6 Swedish Beauty Brands You Need to Know About
Not just about their meatballs and sleek furniture designs, Sweden is a serious contender in the skin care game now.
Before digging more information about Swedish Beauty, I did not realized how much I have already exposed to Swedish products. These 6 brands that I am going to talk about are what I have attracted to, especially on their brand image and most importantly their packaging, teehee. Well, I have used 4 out of 6 and they are truly a gem.
& Other Stories
I was much in doubt of the quality of the skincare products when & Other Stories has launched its beauty line back in 2013. I guess I have underestimated how good the products are until I have tried them. Well, at least for their hand cream! They are easily absorb and come with pleasant scent than some of other creams I have used before.
What we like best about? It is their pocket friendly price tag. You know where to get your next best gifts, girls.
If you have never heard of this brand before, & Other Stories is a fast-forward fashion brand under H&M group. Though they have not landed in Singapore, but I truly hope H&M is going to bring them in one day.
Estelle & Thild
This organic Swedish brand is staging a global takeover. The eco-certified company relaunched its skin-care offerings to target specific issues, with products like Anti-Redness Rescue Serum and Multi-Nutrient Youth Oil, which is my favourite.
Thanks to the founder Pernilla Rönnberg, who was the CEO of another Nordic beauty brand, reflected on the future of her daughters, Estelle and Mathilde (yes, they influenced the name), and sought to create organic skin-care for the next generation. Estelle & Thild’s main specialty is mixing high-tech, organic formulas, like marine microalgae and oat beta-glucan.
Estelle & Thild is a truly a dedicated beauty brand to the natural skincare word with the use of all organic ingredients. I have sticking with the BIODEFENSE range for a good two weeks and clearly see my skin condition has improved. No more eczema, no sudden breakout with the change of products and smaller pores. What surprised me is that the combination of the Multi-Action Youth Serum and Multi-Nutrient Youth Oil have actually cleared my brown acne much faster than my regular skincare routine. I would highly recommend for those who have pimples acne and patches of minor eczema to try this combination.

Well-known for its fragrances and minimalist chic. Byredo is one of the must-have fragrances for perfume lovers like myself. Not that they gave interesting names to each of their unique fragrance, Byredo is also an interesting innovator.
The new Byredo Kabuki Perfumes give you a contemporary way of applying fragrances. You would never guess a perfume can come in a glossy sleek black tube that comes with a silky, fluffy brush instead of a spritzer. Sweep it gently over your neck and it leaves behind a delicate scent of perfume powder.
Blanche and Rose of No Man’s Land are my favourite scents.
L:A Bruket is a small Swedish skincare company founded by Monica Kylen and her husband. I have only come across this brand when I was in Sweden. Not that their packaging particularly calls out my attention, the wide range of products have amazed me too.
Based in the Swedish west coast, the brand emphasizes on natural, high-quality vegetable ingredients, organic and contains almost no chemicals in their products. Seaweed and salt are mainly used in many of their products where they source them locally. Unlike many of the Swedish brands mentioned, L:A Bruket offers beauty products differentiation that particularly designed for men too.
So best gifts to get for couples?
