2022 Beauty Shortlist Awards

2022 Beauty Shortlist Awards

We are so over the moon, over the top, crying tears of joy, excited and honored to announce that The Potion has earned NINE 2022 Beauty Shortlist Awards!!! (Is this a DREAM???)

Among the awards we have earned the title of Best Waterless Beauty Brand! 

These awards are kind of a big deal in the natural cosmetics industry. Okay, a REALLY big deal. Being recognized by Beauty Shortlist means so much to us because of the rigorous judging process, the qualifications of the judging panel, and the caliber of the brands considered.

Products are tested for five months by health and beauty experts, television personalities, beauty journalists and magazine editors. Hundreds of brands from all over the world have their products tested, and we are more than a little starstruck by the huge, established brands that we are being judged alongside (oh hello fellow winners Olivia Newton John and Elle Macpherson 😎).

As a small, up and coming beauty brand, winning these awards means everything to us. For our Potions to stand out among the world’s most respected clean skincare brands….. we don’t have the words to describe the feeling. We are so grateful.

Without further adieu, announcing the 2022 Beauty Shortlist Award winning Potions…

Magic Balm wins two years in a row! Last year for Best Waterless Product and this year for Best Multipurpose Balm! If you've used Magic Balm, you're already in the know.

The Ritual Facial Massage Wand brings functionality and minimalism together in perfect harmony. We created The Ritual Wand as a compact, travel-friendly facial massage tool that uses less material to produce than most skincare tools currently on the market. The Ritual Wand comes with our unique Facial Massage inspired by the astrological signs. We can use these techniques to draw inspiration from our fellow signs and appreciate the unique positive aspects of our own sign, while treating the skin to lymphatic drainage, acupressure and facial sculpting. 
.
This magic wand is made of a durable and skin-friendly zinc alloy. This may be the last and only facial massage tool you will ever need.

Frolic Skin Polish is a truly effective yet truly gentle facial exfoliating cleanser. If you love a good mix of physical and enzymatic exfoliation and are prone to redness, dry skin or sensitivity, Frolic was made for you!
Ultra finely ground Rice, enzymes from Pineapple and Papaya, and Hibiscus AHA's gently lift and remove dead skin. Aloe, Allantoin, Panthanol and Blue Tansy soothe and calm. Niacinamide, and Wild Blueberry Brighten. 
.
Not to mention the magical colour changing transformation when you blend it with water and the gorgeous gentle floral aroma. It's an experience.

Comfort Face Potion wins for the second year in a row! Created to nourish and soothe the driest, most sensitive skin.
Sylvan always felt frustrated with creams and facial oils touted to be "very rich". They disappeared instantly into her dry skin and she always found herself re-applying multiple times a day and still never feeling satisfied. She created Comfort for her own needs and finally, FINALLY felt relief. 
Featuring Tea Seed, Oat, Pumpkin Seed, Chia and Raspberry Seed Oils paired with hydration and barrier enhancing Ceramides, Cholesterol and Glycerine. The results experienced with Comfort have often been described as "life changing".

Blushing Mineral Body Scrub was created to be the ultimate luxury exfoliant. We are HUGE body scrub fans and wanted our very first Body Scrub to be a shower experience to look forward to. We sourced the highest quality, rare (and okay.. a bit pricey) ingredients available. 
Every time we use Blushing, the shower steam is filled with the most luscious spicy, floral, woodsy aroma. Our skin is so soft and smooth after, there is no need to moisturize.
Featuring Pink Himalayan Salt, Pumpkin Seed Butter, Vitamin E, Damask Rose, Tonka Bean, Pink Peppercorn, Bergamot and Vanilla Bean Oil. It's so sexy, it'll make you blush. ;) 
SHOP HERE
Serenity Body Potion was inspired by our customers with sensitive skin. We received so many requests from Comfort and Freedom devotees to create a Body Potion that would compliment their favourite unscented Face Potions. Every ingredient in Serenity is chosen for its ability to soothe and deeply moisturize the skin. 
If you find yourself always searching for the richest, most moisturizing cream and haven't found your perfect match....look no further!
Featuring Safflower, Shea, Jojoba, Rice Bran and Grapeseed Oils, Ceramides, Glycerine and Beeswax. Serenity is protective, calming and luxurious. Unscented need not be boring!

Thank you so much for supporting us and rooting for us, these awards are just the cherry on top. The work we do every day brewing Potions with love, interacting with our customers, packaging your orders with care and getting to know you all is the real reward. We appreciate every sale, every conversation had online or in person at our markets and every time you spread word of mouth about our small, family business. We can feel your love and it means the world to us. Here's to an even more exciting year ahead!

xoxo

Sylvan & Mama Joy
