Aloe vera mascara is an extra gentle mascara to give your lashes definition and volume. The long-lasting formula contains organic aloe vera.
If you've experienced irritation to your eyes from past mascaras, you might want to give this one a try. It's formulated without synthetic preservatives.
To use your mascara, start with clean eyelashes and dust them with a little makeup or eyeshadow powder. This helps your mascara last longer. Begin with the upper lashes and move the brush along them from root to tip in a zigzag motion. If you want to enlarge your eyes, add some more mascara to the ends. Or, for open eyes, apply more mascara to the centre. For lower lashes, gently tap the mascara on and make sure not to apply too much.
Zao mascara is available in black or dark brown. You can choose from the full product in a bamboo case or a refill. The refills aren't plastic free but do help to reduce overall waste. They contain a wand due to hygiene regulations, but you can donate old wands to wildlife charities as they make a useful tool.
Aloe vera mascara is 51% organic, cruelty free and vegan. It contains a palm oil derivative that's certified by the RSPO to be sourced sustainably. Each product contains 7ml of mascara.
Zao beauty tip
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.
Before you put on mascara, always make sure your eyelashes are dry and free of cream or oil, then dust them with powder. This preparation will ensure your mascara won't smudge and will last even longer.
