Skinlife’s History

In January 2012, SKINLIFE opened its first store at number 4, Rua Paiva de Andrade in Chiado, a busy downtown area of Lisbon becoming our Flagship store. In July 2018, SKINLIFE opened its second store in Rua Manuel Jesus Coelho 4A, near Avenida, the high-end shopping district of the city.

We are always selecting new niche brands and products that have a story to tell, that have a philosophy, represent a dream or experience; making it available to our clients and customers. In October 2020, the company celebrated 10 years with the launch of their label Next Memory, inspired by the unique and specialised aromas of Portugal. Scents such as Fig, Sea Breeze or vibrant Oranges are some of the aromas created for our own collection of home and body fragrances.

Background

Founded by two Dutch entrepreneurs

Dennis de Vries and Patrick Van Den Berg – SKINLIFE is considered the best niche perfumery in Portugal and leads in personal and in-store beauty counselling services. Prior to opening SKINLIFE, Dennis had worked for several luxury cosmetic brands, such as La Mer and later became a manager for Skins Cosmetics, a large chain of beauty niche shops in the Netherlands. Patrick, the co-owner, was previously a makeup artist for the Chanel House in Benelux for more than 5 years. Furthermore, his Portuguese origins from his mother’s side allowed him to speak a little of the Portuguese language that facilitated the transition into the world of SKINLIFE Portugal.
