It's taboo to judge a book by its cover, but what about a beauty product? We all have our trusty stable of shampoos, body scrubs, and lip balms, but it's nearly impossible to resist a sleek and simple travel-size face oil from Sweden or vintage-inspired mouthwash created for a French King. These eight European beauty products are so nice to look at that you'll think twice before throwing the empties away.
Refresh your mouth with an Italian herbal rinse designed for France's King Louis XV. Gillyflower, cinnamon, ginger, and anise are used to the scent the all-natural (and au naturale) mouthwash.
The minimalist Swedish skincare line's newest release is perfect for travel: It's dispensed in a spray (no mess), comes with three refills (no spoilage), and is made with moisturizing, anti-inflammatory oils (no gross travel skin).
Vintage-style packaging from Italy's iconic soap company (they've been around since 1903) is almost too pretty to part with. The soap with vitamin E works especially well for those with sensitive skin.
