Rose Gold Fever!

Without a doubt, Rose Gold is having a fashion moment and the trend is set to continue with the launch of two beautiful new Tangle Teezer Compact Styler designs!

 

Tangle Teezer is the world’s best selling detangling hairbrush, with now over 40 million brushes sold worldwide, and stockists including top high street, tax free and inflight retailers.

 

The innovative beauty tool works like no other to detangle hair painlessly and easily. The secret lies in the teeth, which flex through hair to gently loosen tangles with no tugging or pulling, leaving hair super shiny and smooth.

 

The luxurious Rose Gold/Ivory design has been immediately listed for the festive season by key UK airlines including easyJet and Thomas Cook and will also launch in Dufry UK stores along with the Rose Gold/Black design in the coming months.

 

These new fashion-led concepts are the most successful Tangle Teezer Compact Stylers ever launched in store and online, with Rose Gold/Ivory reaching the coveted “most liked” spot on Instagram and other social media platforms. The story continues with more exciting collaborations in 2019 which will be presented by TRS at the TFWA event in Cannes.

 

 

In addition, Travel Retail Solutions will also be showcasing the award winning and highly acclaimed multipurpose balm brand, Dr.PAWPAW alongside the fastest growing product line in the TRS portfolio, Sonic Chic Electric Travel Toothbrushes.

 

Sonic Chic offers two price levels with two ranges:

 

– URBAN: a compact, battery powered toothbrush, which comes ready to use along with a spare replacement brush head. With a hygienic cap (no more finding your toothbrush against the sole of your shoe in your suitcase!) and brushing speed of 22,000 strokes per minute, this is the perfect travelling companion! Six designs to choose from.

 

– DELUXE: this sleek sonic powered toothbrush is dual speed, has a quadrant timer and is rechargeable via a USB cable (included). With a speed of up to 32,000 strokes per minute, this toothbrush cleans deeper than a regular toothbrush head by penetrating the hard-to-reach areas. Metallic Silver, Ruby Red and Rose Gold colours available.

 

 

TRS strives to provide the Travel Retail industry with innovative concepts, new ideas and a refreshing approach to sales. This ethos continues to strengthen thanks to new and existing customers and the TRS team’s dedication to Travel Retail needs.

TRS appointed to represent new brands in Travel Retail

 

No hibernation during the winter months for the TRS team! We have been busy searching out the best brands to present to our customers ready for Spring/Summer 2017.

 

We are very proud to introduce two fantastic new cosmetic brands, The Konjac Sponge Company and Dr.PAWPAW!

 

The Konjac Sponge Company offers an award winning range of amazing facial and body sponges, which are the ultimate in natural, effective skincare.
Made in Korea from pure vegetable fibres, the Konjac sponges deeply cleanse exfoliate and detoxify, leaving skin clean, glowing and silky smooth.

 

All Konjac Sponges are 100% natural and made with the purest Konjac plant and mineral rich extracts. They are eco-friendly and carry the Leaping Bunny and Vegan Society symbols as signs of the brand’s commitment to producing natural, cruelty free skincare. Products from The Konjac Sponge Company are now sold in over 60 countries and have received 23 awards from the beauty industry.

 

When you first get your hands on a Konjac sponge it is hard as a rock, but submerge in water for a few minutes and it will transform into an extremely soft sponge with amazing exfoliation capabilities. The trick is to polish the skin in a circular motion for an intense massaging effect. In no time at all skin will appear revitalised and rejuvenated with a healthy glow. After use, gently squeeze out excess water and leave to dry so it can be used over and over again!

 

TRS are launching with two Travel Retail Exclusive Duo Packs plus a Mini Facial Sponge, all of which are perfect for travel.

 

In addition to the Konjac “wonder sponges”, TRS recently discovered Dr.PAWPAW’s Multipurpose Soothing Balm and have never looked back! The phenomenal product contains natural fermented pawpaw and provides relief for dry irritated skin, moisturises lips, nails and cuticles, and dry cracked skin on hands, heels and elbows. Its calming properties help with prickly heat and can create a base for makeup. The balm can also be used for adding finishing touches to hair and smoothing brows and also helps with insect bites and minor abrasions. A complete all-rounder!

 


Co-Founder Johnny Paterson comments “Whilst Dr.PAWPAW is only three years old, we have been delighted with the reception the brand has received and the love people already have for our hero balms. We have been inundated with requests and a real demand for more and more products, which has been incredible. Now we are sold in 14 countries and are very excited about our international expansion over the next few years.”

 

The award winning Dr.PAWPAW range is having huge success in the UK, Russia, Spain and Germany and bloggers, celebrities and MUA’s have already named it as a cult skincare brand and the best multi-tasking beauty buy. The secret is OUT!!

 

TRS are launching with the best selling Original Balm along with two tinted versions and an exclusive duo pack.

 

Konjac Sponges and Dr.PAWPAW balms will be available to purchase on board Monarch Airlines this summer with further listings due to be announced shortly! Stay tuned for more TRS news and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @trs_talks.

Happy New Year and May the Force be with you!

