Sephora completes acquisition of British etailer Feelunique

LVMH-owned French beauty giant Sephora has completed its acquisition of cosmetics etailer Feelunique from private equity firm Palamon Capital Partners.

The deal reportedly values the UK company at 132 million pounds, though LVMH wouldn’t confirm the price of the acquisition.

Sephora president and CEO Martin Brok said in a statement: “We are delighted to welcome Feelunique teams within the Sephora family. Feelunique is known for their unparalleled customer experience, deep ecommerce expertise and knowledge of the UK consumer. We look forward to learning from each other and write a new chapter together.”

The news comes just days after UK sportswear giant JD Sports announced it would also be stepping into the beauty scene following its acquisition of haircare brand Hairburst for an undisclosed sum.

Founded in 2005, Feelunique sells over 35,000 products from more than 800 brands, shipping over 18,000 products each day to 120 countries, with dedicated websites in the UK, France, Germany, Norway, China, EU and US. In 2020, it said it achieved “record levels of sales and new customer acquisition”.

The company’s CEO Sarah Miles said: “Sephora is an iconic retailer in the Prestige Beauty space in Europe. We are looking forward to working together and leverage our respective strengths to drive the Prestige Beauty segment in the UK.”
