Priceline combats ageism with new campaign

To encourage a more accurate representation of women, Priceline Pharmacy has recently launched Festival of You, a program which aims to celebrate women of all ages – with Priceline Pharmacy ambassadors, Ita Buttrose, Chrissie Swan, Tanya Hennessy, Sarah Jane Adams and Olivia Rogers, leading the campaign. 

The move follows the revelation that only 12% of women over the age of 40 feel accurately represented in the media and society today. The research, commissioned by Priceline, also found that older women feel like they are treated differently from their younger counterparts, with 75% saying they’ve experienced this in their daily lives.

“There is a contradiction which occurs as women age,” The Indigo Project psychologist, Martha Tsakalos, said. “On one hand, with age comes increased acceptance, confidence and positivity. But what women see day-to-day in the media and advertising doesn’t represent the way they look or feel, leading to feelings of tension and incongruence. The dissonance is quite jarring, many women feeling misunderstood, misrepresented and frustrated by the pressure of dominant media stereotyping – it just does not do justice and reflect who they ARE.”

The innisfree product that sells 13 bottles every minute

Innisfree’s best-selling product, Green Tea Seed Serum, currently sells 13 bottles every minute, thanks to its ultra-hydrating properties.

Packed with amino acids and minerals, this lightweight yet nourishing serum works to replenish the optimal moisture level, wrapping skin in comfort for a smooth, glowing complexion.

After decades of cultivating its organic own green tea field on Jeju Island, today regarded among the best in the world, innisfree spent years researching every possible way green tea could benefit the skin. Methods were then refined to capture each part’s potent essence, from seed to root, to stem to leaf. The research team studied 2,401 green tea varieties, developing ‘Beauty Green Tea’. This beauty ingredient features a deeper and healthier colour. Compared to original green tea, it’s rich with amino acids and has outstanding hydrating abilities.

Weleda partners with Victoria Beckham AW20

As a long-standing fan of Skin Food, Victoria Beckham has chosen once again to partner with Weleda at London Fashion Week, offering models a moment of relaxation backstage.

For #VBAW20, Weleda’s Wellbeing Zone backstage encouraged models to take time out to enjoy a therapeutic hand massage courtesy of Weleda Wellbeing Advisors. With acupressure points all over the hands, the therapeutic effects of this holistic mini massage, which helps relieve tension and promote relaxation, makes it the ultimate express treatment for backstage, calming the mind and soothing the senses.

Weleda’s team used Skin Food Light for its nourishing formula which combines organic sunflower oil with skin-calming extracts of wild pansy, chamomile and calendula. This lotion is inspired by the formula for the original Weleda Skin Food, with the familiar clean, uplifting fragrance, but more suited to on-the-go moisturisation, soaking in quickly to leave skin instantly nourished and smooth without any residue.
