Happy Birthday Glamore Cosmetics
It has been 5 years since we started Glamore Cosmetics and it has indeed been a rollercoaster ride. I could write a very long post on the past 5 years but this post isn’t about that.
This post is about being here after 5 years (surviving) – and being grateful to each of you who has supported us. Whether you have bought from us online, Takealot, come to our events or even supported us on social media – THANK YOU FOR FIVE YEARS. And some of you have bought something and continued to post for us, others have stayed in touch and become good friends. These big or small gestures is what we value so much.
Without your support we really would not be here. Your loyalty to us as a brand is like family or friendship – it has meant so much. Each comment/ like/ share or purchase keeps us going. When we started out we set the bar – cruelty free, hypoallergenic and in some cases vegan friendly makeup and skincare. And we have not waivered, simply because we know that our products are good for sensitive skin and all skin types and tones.
What you might not know is that we also endeavored to support all skin tones – this was so important that we include ALL the people in South Africa. At one stage we were unable to do it because our supplier had problems producing makeup for darker skins. Their products were unstable and were taken off the market. It took 3 months of intensive research and negotiation to find a new brand – a brand that would be able to offer products for all our customers. A brand that was cruelty free, hypoallergenic and vegan friendly so still maintaining our original ethos.
As you know I am a Scientist by profession so it matters – ingredients/ how our products are made is important to me. The fact that our brands have ISO numbers and attain to International standards is of crucial importance – like the Gold Standard in Cosmetics. Not only that but they give me confidence in knowing the ingredients and I do know each and every one – so when someone says ‘Gael we are halaal are there beetle extracts in your lipsticks” I can confidently answer. I am confident that our products are made in such a way that they are not harmful to anyone.
To read more about how important it is to use products that are cruelty free – here is my latest blog post. All our current brands are made in the EU. I am seriously enjoying the new products from Pierre Rene and Miyo Makeup as they are Vegan Friendly. Delia Products; our latest brand also has loads of vegan friendly products – I have to admit that the bath bombs are my favorite BUT in saying this I do love their Vitamin C serum!!!
See – how I went on a tangent and digressed – this is our birthday month and I want to thank a really special person. My daughter Emma – without you and your constant support, love and friendship I would not have survived the last 5 years. You are my inspiration. When things are tough we swear and rant and rave and we find a way – because there is ALWAYS a way. Thank you for being you! I don’t want to say anymore just know that you are my heart beat every single day. #tears
