Beauty newsflash: an exciting organic new brand hits our shelves…

22 Aug

This month we are very excited about the arrival of organic beauty brand Vapour to the UK.  Fresh from the States, this make-up line is pushing the capabilites of organic cosmetics.  A blend of 70% certified organic ingredients and 30% minerals and vitamins, teamed with responsible production and packaging, makes this range a winner in our books.

Organic make-up can still suffer with the reputation of not living up to its synthetic counterparts.  We think this line will help change that way of thinking.  Smooth textures glide onto the skin, making it look and feel great.  The colour range is superb with a foundation for all skin tones, making natural beauty accessible for all.  The Stratus Soft Focus Skin Perfector is becoming a firm favourite for glowing complexions along with the Plumping Gloss for a gorgeous pout.

Vapour Organic Beauty has already won awards in the US and is building a strong celebrity fan base including Gywneth Paltrow.  We’ve joined the fan club and we hope you will too!  The range is currently exclusive in the UK to Content Beauty/Wellbeing.

Elixir Lip Plumping Gloss £18 for 4.5ml

Festival hair, sorted!

Lou Dartford gives a heads up on how to do dry shampoo this summer

Rain, sunshine, rain, sunshine – this weather pattern can only mean one thing: festival season is upon us.  If a tent is going to be your home for a few days, and the lack of hot water and shampoo is a cause of concern for you and your barnet, we’ve got something to cheer you both up.  The All Nighter Styling Powder (£15.50 for 28gm from Being Content) is a clever dry shampoo with a difference. Rice and tapioca starch absorb excess oil, while a choice of six shades to match your hair colour ensures you won’t look grey early, just clean and fresh for your festival buddies.  No parabens, talc, aluminium or silica, make us like it even more. Not just for muddy fields, this gem is a great bad hair day saviour, the answer to greasy fringes, getting one more day from your blowdry, adding extra volume and texture – or just some extra time in bed!

EggMag’s beauty editor Lou Dartford reveals her favourite seasonal delight to get that skin glowing

With the long summer days and hot summer nights, there is definitely more skin on show this time of year.  But fear not, we’ve found a great product to make sure your skin is gleaming.  Burt’s Bees Radiance Body Lotion is packed full of goodness including royal jelly, with its multitude of nutrients to feed skin, and sunflower oil to moisturise.  Light reflecting mica will add luminosity and a subtle shimmer – perfect for rising hemlines and plunging neck lines!  Just slather on and glow…  (£9.99 for 177ml)

It’s UK Aware next week, and I highly recommend a visit there if you can. In fact, we still have a bunch of free tickets up for grabs on the EggMag website. It promises to be a good show this year, with all sorts of companies present from natural beauty brands to electric scooters. Yours truly is off on a well needed holiday, but there will be a few EggMags around at the event, so make sure you hunt one out if you still haven’t picked up your White Issue.
