One of the biggest beauty shows in the UK, Professional Beauty heads North to Manchester every year to host some of the best skincare and grooming brands under one roof. This year, after the success of my “Live from Olympia Beauty” post, I decided to head up North myself and check out the new launches and hot exciting products on offer. I’ve got my eyes open for all things spa and I’m on the look out for men’s grooming products. It’s busy, it’s buzzing and here’s what I found:
Kissed by Mii
A new sunless tanning range that launched this year has a salon and spa treatment – and look how the spray tan solution comes – in a wine box! It’s such a brilliant idea, stops the product from oxidising and really is one of the most innovative ideas I’ve seen today.
Obey Your Body
Obey Your Body is something I’ve never seen before, a metallic looking skin mask that you apply, leave for 10 minutes and then remove with a tissue covered magnet. It leaves behind a super hydrating serum. The mask contains magnesium and zinc. It’s called the Obey Your Body Biomagnetic Facial Mask. Quite amazing really.
Spa Ritual is an eco-friendly spa brand that is launching its new Body Serum. It contains sunflower shoots which stimulate collagen and has the most amazing smell thanks to orange and lemon peel essential oils and bergamot.
Aroma Works London
Launched in 2009, this brand has escaped my attention until now. Aromatherapy essential oils with a line of candles, reed diffusers, oil blends and bath and body oils. You will find the line in Cliveden and Stoke Park and there are more new products to come focussing on skincare. So watch this space.
Elemis is previewing it’s Christmas gift collection at Pro Beauty North called the Treasures Collection. With gift ideas ranging from £25, pictured here is the Beauty Treasures set which retails at £135. I will be featuring the men’s collections in a review later.
These aren’t new as such, but I’ve never had the chance to touch one. They are used like hot stones to massage the body. A mix of herbs and activator are placed into the shells so they become self heating. Such a cool idea for a massage – I can’t wait to try it out in a spa.
