It's hard to believe we can actually say this, but Amazon Prime Now offers one-hour delivery of beauty products! Before we get you too excited, unfortunately this service is currently US (Chicago)-only and limited to one beauty brand - however, we still feel this news is worth sharing, considering successful pilot programs eventually make their way to us (albeit taking a long time)!

Testimonial
“For me, having more courses such as this available to us [is something that can serve me better]. We do not always get to go to the training seminars and having an avenue such as this is an asset to all of us cosmeticians. I would be happy to do more training. Receiving product to try is also a bonus. On a daily basis, customers always ask which mascara is best, the texture of this cream, the results etc. I cannot afford to purchase everything to try and this is an awesome way for you to increase your sales by allowing us into your world of ‘trying is buying’. Cheers to a great training course.”
