MDC Cosmetic, located in fashionable Prenzlauer Berg, is a beauty store with a difference. Founded by Melanie dal Canton, a former employee of cult Berlin concept store Andreas Murkudis, it promotes a more holistic approach to looking good. Expect to find a careful edit of products from around the world: effective and natural skincare from Aesop, luxurious scented candles from Cire Trudon and haircare from David Mallett, as well as luxurious cashmere hot-water bottle covers and bed socks from Johnstons of Elgin. Inside the minimalist store, which was designed by Gonzalez Haase, visitors will also find a range of beauty treatments on offer and a natural health practitioner who is available for consultations. Service is knowledgeable and reassuringly personal; after one visit, you’ll find it difficult to do your beauty shopping anywhere else.
