Have you shopped with CAP Beauty? This natural beauty retailer has an incredible selection of brands that you don’t find everywhere, such as In Fiore, de Mamiel, Living Libations, and so much more. If you live in New York City you’re in luck because CAP Beauty is opening their flagship brick and mortar store in the West Village in January 2015. In addition to stocking the most luxurious natural lines available (over 50 brands!), they will offer a range of treatments including facials, acupuncture, massages, nutritional counseling and even baby massage — all utilizing the brands they carry. Every city deserves something like this, don’t you think? But enough daydreaming, back to this Friday Deal!
CAP Beauty is giving you The CAPtivator — their special energy mist developed by Lotus Wei — for FREE with any purchase over $150. Just use the code NMDLLOVE at checkout. This gift with purchase is available until 11:59 pm EST 12/14 while supplies last.
When we heard that CAP Beauty collaborated with Lotus Wei to create their own energizing mist, we knew they weren’t messing around. You know how much we adore Lotus Wei, and The CAPtivator is a radiant example of her work with flower essences and essential oils. Notes of sandalwood, neroli, and clary sage transport you to a blissful headspace while gardenia, crown flower, and lotus work on an energetic level to promote love from within. Bottom line: The CAPtivaor is a beautiful addition to any day. In fact, I’m using it now while writing this post. Wish I could spritz through the screen to your pretty faces.
We know you’ll have no trouble finding the perfect items to add to your cart at CAP Beauty, but we wanted to mention some special gift boxes that are available for the holidays — The CAP Beauty CAPsules — a selection of 5 curated, themed boxes. There’s something for everyone — The Freshman Five includes five of CAP Beauty’s favorite basics, The Superfoodie includes a powerful quartet of healthy edibles, The Natural Newbie includes a great starter kit for anyone new to natural (including the No More Dirty Looks book!!), the Health Is Wealth CAPsule is a gold mine of little helpers to get you through the new year, and The Natural High CAPsule contains the most decadent treasures of them all.
If you are in NYC, be sure to check out CAP Beauty’s Holiday Pop Up Shop, which will be open December 13-24. While you should totally visit, please note that the Friday Deal is available online only.
Are you shopping this Friday Deal? What’s going on your shopping list?
This Friday Deal has been in the works since the summertime and the wait has been long. Well worth it though, because in addition to bringing you an excellent deal, we have additional good news to share. R.L. Linden & Co. is releasing their seasonal Yuletide Box today along with their new perfume collection! Happy dance! Before we get into the new goodies, here’s what you need to know to get this Friday Deal…
R.L. Linden & Co. is giving No More Dirty Looks readers 15% off plus free shipping in the US! Just use the code NMDL15! at checkout. The promotion lasts until the end of this Monday 12/8.
The ladies behind R.L. Linden & Co. have a gift for creating scent. You can pretty much wear the Close To Me Deodorant as a perfume, and the Thousand Petal Beautifying Mist offers as much for the senses as it does for the skin. As for the real perfumes, Ironwood #1 already has a NMDL following. Rebecca wrote about it in her Palo Santo post. We also got a sneak peak of Ritual #2 in the gorgeous R.L. Linden Autumn Box. Now there are 7 perfumes available. Each one is a tribute to a Denver-based artisan business — kindred spirits, if you will. R.L. Linden has even created a gift set of all 7 perfumes that includes directions for a Sensory Tour of Denver. How cool is that? Say hello to the new perfume collection:
- Ironwood #1 – A hypnotic and woody sacred anointing oil with notes of copal resin, frankincense tears and palo santo sticks; inspired by Ironwood Collection.
- Ritual #2 – A sexy and warm gourmand scent with notes of cacao nibs, bitter almond shells, spiced cardamom and aged cognac; inspired by Ritual Chocolate.
- Dram #3 – A native woodland scent with notes of fresh juniper berries, foraged rose hips, wild sage bitters and evergreen needles; inspired by Dram Apothecary.
- Beet & Yarrow #4 – A Victorian floral scent with notes of sweet violets, tuberose, fresh cut stems, broken twigs and muddled green leaves; inspired by Beet & Yarrow.
- R.L. Linden & Co #5 – A feminine, sweet rose scent with notes of antique roses, pink peppercorns, vanilla bourbon and pink grapefruit peels; inspired by the aromas created when we blend at the R.L.Linden & Co studio.
- Winter Session #6 – A rich and dignified scent with notes of cold pressed coffee, tanned leather, pipe tobacco and cedar pencils; inspired by Winter Session.
- Western Daughters #7 – A lush grassy scent with notes of freshly mown hay, cottonwood tree buds, sun-warmed prairie wildflowers and sweetgrass; inspired by Western Daughters.
Also not to be missed — the Limited Edition Seasonal Yuletide Box ($48). It’s here just in time for Yuletide, and hop on it because these seasonal boxes tend to sell out quickly. The Yuletide Box includes these special edition products all handmade by R.L. Linden: Lavender + Frankincense Moisture Milk, Yuletide Incense, Healing Mulling Spices, and Sick & Tired (of being sick and tired) Soothing Sinus Salve. Doesn’t that sound perfect for this time of year?
P.S. If you’re not in the US, you can still get this promotion and shipping charges will be half the normal rate. Woot!
Have you explored Tatcha? The skincare line is based on beauty secrets and traditions of the geisha, whose less-is-more skincare philosophy made a big impression on Tatcha’s founder. Tatcha is quite accessible and free of the badies — parabens, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, sulfate detergents, phthalates, urea, DEA or TEA — to start with. Precious natural ingredients like camellia, rice bran, licorice root, red algae, and green tea are the focus here. Tatcha ingredient lists will be too busy for some of the natural minimalists or purists among you, but this is a great line for people who crave the benefits of natural ingredients all done up in high-end, extra glossy packaging fit for Barneys New York. That’s Tatcha.
Today we’re sharing Tatcha’s Friends and Family Sale with you. Call it a Cyber Monday treat from us to you, because hey — we’re on the Internet, after all. We’ve been following Tatcha for some time. In addition to the reviewing the Tatcha Camellia Beauty Oil, Siobhan has also reviewed the Tatcha Blotting Papers (magic!) and included them in the summer NMDL Quarterly Box for fresh skin. New Tatcha favorites include the Deep Brightening Serum and the Camellia Cleansing Oil. The Cleansing Oil rinses off with water alone — great for times when you want a quick, non-drying cleanse in the shower or when you just want to take off your makeup as quickly as possible and climb into bed.
So here’s the deal…
Tatcha is offering 20% off anything on their site until next Monday, December 8. Just use the promotion code FF2014 to get 20% off your purchase.
If you are shopping for gifts, be sure to note their beautiful array of holiday gift sets. You’ll find a wide range of luxe treats at different price points. Mmmm, love the purple. Tatcha loves stories, traditions, and treasures, so in addition to sharing skincare rituals they’ve curated a small selection of limited edition gifts created by Japanese artisans. The gold leaf Obon Tray from Kanazawa is calling our names.
There’s probably no reason to remind you what today is. By some accounts, Black Friday began on Tuesday.

