REAL SKIN CARE OPENS FIRST BOUTIQUE
24/7 access to natural skin care and perfume
Real Skin Care, a leading webshop in high-quality natural (skin) care and perfume, has officially opened the doors of its first physical store. The boutique is located in the heart of Amsterdam, next to De Negen Straatjes, and offers an on-demand service outside regular opening hours that allows for 24/7 appointments. Melanie Oterdoom, founder of Real Skin Care, is at the heart of the beauty concept through her passion for high-quality natural skincare, coupled with dedication to delivering effective products.
Anyone who sets one foot across the threshold of the new store immediately shakes off the hubbub of Amsterdam’s Nine Streets. A serene space presents the full range of products, from facial and hair care to bath salts and perfume. Real Skin Care is distinguished by a very strict selection and testing method. Melanie Oterdoom emphasizes, “We don’t sell anything we don’t fully support. Every product is extensively tested; if it does not work completely or does not smell pleasant, for example, it does not come into our store or webshop.”
Real Skin Care’s mission focuses on fulfilling an ever-increasing need for natural yet affordable luxury products. “Our goal is to be able to offer customers high-quality natural products at a reasonable price. To do this, we also look beyond our own borders, seeking out the best products from all over the world,” adds Melanie.
After years of working as a real estate entrepreneur, Melanie also decided to follow her passion for skin care and perfume which led to the creation of Real Skin Care. Through her previous experiences in TV productions and connections at trade shows, she discovered several effective products not yet available elsewhere. With Real Skin Care, she now also keeps an eye on testing current skin care trends. Vitamin C serums, retinol creams and items such as Jennifer Joan Cleansing Oil and Von Eusersdorff perfume are currently very popular for their good efficacy and quality. Melanie’s personal favorites are the Sleep Tight Face Balm by Amly Botanicals and the L’Objet bath salts Bois Sauvage.
