USA Beauty Shopping

When I’m at home in my own city there is nothing I loathe more than spending a full day at the shops looking for beauty products. I LOVE shopping for beauty products but I find it most enjoyable when I’m in a foreign city. I adore shopping in the USA because of the huge selection available, the lower price points and the sales assistants who actually help you (yes, that’s rare in Australia).

I’ve just returned from a business trip in the USA and many of you have been nagging me to share my haul. I’m going to start with my beauty haul because it’s the largest (of course!). In comparison to past trips I would say this haul is small but I stuck to things I actually had on my lust list and/or items I absolutely love. I tried to keep the splurging to a minimum …. but I’m only human.  Continue Reading

Amazon Luxury Beauty Store Page

If luxury beauty is the only thing you dare buy than this news will be great for you. And while we are at it, it will also make those luxury lusters out there very happy. This month Amazon launched their new Luxury Beauty Store, for the first time retailing some of the best luxury brands. Amazon is the world’s largest online retailer but the messy and perceived “discounted” layout of the site has put luxury brands from joining in the action previously. Amazon does have luxury shoppers who come for things like fashion and gadgets, so why not beauty?

“We have luxury shoppers,” said Chance Wales, director of beauty and health & personal care for the e-commerce giant. “What we have been lacking is luxury brands, and we hope this is the first step to marry our customer’s needs with what brands expect in terms of displaying and selling their luxury [products].”

The good news is that Amazon has catered to the needs of the luxury brands. You won’t find a circus of mismatched products in the Luxury Beauty Store.

“This site is much more premium,” said Stephane Colleu, president and chief executive officer of Dr. Brandt Skincare. “A mass brand is not going to be sold within this platform, which is why it’s very attractive.”

While you may think Amazon has always offered premium brands, this is not the case as they are often listed by third-parties in the Amazon Marketplace. The difference with this site is that it is managed by Amazon, all the products are shot in-house and this is a true partnership between the brand and Amazon. It has been indicated that as part of this partnership, Amazon has also shown itself willing to exert more control over where the brands in the Luxury Beauty Store will be available on the site (read: Marketplace). “We are working with brands to make sure we’re presenting their products in an optimal environment,” said Wales.  Continue Reading

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
