DIY Beauty Experiences Report Overview

The DIY beauty experiences report gives valuable insights into DIY beauty solutions and their growing importance among consumers coping with the post-pandemic era and the cost-of-living crisis.

Consumers have moved away from a one-size-fits-all mindset and are redefining their beauty needs. Therefore, brands are adopting different DIY approaches to meet the changing consumer preferences. The quest for new concepts and formulations has resulted in the popularity of DIY approaches. The pandemic created a huge opportunity for the health and beauty industry to connect to new customers as indulging in at-home treatments became necessary due to lockdowns. Moreover, increased financial pressure has reduced spending on beauty treatments in salons. Consumers are regulating their spending and are adopting a more minimalistic approach. According to a GlobalData consumer survey, as shown in the figure below, 42% of consumers have cut back their spending on beauty and grooming appointments at a spa/salon as they have already started making changes to their spending.

Control of the process, clarity on ingredients, sustainability benefits, and uniqueness are the factors driving the demand for DIY beauty. While DIY beauty seems like an engaging experience it comes with its challenges and risks for consumers. Lack of knowledge and awareness of ingredients and shorter shelf life of products could inhibit the DIY approach towards beauty products.

Growing awareness of cosmetic waste is making consumers rethink their priorities. Brands need to be mindful of their production methods to minimize waste and be mindful of waste generated through unused beauty products. For instance, Ellure is a start-up that aims to cut waste in the beauty industry by enabling consumers to design their products, which are then produced on demand, thus reducing the waste generated by unused inventory.

At Home

Consumers are reinventing their approach to beauty and self-care. Wellness is now a top priority, DIY is becoming the new norm, and clean ingredients are no longer a nice-to-have, but a must-have. The quest for new concepts and formulations has resulted in the popularity of DIY approaches.

Consumers are also reducing their salon trips and indulging in at-home treatments, thus providing opportunities for brands to reassess their product portfolio to appeal to these consumers. Brands are focusing on creating new products that will deliver salon-quality results at home. For instance, L’Oréal Paris Elvive, a hydrating hair treatment, claims to transform hair in just eight seconds as it is formulated with hyaluronic acid and conditioning agents. The transformation of hair could appeal to consumers who want to have quick hair treatment at home without going to a salon and look for effective ingredients in hair care products for time-saving reasons.


DIY approaches can also exist in-store where consumers can experience products first-hand and feel part of product creation, especially in the case of health and beauty products. The direct-to-consumer (DTC) brands offering product co-creation are adopting a more omnichannel presence to maximize their target audience. Omnichannel retail can aid offline and online retailers in personalizing services, improving their operational efficiencies, and tapping opportunities for cross-channel sales. Therefore, companies are partnering with retail stores with the intent to create DIY counters in-store for a holistic consumer experience. Tira, a new store concept recently launched in India by Reliance Retail showcases shoppable videos, blogs, tutorials, trend-setting tips, personal recommendations, and a virtual try-on feature, having the widest range of color cosmetics for consumers to try on from the comfort of their homes.

Tech Solutions

Major cosmetic brands are leveraging technology to take advantage of consumer wants and expectations and provide a more unique experience. Consumer relationships with brands have moved on from a simple “search and buy” to a more immersive and experiential transaction. While consultations can offer basic personalization, companies are also investing in the development of beauty tech to take it to another level. Also, AI and personalization can help in providing a curated shopper experience that is digital, accessible, and inclusive. For instance, Revieve has created several AI/AR-powered interactive modules as part of its Digital Health-Beauty-Wellness Platform and partners with leading beauty brands and retailers to create personalized product recommendations.

In 2022, Revieve extended its partnership with Shesiedo by launching an AI make-up advisor that will recommend products based on specific consumer needs that they can try before purchasing using true-to-life virtual try-on technology.

Business Intelligence & Marketing Manager, SAL Heavy Lift

“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”

Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk

Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.

Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.

Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods

Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.

I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.

I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.

Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered

“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.

Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”

Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan

GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise.  The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.

I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.

One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
