Sephora Is Being Sued for Selling an Eye Serum That Allegedly Burned a Hole in a Someone's Face


Things are changing for beauty retailers, and headlines aren't exactly swaying in their favor. On the heels of Ulta employees publicly claiming they are
trained to repackage and resell used makeup, news broke of Sephora and Peter Thomas
Roth being sued after New York resident Rolando Grullon claimed a popular eye serum burned its
way through his skin, creating a hole that has not healed.

As Law360reports, Grullon says he purchased a Peter Thomas
Roth Laser Free Eye Serum at a New York City Sephora in March. After using the serum three times, he noticed red
bumps begin to form, so he stopped using it.
However, he alleges one bump turned into a hole that has yet to heal.

“The plaintiff suffered a
serious and permanent injury to his face, became sore and disabled, has
suffered great physical and mental pain, anguish and distress,” the complaint reads.
“The companies should have known that the product was defective, but they sold
it nonetheless.”

Grullon now describes the serum as “toxic, noxious and
dangerous,” and asserts that by putting the product on the market, Sephora and
Peter Thomas Roth indicated to consumers that the product was safe. Now pegging charges of malice, oppression and fraud against
Sephora and Peter Thomas Roth, Grullon’s suit is seeking $500,000.
