Everything you can buy at this boutique is created right here in Gowanus. Their passion for the Earth is only rivaled by their passion for quality skincare, and it shows. Shop for facial masks, bath bombs, body scrubs, and more; everything is cruelty-free, water-free, natural, and recyclable. To boot, 10 percent of all profits are donated to local Brooklyn nonprofit organizations.
These small-batch items are handcrafted and offered at a price point that can’t be resisted. Most face-care products — which include scrubs, toners, soap, night cream, and more — are available for well below $20. The bar soaps are not only crazy effective for making your skin glow; many have a fun, bright mix of colors that also makes them lovely statement pieces for your bathroom.
