Established in 2014, Glossier has received $87 million in venture funding, enabling it to create a beauty brand popular among women.

Lynx Changes Directions To Focus More On Male Mental Health Without Losing Sense Of Humor

After its previous marketing strategies had linked its brand to “lad culture, sex, and misogyny”, Lynx embraced campaigns that focus on ideals of masculinity that are harmful to male mental health. In January 2016, the male-grooming brand launched its “Find your magic” campaign, which encouraged young men to “embrace their differences.” Lynx and other brands face the risk of unfavorable reaction from consumers, who might see their “brand purpose” efforts as a means to enhance reputation and sell products. According to Lynx global vice president Rik Strubel, part of the brand's more socially conscious efforts is remaining true to its humorous heritage.

Glossier Plans To Create Social-Enabled Online Selling Platform For Own Beauty Products

After receiving an extra $52 million in venture capital funding, beauty brand Glossier plans to create a “social-selling website” for beauty products. According to company founder and CEO Emily Weiss, her company will build a website that combines social media and online shopping, which will allow consumers to get insights and buying tips from other users about beauty products. Weiss said the website will not be a social network that sells advertisements for revenue, but will instead be used by the company to sell its own beauty products. According to Weiss, her company's social commerce strategy aims to address the fact that despite advances in ecommerce and online retail, “the customer experience is pretty broken.”
