As our Australian athletes compete on the world stage in Rio, our team here at Kiana Beauty Melbourne have chosen five of the best Australian beauty products which we feel are deserving of gold medals.
A newcomer on the beauty scene, the Activating Water Essence from organic skincare company Jurlique, may not make you swim faster, but it does promise to continuously hydrate, soften and revitalise skin.
Containing Marshmallow Root Extract, just a few drops applied morning and night before your serum will boost the performance of your serum and moisturiser.
How's that for a team player?
Sukin Super Greens Detoxifying Clay Masque, $15.95
Athletes have to eat a healthy and balanced diet to ensure their bodies can perform at their best and that definitely includes plenty of green vegies. But those nutritious vegies can do wonders when applied to your skin too.
The Sukin Super Greens Detoxifying Clay Masque is jam-packed full of super greens such as kale, spirulina and parsley, as well as cranberries and goji berries, to leave your skin looking and feeling healthy, clean and radiant.
You can even leave the mask on to work its magic while you sit on the couch eating your acai bowl (or ice-cream, if you prefer) and cheer the Aussies on!
Bondi Sands Liquid Gold Self Tanning Dry Oil, $19.95
If there were a tanning Olympics, Bondi Sands would definitely be one of the favourites.
Formulated with Argan Oil to moisturise skin and Coconut for a fresh scent, Liquid Gold is Bondi Sands' longest lasting tan, sets super quickly and does not need to be washed off.
This is one situation where getting the gold will help reward your skin with the bronze.
Napoleon Perdis Personal Trainer Serum Foundation, $69.00
Athletes have personal trainers for their bodies, so why not a personal trainer for your skin?
This new product from Aussie makeup guru Napoleon Perdis, acts as a serum and is full of skin boosting ions to deliver plumpness and moisture to your skin, whilst also multi-tasking as a sheer, lightweight foundation.
Available in eight shades, your skin will be glowing like a winner in no time.
Milk & Co. Milk by Michael Klim Moisturising Shave Milk, $14.95
What better way to celebrate the Olympics than with a product which is proudly Australian made and owned, and is actually created by a gold medal-winning Australian Olympian?
This Moisturising Shave Milk is perfect for all skin types and will leave post-shaved skin feeling cool, hydrated and refreshed. And if there's one thing apart from swimming that Michael Klim knows, it's how to shave.

Finally, go Aussies!
Holidays are fantastic at any time of the year, but especially in the middle of Winter as the weather gets colder, clouds get greyer and the days get shorter.
Whether you're one of those smug, clever people that booked a holiday months ago, or you've spontaneously decided you need to escape, our team at Kiana Beauty has you covered with our favourite travel beauty essentials matched to your holiday style.
FUN IN THE SUN
Fleeing the cold for warmer climates? There's something so appealing about a tropical holiday at the beach or a resort to refuel the soul.
But don't forget to look after your skin and hair while you are enjoying those cocktails at the swim-up bar!

Australia. We may be small, but we are mighty.
Historically, our relative geographical isolation from the rest of the world has created a spirit of creativity and innovation which has extended to the current crop of Australian beauty brands. With many of them having an ethos of using natural and organic ingredients, it’s easy to see why Australian products are trusted and desired around the world.
We’ve chosen a few of our favourite “Little Aussie Battlers” in the world of skincare and makeup, all available now from Kiana Beauty. We also still have free standard shipping for all orders in Australia.
Happy Australia Day!

According to good old Wikipedia, with a population of around 24 million, Australia is the 52nd most populous country in the world. Despite our relatively small population and our distance from most other countries, we are definitely not a country to be ignored.
In areas such as acting, music, fashion and sports, Aussies are making a name for themselves and punching above their weight and the world of beauty is no exception.

Oli2015 was a momentous year for the team at Kiana Beauty!
We proudly launched our online store, had two children start school, welcomed two new babies, become a Grandmother again, watched one of our sons get married in stunning Sorrento - Italy, and experienced some magical moments with loved ones in Sri Lanka, Maldives, Italy, Switzerland and Greece. It has been an exhausting yet truly beautiful year.
We're all looking forward to slowing down the pace a bit over the summer and spending time with our... 🡒 Continue Reading
