Lisa Price Founder of Carol’s Daughter Interviews With Marta Walsh

I’ve been trying to interview Lisa Price the fabulous founder of Carol’s Daughter for quite some time now. And, finally, here it is!

I’m so excited to share with you Lisa’s story of  an incredible journey creating a sought after skincare and fragrance line: Carol’s Daughter.

In this interview Lisa Price talks to me about her fascination with fragrance. The Carol’s Daughter Philosophy. Why did she choose Jada Pinkett Smith and Mary J. Blige as the faces for her brand, and what’s new with Carol’s Daughter.

Marta Walsh: When did your fascination with skincare begin?
Lisa Price: It wasn’t so much a love for skincare as it was a love for fragrance which began when I was a little girl. I started creating my own scents and creams because I loved to experiment—it’s always been a hobby and passion of mine.

MW: At what point did your love for making your own skincare products in the kitchen turn into a promising business?
LP: After some time of working as a writing assistant for The Cosby Show, and creating personalized scents and products for the cast, my mom encouraged me to make a small batch to sell at a local church flea market. I nearly sold out on the first day!

MW: What is Carol’s Daughter philosophy?
LP: Every Carol’s Daughter product I create is made with love, and inspired by my own life. Each product is truly unique and created especially for my customers, who are part of the Carol’s Daughter family. The idea is not just about looking good, but feeling good inside and out, comforting your body and spirit. Carol’s Daughter is also about having a strong sense of family as well as love and respect for yourself and others.

Summer is a beautiful time of the year: it’s nice and hot outside, we swim in the ocean or the pool, we get great skin and beachy waves thanks to sea water, get sun-kissed, and eat delicious and succulent fruits. Sometimes summer is SO good we don’t want it to go away.

My recent purchase at Nordstrom shoe department just before I took off to NYC this week was MICHAEL Michael Kors Jamesport Sandal. I’m in love with these shoes! Total runway material!!

Drugstore Superstar Products:Lubriderm Daily Moisture Line

I’m all about body lotions, and always on the look out for  ‘it’ products. I’ve recently tried Lubriderm body lotions and would classify them as Drugstore superstars! If you are looking for a great body lotion that works and is affordable, check out the Lubriderm Daily Moisture Line!

Lubriderm body lotions are very hydrating without an overpowering scent. Scent and how greasy a body lotion, play major part in my purchasing decision. They are deal breakers! I  like my body lotion either fragrance-free or scented very lightly. I do not want it to clash with my signature fragrance Dolce & Gabbana The One, or any fragrance I’m wearing:)

I also LOVE Lubriderm Advanced Therapy Hand Cream it’s so soothing and comforting to my hands.

I would like to introduce to you two latest Lubriderm products which are hitting the shelves this August (2009):

Lubriderm Intensive Skin Repair Ointment: Clinically shown to temporarily protect and help relive dry, chapped or cracked skin providing the long-lasting protection skin needs to heal itself like healthy skin does naturally. The lightweight, specially formulated ointment works immediately to form a protective shield on the skin to protect from frying of wind and cold weather, leaving skin hydrated and more comfortable. SRP: $4.99 1.75 oz tube.
