It’s clear Brittany Hockley is a media powerhouse, the beloved Australian TV personality has carved out an impressive career following her stint on The Bachelor, balancing a successful podcast alongside co-host Laura Byrne, recently co-writing a book and even hosting live events.

Why did you decide to partner with Esmi Skin? What was it about this skincare brand in particular that you connected with?

I love skincare and definitely make it a priority in my life. I’ve always spent a lot of time, energy and money trying out new skincare and treatments to find out what works for me. I loved esmi as soon as I tried it. The 24k Gold Nourishing Oil and the Booster Masks have both been staples in my life for a long time. My skin genuinely feels hydrated and healthy when I use esmi.

Has skincare always been an essential part of your life?

Unfortunately, no! When I was younger I spent far too many hours in the sun, surfing, sun baking, playing sports, and I never really thought much about skincare. It was only in my late 20s I started to pay more attention to my skin and the possible damage I had done. 

What does self-care look like for you?

Carving out some time away from work. Having your own business can mean work hours don’t exist! So a movie, a glass of wine, an esmi face mask and no phone!

Do you have a daily routine?

Not really! My work is too chaotic to have a routine, haha. But I don’t mind that! Let’s call it organised chaos. I make sure I exercise every day and have a great coffee every day though! 

Is there any advice you’ve been given recently that stuck with you?

I’ve always lived by the quote “only those who go too far can possibly find out how far one can go” – TS Elliot. Essentially, if you don’t try, you’ll never know. 

(And not knowing and always wondering, sucks)

Are you excited about Matty and Laura’s wedding?

I’m super excited! It’s been a long time coming with those two, they had to cancel and postpone a few times I believe throughout covid lockdowns, so it will be so nice to see them finally tie the knot!

Have you helped with the wedding planning at all?

I helped her find a wedding planner 😂 that’s about it!

Do you think you’ll cry when Laura walks down the aisle?

I think I probably will. I’m a big crier these days, especially when I get to see two people I love celebrate their love. I love love, it’s a beautiful thing, and knowing one of my closest friends has found her happy ever after warms my soul.
