With news of a large scale water cut looming in the balance for Johannesburg and the on-going water restrictions taking place in Cape Town, we thought it best to put together a round-up of our favourite water-free beauty products to keep in mind when this precious resource is scarce.
Water-Free Facial Cleanser
Simply use a small amount of Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Water, R89,95 for 400ml, on a cotton round to rid away any dirt and grime from the day. There’s no need to rinse, plus the oil-infused-micelles leave the skin feel comfortable and not moisture-stripped.
Dry shampoo is by no means a new thing, but a no-rinse hair cleansing foam is definitely something we’re interested in putting to the test! Waterless Whipped Clean Foam Dry Shampoo Instant Hair Revival, R169,99 for 160ml, is a fabulous option to try when you’re out of water.
Water-Free Hair & Body Refresher
Nature Soap No-rinse Bathing & Shampoo Spray, R142 for 250ml, is easy to use, and perfect for when you’re travelling. Its dual purpose for hair and body cleansing helps save the water needed for two actions in one handy spray!
w&h Favourite: Water-Free Body Wash
DryBath Water-less Body Wash, R396 for 250ml is by far the most water-wise product on our list. One bottle equals up to 15 whole body washes! Drybath comes with 15 single use ‘wash wipes’ to smooth the cleansing gel onto your body with, and the best part – these are biodegradable too.
