2020. All we can say is “Phew…what a year!” The year of so many “new”s. New ways to work. New ways to connect. New ways to look good from the mask up. New normal. And new reasons to turn selfcare Sunday into an all-week event.
As this year-for-the-record-books wraps up, we asked our Credo team and friends how they did it? How they found sanity, fun and clean beauty (often with a side of wine) and here’s how they stayed healthy, gorgeous and dare-we-say, calm.
Dawn Dobras, CEO: Goop Martini Emotional Detox Bath Soak
Michelle Adams, Credo Chicago Store Manager: Skin Gym Face Sculptor
Joshua Pierce, Education Manager: Neal’s Yard Remedies Frankincense Intense Lift Eye Cream
“Working hard to keep my under eyes hydrated and firm! This definitely has helped with the appearance of fine lines.”Never underestimate the power of caffeine. Neal Yard Remedies Frankincense Intense Lift Eye Cream helps firm things up and soften fine lines. Green tea caffeine, turmeric and coffee seed do some major lifting. The reviews are epic.
Laura Frances, Marketing Manager: Kosas Revealer Concealer and Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlighter
“MUST-HAVE DUO to look instantly fresh on Zoom calls and feel kind of put together...”Forget the “touch up my appearance” zoom option and show up glowing and flawless with Kosas Revealer Concealer that doesn’t just cover imperfections, but actually nourishes and brightens – literally like a lightbulb for your skin. Add Westman Atelier’s Lit Up Highlight Stick, silky gel highlighter for such an iridescent glow they’ll never notice you’re wearing sweatpants.
Shea Kimbrough, Credo Plano Store Manager: Tower 28 SOS Spray
“The cure for any and all things, and Maskne’s worst nightmare!!!”Yep, maskne is real. This Tower 28 SOS (Save our Skin) Spray saves every day by helping soothe irritation and defend against everyday stressors (what stress?) like makeup, sweat and pollution. Spritz away the day…or the year.
Holly Jo Harris, Customer Experience Manager: Westman Atelier Peau de Peche and Rituel De Fille Lunaris
“And my new love African Botanics Rose Treatment Essence for ultra-smooth skin!! It literally has erased pores!”We love that Holly Jo couldn’t stop at just one…starting with Westman Atelier’s Super Loaded Tinted Highlighter in Peau de Peche that travels from eyes to cheeks to anyplace that needs a gorgeous, radiant pop of color - topped with a dose of Rituel De Fille Lunaris that leaves you with an angelic ethereal glow. And don’t even get us started on the African Botanics Essence. Peptides, Vitamins and pure rose water combine and poof…we can’t find Holly Jo’s pores…or ours.
Katey Denno, Credo Ambassador and Celebrity Makeup Artist: her survival kit
“I love to relax with Saint Jane Body Serum at night, Kosas Sun Show Baked Bronzer for zoom calls, which is very forgiving for people who don’t love shimmer, Tata Harper’s Resurfacing Mask, like a facial in a jar and Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint is 6 products in 1…and done.”
We want it all…
• This Saint Jane Beauty Luxury Body Serum is silky beyond belief…infused with botanicals and CBD. Hard to explain…trust us (and Katey).
• Kosas The Sun Show Moisturizing Baked Bronzer with shea butter contours and sculpts your natural highlights for just enough glow without too much shimmer.
• (Bestselling) Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask literally helps transform dull complexions, reduce the appearance of pores and epically brighten 2020-tired skin with pink clay and pomegranate enzymes to exfoliate and resurface. Have you seen Katey’s glow? Enough said.
• Ilia Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 is makeup and skincare in one. Hyaluronic acid does some heavy lifting and plant-based squalane, niacinamide and a bit of tint evens out every complexion and softens all fine lines. Dewy perfection.
Jen Larson, Credo copywriter: Herbivore Blue Tansy MaskI, myself slather on my Herbivore Botanicals Blue Tansy Clarity Mask and watch Love Actually. Yes, I’ve seen it more than 6 times this season, but who’s counting? And all is calm, all is bright – including my skin. Wine might be involved for all of the above activities!
This Resurfacing Clarity Mask changes everything in under 10 minutes. Helps exfoliate, smooth and rejuvenate. Like a breath of fresh air for skin…all while you watch Karl and the Love Actually crew.
Have a wonderful send off to 2020 (buh bye), a happy holiday and a peaceful new year with those who matter most. Let’s toast to the many good things that have come into focus amidst the craziness. Love. Health. The beauty around us. Wine. Peace out, 2020.
