What was inside the IMAGE Beauty Festival 2019 gift bags worth €100

by Rosie McMeel
17th Jun 2019

They came, they saw, they conquered and they brought home a whopping great gift bag.

There was a lot to love about the IMAGE Beauty Festival 2019. From star speakers to complimentary treatments, attendees were richly spoiled, but the gift bags may go down in event history as being the best in the business. The Oscars have nothing on us! We owe enormous thanks to all the sponsors and generous contributors who helped to make these so impressive.

With the contents valued at over €100, every attendee left laden down with goodies containing a selection of the following:

CYO Cosmetics eyeshadow


Catrice nail polish

A sample of CeraVe moisturising lotion.

Mavala nail polish

Fulfil Vitamin & Protein Bar


Haribo Frutilicious jellies.

VitHit Dragonfruit and Yuzu drink.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Mask





Aveeno Daily Moisturising Lotion


Plush Brushes



Trilogy Cream Cleanser

Viviscal Densifying Shampoo or Conditioner.

L’Occitane Hand Cream

Alex Steinherr for Primark Pollution Solution City Mask

My Shining Armour Wellness Tracker



Ziaja Hand & Nail Cream

Joico Brightening Masque

Biofresh Cleansing Milk.


Plus: King Hair & Beauty • Ribena Frusion • Lancôme • The Buff Day Spa • Nunaïa • Dermalogica • Dr Hauschka
