We were already obsessed with Bleach London before they rebranded their packaging as 100 percent recycled cardboard and eco-friendly materials.

Honestly, their vegan formulas give us the best colours in hair as well as makeup, while maintaining a conscience.

Every since their sustainably-focused packaging rebrand, we've become unhealthily addicted to the energetic cosmetic company, and you will be too.

Co-founders of the brand, Alex Brownsell and Sam Campbell, made absolutely sure that their relaunched packaging was made from environmentally sound materials.

In our humble opinion, every makeup, skincare and cosmetics brand needs to follow suit. The vast amount of waste and plastic in landfill coming from the industry is mind-blowing.

The lads and their waste-not attitude led to the brand's customisation palettes.

These palettes come in a magnetic box and allow you to buy individual eyeshadow colours and collect them. The boxes come in a larger size for home use and a smaller one for on-the-go.

We're all guilty of only using one or two eyeshadow colours out of an entire palette, so why not curate your own kit and simply refill it when it runs out? Simples.

Bleach London 'Metallic Louder Powder', €5.60 (£5)

This translates to less waste, and a more sustainable beauty regimen. Bleach London's incredible hair range has also been totally vegan since 2017.

The company have a strictly cruelty-free ethos and are PETA-approved as part of their Beauty Without Bunnies programme. They're essentially magicians of beauty.

'Metallic Louder Powders' by Bleach London are available online for the affordable price of €5.60.

Codex Beauty has been making waves across the beauty industry for it's bioscience-led initiative that sets a new standard for organic luxury skincare.

The company was founded in Silicon Valley by Barbara Paldus, a Stanford-University electrical engineer with a Ph.D and entrepreneur skills to burn. Codex Beauty is led by a team of scientists, botanists, dermatologists and cosmetic chemists who believe in utilising science to harness nature in it's purest form.

Recently Bia Beauty, the Irish company founded in Cork by herbal scientist Tracey Ryan, was bought by Codex Beauty and their latest collection has blown any expectations we had out of the water. 

Codex Beauty is a collective of global brands which are built on science, organic and vegan ingredients, plant-based preservatives, pharmaceutical-grade processes, safety and efficacy trials, innovative and sustainable packaging and third party certification.

"We are dedicated to telling you exactly why our products were created and how they will impact your health and skin," Paldus explains.

"Nothing at Codex Beauty is ever 'good enough'. We are always searching for the next discovery or technical breakthrough. We will never stop innovating and improving. That is engrained in our DNA." The name Codex comes from the ancient bound manuscripts that changed how knowledge was shared.

The company truly believe that education and information about skincare is imperative. Clean beauty and transparency is what they're all about, and we couldn't love them more.
