An Ode To Pink Packaging
From luxuriously matte perfume bottles with a coral pop and millennial pink face mask tubes to contrasting fuchsias with pastels and rose gold writing, there is something so satisfying and visually appealing about a beautifully packaged and designed beauty product that stand tall and proud on your beauty shelf. For me, pink is in and at this time of the year, it’s a colour to celebrated and worn with pride. I’ve recently been surrounding myself with pink skincare, makeup and day to day aesthetics but today’s post is dedicated to some of my favourite pink beauty products.
I’ve always been obsessed with packaging from the designs, colours and typography. I love how the packaging of a product can make you feel and having beautiful products and aesthetics surrounding me on my bathroom shelfies, bedside table and in my makeup bag, is one of my favourite things. The power of packaging is remarkable and us savvy consumers are often lured into purchasing products for their minimalistic, fun or colourful packaging. Glossier for example, an Instagram phenomena that created the perfect ‘pink’ shade for their branding which is now known as the ‘Glossier Pink’. We buy into packaging for how it makes us feel and how these tubes, pots and bottles of goodness look on our shelves. Now, here’s a bit more on my favourite pinks and why they are cult beauty products…
Origins Original Skin Mask*: Soft pink packaging to match the divine Rose and Willow-herb ingredients. A re-texturising mask that gives skin an instant glow.
Maison Francis Kurkdijan Amyris Hair Mist*: Matte, luxurious and under-stated. Hair mists don’t get more frosted and chic than this beautiful bottle that’s fun and bright through the pops of bright pinky-red tones. A delightfully light, floral yet woody scent from Maison Francis Kurkdijan.
Erborian Pink Perfect Creme*: I love this tube of pink goodness - contrasting hues of a metallic and fuchsia pink that squeezes out an ultra light pink cream that instantly perks up the complexion, adding a soft focus affect all over.
Neal’s Yard Wild Rose Beauty Balm*: A multi-purpose must have for beautiful radiant skin. Rich in Rosehip oil, Geranium, vitamin E and patchouli to drench skin in hydration. Plus, it comes in a the famous Neal’s Yard blue glass jar wrapped in a pretty pink label.
Foreo Luna 2*: Cleansing your skin just got even more fun with this bright pink silicone face tool from Foreo. Whether you use it in the morning to perk up the skin or in the evening to give skin a deep clean, it helps keep skincare fun and enjoyable.
Jurlique Handpicked Rose Hand Cream*: The ultimate duo of pink and rose gold packaged into a beautiful matte, sleek tube of hand-cream.
