Best Beauty Supplies - 2003
With welcoming bubbles emanating from its entrance, Skin Zone fulfills all of our pore-cleansing and leave-in-conditioning needs. Although we have to buy our $500 La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream Time-Correcting Therapy elsewhere, we can always pick up an impressive and unusual array of other skin- and hair-care products here -- enough to satisfy even the most stubborn of toiletry fetishists. What makes Skin Zone extra special is its history: It was once Castro Camera, the camera shop, home, and campaign headquarters of former "Mayor of Castro Street" Harvey Milk. And though some may find it ironic that an epicenter for gay rights is now a beauty supply store, we find it a fitting tribute. There's no better place to get a small slice of San Francisco's political history and test drive the organic hand lotion of your choice. Prices are reasonable, and, best of all, samples are plentiful.
