Golden girl: Kate Ritchie
Ritchie grew up in front of millions as Sally Fletcher on Home and Away. Australia's darling, the Gold Logie winner has found time in her busy schedule to become brand ambassador for the new-look Vaseline Hand and Body range (which hits shelves this month).
When not trying to keep Merrick Watts and Tim Ross in line at an ungodly hour, Ritchie can be found catching up on some much-needed Zzzz's and looking up to a fellow Kate or two...
What's the most interesting or unique beauty product you own?
I have been trying some new mineral make-up products, a label called Inika Mineral Cosmetics. The box says that they aren't tested on animals, they're recycable and vegan... but I didn't intend on eating them anyway!!
The best beauty tip I’ve ever heard is...
Make sure you have plenty of sleep.
Name a worst-ever beauty blunder.
Not being clear with my eyebrow waxing instructions
Who's your beauty icon and why?
Kate Winslet. She's naturally stunning and that is what makes her so appealing. Cate Blanchett always look so healthy and glowing with little or no make-up.
What’s on your bedside table?
My lamp, My iPhone, a vase of white tulips (until the end of the week), a handbag size of Vaseline Dry Skin Conditioning Lotion, my watch, my ring, the earrings I wore today, the earrings I wore yesterday and a half-full glass of water.
What’s the last beauty item you bought?
A new toothbrush, I feel like a new woman!
What’s the most interesting place you’ve travelled to and why?
Greece, not necessarily because of the destination itself, but because I travelled there solo and so personally it was interesting, I learnt a lot about myself.
What must-have beauty product would you not leave home without?
Chanel Concealer #20, you just never know when you'll get a new little friend on your face...
If you were shipwrecked on a desert island what three beauty products would you want with you?
Vita 5 CPR Intensive Masque Hair Conditioner, Tweezerman Tweezers and Vaseline Intensive Care Treatment Hand Cream – I'd need it after all that hunting and gathering!
If you weren't doing this job you'd be...?
Looking younger, exercising more and able to stay up for the late movie!
