Have You Met Carol's Daughter?

Founded in a small kitchen in Brooklyn, New York, Lisa Price, a.k.a. Carol's Daughter is making a name for herself with her homemade beauty products - now available at Sephora.com

First there was Jada Pinket Smith, then Mary J. Blige - now moi!

OMG! The Almond Cookie scented products are divine! Almond, sandalwood, and vanilla make this scent combination so warm and sweet.  

The Body Cleansing Gel & Salt Scrub are in my shower this week. They are so rich - yet gentle, and smell - delicious!

I plan on trying a few or her goodies in the Ocean and Melon Melange scents next.

And if you are African-American, her hair products are rumored to be the best - secretly loved by some of the best in the biz! If you have tried any, please do let us know.

The Power of One Woman: Oprah.

Power. Success. Oprah.

They are pretty much one in the same when it comes to endorsements.

According to Christina Carlino, Philosophy brand creator, Oprah put Philosophy on the map. By selecting Hope in a Jar as one of her favorites for her "Favorite Things' shows in 1999, the brand, founded in 1996, has become a household name. Oprah subsequently has put Hope in a Jar on her list again in 2005, and included these other philosophy products as well: The Gingerbread Man Salt Scrub (in 2004) and an Amazing Grace Basket (in 2005) filled with all of the Amazing Grace products.

With no advertising whatsoever, some of Philosophy's products are number one sellers at Sephora, Nordstrom, and QVC. 

The power of Oprah, ladies - the power of Oprah!
