Lonely Planet review

The ‘oldest apothecary in America’ is now a slightly upscale fantasyland for the beauty-product obsessed (though there’s still an actual pharmacy for prescriptions and standard drugstore items for sale on the premises, too). In addition to its own CO Bigelow label products, including lip balms, hand and foot salves, shaving creams and rosewater, you can browse through lotions, shampoos, cosmetics and fragrances from makers including Weleda, Yu-Be, Vichy and many more.
