As they say Down Under, How you going? Or in other words, how are you? This month we travel to Australia with my Beauty Rocks Bondi Babe beauty box for the best in beach-inspired natural beauty. I am really proud of this box and put a lot of thought into it because I used to live in Melbourne. Every other month I create a beauty box that is themed around a particular country which is special to me.
Aussie girls tend to be carefree and their beach babe vibes are on point – think tousled waves, minimal makeup and hipster appeal. From sipping on a flat white at a laneway cafe, to running into the waves on a deserted beach, Aussie girls love natural beauty. And while they love the beach, they also love their skin by prioritizing sun protection and skin nourishment to prevent premature aging.
Bondi Babe was inspired by the carefree and natural spirit of Australian beauty – from the original Lucas Pawpaw Ointment created by T.P. Lucas over 100 years ago, to the Alpha-H Vitamin E Serum that is like a long, tall drink and burst of hydration for thirsty skin. This box will keep your skin nourished and sun-kissed throughout the seasons.. Here’s to endless summers, days at the beach and bronzed beauty.
You don’t have to live on an Australian beach to enjoy this little skin saver. As the latest product from cult-classic Australian brand Alpha-H, this Vitamin E Serum can be used as either a serum or as a hydration booster to your current moisturizer. Serum is the most important step in your skincare routine as it is absorbed deep down into the skin, while your moisturiser protects the outermost layer. So for maximum moisture, always be sure to use a serum. This Alpha-H Vitamin E Serum is all about hydration and suits all skin types. Not only is it full of antioxidants, but it also contains Macadamia oil (native to Australia) which helps reduce the appearance of scars caused by acne, Rosacea, sunburn, and more..
My ride-or-die beauty handbag hero. That’s right, I don’t go anywhere without it, and although this product is almost impossible to find outside of Australia, I am so excited to be able to share it with you! The Lucas Pawpaw Ointment is the original Pawpaw balm which spurned an entire industry of pawpaw brands over the last year or so. The original whose formula hasn’t changed since it was created over 100 years ago, can be used as a lip balm, a moisturiser for dry skin, a soothing agent for mosquito bites, and so much more! Savor it and love it – because you won’t find it unless you head to the land Down Under!
If you haven’t tried ModelCo yet, get on board! This Aussie brand makes fun cosmetics and natural skincare that are both cruelty-free and perfect for the modern day woman. I LOVE the ModelCo Fat Lash Volumizing Mascara because it has the most amazing shaped brush head allowing you to reach every single lash (even the tiny ones). The formula’s creamy consistency is perfect for building extra volume, so if it’s an outdoors kind of day you may only need one swipe, but if it’s a night out in the city, you can go wild with several layers!
I love a good multi-purpose product and this eyeshadow palette from Australis is just that! It can be applied either wet or dry depending on how intense of a pigment you desire. When applied wet, the pigment intensifies, making it a great palette for daily use, as well as special occasions. The bronzed shades remind me of the sun-kissed skin of Bondi Beach and the desert hues of central Australia.
