Infinity | Phillipa Bridges - bringing modular design into the beauty industry for a more eco-friendly approach.
Infinity mascara is a refillable mascara product, and service solution that has been designed for reuse and longevity. The mascara is applied to the lashes with a 3D-printed fingertip, made from flexible and standard resins with a material extrusion printing process, that fits the individuals unique finger form.
It has been estimated that Infinity saves 25 mascara bottles from landfill per person over 10 years.
This project was the RSA Student Design Awards winning response to the Circular Futures brief sponsored by Unilever.

What are eyelash mites?
More formally known as Demodex mites, these tiny creatures live on the face and are typically concentrated around the pores and hair follicles of the eyebrows, eyelashes, cheeks, and nose. They are about 0.1-0.4 mm in length, and therefore cannot be seen by the naked eye. There are two species of the Demodex mites, Demodex folliculorum and Demodex brevis.One symptom of eyelash mites is the presence of a clear or yellowish substance that encircles the base of the eyelashes. It is made up of the oil and dandruff that is stirred up by the mites as they burrow into the hair follicles. These tiny droplets can only be seen with the help of a microscope.
Itching of the eyebrows and eyelids, particularly in the morning, is also a common symptom of eyelash mites. This occurs when the eyelash mites are exposed to light and they bury themselves into the hair follicles looking for darkness, leading to irritation.
Much like the swelling and itching that occurs after a mosquito bite, some people are allergic to the bite of an eyelash mite. This will result in flushed, inflamed eyelids and itching around the bite area.
Dry eye syndrome can also occur due to eyelash mites. Eyelash mites can affect the oil production of the glands (Meibomian Gland) within the eyelids. Without the presence of oil, tears will not properly lubricate the eye, which can cause the eyes to burn, feel itchy, and turn red.
Styes and chalazia are often singular, red bumps that can appear on either the lower or upper eyelid. These bumps are caused by an inflamed or blocked oil gland on the eyelid. They can be red and painful, sometimes hard, and may blur or block vision, or cause an increase in tears. #lashes#lashextensions#lashtrainer#lasheducator#eyelashes#eyelashextensions#eyelashtraining
Perfect Selfie!!! Prior to getting started with Reverse. I had sun damaged skin. My skin was dull and aging fast. I love the sun however my skin was paying a high price for it. I used all kinds of high-end counter products. Nothing was working. I was totally frustrated. A friend introduced me to the products and I thought what could I lose, there is a 60 day moneyback guarantee. Within two weeks my face was smoother and clearer. My daughter told me that my face was glowing! And I'm not pregnant LOL. So grateful I said yes! If this hits home with you, let's connect and chat!
