Skin Care

Plush Skin founder Erica Marie Wigley

Plush Skin pays homage to New York City with its New York Ambition collection: Greenwich Village Scrub Down, Soho Chic Body Elixir, and 5th Avenue’s Finest Refined Body Silk. This trio is chock-full of natural and organic ingredients, and is a tribute to the intangible essence of one the world’s greatest cities. Founder Erica Marie Wigley, whose father was a soap maker, wanted to celebrate the spirit of her native hometown, so Plush Skin was born as a result.

Greenwich Village Scrub Down is a moisturizing body polish that combines the finest sea salts with skin-softening soy proteins. Skin is left feeling revived and soft, especially after a long day of imbibing Magnolia Cupcakes in Washington Square Park and shopping in the boutiques along Bleecker Street.

Soho Chic Body Oil Elixir contains softening essential oils for delicate skin that add a subtle glow. Enriched with grapeseed oil to improve circulation and inhibit collagen breakdown, and protective argan oil, this elixir is both indulgent and nourishing for the skin. You’ll appreciate it most as you garner admiring glances on the streets of Soho.

The super emollient 5th Avenue’s Finest Refined Body Silk absorbs quickly into the cellular level of the skin with restorative shea butter and vitamin C, which results in a luxuriously soft feeling for the skin. Aptly named, this moisturizer is both fine and silky. Slather it on as you wend your way up one of the world’s most famous avenues.
