aromatic body cleanser that leaves skin feeling clean and smooth. It lathers into a refreshing foam and its gentle formula is made for everyday use. The bottle can be replenished too.

The Kure Bond Shampoo for Damaged Hair from Amika ($61, available at Sephora Canada) is a restorative shampoo that helps build a bond that will last. It’s powered by plant butters and vegan proteins, and it gently cleanses while working to repair, strengthen, and bring dry, damaged hair back from its breaking point. It can be refilled over and over again, and has an amazing scent Amika products are known for.

REPLICA by the Fireplace from Maison Margiela ($118, available at Sephora Canada) is a luxe cologne that evokes memories of wood crackling in the fireplace. It comes in a beautiful refillable bottle and reduces packaging by up to 32%.

The Idôle Eau de Parfum from Lancôme ($64) has a clean, soft scent with notes of bergamot (citrus), juicy pear, and pink peppercorn. Its refillable perfume bottle has a dynamic silhouette and is a true symbol of women’s will and determination.

The Special Cleansing Gel from Dermalogica ($84) is a fan favourite and now comes in refillable packaging, so that means less plastic and harm to the environment. This soap-free foaming cleansing gel has a refreshing lather that thoroughly removes impurities without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture balance. It gently rinses away toxins and debris to leave skin feeling smooth and clean. 

The Salt and Stone Body Wash Refill ($56) gel body cleanser gives your bottle another life. It’s infused with antioxidants, ocean botanicals, and naturally hydrating ingredients that are designed to help restore the drying effects of outdoor activity, wind, sun and sea. One refill pouch can replenish your body wash bottle twice so you can always stay stocked up on this award-winning formula.

The Vanilla Vibezzz Whipped Argan Oil Refillable Firming Body Butter Jar ($62, available at Sephora Canada) is a body butter that absorbs quickly for a velvety-soft and firming finish that lasts all day. Responsibly sourced argan is whipped to creamy perfection with 100 percent plant-based fragrances in a lightweight yet rich formula. And with the refill system, you can top up your amber glass jar and reuse it forever.

Drunk Elephant’s Lala Retro Whipped Cream Refill ($73) is now refillable and relovable. This rescue cream provides replenishing skin barrier support and defends against the effects of everyday stressors. Loaded with omega acids, this cream easily soaks in and contains antioxidant-rich fermented green tea to help combat the signs of aging.

The Hydrate + Glow Moisturizer Refill Kit from Glow Recipe ($66) is a super lightweight gel moisturizer that goes on easily and instantly hydrates as well as refreshes skin. You’ll also love the refreshing scent. Hydrate easily and sustainably with this yummy moisturizer.

Besides being fully recyclable, Yves Rocher’s bath and shower gel eco-refills are made from 90% certified OBP plastic collected from the coast, that otherwise would end up polluting the ocean. By using OBP plastic, not only is Yves Rocher developing waste recycling solutions in regions where waste management is insufficient, but also improving the social conditions of communities that live from OBP waste collection. 

Available in five popular ranges, Kérastase Genesis, Nutritive, Blond Absolu, Chroma Absolu and Résistance, a two-step refillable system offers a luxurious yet entirely reusable and recyclable hair care experience. First, the eco-refill pouch uses 82% less plastic than two 250 mL Kérastase shampoo bottles, making eco-friendly hair care a reality with minimal waste. And, the refillable bottle is crafted from 100% recycled aluminum, reducing plastic waste associated with single-use shampoo bottles, making heightened luxury a responsible practice.
