At 8am on Wednesday 12th November, My Buddy Torah and I ventured into the city for a bit of a special girls day out. We haven’t got to hang out like this in the past so it is so nice to have a close friend to enjoy the fun stuff with. Our first stop was The beautiful Botanical Gardens where Aussie twin sisters Zoe and Kim launched their new Australian skincare brand, Dr Roebuck’s. Myself and forty healthy on the inside and out guests gathered at The Boy Charlton Pool for a morning of yoga followed by breakfast as part of their ‘Yoga For Your Skin’ launch. Celebrating their launch into Priceline Pharmacy across Australia, the event was timed perfectly as a great antidote to the silly season coming into summer.
‘Dr Roebuck’s “Yoga For Your Skin” refers to the feeling individuals have, similar to that of a healthy workout after they use Dr Roebuck’s. Our philosophy is to look after yourself “inside and out” to have great looking skin.’ Says Zoe Roebuck, co-founder of Dr Roebuck’s.
We experienced a full yoga session led by Power Living yogi Mandy Kopcho outside in natural surroundings, overlooking Sydney Harbour. The Australian family owned skincare range began over 30 years ago when Zoe and Kim’s parents created the formula for their children’s sensitive skin. The Aussie twins are growing the family dream, with the product now available in 600 stores globally. Dr Roebuck’s is also the only Australian Skincare brand stocked in Shoppers and Drug Mart Canada.
‘Everyone kept asking us where to buy the products from and we didn’t have enough to sell,’ Says Kim Roebuck. ‘So we decided to make it available to everyone in Australia. Dr Roebuck’s has grown from 20 stores globally to 600 in the last 12 months.’
An all- natural ‘green’ breakfast followed the yoga, where we sipped on green smoothies and C Coconut Water, over a selection of breakfast goodies. As a gift, we were so grateful to receive a goodie bag full of amazing things; including our very own lululemon athletica yoga mat, yoga bag, Dr Roebuck’s towel and the skincare range to try at home.
It truly was such a beautiful morning to be part of, I am getting a little obsessed with yoga again and even more obsessed with the gorgeous skincare range!!!
