The Brazilian Brands Australians Love

According to the Australian Financial Review, the beauty industry is currently worth $4.2 billion dollars, and this figure is only expected to increase. As well as home-grown make-up and skincare businesses like Aesop, Jurlique and A’Kin, Australia is also importing some of the best beauty from around the world. Whether it’s because we always want to try beauty products that aren’t easily accessible, or that there's something that feels more glamorous and exclusive about products that come from overseas, Australians just can’t get enough of Brazilian beauty brands.

They might be difficult to track down in Australia, but these hard-to-find Brazilian beauty brands have a cult following for a reason. Here, the experts at REVIEWBOX round up the Brazilian beauty brands that deserve a place in your bathroom cabinet and why they’re well worth searching for.

Packaged in 100 percent post-consumer recycled containers and eco-friendly, sugar-cane ethanol plastic, you can expect rich and creamy hand creams, hair masks with murumuru and luxurious shower oils that leave skin with a tropical, nutty scent.
