Good morning! Daniel here!
It is a beautiful day here in Italy. Lake Garda is so much fun during the summer. There are lots of small festivals at each town with great food, drink, and music. The midday sun is so strong during July, I normally try and avoid going out as it can be quite exhausting and instead work on the Global Makeup Awards (the USA is currently open for entries!) and the Global Green Beauty Awards. However, on Monday I broke my own rules and went to the beach with my SUP board to cool off. It was great but later I noticed that my shoulders were sunburnt. They really seem to suffer, no matter how much sunblock I apply but I’ve been moisturising them regularly since and they feel much better! I better return to my trust favourite by EK Sunscreens - and put on their SPF factor 50 Kawakawa & Tamanu Certified Natural Sun Protection to prevent myself from any future damage!
Last night I skipped the AC/DC tribute band playing in the park across the road because this morning
I had an early start. A free 1-hour yoga session down by the lake at 6:30am. Such a perfect spot and
the air was still nice and cool.
Anyway, today I want to shine a little light on a couple of winners from the last beauty awards - the UK 2020 Global Makeup Awards. I would like to begin with BEST MOISTURISER GOLD WINNER: Primex Iceland for their amazing ChitoCare Face Cream.
Naturally I’m drawn to moisturisers with a high SPF number anyway but these guys are so much
more than that. With their Headquarters based in Iceland, it is inevitable that Primex Iceland is influenced by its geographical surroundings and embraces the rich natural products which are native to the area.
In 1999, they opened a hi-tech factory in Siglufjordur dedicated to the production of chitin and
chitosan which promote skin-healing and protection. In 2012 they were awarded “The Icelandic
Innovation Award” for creating popular, commercial products underpinned by solid, rigorous
scientific research and testing.
Recently, Primex has provided emergency staff in Iceland’s national hospital with ChitoCare Medical
products to relieve the pain and discomfort from cracked skin after using strong hand sanitizers and
to protect them from irritation.
Now for another winner. This year’s BEST SHAMPOO / CONDITIONER GOLD WINNER in the UK 2020 Global Makeup Awards was Biovène Barcelona for their Argan Oil & Mint Hydrate Repair Conditioner In-A-Bar.
Here at the Global Makeup Awards, we really loved this innovative company and product. Rather
than using the traditional conditioner design, this product comes in a bar containing natural Argan
oil, Peppermint, Macadamia oil, Beeswax and Shea butter. Not only is it plastic-free (always a good
thing), it also reduces water waste and increases efficiency (1 bar provides 50% more treatments
than a typical bottle).
Additionally, the company has a strong no-cruelty ethos as well as supporting vegan lifestyles and embraces the beauty of diversity across the globe.
Please, please do try their conditioner in-a-bar. This is a wonderful idea which should really catch-
OK, thanks for reading another In the Spotlight Blog. I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I
enjoyed writing it. These guys are deserved winners of their beauty awards and I’m sure we’ll all be
hearing much more from them in the future!
Until next time, CIAO!!!
Don’t let’s be coy. Our V area needs as much love and attention as our faces. Being a delicate area, often with sensitive skin, it is important to use products specially designed for 'down there'! And our team are loving THE PERFECT V product range which also happens to have been a winner in the 2019 Scandinavian Global Makeup Awards.
Anyone who’s experienced an in-growing hair after shaving or a reaction to a soap or shower gel requiring a visit to the chemist will appreciate the use of a product dedicated for the vaginal area.
The ethos of this brand is to give women confidence and provide a positive image of themselves. Certainly being confident with your freshness at all times in this area is one less worry whatever age you are.
The ingredients are sourced from the Nordic home of this product featuring Arctic Cloudberry which has incredibly high levels of Vitamin C helping to enhance and brighten skin appearance. It also contains Omega -6 and -3 to promote healthy looking skin and vitamin A to rejuvenate the skin cells Bilberry extract is the skin conditioning agent containing anti ageing resveratrol and quercetin along with vitamins B C and E whilst it’s fruit has anti oxidant Properties.
