London, United Kingdom

At first glance, the landscape of beauty retail in the UK appears incredibly vibrant, with shoppers eagerly exploring novel retailers and innovative concepts. However, beneath the surface, there exist subtle financial and social currents that threaten to impact the spending power and intent of beauty consumers in the upcoming year. In this evolving landscape, it is imperative for both retailers and brands to delve deep into the psyche of their consumers, discern their desires, and proactively anticipate any shifts in their behaviour.

Join Mintel and CEW and a distinguished panel of experts on Wednesday 31st January as we delve into the most recent research illuminating the mindset of the UK beauty buyer. Together, we will explore the driving forces behind their choices, unravel the elements that captivate them, and decipher the strategies that can encourage them not only to make a purchase but to become loyal patrons of your brand, now and in the future.
