Selenite Beauty is a clean beauty and wellness boutique located in the vibrant South End district of Charlotte, and we had the chance to chat with owner and founder Tiffany Mielnik Parrish, who let us in on her favorite’s at Selenite right now in skincare and beauty.
“These tried and true products are the perfect jumping off point for anyone starting their clean beauty journey, ” says Parrish. “These picks are my personal favorites and I know they will become your favorites too.”
Agent Nateur Lactic Acid Wash
Acid (Wash) Lactic Acid Brightening Cleanser has been a long time staple in my routine. I love how it is gentle enough for my sensitive and reactive skin while still containing powerful actives that improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, combat redness, and improve loss of skin volume and elasticity.
Fitglow Vita Active Serum
This serum is like the Rolls Royce of Vitamin C. With 20% stable Vitamin C and moisture boosting Hyaluronic Acid, this serum nourishes and transforms my skin while diminishing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and sun damage. This truly is the perfect antidote for all the sun overexposure I experienced in my early 20s.
Josh Rosebrook Active Infusion Oil
Retinoids are wildly popular in the skincare world but the conventional versions typically come with a slew of preservatives that can have harmful impacts on our health. Josh Rosebrook created one of the first BHT-free retinoids on the market and it certainly does not disappoint. This regenerating retinoid facial oil is boosted by a clinical concentration of stabilized Vitamin C which enhances the performance of the retinoid for greater efficacy and results. I apply this product in the evening and notice that my complexion is visibly smoother and more even the next day.
Kypris Puff of Love
Puff of Love is the perfect one and done moisturizer for those looking to streamline and simplify their routine. Its namesake ingredient, the Love in a Puff Vine, provides soothing hydration while ingredients like Jasmine Wax and Ectoin fight free radicals and inflammation. The perfect layer of hydrating protection from modern pollution.
Kypris Ad Astra Nighttime Eye Cream
The Ad Astra Eye Cream is one of the most potent nighttime eye creams that we have in our boutique. You only need a rice grain amount for both eyes, so a little goes a long way. This cream has a luscious, hydrating texture that smooths the under eye area and helps me look well slept even after a long night with my kids.
ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint
This best-selling skin tint really does it all. As a mom on the go, I love how it combines my skincare, makeup, and SPF 40 all into one step. I love how it is super easy to apply with your fingers, light weight, and gives a natural, skin-like finish. With ingredients like hyaluronic acid, squalene, and niacinamide, you get real skincare benefits along with your makeup coverage.
Fitglow Conceal + Treatment Concealer
I love how this concealer provides high coverage without looking cakey. I find that I only need a couple of quick dots to provide full coverage for my whole face. Skin-loving ingredients like organic green tea, vitamin K, and phyto elastin help treat the look of blemishes, pigmentations, and fine lines so you’re not only covering your skin, but you’re also working in harmony with it to improve its condition.
Fitglow Ultimate Night Care Duo
This Lash + Brow Serum and Lip Serum duo is such a powerful combination and perfect to keep on your nightstand as a last step before bed. As someone who fell victim to the early 2000s trend of the pencil thin eyebrows, this Lash + Brow serum is a lifesaver. I apply a thin layer to my lashline and eyebrows each night and I have seen brow regrowth comeback that I haven’t seen in years. The Night Lip Serum gently plumps, smooths and adds a surge of hydration to your lips all while you sleep with a super powered blend of beet extract and vegetable collagen.
Kypris Pot of Shade: Heliotropic SPF 30
SPF is one of the most important steps of any skincare routine. I love the Kypris Pot of Shade SPF because it doesn’t feel sticky like traditional sunscreens and it plays well under makeup. It plumps and smooths the skin while leaving you with a natural, luminous glow.
