INDEPENDENT - SEP 2020
"We love the UpCircle chai soap bar (UpCircle, £9.99 for two), which is actually a two-in-one product, as the repurposed Chai spices act as a scrub on your skin too. In our review of the best plastic-free beauty products, our tester said: “After rubbing the bar all over our skin, we come out feeling sparkly clean with noticeably softer skin, too.” "
BEAUTY BAY- SEP 2020

BEAUTY BAY - AUG 2020
"The concept of ‘clean beauty’ is now so well-absorbed into the beauty industry that it can be hard to identify which brands are capitalising on the trend and which truly are true to the movement. When it comes to UpCircle Beauty however, there are no doubts. By sourcing and upcycling reusable ingredients from coffee shops to use in their products, the brand demonstrates exactly the kind of innovation and resourcefulness the beauty industry needs to make a difference. "
HELLO - AUG 2020
"UpCircle is making waves in the beauty industry for elevating leftover natural ingredients, bringing them back to life as beauty products for you to use. After discovering that one third of all food produced is wasted, and that food ingredients can have powerful effects on the body both inside and out, the founders of UpCircle decided to do something about it. The result? Beauty products that are created from discarded food ingredients. Genius."
WOMAN & HOME- AUG 2020
"UpCircle Coffee Body Scrub is made from used grounds from artisan coffee shops."
VOGUE- AUG 2020
"UpCircle creates beauty products from items that would otherwise go to waste. The brand repurposes by-products of the food and drink industry, using fruit stones left behind in oil production, coffee grounds from artisan cafes and spices left over from making chai syrup. This vegan, UK-made and cruelty free natural skincare range is packaged in recyclable cardboard, glass and aluminium."
