“Through the partnership we will amplify our message of healthy beauty: the idea that if you feel good on the inside, you will feel beautiful on the outside.
“We look forward to meeting and rewarding our customers through the makeovers and giveaways that will form part of the theatre of the national roadshows; and at the end of it all, featuring the winner of this iconic competition in Priceline Pharmacy brand campaigns over the next 12 months.”
