Sharing is caring, which is why my fellow beauty editors and I want to drop a helpful little hint: Thursday, October 21 through Sunday, October 24 is most definitely the most strategic day to stock up on your fave nontoxic beauty staples. (Plus, any other natural, clean, and/or organic formulas that have been loitering on your wish list.) The reason? Credo's once-a-year Friends & Family Sale has officially descended and almost every single brand stocked on the retailer's shelves (IRL and digital) is a whopping 20% off. Folks, that's over 130 of our favorite clean beauty brands! Think Tata Harper, Kosas, Ilia… the list goes on and on.

To get you in the mood, we each decided to reveal seven choice beauty products we highly recommend buying on the cheap while the opportunity presents itself. That said, if you'd like even more shopping inspiration, you can peruse Credo's newest product additions, the retailer's tried-and-true best sellersA+ gift ideas, and a selection of offerings that make it easy to segue your routine to the cleaner and greener side if you're keen to make that transition.

Your 20% discount will be applied at checkout, whether you're shopping with a mouse and keypad or IRL, and remember to act fast since this is only a once-per-year, four-day-only shindig. Keep scrolling! 21 editor-approved picks are just below.

Erin has been writing a mix of beauty and wellness content for Who What Wear for over four years. Prior to that, she spent two and half years writing for Byrdie. She now calls Santa Monica home but grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota, and studied writing, rhetoric, and communication at University of Wisconsin, La Crosse. She studied abroad in Galway, Ireland, and spent a summer in L.A. interning with the Byrdie and Who What Wear family. After graduating from UW, she spent one year in San Francisco, where she worked as a writer for Pottery Barn Kids and PBteen before moving down to L.A. to begin her career as a beauty editor. She considers her day-to-day beauty aesthetic very low-maintenance and relies on staples like clear brow serum (from Kimiko!), Lawless's Lip Plumping Mask in Cherry Vanilla, and an eyelash curler. For special occasions or days when she's taking more meetings or has an event, she'll wear anything and everything from Charlotte Tilbury (the foundations are game-changing), some shimmer on her lids (Stila and Róen do it best), and a few coats of the best mascara-type product on earth, Surratt's Noir Lash Tint.
