Debenhams Removes VAT From Almost 200 Cosmetic Products

Debenhams has announced that it is offering customers the chance to save the trouble of travelling outside of the European Union (EU) in order to grab a duty free beauty bargain by taking the VAT off nearly 200 top name cosmetic, skincare and fragrance lines – until 28 July 2010.

Debenhams Removes VAT From Almost 200 Cosmetic Products

The move comes 11 years after duty free laws were changed to exclude EU members, effectively removing duty free from the grasp of the millions of people who holiday in Europe.

Sara Stern, director of Beauty Merchandising at Debenhams, said: “We wanted to give our customers a kick start to their summer, with duty free savings across a range of premium and own buy cosmetics and that’s exactly what we have done.”

With no VAT on certain products, customers will be able to save money when shopping at Debenhams with a 17.5% reduction in the price.

Among the names included in the limited offer are top cosmetic houses like Estee Lauder, Lancome, Clinique, Elizabeth Arden, St Tropez, Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Benefit and Ralph Lauren.

House of Fraser Makes Lancôme Available Online

House of Fraser, premium department store, has announced the introduction of the Lancôme makeup and skincare to its online range.

House of Fraser Makes Lancôme Available Online

The launch of the Lancôme collection through the House of Fraser website increases the groups range of top beauty brands and means that customers can now easily find Lancôme alongside some of the biggest and most exclusive names in women’s makeup and skincare.

Harnessing knowledge from L’Oreal’s haircare technologies and its groundbreaking skincare range (Absolute Precious Cells), Lancôme Advanced Research Laboratories have confirmed a link between lash structure and epidermal stem cells and their role in determining the condition of lashes. At the heart of lash follicles are numerous stem cells, which are essential for hair growth and structure. But the structure and condition of lashes can be affected daily by people’s beauty routines, and this calls for advanced care.

The new Lancôme mascara regenerates lash condition and achieves lash-by-lash volume and length as well as visibly denser lashes. The Hypnôse Precious Cells mascara features a helix shaped brush with two flat sections to capture the formula and bathe lashes; and two ridges for lash fringe definition, magnified volume and lengthening. Lancôme now offers mascara that is capable of protecting the lashes, while offering an astounding makeup result for women across the world.
