One of the newest beauty brands you might have noticed in (Singapore) town is Bottega Verde, an Italian brand founded in the heart of Tuscan countryside, which believes in using only natural ingredients. Established in 1972, Bottega Verde, (which is not affiliated to Bottega Veneta, other than that they’re both from Italy), has now set up in Suntec City, and more recently, Waterway Point. And unlike Bottega Veneta, which is a luxury brand known for its leather goods, Bottega Verde’s products are reasonably priced. We won’t be surprised to see you walking out of the store with a bag full of goodies within one visit.
Offering you products literally from head (hair care products) to toe (foot care products), Bottega Verde also takes care of everything in between: makeup, skincare, body care, perfume – you name it. Not sure which products to try, we recommend these three you can start off with:
