This is definitely an event the Nigerian beauty industry has been missing, a world-standard International Trade Show. Beauty West Africa is here to set the standard for beauty exhibitions, not just in Nigeria, but Africa as a whole and we are 100% here for it! They are bringing International Manufacturers, Wholesalers & Suppliers right to your door step.

So what exactly is Beauty West Africa, you ask? Keep reading….



Beauty West Africa (BWA) offers an exclusive once-a-year opportunity for the local beauty sector to engage with international companies, offering such a broad range of products from cosmetics to perfumes, hair to personal care. This exhibition is a Business-To-Business (B2B) trade show event. If you are a beauty business owner, current or aspiring, this is the event for you. Instead of emailing prospective international manufacturers/suppliers back and forth, or catching flights to China, India, Paris or wherever, BWA is here to save you time and money.




Also, on the flip side, if you’re local manufacturer looking to export your goods internationally, BWA is the perfect place to meet possible business partners to facilitate that. Even if you were looking to expand your local distribution chains, BWA has established partnerships with some of the largest importer groups and retail chains in the country; these bodies are responsible for importing and distributing beauty and personal care products across Nigeria:

  • Balogun Business Association
  • Onitsha Main Market Traders Union
  • Cosmetics Dealers Association

BWA will be hosting them onsite for all Exhibitors to meet.

So, the WorldCup starts today and a lot of us ladies are just not into football. What better time for #TGiFreeManicures to be BACK! The boys can have their football, we want to treat the ladies this season!


For this series we have joined forces with Foodpro to make it even bigger and better. Is it bad that we are OBSESSED with their brand of cashew nuts, literally the crunchiest, and the fact that they are #ProudlyNigerian… you know we are always team #BuyNigerian.

We partnered with Foodpro to take #TGiFreeManicures to the next level! We want a lot more of our readers and followers to get in on the action, so we are not restricting the treatments to a particular day of the week, and we are bringing our Abuja readers in on the action. More on that as we roll out the series.


Every single Friday in June, starting from tomorrow the 15th June 2018, we will run giveaways on Instagram (@BeautyInLagos), 5 winners will be chosen, each winner gets to share their prize with a friend. What’s the prize? A FREE full Manicure & Pedicure session, for 2, at a relaxing Nail Salon.


The plan is for 15 BiL Followers and their friends to get pampered this football season!

So make sure you are following BeautyInLagos on Instagram and get ready to win a Pamper day for two this football season

Terms & Conditions
Entrants must be resident in Lagos or Abuja (specificity will be provided per giveaway)
Entrants Instagram accounts cannot be private
Entrants must be willing to have their pictures taken during pamper experience (images will only be used on Instagram)
If selected, Entrants will be required to share their experience on their page using the hashtag #TGiFreeManicures

Offer valid for a period of 10days after winners are announced.

This Christmas, the plan is to offer BeautyInLagos subscribers & followers, the BEST beauty deals possible. Quite a number of people were disappointed at how quickly our last deal sold out. BiL collaborated with Laserderm Clinics to offer 70% of Microdermabrasion & Stem Cell combo facials. This took the price from N50,000 to just N15,000. This deal sold out in under 24hours. My apologies once again to anyone who missed out, I did promise that there will be more where that came from, and I am staying true to my word.


From next week Wednesday, 13th of December, we will randomly run a series of beauty deals up until the 24th of December. I say ‘randomly’ because, the discounts will be shared on certain unspecified dates within that period. Subscribers to BeautyClubNG will be the first to get an opportunity to purchase a discount voucher. We only managed to get a limited number of vouchers per deal, so it’s really going to be down to FASTEST FINGERS FIRST.

Vouchers will be made available on the official BeautyClubNG site. There is a link to the page right here on the blog, just click on ‘Deals and Offers’ right here at the top, as shown in the image above. Everyone is free to purchase a voucher but the link will go out to BeautyClubNG subscribers first!

Make sure you are subscribed to the BeautyClubNG so you don’t miss a deal:

I thought I’d seen it all when it came to beauty spaces in Lagos, but it’s becoming quite apparent that I clearly haven’t. Say hello to ‘Beauty Box’ a fully-serviced Beauty salon complete with private Lash-Tech room and Makeup studio, and also our venue for the Beauty Party this Sunday, 26th! Everyone attending is in for a treat, let me run you through what you can expect.





This is just a little sneak peek of our party venue, Beauty Box, and it’s located at No. 2 Alexander Road, Ikoyi. There’s is ample parking space on the property, so you will have absolutely no problem getting a spot. Just prepare to come in for an enjoyable and relaxing experience.


As always we have put together a specially discounted service menu for the day.

I really enjoy how BlackUp Paris always introduces their new products to Beauty Influencers and Stakeholders by organizing a Masterclass and having a professional demonstrate how to use these products. I think it’s a fantastic idea because we can see firsthand how these products perform and also learn how best to use said products. Their last product activation session was last year, with David Coranson-Beaudu, you can read all about it here. This time they had the gorgeous celebrity Makeup Artist Joyce Jacob and also took things up a notch by having us also enjoy a 4-course dinner during the session. We got to see her use some new products from BlackUp and also hear firsthand feedback from her as she used them on her model. I have got pictures and prices of some of BlackUp’s new products which I will share in another post, so look out for that (update: Read post here). For now enjoy these pictures from my time spent with BlackUp.














BlackUp products are available for purchase from select Montaigne Place stores nationwide. You can find contact details for all Montaigne Place in these posts here

I am also giving away some of these newly released products to a lucky BiL Youtube Subscriber, so if you’d like to enter the giveaway read this post here
