If you prefer clean beauty, chances are you’ve shopped at Credo Beauty. Because the retailer has its own Credo Clean Standard, you know exactly what does not go into the products you see online or in-store. Surprisingly (or not surprisingly), Credo has one of the strictest guidelines in the U.S. — much stricter than those that our government provides — so much so that emerging clean beauty brands will make sure their formulations adhere to Credo’s rules.
In case you need another reason to shop, between Thursday, October 19, and Monday, October 23, everything on Credo is 20% off (no promo code needed). Five days is not a lot of time, so don’t dwell and risk your faves running out of stock.
If we were you, we’d add a few 2023 Best of Beauty Award winners like the Ilia Bright Start Activated Eye Cream, Kosas Brow Pop Nano, and Ellis Brooklyn Florist Eau de Parfum into our carts. They make great gifts too, if you’re already on the hunt.
Our Top Picks:
Best Credo Skin-Care Deals
Credo’s skin-care section is nothing short of stacked. In the market for a new eye cream that brightens and depuffs? We suggest trying out the Best of Beauty-winning Ilia Bright Start Activated Eye cream. With colder weather around us, it’s also time to swap your lightweight moisturizers for Le Prunier’s Plum Beauty Oil or Osea’s Undaria Algae Body Oil.
Best Credo Makeup Deals
Makeup infused with skin-loving ingredients? Sign us up. Formulated with jojoba seed oil and grape extract to boost hydration, Westman Atelier’s Baby Cheeks is the ideal swipe-and-go blush. Exa’s High Fidelity Balancing Color Correctors come in six versatile shades to even every skin tone, brighten undereye circles, and neutralize dark spots and hyperpigmentation — ingredients-wise, there’s marshmallow root, rice bran, and licorice to lend skin more radiance. Commerce editor Sarah Han has been using the Tower 28 Swipe Serum Concealer every day since she got her sample pre-launch because it’s uber-hydrating but doesn’t skimp out on coverage.
Best Credo Hair-Care Deals
This is not a drill: Jennifer Aniston‘s LolaVie has officially landed at Credo Beauty — and, of course, we have to recommend the Best of Beauty-winning Perfecting Leave-In, which delivers ample hydration, heat protection, and frizz-fighting properties thanks to açaí, coconut, and Rose of Jericho. For those who are starting to notice gray hairs pop up, Arey Wash Shampoo helps preserve your natural color through its special Mela-9 Complex. (Plus, the naturally-derived cedar and sage scent smells so enticing.)
Best Credo Beauty Fragrance Deals
No matter what the season, we love scents that make us feel like we’re on an adventure or strolling about a blooming garden. Ellis Brooklyn’s Florist Eau de Parfum and Henry Rose’s Windows Down Eau de Parfum — both of which are Best of Beauty Award winners (2023 and 2022, respectively) — are two of our top picks.
