How to Find the Best Black Friday Deals - everything Beauty!
Today’s blog is going to be a little different to ones I’ve posted recently where I’ve written about past winners of the Global MakeUp Awards, their stories and their goals for the future.
With the famous (or infamous!) Black Friday approaching, some of us will have possibly delayed buying products which we have wanted in hope of getting a good discount among the Black Friday sales - and we have especially had our eyes on everything beauty!
Certainly the news has focused in recent years on the negative sides of the sales, concentrating on arguments over widescreen TVs and impossibly long queues but that is probably misrepresentative of the bigger picture. Anyway, today let’s bounce around some ideas on how to make the most of the sales!
Now, the first piece of advice that I can give is to start looking for bargains now. Not only do lots of companies start their sales early (this can get them extra sales and spread out their extra work load) but it also gives us a chance to check pre-sales prices and see if the deals are really as good as they look! We all know that artificially inflating prices then advertising a massive discount is one of the oldest tricks in the book so make sure to check prices across different retailers! Another good reason to start your search is now that there is a lower chance of the product you want being sold out!
These sales are a good way for us to get our Christmas Shopping done without having to brave the packed high streets on Christmas Eve! I’ve been there and it’s all a bit much! So, if we know any little people who might appreciate a toy or two under the Christmas Tree, we could also consider getting their gifts during the Black Friday sales. Children’s toys are notoriously expensive so a little planning might well save us a fair amount of money!
If you are having trouble choosing what toys to buy, you’ll find that there are a lot of websites that offer up to date advice on toys for children of all different age groups. Simply searching Google for Best Christmas presents for a ten year old will give you some great inspiration. I’ve just checked and there are lots of things my kids would absolutely love! However, most of them are linked to Amazon via affiliate links so you may not find Black Friday Deals this way! But many products on Amazon are sold via small independent shops which you can search for directly. You may well find them at a better price this way and they could be advertising Black Friday deals for direct sales! This also avoids putting more money in billionaires pockets!
If you are looking for a present for a loved one, here at Global Makeup Awards we recommend the L’Occitane reusable calendar. This is a wonderful green alternative to regular calendars. Check it out here! It is an amazing beauty buy and perfect for a gift for any woman in your life - mum, sister, girlfriend or wife. Not only is it filled with amazing beauty products but you can also year after year and put your own treats in it. It comes in at a hefty £160 (worth £236) but it contains 24 amazing beauty gifts. It includes all of the following:
This L'occitane 2021 Christmas advent calendar contains:
• 75ml Almond Shower Oil
• 5ml Herbae par L'OCCITANE Eau de Parfum
• 50ml Shea Intensive Hand Balm Travel Size
• 70ml Verbena Shower Gel
• 30ml Shea Butter Hand Cream
• 15ml Almond Supple Skin Oil
• 75ml Intensive Repair Conditioner
• 15g Almond Crunchy Muesli Scrub
• 2.8g Sunday Pinknic Intense Fruity Lipstick
• 100ml Lavender Foaming Bath
• 15ml Relaxing Pillow Mist
• 50ml Almond Milk Concentrate
• 12ml Shea Ultra Rich Lip Balm Certified Organic
• 8ml Divine Cream
• 10ml Verbena Eau de Toilette
• 7.5ml Néroli & Orchidée Eau de Toilette
• 75ml Intensive Repair Shampoo
• 30ml 30ml Oil-To-Milk Facial Make-up Remover
• 30ml Almond Delicious Hands
• 30ml Immortelle Essential Water
• 8ml Precious Cream
• 30ml Shea Butter Foot Cream
• 5ml Overnight Reset Serum
• The Petit Remedy.
We personally already love the Relaxing Pillow Mist and the Shea Intensive Hand Balm. We love how it is also a complete range of products, from lipsticks, to shampoo to hand-cream to foot-cream. So you won't be ending up with duplicates of the same 'type' of product. This truly is the best Christmas gift for any beauty lover with all these must-have products.
Wow, I’m out of time again! Already! Well, all the best with your deal hunting! Do let me know how you get on and share any bargains you find!
Ciao for now
Hi again everybody!
In my last blog I took a deeper look into the stories behind some of the winning brands at the 2021 USA Global Makeup Awards.
