Credo Comes to LA

Los Angeles’s busy West 3rd Street has landed it’s very own clean beauty emporium. Credo opened its first Los Angeles destination early February, joining the likes of Murad, Benefit, Aesop and Face Haus on the busy shopping stretch.

Always on the hunt for the new thing, I stopped in at the new location a couple of weeks back to see the beautiful blue open air space for myself. It is a welcome shopping experience. Clean, crisp and well organized, it makes it easy to spot old favorites and find new discoveries.

Skincare wise they carry classics like Indie Lee, Tata Harper and budget friendly Acure, along with up in comers like Susanne Kaufmann and Lilfox. And they have testers for everything!

I booked a mini facial with the lovely Allison. She was refreshing, honest, had a passion for skincare and very soothing hands. The Mini Facials are a great opportunity to test out products you’ve had your eye on and discover new ones you might have never noticed.

I really appreciated Allison’s candor when I was selecting products. After telling her some of my skin concerns and what I liked in products she helped guide my selection to what you see above.

I’ve been curious about In Fiore and Kari Gran but didn’t know where to start. I really enjoyed the calming oil she selected from In Fiore  and the luxurious scent of Kari Grans Lavender Hydrating Spray. Both are now on future shopping lists.

I’ve also been wanting to explore more Tata Harper and Kypris, two brands that can been a steep indulgence. The Tata Harper Nourishing Cleanser was lovely, as expected, and the Kypris Glow Philtre Mask just wasn’t for me.

The real stand out from the facial was Lilfox’s Jungle Glow. Allison’s most enthusiastic recommendation, and I can see why. The Enzyme Cleanser and Mask is a real skin treat! It wraps you in the scent of Manuka Honey, Cacao, Neroli and Grapefruit and is packed with antioxidant rich Rosehip and Passion fruit oils. I loved it so much I had to leave with one of my own. (Also loved it so much you can see it in my recent Skincare Favorites).

Along with Minis Facials and Makeup Application the shop has a it very own Tata Harper Spa. The room is a beautiful Tata green and I can’t wait to book myself in for one of these facials. 

After my mini facial I meandered through the beauty section. I swatched the likes of RMS, Vapour and finally got to see the much Instagram’d Kjaer Weis and Ritual De Fille in person.

I believe they offer Brow Services in addition to the Makeup Applications along with Clean Beauty Swaps where you can bring in old favorites and they’ll help you find a clean, green alternative.

They have several upcoming events, like Master Classes with both Indie Lee herself and Osea founder Jennifer Palmer, both you can bet I’ve already signed up for! If you live in the LA area I highly recommend stopping in at this welcoming shopping experience, you wont be disappointed!
