As 2015 draws to a close, the S.H.E Team would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of our customers and therapists for your support throughout 2015. Without each of you we simply wouldn’t be where we are today. You are the reason we exist and the essence of our company, thank you for your commitment and support throughout the year.

Every year our company and the brands we represent continue to prosper with 2015 being no exemption. And what a year it has been, true to form Dermalogica has challenged the status quo with the staggering release of five new cutting edge products. A move towards fusing powerful skin treatment and skin primer technology together saw the release of two new primers: Redness Relief Primer and HydraBlur Primer, an exciting new path for the brand. The noteworthy highlight of these product releases being that of the launch of Overnight Retinol Repair. Boasting the highest concentration of retinol to date, Overnight Retinol Repair is the first-ever retinol treatment to offer a unique customisation option with its inclusion of a buffer cream. In 2016 you can expect to see this continuation of the brands commitment to innovation and advancement in skin health with the inclusion of even more exciting new products to the industry.

2015 has also been the year of events. July saw the New Zealand Beauty Expo held in Auckland where the SHE team showcased all of our brands to the beauty industry. Leanne Spring, Spring Spa Wear founder, joined us to exhibit the 2015 uniform range, while Charlotte Brockett from the International Dermal Institute Australia joined Caroline to Face Map over 50 Expo attendees. Our own Natasha and Angie presented on gaining new clients with online marketing at the business summit seminars, while the rest of the SHE team were busy styling brows at our Billion Dollar Brows stand as well as introducing Clear Start, Dermalogica’s teenage range to the industry.

As if we weren’t already spoilt by visits from Leanne Spring and Charlotte Brocket, Natalie Plain, the founder and Brow Guru behind Billion Dollar Brows (BDB), travelled over from California to enlighten New Zealand beauty media and experts on the latest brow trends and launch four exciting new BDB products (Brow Boost: Primer and Conditioner, Mad About Brows Palette, Glitter Brows and 60 Seconds to Beautiful Brows Kit).

In August a group of 30 kiwis, made up of staff from S.H.E, Skin Centre owners and Skin Therapists travelled to the hot and crazy Las Vegas to attend Dermalogica’s first Congress in 7 years! With 2,500 of the Dermalogica tribe coming together and over 30 fantastic presenters, there was no doubt in our NZ tribe returning with a new found passion, inspiration and excitement for the future of Dermalogica, calling it the best one yet.

In addition to these big events we have rocked some incredible promotions this year with Dermalogica including our Face Map Our Nation campaign which ran from June through to September. We had an outstanding commitment from our skin centres and equally great success in driving consumers through their doors to learn more about skin health and as a result, Face Mapped over 1,000 consumers & held 35 in store Face Mapping events – thank you to all those skin centres who were involved. We also raised $4,493.30 towards FITE through our two FITE promotions this year (FITE bag and FITE clutch). We will share with you how we donate this money in the early New Year.

Last and certainly not least was the announcement of Dermalogica becoming the newest addition to the Unilever Prestige Division. We are very excited about this partnership as our combined strengths will mean even more of the product innovation, education excellence and social impact that you have come to expect from Dermalogica in the coming years. We feel strongly that this partnership will further elevate not only the brand that we love, but the whole profession. In the spirit of Christmas, this year we made a donation to Woman’s Refuge on behalf of all of our customers. Christmas is very a busy time of year in our industry and we wish you all the very best for the remainder of 2015! Please take good care of yourselves and enjoy your summer holidays. We look forward to working together again in 2016!
