If you happen to come here for a short weekend or holiday, here are a few boutiques that I really recommend for some great beauty experiences.
All centrered around the canals, these lovely shops offer unique beauty brands, great customer service, and an amazing atmosphere.

The boutique has a nice and relaxing atmosphere. The founder, Marcel Dukker, is really helpful and very knowledgeable. He will easily guide you during your visit.
Most of the brands are natural.
They offer many free testers clearly displayed and encourage you to try their great variety of products on offer. This really adds to a great beauty and shopping experience!
C. C o s m e t i c and C a r e
The shop design is absolutely lovely and you can easily stroll and "feel" the beauty ambiance. C. cosmetic and care offers exclusive ranges of organic beauty products such as Cosmetic 27, Pure Altitude or Intelligent Nutrients. The founder Caroline van Eeuwijk is also hosting workshops througout the year, so this is a perfect way to get informed and educated.
S k i n Co s m e t i cs
Skins Cosmetics, the beauty concept store, has shops in 10 cities in the Netherlands. I visited the one near the museum quarter which is located in the beautiful building of the former Conservatory of music. This building is home to a luxury five star hotel too. This boutique retails a wide selection of perfurmes, make-up, hair care products and international skincare brands (not exlusively natural). You can find the lovely REN skincare products (yes!) but also some other brands such as Esthelle and Thild or Patyka. It is also a skin clinic where skin treatments are offered.
Have you ever been to Amsterdam? Any shopping preferences? HAPPY SHOPPING everyone!
