Opening on 24 October in Covent Garden, London, the 700-square-foot store dubbed The Great Skin Lab will give consumers the chance to experience a day in the life of their skin through a series of digital 'experience pods'. These will take shoppers through a series of questions on their lifestyle and provide a visualisation of their future skin.

Expert consultants will be on-hand to provide personalised skin consultations and hand out complimentary samples of a custom-fit moisturiser.

The store will also act as a retail outlet for its latest products. While the brand has not revealed a closing date of the store, it has said it will be open for a limited time only.

Janet Saunders, vice president general manager for Clinique, Origins and Darphin Uk and Ireland, said: "This is an extremely exciting time for Clinique, which sees us entering a new wave of digital innovation and customer experience. The Great Skin Lab is Clinique UK’s first ever concept store, and we look forward to welcoming customers to experience Clinique in a completely unique way."