Aaannnd just like that two weeks has flown by and it’s time to bring our Meditation Challenge to a close. Maybe you tried something new, and perhaps (fingers crossed!) you even picked up a new tool. We’ve heard from many of you over the last two weeks, and we hope to hear more about your experience. But first, we have some Meditation Challenge prizes to give away from H. Gillerman Organics!

To enter to win, write us an email with SITSTILL in the subject line, and include your first name and location, written thusly “Siobhan, Brooklyn, NY” and a brief description of how you felt at the end of your 14 days. Send this to us at email@example.com by the end of the day Friday, November 28. (If you started late you have some time to catch up.)
Hope Gillerman made the Meditation Remedy oil especially for No More Dirty Looks readers! This blend is not available for purchase. However, if you didn’t participate in our meditation challenge, or you are entering the contest but don’t want to leave it to chance, you can get your very own Meditation Remedy oil with today’s Friday Deal. Here’s the deal…
H. Gillerman Organics is offering NMDL readers a FREE Meditation Remedy oil when you purchase the GET FOCUSED gift set by December 1.

The set includes the full-size pure breathing SINUS REMEDY and clear mind TENSION REMEDY both packed in an H. Gillerman Brooklyn-made, 5″ x 5″ Baggu zip-bag.
Chic! Practical! And these remedies are no joke. At least one is always within reach for us. The Tension Remedy melts headaches and works wonders for nausea, too.
What’s In the Meditation Remedy Oil?
Hope says this blend can be used during meditation – either by anointing the third eye and heart center, or by diffusing. It is also an excellent preparation for sleep and an anytime anti-anxiety oil.
Myrrh for the root chakra — The oil for helping you relax and settle into the sitting posture to begin your practice.
Frankincense for the crown chakra — The pinnacle of mindfulness/mediation oils. Used for many millennium, it also deepens the breath, relieves restlessness, promotes sleep and eases depression/anxiety.
Basil — Relaxes the nervous system. It’s a great brain oil that strengthens memory and will-power (good for starting a mediation program). Studies show it’s useful for sinus headaches, too.
