How many times have you ducked into Priceline to pick up some dry shampoo, only to reach the register and realise you've somehow collected a full basket of products? If you're anything like the editors in our office, we're guessing this happens on the regular.
There's something about shelves upon shelves of French pharmacy skincare, beauty basics, cosmetics and haircare that lures us in every time. And before we know it, our innocent dry shampoo expedition has turned into a beauty haul of epic proportions. (Not that we're complaining.)
So what are the products that top the list at Byrdie Australia HQ? We quizzed our editors to find out the items they simply cannot resist. Scroll down to shop 20 editor-approved beauty buys that are frequently purchased by the team at Byrdie Australia.
Look, we'd never say no to a trip to Paris, but thankfully La Roche-Posay is available from Priceline, so it saves us the airfare. At $20, this lipid replenishing cleanser is a non-negotiable.
A soft and smooth cleansing wipe on one side with exfoliating microbeads on the other. The larger size means they're great for wiping off the day, whether you're at your desk or in the back of an Uber.
You'd be hard pressed finding an editor whose handbag or desk was without this skin saviour. The award-winning beauty balm literally fixes everything.
Creating instant root-lift and dishevelled, matte texture to boot, this volume-boosting spray makes cool-girl hair effortless.
No woman should be without this multi-purpose thermal spray. It can be used to set makeup, reduce redness, refresh tired skin or simply as your 3 p.m. desk pick-me-up. And did we mention it feels delicious on the skin?
The beauty basic we've been using since school. Enough said.
Celebrity makeup artist Tobi Henney touts this as the best budget hairspray on the market, and we tend to agree. Loved by multiple editors in the Byrdie Australia office, we're yet to find a better buy.
Yes, another French favourite. We enjoy just about every product from the Nuxe range, and this luxurious honey lip balm is a must-have.
Spritz this organic mist throughout the day to combat the drying effects of office air conditioning.
With the many iterations of micellar water on the market, we still come back to the original.
Spend 10 minutes with this soaking into your strands on Sunday evening and then enjoy a full week of great hair.
If there's one thing our office loves, it's volume. (A quick poll of our editors' go-tos revealed no less than seven hair plumping products!) From dry shampoo to texturising powder, any product that creates Sara Donaldson-worthy hair is a bonafide winner in our books. For instant root lift without the need for backcombing, dust this through your part, flip and shake your way to Insta-worthy tresses.
The quick-drying formula is just one of the reasons why we love this home-grown self tanner.
This self-heating scrub is both invigorating and detoxifying. Or, as our publisher explains, it's "my one true love in life". You heard her.
A beauty editor staple from way back, this pH-balanced cleanser is suitable for all skin types.
The best beauty advice you'll ever receive, no matter your skin type? Wear SPF. Every day. When heading to the beach, this spray wins for its easy application, luxurious texture and divine coconut scent.
When asked what they always pick up at Priceline, our editors listed at least four different brands of dry shampoo. The top pick? This French pharmacy OG.
If life sometimes feels like an endless quest for the perfect pinky-nude hue, consider this your MVP.
The secret to our publisher's flawless at-home manicure? These instant dry drops.
An anti-oxidising, intensely moisturising and antibacterial cleanser designed to balance both your skin and aura. Yum.
