ABOUT SKIN BOSS
Welcome to Skin Boss Australia. Home of natural Australian owned and made beauty oils for beautifully nourished skin.
Created by husband and wife team Kirsten and Scott Smith, originally to help with Kirsten’s own skin issues, Skin Boss Australia is now helping thousands throughout Australia and New Zealand with their skin care needs.
In 2015, after suffering ongoing vision and balance problems, Kirsten was diagnosed with a rare condition known as IIH – Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension.
Left untreated, Kirsten faced the very real possibility of losing her eye sight.
The solution? A combination of medication and weight loss was prescribed by Kirsten’s neurologist, ophthalmologist and endocrinologist. The daily cocktail of medication Kirsten had to take, together with a weight loss of 28 kilos left Kirsten’s skin severely dehydrated.
Frustrated at not being able to find products capable of adequately hydrating and nourishing her skin, Kirsten decided to create her own.
Armed with a brief of exactly what she wanted in a product, Kirsten asked her husband Scott for blending and production assistance. With nearly 20 years experience creating and blending products for the automotive industry, Scott set about meeting Kirsten’s request – to use his extensive blending knowledge to develop a natural skin care product for her.
One that would nourish and hydrate her skin. Preferably one with a small list of ingredients that belonged on her face and not in a chemistry set.
Get Up and Glow was the result. A luxurious day face oil made from 100% plant oils specifically chosen for their ability to nourish and hydrate the skin.
Sleep On It soon followed. A luxe night oil blend, gently infused with lavender and chamomile essential oils to not only nourish the skin but also relax the mind, while drifting off to sleep.
Kirsten began using both the day and night face oils. After only a few weeks of use, family, friends and members of the Kirsten and co. blogging community began noticing an improvement in her skin and asking what products Kirsten was using.
Kirsten soon realised the face oils she had initially asked her husband to develop for her own skin needs, would also be able to help other women (and men) hydrate and nourish their skin too!
And so, Skin Boss Australia was launched to the public on 7th July 2017.
Drawing on her many years experience as an award-winning blogger/influencer, Kirsten developed and implemented a savvy pre-launch social media campaign which generated a wait list of over 300 Skin Boss customers.
Stock sold out within 24 hours of the Skin Boss Australia online store launching and within a week of operation, the customer reviews began rolling in.
Requests for a body oil quickly followed. Dedicated to helping her community of customers with their skin care needs, Kirsten put plans in place to make a body oil happen.
On December 2 2017, 5 months after Skin Boss Australia’s original range of face oils were released, Skin Boss Body Oils launched.
Featuring three luxurious and innovative natural body oil blends – created by Kirsten’s husband, Scott – Skin Boss Body Oils are the solution to nourishing a dry, dehydrated body.
Kirsten is a former early childhood teacher, turned award-winning fashion and lifestyle blogger/influencer and founder of Skin Boss.
Known for her authentic and relatable approach to life, Kirsten has spent the last six years sharing real life stories and style inspiration with her Kirsten and co. blogging community.
Recognised as a Top 30 Personal and Parenting Blog in Australia in 2014, Kirsten has worked with a variety of brands such as Olympus, Target, Loobies Story, Birdsnest, FRANKiE4 Footwear and Adrift Clothing, sharing their products with her community.
A firm believer in giving back, Kirsten organises and hosts an annual charity event with all proceeds donated to The Pyjama Foundation and enjoys mentoring other women in blogging and business.
Launching Skin Boss Australia has been Kirsten’s most exciting project to date. Kirsten’s blogging and social media experience combined with the knowledge gained by watching the growth of her father’s business, which began in the garage of their family home in 1990, have shaped Kirsten’s core life and business values into what they are today:
When she’s not overseeing the daily operations of Skin Boss, Kirsten loves nothing more than spending time with her husband and their two teenage children.