As we bid farewell to an amazing 2016, the TRS team can’t help feel that 2017 is set to be the best year yet! With the addition of fantastic new brands, exciting new product development, and an appetite for doing things differently in Travel Retail.

Over the winter months, Star Wars mania has taken over TRS headquarters. Starting with the phenomenal success of the Star Wars Lightsaber Toothbrush range with sales reaching over 150,000 units in 2016! Stay tuned for new character designs and Travel Retail Exclusive gift sets!

 

The second wave hit when TRS signed an exclusive supply deal with the license owners of the Star Wars Fragrance Collection, launching a range of six EDP fragrances at World Duty Free stores across the UK, coinciding with the release of the blockbuster Disney film, “Rogue One”.

 

Neil Jerzak from Star Wars Fragrances, says “Our Star Wars fragrance collection launched in World Duty Free (UK) stores in November. Having visited the Gatwick store personally, I must say the customer experience and engagement was incredible. The Star Wars fragrances feature in primary positions, giving the consumers an opportunity to touch, sample and experience the fragrances. We are delighted by the presentation of the product and the support offered by World Duty Free.”

 

 

The next exciting installment of the Star Wars story is Tangle Teezer’s collaboration with Disney! The best selling detangling hairbrush brand will be launching two new Star Wars themed Compact Styler brushes in February 2017 alongside brand new Disney Princess and Frozen designs. These add to the growing list of Tangle Teezer collaborations, which include the famed fashion designers Lulu Guinness, and Markus Lupfer plus Limited Edition items from the super-cute Hello Kitty brand to the funky and kitsch accessories brand, Skinny Dip. Watch this space for the fabulous Flamingo prints this summer!

It’s a kind of Magic!!

MagicstripesTRS continues to fulfill their mission statement by providing the Travel Retail industry with innovative concepts, new ideas and a refreshing approach to sales by working in partnership with Tourvest UK Duty Free to launch their new product, “MAGICSTRIPES” on board all flight routes from July 2015.

MAGICSTRIPES offers invisible, immediate eyelid lifting – surgery free!

The dermatologically tested transparent strips make eyes look years younger in seconds when applied to clean skin. Extremely quick and simple to use, MAGICSTRIPES are available in Small and Medium sizes with enough for over a month’s daily use in each pack, essential for a fast fix to drooping eyelids (RRP £18 / TR RRP £15).

Studies show that eyelid surgery is on the rise and is the second most common surgical procedure in the UK after breast augmentation. Interestingly, eyelid surgery applies to both women and men with 15% more operations across both sexes carried out during 2013 than in 2012.

However, not all are brave enough to go under the knife, and Natalie Franz, top make-up artist in the fashion and music industry and founder of MAGICSTRIPES, says you can avoid surgery and the associated risks but achieve the same effects!

Natalie is no stranger to secret beauty tricks and for over 15 years has worked with celebrities including Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and The Black Eyed Peas. It was during a trip to Tokyo, looking for new inspirations and techniques that Natalie disovered this intriguing new product.

In Asia, large, round eyes are seen as an ideal of beauty and women there use to it to lift their eyelids and thus to zoom the eye optically.

Out of curiosity, Natalie immediately tried the MAGICSTRIPES and was amazed by the effect. With a few easy steps she looked fresher and years younger! Since then she has been using them daily and also uses them for clients during photo shoots, fashion and stage shows and decided to introduce them to the European market.

Nigel Bennett says “We are thrilled to have been selected by Natalie Franz to develop this exciting and innovative brand within travel retail and build on their early success with key retailers to include Harvey Nichols and Selfridges. We feel the brand has great sales potential in all travel retail channels and with superb compact and slim line packaging this will enable airlines in particular to increase spend per head without compromising on valuable cart space.”

Travel Retail Solutions smooths path for Tangle Teezer into WDF

Travel Retail Solutions are working in partnership to launch the world’s best-selling detangling hairbrush brand “Tangle Teezer” into World Duty Free Airport stores next month.

With nineteen brushes sold every minute across the globe, the airport retail environment is an exciting opportunity for the brand and its success has already been proven by Gebr. Heinemann who launched Tangle Teezer last year and now stock the range in twenty of their airport locations including Frankfurt and Berlin.

This April, a range of Tangle Teezer Compact Styler hairbrushes will be introduced to select UK airport stores including London’s Heathrow and Gatwick. The range will include best selling colours “Pink Sizzle” (Pink), “Feline Groovy” (Leopard Print) and the much sought after Limited Edition Compact Styler designed by Lulu Guinness.

Airline listings also continue to grow for Tangle Teezer following the launch of two new Travel Retail Exclusive products for Summer 2015, the COMPACT STYLER BLACK/PURPLE and the tantrum solving CHILDRENS COMPACT FLOWER! Over 30 airline stockists include British Airways, Air Berlin, Thomas Cook Denmark and Singapore Airlines.

Abi Bright says: “Tangle Teezer is seen by some as a non-premium brand. The collaboration with Lulu Guinness and the launch with World Duty Free really allay these fears. Tangle Teezer is a simple yet fantastic product, which solves an everyday problem and is loved by celebrities and professional hairstylists alike – don’t leave home without it!!
