After I posted Going Organic about my search for natural beauty products, I popped into Cayli Cavaco Reck’s shop Knockout Beauty on the Upper East Side. Daughter of the ex-creative director of Allure magazine Paul Cavaco, Cayli’s interest in beauty and skincare started in her early teens and is now not only her passion, it’s a growing business. Following the success of a seasonal shop in the Hamptons last summer, the Lexington location is now a permanent address.
Packed with beautifully packaged natural products, the best part of the visit to the shop was the consultation with Cayli herself. I left with a slew of samples and detailed instructions on how to apply them and realized that an important part of buying beauty products are the recommendations from someone knowledgable. Then you can order refills online.
