15 Aussie Beauty Products We’re Absolutely Loving Right Now

You beauty.

1. Sukin Oil Balancing Mattifying Facial Moisturiser – $14

"This is one of the first moisturisers I've used that claims to have a mattifying effect and actually works. I use this after washing my face and find that it reduces my breakouts and makes my skin feel nice. Plus it doesn't leave a sticky residue on your face after you apply it. Given that I have combination skin, this is now my regular go-to!" — Ryan PaturzoGet it at Priceline.

2. Australis Fresh and Flawless Pressed Powder – $14

"I bought this after I ran out of MAC Studio Fix Powder and haven't looked back since. This product is great on its own or to set a foundation. Also it's cruelty free! Honestly can't go past it." — Chelsea HetheringtonGet it at Priceline.

3. Essano Rosehip Gentle Facial Exfoliator – $15

"I've heard a lot about the benefits of using rosehip-based products, so I decided to give this face wash a go. It's got a lovely scrub-like consistency that leaves my skin feeling refreshed and clean. Also I know Essano is technically a New Zealand brand, but their products are organic, are able to be recycled and aren't tested on animals, so I couldn't leave it out!" — Isha BassiGet it at Priceline.

4. Go-To Exceptionoil – $51

"I adore this Exceptionoil from Go-To because it's so versatile. It's great for dry elbows and knees, especially before applying fake tan to prevent it from cracking later on. I also like to put it on my shoulders if I'm wearing something strapless, or in winter as a hand moisturiser when the oil firms up. Best of all it's not tested on animals, has no nasties and is the perfect size for travelling." — Georgie RobertsGet it online.

5. Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Radiance-Boosting Mask – $85

BuzzFeed

"I’m not going to lie, this Napoleon Perdis mask is pretty expensive but I scooped it while it was 30% off and I had a gift card. It is the PERFECT mask to put on before you do your makeup. It just makes your skin SO soft and SO smooth, I can’t recommend it enough." — Michelle Rennex

6. Aesop Control – $23

"Aesop Control is a great pimple/spot blemish thing I use. It's all natural and goes on clear, so it doesn't look like toothpaste on your skin." — Charleen HughesGet it online or at Myer.

7. Essano Rosehip Oil – $20

"It hurts my soul a little bit to drop $20 on a tiny bottle. But this stuff is a MIRACLE worker, and it lasts for ages because you only use a couple drops at a time. In summer I pat a little bit into my skin before bed, underneath a night-time moisturiser. It’s especially good if I’ve been in the sun all day, I swear it can heal sunburn overnight. (Also this is actually a NZ brand but like...they’re great.)" — Jemima Skelley Get it at Priceline.

9. Batiste Stylist XXL Volume Spray – $10

13. Swisse Echinacea Clear Skin Moisturiser – $22

"I have combination skin which basically means that while my face loves a bit of moisture in the morning, it can get oily very quickly. But this Swisse face cream is unlike anything I've tried before – it has a serum-like consistency that instantly refreshes my face. Plus it blends easily into the skin and doesn't leave a heavy or sticky residue. It has helped cut down on breakouts too, which is a major bonus!" — Isha BassiGet it at Priceline.

14. Australis Lip Chameleon Lipstick – $14

BuzzFeed

"If you’ve never tried a green lipstick, it’s definitely something to experiment with. The idea is that once it’s on your lips, it’ll adapt into a perfect shade that matches your skin – so it looks different on everyone. I really love it because it goes on like a balm so I don’t need to look in a mirror to do it, and it feels comfortable on my lips." — Jemima Skelley

Get it from Priceline.

15. OXX Studio Matte Liquid Lipstick – $5

BuzzFeed

"While trying out makeup from Kmart, I was pleasantly surprised by how long lasting and gorgeous this lipstick turned out to be. It does dry very quickly and matte, which makes it a little uncomfortable on the lips, but for that price you really can't complain too much." — Isha Bassi
