Our Personal Assistants will take care of it all. And if shopping makes her hungry or thirsty - we have some great options in town to take care of that, too!

Beautycounter Holiday Gift Cards
23 Newtown Lane, East Hampton NY 631-604-2400
Beautycounter’s Founder Gregg Renfrew, a wife and a mom, says: “I didn't know what I didn't know. As I applied sunscreen, lotion, and any number of beauty products on myself and my kids, I never thought for a second they might not be safe. After all, I thought, we live in a country that regulates everything. So imagine my surprise when I learned that when it comes to the personal care industry, that's simply not the case.”
“So I started Beautycounter, a company devoted to progress. Here you'll find a wealth of empowering information about ways we can all make the world healthier, along with safer products you can trust. Because we all deserve better. Our vision is bold; real answers are never timid. Help us put truth back in beauty.”

Nili Lotan’s influences remain rooted in her upbringing, inspired by a love for style from an early age. After graduating from Shenkar College of Engineering and Design in Tel Aviv, Lotan moved to New York where she lead design teams for some of the industry's most iconic names, including Ralph Lauren, Liz Claiborne and Nautica.
Lotan launched her eponymous label in 2003, grounded in the belief that a woman's wardrobe should function as an extension of herself. Lotan’s design philosophy is that clothes should be clean, sophisticated and functional. A designer should offer a woman elements for her own self-expression.
