Located on Florida Ave and 14th Street, Ivy Wild is a new beauty boutique that curates non-toxic skincare and makeup products that fuse style with a bit of edge. I kicked off my visit by sharing my skincare priorities with Ivy Wild founder Rachel Mulcahy, who walked me through a bunch of different products to fit my needs. Brands featured at the store include Kosas, Odacité, and a latest favorite of mine - Joanna Vargas Skincare - among others.
