Zao's Aloe Vera Mascara delivers intense definition, volume and durability with its clever structured lash-by-lash brush wand. Its nourishing formula cares for your lashes with organic aloe vera, castor oil and shea butter whilst coating your lashes from root to tip with intense colour. Perfect for evening wear, this mascara will gives your lashes va-va-voom!

Formulated without synthetic preservatives and with high quality raw materials, this mascara reduces the risk of redness and irritation to your eyes. Suitable for regular use and sensitive eyes. Our mascaras are now refillable to reduce waste.

Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a bamboo pouch with drawstring, Zao makeup is both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.

Please note that we have enhanced the Aloe vera mascara with an ingredient upgrade. The new formula is now available in black, with brown to follow as stocks deplete. As such, the ingredients are slightly different for each shade at this time, as detailed in the description below.

A wand is included with all 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.

Ingredients highlight for 090:

Organic aloe vera gel: Known for its soothing virtues, organic aloe vera gel repairs and soothes the contours of the most delicate eyes.

Organic acacia gum: Acacia gum or gum arabic is derived from the resin secreted by the Acacia Senegal tree. Used as an adhesive agent, it improves the hold of Zao mascaras.

Organic carnauba wax: Secreted by the leaves of a palm tree native to Brazil, this wax is a film-forming agent that protects skin through the production of a continuous film and thus improves makeup durability.

Ingredients highlight for 091:

Organic aloe vera juice (Aloe barbadensis leaf juice): The aloe vera plant is renowned for its use in natural medicine for centuries, and is used in our mascara for its abilities to treat conjunctivitis and other eye allergies. Known for its soothing qualities, organic aloe vera juice nourishes and fortifies eyelashes.

Organic castor oil (Ricinus communis seed oil): Castor oil has purifying, nourishing and fortifying qualities, due to its richness in fatty acids and vitamin E.

Organic shea butter (Butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter): Shea butter is extracted from the fruits of the shea tree, which only grows in West Africa. Its richness in fatty acids promotes nourishment and moisture retention to skin. Recommended as a stimulant to wound healing, it is also protective against UV with soothing and calming qualities.

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.

Zao beauty tip: Mascara is the key item in your beauty kit, just a touch of mascara can work wonders! Some tips for a quick and easy beauty routine: 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. 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. If so, gently remove any excess with a tissue and not at the opening of the bottle. 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. If you are already wearing foundation, you can also dab a little on the cotton swab before removing the mascara to ensure your complexion remains even.

    This product is quite wet and therefore needs lots of layers to lift the lashes. It wears off quickly.

    Zap refillable aloe Vera mascara

    Posted by Amy on 23rd Sep 2020

    I was using the clinique mascara before and was a bit skeptical to purchase this after reading the mixed reviews, however, I can say it is just as good as any other mascara I have used! Doesn’t smudge, lasts all day and it’s easy to remove.

    Since using this product I had no build up on the wand and when taking it off at night with normal make up remover it's no hassle at all. It lasts all day.

    Wonderful

    I've been looking for a long time for a water soluble mascara and it is truly hard to find anything. I've choose this product mainly for the ethical and sustainable practices but this product is great. It also has a good consistency, doesn't clump.

    Nice to put on but it smudges easily

    Posted by Lisa on 18th Jul 2020

    I really wanted to like this product because I think it's so great to have a natural mascara that is refillable. This was my first time trying a natural mascara so I can't compare it to any others. I understand that natural mascaras can't be waterproof but this mascara was under my eyes at the slightest bit of moisture e.g. when my face got hot. The mascara dries around the edges of the container too which flaked over my floor regularly when I opened it. The mascara goes on nice when you put it on and I will continue to use it when I know I'm just going to be indoors. I'm going to try the other type next.

    Lovely

    Posted by Ruth on 28th Mar 2020

    I was impressed with this mascara as it is extremely easy to remove. it can move when it is on but my lashes feel better as they don't need to be pulled to remove mascara.

    Not bad but probably wouldn’t buy again

    Posted by Bear on 28th Jan 2020

    I loved the packaging and the thought of a more eco friendly mascara, but unfortunately it didn’t work out for me. The product irritates my eyes causing them to stream, which led to rivers of black down my cheek! I know this isn’t waterproof but my other non-waterproof mascara would be tear-safe to an extent. It might just be me though. I wish this could have been my new mascara but it just wasn’t meant to be...
