Beautycounter is a mission based company that launched in March of 2013.  Beautycounter’s mission is to get “safer products into the hands of everyone.”  You may be wondering what does that really mean.  It means that Beautycounter is about educating and informing consumers on how to read their personal care labels.  Beautycounter provides an option to choose safer products for you and your loved ones.  Beautycounter has skincare, body care, kids and baby line and cosmetics.

The last federal law to regulate the ingredients in personal care products was in 1938. To date, the US have only banned 30 ingredients, whereas the European Union (EU) have banned 1400.  Therefore, it is perfectly legal for personal care companies to include ingredients that are known to be harmful to our health.  With that in mind, Beautycounter created a Never List that comprises over 1500 questionable or harmful ingredients that is prohibited when formulating their products.  Beautycounter creates products with safety and performance in mind.  When Beautycounter launched in 2013, there were 9 products; however now there are 90 products and more in the works.

I’ve been using Beautycounter for over 2 years and started as a consultant in July 2016.  I decided to join as a consultant after my youngest daughter started Kindergarten.  I wanted to find a job that would be super flexible so that I can still focus on being a stay-at-home Mom.  I already loved using Beautycounter products, so I thought what better way to share the mission and help our family out financially.

If you’re interested in finding out more about Beautycounter, I’d love to chat with you.  I also have products on hand for you to try.  You may contact me through email dsaizbeautycounter@gmail.com or phone 415.517.0112.  Here’s my personal website for you to check out the products: beautycounter.com/dinasaiz  Looking forward to meeting you!

“Noa’s coaching led me to discover that I simply needed to give myself ‘permission’ to take the steps necessary to invest in myself more fully, take control of  my day to day decisions/actions and focus on the important work and doing so with confidence.”

Hello and WELCOME to Altered Aesthetics!

My name is Jen Santoro and I am the owner and senior artist at Altered Aesthetics. Growing up in Southern California I always had a passion for all things makeup and beauty. After getting my first tattoo, I found another passion, getting more tattoos! In 2013, when I moved to Raleigh I decided to take a different path in my career and found permanent makeup and microblading, which brought together my passion for makeup and tattoos.

I am huge advocate of continual education in this industry, and am continually refining and perfecting my skills through additional cosmetic tattoo and microblading courses. By learning new techniques I am able to bring new and exciting services to Altered Aesthetics.

Altered Aesthetics has been a woman owned Raleigh business for a year now! Big things are coming and we have added another artist Kelly Denhalter, who shares our passion with brows.  The goal of the team at Altered Aesthetics is to provide clients with an amazing set of brows that they will love and be proud of.

About Park Lane Jewelry

Founded in Chicago in 1955 by Arthur and Shirley LeVin, Jewels by Park Lane defines `The American Dream`. As the world`s leading direct sales jewelry party plan company, Park Lane proudly offers exceptional quality jewelry that is backed by an unconditional lifetime guarantee.

 

My Park Lane Story

I was introduced to Park Lane Jewelry in 2013 by friend from church. She invited me to go to this thing called a ‘Quarter Auction’. Well –  I won 2 pairs of earrings and saw some of the most beautiful jewelry I’d seen in ages. My friend introduced me to her sister – a Park Lane Fashion Director and I was hooked. I attended many more special events and purchased many more pieces outside of the events. I was – and still am- always amazed at how much I got for such a small amount of money.

In the second half of 2015 after having an expensive surgery, expensive kitchen water damage & repairs AND a shattered car window – none of which were fully covered by insurance, I knew I needed a way to make a little more income.

That same Fashion Director – now a Sr. Division Manager is still my ‘Park Lane Person’. I’ve been to many more quarter auctions and special events and even had a few of my own. She even helped me find the perfect jewelry ensemble for my daughter’s wedding!

She shared with me the unbeatable buying program for guests, the amazing & ridiculously generous hostess program and the outstanding Fashion Director`s income & perks – like free trips and a Mercedes! Add those to the jewelry I had to have and a really simple show demo and I knew I could do this – I could be a part of Park Lane!  I was impressed with the company’s values and work ethic – and of course how they reward their customers, hosts and their representatives.

I love showing our beautiful jewelry to everyone. Whether you are classic, trendy, bold or traditional in your jewelry style, I’ve got something for you. I am so excited to be helping my clients and hostesses understand all they stand to gain by our programs in a fun, interactive way! Please contact me to host your very own, very fun ‘dress up party‘!
