Anyone who’s been nominated for an award will tell you how thrilling it is, but actually winning it really takes the biscuit (well, statuette). It’s all the more special when those votes are not only from beauty industry professionals, but from members of the public, too. And we’re thrilled to announce that WE WON!
The Pure Beauty Awards 2015 marked the 14th year as the industry’s premier celebration of established and rising star brands alike. We were in the shortlist for the category of Best New Retail Innovation for our Discovery Boxes. Hurrah!
Some of the top UK beauty retailers were also in attendance, including Harrods, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, House of Fraser, Debenhams, The Perfume Shop, Boots, Superdrug, QVC, feelunique.com and escentual.com. Some big names to be rubbing shoulders with, for sure, and we were practically bursting with pride to be honoured with an award in such company.
At an exclusive black and gold-themed ceremony held in The Ballroom at London’s iconic Savoy Hotel, Welsh TV presenter Gethin Jones hosted the glamorous occasion, and here’s our very own Ines Socarras collecting the award.
Having won a Jasmine Award for the Judges Special Recognition earlier this year for our magazine, The Scented Letter – at this rate we’ll have to purchase a trophy cabinet (or at least make sure we dust our shelves regularly.)
This has been a remarkable year for us – we’re still in our infancy after all – and we would like to say a massive thank you to all of our readers, VIP Subscribers and everyone who has attended our events, read our magazine, come to our workshops and been so incredibly encouraging of everything we are doing. We truly appreciate all your kind words and fantastic feedback – we couldn’t do it without you!
And oh goodness, this is just the start. You should see all the exciting things we have planned for 2016 already… Onwards and upwards, fragrant friends.
