Covered in this report

Mintel research conducted between 21-28 April showed that 82% of German women anticipate spending about the same as they usually would on beauty and toiletries over the next month. After a month at home, sentiments towards spending on some consumer categories like beauty are beginning to normalise. The German government announced on April 15th consideration of a plan to gradually phase society back into public life over the coming months, albeit with restrictions. For the foreseeable future it seems beauty retailers will have to continue to focus their efforts online, guiding consumers through this habit change.
