The high-end skincare market in China is experiencing fiercer competition as more overseas luxury brands enter the scene and major beauty conglomerates intensify their efforts.

After the trend of skincare emphasizing ingredients and efficacy, what can continue to resonate with consumers?

We believe that for Chinese high-end consumers, the significance of skincare extends beyond skin alone and has become an integral part of overall physical and mental wellness.

Following the trend, high-end consumers are now returning to rationality. Their choice of skincare brands no longer solely pursues product ingredients but also represents a concern for lifestyle, well-being, and personal expression. This has become a crucial approach for brands to engage consumers.

Therefore, accurately identifying target consumers and defining a clear brand personality has become even more essential for high-end skincare brands.

Eight Major Characteristics of High-End Skincare Consumers:

1. Mature consumers with accumulated wealth.
2. Significant consumption power and willingness.

3. Once committed, they are unlikely to easily change their minds.
4. Brand recognition and distinctiveness greatly influence purchasing decisions.
5. Sceptical of excessive recommendations, they trust Key Opinion Consumers (KOCs) more.

6. Possess some understanding of the high-end beauty industry and brand research capability.
7. Lack effective channels to learn about brand stories.
8. Increasing awareness among male consumers, with plans to allocate more budget.

Additionally, on Tuesday, August 15th, at 2:30 PM (GMT+8), Luxe.CO Intelligence held an online industry forum titled Observations on High-End Skincare Brands in China.
