Get Rewarded For Recycling
Like all kiasu Singaporeans, my mum lives by the motto, “cheap things must buy, free things must take.” I first discovered beauty recycling programs in Singapore when she told me to save my finished M.A.C lipstick casing. “Eh, can change for new lipstick you know.”
That introduced me to the wonderful world of *coughs* free *coughs* beauty products.
You can get a free membership with any purchase at Innisfree. Members are allowed to trade in a maximum of 3 products* a month in exchange for 50 points (SGD$1.00 ) per product. Talk about turning trash to cash *ka-ching*.
*: The products should be labelled “please return to Innisfree after use”.
Upon recycling your fourth and seventh empty full-sized Kiehl’s product, you’ll get a travel-sized item of your choice. When you return your tenth, however, you get two travel-sized products.
Remember to collect your free eco-card from the store and have them stamped for the redemption to count.
With the Back-to-M·A·C Program, you’ll receive a free full-sized lipstick for every 6 M.A.C products* you recycle in-stores.
*: This deal excludes accessories and brushes.
As long as you bring back 5 clean black pots (of any size) from Lush, you’ll get a fresh face mask for *angels singing* free.
If you’re a beauty junkie who’s got empties from brands not listed above, fret not. Origins accepts empty products from any cosmetic brand and generously offers free sample sachets in exchange.
Bonus: Free Samples
