Amazon Is Here to Teach Us More About Beauty

by Emily Algar


Hide your credit cards, because Amazon is finally on our shores. The retail giant launched in Australia today, and it's kinda the greatest thing to happen to us beauty folk since dry shampoo. Why? It's a treasure trove of unexpected beauty finds. Sure, we've been used to browsing the US site for years, but shipping restrictions and currency conversions have made the experience less than perfect.

Well, cry no more, because now there's a grand selection of beauty goodness right at your finger tips, and we're here to help you on your shopping journey. Keep scrolling for 10 incredible Amazon beauty buys that definitely deserve a spot in your cart. Let the shopping begin! 

Conair True Glow Warm Steam & Cool Mist Facial Sauna ($39)

Love facials but can't afford to drop $200+ weekly? Do yourself a favour and buy a steamer (you'll wonder why you didn't sooner). 

Angel Kiss 0.5 mm Titanium Microneedle Derma Roller ($20)

Derma-rolling (or micro-needling) is designed to create tiny lacerations so that the skin goes into repair mode (but on steroids, and in the best possible way). Expect your skincare to absorb serums more effectively, and your complexion to be plumper and smoother as time passes. 

Fudge Clean Blonde Violet Shampoo ($26)

Also known as the most popular toning shampoo of all time, this purple foaming goodness will have those highlights back to an icy blonde in a pinch. 

Elera 2 Pack Jade Facial Message Roller ($13)

Jade rolling is amazing at kick-starting lymphatic drainage, eliminating puffiness, and improve circulation. Use it after you pat on your serum. 

La Roche-Posay Physiological Micellar Solution ($22)

The French makeup removing water is cult-status for a reason. Buy ten. 

Matcha Wellness Exfoliating Matcha & Himalayan Salt Scrub ($33)

This aptly-priced scrub is packed with matcha and coconut meal for soft, glowing skin. It works a treat on the chest, arms and legs. 

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Sand ($9)

This is the best drugstore concealer, hands down. 'Sand' is the perfect yellow tone to counteract purple under-eye circles. 

Elite 99 Nail Pillow Hand Rest Cushion ($16)

In all honesty, we've never seen anything like this before, but for $16, we're buying one. Finally, a place to rest your fingers while nail polish dries. 

Payot Pate Grise L'Originale ($0)

Got a giant, mountain-sized blinder on your chin? Draw it all out with this infamous paste. Once the whitehead develops, gently extract before dabbing with a gentle spot treatment. 

L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Mascara ($19)

This old-school mascara is a classic. It gives the longest, leanest lashes ever.
