This Works: Natural Skincare

There’s an amazingly well curated cosmetic boutique in Bal Harbour call Gee Beauty (very much like Space NK). I stopped in when I was in Miami a few months ago and they instantly won high credibility points for stocking a slew of my favorite brands including Clarisonic, Rodial, Rodin, Dr. Brandt, Serge Lutens – truly the best of the best. Better yet, I discovered a few products and brands that I was previously unfamiliar with, the most notable of which was This Works. The natural line uses 100% natural fragrance (and from what I can tell they all smell great), they’re based in the UK, and they work with British farmers to source their natural ingredients. I’m pretty surprised I haven’t seen the line around NYC yet because it’s comprehensive, has awesome packaging, and the prices aren’t bad. I bought this candle (heaven!), this hand cream (fast-absorbing, long-lasting, non-greasy), and this Advil alternative šŸ™‚ Check-out all the products here!

  1. What a great name (This Works). I like the shea butter from E Burnham. The body lotion is great too, especially in summer. The shea butter is better for the real dry skin of winter.

  2. Great line of products. I a bummer for natural lines because I don’t have to worry on how it will work on me. I’m interested on grabbing one.
