We’re girly girls at heart, thus we adore make-up and beauty products! Constantly on the lookout for new and exciting products and brands, we’re suckers for pretty packaging and on-point marketing, but we only really fall in love with products that are worth the hype. Read on to discover the brands that we are currently coveting.
Maybe a little obvious, but we are head over heels in love with Emily Weiss’s beauty brand. Even if the capsule collection of products weren’t so damn addictive, we’d want to buy the whole lot just to place on our bathroom shelf due to their luscious pink packaging. As it stands, they’re actually some of the best skin care products out there, and completely reasonably priced. We don’t know how our faces coped before their Priming Moisturizer and Coconut Balm Dotcom! We love their philosophy that you should cut down the beauty products that you buy to the bare essentials, and invest in the best rather than buying cheap bits and bobs that you go off after just one use. After all, all of the cool girls are opting for Glossier.
Based in Brooklyn, Apotheke create the kind of products that you’d expect to see on the pages of Kinfolk magazine. Their beautifully simple packaging would make your bathroom look Pinterest worthy and provide the perfect fodder for Instagram likes. Their hand-made products seek inspiration from the French, using only natural plant oils, essential oils, botanicals, herbs and nut butters to create organic products that smell great, look great and make your skin feel soft. Accompanying their simple soaps are a range of covetable candles (crafted from soy wax and contained within whiskey glasses) available in unique natural scents such as refreshing citrus basil and rosemary mint. Liquid soaps and body lotions complete the collection. Ideal for those who love organic products, and seek stylish packaging.
We first spotted this cute little lip balm tube on Instagram, and instantly fell in love! We’re huge advocates of natural ingredients in our beauty products, and Kiyoko’s balms are crafted from cacao butter, lanolin and Japanese wax, without a trace of lead or parabens in sight! It’s deliciously moreish, with just the slightest hint of honey to the taste but nurturing and hydrating your lips instantly, so that you can’t help but top up. We’re also absolute suckers for minimalist design, and the packaging looks great on our Instagram flat lays!
You may think it’s a bit strange including a toothpaste brand on our list, but Marvis has to be the hippest toothpaste brand in the world right now! Aside from carefully considered brand placement and the coolest packaging in the dental industry, it’s actually a great product that offers something different to your usual boring dental brands. Revolutionizing caring for your teeth, you get everything you expect from toothpaste (maximum protection, a fresh sensation and a desirable whitening effect), with seven unique flavors, ranging from classic strong mint to the more unusual liqorice or ginger flavors. Zingy!
The truth is in the name: this British brand offers beauty, sleep and skincare products that do what they say on the label. Whilst we love their skincare range and covet their collection of wonderfully scented candles, it’s the Sleep collection that we’re really raving about. Their night oils, pillow sprays, creams and rescue remedies really do work, helping you to get a good night’s sleep when you’re feeling stressed or restless.
