Sephora, the French multinational retailer of personal care and beauty products, has made a comeback to the UK after an 18-year hiatus.

Key Points: 
  • Sephora, the French multinational retailer of personal care and beauty products, has made a comeback to the UK after an 18-year hiatus.
  • Back in 2005, Sephora decided to close its UK stores due to market challenges and fierce competition from homegrown retailers like Boots and Superdrug.
  • Sephora launched its online store in the UK in 2022 after acquiring Feelunique, a British online retailer.

The power of AI

  • Another factor that may have influenced Sephora’s decision is the growing power of artificial intelligence (AI) in the beauty industry.
  • Sephora has been at the forefront of this trend, leveraging AI to offer personalised skincare routines, virtual makeup try-on, and product recommendations based on individual preferences and skin types.
  • By harnessing the power of AI, Sephora may be able to provide a more engaging and tailored shopping experience to its UK customers.
  • The use of AI in beauty and fashion retail is a growing trend, with many companies recognising its potential to transform the shopping experience.

Back for good?

  • The retailer has been opening new stores in various regions, including China, Russia and the Middle East.
  • This international growth strategy could have given Sephora the confidence and resources to tackle the UK market once again.
  • But its return to the UK market after nearly 20 years is a bold move that reflects the changing dynamics of the beauty industry.
