Renowned for her soothing, plant-based facials, Antonia Burrell has been responsible for the porcelain complexions of English Roses for nearly two decades. (Her aromatic Pure Face Lift treatment is even said to cure colds.)
After launching her eponymous holistic skin-care line in 2010, the facialist's famed extract-packed products recently landed stateside. Brooklyn cosmetics boutique Shen Beauty is currently the only U.S. store selling Burrell's antioxidant-rich serums and moisturizers.
Customers are lining up for the Cream Supreme Facial Moisturizer ($115), an olive-and-mango skin quencher that also fights redness; the Natural Glow Cleansing Oil ($102), a bitter-orange-and-tea-tree treatment that gently purifies pores; and the Radiant Light Serum ($95), which reduces dark spots and sun damage with rosewood extract.
What separate Burrell's products from the all-natural pack are their double-duty powers: Each simultaneously combats aging and blemishes (which, owning to air pollution, Burrell insists are more prevalent in 30-plus women than ever).
Naturally, we can't get our fill.
