Zao Aloe Vera Mascara Refill - 090 Black
Instructions for use: Start with the upper lashes, holding the brush horizontally close to the root, move up in a zigzag motion while you are looking down. Concentrate on the ends to enlarge the eye and on the centre to open up the eyes. Gently tap the eye lashes when applying mascara to the lower lashes, ensuring that you don’t overload them.
How to refill: To refill your mascara, simply remove the centre part and replace with your refill. Each refill does come with instructions as well.
Indication of skin type: Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers
Beauty Tips: Mascara is the key item in your beauty kit, just a touch of mascara can work wonders!
1. Before you put on mascara, always make sure your eyelashes are dry and free of cream or oil, then dust them with powder.
2. Open the mascara gently and in one movement! Avoid pumping to keep the product on the brush, but make sure that you haven’t overloaded it.
3. If you have a few drops of mascara on your skin after you’ve applied it, wait until it is dry, then gently wipe it off with a cotton swab.

Zao is an exciting make up brand that is leading the way in terms of being eco-friendly. All Zao products are vegan and cruelty free and they also use bamboo packaging (most of which is refillable). Their make up range is not completely plastic free yet (mainly due to regulations in the beauty industry) but they are reducing their plastic waste as much as possible and I think it is so important to support brands that do this as they fight for change in their industry.
The Founder of Zao Makeup, David Reccole had a vision to provide natural formulas enriched with active organic ingredients and sustainable packaging.
Zao has developed 100% natural formulas enriched with active organic ingredients to enhance your skin's natural beauty. Certified organic by Ecocert, this brand is free from all toxic chemicals including parabens, instead using micronised silver as a preservative.
Zao have chosen bamboo packaging for its elegance and modernity. All trees are carbon storage but the exceptional growth speed of bamboo makes it a champion of carbon capture during its life cycle. Furthermore, it does not require pesticides for cultivation, making bamboo a true hero of ecological sustainability. Moreover it allows Zao products to get a negative carbon footprint as a carbon storage material.
The Zao laboratory has developed special formulas to respect your skin and the planet:
- with 100% of natural and certified organic ingredients
- all powders are talc free and contain NO nanoparticles
- with no ingredients from petrochemical industry, even preservatives (paraben, phenoxyethanol, mineral oil, paraffin, polysorbate, EDTA, BHT, BHA etc)
- Vegan and Cruelty Free makeup brand with no testing on animals (neither for ingredients nor finished products), as certified by Peta.
Thanks to an easy and inventive system, most Zao products are refillable. For more sustainability, bamboo items are encased in a stylish pouch to protect the product packaging.
