After all the frivolities of Christmas, the BeauBronz team are looking forward to 2011 as a year of beauty and bronzing. This endeavour has been partly inspired by a few of the beauty and fundraising events the team attended last November.
The most notable of these, partly thanks to the apocalyptic weather conditions, was the fundraising event for Dare2Magazine www.dare2mag.com at Beaufort House (King’s Road, Chelsea), where the BeauBronz team had a stall set up in the Beauty section, selling a selection of the gorgeous BeauBronz retail range of natural self tanning products and gifts. As with every other seller present, 15% of profits made at the BeauBronz stall were going towards Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Dare2Magazine’s natural ethos is incredibly commendable, and here at BeauBronz we thoroughly support those who also realise that to be eco-friendly, you don’t have to give up the glamour and glitz…you just have to know where to find it. So the sale was dedicated, in part to raising funds and awareness for Breakthrough Breast Cancer (www.toomanywomen.co.uk and www.breakthrough.org.uk), but also towards promoting a natural and organic lifestyle. All the beauty brands and companies present at the event were representing and selling luxurious holistic products containing natural ingredients.
Unfortunately, the ‘adverse weather conditions’ (any business who has to ship out products has probably now grown to hate that phrase) some of the sellers didn’t even receive their products to sell at the event! It also meant that many of the suffering shoppers did not venture out of the usual high street shops to wander upstairs at Beaufort House, so sales were fairly limited. However, this did not dampen the spirits at BeauBronz, and the team made the most of this opportunity to meet and greet lots of other beauty bods in the business.
It would be wrong (and also very difficult!) to choose a single company to write about out of everyone who was present at the sale, so we will just have to whittle down to a couple that stood out for BeauBronz.
The first of these was Davina Peace, who has recently had a lot of positive press (see http://www.dare2mag.com/00,news,15466,266,00.htm for an interview) for her collection of organic beauty products and gifts. Her aim is to create luxurious quality products, which deliver lasting results, by using natural active ingredients. This struck a chord with the BeauBronz team, as it runs parallel to the BeauBronz aim; to fulfil the consumer’s need for tanning products that utilise natural active ingredients, whilst delivering results; a gorgeously bronzed glow. A member of the BeauBronz Team who had been drawn by the gorgeously fresh, natural smell of a Davina Peace candle made an extra effort to support Davina Peace’s socially responsible ethos by purchasing several gift sets in time for Christmas, saving on fuel emissions from delivery vans!
The stall next to us, with its’ 50’s style glamour-girl dressing-room lighbulbs could not be missed. Amanda and her team at In Parlour were giving make-overs, eyelash extensions and manicures at the sale, amongst many other services as part of their travelling beauty parlour. Far from offering novelty or gimmicky beauty services, Amanda and her dedicated team of beauticians provide a variety of treatments such as tinting, waxing, facials, manicures & pedicures (all under the intriguing title of ‘Preening’ ), as well as massage and gel nails. Their luxurious treatments would not be complete without one thing though…sunless tanning! The BeauBronz team are delighted to announce that In Parlour now stock gorgeous BeauBronz tanning products and will also apply the luxurious bronzing lotions for clients if you are the sun-avoidant (or sun-worshipping) type, that usually struggles with sunless self tanning. The whole effect is extremely professional, and would be perfect for parties with the girls, injecting a shot of glamour into an evening.
Hopefully, many more invites will be winging their way to the BeauBronz London head office in 2011 (or at least via Twitter), giving the team opportunity to spread the word about BeauBronz natural sunless tanning!
