‘Tis the season…and I’m still rounding up some last-minute gifts because I’m a total procrastinator. In any case, I always enjoy any opportunity to sneak in some green beauty gifts for my family and friends! I selected a few of Credo Beauty’s show-stopping green beauty products (available in-store or online,) that will surely impress even the biggest humbug out there:
If you haven’t been following me on Instagram, I’ve just spent time abroad in Japan for a 2-week vacation (more on my trip soon). What peeves me the most when packing for a long trip is figuring out exactly what skincare and makeup essentials to bring, especially with a limitation on product sizes. Thankfully, Credo Beauty launched their Clean Beauty Kit just in time for me to bring it on vacation and test it out. Talk about a perfect travel skincare solution!
Lily Lolo is an all natural mineral makeup brand from the U.K. that just recently launched in the U.S. and Canada this year. I had been excitedly anticipating Lily Lolo’s North American debut because they are known for professional, high-quality mineral makeup with lots of product options and with reasonable prices.
Not only did Lily Lolo introduce their amazing mineral cosmetics to excited fans in the U.S. and Canada, the launch also welcomed some truly lust-worthy products. I was intrigued to be able to test out the brand’s new Mascara andBB Cream.
To be honest, switching out my conventional beauty and skincare products was a much more difficult and time-consuming task than I’d thought it could be. Sure, I enjoyed researching and learning more about ingredients, chemistry, and the body but sometimes I’d just ache for a website or someone to tell me everything I needed to know instantly. It can be stressful doing it all on your own.
With all the green beauty options out there now, it can be pleasantly overwhelming and confusing. Credo Beauty has an ingenious page on their website called “Healthy Swaps” which simply and expertly displays clean beauty product alternatives to swap out your dirty products with.
Credo Beauty is a brand new online green beauty store featuring an exceptional collection of beauty and skincare products from artisan brands. Through a beautiful and carefully curated storefront, Credo’s aim is to change the way consumers perceive ingredients, products and health. In addition to it’s new online space, Credo Beauty will also be opening up a brick & mortar store in San Francisco that will feature both retail and spa elements in April 2015. I love the clean, bright aspect of Credo Beauty’s online store, the great variety of brands, and the transparency provided for every brand and product offered. These “Maker Videos” really personalize the shopping experience by helping you get to know brand founders and missions better.