It’s really interesting how different companies have their own different approaches to their companies and their products. Speaking of which, Scandinavian companies often seem to share similar values and approaches and the 2021 Scandinavian Global Makeup Awards are now open for entries. These will be our last awards of 2021 and we are always very excited about them as Scandinavia is a heavyweight in the beauty world with its multifunctional products which usually have very trendy packaging and favour a minimalistic design. They also tend to use high quality, locally sourced natural ingredients.
October 1st 2021 - Awards open for entries
November 25th 2021 - Awards entries close
December 20th 2021 - Winners Announced Online
Let’s now take a closer look at some of the winners from last year’s 2020 Scandinavian Global Makeup Awards
We’ll begin with the BEST CLEANSER GOLD WINNER which was Marina Miracle with their Flower Berry Essence Sweet & Creamy Oil Cleanser
Marina Miracle was founded by Marina Elisabeth Engervik who had first-hand experience of skin problems and the challenge of finding suitable treatments as she was born with atopic eczema and it was so bad that aged just 4 she ended up in hospital. As she grew up she continued to struggle with acne, sensitive and irritated skin but was unable to find any treatments that would keep her skin healthily balanced!
Determined to find a solution that would work for her and others she committed to research and scientific studies until she was ready to make her own formulas. Initially, the new products worked wonders on her own skin and then for friends and family. Soon word got round and a wonderful new business was born!
Now let’s look at Esse Skincare who were our BEST ANTI AGEING PRODUCT GOLD WINNER with their Resurrect Serum. Their founder, Trevor Steyn comes from a scientific background, having studied organic chemistry which then led to a particular interest in Africa’s plants and their potential for skin care. He began his research into Kigelia africana, the African Sausage tree, spending two years formulating his products in preparation for launching Esse two years later. HIs goal for the company is to play a role in “creating a beautiful, indefinitely sustainable future,”
Finally, we have BEST BATH / SHOWER PRODUCT GOLD WINNER - Sweden Eco with their Shampoo for hair and body
Sweden Eco by Rosenserien is sold across 150 Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark and Serbia. The brand was founded 40 years ago when founder, Laine Nilsson, became aware that the products she was using in her job at a hairdressing salon were negatively affecting her skin. Once she identified the cause of the irritation, she began to examine the ingredients of the products and soon identified her mission as to provide clean and toxin-free skincare to people. Her daughter,Carina Swartz now runs the company!
So there we have three wonderful Scandinavian brands who were successful at least year’s Scandinavian Global Makeup Awards.
Thanks for joining me for a closer look at their stories, I’ll be back soon!
Ciao for now!
Graydon Skincare, The Humble Co. and Juice Beauty - winners in the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards with their incredible bamboo products
Hi again everyone!
I hope you are good and September is going well! Personally, I’m always a bit sad about the end of summer but sometimes September can be a really great month with good weather and smaller crowds! Here in Italy the weather has been really good and it's still warm enough to eat outside yet cool enough to sleep at night. Thank goodness!
In the last blog we explored the stories behind some of the winners from the last Global Green Beauty Awards, specifically those with hemp as an ingredient!
In today’s blog I want to take a better look at the winners of the Best Bamboo Product category, a new category within our Green Beauty Awards.
Let’s begin with the Gold Winner which was Graydon Skincare with their Bamboo Charcoal Konjac Sponge. This product is 100% vegan and 100% biodegradable. It becomes jelly like when wet, but when dry, it shrinks in size ready for the next use. Made with 100% biodegradable konjac plant fiber and bamboo charcoal, this sponge is the ultimate tool to detoxify pores, smooth your skin and thoroughly cleanse your face. This product was a truly brilliant entry in the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards and was a well deserved winner. Bamboo is one of those miracle ingredients which can be used so many ways in the beauty industry.
This Canadian company has been going for about nine years and founder Graydon Moffat featured last month on City TV Breakfast television (see here). Interviewed in her immaculate kitchen, Graydon explained how her previous experience as a yoga instructor and a vegan chef as well as her holistic approach feeds into her philosophy behind her skincare business.
