A Tour around Daisy Beauty Expo 2018

Yesterday, Daisy Beauty Expo happened which is a Beauty Exhibition in which the Swedish Beauty Community is invited to meet up with over 50 companies.

I was so honored to be able to take part again this year and there were many… many brands & faces that I was so happy to meet! Unfortunately my camera ran out of battery half way through the day but at least my phone has decent quality photos! Here is a look into what I saw at the Expo this year.

/Daisy Beauty Expo gick av stapeln och det var en fantastisk event där influensers och företag kan träffas och prata skönhet och nyheter och det är bästa tillfälle att bara hänga och lära känna branschen. Tyvärr så batteriet i kameran tog slut men tur min telefon ger ändå helt ok kvalité. Gärna lämna ett kommentar om det finns någonting ni vill se eller veta mer om!

Let me know in the comments if you want me to talk more about a specific product or brand!

L’ORÉAL PARIS

Absolutely beautiful and they outdid themselves again this year with a Paris themed room and each product group had its own side of the room! They even thad 3 Vänner ice cream served and gorgeous sitting where you do feel like you are on a Parisienne Street.

GLOSSGODS

Ah. Marielle! I loved that they booked us in for a Do it Yourself Serum! Mine was very similar to their latest Fairy Drops Serum!

DEPEND COSMETIC

YES YES YES TO ALL THINGS RETRO! Depend decorated with Glitter Balloons, and they were dressed to KILL! They were inspired by their latest release Studio 54 which unfortunately got lost on the way home to me so I haven’t got a hold of the polishes yet… But they look amazing.

I got my nails did in their Summer collection to be released later in the year.. And I got some Hanna Lashes put on too!

Some Honorable Mentions from Apotek och Egenvård 2017

Though I mainly attended the Hud & Kosmetik Mässa, I also did take a round at the other Exhibition: Apotek & Egenvård and there were some awesome finds that I must share with you!
/Jag egentligen var på Hud & Kosmetik mässan men jag ändå tog en runda i Apotek & Egenvård och hittade massa fint att dela med er!

SmellWell

I LOVE SmellWell! Why oh why have I not seen this brand before!? I saw these bright colored bags that reminded me of those mini beanbags we used for dodgeball in elementary!
/Jag älskar SmellWell! VARFÖR har jag inte sett den tidigare? Jag såg färgade påsar som påminde mig om beanbags vi använt i skolan när jag var liten!

Anyway, I met co-founder Ammi who spoke about her husband from Canada that tried to find something to help with the stench of football shoes. Since he couldnt find anything that worked, he decided on creating his own product…aka. SmellWell. They come in a variety of colors and soon in a longer, larger version for heavier shoes! I CANNOT WAIT!
/Hur som helst träffade jag co-founder Ammi som pratade om sin man från Kanada som försökte hitta något för att hjälpa till med stanken av fotbollskor. Eftersom han kunde inte hitta något som fungerade bestämde han sig för att skapa sitt egen produkt … aka. SmellWell. De kommer i olika färger och snart i en längre, större version för tyngre skor! JAG LÄNGTAR!

The SkinAgent

My second absolute FAVORITE find was The SkinAgent. The brilliant founders Linda and Anna made sure that those uncomfortable rubs will not turn into a long term pain! The women where so kind and it was a pleasure to talk to them at their stand.
/Min andra absoluta FAVORITE fynd var The SkinAgent. De strålande grundarna Linda och Anna såg till att de obehagliga skav kommer inte bli en långvarig smärta! Kvinnorna var så snälla och det var ett nöje att prata med dem i deras monter.

They have 3 sticks: Move, Sport & BH (Bra in swedish) and there will be one coming out soon for feet…I must have one of each!
/De har 3 typer: Move, Sport & BH. Det kommer också ut en för fötter. Jag måste ha alla!

FootNer

I think FootNer gave me the perfect Birthday present… A CoolActive Massager for my sore feet! Youve probably heard of FootNer from their exfoliating socks but when I saw this little contraption…. I had to talk and see what it was all about. I stand all day at work and I work out 2-3 times a week now so my feet are basically in a state of pain constantly. What Footner coolActive Massager does is that it is a massage ball that cools and even calms the feet! I cannot wait to give this a try.
/Jag tror FootNer gav mig den perfekta födelsedagspresenten … En CoolActive Massager för mina ömma fötter! Du har nog hört talas om FootNer från deras exfoliating strumpor, men när jag såg den här lilla grejs …. Jag var tvungen att prata med de och se vad det handlade om. Jag står hela dagen på jobbet och jag tränar 2-3 gånger i veckan nu så mina fötter är i princip i en tillstånd av smärta konstant. Vad Footner CoolActive Massager gör är att det är en massageboll som kyler och till och med lugnar fötterna! Jag kommer säkert älska produkten!

