For those interested in scent and skin care, three new shops in the Larchmont Mercantile will be welcome additions to the neighborhood.
Skin Laundry, 132 N. Larchmont Blvd., has been open since July for its signature laser facials. “We kind of made laser facials a thing,” said Skye Bonfante, assistant clinic manager at the Larchmont location. The company’s 15-minute treatments focus on the second layer of skin — the dermis, which Bonfante said home skin care products and even European-style facials can’t reach on their own. Many Skin Laundry clients are looking for improved skin elasticity, plumpness and hydration. Others seek solutions for hyperpigmentation.
Skin Laundry’s treatments are performed by registered nurses and, according to Bonfante, are “quick, convenient and super results-based.” To learn more, visit: skinlaundry.com.
The Scent Room, 142 ½ N. Larchmont Blvd., which was originally set to open in October, ran into some difficulties trying to secure a contractor. But, Sam Clark, owner of the Boulevard location, told the Chronicle, “We’re finally back on track, and it’s looking like a January opening.” The team has been working hard locking down some amazing scent collections from around the world. According to Clark, the company will be “bringing dozens of new perfume lines to the Los Angeles market, some of which will be debuting in America for the first time.” For more about the company, visit: thescentroom.com.
Credo Beauty, 136 N. Larchmont Blvd., expects to open in mid-January. This will be the company’s second Los Angeles location and its 12th store. All of its products are cruelty-free and aimed to create a safer and more ethical beauty industry. According to Jessica Fitzsimons, Credo’s director of public relations, Credo has transformed what the term “clean” truly means in the under-regulated beauty industry, and the brand is known as the fastest-growing clean beauty retailer. Said Annie Jackson, Credo’s co-founder, “Larchmont Village is such a charming street with beautiful, independent shops and great restaurants, with some very like-minded businesses. So, it made so much sense to open Credo there.” She went on to say, “We have been looking on this street for quite some time and are extremely excited to unveil a brand-new store concept for the Larchmont customer.

Just south of Peet’s Coffee at 120 N. Larchmont Blvd., Thirteen Lune now has signage in the windows. According to the company’s website, the store is “designed to inspire the discovery of beauty brands created by Black and Brown founders that resonate with people of all colors.”
The Larchmont flagship location is the first stand-alone retail location for the e-commerce shop (which is also JCPenny’s flagship partner for in-shop stores). Store owners hadn’t been reached at the time of this writing, but the Larchmont Chronicle will update readers as new information becomes available.
