Junior Category Manager at Adore Beauty

About me

I am a Junior Category Manager at Adore Beauty, where I look after Skincare and Wellness brands. I have working in buying and retail for 5 years in various types of products; clothing, swimwear, jewelry, but beauty is easily my favourite. 

In recent years I have become very passionate about the ingredients in my beauty products, and have been slowing detoxing all my skincare, haircare, and make up. Working at Adore Beauty has been an amazing way to learn more about Clean Beauty brands. Especially those brands that have beautiful clean ingredients, but also utilise cosmeceutical technology to deliver some real results!

Part of what I love about beauty and skincare is that it can act as a self-care ritual.  Dedicating downtime to focus solely on yourself is great for the mind, body and spirit! Some of my favourite products are ones that make are the ones that make me feel calm, or energised, or down right luxurious, like Sodashi Clay Cleanser with Lime, Mukti Organics Rose Blossom Hydrating Mist, UMA Oils Absolute Anti Aging Body Oil, and Christophe Robin Hydrating Melting Mask with Aloe Vera.
