We sat down with girl boss Priscilla Hajiantoni who founded Australian skincare brand Bangn Body - keep on reading to find out where she saw a gap in the market, her 5 favourite effects of Bangn Body's firming lotion and healthy habits she built into her daily life!
What made you start BANGN BODY?
From a young age I didn’t have the glowing, baby soft skin like my peers, I struggled with bumps, breakouts and pigmentation throughout my teenage years and I couldn’t find anything that really worked. Once I hit my 20s I was even more obsessed with skin and beauty than before. When I spotted only one pimple I would freak out and try everything to make it go away which ended up really dampening my confidence. I then realised the more product I was putting on my skin the worse it became. This was the light bulb moment. I couldn’t find a brand that had multi-purpose products that was suitable for the face and body and filled with natural ingredients that actually worked - so I decided to create my own!
What were the absolute highlights for BANGN BODY since starting the brand?
I am so lucky and grateful to have many milestones within my first year of launching Bangn Body! The big ones are seeing the many customers seeing amazing results with using our tubes of goodness and the positive impact it is making on their lives. The amazing people I get to work with everyday.
What are your 5 favourite effects of BANGN BODY's Firming Lotion?
I love that Bangn Body's Firming Lotion is:
- Natural, Vegan & Cruelty Free
- Results driven
- Australian sourced ingredients & Made
- Simple skincare that’s super effective
What is your daily beauty routine? What are your most favourite beauty products besides BANGN BODY?
I love keeping my skincare routine simple, with a deep cleanse using Tacha cleansing oil before applying Bangn Body.
Vegan, low carb, keto - do you follow a certain diet and which eating habits give you the best glow?
I like to follow a simple, clean and plant-based diet which I helps to keep my skin glowing from the inside out. However I believe everything is ok in moderation and drinking plenty of water is key!
What are 3 healthy habits you have instilled in your daily life?
I drink a peppermint tea every morning to start my day, try to have a minimum of 8 hours of sleep per night and apply Bangn Body's firming lotion every day to help keep my skin hydrated and glowing.
What cannot be missing from your hand luggage?
Bangn Body Lip & Eye Beauty Balm, iPhone, Flower Bomb perfume and a good book.
What’s your top 3 travel destinations in the world - why, and spill the secret on the must-stay & eat in each!
I haven’t travelled a great deal, however I did love Hawaii for the beautiful beaches and people. I have been to Bali many times and love that I am always finding new gems when I’m there such as the Kynd community cafe. I also loved Hong Kong and Singapore for shopping!
