We ♡ Greece
New beauty brands entering Copenhagen is always exciting. Especially when it involves Studio Cim Mahony & Barnholdts, who some time ago, created a great deal of hype with their pastel-coloured boar bristle brushes from Mason Pearson that everyone just had to have.
Their latest offering is three aromatic olive oils from the Greek island of Karpathos. Lotte Barnholdt Mahony, co-founder of Barnholdts and Studio Cim Mahony, found them on a family holiday earlier this year.
The Deep Hydrating Glowing Body Oil, a bronze-coloured body oil, is already a strong summer favourite. The aromatic olive oil smells of wild herbs – and ground mica from the Greek mountains provides colour and shimmer. Maybe LAOUTA will give Huile Prodigieuse Gold Dry Oil, Nuxe’s bestseller, a run for its money? It is already said to be a firm favourite among Swedish makeup artists…
The oils can be experienced at I LOVE BEAUTY, Kronprinsessegade 23, 1306 Copenhagen, or purchased online from Barnholdts.com
