If you’re looking to tidy up your bathroom shelves by adding in some more “clean” beauty, head over to Credo. The clean-beauty retailer’s annual friends and family sale kicks off today, which means you can save 20 percent on over 130 of the best clean-beauty brands that are always getting shout-outs from stars and name-dropped by industry vets. All you have to do is add products to your cart and the discount will be automatically applied at checkout — but make it snappy, because you only have until Sunday to shop. From Venus Williams’s magical sunscreen serum to the clean dupes for Biologique P50 and SkinCeuticals vitamin C, here are some of our favorites to get you started.

This creamy, tinted moisturizer has been one of Ilia’s best sellers. Just a few drops melts into skin and makes it look (and feel) dewier. It comes in 30 shades and it has SPF too. A must for no-makeup makeup looks. —Kathleen Hou

Kosas products are known for their creamy, velvety textures and spot-on shades. This one is no different. It’s a bronzer that, with a few swipes, makes your skin look slightly more sun-kissed. —K.H.

This highlighter is fantastic on everyone, especially for those with mature skin. It’s incredibly creamy, so it won’t settle into lines and gives a lovely, J.Lo-like glow to all skin textures. —K.H.

It’s pricey, but Marie Veronique is largely considered to be the “clean” version of SkinCeuticals. She has the credentials to back it up, too. Marie Veronique is a former chemistry teacher, trained aesthetician, and now chemist who develops formulations with her physicist and biomedical daughter. This is one of her most popular products, a vitamin C that fights free radicals that doesn’t have that usual vitamin-C smell. Her retinol serum is also beloved. —K.H.

Winter is coming, which makes it a great time to buy this face oil. It’s lightweight, yet Credo reviewers praise how pretty and hydrated it makes skin feel. —K.H.

This sale is seasonal, but sunscreen is not. If you need to restock your SPF stash, consider this best-selling sun serum from the tennis star. It’s so lightweight and smooth that you won’t mind putting it on every morning, even if you’re just spending the day sitting inside and/or in front of the computer. —Erica Smith


Victoria Beckham is a fan of this seaweed-infused botanical body oil post-shower. It not only softens, nourishes, and firms skin, but smells like “the ideal summer vacation” in a bottle, which is a good thing to have handy as we head toward winter. —E.S.

This concentrated hair treatment does it all. The luxurious blend of five nourishing oils (jojoba, argan, moringa, rosemary, and clary sage) detangles, repairs, enriches and protects strands with just a few drops and zero residue.

It’s a great time to buy these truly non-sticky glosses that look good on everyone. Whether you go with clear or one of the pretty sheer shades, you’ll get that Y2K shine but with the hydrating comfort of a lip balm. —E.S.


If your skin’s been feeling blah lately, introduce it to this best-selling mask. The refreshing, jelly-like formula is packed with natural BHA exfoliants and enzymes that really work — your face will look considerably glowier and your skin will feel baby soft after just one use. —E.S.

This warm and sweet-yet-spicy scent is perfect for kicking off the cozy season. Its notes of honey, dark rum, vanilla bean, and cocoa absolute will have you smelling yourself more than your scented candles. —E.S.

This exfoliating tonic made up of five different acids is so good at its job that it’s gained a cult following that considers it the perfect dupe for Biologique Recherche’s P50. Now’s the perfect time to finally see what all the hype is about. —E.S.
