Give a second life to your boxes

You’ve just received your purchase order in our 100% recycled kraft box. What can you do with it after the unboxing? Here's how you can reuse it in a simple, useful and funny way!


1. Transform it into a magazine holder! All you’ll need is a pair of scissors and your Freshly box will become a perfect holder to keep your favourite magazines and books in order.

2. Turn it into a jewellery organiser! Use your Freshly box to store your jewelry or the precious objects that you like to keep safe. You can also use the small boxes of your empty serums to collect your earrings without losing or breaking them.

Give a second life to your bottles

If you’ve enjoyed your Freshly product to its last drop, it’s time to proudly show another empty bottle! How can you restyle and reuse it for a new purpose? Here’s some creative ideas to use them again!
