Tell us a bit about yourself!
I live in Bondi, a few minutes walk from the beach. I work in the media, specifically in magazines - print and digital. I have a podcast through work that I do with my best friend and it’s all about reality TV and pop culture. My full-time job is really demanding so my outlet is my Instagram! While my job is creative, my Instagram is a way to get creative in a different way and it’s all mine. I am really passionate about beauty and love discovering new amazing brands and products that work for my skin. Just like Dr Roebucks! It’s also been an amazing way to meet new people and lovely people in the beauty industry. I’ve also recently fallen back in love with exercise! So I do HIIT classes 3-4 times a week.
Why is skin care so important to you?
Skincare is something I’ve always been interested in but it was only in the last maybe five years or so that the obsession escalated. I became really interested in ingredients, what my skin likes/doesn’t like, learning more about brands - all of this stuff really excites me. I also had to figure out how to get rid of acne! My skin freaked out a few years ago - the worst it had ever been. So I went to a dermatologist, got great advice and a new skincare routine and then began my skincare education!
What about Dr Roebuck's made you incorporate the products into your routine?
I love supporting Australian brands so when I saw Dr Roebuck’s pop up on Instagram, I was immediately curious. Discovering the products are clean, vegan, cruelty free, created with active but minimal ingredients, all of which are native to Australia - it’s like they created the exact range I’d been dreaming of. I’ve been lucky enough to receive most of the range and everything I try, I’ve loved. My family and friends also can’t get enough and always request (or steal!) the products when they come over.
What are your two-three favorite products? Why?
This is a tough question but if I had to pick I’d say the Tassie serum, Cushie hand creme and Bondi face mist. I use these three products every single day. If I left the house or went to sleep without using the Tassie Serum, I just know my skin wouldn’t look the same or be protected the way this serum protects! It’s a dream product.
How do you use them in your routine?
As you can imagine - I use the face mist on my face - shocker! But I like to use this one throughout the day, whenever, wherever - all year round. In Summer, it’s refreshing and cooling, in Winter it perks up my dry skin. It’s amazing and smells incredible. The hand cream I use on my hands and my arms. My arms can get really dry but ever since I started using Cushie, it’s made a huge difference! I’m about to run out, so I need to stock up. The Tassie serum, I use on my face, neck and décolletage. As I mentioned earlier, this product is my absolute must-have. I recommend it to everyone! It smells like a citrusy, blueberry. I use it morning and night and I always like to have a back-up of this one because I’m paranoid of running out and being without it. It sinks right into the skin, leaves a gorgeous glow and works well under makeup. It’s my go-to like nothing else!