IDUN Minerals

IDUN was found at the Apotek area since they have partnered up with Apoteket. It was super cool to see their latest skincare line with the simple black and white and even numbered bottles to make it super easy to follow and use.
/IDUN kunde hittas på Apotekområdet då de samarbetar med Apoteket. Det var super coolt att se deras senaste hudvårdsserie med de enkla svarta och vita flaskor och numrerade flaskorna för att göra det super lätt att följa och använda.

Pedicare

I love Pedicare products and have written about the brand previously so I wanted to see what was new. They will soon release a mousse that I am excited to try out. It comes in a 100ml mini bottle and comes out as a foam. When you apply it, it goes super quickly into the skin. I like!
/Jag älskar Pedicare produkter och har skrivit om varumärket tidigare så jag ville se vad som var nytt. De kommer snart att släppa en mousse som jag vill jätte gärna testa. Den kommer i en 100 ml mini flaska och kommer ut som ett skum. När du applicerar det går det snabbt i huden. Jag gillar!

Ormsalva

Ormsalva also have released two new sticks – A warming and a cooling stick. Perfect for me since I have been putting in a number of hours at the gym lately!
/Ormsalva har också släppt två nya pinnar – En uppvärmning och en kylning stick. Perfekt för mig då jag har lagt på ett antal timmar på gymmet på sistone!

OKeefes

The men at Okeefes were very to the point which I liked. The OKeefes is a brand originating from California that will be releasing a hand and foot cream that is proven to heal quickly and effectively. The brand focuses on those who work rigorous, physical work – or just for those who are in dire need of moisture and protection! *update* I noticed that Apotea already sells the Helping Hands if you are interested in buying yourself a jar!
/Männen på Okeefes var verkligen to the point som jag gillade. OKeefes är ett varumärke som härstammar från Kalifornien och som kommer att släppa en hand- och fotkräm som har visat sig läka snabbt och effektivt. Märket fokuserar på dem som arbetar med rigoröst, fysiskt arbete – eller bara för dem som har ett brådskande behov av fukt och skydd! * uppdatering * Jag hittade Apotea som redan säljer Helping Hands om du är intresserad av att köpa en burk!

The Hair & Body Company

I said hi to a supplier we have at Sephora, The Hair & Body Company who has brands such as St. Tropez and Bulldog.

Nordströms – Mavala

And lastly, I also found Nordströms who have brands such as China Glaze, Ardell and Mavala…Mavala will be releasing 2 new collections which I would hopefully get more information about soon! They look super exciting.
/Och sist så hittade jag Nordströms som har varumärken som China Glaze, Ardell och Mavala … Mavala kommer att släppa 2 nya kollektioner som jag förhoppningsvis kommer få mer information om snart! De ser super spännande ut.

Which brands surprised you if you attended the exhibition this year? What do you think of my finds?
/Om du var på mässan i år, vilka märken överraskade dig? Vad tycker du om mina fynd?

Crush in Fashion with Grazette of Sweden

Today I had the opportunity to take a dive into the latest from Grazette of Sweden. Their Crush series have been a huge hit with me and I have loved the new packaging, the new formulations and I cannot travel without my Wonder Mask…which I unfortunately emptied yesterday evening!

Grazette crush in fashion

Crush in Fashion is the latest from Grazette, a partnership between Grazette and Swedish Fashion Council. This limited edition series includes a few of my favorite products and some new ones that I am dying to try out! I regret to write that this collection is limited edition and is exclusively found in salons.

Grazette crush in fashion

The collection is inspired by the runway and tangerine and coral pink shades that create a tropical omnisex scent that is found in all the new products. You can find mandarin and tangerine scents balanced together with mysk. It still has that Crush sweetness but a bit more summery in my opinion!

In this collection you will find Shampoo, Conditioner, Mask, Fluid, Stylist, Hairspray & Beach Waves. A collection that consists of all your basic hair needs.

Grazette crush in fashionAs mentioned my favorite mask is the Wonder Mask (169kr) as it does everything in 60 seconds! It leave my hair soft but also moisturized which is much needed in my very colored hair! Just as this mask, the Crush in Fashion Mask does the same as it has two active ingredients: Bio-intelligent keratin which repairs damaged hair and Grape seed Complex which keeps color and products from UV as it is a natural mix of antioxidants.

Have you tried any products from Grazette of Sweden?

PS: Did you know that Grazette has started the first ever HÅRPODDEN! go check it out! The first episode is about colored hair ;)
