On my last trip to NY, I met some of the beautiful ladies who are behind the green-beauty brick-and-mortar shop, Credo. Think of this as the Sephora of green beauty. Packed with products that are #naturally best in class (and some up and coming cult faves), I had to share with you some of the faves from the team of Credo's NYC shop (find them on Prince Street).
Kristin Scatturo from Credo's NYC store showed me around their faves - and I had a great time testing out some old faves and new products on my radar. Here's what came out on top (and might be on top of your list this holiday season for the bffs on your shopping list):
Super soothing and anti-inflammatory (thank you Calendula!), In Fiore's Fleur Vibrante is truly healing - containing sea buckthorn berry, it protects against external environmental aggressors while Vitamin E helps out with those signs of premature aging. On top of that, Calendula and jasmine are powerful anti-agers that promote collagen and elasticity - dewy skin is in. Kristin's trick? It's a great product to also mix with any cream if you wanted to turn your day cream into a night cream as it creates a great barrier during harsh winter months.

A luxurious light weight but deeply hydrating body milk, RRose contains top notes of Sicilian lemon, cassis, pear as well as lotus blossom, peony and centifolia rose petals. It's the perfect compliment to the Rrose Fragrance and a great layering option (Paraben-free, Phthalates-free, & Cruelty-free). This body milk can also be worn alone for a lighter scent and gives the skin a beautiful glow. Kristin notes: It smells like heaven.

The perfect clean beauty swap for one of the top requested conventional pressed blushes. Han’s range of 100% natural pressed blush is made with soothing rice powder instead of talc and offers beautiful color with skin care benefits from vegetables and fruits and other healthful anti-aging ingredients. Universally flattering for so many skin tones and such a great price point! While it's highly pigmented, it is also easily blendable due to its soft texture. Love!

Gressa's Lip Boost is a highly pigmented, moisturizing lip product that gives long wear colour -- and doesn’t dry out your lips. It's light, non-sticky and moisturizing, so it feels like a balm and looks like a gloss. Um, yes please! Added bonus, you can dab a little on your checks for a natural flushed look (perfect travel companion).

I am already a big fan of Josh Rosebrook's Lift -- so when I saw this on the list, I was not surprised. Lift is known for it's weightless texture and volume (a matte, non-sticky finish). Through active plant infusions, the product is actually good for your hair -- organic yucca plant soothes and protects the scalp creating a natural thickening effect. Kristin notes Lift has "totally transformed blow drying my hair." And confirms: it's a great product to give that Bombshell Blowout. Her tip? It is best used on damp hair prior to styling to help hold your style all day.
