I was fortunate enough to be invited to BeautyMART's press day earlier this week to discover some exciting new products for 2014. For those not familiar BeautyMART was founded by Anna-Marie Solowij, former beauty director of Vogue and Millie Kendall of Ruby & Millie cosmetics fame. All the products you find at BeautyMART have been carefully selected to represent the best of the best. Ultimately, they are there because they genuinely work, look fantastic and have that ‘can’t live without appeal’. As a result of this you will find an amazing and varied selection of luxury and budget-friendly products in their stores.
Along with other fellow beauty writers and bloggers, I had a wonderful introduction to the following products which you will soon see (or already have seen for some lucky people) at BeautyMART this year!
Brownberry New York: Clear Sunless Tanning Spray - Anna-Marie had tanned with this the night before and had a really lovely natural looking golden glow. Definitely one to try for the summer! The formula is paraben-free, oil-free and dermatologist-tested. RRP £30.00
Bronze Buffer Self-Tan Remover Sponges - This fab little sponge is the answer to my prayers! As a ghostly pale lady most of the year I have always longed for a golden glow. Due to some self tanning disasters in the past though I have always steered clear but thanks to the introduction of this beauty, fake tan disasters can be easily corrected using just a little water and this sponge! Anna-Marie demonstrated this on her own arm and the result was amazing so I’ll definitely be getting one in future. RRP £10.00
Embryolisse Rich Balm - I’m already a fan of Embryolisse products and the introduction of this new balm is a great addition to their range. It’s deeply nourishing and packed with olive extract, shea butter and white beeswax and is perfect for repairing, protecting and soothing any areas of dry, irritated skin. RRP £23.
Fairydrops Tokyo Scandal Queen Mascara - I was struck by how cute and colourful this mascara was. It’s a bestseller in Japan (founded by Japanese celebrity Aya Yasuda) and has become a cult favourite due to its smudge free formula and giving lashes a ‘push-up bra’ effect! RRP £18.50
Legology Air-Lite Daily Lift for Legs: I was instantly struck by the wonderfully cool and lifting/lightening effect this had on my skin, as well as the delicious lemon scent - I can imagine it becoming an absolute lifesaver after a long day on my feet or when travelling on long haul flights. Created by Telegraph Beauty Editor Kate Shapland, Kate’s passion for leg care and 25-year beauty writing experience has made this product a real labour of love. Grab one of the limited 500 jars before they go! - RRP £60 for 175ml
Sans (ceuticals) is a New Zealand brand founded by Lucy Marr. The products are plant-derived, ecologically sound and also anti-ageing. I was instantly struck by how wonderful the range looked, felt and smelled! BeautyMART will be stocking the Bio Active Body Exfoliant (£30), pH Perfect Body Wash (£20), Baobab Regenerative Body Cream (£25) and the Activator 7 body + Hair + Face Oil (£35).
Scott Barnes Body Bling - this luxurious moisturiser quickly absorbs into the skin for a sun-kissed and glitzy finish. I would definitely use this on shoots and for nights out as it gave a gorgeous finish and beautiful gilded gold effect to my skin. RRP £28.
DHC Eye Treatment Essence Peptides - this light moisturising serum was specially formulated to fight fine lines and wrinkles in the delicate eye area. I loved the light feel of this and imagine it would work wonders on the eye area - one to try in the future! RRP £33.00.
All products will be available at BeautyMART
I’d like to thank the beauty team at Purple PR and Anna-Marie and Millie from BeautyMART for inviting me along!
