Welcome to GlamPod!
My name is Ola and before I tell you about my product, I want to tell you a little bit about myself. Although I've spent the last six years in university, I've always loved the world of beauty. I remember comparing lipsticks, eyeliners and eyebrow pencils with friends in cafés and spending my school breaks watching YouTube tutorials from Carli Bybel and Jaclyn Hill. To help pay my way through school I worked as a makeup consultant at a cosmetic boutique, educating clients on makeup and skin care while always staying up-to-date with the latest industry trends. One of my favorite makeup innovations is the beauty sponge. In my opinion, nothing blends products like foundation or concealer better. Unfortunately, many of my clients don't trust beauty sponges because of their negative experiences with them.
So here's the low-down: Sponges can harbour harmful bacteria and will even grow mold if stored improperly. This can lead to deterioration of the sponge, and worse, breakouts on your skin. Not to mention, it's pretty tricky to properly travel with your sponges! Last year, it hit me that I've never seen a product that allows makeup lovers to store and travel with their sponges easily and hygienically, so I set out to create one myself.
For over a year I've been working on 3D prototypes of a pod for beauty sponges. It took me 15 tries to get the right design, but I can finally announce that GlamPod — a mini container designed to keep your beauty sponge portable and clean — is here. Plus, it's manufactured in Airdrie, Alberta so every time you purchase my product, you're supporting small, local business.
Whether you're a professional make-up artist or getting ready for a glam night out, GlamPod is for you. I can't wait for you to try it!