During the TV interview Graydon explains that her mission is to give people the chance to have a good skin day every day through products with simple, natural ingredients and to play a part in people all over the world feeling good about themselves! I love how simply and sincerely she states that and it’s clear that she loves her work! Additionally, the website proudly declares their ingredients to be dermatologist and clinically tested, hypoallergenic, non-irritating, vegan as well as cruelty-free.
Silver winner was The Humble Co. for their Interdental Brush / Bamboo. Established in 2013 by dentist Noel Abdayem and based in Sweden they follow the typical Scandinavian model which loves simplicity and efficiency. Inspired by a trip to Jamaica where he did voluntary work, Noah returned and set up the company which boasts products in over 40,000 stores and clinics worldwide.
It’s not surprising that they are so popular as the oceans are filled with old plastic toothbrushes (every single year we go through 10 billion plastical oral care products). It's clear that there is not only a demand but an absolute necessity for The Humble Co. to continue with its fight to give us high quality oral care in an environmentally friendly way!
Bronze winner was the super Juice Beauty for their Bamboo Pore Refining Mask. We loved this mask as it keeps help spots at bay. It contains bamboo charcoal & kaolin clay to help detox; Aspen bark to help smooth & hydrate, and exfoliating polyhydroxy acids for a softer, smoother complexion.
Founder Karen Behnke already had a wealth of experience as an entrepreneur in the wellness industry but her pregnancy at 40 and the changes in her hormonal balance inspired her to develop a skincare product which would work for others like her who are concerned that our skin absorbs the products we use on it and wanted effective solutions which were not harmful to the body or the environment. Her goal was not just to provide products that were as good as conventional options, but actually better. Consequently she spent five years working with scientists to explore complex organic formulations. Juice Beauty was founded in 2005 and is Vegan, Cruelty Free, Sustainable and they use Certified Organic Ingredients.
So, thanks for joining me for a closer look at the newest category for our 2021 Green Beauty Awards and at this year’s winners!
I’ll be back soon to delve deeper into the stories behind more of our winners.
Ciao for now!

Some more winners from our beauty awards.... including Ayumi, Creightons, & Other Stories, FFS and St. Moriz
In today’s blog let’s take a better look at winners from our hair and body categories in the UK 2021 Global Makeup Awards!
Gold Winner of the Best Shampoo award was Ayumi with their super Moringa & Neem Shampoo. This product beat a lot of strong competition thanks to its natural ingredients including Argan Oil and Moringa Seed Oil which keep hair moisturized and nourished while removing grease and cleaning beautifully.
Founded around 10 years ago by Sheilesh Shah (also known as Shi) who had already amassed a wealth of knowledge around plant and herbal based remedies from his father who used natural ingredients to provide traditional indian remedies to heal his patients. Ayumi are certified by PETA, Vegan Skincare and Cruelty Free International
& Other Stories is a company which began when a few creative types found each other, each with thousands of different ideas but the shared dream to provide freedom of expression to women via a single brand. They now have ateliers in Stockholm, Los Angeles and Paris. & Other Stories were worthy winners of our Best Shower Product Gold Award for their Lärkstaden Shower Oil. This shower oil is registered by the Vegan Society and the bottle is made with recycled PCR plastic.
Best Hair Masque/ Treatment Gold Award Winner went to Creightons Pro-Keratin Repairing Deep Treatment Masque. This fantastic masque revitalises dry and damaged hair through its intensive moisturising and strengthening properties. Cruelty-free and with natural actives, this once a week treatment is also formulated with Keratin to give hair more shine and make it more manageable.
Professionally formulated with Keratin to intensively care for dry, damaged hair. Use once a week to strengthen and repair, leaving hair soft, shiny and more manageable.
In our BEST FAKE TAN category, we had two joint winners for gold! They were FFS Self-Tanning Mousse and St Moriz Spray tan in a can.
FFS Managing Director Liz Needham states that although they are a small company, they like to aim big! They also do not compromise on their strong values, sourcing their products locally wherever possible, making a genuine effort to become carbon-neutral and working on a 100% cruelty-free basis. Also vegan friendly, this amazing mousse dries quickly and hydrates the skin giving a beautiful, healthy glow.
St. Moriz Clear Spray Tan in a Can is a hassle-free, easy way to get a gorgeous glow and is really easy to use! Another plus is that it doesn’t leave marks on clothes or bedding. The 360° spray means it can be applied in all directions, even upside down, making this a very handy piece of kit and the results are incredible!
