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
For a Cause: Kiehl’s Limited Edition Celebrity-Designed Acai Toning Mists Benefit the Rainforest Alliance

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.”

Meilily Beauty & Style News!
Luxury goods giant LVMH recently purchased a minority stake in Edun, the relatively small fair trade clothing company started by U2 frontman Bono and his wife, Ali Hewson. This is a good move by LVMH, which already owns a stake in many established fashion, beauty, and luxury brands including Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, De Beers, Sephora, Givenchy, and Guerlain.

Meilily Product Launch News!
This month, tarte cosmetics is launching three new products as part of the tarte summer 09 collection and some new shades. The new tarte summer 09 collection looks to be more of an innovative departure from their previous color-based collections and includes a natural lash enhancer and an anti-cellulite self-tanner! I’m really curious to try the new products and see how they work, especially since I’ve had really good luck with tarte products so far.
multiplEYE natural lash enhancer ($65)
Contains a clinically-proven peptide that gives the appearance of longer, thicker lashes. Apparently 90% of clinical subjects reported an “increase in lash thickness,” while all subjects reported an “increase in overall lash length.” Sounds impressive. Best of all, this lash enhancer is cruelty-free and free of parabens, petro-chemicals, dyes, and other questionable ingredients.
celluFIGHT natural anti-cellulite self-tanner ($40)
A double-duty skin-toning skincare product and self-tanner in one! I don’t normally self-tan because I’m too lazy for that, but this sounds intriguing. Ingredients include natural plant-derived DHA self-tanner, caffeine, algae extract, and natural green tea fragrance that is 70% organic.
eyeQuatic waterproof summer essentials set ($35)
This makeup set includes three new lock & roll eyeshadows (turquoise, citrine, tanzanite), a deluxe lights, camera, splashes! waterproof mascara, and an aquatic-mod headscarf.

Meilily Sale Alert and Product Pick!
Greenloop, a “green” online shop, is currently having a fantastic 30% off sale on Envirosax bags, the best reusable shopping bags ever! If I were to make a list of products that have actually made my life way easier, I would put Envirosax Reusable Shopping Bags on the list.
What: Greenloop 30% Off Envirosax Sale + Free Shipping Offer
Greenloop Free Shipping Code: BYOB09
When: Until February 2, 2009
Envirosax reusable bags are roomy, durable, attractive, and also very easy to store. I can attest to stuffing these full of heavy groceries without any problem. The Envirosax bags are made of lightweight polyester, printed using a non-fading process, and are supposed to be waterproof. Another thing that sets the Envirosax shopping bags apart from other bags is their self-closing feature (you can’t see it in product photos)- Just roll up a bag and the snap closure loops attached to the bottom wrap easily around the bag for compact storage. › Continue reading
