What is Credo Beauty?

Since living in San Francisco, I’ve been a addict and I think I forget that not everyone knows what Credo Beauty is. Credo is a marketplace to buy clean beauty brands and products. Similar to Sephora except they ONLY carry clean beauty. That means that everything you buy there you can be certain is free of harmful ingredients. 

They have several locations in the country (including San Francisco), however they also ship all across the US so don’t worry if they don’t have a location close to you. 

Once a year they have an annual sale where EVERYTHING is 20% off! This is the only sale they have all year so I always take it as an opportunity to stock up on some of my clean beauty products and favorite brands. If you’re looking to try out new products or switch to clean beauty this is THE time to buy.

Clean Beauty Products to Stock Up On

I am always looking for new clean beauty products to try and test (from Credo or not) but every year when Credo announces its annual sale I take it as an opportunity to stock up on my favorite products.

– This stuff is liquid gold. The perfect tinted SPF that adds a nice moisture barrier during the cold winter months.

– my makeup routine is pretty minimal these days thanks to the babe so combining a brow gel and tint in one has been critical. I use the shade Medium Brown.

– I’m normally a a gal but I recently fell in love with ILIA’s volumizing mascara. I found it took a few uses before the formula really held onto my eyelashes but now I LOVE it.

– just ran out and need to stock up on this! I use the shade Malibu.

– I had to replace my beloved when I found out I was pregnant (and then nursing) but I have been absolutely loving this hyaluronic serum and my skin does too!

Evolve Multi Peptide 360 Moisture Cream – I got hooked on this brand last winter when the harsh Minnesota weather dried out my skin. I cannot live without this stuff now.

– Such a great booster to add to your skincare routine. I love adding this to my serum before applying my oil.

Evolvh Mousse – I’ve tried so many different clean mousse brands and this is the only one I like!

Goop G.Tox Scalp Scrub – I wanted to hate this stuff (because goop…and expensive) but man is it good! If you tend to get a lot of product build-up in your hair this scalp scrub is a godsend.

Pipette – Ordering the Baby SPF, which we actually all use! I’d put in an order for some of their other products but they’re out of stock!

OSEA Undaria Body Oil – my go-to body oil these days. I apply each night after my bath.

New Clean Beauty Products I Ordered

I also stock up during the sale on products I’ve been wanting to try. I personally haven’t tried any of these products but many of them end up on my yearly favorites round-up in a few months!

Tower 28 SOS Daily Rescue Facial Spray – My eczema has been flaring and I’ve heard great things about this product. Excited to try it out!

Eu’Genia Essence of Lavender Shea Butter – For my dry and cracked feet! Also going to try for the eczema on my hands!

ILIA Clean Line Gel Liner – Looking for a good gel liner and this has rave reviews!

– This is my big splurge item. I’m out of powder bronzer (ordering the HAN bronzer above since I know I love!) but I’ve been really wanting to try this.

I think that’s it! Not too many new-to-me products to try but mainly because I’m stocking up on my favorites that I know are great.


The Best Clean Beauty Brands

“What are the best clean beauty brands on the market?” I get this question all the time and I wish I had a solid answer for all of you. Like conventional beauty there are SO many clean beauty brands out there each with its own ethos, product range and benefits. Every single day this number increases.

This list is by no means exhaustive but hopefully it’s a start as you look for the best clean beauty brands to try.

Makeup Brands:

-Their are incredible and their and bronzer are hard to beat!

Kosas – They make both makeup and body/skincare. I personally am a fan of their makeup, their brow gel, lip balm, and setting powder are fantastic.

Han Skincare + Cosmetics – very similar to Lily Lolo, Han Skincare and Cosmetics also makes great pressed products at an affordable price point. They have fewer products in their range but what they do have is great. I particularly love their bronzer and blush.

ILIA – I have a love-hate relationship with ILIA (mostly love!). The products they do well are some of the best on the market (lipstick, mascara, blush) and then they have others that just aren’t my favorite. Luckily they’re awesome with product feedback and usually come back with an even better formulation.

RMS – an OG in the makeup space, RMS has been around for a while and has definitely made their mark. I would consider this more of the Glossier of clean beauty. If you’re looking for that effortless, no-makeup makeup look, you will love RMS.

W3ll People – what makes W3ll People great is their affordability and accessibility (they’re available at everyone from Credo to Target). Admittedly not the cleanest on the market but they’re reliable and I love their concealer so much.

Skincare Brands:

True Botanicals – exclusive to Credo! I recently did a skincare review and really enjoyed a lot of their products.

Indie Lee – I truly believe Indie Lee is one the best bangs for your buck. Their products are high quality but don’t break the bank. Their squalane oil is a great starter oil for anyone looking to moisturize with oils.

Marie Veronique – expensive but worth every penny. Marie Veronique’s products combine natural and synthetic ingredients that are safe for your body and exceptionally effective. I’m particularly impressed with their serums that are astoundingly good and especially their gentle retinol.

Herbivore Botanicals – I’m obsessed with their Blue Tansy mask and their bath and bodycare products are SO good and luxurious. Admittedly I’m not as into their facial oils but overall a great brand.

Josh Rosebrook – It’s hard to beat the ingredients in Josh Rosebrook products. I’ve yet to be disappointed by anything they carry but am particularly obsessed with their .

Juice Beauty – their line of products is so comprehensive that there is pretty much something for everyone. From oil-free to organic facial oils there is something for everyone to enjoy. They also have makeup too though I tend to prefer their skincare products.

Tata Harper – The clean beauty OG, Tata Harper has been around for a long time and its customers are loyal. Full transparency: I don’t really use their products because even for me I think they’re insanely expensive. I’d love to try out more of their product line but even a 20% discount makes it hard to justify though the people who love, LOVE IT.

*note: this list only includes the clean beauty brands sold at Credo since it’s their 20% off sale. For a full look at the products I love check out the Green Beauty Shop where I curate all my favorite products.
