This brand took off fast thanks to the fun, relatable marketing that pushed them forward. It wasn’t just their Instagram that caught our attention – their vegan scrubs soon became a firm staple in our skincare routines. Designed to exfoliate, they promote blood flow and collagen production. But it doesn’t stop there, they also help to fight breakouts, minimise scars and protect your skin from free radicals with antioxidants and natural oils. If we’re ever in Melbourne, we so want to visit their self-professed ‘Babe HQ.’
Award-winning with consistently high reviews online, this is our go-to for a truly sun-kissed effect. As a mousse, it feels easier and quicker to apply, but delivers a lovely slim-lining glow, nonetheless. It also has the Leaping Bunny logo to confirm its cruelty-free claims and that no animal tests were used in the development of the product.
Inspired by the sandy colour palette in Australia, these luminous shadows are super flattering and easy to wear for daytime or evening. The nifty brushes mean you need no eyeshadow skills either – they go on in a single, silky swoosh.
For beloved brand BECCA it all started with ‘glowy’ products that were inspired by low-key - but radiant - beauty in Australia. Still to this day their cult beach tints are one of their bestsellers with their jelly-style formulas that melt into the skin for a natural, healthy flush. Designed for use on both lips and cheeks, they’re the ultimate handbag essential with a water-resistant pigment that keeps colour going for hours on end.
New to the UK, these clear, dinky patches are set to make real waves across the beautysphere. Dermatologically approved, they feature 24 micro darts that dispense an effective blend of hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid, niacinamide, antimicrobial oligopeptide-76 and sodium hydroxide – five ingredients that instantly work to stop blemishes in their tracks. Another bonus? Not only are they super clear and so discreet, they adhere to the skin for hours, minimising the urge to scratch and pick.
With the super chic packaging and lightweight formulas, it’s easy to see why Dr Roebuck’s has become a cult favourite among experts and editors in the UK. Our favourite from the range is their daily moisturiser. Laced with macadamia oil, hyaluronic acid and rosehip oil, it’s ideal for those with parched, dry complexions, or anyone with skin needing nourishment. We also recommend seeking out the brand’s hydrating mist for a refreshing spritz of aloe vera, cucumber and vitamin B3 – ideal for summer.
From the brand that sells a product every 45 seconds comes this impressive BB Cream. Its subtle tint means you can forgo foundation altogether or wear it as a base for an extra level of luminosity. The juicy, hyaluronic acid formula also means you won’t get any pilling or flaking which can often occur with some chalky BB’s.
This glow-giving mask sold 50,000 jars in just eight weeks after launching and it’s easy to see why – the results speak for themselves. The pink and kaolin clay absorb dirt and impurities, drawing toxins and pollution out of the skin instantly. Some claim it’s helped reduce the appearance of acne scars and pores, which could be down to the soothing witch hazel and healing lactic acid.
Founded by Australian-born Poppy King, Lipstick Queen is a brand with all-natural formulas made from waxes and oils. King prefers to keep her range streamlined, playing with pigment levels that offer similar hues in both opaque and sheer versions for those who find lipstick daunting. We can’t get enough of the latest nude’s range in nine wearable shades, with something for everyone and a creamy dry down that fades seamlessly.
