Jennifer Goldstein discovers a beauty smorgasbord in Sweden

I’ve never understood the beauty world’s obsession with French girls and Parisian pharmacies. For me, it’s always been about Sweden: land of firm massages, flawless skin, edgy eyeliner, and minimalist design. And when I visited Stockholm this winter to experience it all in person, the country did not disappoint. ... That mantra—none of the bad stuff—also describes the Swedish brands and products I discovered on my trip: Verso - Travel Kit.

Limited Edition Face & Eye Color CS in Elephanteau (096) by Paul & Joe: Inspiration Board Palm Springs

Grab your sunnies, babes, we are westward ho! The storied playground of movie stars and their studio bosses, this dessert resort outside of L.A. is all about effortless cool. On a recent jaunt, I was enamored by the aesthetic: Think pastel caftans, mid-century modern furniture, crystal glasses tinkling poolside, and palm trees. (What’s not to love?) Non-Southern Californians will find the commute a bit of a stretch, but it’s easy to channel the look from anywhere—just frost your tips (nails and hair), fake a holiday glow, pick up a lemon-yellow clutch, and don’t forget a floppy hat. After all, UV damage is retro, but not so chic. Paul & Joe Limited Edition Face & Eye Color CS in Elephanteau (096).

Monday to Sunday Bamboo Muslins by Aurelia Skincare: The Time-Saving Tool That Actually Improves Your Complexion

Are you a busy person? Of course you are. Almost everybody seems to be working long hours, flitting from one social event to the next, and trying to squeeze in a good—or at least decent—night’s sleep. But when it comes to skincare, rushing has consequences. Go to bed without washing your face, and your pores can clog overnight. Skip exfoliation, and it’s only a matter of time before your complexion starts looking a little dull. Generally speaking, bypassing steps is not a pathway to gorgeous skin. Combining steps, however—now, that’s a spark of genius. That’s why cleansing with a muslin cloth is one of the simplest, smartest shifts you can make in your cleansing routine. When used with a cleanser, the finely woven fabric efficiently lifts up makeup and dirt, but here’s the bonus: It also exfoliates dead skin cells and stimulates the skin’s renewal process, which means you don’t need to exfoliate separately. Bam! Just like that, you’ve earned a few more minutes in your day. I know what you’re thinking: Can’t I just use a washcloth and get the same result? Sorry, but no. The fabric texture is softer, so it doesn’t exfoliate as well. Leave washcloths for the shower, and instead, treat yourself to Aurelia’s muslin cloth. The washable cloths are made of soft, bacteria-fighting organic bamboo, which makes them ideal for people with sensitive or acne-prone skin—or anyone else who wants to shave some time off her routine while still revealing a glowing complexion.

Crealine H2O Ultra-Mild Non-Rinse Face and Eyes Cleanser for Sensitive Skin by Bioderma: The No-Water Face Wash Trend Takes Off

Cleansing micellar waters—applied with cotton pads—have become the stuff of beauty legend. But is it really possible to wash your face without soap?

TWO YEARS AGO, the American beauty blogosphere was abuzz with talk of a pink-capped French import known to its acolytes by its company’s name: Bioderma. Billed as a non-rinse face and eye cleanser, the soap-free, no-water-needed Sensibio H20 had been a staple among the fashion elite for years. With the no-scrubbing, no-splashing fad trickling down to the mainstream, an abundance of froth-free cleansing fluids is now hitting the market.

“There used to be a time when everyone would stock up on it in Paris and bring home huge bottles,” says Romanian model Andreea Diaconu of the Bioderma-inspired boom. Those hoarding measures are becoming less and less necessary thanks to a steady stream of micellar water launches—and a number of new distribution channels. California-based website Beautyhabit.com was one of the first American e-commerce destinations to carry the pharmacie favorite. After launching in 1996 with the aim of making “obscure, luxe, niche” brands available to the masses, it started stocking micellar waters from French brands like Nuxe, Avène and Decléor at the request of its customers. Now Bioderma Crealine H2O Ultra-Mild Non-Rinse Face and Eyes Cleanser for Sensitive Skin “fly off the shelves,” according to Teresa Mitchell, the company’s president and CEO. “People just like French products.”

Regenerating Mask With Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil by Christophe Robin: How Models Get Ready For Fashion Week

For most of us, Fashion Month means checking runway reports and forecasting next season’s trends. But, for these 10 women, it’s four long and busy weeks of castings, catwalks, and coffee. “It’s survival of the fittest...literally,” says model Drake Burnette. To deal with the madness, every model has her own set of backstage survival tactics, which help her get through the shows with her sanity fully intact (and, somehow, without a blemish in sight).

We asked this season’s hottest faces to dish on everything from their backstage besties to their favorite beauty secrets, to their go-to products. Ahead, get the top tips from our favorite showgirls.

What do you use to rejuvenate your hair after a long day of heat-styling? “I use hair masks. I have one that I love from Christophe Robin (Regenerating Mask With Rare Prickly Pear Seed Oil), but if I’m in a hotel and am desperate, sometimes I’ll just use olive oil. It really does the trick.

Le Soft Perfume by Sabe Masson: The Newest Trend in Perfumes Is…10 ways to try your fave scent in solid form.

