PROFESSIONAL BEAUTY SPRING TRENDS
Beauty Editor Giovanna Zac visited one of the best beauty exhibitions in London and revealed what she discovered among the trends for this spring season
Professional Beauty is one of the most interactive beauty events of the year, attracting thousands of visitors and hundreds of beauty exhibitors in the world of cosmetics, skin care and nails. Held at Excel London this year, Professional Beauty ran for two days on the 25th and 26th February and was one of the most interesting events so far in the world of beauty.
Skin care brands such as Aromaworks, Crystal Clear, Dermalogica and Decleor were present, while make-up brands included Artdeco, Misslyn and Make Up For Ever and nail brands consisted of Nail Harmony, OPI and Nails Company. The exhibition also had the best in spas, tanning, body, organic and botanical treatments, hair products and a great variety of masterclasses and industry talks led by professional, experienced educators and key speakers.
It is impossible to mention all of the brands and their wonderful products, especially after two days of trying, smelling, wearing and experimenting with them. There were lots of new cosmetic ideas and interesting concepts that caught my attention and these are the brands that inspired me this spring.
EYESENTIAL VIALS & SACHETS
Celebrating 25 years since they launched in 1996, this is an amazing non-surgical wrinkle and dark-eye circle eraser that works instantly with a real long lasting power of up to 10 hours. My personal definition of this product is that “Eyesential Lotion is and works like crazy”. I met Mary Teague, founder of Eyesential in the Professional Beauty press lounge where she kindly demonstrated a product of the brand on herself.
Mary explained that this product is not a treatment, but a make-up solution for wrinkles or dark circles. It is not dangerous to the skin as it does not have active ingredients; therefore it does not treat or repair the skin from signs of ageing. When the lotion is applied on absolutely clean skin free from moisturiser or cleanser, the lotion leave a protective film-like covering under the eye area and stays there for approximately 10 hours.
Eyesential took years off my eyes instantly, and it is certainly one of those best kept secrets. It is available in individual, single use sachets or multi-use vials.
