Integrity at the core

Honesty is the best policy, or at least that’s what my mother always taught me. It’s kept me in good stead throughout my life, but now it seems this age-old mantra is fast becoming the next wave of corporate policy in a bid to support sustainable product growth.

A feast for the face

It’s nearly always a Monday morning when you find yourself in front of the mirror being greeted by the most unwelcome of sights — a large, red, throbbing pimple, sat right between your eyes. Back in the day the only real option in this scenario was to cake it in flakey make-up and hope no-one […]

Thinking inside the box

Beauty boxes are still big news in the industry. It’s a simple idea: people pay to receive a monthly package which brands pay to fill with samples and so reach new consumers.
