CULT BUY: The $2 shampoo and conditioner Robyn Lawley buys every time she's in Australia.

This wonderful nugget of beauty wisdom comes courtesy of Mamamia’s shiny new beauty podcast, You BeautyFor this week’s In Her Bag, Leigh Campbell rummaged through Robyn Lawley’s beauty bag to find out what products she loves. 

Robyn Lawley is a model and activist best known for advocating for body diversity in the fashion industry. Most recently, the mum-of-one has created a Change.org petition (which you can sign here) urging people to boycott lingerie giant Victoria’s Secret until they include plus-size models in its annual fashion show. 

Listen to Robyn’s full interview on You Beauty below. You can also subscribe to You Beauty here so you never miss a thing. It’s a blast.

Fact: Robyn Lawley has amazing hair.

Yes, as a supermodel, it’s her job to have amazing hair, but it might surprise you to learn it’s the part of her beauty routine she spends the least amount of money on.

We’re talking $2.

Yep, the mum-of-one who now calls New York home stocks up on a $2 shampoo and conditioner range whenever she’s in Australia.

Well, $3 if it’s not on special. Ugh.

As a fellow supermarket shampoo and conditioner lover, Mamamia’s executive editor and beauty journalist of 15 years Leigh Campbell wasn’t surprised to find the budget brand when she went rummaging through the 29-year-old’s beauty bag on the You Beauty podcast.

She was, however, surprised to find a couple of other el cheapo supermarket buys in there too.

Robyn Lawley’s go-to beauty products.

Macro Organic Coconut Oil, $13.50.

Why she loves it:

"I used to be a bit more high maintenance, but now with a daughter, I'm more slap and go. I just use oils to cleanse because my skin is so dry, I use coconut oil to get my makeup off with a hot, wet flannel. It doesn't dehydrate my skin, I have the driest skin from flying and having people prod me all the time [for work]."

Manicare Exfoliating Gloves, $8.99.

Benefit Brow Blender AC Tool, $35.

MAC Cosmetics Lip Pencil in Spice, $30.

Lash Star Full Control Lash Sculpting Mascara (N/A in Australia).

Milk Highlighter (N/A in Australia).

Why she loves them:

"My go-tos are brows, lips and highlighters... I don't always do foundation because it's quite heavy, I keep it natural and easy. I love the brow brush and Spice, and Milk does the best highlighter."

Why she loves them:

"I used to have an at-home spray tan machine, I have to be tanned for work that much. Recently I was on a shoot with [model] Steph Claire Smith and her tan was amazing, she used the Bondi Sands mousse so I tried it, it's a pretty amazing product. I'm sick of standing awkwardly naked [for professional spray tans], and the mitt is awesome because you can really take your time and rub the product in."

Organic Care Shampoo and Conditioner, $2 each.

Why she loves it:

"This is one product I really love. It's great for flights, I load it up on my skin. It's all-natural as well."

Robyn's Spendy: Facials.

Why she loves them:

"I probably don't get them often enough, when I was younger I'd get the as often as I could. Now, it's really whenever I'm in Australia, every four or five months. I see Melanie Grant."

Robyn's Savey: Raw extra virgin olive oil from your local supermarket/health food store.

Why she loves it:

"I use a heap of it with exfoliating gloves in the shower, to cleanse or remove makeup... and you can find it everywhere yo travel."
