Hi! I'm Anastasia, the Founder and Owner of Second Skin.
I started Second Skin in April 2020 after purchasing a skincare product that my skin negatively reacted to. Although I had carefully researched the product, it wasn’t until I had bought it and tried it for myself that I knew it wasn’t for me – which left me with a near-new product that I had no use for and $55 out of pocket.
I realised there are so many reasons you might end up with a product that won’t get used up. Whether it’s because you were gifted a fragrance that isn’t your scent, purchased a foundation that wasn't a colour match or a skincare product that didn’t work for your skin. The reasons are endless, yet there wasn’t a solution in NZ for this. So that’s where Second Skin comes in - to help give the unloved products a chance to be loved by someone else.
To reduce the number of cosmetic products ending up in landfills before their time.
Whether you are selling or shopping with us, you are helping us to achieve just that.
