Does packaging influence your beauty buys?
As beauty bloggers and general consumers of all things pretty, you might find this to be a silly question. However the kind of packaging I’m talking about is impractical or excessive.
In my ongoing beauty journey I’ve come across several types of packaging that make it impossible to get all the product out, or have so much packaging I feel the trees screaming as I open it. As I’ve gotten older I’ve lost the patience for boxes that are kooky and/or elaborate for the sake of it. I’ve also stopped taking pictures of outer packaging when I do my posts. I don’t think it’s necessary and leaving it on stops me from using it.
Unfortunately I think Lush are one of the worst culprits for impractical packaging. I know I mentioned this before, but when I bought Dark Angels it came in this ‘palm frond’ thing below. I understand why Lush try to minimise the plastic they use and I appreciate that they don’t use an outer packaging either but it does put me off trying some of their stuff.
So which products have you avoided because of problematic or needless packaging? Name and shame the brands in the comments below!
