Beauty Business News : How The Beauty Industry Is Helping Even More – Beauty Article

Beauty Business News : How The Beauty Industry Is Helping Even More Right, so there are a few snippets of news other than how the beauty industry is helping out during the Covid 19 situation, so I’ll bullet point the helpers before getting to the other bits and pieces. Needless to say, things have more or less ground to a halt but there are a few beauty happenings that aren’t virus related. It’s not a comprehensive list but just the…

Beauty Business News : How The Beauty Industry Is Stepping Up – Beauty Article

Beauty Business News : How The Beauty Industry Is Stepping Up I’ve been covering this topic over on Instagram (@britbeautyblog) but not so much here so I thought I’d do a (requested) round up of how beauty brands are playing their part in helping to ease the current situation for those of you who don’t use other channels. Most big brands are actively working on how they can contribute but it’s wonderful to see smaller brands such as Pai Skincare…

Life Armour Supplement Drops | British Beauty Blogger [unpaid/ad/sample] I love a supplement – obviously at the moment gulping down Vitamin C and making sure my family are too – but I’ve never really taken supplement drops before. I guess we think about things in certain ways and when I look at the Life Armour bottles I think of serums!Life Armour Supplement DropsThese feel more relevant at the moment for obvious reasons, and I’ve taken Drops of Balance but not…

Erborian BB Crayon | British Beauty Blogger – Beauty Article

Erborian BB Crayon | British Beauty Blogger [unpaid/ad/sample] I like the multi-functionality of this new BB stick from Erborian. There are four shades – Clair, Nude, Dore and Caramel with the latter being the darkest and not, by the looks of it, dark enough for very deep tones.Erborian BB CrayonIn the picture above, you can see Nude and Clair, with Clair being a slightly more pink tone and Nude veering to yellow.Erborian BB CrayonIf you do find a tone match,…

Anna Sui Beauty Spring 2020 – Beauty Article

Anna Sui Beauty Spring 2020 [unpaid/ad/samples/affiliate] This post is a bit of a mash-up of the January launch Sui Black and the February launch of Midnight Flower (largely because I didn’t read the press release first – because I was in such a hurry to get the items in front of the camera – and didn’t realise I was looking at two separate collections).Anna Sui Beauty Spring 2020First, and deservedly so, the Face Colors. There are two options in this…

Beauty Business News : Corona Virus – Beauty Article

Beauty Business News : Corona Virus Anyone without their finger on the beauty pulse won’t realise how hugely the beauty industry relies on China. Therefore, without wishing to join any panic and realising that a shortage of lipstick is very much not a major problem, there are real implications for the beauty sector which could have very long-term effects. The evidence is already being felt, although on-line beauty retailers are reaping the short term benefits with a sales boost.The (huge)…

Augustinus Bader The Cream Review – Beauty Article

Augustinus Bader The Cream Review [unpaid/ad/sample/affiliate] I thought I’d do a quick update now that I’ve been using Augustinus Bader The Cream which has had so much hype across both print and on-line beauty pages. I used with with the Victoria Beckham x Augustinus Bader Serum over a period of roughly three weeks (I’ve had a top up of Profhilo in the past couple of days so any further results are null and void while that takes effect and I…

Is Suave now cruelty free? – Beauty Article

Is Suave now cruelty free? On February 12, 2020, Unilever announced that Suave is now PETA certified cruelty-free. What does that mean exactly? Can cruelty-free ethical shoppers buy Suave products now? Or is it a similar tactic like Dove and Wet N Wild performed to enter the cruelty-free market under a false premise? Suave has become the latest of Unilever’s beauty and personal care brands to gain global ‘cruelty-free’ accreditation from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).  Being cruelty-free means products and their ingredients…

Beauty Business News | British Beauty Blogger This week the Champneys Spa is in hot water for claiming that its apple crumble could reduce the risk of cancer, according to West Sussex County Council who launched a prosecution. The case was due to be heard this week but wasn’t when neither side’s lawyers turned up to the hearing.

Six reasons why you should try dupes for makeup or skincare – Beauty Article

Six reasons why you should try dupes for makeup or skincare Dupe is short for duplicate. Dupes are sort of like the generic of the makeup and skincare world. What is a dupe? A skincare or makeup dupe isn’t an exact carbon copy but a close similar. You can find products that are very similar in color and formulation. Dupes have the same active ingredients as the original. It is important to note that most dupes are never going to…

Physicians Formula is No Longer Cruelty Free – Beauty Article

Physicians Formula is No Longer Cruelty Free I have learned that Physicians Formula are selling in China (like Wet n Wild and NARS) and can no longer be considered cruelty free. I’m truly disappointed in this as they were one of my favorite brands and I just acquired the Healthy foundation, rose serum and a butter bronzer. Darn you Physicians Formula!! In order to qualify as cruelty-free, a product cannot “allow, conduct, commission, or pay for tests on animals for its…

Garden of Wisdom Pore Cleaning Powder – Beauty Article

Garden of Wisdom Pore Cleaning Powder [unpaid/ad/sample] When I was given this product, I was told it would be the best pore cleanser I’ve ever used.

Use Your Words With Care… – Beauty Article

Use Your Words With Care… There’s a point at which it’s enough – just enough. I didn’t know Caroline Flack but feel her death is a watershed moment and a wake-up call that’s so strong I don’t want to just ignore it. Caroline proved to be the very public face of consequence – that the rounding upon of celebrities, commentators, politicians or average joes by groups of people can have consequences so serious that there is no recovery from it.Being…

Beauty Business News | British Beauty Blogger – Beauty Article

Beauty Business News | British Beauty Blogger It looks like Roger & Gallet (currently L’Oreal owned) is up for sale to an investment fund (Impala) that also owns Augustinus Bader. I’ve done the obvious Googling to see if VB counts Impala as an investor as well – because that would suddenly make sense of the skin-care tie in – but don’t see anything. I think it could be a good move for Roger & Gallet because it is somewhat neglected…
