GOTCHA4LIFE and Chemist Warehouse Partner Up for Mental Fitness
Tragically, nine Australian’s lose their life to suicide every day. This is the leading cause of death between the ages of 15 – 44. So, for the fifth year running, Chemist Warehouse has teamed up with GOTCHA4LIFE to raise funds and build awareness around mental fitness during the Men’s Health Week running next week (14-21 of June). GOTCHA4LIFE is dedicated to creating a connection between individuals and communities within Australia as a way of combatting poor mental health. You can support them by donating during the checkout process at your local Chemist Warehouse or online.
Hyper Karting – Long Weekend Fun
It doesn’t matter how many times we jump behind the wheel of these carts it never gets old. Hyperkarting features German-made RiMO electric karts that are faster than petrol go-karts and hit their top speed much quicker. We love hitting the track on the weekends and the live stats and lap time display means the goal is right there in front of you at all times. There are even sector breakdowns like a real formula one race and an overboost (DRS) style button for use on straights when you need that extra kick. Situated in Moore Park and boasting a massive speaker setup, the experience is immersive for all ages. Perfect for the long weekend!
Address: Level 5 Car Park, 207 Park Rd S, Moore Park NSW 2021
Hours: Tue – Fri 10am-11pm, Sat 9am-11pm, Sun 9am-9pm

Their three-step skincare is specifically tailored to male skin types and is an all-encompassing, simple skincare range that focuses on cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturising men’s skin with scientifically backed ingredients that can effectively address common male-specific skin issues.
The range is backed by a number of big dogs in the entertainment industry.

Products for men, in particular skincare products for men, have been lacking for so long. To have a reputable company such as Gillette launch SKIN by Gillette for men is truly welcome and needed.”

Tic Tac Launches Little Mo-Mints
Everyone’s favourite small mint, Tic Tac has released a new little mo-mint collection to help Australians create and share small acts of kindness with each other. Each limited-edition mint features a kind word, which Aussies and Kiwis can combine to make messages and share with others. The new initiative comes after research from the Australian Red Cross found 9 in 10 Australians believe there needs to be more kindness spread every day. Other kindness research, conducted by the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation, has outlined that with just one act of kindness you can reduce anxiety and boost both your own and the person you’re assisting’s mood. Maybe this is a sign to bump up your game!
