Welcome to The Skin Wardrobe.

The Skin Wardrobe is a curated collection of professional skincare and cosmetic brands, each carefully selected to meet your skin needs.

Your wardrobe is influenced by your ever-changing lifestyle - your skincare needs are too. Changes to your skin as you age, the occasion, season and hormones can make the choice of selecting the right products feel overwhelming.

The Skin Wardrobe makes it simple to select exactly what your skin needs, taking out the guesswork by offering high-quality, results-proven skincare brands.

At The Skin Wardrobe you will never experience a cluttered skin wardrobe, with that uncomfortable feeling of ‘nothing to wear’.

Our mission.

Our mission is to remove the ‘overwhelm’ from your skincare choices. We make getting results simple, by helping you select the best products to address your skin concerns.

We are on a mission to help women feel their most confident and radiant ‘skin’ selves.

Our products.

Our range is carefully selected, based on credibility, quality and results. We source brands worthy of your time and investment.

We are authorised agents of the brands we sell, meaning we guarantee the products you buy are authentic and of the highest quality.

Our ethos.

Our Scandinavian influenced ethos is led by the belief that less is more and quality is King - or Queen! We love design, and appreciate that beautiful products make you feel special.

We aim to cause minimal impact on our environment, from our everyday business actions, through to partnering with suppliers and brands with a conscience.

About Catherine. The woman behind the wardrobe.

Catherine TongCatherine experienced first-hand how advances in skincare and cosmetic products could deliver positive results and in turn have an impact on her own skin confidence.  Her mission is to eliminate women’s skincare overwhelm by offering a range of proven and trusted professional brands to enable women like herself feel confident and excited about their skin and makeup routines, and see great results for themselves. 

After having lived, married and had her first two children in Stockholm, Sweden for over 5 years, Catherine returned to New Zealand with a strong affinity with Scandinavian design, innovation and authenticity in beauty. As a result of a connection with the founder of a professional skincare business in Scandinavia, the concept for The Skin Wardrobe was born.  With the support of her family she took the leap and left her corporate career of over 15 years to pursue this passion.   

In late 2018 Catherine returned to Sweden to bring her business mission to life.  

As a result, The Skin Wardrobe now offers high purpose, science-based Scandinavian brands including MAKETHEMAKE, Skintology Stockholm and MARIA AKERBERG exclusively to New Zealand and Australia.  

Catherine is driven and inspired by women who have a strong voice and wants to support them in their mission though allowing them to feel confident and radiant in their own skin.    

Catherine is married with three children and is based in Auckland, New Zealand (four if you count The Skin Wardrobe!). She is an advocate and volunteer at Dress for Success, New Zealand.
