This week, we introduce you to Natalie, one of our amazing Brand Managers here at bb. Read on for her top beauty picks and see if you share any favourites!
Hi, Im Natalie, and I'm one of the Brand Managers working here at bellabox! I'm actaully based in Sydney, not Melbourne like the other bellabox Australia girls. I have the fun job of looking for all the new and exciting brands that want to come on board and be a part of bellabox, along with tracking down your most loved and favourite brands who have been around for decades!
Having worked in the cosmetics industry for almost a decade (makes me feel so old!!) I left my full time job at LVMH as a Marketing Manager for Givenchy to have my little girl Gabriela. Whilst on maternity leave, I came across the fantastic opportunity to work for bellabox - and I haven't looked back since! My little girl has just turned one, and I love the fact that I can work and spend time with her - a good work/life balance is really important for myself and my family.
Working at bellabox has really opened my eyes to the entire workings of the beauty industry - previously I thought the whole beauty world only existed in Myer and David Jones! How wrong I was! I have come across so many niche fragrances, makeup and skincare brands now, that don't have the money or time to invest into big department stores or pharmacies, and the part I love about my job here at bellabox is to help these small brands find a voice in the ever cluttered market. Seeing the feedback from you - our subscribers - is what makes it all so worthwhile!
Here are some of my current beauty obsessions:
Givenchy skincare - having worked for over 6 years at Givenchy and launching the beauty side of the brand here in Australia, I absolutely fell in love with the skincare - my favourite being the Hydrasparkling Range for my night skincare routine.
I also love my Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes Mascara!
And now for my fave bb products!
1. One Skin System Daily Hydrate - this was my first brand that I signed up, and I'm totally hooked on this for my morning routine!
2. Fan di Fendi - a new brand partner; such an indulgent fragrance and the bottle is to die for! I absolutely love the FF Logo! What else will they think of?
3. U Little Beauty Natural Repair Hair Masque - I love leaving this on my hair on a lazy Sunday - which are few and far between with the little one under my feet! But when I get the chance to do it, I know my hair thanks me for it!
There you have it bellas! Now you know another one of the lovely faces that sources some of the fantastic products for your bellaboxes each month! Do you love any of Natalie's favourite products too? Thanks for letting us into your beauty world Natalie! Stay tuned for next month's Meet the Team with our Managing Editor Lauren!
