While recently trekking to the back corner of Bloomie?s on Michigan Avenue to score a new pair of Spanx tights, we beheld the beauty department we once knew so well and thought: Whoa, who moved the Clinique counter?
There?s been a major renovation of the cosmetics floor, and our favorite addition is SpaceNK Apothecary, a shop-within-a-shop that collects the best finds of British beauty guru Nicky Kinnaird. For 20 years she?s been her own beauty guinea pig, obsessively trying products to find what works.
Kinnaird?s picks from around the world are exactly what we?d like to give--or get--in a stocking this season. Our must-haves:
From the UK The silky cocoa-butter-enriched face cleanser and exfoliating muslin washcloths ($50 to $135) from famed London facialist Eve Lom are our new secret to glowing winter skin.
From Hollywood Philip B.?s Russian Amber Imperial Shampoo ($50 to $140) restores moisture to dry, staticky hair and is literally the best thing we?ve ever smelled.
From New York Big-deal stylists use this superpowerful blow dryer ($160) from professional line Sedu because it dries hair insanely fast.
From Fiji Mixed with orange juice or water, this organic ginger powder ($24) from the tropical paradise of Wakaya will set your digestion straight after a huge family meal.
