NEWS: A beautiful collaboration to help tackle hygiene poverty in the UK

As part of our ongoing partnership with the brilliant Beauty Banks, who are on a very important mission to tackle hygiene poverty in the UK, we teamed up four of our designers with some of the most influential beauty content creators in the UK to help bring their unique visions to life across a range of covetable limited edition cosmetics bags.

On sale exclusively at Superdrug, each bag is made entirely from recycled plastic and costs £4.99, with 100% of the profits donated to Beauty Banks.

If they sell out, that will be around £50,000 that can be invested in supporting people in communities across the UK who are living in hygiene poverty, making a real difference to people’s lives.

Let's go behind the scenes and introduce you to the influencers and content creators, and their Design Bridge collaborators…
  • Cher Webb, Makeup artist with Ella Smith, Designer
  • Gary Thompson aka Plastic Boy, Influencer with Jake Maguire, Designer
  • Sali Hughes, Journalist, Broadcaster, Author and Co-Founder of Beauty Banks with Yvonne Eng-Hall, Design Director
  • Sam Chapman and Nic Chapman-Haste, Makeup artists and content creators with Rosie Bottomley, Designer

Monique Bissell, Senior Art Director who oversaw the project from our virtual London Studio, summed it up beautifully: 

“Over the years we’ve built a strong creative partnership with Beauty Banks, and this latest collaboration has been a pleasure to work on. Combining our expertise as brand creatives with the unique visions of some of the most influential voices in beauty, together we’ve harnessed the power of design to create a desirable and collectible range of cosmetics bags and supporting social media content to continue raising awareness and prompting people to donate to the Beauty Banks cause. Nobody should have to live in hygiene poverty, and we’re proud to play a small part in tackling this issue alongside Sali, Jo and the rest of the team to make a real difference to people’s lives.”

If you want to get your hands on one of the limited edition designs, or even buy the whole set (it’s for a good cause, after all), head over to Superdrug ASAP before they’re all snapped up.
