There’s nothing quite like a package from a small beauty brand! Not only do you feel good about purchasing from them because you’re helping out a smaller business during these unprecedented times, but you’re also getting the most bang for your buck. One thing about smaller beauty businesses—they’re going to make sure you have the best shopping experience with the time and resources they have. The detail they put into their website, their packaging, and their products is remarkable considering some do it all from their living room—and is truly something you won’t find with major brands. It makes purchasing their products an experience, and it gives you just a little taste of the thought and hard work that goes into creating and sustaining their creative vision. So, without further ado, here are some small beauty brands that have caught my eye recently!
Managed and handmade by style guru @ann.wynn, this brand is the epitome of girl power. Ann makes all her cruelty-free, plant-based products in her home—down to the labels and the cute packaging. Her body butters and scrubs smell INCREDIBLE and will leave your skin with the most amazing glow.
This Cali-made brand has the best 7-free, vegan-friendly nail lacquer out there right now and is featured in all your fave Insta-baddies manicures. Their colors are unique to the brand and range from neon to glitter to pastels. Plus, the packaging?! Gold and luxurious AF.
The Honey Pot Company
This Black-owned brand is known for its Vag-friendly, 100% natural feminine care—from body wash to creams to menstrual products. They’ve also partnered with Happy Period to help donate menstrual hygiene kits to those who are homeless, low income, or living in poverty.
The Things We Do
Founded by Vanessa Lee, this LA-based med-spa not only offers skin rejuvenation services in their two LA offices, but they also offer their own clean-ingredient skincare products LA influencers swear by. They have everything from cleansers to retinols to even their own micro needling infusion stamp (which I’ve been dying to try!).
