About Us

Who We Are

Hey, you found us! Maybe you were searching for the best hyaluronic acid or trying to find tropical nail art inspo for your vacation. Whatever brought you, we’re so glad you’re finally here!

Here at Ambrosae, we couldn’t exist without our community of amazing women. We’re always here for a chat. Whether that’s lighthearted conversations about fashion, beauty, and makeup. Or more serious discussions about equality, wellness, and female health.

Our editorial team has worked for some of the biggest beauty, publishing, and fashion houses across the globe. And with a vast array of backgrounds, upbringings, and personal styles, we reflect the nuanced world we live in.

Our website is like your own personal library to all the questions you have about, well, life. Because, let’s be honest, we’re all trying to work it out!

We hope to be a cozy hangout spot you come back to for tips, tricks, and advice. And our writers? Think of them like your big sisters advising you on which foundation shade suits you best, how to ask for a pay rise, or what to put in your self-care routine.

What We Do

Our team at Ambrosae aren’t just beauty and lifestyle writers. We live and breathe the topics we write about. A new serum’s just touched down at Sephora? We’ve already got the swatches on our hands! The temperature is starting to drop? We’re creating the ultimate capsule wardrobe as we speak. You can count on us for the most transparent reviews and deeply personal stories.

What We Believe In

We believe that beauty, lifestyle, and fashion aren’t just a one-size-fits-all pursuit. We celebrate individuality and encourage our readers to be their own biggest fans. Beauty is more than just finding the best mascara. (Although sometimes the best mascara is what you want, and we’re happy to point you in the right direction.) Beauty is about caring for yourself from the inside out, having confidence in who you are, and living with purpose.

We strive to cover the beauty and fashion industries in a way that’s inclusive of different bodies, cultures, sexuality, and races. One type of beauty is not better than others. When it comes to makeup, haircare, and fashion, wear it because you want to. Not because you feel pressure.

There’s beauty in wearing a red lip because you love it, and it gives you confidence. There is beauty in wearing a black lip because you love it, and it gives you confidence. There’s beauty in never wearing lip color in your life because you love your natural lips and don’t want to cover them up.

Beauty is in the freedom of “you do you.”

Transparency

In a world of #ad posts on Instagram, it can be difficult to know which reviews are genuine and which aren’t. So we give you our full #nofilter opinion. If it’s not the review we’d give our best friend, it’s not getting published.
