Nowadays, some cosmetics stores and cosmetics counters have quietly "transformed", no longer simply selling cosmetics stores, but began to provide customers with beauty care services. Just buy in-store products and you can enjoy multiple treatments for free. The reporter recently visited a number of cosmetics shops in Quanzhou and found that the sanitary conditions of these shops providing beauty services are worrying. The industry and commerce department said that cosmetics stores with a "retail" business scope are not allowed to provide beauty services.

Survey: Cosmetic shops become beauty salons to buy products for free beauty care

In a cosmetics store in a shopping mall in Licheng District, the reporter saw a simple washstand and leather chair in a corner, a beauty instrument aside, and a notice of member service upgrade on the washstand. However, the beds, disinfection equipment and cleaning conditions used in regular beauty salons are not available in the shops.

According to the contents of the notice, the reporter learned that the nursing content includes deep cleaning and detoxification, hydrating, facial mask, eye, essence and other beauty services. The above also introduces in detail the service items required for different skin types and the time required for each service. Seeing the reporter check the notice, a shop assistant came forward to sell for the reporter. She said that as long as you buy a corresponding product needed in nursing, you can enjoy the free nursing process within one month, and each nursing time is about half an hour. In addition, she also told reporters that nursing is done in the store. When the reporter took photos of the notice, the clerk stressed that it must be deleted, which is the regulation in the store.

In a cosmetics store in a supermarket in Fengze District, the reporter saw two customers sitting in front of seats similar to barbershops doing beauty treatments. After observation, the reporter found that the store did not even have a simple washstand and needed to go to the toilet of the supermarket to get water. On a shelf behind the clerk, the water in a plastic washbasin was very turbid, but it had not been replaced, and the used towels were soaked in sewage. A shop assistant told reporters that as long as you buy products, you can enjoy free nursing services. The cheapest product is about 500 yuan. On a row of shelves in the cosmetics store, the reporter saw many sets of boxes with customers' names written on them.

Subsequently, the reporter visited a number of shopping malls with cosmetics counters in the urban area, and some counters also provide beauty care services. There are many customers in some popular counters to do beauty care, and two or three tellers are very busy. Some counters not only provide beauty experience in the counter, but also recommend customers to the relevant beauty club.

Industry: Cosmetics Store Launches "Retail Experience" Mode to Increase Sales

An industry insider told reporters that cosmetics stores launched beauty services mainly to sell more products. "The clerk will tell you that they help you with the care and the product absorbs better. Some customers feel that the care products are really not effective when they are used by themselves after they buy them home, and believe that the clerk's so-called professional approach can improve the condition of the skin."

It is understood that this "retail experience" model has become popular in the past year or two. According to industry insiders, in shopping malls in some first-tier cities, some major brand counters have also begun to provide beauty care services, and the expensive ones even cost thousands of yuan each time. For some guests, the provision of beauty services in the store has increased the added value of the products they buy, and the sense of service experience has also increased, so this method is not excluded.

Why don't consumers go to beauty salons to do beauty, but choose such shops? "Beauty salons are expensive, and there are currently cosmetics shops in Quanzhou that provide beauty care services to do care for free, or for a small fee. This is also a helpless move for businesses, with many brands and fierce competition, and it is not easy to increase sales, you have to work hard from the service." Industry insiders frankly said that the so-called "professionalism" of some cosmetics store clerks is actually unreliable, but some customers don't know much about beauty care knowledge and will not question the service of the clerk. "It's a bit like a gray area. These counters and shops have business licenses, but they still can't keep up with the conditions for providing beauty care services."

Department: Cosmetics Store Not "Beauty" Licensed Merchants Suspected of Operating Without a License

The reporter learned from the industry and commerce department that cosmetics retail stores cannot provide beauty care services. After inquiries by the staff of the industrial and commercial department, the several counters and cosmetics stores visited by the reporter only had "retail" in the business scope of the business license, and there was no "beauty".

It is understood that if you want to provide beauty services, in addition to applying for a business license, you also need to obtain a "Public Place Hygiene Permit." Want to obtain the "public health permit", must first have the "beauty" business scope. The staff of the industry and commerce department stated that if they provide beauty care services without obtaining a "Public Place Hygiene Permit", the business has been suspected of operating without a license.

In addition, businesses that provide beauty care services have requirements for sanitary environment, cleaning and disinfection of utensils. For example, towels and other utensils used must be disinfected, and employees must also hold health certificates and training certificates. The industry and commerce department reminds consumers that before purchasing products and experience services, they should check whether the merchants have relevant certificates to avoid harm to the skin.
