Top 10 Beauty Products and Toiletries to Buy in Greece
By deTraci Regula, About.com Guide
Greece has a tremendous selection of locally-made inexpensive, high quality toiletries and beauty products made with indigenous ingredients. If you’re traveling with carry-on luggage only, you may want to stock up on these once you arrive in Greece, then pack them and check your luggage on your return trip back from Greece. Most are available at Greek pharmacies and small tourist-oriented markets.
In general, try or smell before you buy when you can. The pretty tourist-packaged items are expensive and often not as good – don’t get stuck with something you won’t use.
This body butter is made with organic olive oil and is irresistible. A yoga teacher turned me on to this brand. I bought a huge jar of it for less than 6 Euro and bought a second one to bring home intact. I’ve also used their foot cream and hand lotion, all with excellent results. Lots of brands sound similar – this one is “HerbOlive” as one word with a leaf design. No website; usually found in small markets.
