As beauty editors who get dozens of packages and products sent to our homes almost every day, we frequently think about the kinds of items we receive and the waste they produce. We're the first to admit that we could take better measures when it comes to embracing a "greener" lifestyle. The truth is that living in a truly sustainable, eco-friendly way isn't the easiest thing (especially not in the beauty industry). However, in the last few years, a ton of brands have made an effort to change that.

One way they are doing so is by producing high-quality products that come in recyclable packaging or refillable materials that help consumers produce less waste.

Sustainable beauty is a much-needed, growing movement, with companies like Fenty Skin, Love Beauty and Planet, and Drunk Elephant adding to the fold with products that are easy to recycle and free of single-use plastic. While there's much more that needs to be done in this regard, the products ahead are a good place to start. Whether you're looking for makeup, body wash, or even deodorant that can be refilled, we've got you covered. Read ahead to check out some of our favorite refillable beauty products that you can feel good about using (and reusing).
