Indie Beauty Expo is always a great opportunity to meet brands and experience what makes each of them unique. This year for Indie Beauty Expo 2018 the standard was brought up another notch across the board. I had the pleasure of trying products from over 50 brands and put together a list of 5 brands every skin care junkie should keep their eye on.
Olverum // The Body Oil // The Dry Body Oil
Crave SkinCare is a California based CBD infused skin care line that prides itself on using highly purified form of non-psychoactive CO2 Extracted CBD Isolate from Hemp. Founder Janet struggles with Rosacea and has been able to cure her irritated skin with the Crave formulas. The products are vegan, cruelty free and clean for all skin types. With natural good for you ingredients like Sea Kelp, safflower, watermelon, geranium and of course CBD oil, there is no going wrong here!
Based In North Texas 18.21 is a mens grooming brand that combines a classic male aesthetic with proven powerful ingredients. All too often mens brands can lean more into branding and not into formula but 18.21 knocks out both categories effortlessly. Their newest launch the “Shaving Glide” is a transparent shaving glide that makes the shaving process effortless and precise. Ingredients like JoJoba Oil, Coffee and Aloe help to hydrate and wake up the skin leaving it bright and hydrated after your shave.
