I love the idea of supporting local brands, but I don’t often come across Aussie brands that are strikingly original. I’m always on the lookout for new brands that move the skincare conversation forward, but most local brands tend to follow international trends rather than create new ones. There are exceptions to this, of course (Mukti, Sodashi, MV Skincare etc.), but a lot of the local products I try feel like variations of other products that already exist.
When Edible Beauty approached me to try their products, I was initially sceptical – but I’m so glad that I accepted their offer. Their products are exceptional, and they really do have a unique point of view. Here are some of my top picks from the brand: View Post
I thought I’d review these masks together because they are all honey-based exfoliating masks with similar textures (they all have a jam-like consistency) and ingredients (turmeric, for instance, one of the many common ingredients). Also, while they all smell different, they have sweet/savoury scents that are somewhat related. Technically, the Josh Rosebrook is marketed as an exfoliator, but it’s meant to be left on the skin like a mask, so I’ve included that as well.
Every so often one encounters a brand that’s truly a cut above the rest. I’d heard only good things about U.S. based brand La Bella Figura (‘a beautiful figure’ in Italian), so my expectations were sky high. Victoria, the brand co-founder, handpicked the products below for my acne/pigmentation-prone skin. After using them for around two months, I’m truly impressed. La Bella Figura has become one of my favourite new-to-me brands. The products are meticulously formulated with a minimalist feel to them. Each ingredient is carefully chosen to serve a precise purpose and the products deliver. Without further ado, let’s discover the products!
I was really excited to receive this month’s Beauty Heroes box featuring Purify Face Wash and Activate Body Wash from American brand Linné. Being a Beauty Heroes ambassador, I received the box almost a month before its release, and I have been using these products regularly for the last month. Effective face washes are hard to find in the green beauty world, and I wanted to see if these worked… and I’m impressed.
