You Complete Me: Gregg Renfrew's Smooth Start(Source: Gregg Renfrew, Thinkstock; Art by Tanya Leigh Washington)Ever love something so much it makes you feel whole? You’re not alone, which is why we’re having our favorite tastemakers spill the must-haves they can’t live without.

Who: Gregg Renfrew, @GreggRenfrew
Where: Los Angeles, CA
By Day: I’m the founder and CEO of Beautycounter, a direct retail brand working to get safe personal care and beauty products into the hands of everyone. We believe that consumers should never have to compromise health for beauty. I spend my days working hard to help broaden awareness about toxic ingredients in the products we use every day and collaborating with our Santa Monica team on how we can continue to grow our business and improve operations.
By Night: Most nights, if I am not on the road, are spent having family dinners, reading stories with my kids and praying that I do not get woken up during the few hours of sleep I am hoping to enjoy. It was after becoming a mom, wife and Whole Foods shopper that I became aware of our exposure to environmental toxins in beauty products and knew that I needed to do something about it. I started Beautycounter because no one had created products that were safe and high performing that still looked great on my vanity.
Style: Definitely classic with a little glam.
You Complete Me: Breakfast Smoothies
My morning smoothie, a random concoction of organic berries, avocado, cucumber, lettuce, wheat-grass, almonds, banana, chia seeds, kale, spinach, protein powder and any other seasonal fruits and veggies—modern mom leftovers in a Vitamix. As a base, I use organic coconut water or OJ on a splurge. I have been drinking these smoothies for years and think they are the perfect breakfast. They're full of great nutrients, fill me up and ensure I get enough greens."
I'm the Deputy editor at StyleBistro, as well as a stationery buff, skincare enthusiast and dog lover. Follow me on Instagram and Twitter: @cvelocci Follow me: Google
