Cosmoprof 2012: Hola Lola

One of the neat aspects of covering a show like Cosmoprof North America (held in Las Vegas July 22 – 24) is that you discover plenty of international brands that are hoping to find an avenue to sell their goods in the US.

Take Hola Lola, for instance! Hola Lola made its first official US introduction at Cosmoprof, showcasing its adorable pink, black and white girly packaging, fun bath and body gifts like shower caps and eye masks, and body products such as body mists and shower gels. However, this mother-daughter business has been around in Colombia, South America, for five years!

I was drawn into the company by the colorful branding. Malala, the “daughter” part of the mother-daughter partnership, said that the line is designed to offer accessories that are beauty-focused and complement the bath and body product line. I’d say they nailed that!

Once I stepped into the booth – which smelled amazing! – I found a lot of great items in the Hola Lola lineup!

These shower caps are better than the ones you find in a box on your hotel sink counter! They are colorful, and have prints on them! I spotted one in zebra print!

These are adorable makeup bags! The one on the left is larger, perfect for makeup when you’ve got a multiple night vacation or work trip. The small bag on the right is perfect for overnighters or to hold your makeup in your work bag, gym bag or any other larger bag you might stuff it in!

These aren’t our mothers’ eye masks! Look at the cute designs! Girly pinks and blues, pinks and blacks. Love it!

(This leopard-print cutie is a Lola Pop, which has dusting powder and you tap it on yourself to shimmer! Very cute!)

Hola Lola’s scents are broken down into three lines: Sweet, Sexy and Cocktails. Scents such as Raspberry Cosmo, Moon Candy and Sugar Petals are heady, and available in everything from dusting powders and creams, to antibacterial gels and hydrating mists.

The product line ranges in price from $3 to $40. Although you can’t get any of the actual bath and body products for your skin from Hola Lola in the US yet (that’s why they were there – to find those distributors!), it is possible to purchase items such as the shower caps, makeup cases and eye masks, online through the brand’s Canadian distributor.
