Former stylist Jessica Richards and beauty journalist Jules Stringer opened this Cobble Hill jewel—a candy-hued, old-world-style apothecary with modern touches. The space carries an assortment of all-natural and organic products, as well as a handful of high-end products for which Shen has exclusive U.S. distribution (one being top aesthetician Amanda Lacey’s cleansing pomade, $89). There are local treasures, too, including Amanda Walker vegan essential-oil blends ($65) and a line of sulfate-free body washes ($18), lotions ($18) and soaps ($8) in aromas like almond-bergamot and tangerine-spearmint from Brooklyn’s own the Bubble Roome. Cosmetics connoisseurs and dabblers alike can try Becca sheer moisturizing tints ($42) that instantly wake up winter-weary skin, Lipstick Queen lipsticks and glosses ($16–$24) and Piggy Paint nontoxic peel-off nail colors ($9). Or just make your next bubble bath more festive with Feeling Smitten organic, edible-looking cupcake bath bombs ($5–$12).
