Not our two 14-year-olds, that’s for sure. Cindy and I just went in to humor them. We left our menfolk guarding our luggage on the street. Did I forget to mention that we found the store as we headed back to Grand Central Station for our ride home?
It soon became evident to me that I was going to be doing some serious shopping in this store. I walked from one bright and well-organized display to another. The store is very easy to maneuver. The cases are bright white with red trim, and they are lettered to identify the products. No need to waste time looking for the hair or skin products; it will be very evident where they are located.
The first display you notice as you enter the store is their handmade soaps.
With such luscious scents as pineapple, grapefruit, melon, grape, mint, rosemary, and bergamot, you will be hard-pressed to settle on just one. But for the price, why not splurge and get all the scents that appeal to you?
I am crazy about jasmine, and I hardly ever find as many choices of products with that scent as I found here. I could choose from body wash, body lotion, body scrub (which I had to have), body cream, body butter, and body mist (which I absolutely love).
Even if jasmine isn’t your favorite, you can still load up here on kiwi, mango, rose, papaya, orchid, rose, lavender, or ylang-ylang.
You don’t need to stop at body products; they have a fabulous selection of hair and face products, as well as make up. At less than a dollar and a half, I had to buy a new nail polish for my toes. The men haven’t been neglected either--you will find a whole line of products just for them.
Missha has been in business for over five years, with their first store opening in South Korea in January of 2000. Having broken into the American market with this new store in New York, I predict that they have a very bright future, and with their commitment to providing the highest-quality beauty products at the lowest possible prices, they have a winning combination.
