You would be forgiven if, from reading the title you thought this post was about writing, memories reminiscences or other pen and paper products. Forgiven- but wrong.
In truth Perfect Diary in China is a beauty product.
Not just any beauty product in China- a C Beauty product- or made in China.
C Beauty has been gaining in popularity over the years as Chinese pride and support of local products increases. For a long time, sought after brands in China were of higher quality and prices from countries like France, Japan, and South Korea.
Local brands tended to occupy the lower end of the market.
To learn more about C Beauty in China, please read this Jing Daily piece.
However C Beauty brands began pitching their product as more attuned to local skin conditions.
A ploy that apparently has worked. Especially with the youngest generation of beauty users in China. Which brings us nicely back to Perfect Diary.
A relative new comer to the beauty scene in China, Perfect Diary was founded in Guangzhou by David Huang in 2015. It is certainly a pretentious young brand to be going head to head with the likes of the industry big girls.
But sometimes, audacity pays off.
After showing strong performance and some crafty marketing using the new-ish WeChat mini programs in 2019, Perfect Diary has gone on to be the top seller in the recent 618 shopping Festival in China.
It bills itself as an e-commerce-based cosmetic brand providing easy-to-use cosmetics products for young – 18 to 25 year old – Asian women. Although, judging by their advertising, they are also attracting the attention of young Chinese androgynous males.
