"Convenient skincare brands for on-the-go millennials"

"I’m not much of a beauty queen. I have friends who have full on morning and night skincare routines to thoroughly scrub off the day’s dirt and refrain from getting wrinkles in the far future. I envy the time they have. I know a bit about the importance of skin and I want to hydrate mine as best as I can through the best of the one million magic potions found in the local drug store. Personally, I’m looking for quick, convenient products that aren’t complex and actually get the job done – sometimes I just give up because I honestly don’t understand what to do with some products, but at the same time I do want to feel fresh (obviously). I decided to try out some of Australia’s best creams, face masks, and cleanses that claim to be efficient (and thank god, they were). Here’s what all the fuss is about:

The Melbourne-based company has some cutting-edge skincare to make a difference for Aussie women. According to Dermalist, the multi-functional products were primarily designed to minimise the time, complexity and costs associated with achieving beautiful skin and delivering real results. Of course, I was intrigued – I’m a busy millennial who doesn’t need to deal with anymore complexity right now.

Out of the products, I was especially drawn to the Ultra Soothing Facial Exfoliant: “a powerful physical, chemical and enzymatic exfoliant that contains an effective cocktail of four AHA ingredients (lactic, glycolic, mandelic and citric acids), pomegranate enzyme, and two sizes of spherical biodegradable beads to gently remove dead skin cells and pollution, and give smooth skin”. Hey, they got me at ‘cocktail’. I tried it out, and it truly felt like a light bead message on my face. I usually am so turned off with exfoliating because it legit hurts sometimes! This one, though, was just heavenly on my cheeks.

A nice added bonus: It’s vegan, cruelty-free, non-toxic, and 90% recyclable packaging!”
