From Paris To Robina - Sephora Australia Is Coming For You Queensland

Closing out 2017 with 13 stores, global beauty retailer SEPHORA has today announced its first new retail location for 2018: Robina Queensland, opening in May.

“Following the success of our Pacific Fair store, which opened in 2016, it’s clear the demand from Gold Coast beauty lovers is there,” said SEPHORA Country Manager Libby Amelia. “Robina Town Centre is at the heart of shopping, dining and leisure for locals of the Sunshine State and we are excited to bring the best of global beauty to their doorstep.” 

On what SEPHORA will bring to Robina Town Centre, Amelia highlights the cult, luxe and exclusive offerings from local and international brands: “With key makeup brands like FENTY BEAUTY, Huda and Anastasia Beverly Hills; niche hair care brands such as IGK, Drybar and OUAI alongside our latest skincare launch Fresh, there will be a huge focus on the new and exclusive.” 

New brands aren’t the only thing Gold Coast locals can look forward to at SEPHORA, as the location will be the first in Australia to introduce Virtual Artist technology in-store. Virtual Artist allows customers to virtually try-on products and compare the latest shades of lip and eye must-haves. “Our teams of talented Beauty Advisors are on-hand to provide foundation matching and a wide variety of makeup services, but the beauty of Virtual Artist is that you can try on hundreds of colours all on your own, and from the traction we have via our app, we know our customers absolutely love it,” said Amelia.

Of the partnership, Robina Town Centre General Manager Shaine Beveridge added: “We are delighted to welcome global cosmetics retailer Sephora to our growing and diverse portfolio here at Robina Town Centre. The addition of this internationally renowned brand signals another exciting chapter for our Centre as we continue to strengthen our retail offer, and deliver our customers with an outstanding shopping, dining and entertainment experience.” 

The Queensland countdown is in full swing for the Commonwealth Games – and now you can add SEPHORA to that list.

Glow, or the light that makes skin shine from the inside out, is one of the most searched-for beauty terms online. It’s become a main component of beauty. From catwalk models to yoga and health gurus, everyone is sporting glowing skin. But this is no short-term trend; in fact, the glow has become an outside sign of success. Radiant skin signals a balanced life and a fulfilling lifestyle. It has now become more than a beauty ideal. It’s an ideal for life that all women want to achieve.

Without a doubt, one of the factors that helps regenerate the skin’s glow is sleep. But not every hour in the night is as helpful as the next. Indeed, optimal skin regeneration and cell renewal, in which the signs of fatigue are replaced with a glowing complexion, takes place between 10:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. It’s important to sleep well during this period. However, when we’re living life in the fast lane and starting the next day’s tasks the evening before we go to bed, it can often be impossible to establish a natural rhythm. As a result, your complexion loses its glow.

To allow skin to regenerate itself no matter how well you sleep, Absolue developed a new product, Absolue Precious Cells – Rose Drop. This concentrated peel designed for evening use features a rose-based nourishing oil that leaves skin feeling soft and clean, boasting a refined texture, and glowing with health.

Anna Heinrich + Tim Robards partner with organic skincare brands

The recently launched Australian skincare brand Blessed by Nature, is delighted to announce a partnership with media personality Anna Heinrich. With her healthy lifestyle, natural beauty and love of nutritious ingredients, Anna is the perfect fit for Blessed by Nature’s range of natural and organic skincare products.

Known for her inspiring Instagram feed and lifestyle blog Love Always Anna, the Sydney-based 31-year-old is frequently seen on the red carpet and at events. As an avid beauty junkie, the glamorous blonde is always on the hunt for the perfect products to help with her sensitive skin.

“I am so excited to be partnering with this organic skincare brand. With my sensitive skin, I need skincare products that are both gentle and effective,” says Anna. “I love that the Blessed by Nature range is packed with natural and organic ingredients, as well as being eco-friendly through recycled packaging and not tested on animals.”

As an Australian brand, Blessed by Nature’s ingredients are obtained locally from the most sustainable sources. The collection contains Australian botanicals, extracts, vitamins and natural antioxidants to help reduce the signs of ageing, plus natural essential oils that create a beautiful, sensory experience.

Co-founder of Blessed by Nature Mark Tucker comments on the collaboration: “We are delighted to have the true Australian beauty Anna Heinrich on board to help launch Blessed by Nature to the Australian market. Our priority was to create a beautiful natural and organic skincare range that is both affordable and effective. With no hidden nasties, our lovingly crafted range works for all skin types!”

The Blessed by Nature range of Australian skincare products is available online and in Priceline stores nationally, with prices starting at $8.95.

Australian-owned Handsome Men’s Skincare is proud to introduce fitness guru Tim Robards as their brand ambassador. Known for his rugged good looks, chiselled physique and dedication to health, fitness and clean living, Tim knows the importance of looking after himself, which makes him the perfect fit for Australia’s leading skincare collection for men.

The brand-new range offers men an extensive collection of quality grooming products made with natural and organic ingredients that are effective for male skin, enjoyable to use and look stylish in their presentation.

On a quest to make the world more handsome, Handsome Men’s Skincare is the brainchild of two of the biggest names in the Australian beauty industry, Mark Tucker and Neale Joseph, who recognised a gap in the market for skincare products specifically designed for men.

“We believe when you take care of yourself, it reflects not only in your physical appearance but also in your health and wellbeing,” says Mark Tucker, co-founder of Handsome. “With his healthy lifestyle and inspiring training program, The Robards Method, Tim is the epitome of the ‘Handsome’ man, so we’re delighted to announce this new partnership with him.”

For Tim, teaming up with Handsome was a no-brainer, “I take a lot of care of what goes into my body, and the same rules apply to what I put on my skin,” says Tim. “I love the fact that the Handsome range is made with men in mind, using natural and organic ingredients, and no harsh chemicals.”

As Tim prepares for his wedding to The Bachelor beauty Anna Heinrich, he’s bringing his A-game to his daily grooming routine. “I spend a lot of time outdoors and in the water, so the Handsome Facial Wash and Facial Moisturiser are great for keeping my skin hydrated, and the 2 in 1 Shampoo and Body Wash are the perfect addition to my gym bag,” says Tim.

The Handsome range of Australian skincare products for men is available online and in Priceline stores nationally, with prices starting at $17.95.
