Drunk Elephant has today announced it has cut its prices in the UK with products reduced by up to £21, following backlash.
In a statement released this morning, Space NK revealed it would be ‘adjusting its Drunk Elephant prices accordingly’ as a result of the brand ‘reducing its suggested retail price for the UK market.’ The best bit? Any Space NK customers who have purchased Drunk Elephant products in stores or online using a debit card, credit card or PayPal will be automatically refunded the price difference within 28 days.
Cult Beauty founder Alexia Inge quickly confirmed Cult Beauty would be taking the same action in a comment on a post shared on the Estee Laundry Instagram account.
‘It’s quite a process after three weeks of sales so please bear with us. We will make sure everyone is refunded the difference in the next month. I’m really glad Drunk Elephant decided to do this. It’s the right thing to do to give us Brits price parity with the rest of the world,’ Inge explained.
So how do the new prices compare? Previously, they coincided with the US figures so a product sold for $80 came in at £80 here – a hefty increase when you consider the exchange rate.
Now, the iconic Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil 30ml is retailing for £61 instead of £72. The T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum 50ml has been reduced by a whopping £21 while the popular C-Firma Day Serum has been cut by £13. Yet to trial the cult brand? Check out The Littles kit, housing mini versions of the best-sellers, that’s £71 instead of £90.
Hello happy skin AND happier bank balance.
