Health and beauty retailer Boots has opened its first ‘Boots Beauty’ concept store at Battersea Power Station, featuring more than 250 curated brands and new industry-leading skin care services.

The opening is part of Boots’ ongoing transformation of its beauty offering, following the revamp of over 170 beauty halls across the UK over the last three years.

The 11,200 square foot store located on Electric Boulevard, Battersea Power Station, showcases “the best of beauty at Boots,” with 250 curated beauty brands across skincare, cosmetics, body care, hair care and fragrance aimed at offering “top-to-toe beauty solutions to suit all budgets”.

The ‘Boots Beauty’ store also includes new brands such as R.E.M Beauty, Kerastase, Shu Uemura and Bubble, which are joining the Boots beauty line-up for the first time in-store and will also launch online at Boots.com.

The concept will also offer free specialist beauty advice, tutorials and demos, including skin scans, scalp analysis and express beauty services. It will also house a private consultation space, where a dermatologist-trained pharmacist will provide one-to-one clinical advice for a variety of conditions, including acne, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.

Additionally, the store will be home to a new team of 35 Boots Beauty Specialists who, for the first time, will provide customers with free Skin Scan services using a NEXA skin imaging tool for in-depth analysis and advice. Another Boots first sees the retailer offering Dermalux LED Light Treatment services, which uses light waves to accelerate natural skin regeneration and repair.
