Life is never dull here at Kiana Beauty and we love celebrating good news with our team. Big congratulations to Jess, our Clinique beauty expert, on the arrival of her gorgeous baby girl.
With Jess taking some well-deserved time out to spend with bub, we are thrilled to introduce our newest team member here at Kiana Beauty Melbourne.
Jacinta is originally from Shepparton and has worked in the beauty industry for ten years, combining her passion for pharmacy and beauty along the way. Jacinta enjoys weekend escapes, the beach and farming with her husband and it was the excitement of a new farming adventure that brought Jacinta and her husband to Melbourne.
And there must be something in the waters because Jacinta and her husband are also expecting their first baby later in the year. Congratulations! We can't wait to meet your little one. Looks like Mother's Day 2017 will be even better and busier.
We sat down with Jacinta to learn a bit more about herself as well some of the newest products from Clinique.
KB: Hi Jacinta. Welcome to our team! How did you get started in the beauty world?
Jacinta: While working in pharmacy, I studied Beauty Therapy and then worked at a day spa for two years. I have also had experience starting and running my own beauty treatment rooms as well as managing a beauty counter at a busy rural pharmacy. I love my job and being busy and I get a real thrill out of helping customers find the best skincare and makeup products to suit their needs.
Tell us a little about the new eye cream from Clinique.
Clinique Pep Start Eye Cream helps brighten your eyes and make you look wide awake. It targets puffiness and also works as a primer for eye makeup. It has a great gel-cream texture and feels really cooling when it is applied. You can even keep it in the fridge for an extra refreshing cool burst. It is a lifesaver for those times when you haven’t managed to get enough sleep and you don’t want it to show around your eyes.
We hear there’s a new product in the Moisture Surge range.
Yes, Clinique’s Moisture Surge range is formulated for people with dry or dehydrated skin in need of a moisture boost. The new Clinique Moisture Surge Melting Mask Balm has a really luxurious silky texture and absorbs straight into skin to nourish and restore comfort. It’s one of those products that can be used many ways - you can use it as a spot treatment in the morning on any dry patches, you can use it as a mask for an express ten minute hydration boost, or you can leave it on all night for those times when your skin really needs some intensive TLC.
And are there any new makeup products from Clinique that we should know about?
Yes, the Clinique Pop family is growing. We've just got in the new Clinique Pop Glaze Sheer Lip Colour + Primer. I love the sheer but gorgeous colour, the eight hours lasting power thanks to the added primer, plus it keeps lips hydrated through the day. My current favourite shade is Fireball Pop.
Thank you Jacinta! We are so excited to welcome you to our team.
