Soap scoop

Sabon is a New York beauty emporium with several ‘shabby chic’ branches (this one’s on Prince, in SoHo), where as a prelude to a mooch around you’re encouraged to wash your hands with a salty scrub in a beautiful multi-spigoted ‘font’. (Nice touch, in a grubby city like Manhattan.) A good place to shop for beauty presents that aren’t available in the UK, and we’re pleased (as wannabe-natural beauty babes ourselves) to discover their newest range is Ecocert-certified organic; the ultra-rich $15 foot cream is almost a must-have in a city where you can notch up miles and miles on your feet just getting from A to interesting B.

Sabon, 123 Prince St. @ corner of Wooster St., NY, 10012/212-982-0968
