Carrefour raises a few eyebrows

Carrefour raises a few eyebrows

Supermarket chain Carrefour launched a new beauty product line called “Les Cosmétiques Design Paris”.

Why it matters

Carrefour intends to offer “the best of beauty” with products priced at 20% to 35% less than its competitors.
Shoppers are also prompted to use their smartphones to scan discount codes.
Carrefour is up against some stiff competition with well establish brands. Is considerable savings the best strategy for a brand positioning itself against other top-shelf brands?

Nail polish for hair?

London salon Daniel Hersheson has developed a shine product that lasts long after you next wash your hair. The clear serum has been designed to impart an ‘at-home’, salon-quality shine. Apply it after shampooing, leave on for five minutes, then rinse off before applying conditioner. 

The manufacturer equates the product to ‘the equivalent of applying a shiny top coat to the nails’, promising the results should last for up to five washes.
