According to a 2016 study by Procter & Gamble brand Olay, 28% of women in the UK are confused about which skincare products to buy. As a result, personalisation and customisation have never been so important, and brands are developing products and services to cater for this consumer need.
Hi-Mirror is a smart mirror that offers in-depth complexion analysis. It also provides users with a Skin Index Synthesis report that helps them to optimise their beauty routine.
The Kérastase Hair Coach, developed in collaboration with L’Oréal’s Research and Innovation Technology Incubator, is a smart hairbrush that works with users to improve their haircare routine over time.
‘Consumers today want intelligent objects that go beyond basic functions,’ Andrew Edwardson, international axe director at Kérastase, explains to LS:N Global. ‘The Hair Coach essentially delivers a library of personalised content that coaches women on every haircare detail.’
