On May 9th, the SkinKick Team arrived deep in the heart of (Dallas) Texas to exhibit at the largest exposition of independently owned beauty brands. The Indie Beauty Expo, founded by celebrity esthetician, Jillian Wright, and entrepreneur, Nader Naeymi-Rad, was created to support the growth and success of indie brands and the entrepreneurs behind them. This curated event is THE place to be for those who love all things indie and emerging beauty! In case you missed this special event, we wanted to share with you our top four reasons we loved #IBEDallas2018.
1) We shopped and discovered some awesome indie brands!
Who doesn’t love discovering new brands? From cosmetics, hair-care, personal care, and beauty tools, there was a lot to explore (and sample) at the Indie Beauty Expo. With over 70 beauty brands, it was hard to pick just a few but here are a few that really caught our eye:
American Wave – A six-piece product line, setting the new gold standard in care and styling for textured hair.
My Magic Mud – 100% Natural Premium Activated Charcoal Oral Care to strengthen and whiten your smile.
Hikari Cosmetics – Delivering glamorous, sophisticated makeup to everyone around the U.S. at a reasonable cost.
2) We ran into some friends and made some, too!
If you live in Dallas and don’t follow @dallastrends, you’re seriously missing out! Our new friend Stephanie Casey is a fashion, beauty, food, fitness, pet, travel, & lifestyle blogger who shares all the latest and greatest trends.
We also loved getting to know the founder of Honey Belle, Iris Cherng, and her partner Calvin Hang. It’s always great to meet and share stories with fellow entrepreneurs that share a passion for generating self-confidence and helping their community. #WeAreIndieBeauty
3) We introduced our Naturally SmartTM Skincare products.
Whether someone was shopping for their mother, a nephew, or themselves, everyone wanted to know what makes SkinKick different. We love telling the story of how our SkinKick scientists hand-picked botanicals from the Amazon Rainforest to create the only skincare in the world that combines blemish relief (no benzoyl peroxide) with anti-aging (no retinol) to leave the skin healthy, refreshed and glowing. We are skincare that CARES for your skin, your mind and your life!
