About Lintons

Lintons is a leading beauty brand in East Africa, founded in 2008 by Dr Joyce Gikunda and Edward Gikunda.  Lintons is on a mission to impact the lives of Africans through beauty.  Currently, Lintons executes this mission through these 4 focus areas; 

Lintons Beauty World is a multichannel retail business that has grown to 30 shops in Nairobi, Mombasa & Kampala offering top of the line skincare, colour cosmetics, luxury fragrance and day-spa experience. Through these shops, Lintons not only houses global brands such as Estee Lauder, Clinique, MAC, Clarins, Lancome, Chanel, Dior but also offers a platform to upcoming local brands and manufacturers to reach a fast-growing consumer base.  Customers are increasingly able to access Lintons’ wide range of products via digital channels such as Lintons ECP and Jumia.

Lintons Academy is an industry-focused, TVETA accredited beauty college that upskills aspiring beauty professionals, graduates, professional makeup artists, therapists and discerning customers at its unique training facility in Westlands, Nairobi. The Academy bridges the gap to the industry by facilitating placements & practicums to large retailers and brands.

Lintons Foundation is a non-profit founded on the values of equal access to opportunity in the fast-growing beauty industry.  Through advocacy & partnerships with governments and like-minded social impact organisations such as the Danish Refugee Council, the foundation is able to raise funds, provide scholarships and otherwise unattainable exposure to excluded women and youth in the wider East African region.

Our Purpose 

Lintons envisions a future where Africans are fully awakened to their inner beauty and use this to fearlessly transform the world around them. In this future, “Beauty” is not just a feel-good notion, but a high-impact highly-sought-after career pathway, a value chain uplifting many out of poverty and a catalyst stirring growth of local media, agribusiness, manufacturing & services.

Core Values

Lintons is motivated by 3 core values that are foundational to our culture, brand & business:

  • Passion: we love what we do and put our customers needs first
  • Authenticity: we understand trust is earned by offering only legitimate, non-counterfeit products & services, over decades.
  • Innovation: we continuously learn from our customers and partners, solve problems in new ways

High end quality cosmetic and beauty store

4.83/ 5

If you’ve heard of this cosmetics and beauty store, then you know they are retailers of a variety of high-end skincare, accessories, makeup and designer fragrances. I’ve been to their shop at Garden City Mall to inquire about certain products and I was satisfied with the service and information I got. They are however quite expensive even thought the products are excellent in quality. This is definitely a shop whose products are to be trusted.

Best high-end beauty and skin care retailer

5/ 5

If you’ve ever been to a mall or place that has a Lintons store, you’d know that there’s no way you can just kosa to enter. Their stores are soo inviting from the bold headline, very clean space, bright lighting and the very well stocked shelves. What I love most is their staff are very friendly,professional and helpful esp if it’s something you want to try out be it beauty or skincare. My favorites are the CBD branch at 680 and junction mall. They have a really wide range of products and best part is they are all ORIGINAL. If you are a beginner in skincare I highly recommend you try one of their stores..so they can advise you on what is best for your skin type…& FYI consultation is free. Some time back I bought a product(not knowing it was counterfeit)in a popular store in Nairobi and it really broke me out so bad. If it wasn’t for Susan at Lintons Yaya I would have been scarred for life because it’s all thanks to the regimen she gave me. I love to do pedicures (1800/=) at their Junction branch and the lady who does it is called Lucy. I met her back in 2018 and I’ve never cheated on her 😅 bcz she really knows what she’s doing…I highly recommend go try her. When it comes to fragrances I normally save up so I can buy whenever they have these sales. Stop buying the cheap scents you find all over town….that make you smell like everyone in Nairobi and they don’t actually last on you compared to original scents that last you a long time bcz a little goes a long way. They recently brought a pocket friendly perfume line called Adopt’ from France. A 30ml goes for 1700/= and let me tell you,these tiny things are so powerful..they can easily be mistaken to a designer scent. I’ll let you in on a secret 🤫 go get the Adopt’ scent in Lady glitter….thank me later 😃. The pros is you get samples whenever you buy the high end perfumes or skincare (check out my pics). The con is their products are very expensive with a price range (5k- 30k) but if you follow them on Instagram you’ll get a heads up whenever they have sales. I know every year they have one major sale in July or August where their products are discounted upto 50%🤯. I am hoping that one of these days they have a sale on the Lancôme skincare line bcz I have been eyeing the Advanced Génifique serum(13k). I got a sample and let’s just say the product works like magic
