There are some people in life who are born to change the game. in 2004, Bianca Kristallis had a clear vision to change gifting into a luxury experience and Pamper Hamper Gifts was born.

The first of its kind in Australia, Pamper Hamper Gifts threw out the traditional cellophane and frilly ribbons to offer the first sleek, sexy and downright luxe gift boxes packed with the most exclusive and sought-after gift items. I met Bianca through a chance phone call back in 2006 and was awed by her tenacity, entrepreneurial spirit and inspiring strength. Clearly I’m not the only one. In 2011, Bianca was selected as a NSW Telstra Women's Business Awards Finalist in the Marie Claire Young Business Women’s Award category and CBA’s 2011 Women In Focus campaign. I have always marvelled at Bianca’s unwavering energy, running a business and raising twins. We caught up to chat about what it takes for her to feel skin fit.

With a gifting empire and twins under 10, Bianca finds balance by staying firm in her routine and ensuring her diet and exercise are a priority. (Image via Pamper Hamper Gifts)

I believe its so important to really listen to your clients. If they have felt heard and respected then they will listen and respect you. I always try to address my clients and staff in a happy, uplifting way. 

My staple beauty items are simple, yet effective. I love Dermalogica Cleansing Gel and Dermalogica Skin Prep Scrub as well as Ella Bache Eye Gel. I keep my complexion clear with Clear Skin Clinic Vitamin C drops. Mac Cosmetics Studio Fix Foundation is my go-to makeup.

For me, being ‘skin fit’ means being yourself and respecting yourself. The way you treat yourself sets the standard for others on how they treat you. Don’t settle for anything other than respect!

If I don’t eat well and get enough rest I tend to have a massive breakout, and usually somewhere unexpected! It usually happens when I have a big event coming up #murphyslaw! Eating well and exercising regularly are a large part of reaching my beauty goals. I truly believe that when you feel healthy, it genuinely shows on your face. 

My advice to others in beauty and in life is to stay true to yourself. Let people see the real, imperfect, flawed, quirky, weird, beautiful and magical person you are and live by the saying;

"Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.” - Oscar Wilde

I believe that good skincare is the foundation of great makeup. To feel confident and happy in your makeup, a good skincare routine is so important.
