That’s why you don’t want to miss the annual Credo Friends & Family Sale, which runs from October 21 to 24.
The 20% discount is applied at checkout, so you won't need a coupon code, whether you’re shopping online or in-store at one of their 10 US locations. The only exclusions from the sale are Kypris, Josh Rosebrook, gift cards and previously marked-down items.

Credo Friends & Family Sale Picks
Tower 28 SunnyDays Tinted SPF Sunscreen Foundation
Tower 28 SunnyDays Tinted SPF Sunscreen Foundation is a newly launched mineral sunscreen that doubles as a foundation. It protects with 12.6% zinc oxide, and gives your skin light to medium coverage in 14 buildable shades. It’s also silicone-free, fragrance-free and safe for sensitive skin conditions such as eczema.
Kinship Skin Win Duo
Kinship Skin Win Duo includes two full-sized products: a fan-favourite mineral sunscreen and a creamy cleanser for all skin types. The SPF is lightweight, non-greasy and silicone-free, with a subtle sheer tint to help even out your skin tone. The smoothie-like cleanser is sulfate-free, and spiked with fruit enzymes to gently exfoliate.
Kosas Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer
Kosas Revealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer is the clean beauty concealer that we’ve all been waiting for. It gives you creamy, buildable medium coverage that looks natural, lasts all day, and doesn’t crease (even under the eyes). Choose from 28 shades with warm, cool and neutral undertones.
Marie Veronique Soothing B3 Serum
Marie Veronique Soothing B3 Serum is a gel-like serum with 10% niacinamide—a wonder ingredient for calming inflammation, fading pigmentation, reducing breakouts and more. It’s lightly moisturizing (so it does the same job as a hydrating serum), and is made without silicones, fragrance or essential oils.
Westman Atelier Gift Edition
Westman Atelier Gift Edition is a holiday-ready makeup set by celebrity makeup artist Gucci Westman. The lip palette in Bordeaux is brand new, and gives you four matte shades, from nude to merlot. Wear them with the creamy highlighter stick in a new pearly hue.
INNBeauty Project Down to Tone Life Changing Toner
INNBeauty Project Down to Tone Life Changing Toner is a clean dupe for a certain cult-favourite French toner. It has six acids—gluconolactone, lactic, phytic, malic, salicylic and citric—plus niacinamide, vinegar and burdock root, to name just a few ingredients. It’s also fragrance-free and alcohol-free.
Herbivore Botanicals Soak & Soften Set
Herbivore Botanicals Soak & Soften Set is a three-piece kit for a skin-softening and relaxing bath. It’s comprised of a coconut milk bath soak, rose-scented bath salts and a moisturizing body scrub. Everything is all-natural and scented with essential oils, not synthetic fragrance.
African Botanics Retinal Night Cream
African Botanics Retinal Night Cream is one of the only anti-aging treatments with retinaldehyde, which is more potent than retinol but less irritating, and also has anti-acne benefits. Here, it’s in a lightweight lotion alongside marula oil, fatty alcohol, rice protein and squalane (and no fragrance or silicones).
Olio E Osso Tinted Balms
Olio E Osso Tinted Balms are a must-try for anyone who loves multi-purpose makeup with minimal ingredients. Made of shea oil, olive oil and beeswax, they come in 11 tints that you can swipe across your cheeks, lips and eyelids for dewy sheer colour. (Hint: If you just get one, I suggest No. 2 French Melon!)
EleVen by Venus Williams Unrivaled Sun Serum SPF 35
EleVen by Venus Williams Unrivaled Sun Serum SPF 35 is a must-try if you hate the heavy feel and ghostly cast of many mineral sunscreens. This one looks and feels like you’ve got nothing on your skin, even though it’s packed with the highest concentration of zinc oxide (25%). Even on deep skin tones, it is non-whitening.
Kjaer Weis Im-Possible Mascara
Kjaer Weis Im-Possible Mascara is a certified organic mascara that promises to do everything conventional mascaras do, and more. Not only does it volumize, lengthen, lift and define, it also contains nourishing natural ingredients that help to prevent breakage and stimulate growth.
Tata Harper Mix & Mask Set
Tata Harper Mix & Mask Set gives you a full-sized jar of one of my all-time favourite face masks, plus three travel-sized masks to round out your masking wardrobe. The resurfacing mask contains natural BHAs and is gentle enough for all skin types. There’s also a clarifying mask, hydrating mask and purifying mask.
ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40
ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 is a multitasking skin tint, sunscreen and skin treatment in one. Now available in 30 shades, it could replace your usual foundation while also giving you some sun protection, thanks to the 12% zinc oxide. It’s also got 6% squalane and 0.5% hyaluronic acid for moisture, and 2% niacinamide for brightening.
Innersense Organic Beauty Sweet Spirit Leave In Conditioner
Innersense Organic Beauty Sweet Spirit Leave In Conditioner is one of the only leave-in conditioners that doesn’t weigh down my fine hair or make it look greasy. Not only is it extremely lightweight, it’s also an effective detangler, thanks to ingredients like aloe, glycerin and amino acids. The essential oil blend makes your hair smell amazing, too.
Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser
Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser is a cleanser that I recommend time and time again. It’s sulfate-free, with a gel texture, and it does a great of both removing makeup and cleaning your skin, all in one step. Best of all, it is non-drying, and my skin never feels tight after using it.
RMS Beauty “Re” Evolve Radiance Locking Primer
RMS Beauty “Re” Evolve Radiance Locking Primer is the newest addition to the brand’s range of clean makeup essentials. Naturally, it’s silicone-free, and creates a smooth, radiant canvas while locking in hydration with squalane and hyaluronic acid. The packaging is also refillable.
BYBI Beauty 1% Bakuchiol + Olive Squalane Oil Booster
BYBI Beauty 1% Bakuchiol + Olive Squalane Oil Booster contains just two ingredients: olive-derived squalane oil and 1% bakuchiol, a plant-based alternative to retinol. You can either wear it alone or mix a few drops into your creams and serums to boost their benefits. Bakuchiol has been found to improve skin texture and may even help with breakouts.
OSEA Atmosphere Protection Cream
OSEA Atmosphere Protection Cream is one of the best natural and silicone-free moisturizers. Somehow, it manages to be very hydrating but extremely lightweight on the skin. The blend of algae extract, macadamia oil and shea butter gives it a lotion texture with a silky-smooth matte finish.
Abhati Suisse Kanva Body Lotion
Abhati Suisse Kanva Body Lotion is one of the cleanest body lotions around. It’s a nourishing blend of coconut oil, glycerin, shea butter, fatty alcohol and moringa oil, infused with essential oils for a subtle, fresh scent. Bonus: because it is primarily composed of stable plant oils, it will have a longer shelf life than most moisturizers.
