Australian model Kate Wasley reveals secret to her flawless skin

An Australian model known for her flawless complexion has revealed the beauty products responsible for her luminous skin.

Kate Wasley, 27, says she swears by a $265 La Mer moisturising cream and two face oils from prescription-based Perth brand, The Secret.

The blonde beauty, who has been featured in the likes of Sports Illustrated, told fans the $220 Day Brightening Elixir and $130 Serum have made the ‘most dramatic difference’ to her skin she has even seen.

‘I’m under no obligation to say this – they’re just really good!’ she wrote on her Instagram story.

Developed by cosmetic doctors Clara Hurst and Deb Cohen-Jones, the pharmaceutical-grade range is made with powerful active ingredients that can cure almost any skin issue from acne to pigmentation.

The duo launched their prescription-only collection after seeing the benefits on their own skin first, eliminating the hassle of seeing a GP and being referred to a specialist.

The line is designed for all skin types and the women insist you don’t need to have ‘problem skin’ to benefit from their ground-breaking products.

‘You don’t have to have bad skin, although we do treat a range of conditions. Only prescription skincare can give you the “secret glow”, it’s not possible without it,’ Dr Hurst previously told Daily Mail Australia.

Both doctors have been using prescription formula skincare for years, Dr Hurst to treat ‘awful’ acne, and Dr Cohen-Joes to treat pigmentation.

But they both admit it is more difficult to access than it should be – and many people are turned away because their doctors don’t see ‘bad skin’ as a medical issue in need of attention.

This means many people cycle through GPs or are sent off to a dermatologist before they can get a prescription.

‘We are different to most doctors because we see bad skin as a condition which needs to be treated – because we know how much it can effect self confidence and even lead to anxiety and depression,’ Dr Deb said.

Aside from making getting the formula easier to get – the women have also made the process of applying it less complicated.

‘We wanted to simplify skincare, for lazy people like us, we don’t have time for four steps, we have kids, businesses and friends to look after.

‘We don’t want to be spending an hour every morning and night on our skincare,’ Dr Clara said.

And it is cheaper than other brands, which are prescribed by a specialist and often shipped from overseas. 

Dr Hurst said the range she used to prescribe cost $1,200 for a three-month cycle, where as The Secret will set you back just $500 for six months.

Because the ingredients are prescription only customers still face a consultation process, but they can do it all online.

‘There is a questionnaire so we can choose the correct product for you and make any necessary changes so it is perfect for you,’ Dr Cohen-Jones said. 

‘Each bottle is handmade for a specific client.’

Patients have shared incredible transformations showing the huge reduction in pigmentation and acne just weeks after they started using the products. 

Each customer’s skin looks significantly brighter in the ‘after’ photos, while many also boast a huge reduction in pigmentation and other ‘obvious issues’. 

‘We don’t just mask conditions, we don’t cover dryness with oils, we treat the conditions and encourage healthy skin to grow, which is the big difference between medical grade skin care and over-the-counter products,’ Dr Hurst said.

The business launched in 2020 and has grown organically from social media and through tow women’s contacts.

The women now have more than 3000 regular customers and ship their products, which are made in Australia, around the world. Each week more than 100 people order their products in a bid to start or continue with their skincare journey.
