Merchandising Tips: Getting the Most from your Retail Space

When was the last time you looked at your retail space with a fresh eye? How and where your products are showcased makes a huge difference in whether or not your customers are purchasing take-home products. A few things to critically examine in your retail area:
glominerals lip gloss POP
  • Are your glōtherapeutics products easily visible? They should be positioned where they are impossible to ignore.
  • Are your testers current and clean? Containers should be cleaned on a regular basis.

  • Check out your glōminerals display. Are there missing testers? Are the powders cracked and messy? Displays should tempt customers to try the makeup. They won't be tempted by a display that looks as if hundreds of hands have been handling the makeup: keep it as pristine as possible.

  • Take advantage of our Point of Purchase displays (ex. right: gloGloss POP display): how often do you add a product to your basket because it is displayed near the register? A few more lip glosses or lipsticks every day adds up!

Look around your retail space as if walking inside for the first time. Would you be tempted to buy?

Annoint Yourself

Extremely dry, undernourished skin can be a thing of the past with our naturally derived oil. gloNourishing Oil's unscented, soothing formula contains conditioning and nourishing actives to restore nutrients and hydrate skin, leaving it silky smooth and strengthened.

Recently seen in Cue magazine in the Lusterphile section! What they're saying:

"Applied nightly after cleansing, gloNourishing Oil hydrates with an emollient called squalene, protects against environmental damage with pomegranate and delivers nutrients to the skin with red tea."

A key ingredient in the Nourishing Oil is Squalane.
Found in olives, palm, wheat germ oil and rice bran, squalane is a major component of human skin surface lipids (or oils). Squalane helps to keep our skin soft and healthy and its antioxidant capabilities help to protect from the harsh effects of the environment. Because Squalane is easily absorbed, it penetrates the cell membranes and plays a versatile role as an antioxidant in the cells of the body's organs. It is a great lubricant, emollient and moisturizer, better than mineral oil, and helps guard against UV radiation. Squalane dissolves in the skin lipids, facilitating the permeation of the active ingredients; it also prevents the loss of water from the skin, improving skin appearance and its health.

What to do with Hydration Mist Canister?

If you're anything like me, the gloMoist Hydration mist is a staple of the morning makeup routine, especially in the summer! This morning I am pretty sure I finished off my first container of the year and I got to thinking about some cool ways to reuse the spritzer. I came up with several ideas and I'm wondering if any glo makeup mavens out there have additional ways they reuse them! Here are mine:

--Fill it with water to use as a spritzer at the pool (beach, for you lucky coastal people!).
--Use it as a plant mister.
--Use it for a mister when ironing clothes.
--Fill it with water and keep it in the fridge to cool off the skin after really hot days of yard work.
--Try it out as a travel-size container for: hair spray on-the-go, travel bug spray, travel hair scrunching gel, travel-anything-you-need-a-sprayer-for! Create some cute labels or use stickers so you don't accidentally put hairspray on your arms and legs though!

If you have other ways you've reused this versatile container, share in the comments section!
