When Bergen County mamas Alanna Davis, Jodi Salob, and Corey Taylor met through the nine kids they have between them a few years ago, they confessed to girl crushing on each other right away. But the three didn’t just become BFFs ... they also became business partners, recently opening Crush’d Garage, a health, beauty, and wellness marketplace in Cresskill.
“The garage aspect is kind of like our body shop. We wanted to create a beautiful space where people could experience everything in the wellness world,” says Salob. The result is a shop chock full of hot products that are cruelty-free, all-natural, and mostly organic where locals can poke around while grabbing a juice or elixir. And the ladies are currently amping up their wellness-focused programming, bringing in experts like nutritionists and fitness trainers to share tips onsite. “We’re filling a void. There is nothing like this in the area,” says Salob. “People have been pleasantly surprised.” And since the power of plants is super important to the trio (Taylor runs the popular Instagram account The Vegan Six, documenting her family’s vegan lifestyle), the shop boasts a live wall, growing peace lilies and other plants in the middle of the space.
Here, the ladies share Crush’d Garage’s top five beauty and wellness picks.
