New Year, A Refreshed You

Whether you’re back to work or back to school, you’re back to reality, so we want to help ease the transition from holidays to life as you settle into your new year routine.

New Do, New You

Haircuts are a New Year tradition, whether it’s a case of your fringe having overgrown or simply a feel-good change, The Barracks is home to seriously talented groomers who know how to make you turn heads for all the right reasons this season. We’re referring to the team at Jessica James salon and their sibling barbershop, Jimmy Rods. Your little ones are also welcomed, they just won’t be able to sit back and appreciate the bar services on offer, so a cookie (if they’re lucky) will have to suffice.

Worry Less, Skin Check-Up More

Next up on our hit list to start the year right is reminding you to get booked in for an annual skin check-up.

It’s no secret Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Finding it early improves the chances of successful treatment. So, checking your skin regularly is crucial to detecting skin cancer early. If you don’t already have a trusted doctor, we highly recommend visiting the experts over at Our GP Medical Centres.

In between annual skincare checkups, be sure to do your own. After all, you know your skin better than anyone, so it’s time to put your inner skin fairy powers to use. For helpful tips about skin checks, see what the Cancer Council has to share.

Sunscreen For You & The Crew

Protecting your complexion from sun damage means investing in the ultimate skincare products so you can relax and reset in the comfort of your own home and beyond.

Even if you’re spending most of your days indoors, if you’re leaving the office to grab lunch or coffee, or sit near a window, we encourage reapplying SPF. Here are our top picks of must-have SPF products to protect the whole family all year round.

The Barracks Pharmacy and Coles are home to Aussie cult-favourite sunscreens, including Cancer Councils SPF50+ Kids and SPF50+ Ultra, both of which have been voted the most trusted sunscreen for six years and running.

An everyday essential worth trying is Natio’s Daily Defence Face Moisturiser SPF50+. If you’re after a tinted option, we love Invisible Zinc Sheer Defence Tinted Moisturiser SPF 50+.

For those who want to remain cool, composed and confidently protected while being active, with the added ease of a spray application, Nivea Sun SPF 50+ Spray Sunscreen Ultra Sport is a must.

Sit Back & Indulge

New Year, means discovering new venues. So what better excuse than to spice up your next bite with a taste of Latin America at Pilgrim by Fogata. You can’t help but unwind at this intimate, friendly, warmly-lit restaurant that embraces a fusion of culinary traditions with a modern twist.

The finest local ingredients are showcased in some seriously delicious dishes that will have you coming back for more with standouts like the fresh Hiramasa Kingfish Ceviche, Chargrilled Calamari, and Brazilian Crab Sliders. And if you really want to indulge, treat yourself to some Oysters, served with your choice of lemon or seasonal Pilgrim style. For those in the mood for a cheeky cocktail, take full advantage of the impressive bar offerings, standout players being the classic Margarita served three and signature Espresso Martini with house-made coffee tequila.
