Greg B. Thumm, president of Thumm & Co., a father- and son-owned boutique fashion watch company in downtown Warren, shows a selection of watches made by the company.

It’s usually the time of year that Boots starts their annual 70{85e7f5b37d2b3b32ff943ebdbb52de90edc4132ca8c2134f6732351e5442126f} off sale in stores across the country, with shoppers snapping up bargains in store and online.

But, with shops across Scotland closed due to lockdown, customers might have wondered if they would miss out on the yearly savings in 2021.

However, Boots has opted for something slightly different this year, with their ‘ Pay Day Drop ‘ – a sale across multiple departments coinciding with pay day for many people.

The Danish beauty market has long emphasised the importance of a less-is-more aesthetic, embracing natural ingredients like the complexion-boosting potential of acai years before the berry became de rigueur in breakfast bowls, and elegant if efficient packaging. (No surprise, as this is the same country from which design geniuses such as Arne Jacobsen, Georg Jenson, and Hans Wegner hailed.)

While many of these cosmetic companies have yet to make waves stateside — save one all-day moisturising lip balm that goes on white but leaves a matte, almost-powdery finish — that’s about to change. Boutique brands are churning out coffee-infused eye oils; display worthy dry brushes; subtle self-tanners meant to blend in, not stand out; and more. As the fashion flock eyes the latest sartorial creations the City of Spires has to offer this week, here’s a look at a few of the great Danes of skin care and make-up.
