This year’s finalists were solely decided on by the surfers themselves who were asked to vote for their favourite wave across each category. The winners were left in the capable hands of an elite panel of big wave experts to ultimately decide who wipes out the competition!

SOCIAL SPY** SUNSENSE BEAUTY BREAKFAST AT PIER

Tuesday 24th July – Sydney’s elite beauty and health media gathered at top stunning eatery, Pier Restaurant in Rose Bay to enjoy an intimate breakfast to launch SunSense’s SunSensibility project.

As the beauty media sat down to enjoy the culinary delights from Pier’s exectuvie chef, Greg Doyle they were treated to a presentation from SunSense’s ambassador, Carrie Bickmore (love her!) and Dr Kerryn Greive PhD (Head of Research and Development, Ego Pharmaceuticals). Why were they there I hear you cry?

To talk more about the SunSense SunSensibility initiative! Which is a community health education project now in its second year, which aims to illustrate the importance or protecting your skin against the sun’s harmful UV rays (and what happens if you don’t!).

Carrie and Kerryn discussed the SunSense UV Photobus, what it is and what it will be doing!

They explained that the mobile skin analysis centre – or SunSense UV Photobus –  will tour the country providing free UV skin analyses and personalised sun protection advice to all Aussies in a bid to education about hidden UV damage and the greater concern of skin cancer.

In addition to the ‘science bit‘ the beauty media were also treating to previews of the product range, which includes sun protection, after sun and a tanning range, all made in Australia for our Australain lifestyle. The SunSense Bronze Shield SPF 30+ is a personal fave of mine!

There will be more about the SunSense UV Photobus Tour to follow nearer the time, however in the meantime, here’s some shots from the event:
