Showcasing the latest developments in body care, makeup, and skincare, these brands centre on being smart and sexy. From a clear and effective ingredient list to Instagram-worthy packaging, here are the fresh names to look out for on your next shopping session.
BOD (Body On Demand)
Focusing on achieving and reinforcing body confidence, BOD developed their cruelty-free “Anti-Spanx” regimen underscored by research on the causes of bloatedness. Their 20-Minute Bath Salts help your body detox and sweat out the toxins. Followed it with their Hydrating Glitter Body Scrub that makes use of sugar and biodegradable glitter to lift away dead skin cells. Meanwhile, their Body Sorbet smooths and tightens skin, leaving behind a lovely iridescent shimmer, while their multi-tasking vegan tanners deliver glowing and sculpting benefits.
Fun packaging is the strength of this Barcelona brand with designs mirroring their products’ key ingredients. Noteworthy mentions from Fancy Handy are the banana-shaped Banana Hand Cream from their Mini Fruits range and Clay Face Mask in an ice cream-like tub. Ease of use is also a priority with the brand with travel-friendly innovations like the Face Moisturising Stick which comes in Refreshing and Anti-Pollution variants.
Since 2005, this British brand has been advocating for clean, responsible beauty. Bringing the best in natural makeup, Lily Lolo’s range of mineral cosmetics are cruelty-free and made without parabens, fragrances, synthetic fillers or dyes. Their BB Cream boasts of a rare silicone-free formula, their Mineral Foundation SPF 15 features a stunning four-ingredient list, while their Mineral Eyeshadow and Blush are made of highly pigmented, skin-friendly mineral ingredients.
