Beauty brands: FAQs

  • What is the top beauty brand?

    There are numerous famous beauty brands throughout the world, including Clinique, The Body Shop, L'Occitane, and Estee Lauder. The biggest cosmetics company in the world is, reportedly, L'Oreal. But this doesn't necessarily mean it's the top. The top beauty brand is whatever makes the items that are perfect for you.

  • Who buys the most beauty products?

    Mostly women, although the male market is moving fast. In terms of regions, North Asia (including China) is the world's biggest market for beauty and personal care products, being about one-third of the world's total. North America (including the USA and Canada) is responsible for around 26% of the total.

  • How often should beauty products be replaced?

    Mascara should be replaced every three months, to prevent eye infections. Liquid and cream eye shadows, every six months. Eye pencils and powders, every two years. Primers and foundations, every two years. In general, if you notice any change in appearance, texture, or smell, you should replace the beauty product.

1. Crepe Erase

If you're looking for a brand that takes rejuvenation every bit as seriously as you do, then you should look at Crepe Erase. Youthful skin can be yours if you use their products regularly. 

Their range contains a set of powerful ingredients that go to work straight away on removing signs of aging and restoring your skin's natural radiance.

2. Origins

It's good to know that the ingredients in your beauty products are naturally sourced and as uncomplicated as possible. This is what Origins prides itself on. Setting out in the late 80s with the aim of bringing beauty back to basics, the brand achieves amazing results while eschewing as far as possible artificial ingredients. 

Their GinZing GlowBoosting Gel Moisturizer gives your skin the natural powers of ginseng, coffee, and finely crushed pearls to refresh and perk up your complexion.

3. tarte Shape Concealer w/Sponge

tarte was founded in 1999 by cosmetics enthusiast Maureen Kelly, who set about concocting various products in her New York apartment. Top of Maureen's priorities was to come up with cosmetics that looked amazing, as well as being easy to use and eminently wearable, no matter what your day contained. 

Since then, tarte has become a huge hit, with rapturous reviews for many of its products, such as the tarte Shape Concealer w/Sponge, which simply and effectively takes care of any blemishes and imperfections, leaving your skin looking flawless and immaculate.

This one's for those who like to experiment with new colorful looks for their nails but who happen to be a little younger than most cosmetic wearers. The company was started by an elementary teacher who wanted her young daughters to be able to have fun without exposing themselves to any toxic chemical ingredients. 

Piggy Paint was born, and girls galore have discovered shades as crazy as Drama and Radioactive, both of which you'll find in the Ghouls Wanna Have Dun Nail Polish set.

One for the fellas, from Jack Black. No, the much-loved actor, musician, and voice of Kung Fu Panda hasn't turned his attention to grooming products. This is another Jack Black altogether.

They offer a great range of cleansers made with the male market in mind, such as the excellent Turbo Wash Energizing Cleaner for Hair and Body, which goes to work with the assistance of rosemary, eucalyptus, and juniper berry, and just the one bottle required for the entire physique. 

8. Beekman 1802

It's well-known that the addition of dairy products can greatly improve the quality of some cosmetics, especially when it comes to skincare. Beekman 1802 is a company that firmly believes in the power of dairy, using milk from the goats living happily on the Beekman farm in upstate New York. 

The soap that those goats produce (with a little help from their humans) has a smooth sumptuousness that has to be felt to be believed, and their Pure Goat Milk Foot Balm is just the thing for your tired and cracked hooves. Sorry, feet.

Here's a great example of what they do: the Tweezerman Mini Nail Rescue Kit. In a handy little case, you have all you need to give your nails the once over, with a range of carefully crafted tools to handle any cuticle crisis.
