Normally, we think of apricot pits, coffee grounds, and tea bags as compost, but Upcircle has devised an ingenious method of spinning “waste” products into gold! This company recycles organic matter and uses them as ingredients in their all-vegan, cruelty-free offerings. They utilize 100% recyclable packaging, as well! How cool is that?
Upcircle is based in the UK, but they do have a US website, which you can access at www.us.upcirclebeauty.com. The products are popular across the globe and have been showcased by Cosmopolitan, Glamour, the Daily Mail, and other outlets. These five-star rated items pack a wallop! We can’t decide what to order first.
You can’t go wrong with the Cleansing Face Balm ($24.00). Its secret ingredient is apricot stone (pit) powder. Apricot stones are super-rich in vitamin E! Suitable for all skin types, this balm also contains blackcurrant seed, blue tansy and sea buckthorn oils. Sea buckthorn is great for preserving your skin’s elasticity, due to its super-potent combination of vitamin E, vitamin C and Omega 7 fatty acids. You can use this elixir any time of day — either in the morning, or at night. Maybe both?
We’re intrigued by the Coffee Body Scrub With Cacao ($20.00). The natural body exfoliator is fortified with repurposed coffee grounds salvaged from London cafes! You can’t beat the sensual aroma of this product, since it contains both chocolate and shea butter. As you may or may not know, shea butter is a skin superfood. And caffeine stimulates your skin just as much as it stimulates your brain. Wow! We can’t wait to get our hands onto this product.
A good, organic facial serum is a must, and Upcircle makes a fabulous, hydrating serum for the surprisingly affordable price of $20.00. This product has won multiple awards. It’s rich in vitamin C, due to a dynamic combination of rosehip and sea buckthorn oils. Suitable for all skin types, this elegant offering is scented with geranium, rose, and lemon essential oils. You’ll love how it makes your skin feel!
Upcircle offers free shipping on all orders over $30.00. It shouldn’t be too difficult to spend that much. Everything this company offers is vegan, cruelty-free, ocean-friendly, free from palm oil, and handmade in the UK! We feel confident that you’ll love this company and its mission as much as we do. We’re delighted that they have a US-based outlet, so we won’t have to spend a fortune on shipping. This company is a winner on every level.
