    1. These cloth nursing pads that actually make for great eye makeup-removing wipes.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    These ones are machine washable, so you can easily clean them when you’re done removing your mascara and eyeliner. They can also be used to remove nail polish, if you don't mind staining them.

    Price: $15.99 for a pack of eight and a carrying pouch.

    2. These glass pump bottles that you can fill with shampoo, conditioner, body washes, soaps and lotions. This set even comes with a sprayer head, if you want to use one for toner.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    I bring mine to my local refill station to be even more eco-friendly, but if you don't have one nearby, you can always purchase XXL bottles of your favourite products and pour them into these containers as needed.

    Price: $28.95 for four large bottles, two small bottles (all with lotion heads) plus one extra lotion pump and a sprayer top.

    3. A bottle of multipurpose soap that can take the place of everything from your body wash to your shampoo.

    Amazon / Via amazon.ca

    It comes in a ton of different sizes, but I recommend buying a larger bottle and funneling it into smaller jars and bottles to be as eco-friendly as possible.

    Price: $27 (available in eight different scents).

    4. A few sheets of beeswax food wrap that you can use to repackage partially-used products, like bars of soap, shampoo bars, and bath bombs.

    Price: $18.95 for three sheets.

    5. A reusable metal razor that you can use again and again, instead of having to toss it out after just a few uses.
