Scandinavia is definitely having a moment. Last season it was Scandinavian fashion, now it’s beauty. Brands such as Verso, Lumene and Tromborg are taking the beauty world by storm, and are definitely worth browsing when visiting the region. Take a look at our guide to discover some of the very best brands.
Estelle & Thild
This clever organic brand recently relaunched its skincare line in order to target specific issues such as ageing and redness. The Swedish company is dedicated to using natural, organic formulas, which are all exceptionally good for the skin.
Don’t let the minimalist packaging fool you – Verso’s formulas are anything but basic. The skincare brand’s higher-end price tag reflects the luxurious ingredients used. We love Verso’s oils, pictured here.
Björk & Berries
Creating scents with names such as Dark Rain and White Forest, Björk & Berries is wonderfully innovative. The Swedish eco-luxury brand carries just a small collection of products from season to season, focusing on quality rather than quantity.
& Other Stories
Best known for its clothing collections, Sweden’s & Other Stories excels in make-up and skincare, too. The range is especially indulgent thanks to its diverse scents. Our favourites include the nail polishes and anything from the Fig Fiction line.
This Finnish brand was founded in the 1940s, and has since grown into one of the most popular Nordic beauty lines. An affordable price tag makes Lumene even more enticing, as does its use of local ingredients such as handpicked Arctic berries.
Danish brand Tromborg offers a great range of all-natural, organic make-up. Our favourite product is the Illuminating Powder, which adds a perfect sheen to skin. We also love the brand’s skincare, as seen here.
