These days everyone and their mother is aware of the importance of eating organic, exercise, and the wonders of kale. But what is the point of all these efforts if at the end of the day you slather your body in harmful chemicals? Well it seems that people are finally catching on that green beauty is just as important, and the Indie Beauty Expo is a driving force in helping spread that message. (more…)
Living in NYC there are only a few brick and mortar stores that carry green beauty brands, so when I heard that a Credo Beauty had opened in SOHO I was beyond thrilled. Last weekend I finally had the pleasure of visiting. The saleswoman was incredibly helpful in showing me around and introducing me to a few new products. I thought I would share what I purchased and my first impressions of them after a week of trying them out. (more…)

Why go green? So happy you asked! For me “going green” started like this: As I ran out of each beauty and personal care item I would carefully read reviews online before deciding on a clean non toxic product to replace it. I had never gone through so much work just to pick out deodorant and lipstick! Seems excessive, doesn’t it?
So why go through all that work?
Ok so hopefully by now you have a good sense of why using “clean” products is good idea. But you’re probably wondering “well that’s great but what am I supposed to use instead? Rainwater and leaves?” To which I say “No you ninny headed cotton muggin, I have a wonderful Green Beauty Starter Kit to keep you clean and happy” But if you do try rainwater and leaves…will you let me know how that goes? kinda sounds fun…
I’ve always had a love of all things beauty. From the age of 3-15 I studied ballet. Performing in The Nutcracker was incredibly thrilling. One of my favorite parts of the performing was having layers of Kryolan makeup applied to my unadulterated skin, completing my transformation to my given character. As a teen, the only errand I would enthusiastically partake in with my mother was trips to the drug store. I was captivated by the beauty aisles and the hundreds of products in various shades and finishes.
Growing up in the Bay Area also instilled in me a passion for the environment. Elementary school involved lessons on recycling and having a classroom compost bin. (more…)
