goop MRKT Austin
1204 S. Congress Ave., Austin
Austin, with its great food and great music and great Austin-ness, is a city we can’t get enough of. Which is why we knew it was time to open a store there. goop MRKT Austin is an IRL immersion into all things goop and goopy: Clean beauty products, gorgeous clothing, and—most exciting of all—we opened our little black book of wellness experts and healers. For the first time, we have treatment rooms available so anyone who drops by can indulge in some goop-style self-care, whether it’s a facial or a tarot card reading (keep a close eye on the store’s event schedule). And the store itself is stunning. Designer Sasha Adler worked her magic in infusing the store with an outdoorsy Austinite sensibility, weaving delicate motifs of the city’s famous lake and trees through the airy, all-white space (including an actual tree in the entryway). On the shelves you’ll find the gold list of nontoxic skin care, like Vintner’s Daughter and Tata Harper, and wellness-oriented products, like goop bath salts and our brand-new goop soft chews, alongside tops, pants, dresses, and stunning homewares. Open until April 28 in bustling…

Facials here combine Tata Harper’s ultradeluxe, super effective products with microdermabrasion, LED light therapy, and face massage.

Services are waterless, and technicians come armed with ten popular Essie shades, though you’re welcome to provide your own. (Basic treatments start at $15.) Everything, from the choice of service to the location and tip, is handled through Cherry’s user-friendly app.