Founded in 2007 by a team of self-confessed self tan addicts, St Moriz are dedicated to the cause of improving tanning products! Mot only that, their products are clean, vegan-friendly, non-toxic and cruelty free.
Thanks to all these gold winners for their brilliant products and their obvious passion for what they do! It meant for so many great entries for Body and Hair categories in the 2021 Global Makeup Awards. We appreciate it and love seeing so many game-changing new products by different brands in our UK Beauty Awards!
Ps - did you know that the entries close soon for the 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards? Be sure to enter your green and clean brand by 30th May!
Until next time!
Daniel and the team at the Global Makeup Awards
In this blog I would like to shine a Spotlight on 2020 Winners of the Global Green Beauty Awards.
But, before I do. Here are some key dates for your diaries regarding this year’s awards!
May 30th 2021 - Awards entries close
The 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards are open, but i thought it would be nice if we look back at last year's winners. Some great ethical brands in a sea of quality competition all striving to be more green and clean in the beauty industry.
Here are all the winners from last year. https://www.globalmakeupawards.com/2020-global-green-beauty-awards.html#/
Last year two amazing products shared the Gold Award for The Best Ethical Beauty Product .
The first was Dr. PAWPAW for their Scrub and Nourish Lip Scrub and Lip Balm duo. This vegan product comes in beautiful and eye-catching packaging (100% recyclable with recycling instructions, naturally) and is multi-use as it can also be used on hands, heels and elsewhere to treat dry skin and flakey dry patches.
Dr. PAWPAW’S story began in 2013 when married couple Johnnie and Pauline found out that their little girl was suffering from eczema. At this point, unable to find a cream without steroids to treat her, they decided to create alternative natural solution themselves. The team has a strong sense of values and all their products, which are stocked all over the world, are animal cruelty-free and certified by PETA.
Dr. PAWPAW shared their award with Deardot, Yuja Cleansing Seal but we’ll talk more about their story another time because at this moment, I want to tell you about Nu Skin's new nutricentials range.
Nu Skin’s Nutricentials® Bioadaptive Skin Care™ is an innovative range of skin care essentials produced from carefully selected ingredients and clean formulas which look after the your skin as well as our planet. The collection features products in such categories as: cleansers, toners, serums, moisturizers, exfoliators and masks with blends of bioadaptive botanicals that help skin adapt to its ever-changing environment.
Nu-skin have shared a useful skincare routine, using Nutricentials. Follow this link for the full routine.
Finally, I want to tell you about a cult classic, Liz Earle's hot polish cleanser (this renowned product won a gold in the 2020 Global Green Beauty Awards).
This marvelous cleanser is made with cocoa butter which softens and moisturises, and also includes rosemary, chamomile and eucalyptus which help to purify and soothe skin. This cream not only cleanses and removes daily grime but can also be used on mascara.
It is recommended to use the cream with a pure cotton cloth to exfoliate and reveal brighter, healthier skin.
So there we have three wonderful products from brands that really do care about creating green products. Do check them out if you haven’t already!
We’ll be back soon with another showcase of more winners from last year’s awards.
All the best
Dan and the rest of the Global Green Beauty Awards team
My recent blogs showcasing some of our recent 2020 UK Global Makeup Awards winners have been pleasingly popular, I must say I love writing them! Today I would like to highlight some more wonderful
companies which not only have super products deserving of beauty awards but also have such
fascinating back-stories and positive contributions to our industry.
BEST ANTI AGEING PRODUCT GOLD WINNER
24K Gold & Manuka Honey Face Oil
Manuka Doctor was gold winner for best anti ageing product in the UK 2020 Global Makeup Awards. Manuka Doctor is a company with a firm foot still in its homeland among the fresh New Zealand
mountains where their expert Bee Keepers source high-quality, quality authentic Mānuka Honey.
The last few years has seen demand for the honey increase dramatically as more and more people
become tuned-in its well-being properties.
The origins of the company go all the way back to 1909 and the Manuka Doctor strives to keep their
production techniques as clean and pure now as they were in the beginning. Their philosophy is to
use the best ingredients from New Zealand and the remain a rare example of a New Zealand honey
company which runs its private business in a fully integrated way.
