This Local Digital Publisher Shares Her Go-To Products for Glowy Summer Skin
There are beauty brands that do social media really well, and then there’s Frank Body. The Australian skincare brand practically made social marketing a thing, having realised early on the power of real-girl beauty recommendations. As the brand's cheeky branding and delicious coffee-based products get better and better, it shows no signs of ditching its relatable approach. Recently, Byrdie Australia's very own publisher Alison Rice took over Frank Body’s Snapchat to celebrate the launch of the new Babe Island Kit. The former beauty editor is a product aficionado, and her go-to picks for glowy summer skin are seriously on point. (Can you tell we share more than a few favourites?)
Keep scrolling to see what they are.
Shop: Frank Body's Babe Island Kit ($40)
One half of Frank Body's newest skin-softening pack, this new body balm smells INCREDIBLE. (Just like a Bounty.) It comes with a pouch of Coconut Coffee Scrub and together, they're dynamite for keeping limbs silky during summer. For me, Rice describes it best: "It's your perfect holiday, getaway, get-me-away-from-the-day [kit]." (And who doesn't want that?) Make like Alison and use it to subtly highlight your cheekbones and collarbones.
Shop: Venustus' Summer Aroma Mist ($59)
Venustus is a major obsession at Byrdie Australia HQ, and Rice isn't immune. Her pick for the sunny season? This "super-beautiful" organic lime, vanilla and spearmint mist, designed to help open the heart and lift the spirit. (According to the organic and vegan beauty brand, being drawn to this particular blend means you're friendly, empathetic and compassionate.)
Shop: It Comsetics' Your Skin But Better CC + Illumination SPF50+ ($58)
If there's one thing all beauty girls love, it's an editor foundation recommendation. This one from It Cosmetics is Rice's daily go-to, which she says stacks up against every other formula she's tried. "I have fallen in love with this CC cream, I've tried every BB cream, every foundation under the sun, and this is the winner." (More proof: It has stellar reviews on Sephora.)
Rice's beauty knowledge doesn't end with glowy summer skin advice—she also has a super-easy trick to achieving effortless cool-girl hair. All you need to recreate it is salt spray and...ears. Peep this Frank Body video for the how-to.
