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

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: L’Occitane Limited Edition Peony Makeup Collection!
Exciting news! L’Occitane’s limited edition makeup collection is here! In select L’Occitane stores only, this rare garden-inspired Peony Makeup Collection is a must-see.
While wandering through a L’Occitane shop, I was drawn to a display of what appeared to be colorful flower seed packets. Imagine my surprise when I realized that L’Occitane, best known as a bath and skincare brand, has a new makeup collection out, and a pretty one at that. Each limited edition makeup shade is named after a particular peony.
Meilily’s top picks from the L’Occitane Peony Makeup Collection:
- Liquid Shine Lip Colour in 01 Marie Riviere (a flattering medium-pigmented gloss inspired by a “delicate salmon-pink peony,” according to L’Occitane)
- Facecolour Powder in 02 Valse de Vienne (a pretty “glossy pale pink” blush/eyeshadow)
- Lipstick in 03 Mme Louis Henry (a very sheer warm-pink shimmer lipstick inspired by “a pink peony with old-gold patina reflections”)
Check out these photos of items from the L’Occitane Peony Makeup Collection… › 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.”
My favorite designs? › Continue reading

While Meilily is on vacation in Kauai, here are some beauty and skincare product tips on what to bring on your next summer beach vacation… Check out this comparison of what Meilily brought, and what Meilily actually ended up using (and not using) while on vacation!
Beauty & Skincare Products for a Summer Beach Vacation
- Mineral Sunscreen -Lavera Sun Block SPF 40 Neutral Sunscreen (thick, mineral sun protection, whitening, but actually waterproof- perfect for hiking, snorkeling, and even beach-sitting!)
- Insect Repellent – Skin So Soft BUG GUARD Plus Picaridin Insect Repellent Towelettes (easy to apply in the right amount and smells pretty good)
- Natural Deodorant – Tom’s of Maine Natural Long-lasting Care Deodorant in Apricot (great, but perhaps not enough for a day-long trek through a swamp apparently)
- Hair Conditioner sample packets – DHC has some generous hair care samples (4 Free DHC Samples with Every Order.)
- A basic razor – I brought a disposable razor (shame on me), but non-disposable works too
- A wide brim fold-able sun hat – found one at Nordstrom on sale (so useful in hot sun!)
- Large sunglasses (really helps keep the delicate eye area protected from sun)
Good-to-haves… › Continue reading
