Beauty Online - UK - January 2016
“The continued use of technology has resulted in 2015 being an innovative year for beauty brands online, with apps and social media initiatives expanding audiences. The importance of video content in the beauty market keeps consumer engagement; tutorials have become invaluable for young women especially. However, the threat of counterfeit products and increasing delivery charges has resulted in a more challenging market for retail and, as a result, the pace of sales has begun to slow.”
– Charlotte Libby, Senior Beauty Analyst
