GLAMOUR x Avon Distillery | New clean beauty skincare brand

“The world’s first beauty distillery.”

– Gina Ghura, Avon’s Director of Future Innovation

GLAMOUR UK x Avon Distillery Event
Covent Garden London

Wandering around the streets of London on a crisp September afternoon, trying to locate “Carousel”, the magical place where the Glamour x Distillery event was going to take place. When we arrived, we were welcomed by the smiley faces of the representatives, dressed in all white with a fine copper embroidery of the word “distillery” on their attire.

The venue was beautifully decorated with copper pipes leading to laboratory flasks filled with colourful liquids. The theme of the event was clean beauty and the refreshments were in the same tone: carrot and orange juice, ice-cold water with cucumber and lemon.

Avon has officially launched their new game-changing skincare line called Distillery, made with pure and impactful ingredients.

But what is Distillery and why do we need it?avon-distillery.png

The products are eco-conscious, made with none or reduced water, in order to keep the potency intact, and with zero chemicals. Distillery currently has five products, an entire skincare routine, with prices starting at £15.

The CLEAN BREAK cleanser £15

• super-hydrating cleansing balm

What is more, the clean beauty brand’s packaging is made out of recycled glass, the cartons in which the products come in are endorsed by The Forest Stewardship Council and the caps are made out of aluminum, to reduce the impact on the environment.

“It’s about making conscious choices at any decision point,” said Gina Ghura, Avon’s Director of Future Innovation when speaking about the sustainability of the brand.


With minimising fillers in mind, such as water or other ingredients, Distillery will include a cosmetics range, launching at the beginning of 2020.

We saw, felt and tried out the new products. The range will include powder foundation, eyeshadows, mascara and lipsticks, all made with natural ingredients delivered in attractive and ethical packaging.

My name is Irina, born and raised in Bucharest, Romania, currently chasing my dreams in London, United Kingdom. I first smiled on 23 October 1997 and I have done so since. In 2016, I wanted to create a blog to have an outlet for my creativity – a safe space where I could express myself and talk about subjects I am passionate about – beauty, fashion, lifestyle. I find inspiration in the little things and I always write with a cup of coffee next to me.
