12 Best Finds From The Indie Beauty Expo
“The biggest highlight for me when it comes to IBE and BeautyX is always getting a chance to meet these beauty entrepreneurs face to face. They are the driving force behind this industry and every decision we make at IBMG aims to support them. It is so important to connect with brand founders in person- you get so much more out of that than you do by looking at a website or a brand deck. It was also such a treat to listen to Carol Hamilton’s conversation with our Claire McCormack during BeautyX– Carol is a legend and we were thrilled to welcome her back to BeautyX.” – Jillian Wright, Co-Founder of IBE
