They will soothe your skin and your mind and will make you dream away to your personal oasis.

 

BATH BRUSH BY IRIS HANTVERK

This bath brush sits comfortably in the palm of your hand while you scrub away. Horse hair is an excellent material for bathing brushes due to its soft and pliable feel, yet it's still sturdy and durable with a certain elasticity. Along with a good soap it gives a comfortable lather for perfect cleansing.

 

OASIS

Oasis showcases a stunning selection of baths, spas, retreats, and other relaxing getaways that not only cater to our personal well-being, but also creatively push the frontiers of hospitality, interior design, and architecture. This book brings together a rich assortment of contemporary locations for indulging both our bodies and our minds—places to let go, be pampered, relax, and refocus. Brimming with lavish photographs, Oasis serves as the ultimate guide to addressing and re-imagining our physical and mental need for escape and tranquility. You can purchase it for €39.90 here.

 

BODY LOTION BY L:A BRUKET

L:A Bruket created this calming and balancing body lotion for normal to dry skin with essential oils from sage, rosemary, and lavender that balances and softens the skin. Coconut oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter protect against harsh weather, are moisturizing, and have a calming and healing effect on dry and irritated skin.

 

SOAP ON A ROPE BY IRIS HANTVERK

This creamy soap on a rope by Stockholm-based brand Iris Hantverk is not only convenient but also leaves your skin feeling fresh and calm. It's available for €7.50.

 

FACE BRUSH BY IRIS HANTVERK

TOOTH BRUSH BY IZOLA

These soft toothbrushes are made from sustainable bamboo and nylon bristles. They come in a set of four toothbrushes. They are made by Izola.

 

MARBLE CUP BY MICHAEL VERHEYDEN

This marble cup by Michael Verheyden is versatile and elegant. A perfect item for your bathroom to store toothbrushes, hair bands, hand balm, or other knick-knacks. It's made thanks to skilled craftsmanship and with great attention to quality. It's available for €110.00 at our stores.

 

SCENT CANDLE BY TOM DIXON

Surround yourself with a nice smell and the faint memory of an Indian wedding. Rose petal garlands and the musky smells of the Chinese herbal market are encased in a beautiful brass vessel with a marble lid by Tom Dixon. You can purchase it for €74.90.

 

NAIL POLISH BY USLU AIRLINES

Uslu Airlines is a Berlin-based luxury cosmetics brand created by Turkish makeup artist Feride Uslu and German entrepreneur Jan Mihm. They avoid the five harshest ingredients that are actually legal in nail polish ingredients but can still cause harm to your cuticles. This nude tone is called Muscat seeb. You can purchase it for €19.00 at our Berlin-based stores.

 

WILD CHILD BY P&T

“I got nasty habits; I take tea at three,” Mick Jagger once unabashedly confessed, thereby striking a blow for a more rebellious afternoon delight. And while drinking tea is generally not considered the wildest of pastimes, these somewhat eccentric steeps would like to prove otherwise with their unique aromas. Special processing methods borne from experimentation, dedicated stubbornness or, quite simply, inspired wit have brought forth this range of unconventional flavors. From smoky to seaweedy, or buttery and pan-fried, this inimitable bunch from P&T is sure to excite and amaze even the most adventurous of palates. You can purchase the Wild Child box including 6 different sampler packs for €18.00 at our stores.
