Feeling overwhelmed by choice when you shop?
More consumers are wanting transparency about the products they are buying.A reason for this is consumers are becoming more aware of the sustainability issues around the product they are buying. This is already happening in America with large retailers choosing to have micro stores and less brands stocked.
Retailer Lemon Laine is known for its wellness and natural beauty products offered in their stores in the US. They offer custom made facial oils that are blended right there and then with the consumer. The company offers a fresh look at what beauty means and makes the shopping experience enjoyable and calm, which is something we can’t wait for. Try our recommended retailers for that feel good, do good shopping experience.
The shopping environment is similar to a bar with the shop being the “barista” to guide the consumer to the right product to them (similar to a barista guiding us to the right cocktail). The experience feels more intimate and for the consumer to be easier to discover and purchase.
