Get Your Hands On These Coveted Aussie Beauty Picks (If You Can)

Posted by Bikini Owner

Australia is certainly responsible for its fair share of gorgeousness: stunners Miranda Kerr, Nicole Kidman, Gemma Ward, Abby Lee Kershaw and more all hail from Down Under. The continent has basically nailed that whole effortless 'beachy waves and sun-kissed glow' thing, thanks to umpteen pro female surfers who hail from those pounding shores (Sally Fitzgibbons, we're looking at you).

The beauty industry in Australia is kind of a different animal than it is here—they're far more obsessed with natural products than we are, with drugstore aisles crammed with super-luxe potions powered with local botanicals and indigenous oils. Natural beauty, it seems, is a national ethos. Which explains why the best-selling, cult fave products from Aussie brands are all surprisingly low-tech but high-powered natural elixirs that brighten skin, soften and soothe and all, of course, smell amazing. Seeing as it's Fashion Week Australia, we thought we'd clue you in on the products that Aussie beauties are constanly coveting, from lush skin oil to the ultimate surf spray.
