Praga

Praga

The Praga district is loved by both Warsaw residents and tourists.

You just have to visit Praga which is located on the other bank of the Vistula River. No doubt about it. Firstly, because of the climate of prewar Warsaw as this part of the city did not suffer many losses. Secondly, because of its residents and the youngsters who are continually changing the image of the district which has been neglected over the recent years. Your metro stop is Dworzec Wileński and the moment you get there you will see the change. Just stroll the streets and backyards with service points, factories and local bars.

Purite – naturally uncompromising

Purite – naturally uncompromising
Go to

Purite makes only natural cosmetics and has already gathered a devoted group of fans.

The motto on the front door of a shop says: “Yes, we make only natural cosmetics but we make them very well”. In the neighbourhood there are small stores and craftsmen’s workshops. And lots of tourists. Purite couldn’t simply have dreamt of a better place than Grzybowski Square.

It is a story that uncompromising attitude pays off. Sebastian Kubiak and Szymon Kaźmierczak, founders of Purite, have always known what they wanted and they did not give up. Their goal was to manufacture high-quality natural cosmetics, with no artificial additives, in elegant, recyclable packaging, without oil palm, made in Poland.

Their journey started with production of soap. They have successfully convinced me that soap and tonic are enough when it comes to a daily routine. They have also convinced many of their close friends. Sebastian’s mother uses soap and marigold oleum which “cured” her of serious skin problems. Ola and Bogusia who work now in the company they also fell in love with their cosmetics.

“Handmade by DR”, a quality mark placed on labels is a tribute to all specialists from various fields of medicine, herbalism and modern cosmetology. Thanks to them, Purite products are able to fight against plenty of skin problems.

Yes, we make only natural cosmetics but we make them very well.

Szymon and Sebastian live and work in Wrocław. Purite shop is their first flagship store. It is not only a shop where you can buy cosmetics, but also a spa with massages and treatments.

On the first day, fifteen minutes prior to an opening one of their regular customers came in and firmly grasped several types of their cosmetics. Yes, Purite makes only natural cosmetics and has already gathered a devoted group of fans.

Annabelle Minerals – natural cosmetics

Annabelle Minerals – natural cosmetics
Go to

Best selling product? Matte foundation. Owner's choice? Kaolin powder.

We are witnessing a dynamic development of Polish brands and we are continuously trying to share all novelties with you. Annabelle Minerals has been on the market for seven years now and has recently moved into a new place in Mokotowska Street. Inside there is a cloud-shaped swing and a living green wall. The shop is more spacious than the previous one which was located across the street. This seems to be the best measure of success.

Not to mention, the number of customers who not only have been devoted to the mineral cosmetics of Annabelle for many years but also tend to experiment creatively mixing colours, adding powder foundations to creams or body lotions or even making nail polish with the use of colorful eyeshadows.

These natural cosmetics contain only four ingredients. Mica is for illumination, zinc oxide for matting and treatment of minor blemishes, titanium dioxide for good coverage and sun protection, while iron oxides are for the color.

That is why mineral foundations are loose and slightly more difficult to apply. However, with the use of well-designed brushes and other accessories application turns out to be easy.

You can also arrange a free consultation in Mokotowska Street and out of twenty two foundation shades choose the best for your skin tone. You will find here powders, concealers, highlighters, eyeshadows, blushes and oils for makeup removal and skincare.

What is Annabelle’s best selling product? Matte foundation. And the owner’s choice? Kaolin powder which can be used as a base or to finish off your look.

Annabelle was, as the name indicates, founded by Anna. Anna Szczerba. She comes from Bielsko Biała and this is where the cosmetics are manufactured. She studied law in Kraków and for some time she was even active in this field sharing time between her job and passion. She got interested in mineral cosmetics when looking for alternative products for her sensitive skin. She does not have any regrets about her choice of a career path.
