Whilst this new competition may be daunting for existing aestheticians, are there elements of the customer – provider relationship that a high street chain simply can’t match? 

What is Superdrug offering? 

The aesthetics treatments on offer at Superdrug will begin at £99 for a standard Botox treatment for areas such as forehead or crow’s feet. Superdrug is hiring only qualified nurses to carry out the lip filler, anti-wrinkling and Botox treatments, and insists that they are committed to providing the highest standard of service and safety.

Save Face: Jane Iredale Lemongrass Hydration Spray

Hydration sprays are an overlooked beauty staple, we love them but what do they actually do? We recognise that they have an official purpose but interestingly, there are also alternative and creative uses for these beauty products.
