As we near the end of the month, I want to squeeze in one more blog with some more information about some recent winners at the 2021 UK Global Makeup Awards. It’s really such a treat being able to work alongside such inspiring brands, writing these blogs is a lot of fun and I do urge you to check out some of the Gold Winners we’re looking at today if you haven’t already! So, without further delay, let’s go to the first company who won in our beauty awards!
Alice in Beautyland won gold for Best Luxury Makeup Brand. Inspired by Lewis Caroll’s famous protagonist, the team want to create products that fit in with Alice’s adventurous and courageous approach. Founded by sisters Eva and Aroa, both of whom grew up with sensitive skin and an understanding of how difficult it was to find makeup products which would work for them, Alice in Beautyland champions the diversity of beauty and challenges dated stereotypes and preconceptions. Their fantastic makeup collection includes KISS ME Nº1 WHITE RABBIT LIP BALM, KISS ME LIPSTICK, and BEAUTY ME MINERAL FOUNDATION. All of which were judged as winners in the Global Makeup Awards 2021.
BEST ORGANIC BEAUTY BRAND GOLD WINNER from the UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards went to Dr Botanicals. Once again we find a fantastic brand that has its roots a long way back and is born partially due to an inspirational parental figure. In the case of Dr Botanicals, founder Richard grew up in an innovative environment, his father was a chemist who began creating skin treatments in 1958 while at university. Dr Botanicals was started in 2011 and since then has become a leading luxury vegan brand, while also being behind Organic & Botanic, and the 100% natural brand; Apothecary.
Bio-Oil’ Natural Skincare Oil won gold in the BEST NATURAL PRODUCT category. Launched in 1987, at a time when all other skin products were either creams or lotions, Bio-Oil were pioneers in the use of oil on scars and stretchmarks. Last year they launched a Natural Skincare Oil which uses 100% natural oils and follows on from the success of their original Skincare Oil which was the first product to be scientifically proven to have effective results on improving the appearance of scars and stretch marks. This year marks the launch of a high oil cream moisturiser and , as ever, the team continues to focus on research, leaving distribution matters and sales for licensed skincare companies to deal with.
Forever Living Aloe Liquid Soap were our BEST LIQUID SOAP GOLD WINNER. Founded in 1978 by Rex Maughan, Forever living has transformed from into a huge player in the beauty industry, with a global team of clearly passionate and dedicated colleagues. They know the value of Aloe Vera’s properties and as a result, have created an amazing hand sanitizer which kills 99.9% of bacteria while still being gentle on the skin and giving a beautiful citrus scent.
So, that’s a closer look at some of our recent Gold Winners in the UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards. Aren’t their stories fascinating? We’ll be back soon with more info about some other winners from our beauty awards such as our BEST HAND CREAM GOLD WINNER for Zoetic Lemongrass & Ylang Ylang CBD Hand Cream.
Until next time!
Bye bye from Daniel!
What an exciting time! Last week we announced the winners of the 2021 UK Global Makeup Awards.
This is the most thrilling part of the job and we absolutely love being able to provide recognition to the best in the business! Read the full list of UK winners here on our website which includes reading our free beauty magazine Global Makeup Magazine which goes into more details on all of this year's beauty awards winners.
In today’s blog, we’d like to shine a light on some of the skincare winners, so you know a little more about the products as well as the people and companies behind them!
Let’s begin with EcoTan by Sonya Driver with the Super Citrus Cleanser which deservedly won gold for the Best Cleanser and silver for Hempitan for the category of Best Fake Tan! The story behind the brand Eco by Sonya is both touching and inspiring. After going through an extremely traumatic period and having her life turned upside down, Sonya then discovered her sister had to have a melanoma removed from her arm, leaving a significant scar. After discovering that tanning products which were being advertised as 99% natural were actually very misleading, Sonya decided to start her own brand. The brand now boasts a range of great products and Sonya says the Super Citrus Cleanser is her favourite as it cleanses skin beautifully in a non-harmful way. Also, the bottle is so big that she also uses it as body lotion!
Now, we’ll take a deeper look at the Gold Winner for best toner! SkinChemists Advanced Brightening Toner beat some stiff competition to walk away with the award, now let us tell you a little more about their story and you might see why they also won one of our most prestigious categories - Gold for Best Luxury Skincare brand as well as a few other wins under their belt in this year's 2021 UK Global Makeup Awards.
Richard Walker, the founder and MD of SkinChemists is clearly very proud of both the brand and its history, and it’s easy to see why. The company started eleven years ago although Richard grew up around skincare products, his father being a chemist who was passionate and clear about wanting to create products which would make the world a better place! Richard also has a very clear goal! He states that his objective for SkinChemists is to become the world’s #1 cosmeceutical brand. He is also understandably proud of their remarkable achievement of selling 1,500 units within 24 hours of their website first going live!
The Advanced Brightening Toner is a fantastic product which gives skin a healthy, even glow and radiates health. It's also great for acne care as well as maintaining skin elasticity and providing smoothing, softening and moisturising properties.
So once again, big congratulations to Skinchemists London and to EcoTan by Sonya. Both deserved Gold Winners at this year’s UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards and both with wonderful and inspiring back stories behind the brands. We honestly think that the companies that clearly have a strong passion for what they do always create the best products and it’s so interesting to read about their journeys and the reasons behind them wanting to create their own products!
Well, that’s it for now but keep your eyes peeled as we have several more In The Spotlight blogs planned over the next weeks as we look forward to learning more about the winners of this year’s UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards!
See you soon!
