We get it: Stopping by the department store on your way home from work to pick up moisturizer is the convenient solution.

But we live in New York, the city that has the best of absolutely everything.

The next time you’re searching for a new facial serum, look no further than your own backyard. (And by “backyard,” we mean Brooklyn. We know the only thing behind your actual apartment is a patch of cement.)

Treat yourself to seven beauty products made right here in NYC.
