When we were planning the packaging for our products, we made the deliberate decision to keep packaging to a minimum.

As a result, both our face oils and our body oils are packaged in re-useable drawstring bags.


If you’re looking for some creative ways to re-use your drawstring bags, you’ve come to the right place. Our gorgeous blogger, Caley Joelle has collated the answers you, our lovely customers, gave us during a recent packaging chat on our Facebook page. Enjoy!


If you’ve ordered one of our bettyquette face oils or body oils, you’ll know that they’re parcelled in white drawstring bags.

These cute little bags, are perfect for a variety of purposes, other then for holding your bettyquette beauty products of course! 

For me personally, I keep my white bags to store smaller items in them such as bobby pins and hair ties, and have found them particularly helpful when travelling to hold my phone charger and earphones.

We asked our amazing customers how they reuse and recycle their drawstring bags once they have received their bettyquette orders, and we loved their answers!
