It's National Buy Aussie Day and that's a perfect excuse to shop if I ever did hear one.

ICYMI today is National Buy Aussie Day. Meaning, we've got a fab excuse to shop some Australian-born brands because we love supporting local, and I personally adore having several online shopping deliveries to fill the void in my life.

To celebrate this momentous day, we thought we'd shortlist some incredible fashion and beauty labels to put on your shopping hit-list for today.

Get in loser, we're going shopping.

Bondi Sands

Where to shop: Chemist Warehouse

Bondi Sands, named after the well-known Sydney beach, was founded in 2012 and continues to be owned and made Down Under.

The Australian heritage is front and centre with this iconic beauty brand. Bondi Sands has been a leader in the tanning and sun-care industry since it launched. Some personal favourites of mine include the Aero Tan, the Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ and the Pure Foaming Water Tan. The brand also recently launched a One Hour Express Face Mist, which is definitely on my to-buy list.


Where to shop: THE ICONIC

This is another household name and a brand that has grown leaps and bounds since its launch. The online store was founded in 2011 as a fashion store but now has grown across multiple categories including beauty, sport, kids and just a few weeks ago dropped its home section with over a hundred new products.

It stocks some top-tier fashion brands including Alias Mae, Poppy Lissiman, Calvin Klein and a helluva lot more.

The Base Collective

Where to shop: THE ICONIC

Launched in Melbourne in 2016, this is a magnesium-based skincare brand with no nasties. The brand's products are formulated and made with natural ingredients and non-toxic components. On top of that, the products are showcased in stylish, low environmental impact packaging, which is obviously a big ol' tick in our books.

If you're unsure where to start with its products, we recommend the Beauty Sleep Spray With Magnesium & Lavender, which not only improves your skin but your sleep too. Win-win.

Face Halo

Where to shop: Adore Beauty

Another more recent launch is Australian beauty brand, Face Halo. Face Halo was founded back in 2017 and launched in partnership with Aussie influencer Chloe Morello. The Face Halo provides an easy, environmentally friendly and most importantly, quick way, to remove your makeup. Simply add water to the halo and wipe away your makeup.

The brand has added a number of new products to its collection including the new Glow range, which consists of 3 unique pads to remove, cleanse and exfoliate.

Poppy Lissiman

Where to shop: THE ICONIC & Poppy Lissiman website

Poppy Lissiman is an Australian designer who started her label in 2008 and relaunched exclusively as an accessories brand in 2014. Poppy Lissiman as a brand has a choke-hold on 20-something women with her pieces being a must-have in your wardrobe.
