The Bondi Beauty team had the amazing opportunity to attend the 2017 Beauty Expo. The key trends from this year’s beauty expo focus on natural, organic and Australian-made beauty products.
“The response from our visitors and exhibitors to our initiatives was wonderful and really underlines how important trends in natural and Australian-made products are becoming in the beauty industry,” commented Julia Erben, Event Director for Beauty Expo Australia.
“Our exhibitors loved that there was a visual signifier of their alignment with these values, and it made seeking out natural and locally-made products a really gratifying experience for our visitors,” she said.
Here are some of our favourites:
Rejuice Face Oil RRP: $55.00
I have problematic skin, so I am always looking for products that are gentle for my skin and won’t lead to cause further breakouts. Rejuice face oil is suited for all skin types, even those with hypersensitive and problematic skin.
This serum is to be used as an alternative to your night cream and includes a concentrated mix of calming, skin nurturing ingredients with immune boosting plant oils.
The serum works to help with skin irritations, treat breakouts and contains no nut oils so it is pregnancy safe and suitable for individuals with rosacea, eczema and psoriasis. Apply daily for best results. As far as beauty oils go, this one comes at an affordable price.
Bare Soothe Day/Night Serum $120.00
This serum is jam-packed full of powerful ingredients such as argan oil and Kakadu plum extract. Argan oil is rich in vitamin E and best for people with very dry and tough skin. For skin that needs that extra boost of hydration, this is the serum for you. Plus, it’s cruelty and paraben free.
Vanessa Megan Rosewater Spray (Toner) $34.95
Vanessa Megan skincare is founded on the motto: “You should never put anything on your skin that you wouldn’t eat”.
Founder and director Vanessa Megan created her skincare brand focusing on delivering luxurious, scientifically proven, eco-friendly, natural and organic skincare products.
This is a certified organic rosewater toner to help balance the skin, making it suitable for all skin types. Bonus: with antibacterial properties, it helps fight acne. This is a summer must-have product as it hydrates the skin keeping it fresh all day long and helps your makeup last longer.
Big Towel Company Beauty Wipes (Box of 75) $10.00
This is a disposable cloth that you can use as an alternative to beauty wipes. When this first landed in my lap, I thought I wouldn’t use it much. But after one use, I was so impressed by how gentle it feels on the skin. While I felt a bit extra using sheet after sheet, this product is made from renewable sources and is 100% biodegradable so it’s not hurting the environment.
It can be used wet or dry to remove makeup, facial masks, and facial oil residue, fake tans or to simply cleanse your face… the list is endless. I love using this at the end of the day to remove makeup and is a super gentle way to remove makeup and any dirt on your skin.
