Industry news

Cult French beauty brand Bourjois has ceased trading in the UK market due to declining sales.  The brand’s parent company Coty said it was a “difficult decision”, but necessary in order to allow the firm to pay more attention to its most popular brands.  It will be in store and online in the UK for a limited time only – and will still be available in its birthplace, France and in over 50 markets worldwide.  Bourjois was founded in 1863 in Paris by cosmetologist Joseph-Albert Ponsin and is best known for its blushers and bronzers, which are housed in its iconic little round pots, as well as its Healthy Mix Foundation.


From 5th – 24th December 2019, EMULSION, the beauty brand that allows you to tailor your products according to your skin and hair needs, opens its first pop up in House Of Fraser, Oxford Street, London.   Choose an unscented base such as a face wash, shampoo or body oil and select the ‘Add On’, depending on your skin/hair type.  The Add-Ons consist of a range of Essential Oil Blends specially blended to treat different skin/haircare needs and split into day or night offering wonderful holistic benefits too.  All the bases are fragrance-free, so can be used alone or mixed, making them perfect for sensitive skin or those that don’t like fragranced products.  Because you mix the blend in your hand rather than into the base, you can change up your beauty routine when you like.   Specially for Christmas, Emulsion is offering four different bodycare sets at a 20% discount off the price of buying each product individually.   Prices for sets start at £29.00
