& Other Stories
From its excellent creamy lipsticks to its pastel-toned hand wash and body scrubs, we love & Other Stories’ beauty products. We also love that H&M’s sister brand has offered beauty recycling in its UK stores since 2015. Return one or more empty Stories containers to any branch (or old clothes from any brand for textile recycling), and you’ll be rewarded with a 10% off voucher to be used across the store.

Neal’s Yard Remedies
Most Neal’s Yard Remedies packaging can be recycled through local council schemes, as the company predominantly uses glass containers (you can also refill bottles of its Geranium & Orange Hand Wash and Bee Lovely Bath & Shower Gel at select branches). But if you find yourself with hard-to-recycle empties from any brand – such as face wipe packets, atomisers and pumps – simply take them into a Neal’s Yard store and they’ll do the hard work for you.

How’s this for an early commitment to sustainability: L’Occitane had a return system for its glass bottles way back in 1976. Fast-forward over 40 years and you can buy refill sachets for over a dozen of the brand’s iconic products, and take empty beauty, skincare and haircare packaging into L’Occitane boutiques for recycling. As a thank you for doing your bit for the environment, you’ll receive 10% off your next purchase of a full-size item. Find out more
The Body Shop
The Body Shop has always championed sustainability, and the brand has joined forces with recycling company TerraCycle – so you can recycle any empty bottles, jars, tubes and pots in store. Even better, if you’re a member of the Love Your Body™ Club (the brand’s loyalty programme), you’ll receive a voucher for £5 off your next purchase when you bring in five clean bits of The Body Shop packaging for recycling.

’s beauty editor Lucy Partington
is a bronzing latecomer. Here’s the (beginner-friendly) product that converted her
I have a confession to make: I’ve been a beauty journalist for seven years and, until now, have avoided bronzer because I assumed it wouldn’t suit me. However, I’d heard good things about Physicians Formula – a US drugstore brand that’s just launched here – and its bestselling Murumuru Butter Bronzer, and I wanted in (mostly because it has the most tropical coconut scent).
Fast-forward three weeks and I’ve used it every day. I lightly dust the creamy powder formula (my shade is Sunkissed) along my cheekbones, down my jaw and across my forehead with this tapered powder brush to add the slightest bit of warmth to my otherwise pale face. I’m a total convert. £12.99, FeelUnique

Anyone with natural hair knows the struggle is real when it comes to finding accessible and trustworthy services. Enter Antidote Street’s Hair Lab – a week of pop-ups packed with coil-loving brands and offering pretty much everything your strands would ever need. Choose from twist-outs, a braid bar, a hair and scalp health analysis, or even a big chop (gulp). With hair parties from Old Street to Brixton until 10 August, it’s not to be missed. Services from £35; slots must be booked in advance
