Australia is home to some of the most beautiful coasts, so it’s no surprise they have some amazing products made with local natural ingredients that are great for the skin. If you’re heading to the land down under, these are the products you should check out!
1. Bondi Sands Self Tan
You can bet Australians know their stuff when it comes to self tans. As Australia’s top-selling self-tanning brand, you can achieve beautifully bronzed skin without the risk of skin damage. Bondi Sands was able to create a salon-quality natural colour with a longer shelf life than most tanning products on the market.
Australis is a popular affordable drug-store brand that offers all kinds of products. Some of their more popular items are their Beach Days Eyeshadow Palette with vibrant shades of turquoise and corals, or iconic Banana Powder to cover redness on the skin!
Kora Organics is a skincare and body care line founded by supermodel, Miranda Kerr. All of their products use natural and organic oils that benefit the skin including their Tumeric Glow Moisturiser, which intensely smoothes and hydrates the skin.
4. Lucas Papaw Ointment
This ointment is one of Australia’s cult-favourite beauty products made with Petroleum Jelly and Papaya Extract that is great for dry lips, cuticles and the skin. This is a holy grail for all Australians and they never leave the house without it.
Based in Sydney, ModelCo is a cruelty-free beauty brand that changed the conventional way of putting on makeup. Creator, Shelly Barrett, wanted to create products that women had always wanted but never could find, such as the first-ever heated eyelash curler or airbrush self-tan.
6. Lanolips 101 Ointment
This is yet another amazing ointment from the land down under. Made from 100% natural lanolin, an oil taken from sheep’s wool, it is one of the ultimate moisturisers for any chapped skin. This has easily become a favourite for many, especially their lip balm tinted version that adds an extra pop of colour to the lips.
7. Grown Alchemist
This all-natural organic skincare company is revolutionising traditional approaches to anti-ageing skin, body, and hair by forgoing harmful chemicals. The brand boasts their formulas made with botanical ingredients that will improve the skin in the four building blocks of beauty — Collagen Type I, Collagen Type IV, Elastin, and Hydration. One of their favourites is the Hand Creams that are rich in moisture and beautifully scented.
Living by the water, you can expect everyone to have some beautiful voluminous beachy waves. One of the ways to achieve that hair without requiring you to actually get in the water is O&M’s Surf Bomb Seas Salt Spray. Their line of haircare is free of all sulfates, parabens, phthalates, but still effective in adding textures and waves. The formula can be used on both wet and dry hair without making it dry or sticky.
9. A’kin Rosehip Oil
This is another product that many Australians swear by and there are good reasons why. This oil is enriched with pure active botanicals with a high concentration of vitamin A and E and Omegas 9, 3, and 6 essential fatty acids. This award-winning oil helps restore moisture and reduces signs of ageing, resulting in healthy radiant looking skin. Trust us, you do not want to go home without this!
10. Face of Australia
At an affordable price, Face of Australia offers a large range of products that doesn’t skim on quality. They are known to have great face products such as mineral powders, bronzers, blushes and their Mineral Therapy Illuminators.
