Ulta Lawsuit

Two women have filed lawsuits against the beauty retailer, claiming that the company repackages and resells beauty products after they have been opened and returned.

The newest lawsuit, filed by Meghan Devries in Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois, states that Ulta has a routine practice of repackaging and re-sealing products that have been previously purchased, used and returned by customers. The lawsuit claims that Ulta will then return the products to store shelves for purchase.

The complaint states that the company has a limit on how many returned items can be thrown away.

“Managers at [Ulta] retail stores are given a quota as to the number of returned items that can be deemed to be ‘damaged,'” the lawsuit alleges.

The complaint provides examples from former employees who have posted to Twitter about Ulta’s alleged routine practice of instructing employees to repackage products and return them to shelves for resale.


One woman, who claimed to be a former Ulta employee, posted on Twitter that “whenever a customer would return a product, we were told by managers to repackage/reseal the item and put it back on the shelf.”


A separate lawsuit with the same claims was filed last month by a California woman.

This complaint also sites Twitter user @fantinamxo’s allegations, stating that the Tweets have prompted responses from countless other current and former Ulta employees from all over the country who confirm the practices at the stores where they worked.


Ulta Response: We Do Not Allow The Resale Of Used Products

For its part, Ulta denied the claims made in the lawsuit, saying that it takes the integrity of its products very seriously.

Ulta responded with a statement to ABC News:

“Ulta Beauty’s policies and practices do not allow the resale of used, damaged or expired products. As the nation’s largest beauty retailers, we take protecting the integrity of the products we sell very seriously. Based on our review of these allegations, we are confident that our stores uphold our policies and practices. Assertions to the contrary are inconsistent with what we stand for,” spokesperson Karen May said in the statement.
