NEWBEAUTY: G-Beauty Boom

GERMAN BEAUTY:

Liquid Surgery Serum, retails for $1,750, but it is the latest beauty induction that’s part of what can only be described as a “German beauty boom.” “I have been saying for the past few months that German beauty products are slowly taking over,” says Rescue Spa’s Kim Zimmerman. “We’ve been carrying MBR for a bit now and the products are phenomenal—they’re medical-grade, organic and offer truly incredible results.” Zimmerman—she’s probably best known as the world’s de facto P50 expert and a bit of a French skin-care connoisseur—also sings the praises of other German brands. “There’s Dr. Barbara Sturm and, of course, now there’s Augustinus Bader, who is a professor and a leader in epigenetic, anti-aging skin care. Then there is Susanne Kaufmann, who is technically in Austria, but I have to include her because it’s so close and so good! All of the brands are undeniably effective. I can’t think of any other category that’s so trendy in skin care right now.”
