True beauty junkies value quality over aesthetics— if something works the way it guarantees, we don’t give a *what* if it smells awful, comes in a bag and takes four weeks to arrive on our doorstep. Lately, though, with the rise of environmentalism and minimalism, it’s kinda impossible to ignore product packaging. Plus, it doesn’t help that our favorite brands design irresistibly gorgeous packaging—because of which our bathroom vanities, shower caddies, and medicine cabinets look très chic. Here, our round-up of the 10 prettiest products worth buying, showing off, and even re-purposing once empty.


1. SACHAJUAN OCEAN MIST

Sachajuan Ocean Mist

That stunning shade of blue liquid in a perfectly minimal spray bottle? That’s The Ocean Mist from Swedish hair care brand Sachajuan, a favorite of Mane Addicts Editorial Director, Justine Marjan.

2. GLOSSIER BALM DOTCOM

Glossier Balm Dot Com

The Glossier team knows a thing or two about product design and lucky for us, they’ve built their brand around their readers reviews and packaging suggestions.

3. MR. SMITH BALANCING SHAMPOO

Mr Smith Balancing Shampoo

Another one of our haircare favorites from the land down under includes the heavenly-smelling and minimal Shampoo (and conditioner) from Mr. Smith. 

4. BOBBI BROWN SKIN NOURISH MASQUE

Bobbi Brown Skin Nourish Mask

Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is no newcomer to gorgeous-packaged products, but their new line of Masques are our favorite by far. The Parisian-esque tube, lid, and logo—oui, we’re obsessed.

5. OUAI WAVE SPRAY

Ouai Wave Spray

It’s impossible to pick a favorite from Jen Atkin’s OUAI lineup because every single one of the magic-containing bottles is designed specifically to be displayed. But if you put a gun to our head, we’d start to gush over the Wave Spray bottle—so fresh, so clean.

6. LEONOR GREYL  ‘HUILE SECRET DE BEAUTE’ HAIR AND SKIN OIL

Leonor Greyl Hair and Skin Oil

Make room on your vanity for this delicate hair oil in its perfume-style glass bottle and your bathroom will exude major luxe vibes.

6. DIPTYQUE CANDLE

Diptyque Candle

Diptyque candles are trendy and modern yet classically beautiful. Bonus: They smell amazing and can be repurposed to hold hair and makeup accessories. 

7. DAVINES OI ALL IN ONE MILK

Davines OI All in One Milk

Davines’ products are bottled with industrial-looking labels unique to the brand. Sleek and subtle, their goodies don’t scream “hair product.” The OI All In One Milk is particularly dapper, dontcha think?

8. BYREDO PERFUME

Byredo Gypsy WaterByredo Perfumes (and hair perfumes) are totes popular for their minimalist packaging and equally minimalist, earthy fragrances. Our fave is the Super Cedar, but Gypsy Water comes in a close second.

9. REVERIE NUDE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER

Reverie Nude Shampoo Luxury botanical hair brand Reverie’s products stun with their monochromatic packages and cheeky product names like Nude, Milk, and Cake.

10. SUNDAY RILEY FLORA FACE OIL

Sunday Riley FLORA Face Oil

There’s something so delicately feminine about a gold-accented bottle full of rose-tinted liquid. This face oil’s nourishing properties give us all the more reason to want to slather it on.


 Which one’s the prettiest of them all?
