First, it was Kate Somerville, then Sunday Riley and then Morphe. Now Arnotts and Brown Thomas are launching Dr. Barbara Sturm online and in stores from today.
Fresh off the launch of cosmetic powerhouse, Morphe, Arnotts is continuing to bring premium quality beauty to the high street. This time with the launch of cult beauty brand Dr. Barbara Sturm which is available online from today and a limited assortment of hero products in-store as soon as the current government level 5 restrictions are lifted.
For the uninitiated, Dr. Barbara Sturm is a German aesthetics doctor, widely renowned for her anti-inflammatory philosophy and her non-surgical anti-aging skin treatments. She first gained worldwide acclaim back in 2002 when her radical “blood plasma facial” (or “vampire facial”, as it was later dubbed) was featured on Kim Kardashian’s Instagram feed. Soon after, Dr. Sturm launched an impossible-to-get-hold-of wonder cream named “MC1” which utilizes a patient’s own white blood cells and proteins that, when applied topically, had drastically glow-inducing effects and significant anti-ageing results. It was available by prescription only – and only via an impenetrable waitlist. As a result of demand, Dr. Sturm later decided to launch her own line of science-based skincare in 2014 that soon lustred a cult status with skincare devotees worldwide.
Specialising in non-surgical, age-defying skin solutions, each of one Dr. Sturm's products are packed with hardworking antioxidants and designed around Dr. Barbara Sturm’s innovative treatments. Formulated for those who yearn for an uncomplicated, yet highly effective skincare regime that provides hydration, nutrition and regeneration glow, Dr. Sturm’s skincare regimens are simple, but the products are not. From intense hydration drops to supercharged serums and deluxe face creams, this potent range works at the deepest level to activate anti-ageing processes for younger-looking skin.
But don't just take our word for it. It just so happens that celebrities such as Hailey Bieber, Emma Roberts, Bella Hadid, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Cher, Angela Bassett and Emily Ratajkowski - to name but a few.
Yet despite its cult-following and glowing reputation, Dr. Barbara Sturm products were hard to come by in Ireland. Anyone who has ever tried to get their hands on a Dr. Barbara Sturm or two will have undoubtedly been stung on international delivery charges or the dreaded 'we do not ship to your address' notification. But thanks to Arnotts and Brown Thomas, that's all about to change. Ireland's favourite department stores announced earlier today that both Arnotts and Brown Thomas were official stockists of Dr. Barbara Sturm. The full range of products (including men's and kids) is available online now at Brownthomas.com and Arnotts.ie. Dr. Barbara Sturm products will also be available in-store as soon as the current government level 5 restrictions are lifted.
So, to help guide you through the wonderful world that is Dr. Barbara Sturm, we've rounded up our current favourite products for you to add to your wishlist.
