From ugly chic to baby-soft cheeks.

In news we couldn’t have foreseen, the brand that birthed the humble dad sandal is making its mark on the beauty industry.

Yep, since launching its first wave of beauty products last year, Birkenstock’s range now spans the lot: a facial moisturiser, body scrub, and a collection of moisturisers and oils to lather on your feet before you slide ’em into your Birks’.  Unsurprisingly, the ingredient list includes cork oak extract, which works to provide the skin with effective anti-ageing properties (besides cushioning your toes at the BBQ).

An expansion of the range is expected sometime this year, with the introduction of a collection titled Natural Man, which should encompass all the dude essentials.

Throughout the existing range, the brand offers vegan, cruelty-free and entirely natural products. There’s even a sustainable refill system in place, meaning that after a product is empty, you can purchase a refill version to pop inside the original bottle.

Only time will tell if Birkenstock beauty will ever hit the shelves in Aus. In the meantime, you’ll have to stick to your slip-ons.
