Beauty to go in Sydney airport

Digital touch screen vending machines offering travel-sized products open down under

Sydney airport has installed what it said is a world-first retail service – digital touch screen vending machines that stock travel-size beauty and grooming products. Designed by Melbourne based washroom vending company Powder Room Interactive Media (PRI Media), the machines were specially designed for washrooms in Sydney Airport’s T1 International and T2 Domestic terminals.

They will stock popular brands, including Nivea, Carefree, Listerine, Dettol, Durex, Herron, Napoleon Perdis, Gucci perfume and D&G cologne, in sizes that meet Customs requirements for liquid allowances. The machines accept credit card payments, including ‘tap and go’ functionality, as well as coin payments.
