Already Feeling Overworked? This Australian Beauty Brand is Just for You
If you’re not familiar with Venustus in Sydney’s Paddington, allow me to intro you. Owner Jeannie Bourke leads a team of passionate therapists who specialise in intuitive in-salon treatments (the four-hand massage = heaven on earth). She also designs an ever-expanding range of products geared towards the needs of herself, her staff and her clients.
The latest range to hit my desk from Venustus, called "Ready, Set, Go", is basically everything your work life has been missing. The collection was intended for women like Bourke who work a lot, to help prevent them from becoming run-down: “These ingredients stop me from getting the odd cold and flu,” she says. In short: It’s beauty for a #girlboss. (Especially if said girl boss is into organic products that actually work.)
The range, which is comprised mainly of body products (there’s a milk, butter, serum and, my favourite, a skin-smoothing polish, $39) along with an essential oil blend, utilises the immune-boosting properties of lemon-scented eucalyptus, lemon, bergamot, pink grapefruit, mandarin and geranium. Bourke credits these ingredients with creating a positive outlook, cleansing away negative energy and helping to shift feelings of pressure. Sounds like a recipe for career success to us. (P.S. They’re pretty great for your skin, too.)
