C.O. Bigelow is a pharmacy the likes of which you are hard pressed to find anywhere in the world. It’s been at this Greenwich Village location since 1836 and little has changed. The interior is still beautifully wood-paneled and the store still stocks the most luxurious cosmetic brands imaginable.
Our favorite one stop shop when we need any kind of beauty product, so much easier and quieter than a department store, Bigelow always seems to carry only the best of the best. They sell full make up lines of brands like Nars and Clarins but also natural brands like Revolution Organics. Luxurious scented candles by all the big names, hair products, Mason & Pearson hair brushes, toothbrushes from France, Butter London nail polish, this is a true old fashion apothecary.
The back of the store has a fully functioning pharmacy, where the learned pharmacists are helpful and well informed about your prescriptions. It would take us hours to list all the gorgeous products stocked in this wonderful store, but you’ll have to trust us when we say, its hands down the best place in New York for any medicinal or beauty product you could need.
