Video: Five of the Best – New Beauty Brands
Wed, 17 October 2012 9:10AM
I’ve noticed an entire wave of fun, new beauty brands floating across my desk of late. Some have just hit our shores while others have just been bobbing away under the current, only surfacing now thanks to a PR push or me and my beady, beauty eyes spotting them in the distance. So, Primpers, today’s Five of the Best takes you through the best emerging beauty brands and their signature products that are sure to mask a splash.
But before we get started, I should also alert you to something just as exciting…I have a new ‘do courtesy of the delightful Barney Martin at Barney Martin Hairdressing. It’s short and cropped and inspired by Hanneli Mustaparta in this pic here. Weee!
Anyway, back to the video. Here it is…
And here are the products and brands…
1. Sanctuary Spa Pore Refining Toner, $20, Priceline
The iconic Sanctuary Spa in Covent Garden (which has been there since 1977) is an institution for beauty geeks the world over. Now, the spa range is available in Australia, and guess what? They’re flipping affordable. Sold, to the lady in black.
2. bhave leave-in creme, $44.95, 1300 40 20 64
Primpers with frizzy hair, listen up! bhave is a clever Aussie-owned professional hair brand that incorporates a keratin-treatment free from formaldehyde, parabens and sulphates with a range of seriously great take home products to match. I’m off to get my in-salon treatment in a few weeks, but for now my hair is loving the Leave-in Creme to keep summer humidity out of my way.
3. Chidoriya Rice Bran Wash, $35.50, Green Organics
My editor at Good Health discovered this Japanese beauty brand when they sent her a range of products. Now, I’m hooked too. All products are natural and organic, and each have their own beautiful Japanese flare, be it in the ingredient line-up, packaging or ritualistic approach to application. The Rice Bran Wash is sublime at smoothing and brightening your complexion.
4. HydroPeptide Cleanse Anti-Wrinkle Exfoliating Cleanser, $65, 1800 808 993
This wonderful new beauty brand is ideal for anyone with ageing concerns. Be it prevention or elimination, every product in the range harnesses the skin benefits of up to 21 different peptides, working to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase radiance and lock in moisture. This cleanser is a winner if you want to do all three things at once.
5. Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum, $175, Green Organics
Another all-natural skincare brand, Tata Harper is fresh out of Vermont and has won awards in Allure and beyond. The Rejuvenating Serum is one of its signature products, and I can understand why, it makes my skin feel reinvigorated, healthy and packed with goodness. Not only is the anti-ageing side of things taken care of, but the natural scent of the product smells incredible as well.
