Radio gaga: Fifi Box
Fifi Box has many strings to her bow: she hosts her own two-hour radio slot, The Fifi Box Show, she tours all over Australia to bring you the weather on Sunrise, she’s the proud owner of Cosmo’s Fun Fearless Female Award and of course, she’s brand ambassador for bh favourite, Dove Therapy.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that this stellar list of achievements could’ve gone to her head but not with our Fifi. We’re pleased to report that she’s just as down to earth and funny as you’d expect…
What's the most interesting or unique beauty product you own?
I've started using a body brush in the shower. I heard that it would revive my skin and stimulate my fat cells. I stimulate them a lot with chocolate so I'm hoping body brushing will stimulate them away. ”¨
The best beauty tip I’ve ever heard is...
Wash your make-up off before going to bed at night. After years of staining my pillowcases black with mascara, I have finally paid heed to this beauty tip and my skin is a lot cleaner and fresher for it.”¨
Name a worst-ever beauty blunder
I once decided to get a last minute spray tan on the day I was attending a wedding. I cried all through the ceremony and wasn't sure why my friends were laughing at me until a saw the white streaks running down my face. I looked like I should have been the clown at a children's party not a wedding.
Who's your beauty icon and why?
Definitely my mum, she doesn't believe me but she gets more attractive every day, I think she looks amazing. She is just naturally gorgeous and beautiful.
What’s on your bedside table?
A bottle of water, lip balm, tweezers, a jar of pistachio nuts, hairbrush and some unopened mail (they look like bills so I'm avoiding them).
What’s the last beauty item you bought?
I bought Dove Protective Tinted Moisturiser SPF15 the other day because even though it's winter I'm starting to look like Casper the friendly ghost's much paler sister.
What’s the most interesting place you’ve traveled to and why?
My trip to South Africa with my mum was an amazing experience, such a beautiful country with inspirational people. I learnt a lot about grace and true beauty from the South African people, it made me feel very guilty for all that I take for granted in my life.
What must-have beauty product would you not leave home without?
I don't think I have ever left home without lip-gloss. I love Lancôme’s Juicy Tubes, they taste so yummy I usually lick it all off and have to re-apply immediately.
If you were shipwrecked on a desert island what three beauty products would you want with you?
Dove Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner, Dove Protective Tinted Moisturiser with SPF 15 and Lucas Papaw Ointment for my lips.
If you weren't doing this job you'd be...
Working in a childcare centre or kindergarten. I love little kids so much, I'm one of those suffocating, doting adults who gives them so much attention I end up annoying them.