We loved this product because we could see an approved appearance of our skin, reduced wrinkles and improved skin radiance. It is 2020's must have beauty product.
BEST BEAUTY TOOL GOLD WINNER
Skinvigorate Sonic Skin Care System
Mary Kay Mission – Enriching the lives of women and their families around the world. That’s a great mission statement! Furthermore, Mary Kay back it up by creating excellent products
which really do have a positive effect on women and their families!
Founded in 1963, Mary Kay’s original offer consisted of one foundation product along with four
skincare products. By the late eighties they had banned animal testing and created a recycling
programme. Soon after they achieved the impressive milestone of $1Billion wholesale sales.
According to Instagram Mary Kay China has just celebrated its 25 th Birthday.
The company’s standpoint on equality is inspirational and I absolutely love how they promote their
beauty products from a feminist standpoint as well as vocally getting behind the recent #BLM
movement. This is a company run by people who know who they are and what change they want to
make in the world. Mary Kay’s huge success only underpins the notion that you don’t have to
abandon your values to be successful.
The Skinvigorate Sonic Skin Care System provides you with a cleaner, impurity free face in just 60 seconds. It was truly deserving of a gold win in the UK 2020 Global Makeup Awards. The Skinvigorate also removes 4 x more dirt, makeup and pollutants compared to just hand cleaning at home. This means you are left with super clean skin, that looks fresher and rejuvenated. It really is a must have cleanser, up there with LumiSpa and Foreo Luna 3 skincare cleansers.
I’d love to tell you more about these brands but probably the best thing you can do is head over to
their websites to find out more about their history, their products and their latest news.
They are thoroughly deserving of their beauty awards and in this tough year so far, I definitely think
any products that help us feel better and healthier are a great thing,
By the way, here in Italy the weather is super-hot, just as it has been in the UK, and it is great to see
lots of German tourists have come back to Italy as soon as they could, to enjoy the food, culture and
beautiful scenery. It’s a huge boost not only to the tourism sector but to everyone’s mood. Living in
a ghost town started off like a novelty but it soon became quite draining!
Also, thank you for all your entries in the Global Green Beauty Awards and the 2020 USA Global Makeup Awards - watch out for their entry deadlines closing in mid july and 1st of August respectively.
Until next time!
We thought we would look into and explore what is happening to the beauty industry during the coronavirus pandemic. There's some pretty scary stats out there about the economy in general - four days ago the BBC reported that the economy has drunk a record 20.4% in April. The big question in our industry though is, how is the beauty and cosmetics industry being affected?
Firstly - some products are not only on the up, but are spiralling into the stratospheres of success - bars of soap, liquid soap, hand sanitiser and disinfecting products. We have also seen beauty brands help out - one of our winner's in the UK 2020 Global Makeup Awards, the L'Occitane Group, has manufactured over 70,000 litres of hand sanitizer for health officials.
As spas and salons have been forced to shut by government mandate (Treatwell is currently suspended), we have also seen a huge rise in home treatments. That includes home face masks, box hair dye kits and home hair removal kits. At this point we of course want to mention our favourite hair removal kit, and winner in the UK 2020 Global Makeup Awards - No Mo-Stache's No Mo-Unibrow.
On the other hand, the beauty events calendar has been thrown into the air. Beauty Awards with galas have had to cancel the galas of course and stream them online or to announce them online. Beauty Expos such as Bologna's Cosmoprof has been postponed until next year and will be Spring 2021. People are also looking after themselves more in lockdown - we are seeing 40% of high income earners looking to actively manage their stress, including with at home spa treatments.
Brands have been forced online, and have been selling through their website, facebook, Instagram and other online channels. Many, who haven't been able to adapt to selling online, have ceased business for months, It's not all doom and gloom for the beauty industry though. Euromonitor international predicts that the beauty sector, both luxury and non luxury, is set to fall by just 2% this year. It is a negative fall, but it could have been much worse. For example, comparatively, the luxury goods market will fall 18% this year globally. As a side note, Switzerland is seeing a fall of 25% for the luxury goods market, which is a whopping fall of 1 in 4. We are also expected to see an economic bounce back, and we are hoping some consumers have experimented with new beauty brands during lockdown.
