A destination for those who prefer their retail laced with history instead of topped with buttercream frosting, this 171-year-old pharmacy is notable for its selection of hard-to-find beauty products.
I grew up two blocks away from this beauty emporium, which still retains an old-world charm. Bonus: I’ve spotted celebs like Julia Roberts and Kate Moss shopping here! —Eva Chen, beauty director
Sure, there's NARS and Dr. Hauschka but we really love C.O. Bigelow's own line of natural skincare. Two perpetual faves: Mentha Lip Balm and Rose Salve. Affordable enough to invest in several.
good selection of D.L. & Co candles
Get the bigelow t-shirts! They're sooo comfy!
My favorite girly place in NYC. The perfume oils are to die for, and the rose range is incredible.
Our favorite old school pharmacy. Known for their in-house lotions and potions.
Ever wondered what an apothecary looks like? Here's a great example. Love the mix of product. Never seem to be able to leave without at least one NEST Candle and a new bottle of Mentha Shower Gel.
The Bigelow products are the best, cool storefront and history.
Oldest pharmacy in America, in continuous operation since 1838.
The lemon chapstick is unisex.
I get my tooth brushes here. They are swank.
Despite what you've been led to believe, Gillette is not the best a man could get. They have pretty much every Proraso product *cheaper* than Amazon. Definitely coming back.
This historic apothecary is a West Village institution that once filled prescriptions for the likes of John Belushi and Mark Twain.
Love this place! They carry Swedish Sea Salt Soap!
Great local place with a cosmetic and beauty expert on hand!
Their green tea candle is the best, and they'll wrap it -- making it the perfect hostess gift.
Marvelous repertoire of curated toiletries not available anywhere else. I stock up (in bulk) on their Dr Harris Arlington shave cream & Marvis toothpastes. Definitely worth it. Divine.
Best shaving cream on the planet.
Amazing nail polish. Brands are Butter and Deborah Lippmann. Excellent. Intense colors. No chipping. Goodbye OPI
The Bigelow brand candles are amazing. Great scent, only $20!
Mark Twain filled his prescriptions here.
Best moisturizers and hair products. They have great stocking stuffers and gift sets around the holidays.
Bentley of Pharmacies...spend hours here looking at creams, hair clips and brushes

the oribe hairspray is amazing!
Try lemon handwash
You can always count on them to carry science forward beauty products, which is why they carry our gloss, Huge Lips Skinny Hips!!
Outstanding old-school pharmacy and general store of sorts. Great customer service and a huge selection of items including their own house brand Bigelow line of shampoos, lotions, etc. Good stuff.
