After another tough year courtesy of COVID, Christmas can’t come soon enough. Thankfully, things are looking up and opening up around the country and the world; but it’s still been a tough year for small businesses here in Australia. So this holiday season, make sure you support local as much as you can.
The good news is there’s no shortage of incredible homegrown beauty products here in Australia that make the perfect gift. With something for everyone on your Holiday Hit List, here’s our curated guide to the best beauty gifts on a-beauty.
For your Secret Santa
OUR PICK: Slip Nightlife Holiday Bauble
