Zao's Volume & Sheathing Mascara is formulated to provide intense colour and definition whilst nourishing and moisturising your lashes. Zao has re-launched this mascara as refillable to reduce plastic waste.
Free from toxic synthetic preservatives and using premium quality raw materials, this mascara reduces the risk of irritation and redness to eyes.Suitable for contact lens wearers, daily use and for those with sensitive eyes.
Packaged in a stylish, varnished bamboo case that is durable and sustainable, the product is presented in a bamboo pouch with drawstring to protect the bamboo packaging so that it can be used again and again for refills.
Zao brand does not use nanoparticles, talc and parabens (synthetic petrochemical-based preservatives) in its formula, using instead micronised silver as an effective and non-toxic preservative.
A wand is included with all mascara refills due to hygiene regulations, but please note that a lot of wildlife charities will take old mascara wands as they are extremely useful for removing things such as fly eggs and larva from the fur and feathers of animals.
Instructions for use: The most effective way to apply mascara is to start with the upper lashes; hold the brush horizontally and move up from the root in a zigzag fashion while looking down. Focus on the outside lashes if you wish to to makes your eyes appear larger, or focus on the centre to 'open up' eyes. Use sparingly on lower lashes by gently tapping on them.
Zao beauty tip: Mascara should be applied to clean, dry lashes that are free from cream or oil, after a dusting of powder to extend durability. Pull the mascara wand out with one movement and avoid pumping the mascara wand in the bottle. Wipe excess product with tissue rather than using the opening of the bottle as this can lead to dried out formula re-attaching to the brush. Wait until mascara is dry to remove any errors from skin, gently wiping it off with a damp cotton pad or cotton bud. You can then touch up foundation on the area if needed, using the same cotton pad or bud.
