ABOUT ME

AboutUs-AboutMe

Thank you for stopping by my page. I created this company for you to learn more about clean beauty and holistic, natural self-care products.

While growing up, I surrounded myself in a healthy lifestyle by staying active and having healthy habits such as getting 8 hours of sleep or just having breakfast.  I truly believe in putting your health as a priority to achieve a healthy lifestyle.  Beside keeping fit, I realized what I use on my skin can cause skin irritation and may link to harmful chemicals. Then I found out not all my luxury beauty products are considered healthy.  After researching, alot of my favorite beauty brands contain toxic ingredients that can lead to cancer and hormone disrupters.  Therefore, I decided to switch my cosmetics and personal care to natural ingredients.  

The past decade, I grew my passion for marketing and eCommerce.  I built eCommerce websites for startups and small businesses. Then I was able to work with so many influential beauty, fashion, lifestyle bloggers and Youtubers.  And I had a chance to collaborate with many social media influencers in mommy, beauty, fashion, and lifestyle media outlets. I cannot express my gratitude for building partnerships like Merrick White, Jasmine Maria, Thrifty NW Mom, The Budget Savvy Bride, Cali Coupon Chick, and many more.

Then in 2017, I decided to join a clean beauty movement. Now, I bring my passion for the Beauty & Wellness Industry. I became a beauty advocate for a company called Beautycounter, a community for safer and natural skincare and cosmetics for women, men, and children. 

I take great pride in promoting high-quality natural cosmetics and personal care products that are free of harsh chemicals and over 1,500 of the questionable ingredients that are found in many other formulations.

I fell in love with company's mission which is to get safer products into the hands of everyone.  My goal is to share health and beauty advice to people who want to live a happy, and healthy lifestyle.

Lisa has had the pleasure of modeling for companies like Target, Aveda, Snap Fitness, Subway, Reebok, Best Buy, Regis, and other amazing designers in the twin cities area. 

Her decision to join Beautycounter and to use safe products in her makeup kit came after discovering the beauty industry had very little knowledge into what companies were allowed to put into cosmetics and skincare products. With potentially toxic ingredients in her products, she knew she had to make the switch to show people you can create beautiful glamorous looks without using toxic products. Her main goal is to make sure she is helping women look and feel good without jeopardizing their health.

 

My team Amber

 

 Amberlynn is an actress, future Esthetician & skincare enthusiast!  She developed a passion for skincare at an early age due to her battle with Eczema and cystic acne. After years of using steroids & strong prescription medications without much improvement, she began to look for more natural safe remedies. She believed the toxic ingredients found in cosmetics & even the medications she was given actually contributed to the ongoing issues with her skin.

She decided to immerse herself in the skincare world in order to fully understand the science & complexities of skin & different skin types. While currently attending the Esthetics program at Santa Monica College her goal is to help others find clean safe products that are still effective.
