What is flying off the virtual shelves at Adore Beauty? Body+Soul investigates.

As much of Australia lives through lockdown, online shopping has been a very fun (albeit costly) activity to keep the days from melding into one big Netflix binge.

With all this time on our hands, we have every opportunity for some little self-care moments (although we’d hope a surprise meeting doesn’t get called mid-way through a WFH sheet mask).

If you’re wondering what your fellow Aussies have been purchasing like crazy during lockdown – and let’s be honest we’re all a little nosy – never fear. Adore Beauty has shared their top trending products that you too might want to add to your list.
