Her many years in the modelling and TV industries have seen Judd absorb brilliant expert tricks and product recommendations, and these days she regularly documents her favourite makeup finds on social media and her lifestyle website Rebecca Judd Loves.
But there’s one beauty product she steers clear of these days, and her reasoning is oh-so relatable. In an interview with website Beauticate, the 32-year-old says she only wears perfume on special occasions after, well, overdoing it in her uni years.
“I was the Thierry Mugler Angel Fragrance girl all throughout Uni, so I just kind of got over wearing perfume,” she explains.
Ahh, yes. When it comes to perfume, we’ve all been That Girl at one stage. If it wasn’t Angel, it was probably Tommy Girl, or Ralph by Ralph Lauren, or Davidoff Cool Water Woman, or — dare we say it — Marc Jacobs’ Daisy. The good ol’ classics.

For Judd, working at fragrance distributer Trimex also didn’t help matters, either.
“It’s not very easy to stand there for hours on end in clouds of fragrance, breathing it all in, I’m actually really over it,” the TV presenter admits.
“I just have one that I wear now on special occasions, Chloe, that my sister gave to me. But I barely wear it.”
The mum of two — who is also a co-founder of Beauty EDU, a new beauty education initiative — also shared her favourite beauty products.
It turns out Judd’s a big fan of faux tanning. At home, she uses J. Bronze because you can “put one coat on and you’re done”, and EcoTan on her face because “it’s more gradual”. For special events, she calls in Spray Aus — an organic spray tan company that comes to your house and sets up a tent in the shower. (Post continues after gallery.)