The light fresh scent of elderflower also provides protection against free radical damage, lingonberries, the famous scandi super fruit, and sea buckthorn all contribute to the natural and soothing effect of the VV range. The judges loved the presentation of Vanicure essentials. Small enough to put in your hand luggage (30cc each item) the box contains one each of the VV Gentle Wash, the VV Gentle Exfoliator and V V Cream providing every step of your routine to moisturise and condition your skin. RRP $39.00.
Complement these with The perfect V Serum Very V which really calms irritated skin. The product may be for an area mostly kept under wrap but the packaging is so discreet no one will guess where it’s going to be applied. We all loved it !
This July's hottest shower gels as tried and tested by the Global Makeup Awards and Global Green Beauty Awards team
Don't be caught out by July showers, indoors not outdoors!
We’ve been having a great time testing shower gels and smelling really sweet. Shower gels are such a pleasure to use and can really awaken and revitalise your morning routine. When choosing a shower gel you've got to go for what is important for you.
Maybe you struggle waking up in the morning - in which case choose a citrusy shower gel with zest to wake you up. If you suffer from dry and dull skin you will need a more performance related shower gel that will hydrate your skin and leave it smooth - perhaps with a light exfoliation to remove dead skin cells. Or maybe for you it's all about the materials - is it organic, ethical, natural, zero waste? (If the last things are important to you then you will love reading about our 2020 Global Green Beauty Awards winners which will be announced in our e-magazine Global Makeup Magazine on 10th August.)
As shower gels cover such a huge range of personal choices whether though ingredients, strength or just personal taste, we thought we would touch on some of our July favourites from three well known brands, each with shower gels at a very similar price point, but all delivering something completely different.
We tested The Organic Pharmacy Shower Gel with Lemon & Eucalyptus, REN Clean Skincare Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium antifatigue Body Wash and Guava and Gold Paradise Found Bath and Shower Gel.
We’ve loved the healthy and refreshing fragrance when coming out of the shower after using The Organic Pharmacy’s Shower Gel with Lemon and Eucalyptus. You can buy it online for £25.95, in their shops (we love their flagship shop off Argyle Road near Oxford Street station, or even in Selfridges.) The eucalyptus in it has a really clean fragrance without being antiseptic. No sulphides in this product. Just the job to make you feel ready to face a Covid news week. We love the zesty scent which really awakens and refreshes in the morning.
RENs Clean Skincare Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium Antifatigue Bodywash, which has a RRP of £22.00 is also sulphide free and is infused with a blend of Anti-fatigue Essential oils. What better way to face a busy day.
What you may not have realised about this shower gel, is that is made from 100% recycled plastic, including using ocean plastic. If you are concerned about your plastic use, then this is a great green and clean brand to go for, as they are thinking ethically about their packaging and how they can re-use the plastic which is already out there. You can also enjoy its clean ingredients - Atlantic Kelp Extract is a source of essential minerals to nourish. Magnesium PCA helps moisturise the skin, it also contains Sage, Cypress, Geranium, Rosemary which provide a fresh, energising and uplifting scent.
And finally. Guava and Gold Paradise Found Bath and Shower Gel which has a RRP of £20.00. This shower gel left our judges feeling completely pampered and moisturised. In fact it won Gold in the UK 2020 Global Makeup Awards.
Paraben free and phthalate free fragrance, this is very much a gel based on the seductive scents Of exotic fruits and flowers and infused with jasmine, tuberose and a base of amber and pink cedar. You of course can't miss the gorgeous packaging of this product and the gold shimmer that it leaves you. A truly indulgent shower gel, this makes for a great present, or you can just spoil yourself.
So whatever takes your fancy from the range of products, you can see there is something perfect for everyone!
There is just one month left to enter the 2020 USA Global Makeup Awards.
This is our inaugural launch for the USA and we know it is going to be just as big as the UK Global Makeup Awards was.
It made sense to expand our awards to different regions across the globe, There are so many brands out there, and for America all the more so, there are so many great MADE IN THE USA brands! So it is time to celebrate them.
Beauty Awards in the USA
Beauty Awards are a big thing in the UK. In fact there are a tonne of them. We love to celebrate the best of the best new launches and consumers are always looking to find what is the hottest on trend beauty product on the market right now. But when you look to the USA, things have gone a bit quieter on the beauty awards and makeup awards front? There are the odd awards by magazines but not many awards that we can see which are independently judged and adjudicated by a team of beauty experts. For two countries with not only a shared language, but also a shared love of beauty products this seems to not align correctly. So we are delighted that the Global Makeup Awards has branched out and created an awards, just for America.