What is the Global Makeup Awards and Global Green Beauty Awards seeing within the beauty and cosmetics industry?
In addition to the above - we thought you might want to see closer to home our own experiences and expectations for the beauty industry during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Of course we have seen business struggle with warehouse issues, particularly at the beginning of the outbreak when there were no organised ways to manage social distancing, but that now seems to almost have disappeared. People have more guidance and know how to work appropriately. We are also seeing people want to use marketing more than ever to promote their brands online. We have seen a monumental number of entries in the Global Green Beauty Awards. This awards is green and clean, and it seems the coronavirus outbreak has also led people to be more environmentally aware. This has been the perfect backdrop to enter the 2020 Global Green Beauty Awards.
Though we had to postpone Asia as a beauty awards which was due to launch, regrettably, during the Chinese coronavirus outbreak, as a whole the other regions haven't been affected and are going ahead as scheduled. As an online beauty awards and makeup awards, we are online only so thankfully we have not had to cancel any galas and therefore on a personal level haven't been too affected by the crisis.
We hope everyone is slowly getting back to normal and looking forward to nominating their brands in our upcoming USA Global Makeup Awards (An American Beauty Award) and the Global Green Beauty Awards (an environmentally friendly green beauty award).
Best wishes the GMA team xx

Scandinavian Beauty Awards – Spotlight on past Winners
So, as you know, last December we announced the winners of the 2019 Scandinavian Beauty Awards.
Today I would like to shine a spotlight on some of the winners. We’ll delve a little more into who
they are and what their mission is and we’ll also take a look at their products.
FOREO deservedly won the Gold Award for Best Innovative Beauty Product at last year’s
Scandinavian Beauty Awards. They also took home the silver award for Best Scandinavian Beauty
Brand. Let me tell you a little more about them!
Just six years ago Foreo consisted of just two Swedish-based employees, would you believe that the
company now consists of more than 3,000 people all over the world. With over 20 million products
shipped, these are certainly exciting times at the company!
The company approach is attain expert level though action and experimentation and so far it’s
working having achieved great success with the introduction of the LUN line of T-sonic facial
cleansing and anti-aging devices, they are now launching their impressive ISS— the first ever
silicone electric toothbrush.
The UFO smart mask treatment is the result of an ingenious combination of advanced dermal
technologies with Korean mask formulas. It is a 90-second mask treatment combining device-
activated formulas with heating, cooling, and T-Sonic pulsations. It works fantastically on all skins
types and is often particular interest to those looking to treat fine lines and wrinkles, pores, and
dullness and uneven texture.
It also brightens your complexion and kills the bacteria which can cause acne. There is a pre-
programmed setting with the perfect temperature and pulsation intensity, this smart mask
treatment is a fast and effective facial treatment which will transform not only your complexion but
also your beauty regime.
Winners of our Best Cleanser Gold Award were BAIE BOTANIQUE with their fantastic Rose &
Cupuacu Enzyme Cleaner. They also won the Best Vegan Brand Award.
The company, founded by Sophie Oliver, a professional make-up artist with over 20 years’
experience in the beauty industry and a follower of a plant-based lifestyle. At Baie Boutique, Sophie
has achieved something really wonderful by combining her professional enthusiasm with her
personal lifestyle and passion to create a skincare range which is full of natural ingredients and
avoids preservatives and additional ingredients wherever necessary.
In a recent blog post (https://www.baiebotanique.com/blogs/baie-blog/introducing-rose-renew-
rose-and-cupuacu-enzyme-cleanser) – Baie Botanique share some really fascinating extra
information on the rose and cupuacu enzyme cleanser. The cleanser (82.65% Organic | 100% Natural
| PETA certified Vegan and Cruelty-free) contains rosewater, rose absolute and rosehip oil,
ingredients which have been used in beauty regimes for thousands of years and are known to have
been trusted by Cleopatra and, more recently, Duchess of Cambridge, Kate.
I have to say it’s a real privilege to be able to share a nit more information with you about our
previous winners. These companies are clearly built on foundations of passion and desire to help not
only people with their skincare, but also to do it in an ethically sound way. This certainly seems to be
the direction the industry is moving in and entries to our Green Beauty Awards are coming in thick
and fast. If your company would like to take part, please don’t hesitate to enter. Entries are open
