How the Channel 7 news anchor built her iconic sunscreen brand after an eye-opening moment at work

Samantha Brett was loving her job as a reporter, covering everything from bushfires to crime scenes for Channel 7’s Sunrise and 7NEWS shows, when a realization hit her.

She spent hours every day in nature with her face completely made up and would never consider wearing sunscreen alongside her make-up.

Samantha recalls that once she realized she was in the sun and not using SPF, she saw colleagues having skin cancer removals and wearing band-aids on their faces.

After I get them Idea for SPF that could be worn with makeup and makeup A product Since this was a mix of suncare and skincare, Samantha got to work.

She collaborated with some of the best makeup artists and skin experts to create it A product This would not produce a white cast under bright studio lights, which would not pill under makeup and, crucially, could be reapplied over makeup.

“Especially in view of the high melanoma rates, I felt that way important and vital product that was lacking in the market,” Samantha tells 7Life.

“I knew I wanted to offer something to women a product It does everything – your moisturizer, your SPF, your foundation and your collagen booster, and I knew if we could pull this off, we’d be on the winning side.”

“I had no idea it was going to start,” says the former reporter.

“But I just knew I had this idea and I wanted to see it through to the end.”
