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!

Daniel and the team at the Global Makeup Awards
Just a super quick update for those who haven't yet entered. The 2021 Global Green Beauty Awards close on 30th May, so you have until the end of this month to enter.
These awards celebrate the best in green and clean beauty. You'll see a range of categories such as for ethical, organic, natural or vegan beauty products. There is something for every beauty brand - from makeup to skincare, haircare to body care. We also have some fun ingredients based categories such as best 'honey' product or best 'charcoal' product.
Answers to some common FAQs which have been coming in.
There are no launch date requirements - this means the product doesn't have to be a new launch. This helps to keep things ethical as a brand can keep to one product and marketing materials.
We require 6 x product samples - these can be miniatures. If coming from outside of UK we ask you to put that these are PR samples as Brexit has caused a bit of chaos with shipping from outside of UK since January!
We don't require official certification. This as it can be expensive for smaller brands to provide and we want this green beauty awards to be accessible to beauty brands - big and small. Saying that - though we don't ask for official certification you can 1) absolutely show it if you have it 2) do ask you to enter categories you genuinely believe are relevant.
What does 'ethical' mean as a category? This is open to your interpretation. It needs to be green and clean - maybe low waste, or zero miles, or with a village kick-back scheme to help smaller communities. Maybe it is low carbon or maybe you re-plant trees in order to offset emissions.
In other news, our inaugural ASIA 2021 Global Makeup Awards will be announced this Thursday! We are so excited about celebrating Asian and Australian and New Zealand Beauty awards winners. Stay tuned!

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!
