There's nothing better than finding a new product and thinking, “this is genius!” Products that solve problems we didn't even know we had make us feel like we hit the jackpot. That’s essentially what the brands from QVC and HSN’s The Big Find are like. If you haven’t heard of The Big Find, it’s the shopping networks’ search for beauty, home, fashion, and lifestyle companies that are innovative and inspiring. Brands don’t just get the opportunity to present their products to a new audience, but they also receive mentorship opportunities, with many of the brands being women or minority-owned.
The Big Find’s last two years of winners and finalists have continued to produce products that are fun, affordable, and downright useful.
We looked through brands that started on The Big Find and found some of our favorites that can add to your summer style, beauty needs, home decor, and more. Here are 11 brands you'll love that got their start on The Big Find.
1. Maison 276
Maison 276 is a beauty brand that specialized in hair care, moisturizers, and cleansers. The brand was founded by Angel Cornelius in 2016 and featured on The Big Find in 2019. Cornelius sought to create cruelty- and chemical-free beauty products that were still effective without being too expensive. The brand prides itself on using all-natural ingredients in its formulas, including coconut oil, shea butter, and lemongrass oil.
Maison 276’s body butter has a near-perfect rating on QVC. It might be the mix of oils (jojoba, coconut, and olive) as well as the shea butter that leaves skin moisturized without being greasy. With hints of pomegranate and lavender, the thick cream is like a spring or summer day in a jar. The brand is also certified cruelty-free and has the QVC Clean Beauty seal, indicating no sulfates, parabens, or mineral oil.
2. The Strappee
Face masks and face mask accessories pretty much became a part of daily life during COVID. The Strappee’s motto is “take the hassle out of masking.” The company’s thick, polyester grosgrain strap snaps on and attaches to face masks. So when you want to take your mask off for a few but keep it within close reach, just lower it while it stays attached to the strap. The material also has a breakaway clasp. The original comes in a range of colors, including pink, red, navy, lime green, and there’s even the option to customize a strap with text. The brand was featured on The Big Find in 2020.
3. Central Mountain Coffee
You've heard of K-Pods, but have you heard of coffee cubes? Central Mountain Coffee developed Kubbees—instant coffee in a cube—and was featured on The Big Find in 2021. The family-owned brand sells coffee, tea, and cocoa from Colombia.
When you need your caffeine fix but you’re away from your coffee machine or just don’t feel like heading to your local shop, Kubbees can feel like a lifesaver. An order includes two 24-packs (one vanilla and one hazelnut) of Colombian brew. Just add the cubes to hot water, stir, and sip. These would be really great for anyone on the go or traveling. The packs have a 4.3-star rating at QVC, with reviewers saying they're great, but warn they can take a long time to dissolve.
4. Nude Barre
Anyone who’s ever shopped for a pair of nude shoes or undergarments understands not all skin-tone hues are created equally. That struggle has been slightly eliminated with Nude Barre, which featured on The Big Find in 2020. The brand has underwear and hosiery that comes in an impressive 12 shades. The colors don’t have names like “ivory” or “cinnamon” or “cocoa,” but 12 am, 1 am, etc. The website’s shade matching tool makes it easy to find the right hue. The bralette in particular, which reviewers praise for its breathability and comfort, is perfect under a t-shirt, low-cut dress, or pretty much anything.
Cleo+Coco makes all-natural beauty products including deodorant, dry shampoo, and cleansing bars. The brand is sold at many major retailers, including QVC, Amazon, and Thrive Market. The brand was founded by Suzannah Raff, who sought to find the perfect formula for cruelty- and aluminum-free deodorant.
Cleo+Coco’s products have hundreds of positive reviews on QVC, especially the dynamic duo of the deodorant and dusting powder. Both are free of aluminum and talc to keep your body smelling fresh. They’re packed with charcoal, bentonite clay, essential oils, and Cleo+Coco is certified a Clean Beauty brand by QVC. The powder can actually be used as a dry shampoo or even on your body when you want to freshen up. The combo pack is available in grapefruit bergamot or lavender vanilla.
6. Billy Footwear
It’s not unusual to find zippers on sneakers for kids, but what about adults who want the ease of sneakers without having to lace up every single time? Billy Footwear’s sneakers are pretty stylish low tops with a wrap-around zipper that begins at the toe and extends to the ankle, making it easy to just step in and zip up. The colors range from neutrals like black, navy, and charcoal, or even a standout rose gold.
Billy Footwear was built with universal design in mind, meaning it was built to allow any wearer to easily slip in and out of it. The brand's emphasis on inclusivity has won thousands of fans across the world and propelled the brand to The Big Find in 2020.
7. Butterfly Mover
The Butterfly Mover is a small platform on wheels that allows you to easily load heavy objects and wheel them around your home. It holds up to 200 pounds and will become your BFF if you find yourself constantly lifting, or even sliding, heavy objects at home. The set comes with two caddies and you simply place your object (a heavy potted plant, massive bag of pet food, anything!) on top and go. The wheels on the caddy roll smoothly and the detachable, 37-inch handle makes it easy to pull without straining your back.
8. Mented Cosmetics
Mented Cosmetics started when founders KJ Miller and Amanda E. Johnson wanted to cater to women of color who all too often have limited and unflattering foundation colors. The brand was featured on The Big Find in 2020 and offers a range of products from eyeshadow palettes, matte lipsticks to bronzer. It’s their Skin by Mented Duo that has a perfect 5-star customer rating. The combo includes a hydrating foundation that’s available in more than a dozen shades and a brush. If you’re unsure of your shade, the site offers an easy-to-follow comparison guide.
9. Pacific Northwest Cookie Company
Vegan and gluten-free cookies that actually taste good and better than “regular” cookies—that’s how Pacific Northwest Cookie Company customers describe the offerings from the Washington-based brand, which was featured on The Big Find in 2021.
To really sample all of the flavors, the Build Your Own Cookie Box is a dream. There are six options to choose from and you can mix and match how you feel. Go for an entire six-pack of chocolate chip, half and half with double chocolate and oatmeal raisin, or choose one of each flavor. The box can be a one-time purchase or true cookie lovers will appreciate the option to order a subscription.
10. Poppy + Sage
Summer style isn’t officially complete without a straw or bamboo bag. Luckily, Poppy + Sage has plenty of those. And they’re sustainably made by female artisans in Bali. The sizes range from small bucket bags to crossbodies with colorful lining or oversized totes for a beach day. Poppy + Sage was featured in The Big Find in 2021 and you can shop highly-rated bags from the brand at QVC.
11. Sassy Jones
If standout, statement-making accessories aren’t your thing, then Sassy Jones might not be for you. However, if you appreciate some flair, then the collection of colorful and printed handbags, earrings, scarves, and more will have you covered. Sassy Jones was feature on The Big Find in 2020 and 2021, and you can shop a full range of accessories from the brand on HSN.
