This product is eligible for our container return program! This gives our glass and metal containers another life and keeps them out of the landfill. Plus, our labels are completely biodegradable and plastic free. Meaning re-using the containers puts absolutely zero waste in the landfill. Paired with our 100% compostable and recyclable shipping materials, you'll be able to say goodbye to plastic filled cosmetics for good!
Unlike synthetic mascaras, this product takes a second to dry and is not waterproof. It should be allowed to set to avoid smudging. While many mascara manufactures include a plastic insert to remove the excess mascara, we skip it to save the waste. Simply lightly spin your wand against the edge of the vial to remove excess and then apply! Re-apply as desired, curl, and fall in love with your gorgeous lashes! To rinse off your wand, simply run it under hot water until it runs clear and allow to dry.

The absolute best!

I am a super fan of this plastic free mascara. I actually buy it as a refill for my old tube mascara because I love the wand. When it gets low I wash the tube and wand and refill with my handy dandy glass vial of mascara! Works fantastically.

The best I've found

This is the best plastic-free mascara I've found so far. Looks better/bolder than other (I switched from Elate most recently), holds up well throughout the day (I bike commute, so I haven't tried it in the summer but haven't had any smudging/melting action yet). Would highly recommend

I love this mascara! It make my lashes look so long and it’s super natural. I feel so good when I use it knowing it’s zero waste!:)

The amount of product is very generous. How do I use it. If I put the wand in the mascara there is way too much mascara on the wand brush to use. Thank you.

Hi Merri, We recommend you go with a less is more approach; gently dip your spoolie into the mascara and wipe around the mouth of the vial to remove any excess before applying. Start with a light layer and allow for it to dry completely before applying a second coat. Here is a how-to application video with some tips and tricks! ( Hope that helps! If you have any other questions, please reach out to and we'd be happy to help!

Love it!

I’ve been looking for a plastic free mascara and was so excited when I found this. I love it! It goes on easily and the amount in the glass jar is very generous. Will buy this again.

Absolutely love it!

I bought this mascara because of the low waste/plastic free format, the fact that it was a small, woman owned business and it was local. I couldn't be happier! It takes a little to get the hand of it of how not to have too much product on the wand (I also used a wand from an old mascara I used to have). The product goes on really well and easily, my lashes look fuller and longer and it lasts all day (I work 12 hour shifts) without smudging or making me look like a panda by the end of day. Absolutely recommend it!
