The beauty industry has been one of the fastest growing sectors of our generation; consumers are on a journey of exploration with a sea of products to test and try out. Young, independent brands are constantly emerging and gaining a fast following with super Instagrammable products. Whilst it's great to see such an array of beauty brands emerging, the industry can be somewhat overwhelming if you don't know your acids from your retinoids and your BHA's from your AHA's, plus, skincare isn't a one-size-fits-all model, so trial and error is very important. The boom in beauty influencers and bloggers has been essential in helping consumers find the right products for them and seeing them tried and tested by ordinary people. Here, we have listed our 5 favourite beauty buffs who can help you get clued up on the world of beauty.
