We can’t seem to get enough of the simple yet super effective products coming out of Sweden. It’s about to be your next go-to destination for everything beauty.
Scandinavian culture has taught us some pretty great things (we're looking at you, Hygge and Lagom!). There's also Swedish Death Cleaning, which has made us look at our cleaning technique in a whole new light. Something else our friends in Sweden do incredibly right? Their no-fuss, practical approach to beauty. It works with your body instead of against it. We can’t think of anything better than that. Keep reading for Swedish beauty products worth checking out ASAP.
IsaDora Face Glow Highlighting Wheel
Our favorite affordable Swedish makeup brand has a highlighting wheel that rivals your most expensive one. There are five different shades that you can mix 'n’ match for a dewy glow or you can wear them separately. The shimmery shades aren't just limited to your cheeks; try them out as eyeshadow, too.

L:A Bruket Body Lotion
When you think about surf, sun, and sand, a Scandinavian country doesn’t usually come to mind; however, L:A Bruket draws inspiration from Varberg, Sweden, the coastal community where it’s from. Ingredients like coconut oil and shea butter help heal while protecting the skin from harsh weather. The lotion comes in many different natural scents, including lemongrass and wild rose.

Sachajuan Styling Cream
A styling cream is essential for protecting your hair against heat, as well as adding shine and softness to it (and that's true for every type of hair). Sachajuan’s styling cream is made with algae-based extracts to help add the protein and minerals back into your hair that shampoo tends to wash out. How else do you think the Swede’s get their bouncy hair?

Face Stockholm Veil Lipstick
This deep, vivid red lipstick offers a look that's just a touch vintage. We love that it has Vitamin E oil in it, so your lips won't dry out while you wear it.

Originally created by the Swedish military, this cure-all balm can be used to heal dry lips, blisters, and so much more. Think of it as the heavy duty Swedish cousin of Vaseline. (Just note that this product contains peanut oil, so avoid it if you're allergic to peanuts.)

Estelle & Thild BioCalm Anti-Redness Rescue Serum
If your skin gets easily red and irritated, Estelle & Thild has a line of calming skincare for ultra sensitive skin. We especially love this serum, which has black elderflower and oat extract in it to help reduce redness and restore moisture to the skin without clogging pores. An added plus? It’s fragrance free and made of organic, allergen-free ingredients.

Verso Foaming Cleanser
Verso has a cult following for their simple but effective products that won't dry out your skin. The foaming cleanser is packed with fruit enzymes which help exfoliate the skin, while Vitamin E provides the necessary antioxidants. This is especially great for people with combination skin.
