That just-got-back-from-the-beach glow, rosy cheeks, and healthy strands…Aussie babes pull off effortless beauty like nobody else on the planet. It’s a look that’s as enviable as it is easy to execute—if you have the right products, that is. Luckily, there are some stellar Australian beauty brands and products you can try out yourself. And no, you don’t have to journey Down Under to get your hands on these covetable lotions, potions, and elixirs.
Scroll on for our favorite Australian beauty exports that you can score Stateside.
Edible Beauty Australia
As the name suggests, Edible Beauty Australia—which BTW was founded by naturopath Anna Mitsios—makes a range that is literally good enough to eat. We’re not suggesting that you start snacking on cleanser and serum (the brand does, however, have a handful of beauty teas for sipping), only that the botanical-driven topicals do delicious things for your complexion.
Can’t get enough clean beauty? Join the club. We’re about to further your obsession. Introducing Dr Roebuck’s, an Aussie-made skincare line that’s all about keeping things au naturel. So, no pesky parabens and sulfates! Everything is packed with earth-grown ingredients—notably aloe vera, ginseng, jojoba, and witch hazel—and backed by science. Pretty awesome, right?
Oz is blessed with so many incredible natural resources. (Google “kakadu plum” and “desert lime.” We’ll wait.) Anyway, Generation Clay leverages another mainstay from Down Under (you guessed it)— Australian clay, specifically pink kaolin, purple bentonite, and activated charcoal. The assortment is small, but each of the three masks is mighty in its ability to purify and refine.
Aēsop kicked things off in 1987. Over the past three decades, the Melbourne-headquartered company has grown exponentially to include offices across the globe, plus an impressive range of 80+ hair, face, body, and fragrance products. You can stock up on the signature striped bottles at well-designed retail shops, from New York to Tokyo.
While some brands have a mile-long list of offerings, others prefer to keep things to a small selection. Insert Lano, best known for its cult-favorite lip balms, ointments, and hand creams, which are worth trekking to Australia just to try. Luckily, you don’t have go far for satisfaction, since Lano ships its lanolin-infused essentials to the United States.
Founded by Aussie-born supermodel Miranda Kerr, Kora Organics features a range of cleansers, moisturizers, oils, masks, supplements, and more that promises—and delivers—lit-from-within radiance. Not only are all the products made with certified organic ingredients, but the photogenic pastel packaging is perfect (try saying that five times fast) for those bathroom #shelfies.
There’s a reason Grown Alchemist has such a loyal following. Repeat after us: “biocompatible beauty.” In layman's terms, the company takes an innovative approach that marries biology and cosmetic chemistry. (All the science-y stuff happens at research labs in Australia, London, Paris, Switzerland, and Spain.) The result? High-quality youth boosters folks love.
