Least favourite thing about working at Chekoh?

Jess: The drive to work but moving closer to Chekoh HQ soon!

Most memorable moment at Chekoh?
Krystal: Honestly, those first round of Wrap samples I received from my very first manufacturer. That’s when it all felt real and when I knew this was going to be big.
Does anyone remember this print?
Jess: I love all of our shoot days but maybe the Mylky Space shoot?
April: The photoshoot days! They’re always super fun, with a touch of slightly stressful.

Tahlia: Always was and always will be my holy grail hair oil, Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine.
How do you cope with stress?
