Just this week, friends Kerrilynn Pamer and Cindy DiPrima are opening the doors to their much buzzed about beauty and wellness shop, CAP Beauty. It’s essentially a Chalkboard reader’s candy store, filled with more of the brands and products we feature than just about anyplace else on earth.
Stylist Cindy and stylish Kerrilynn (who owned the West Village’s well-curated Castor & Pollux) have joined forces to create a space filled with their natural beauty must-haves, wellness superfoods, and – down the line – their very own spa.
These ladies get it. Their plan to offer treatments like lymphatic drainage facials to boost circulation and depuff alongside the best green serums and superfoods is on point. We invited these two to share their Green Goddess Guide with us and let us in our their latest CAP Beauty favorites and their own rituals…
Can’t travel without…
In a pinch I…
Cindy: Serve champagne.
Kerrilynn: Put on heels.
Always in my evening clutch:
Obsession of the moment:
Cindy: Anything made by the inspiring brother and sister duo, Vitruvi. Beautiful and sophisticated aromatherapy scents. There are seven of them, all for different moments of the day.
Kerrilynn:The magical facialist, Kristina Holey who is developing the protocol for our treatment rooms.
Cindy & Kerrilynn: Now that it’s getting cold out, we’re shifting from smoothies and juices to green soups. We love the Broccoli White Bean Soup from the newish Hemsley and Hemsley cookbook and a Spinach Soup with Cilantro we adapted from 101 Cookbooks. The Paul Bertolli Cauliflower Soup from Food52 is also genius. It’s a perfect addition to our CAP Beauty Lunch Club.
Cindy: A smoothie with mango, loads of spinach and a collagen supplement I take thanks to the advice of my genius herbalist, Daniela Turley.
Kerrilynn: My favorite teacup from Japan filled with a customized cocktail of superfood helpers that include Moon Juice Spirit and Body Dust and Four Sigma Foods reishi mushrooms.
For ultra-glamorous effect:
Cindy: Kari Gran Lip Whip.
Kerrilynn: RMS Lip Shine in Sublime. Its an over-the-top pink that looks too bright in the jar but just right on the lips.
Cindy: Janeke’s gold hair brush.
Kerrilynn: A dry brush session followed up by a massage with Night Queen Body Oil from In Fiore.
Weirdest beauty habit:
Cindy: I guess that would be the collagen supplement I add to my smoothie. I really don’t like to think about how that’s made! Its actually quite creepy, but I do think it works.
Kerrilynn: I don’t think I have one. Is that weird?
In the shower I keep…
Cindy: The detoxifying soap from Portland’s Pearl+. Its a gorgeous black soap made with pearl powder and activated charcoal. And for the kids there’s always a big bottle of Bath Wash from Zoe Organics.
Kerrilynn: Odacité’s Jasmine and Mimosa Body Scrub, Pelle gemstone soap, Acure Organics Shampoo and more body oils than I’d like to admit.
On my bedside table…
Kerrilynn: Always a novel. Always a business book. Right now I’m diving into the epic My Struggle by Karl Ove Knausgaard and Financial Intelligence. It’s going to be a long winter!
Once a month I…
Cindy: Edit my closet!
Kerrilynn: Get together with my best friends and have dinner, drink wine and catch up.
After a long-night or rough weekend…
On little sleep I rely on…
The product that changed my skin…
Most treasured beauty tip…
For glowing skin…
Cindy: Yoga, great nutrition and the Face and Eye Cream from Honey Girl.
Kerrilynn: Exercise in any form makes me glow.
My go-to DIY:
Cindy: A coconut oil hair mask.
Kerrilynn: Manuka honey mask.