While we’re believers that most beauty rules are meant to be broken, this mantra does not apply to spraying fragrance in public, which is generally frowned upon by, well, by everyone. There’s always a chance that the fragrant mist will settle on someone who doesn’t share your love of oud. For those midday refreshers or pre-party pick-me-ups, we put forth the solid scent for your consideration. They’re the ultimate in discreet fragrance application, and unlike rollerballs, these wax-based offerings—neither liquid nor gel—don’t need to be crammed into a clear pouch for TSA approval. In other words, they’re perfect for a quick winter getaway and a month-long parade of fashion shows.

Sabé Masson Paris Le Soft Perfume
Consider these adorable, all-natural scented sticks a twofer. Not only do they smell incredible, but with a base of shea butter, tamanu oil, mango butter, or tiare flower, they also work wonders as a skin-healing balm.

The inspiration: Hanalei, Hawaii

This blissful scent almost perfectly re-creates the smell of a Kauai beach. The island state’s abundance of fragrant flowers is represented by a trio of lilies, which mingle with notes of ocean salt and black coconut.

Serums by KYPRIS: The Beauty Oil Retailers Can’t Keep On Their Shelves

Originally launched in 2012 in the integrative-medicine market, the line was then re-developed and quietly premiered as a luxury beauty collection last summer. Its current portfolio boasts three beauty elixirs — active, essential-oil blends with formulas for healing, moisturizing, and brightening — plus three serums for clarity, radiance, and smoothing. Kypris just started rolling out to high-end retailers: Beautyhabit announced the line to its customers just last week, and a rep says it’s been very well-received.



That might be a bit of an understatement: From what we’ve heard, it's doing gangbusters. It’s easy to see why. Beautiful packaging, top-quality organic ingredients, and dreamy formulations make this one of those rare brands that walks the fine line of organic, luxurious, and efficacious. All of those reasons have gotten people spreading the word about this under-the-radar gem.

Carnelian Body Oil by ISUN

So this oil... it’s at once familiar and exciting. The gourmand in me loves the vanilla and citrus notes, but it’s not too sweet or pedestrian. Ginger and cardamom gives it an earthy, middle-eastern heft, while powdery and feminine ylang ylang diffuses the incensey-ness. The oil is a blend of apricot oil and sesame oil, so it dries fairly quickly, but leaves the skin feeling nourished throughout the day. I don’t do chakras, crystals or anything along those lines, but I love that there’s a carnelian stone in the oil. Not that I think it’s going to give me any sort of protection, but because Isun is that detailed and thoughtful of a company.

Jeunesse by i Profumi di Firenze: New Perfume Review: I Profumi di Firenze Jeunesse – French Impressionism

In November 2014, Giovanni di Massimo composed Jeunesse, (translated from French it means Girlhood) a white floral with just enough lavender and musk.... It begins with a very floral lily of the valley note and a pithy bergamot, which quickly slides into a lavender and gardenia heart.

Each individual note is downy soft, nearly swaddled – rather than sharply etched. It can be compared to French Impressionist Art, at first seemingly ordinary but the scent shifts with light and movement. This is a hallmark of the line – an ethereal gauziness that is instantly calming, sophisticated and playful.

There is an ease and expanse to I Profumi di Firenze Jeunesse that somehow soothes the bones and muscles. And, despite its name and the gauzy demeanor, I find that it could easily be worn by men as well as women. The serenity it imparts is the thing here; not strong statements about gender. By the time your nose has encountered their perfumes, you know you’re in a very private, very welcoming place. The base notes of jasmine and white musk anchor the drydown while still very much keeping the white floral appeal going strong as the perfume winds down.

Le Soft Perfumes by Sabe Masson

Sabe Masson Le Soft Perfumes are just as beautifully packaged and just as convenient to apply. Available at my favorite online beauty retailer, these cuties are naturally composed in the best french perfumeries. They are delicate and sophisticated, sans parabens or alcohol, and ideal for even the most sensitive skins.

There are twelve varieties in three collections making a decision practically impossible. The Shea Butter Collection boasts a natural skin softener perfect for dry spots and has scents like lemon, mandarin, and pink peppercorn. The Tamanu Mango Collection holds anti-inflammatory anti-aging and healing powers and the Tiare Collection includes manoi oil which offers hydration and relief for skin after sun exposure.

If you’re in the market for a new scent, you like to keep things simple and beautiful or if you just don’t love to smell like everyone else, these are a pretty and practical solution. They are so perfectly done and easily infuse the spirit of Paris right into your beauty routine.

Tenera Eau de Parfum by Rouge Bunny Rouge: Fragrance of the Month: Rouge Bunny Rouge and Dolce and Gabbana

This month’s fragrances are a way to put a spin on the whole fresh start crazy that hits around this time of year. For the women it is a new comer and for the fellas it’s one that has been around for a bit, but does not get the spotlight it deserves.

Rouge Bunny Rouge Tenera
If spicy is your fragrance du jour this is perfect. If you want to be spicy, this is a great gateway fragrance for that. It is a light option in the “spice cabinet.” Thyme flower, black pepper and precious wood blend for a warm and intense top scent. It is warmed by the rum, patchouli, vanilla, amber and other notes. They all work together for a great winter fragrance.
