Too often in the skin care industry what really works is lost in a sea of ‘latest must have ingredients’, overly expensive products, and claims that don’t live up to the hype.

So how do you know what actually works? That my friend, is what Bona Fide Skin Care is all about – real results for real skin…

Advice and Products That Work. Simple.

This website was founded in 2012 to share the knowledge I gained over the years working as a skin care therapist.

And I wanted to share the knowledge and experience on a large scale – one on one in the treatment room wasn’t enough!

In fact, it was frustrating having only a small window of time due to the time restraints of appointments, and it usually involved recommendations for whatever brand the spa or salon stocked…

As it has grown, this site has expanded to include researched articles on all things skin care, expert interviews, guest posts and our own line of products.

All with the aim of being a Number One skin care resource for YOU!

About Me

I’m Katrina Fadda, a qualified Beauty Therapist and owner of Bona Fide Skin Care. (For my American readers, a beauty therapy qualification is similar to an esthetician, cosmetology and therapeutic massage rolled into one – minus the hairdressing!)

I trained in my home country of New Zealand, then spent the next decade working on cruise ships and spas around the world. I’ve worked with many different skin types and issues, brands and products, and continue to enjoy helping as many people as I can with this website!

So thank you for visiting, and I hope to connect with you soon!

All the best,

Katrina Fadda
