I recently stumbled upon one of my favorite spots in San Francisco, Credo Beauty, a natural beauty boutique and mini Tata Harper spa in the Fillmore district of SF. Credo Beauty carries a wonderful assortment of natural and organic beauty and skincare brands, all of which are held to strict natural ingredient requirements.
Credo Beauty SF is my kind of store: It carries a variety of harder-to-find natural beauty and skincare brands, has beautiful displays in a small clean store, and best of all, it is located near another favorite spot, the International Orange spa. › Continue reading

Forever on the hunt for amazingly refreshing facial mist products, I thought I had found my favorite (Sue Devitt Microquatic Luminous Finishing Mist). That was before I came across a small unassuming bottle of aromatic hydrating goodness, Kerstin Florian’s Rehydrating Neroli Water, during a special getaway to Big Sur’s Ventana Inn & Spa.
Though I hadn’t heard of Kerstin Florian products before, once I tried of spritz of the Rehydrating Neroli Water, I was instantly smitten. I had found The One – the Best Facial Mist Ever!
Unassuming packaging aside, Kerstin Florian’s Rehydrating Neroli Water, feels › Continue reading

Started out a doubter, but now I’m a lover…
When I received a few products from the new Benefit Cosmetics b.Right! skincare line in my mailbox, I didn’t actually expect to be that impressed, since makeup, in my opinion, has always been Benefit’s strongest suit.
Well, I was wrong to doubt Benefit’s ability to bring it with b.Right! I am absolutely loving the two Benefit b.Right! cleansers that I’ve tried, the Refined Finish Facial Polish and the Foamingly Clean Facial Wash. They make me feel more girly and more… clean.
The thing I love the most about the new Benefit b.Right! Radiant Skincare line is the fragrance: a fresh, pretty, and well-groomed bright floral that has just enough sparkle to make it interesting and modern. I want to say the scent is “perky,” › Continue reading

When I came across this special offer where you buy Dr. Howard Murad’s new book, The Water Secret, and then get up to $200 in Murad skincare products in the mail, I was honestly pretty skeptical. Given that the Murad Sleep Reform Serum I was eying cost $97, this offer just sounded too good to be true.
Since I heard about this offer through trusted friends at The Beauty Grapevine (formerly eMakeMeUp Grapevine), I went for it! I bought a copy of The Water Secret (about $10.70 on Amazon), emailed my receipt to Murad by November 2, and then held my breath and waited.
Here is what I got in my Water Secret Gift Bag… › Continue reading

Meilily Product Photos: Kiehl’s Celebrity-Designed Acai Toning Mists!
What do recording artist Pharrell Williams, actress Julianne Moore, artist Jeff Koons, and model Malia Jones have in common? They have all designed limited edition labels for Kiehl’s Acai Damage-Protecting Toning Mist, with up to $200,000 of net profits from the sale of the celebrity Toning Mists going to the Rainforest Alliance.
These 100% organic Limited Edition Acai Toning Mists are available in Kiehl’s stores now for $26 for a 6 fl. oz. spray bottle (same price as the regular bottles). These lavender-scented toning face mists are are my current “hot product” picks for Spring and Summer. The limited editions may also be slight reformulations of the regular Acai Toning Mist, which also contains “100% natural origin ingredients” but do not say they are “100% organic.”
My favorite designs? › Continue reading
