Bar soaps get love from millennials raised on the liquid stuff

“Due to client demand, Rescue Spa, a luxury day spa in Center City, now carries three-dozen bar soaps, up from just six kinds it sold three years ago. Older clients who have used commercial bar soaps for years appreciate the skin-softening benefits of natural soaps, said Kim Zimmerman, Rescue Spa’s e-commerce and marketing director. “And millennials appreciate the eco-conscious packaging, that they’re organic, and Korean beauty products are all the rage,” she said, noting that the best-sellers are natural organic Gounjae soaps selling for $14 to $19 and wrapped in traditional Korean paper called hanji.  And Morihata’s black charcoal soap, $32 for 3.8 ounces, is popular among teenage boys (bought by their mothers) for bacne (acne on the back), she said.”

Their holy grails. We guarantee you’ve never used these products before* — and now you’ll never stop.

“If a makeup rule exists, Garland is backstage breaking it. Lipstick gets smudged. Eyeliner gets blurry. And flowers are more likely to end up on the face than in the hair. But underneath all the creativity, Garland’s real gift is perfecting skin – which is where this roller (that’s it above) comes in. “I plunge it into ice or stick it in the fridge, and then just go up and down on the face,” she says. “It feels like a facial, and it’s a great way to depuff the skin — especially around the eyes. When I’m working on a celebrity or a nervous client, it’s also a great way of making them feel relaxed. “
