Beauty Flash: Grooming giant Guardian’s latest and largest store, christened Guardian Plus, had officially opened at Takashimaya Shopping Centre, and boasts a number of firsts sure to make any beauty buff excited.

For starters, the store at 8,500 square feet is an expansive wonderland of products and cool features, most notable of which is an interactive section outfitted with tablets and touchscreens. With a few swipes of their fingers, shoppers can pin-point the location of a particular brand or product they’re looking for, as well as research on brands, compare prices and print out their own shopping lists.

Another nifty touch is a Play, Trial & Test area. Here, you’ll get to test-drive products before you commit, get your skin analysed by high-tech gadgets, and consult a power team of nutritionists, health and beauty advisers.

Choose from over 150 skincare brands and 85 haircare labels, some of which include insider favourites like No7, Mark Hill, Skincode and Rodial. Guardian says that a mind-boggling 20,000 health and beauty products will be lining the aisles at Guardian Plus, so grab a girl friend or two and have fun browsing over the weekend!