Products need to be available to purchase in America either by post or in shop in order to enter these awards. American beauty products are a huge thing. In fact - even Cosmo did an article for UK residents on what beauty products to buy in America if they are visiting there as not all are available to buy in the UK, making some products a bit like cult classics....especially when shopping in the famous ULTA and Sephora. I mean, some people even pack an extra suitcase when travelling to the USA just for beauty buys... oh and some Hershey's chocolate. In fact, in America, these are called the MVP Beauty Players - or in other words, the Most Valuable Player beauty brands.
Did you know Glossier (it's only been around since 2014 can you believe it!?) Drunk Elephant and CoverGirl were all American beauty brands? That's right. Some more hot American beauty brands out there right now and perhaps a little lesser known in the UK are BeautyCounter's tinted moisturizer, and RMS beauty un-coverup.
We've all heard of Kylie cosmetics here in the UK and we are hoping they will be entering the 2020 USA Global Makeup Awards. We'd love to try their Stormi palette with its unique periwinkle shade and beautiful butterfly packaging. Let's see how it rates against the other big palette players like Urban Decay's Naked palette. The Kylie Cosmetics brand was made famous by the Kylie Lip Kit - which sold both a lippie and a pencil for $36.
There is also Milk Makeup out there, which is an American brand from New York. They don't currently ship internationally which means it's time to book a flight and a suitcase if you want to get your hands on their Matcha stick cleanser.
Our 2020 USA Global Makeup Awards close in just one month. That's not much time to get entries in and we can't wait to see which hot hot hot products will be entering this year. We are of course looking for the best of new launches and are so excited to see who the winners will be in this year's American beauty awards.
Anywho, we will be announcing the winners for the USA Global Makeup Awards on 10th September - so keep an eye out - it's going to be one to watch if you want to keep up to date on the hottest beauty trends on the other side of the pond
The Global Makeup Awards team xx
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!
USA 2020 Global Makeup Awards launch June 1st 2020
We are ecstatic to announce the launch of the USA 2020 Global Makeup Awards. We had over 350 entrants for the UK awards, and we are sure we are going to beat this record with the USA.
The USA is the global leader in beauty and cosmetics which means we can't wait to see their hottest launches for 2020. We were so excited to go to the North America, Las Vegas COSMOPROF beauty event this year, which has been postponed. It typically attracts over 40,000 guests which is quite incredible. They are hoping their June dates will now be in September but due to the coronavirus outbreak this might be postponed again. Let's wait and see!
Regardless of Las Vegas Cosmoprof, we will be going ahead with the USA 2020 Global Makeup Awards. We have some key dates for your calender so be sure to put down the following for our beauty awards:

Global Beauty Awards and an update from Italy for all those curious from the UK and beyond!
Hi everyone, Dan from the Global Beauty Awards here again with a little update on the state of
things here in the lake garda region on Italy where the sun is shining but the beaches are empty, and
the bars are closed. Tomorrow we have an exciting announcement - at 5pm we will be announcing the winners of the UK 2020 Global Makeup Awards. There's been a record number of entries for this awards with over 350 entries! We couldn't believe how many big and small brands entered. If you are still looking to enter an award for your brand - our Global Green Beauty Awards are open for entry with categories for ethical, green, vegan, zero waste, plastic free and natural beauty brands.
I thought I would also give a little update on life at the moment in Italy where I am writing this from, as we really can't avoid discussing the coronavirus situation and how it is affecting everyday life in every country and of all walks of life. So, nearly eight weeks have passed since the Italian government declared a lockdown in the country and the rules have gradually become stricter. I live in a fairly small town of 7,000 inhabitants and local news and gossip spreads quickly round here!
Last week a citizen was fined 220 euros for not wearing a mask while walking his dog. In the Lombardy region it is now compulsory for anyone leaving the house to wear a mask or at least cover their face with a scarf or bandana. Then a few
days later, a woman who is in the process of moving from one house to another was fined 550 euros
for passing by her new house to pick up some things while on the way to the supermarket. So, I think
its fairly to say that the lockdown is being enforced quite strictly here.
