Wondering what all the Bolt Beauty fuss is about? This newly-launched range of skincare capsules has got the attention of many a beauty lover, thanks to the sustainable and travel-friendly format.

The main perk of these skincare drops is that you get exactly the right amount of product for your face with every single use. But once you've applied your skincare, the biodegradable capsules can also be disposed of by dissolving in boiling water or in your food waste bin. Genius.

Bolt Beauty drops are available in jars or compostable refill bags, the latter of which cost $7 less, and you can get 15% off your first order by signing up to the brand’s newsletter. Here's everything to know...

What different Bolt Beauty capsules are available?

Currently the brand has four different types of skincare capsules on offer.

  • Filthy Clean - cleanser
  • Mad About Moisture - moisturiser
  • Vitamin A Game - retinol
  • Glow Don't Shine - mattifying serum

Bolt Beauty Filthy Clean drops

An every day, non-foaming cleanser, Mad About Moisture is a thick, clear gel cleanser that goes milky upon contact with water before easily rinsing. It melts away make-up, including eye make-up, as well as other main offenders like pollution and dirt.

Bolt Beauty Vitamin A Game drops

The form of Vitamin A in question here is retinol, the clinically proven skin-firmer and smoother. At 0.15% concentration this is a great entry level if you're a newbie – just be sure to introduce to your skin gradually. You may experience some irritation initially and it's generally not suitable for very sensitive skins.

Bolt Beauty Glow Don't Shine drops

A mattifying serum that works to reduce shine and excess oil and tackle blemishes, this one smells minty fresh. Although they're at low concentrations, this formula does contain a few different essential oils and so may be one to avoid if you know these sensitize your skin.
