The RuraList: 5 Boffo Bath And Beauty Products To Try
2. Jane Iredale Mystikol Powdered Eyeliner Fresh off the assembly line of new products from the Great Barrington, Mass.–based Jane Iredale Cosmetics, Mystikol has already gotten raves from Real Simple, Town & Country and O magazines. The fine-tipped brush is built right into the cap. Just dip the brush into the powdery/creamy, water-resistant liner and draw a tight line (cat-eye, too) or smudge it for a smokey eye. We love the packaging and its billing “sexy with staying power” doesn’t hurt, either. $24. 3. Periwinkles Bath Fizzies Periwinkles at Rhinebeck was started by a mother-daughter team who sold their homemade bath and body products at craft fairs. Now they’ve got a shop, but still continue to hand craft a large line of aromatherapy bath treats. The biggest seller: bath fizzies imbued with essential oils that “bubble like an Alka-Seltzer feels,” releasing softness and fragrance. Beach Dunes and Pink Sangria are among the many scents that sound particularly dreamy right about now. $3.75 each. 4. FACE Stockholm Lipsticks How lucky are we that the only two FACE Stockholm retail locations are situated right here in our region? And what was that old saw about buying a new lipstick when you need a pick-me-up? Ebba Long, head of communication at the Hudson store (the other is in Rhinebeck) suggests two new lipstick shades from the new 35 Collection created in celebration of FACE Stockholm’s 35th anniversary. The Honey shade is a cream lipstick; the Sand shade is a matte, and both are available in the stores and online. $22 5. Dr. Hauschka Clarifying Day Oil Winter Sun & Summer Moon in Rhinebeck is the kind of sweet-smelling clothing-jewelry-gifts shop you can get lost in for hours (trust me). But I wasn’t aware until now that there is a certified Dr. Hauschka esthetician on premises. “Of course I love all the Dr. Haushka products,” says Lindsay Morgan, “but the Clarifying Day Oil is one of those magical oils that works for anything.” Although it’s marketed as a daytime treatment for acne and oily skin, Morgan uses it to treat everything from eczema to psoriasis and rosacea. If you’ve never used Dr. Hauschka products before, this is a good one to start with. $45.
