2019 was for us a year marked by many turning points and many adventures that we shared with you throughout it!
After spending the year 2018 working in the shadows, it was in 2019 that our project saw the light of day: that of a innovative robot allowing you to finally make your homemade cosmetics in a healthy, fun, fast, ecological and economical way! A job that has paid off since this year is ending wonderfully, partly thanks to you!
So here is a little retrospective of this year 2019....
A year that started strong...
In January, Nelly and Myriam flew to Las Vegas as part of the THESE, a major exhibition for technological innovation and consumer electronics . BeautyMix was one of the 160 French Tech Start-Ups present at the show to present the robot project! Seducing the public and the press, this event marks the beginning of a great adventure!
The following month marks the launch and posting of the robot, its ingredients and the first recipes on the website ! It was then that our first customers were able to acquire the BeautyMix.
Everything happened very quickly and it was in April 2019 that the BeautyMix was marketed for the first time in stores. These are Boulanger the first to trust us and welcome our little robot to its shelves!
It is also in April that the team is joined by Ludivine, formulator of our recipes!
It is thanks to her that we always offer you more beautiful receipts essential cosmetics for your bathroom!
In May 2019, it is the turn of Nature et Découvertes to open their doors to us.
The month of May also illustrated our participation in the Vivatech Paris, the essential meeting place for Starts-Ups. During this, we were able to present our innovative concept, learn about other surrounding projects and collect potential partnerships!
June 2019, we are on television on M6 in the program "My invention is worth gold" where the jury congratulated us on our beautiful project. We were proud and grateful to appear among other great inventions and to make ourselves even more known to you!
In July, we moved to the premises of Station F , a huge, friendly Starts-Ups campus where nice encounters take place every day. Within the Beauty Tech Atelier de l'Oréal accelerator, we thrive on working with the whole little BeautyMix team!
It is also the beginning of partnerships with our partner workshops throughout France. These make you discover the BeautyMix in a friendly setting. Many thanks to them!
You can also find the list of all our workshops at the bottom of the home page of our site!
In September , Sophie joins the team. We are now five in this great adventure!
We have formulated seven shades of lipsticks in pink, orange and red tones!
And that ends wonderfully well!
To end the month of November , we participated in the Salon Creations & Know-How. This show was an opportunity for us to meet thousands of Do It Yourself and homemade cosmetics enthusiasts! Many exchanges, demonstrations and smiles were there. This show was a real success for us because at the end of it, our stand was empty! So thank you again for everything :)
The month of December was by far the busiest for us: we appeared on M6 on the program "66 minutes" as part of the Salon Créations & Savoir-Faire.
We opened our ephemeral shop in Chartres , a unique experience during which we were able to exhibit our robot in our own shop! A blog post deals with this subject.
Finally, the holiday season is in full swing because you robbed us!
All of our products on our website have been out of stock!
So we especially wanted to thank you for this year of madness !
It is thanks to you that little by little we have the chance to discover home cosmetics, to share it more and more and to see that a new mode of consumption appeals and may one day be able to convince the majority of people !
We wish you happy holidays!