The good news though is that the daily death rare, whilst still terrifyingly high, is going down and
hopefully the worst is behind us. The government is planning to re-open some businesses and we
are awaiting official confirmation of ‘phase 2’ plans. They are due to make an announcement today,
but we are expecting that on May 4 th some of the restrictions forbidding us to go out will be lifted.
That’s s huge relief as it is extremely eerie watching police cars slowly circle the block while playing a
pre-recorded message through a loudspeaker, warning residents to say in their houses. I’m a little
more used to the strange atmosphere in the supermarkets now although shopping is not the
highlight of me week and I’ve managed to stretch out to nine days between visits, even if that
means more meals of tuna and pasta than I’d normally like.
On the bright side, since the local beach, which is two minutes away, is out of bounds, I’ve had more
time to work with my colleagues on our next beauty awards. Actually, that’s not a chore because our
team rocks and we love our jobs. Still, paddle-boarding out on the lake is always pretty special.
So, what have we been up to? Well we opened for entries to the Global Green Beauty Awards a few weeks
ago and we’ve already had an impressive number of entries. It’s so reassuring to know that the
beauty industry takes the environment so seriously and is working so hard to create products in an
ethical and sustainable way.
Thank you to everyone who has entered so far, for anyone who would still like to enter their
product, we are accepting entries until mid-July but don’t delay. Enter now and don’t miss the
chance to showcase your fantastic products and share with us all the important work you do to help
the planet with your entry into the Global Green Beauty Awards.
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
Good afternoon from London where spring is trying its best to nudge its way out in front of winter
but not very successfully (so far)!
Today I want to shine a spotlight on some of our previous winners.
SKOGEN had a great year last year, winning two gold awards and one silver for their Jasmine
Collection moisturiser and eye-cream products.
“Skogen” means “forest” in Swedish and I think this name perfectly captures the company’s ethos
which is to use all-natural ingredients and work in an environmentally friendly way while creating
top-quality beauty products. SKOGEN is based in New York and Sweden and has placed itself at the
forefront of high-end beauty product brands.
They are also featured in this month’s British edition of VOGUE magazine see online version here -
2019 UK Global Makeup Awards
BEST NIGHT CREAM GOLD WINNER

Another of our winners was Rose and Caramel. Established in 2010 with the objective of creating
the perfect tanner, Rose and Caramel’s initial breakthrough came with their launch of Nudity
Aerosol. Since then they have gone from strength to strength. A busy duo, Rose and Caramel have
recently been in Los Angeles, mingling with some huge influencers and visiting the LA Pretty Little
BEST BATH / SHOWER PRODUCT GOLD WINNER
ROSE AND CARAMEL
Purity Self Tan Removing Bubble Bath (world first)
BEST BRONZER/ HIGHLIGHTER SILVER WINNER
ROSE AND CARAMEL
Nudity Clean & Clear Cream Based Self Tan Aerosol
FOREO were worthy winners of our Best Beauty Electrical Device Gold Award for their LUNA 3
Despite the fact that six years ago the company consisted of just two employees, Foreo has
experienced amazing growth and success and now employs over 3000 people across the globe. The
company was founded in Sweden and takes great pride in hiring staff from a range of backgrounds,
which complements the company’s innovative approach and unconventional yet ground-breaking
way of pushing forward technological solutions.
BEST BEAUTY ELECTRICAL DEVICE GOLD WINNER
The final company which we want to highlight today is Dr Lipp, producers of 100% (not 99%) natural
products. Founded by the infuriatingly multi-talented and stunningly beautiful Pontine, while she
was working in Milan. Now based in both West London and a sweet Verbier chalet, Pontine searched
high and low for a lip balm which would meet her needs until she stumbled upon nipple balm as the
perfect way to keep her skin in prime condition.
BEST LIPGLOSS GOLD WINNER - Dr. Lipp
Moisturising Colour Tints,
BEST LIP BALM GOLD WINNER - Dr. Lipp
So, please do check out these marvellous companies and their excellent products. We love our job
