Many of the women you’ll see walking around Rittenhouse Square require a certain beauty quotient that can’t be unearthed at the local drugstore. Enter Bluemercury. As a purveyor of luxury makeup, lotions, and potions, this upscale apothecary stocks all of the top brands, including Bliss, Bumble & Bumble, NARS, and more.
Picture slipping into a luscious Fresh “Sugar” bath, your senses soothed by the scent of the Tocca candles burning all around, followed by a dollop of skin-quenching Laura Mercier Tarte au Citron body lotion.
With expert staff and pricey but decadent spa and beauty treatments including facials, wraps, massage, and waxing, Bluemercury goes the extra mile to give the Rittenhouse elite the full pampering experience.
