Brand Spotlight. No B.S. Skincare.
There is certainly no shortage of skincare brands on the market these days. Many of which will leverage popular influencers or celebs to give their brands that dose of social cred to more convincingly sell you on their 'miracle in a bottle' products to recapture your youth! These marketing tactics are intriguing, right!?
These claims are particularly attractive to today's vanity-obsessed culture due in large part to social media platforms that enable people to manufacture, curate and share the best versions of themselves. Livin' yo best life! The problem is, this lifestyle is in high demand, and many beauty brands have caught on and are cashing in on selling you the next latest and greatest creams, masks and serums that cost hundreds of dollars, so you too can be insta-beautiful like Kim K! That's where No B.S. comes in.
No B.S. is firing out shots exposing the rest of the skincare industry to better educate consumers and provide healthier alternatives at a fraction of the price. They have developed and formulated an affordable line of products that actually work. Remember when Dollar Shave Club changed the razor game a few years back, by offering virtually the same quality of razors at a fraction of the cost as the incumbents, under a more convenient business model for consumers? No B.S is taking a similar approach, with an additional added benefit: clean beauty. Their products are formulated with plant-based ingredients, devoid of all the harmful toxins and chemicals that are typically found in the majority of products on the market today.
Clean beauty is the trend, and they walk the walk. All ingredients used in their products are listed on their site, not hidden on the back of the bottle in an absurdly small text. No B.S. doesn't need to hide anything; their products just work.
Simple is better.
We asked No B.S. to answer some questions for us to learn more about their brand and how they have grown so quickly in an overly-crowded marketplace over the last few years.
Brand name: No B.S. Skincare.
Year founded: 2018
What's your brand's vision and mission?
Vision: In an industry full of miracle-in-a-bottle marketing, No B.S. is revolutionizing skincare with clean formulas, real results, and a radically honest beauty culture we can all get behind.
Mission: Change the business of beauty by creating clean yet powerful products backed by real results, not marketing hype.
Why was No B.S. started?
Made By Women Who Know Better
“We started No B.S. because we were tired of toxic beauty industry behaviour: the B.S. marketing claims, the nasty ingredients, the unattainable beauty standards.
Diana spent most of her career working for the giant corporate beauty brands that run the business. But little by little, it got to her. That’s when she found Shelly, a nutritionist who had been whipping up natural beauty products herself.
We joined forces because we knew we could do better. Our mission is simple: change the business of beauty by creating clean yet powerful products backed by real results, not marketing hype. The result is everything clean Skincare should be."
- Briceno and Shelly Dimitrijevic
