Review...Eco Tools.

I’ve found a new cosmetics crush (yes, I’m fickle) and I think it’s love!
Eco tools have been on my radar for a while now and I decided it was about time I checked them out after hearing some amazing reviews likening them to higher-end and luxury brands’ tools at half the price – what’s not to love?
The big selling point for me was that Eco tools are not only 100% cruelty free, but also kind to the planet; their cosmetic brushes, which are probably what their most well-known for, are made from bamboo, recycled aluminium and have the softest bristles, like, ever, made of synthetic taklon. Their cosmetic bags are also made from a blend of cotton and hemp with PET lining whilst their bath tools are made from 100% recycled plastic netting and all their packaging is re-usable or recyclable – phew! What’s more (yep, there’s more!), they regularly support and donate to conservation and wildlife charities so you can banish those feelings of guilt when you splurge.
And if all of that wasn’t enough to have you hooked, they have the biggest range of tools a pamper queen could ever wish for: cellulose facial sponges, poufs, body brushes, exfoliating gloves, pumice stones, sleep masks and moisturizing gloves are just a handful of the professional products they’ve created.
With good reason, the brushes and brush sets have been gaining a loyal fanbase since coming onto the market in 2008 and, believe me, they have the makings to be a classic cult hit in the making. Eco tools have produced all the cosmetic brushes you could ever need, from your basic powder, foundation and bronzer brushes to buffers, finishing brushes and angled eyeliner brushes. I love the fact that many of the brushes double up too: for example, the blush brush can also be used to apply powder and the eyeliner can double up as a brow brush – genius. The bristles are gorgeously soft, handles are long and easy to grip and the brushes are precise and pick up product easily. In fact, they give my MAC and Bobbi Brown brushes a good run for their money with a reasonable price point that everyone can afford.
I can’t recommend Eco tools’ products enough and I love that they’re setting an eco-friendly, cruelty-free precedent for other brands.

I'm now thinking I need to try some of these brushes!




  1. I have the Eco tools foundation brush and I love it. I don't use it so much any more as I am in love with my MAC 190. But it's such a good brush. xo

  2. I got the foundation and eye shadow ones and am in love, my makeup is looking so much nicer on!
