Over a year ago I started researching, gathering information and documenting my thoughts and plans to open my own skincare company. I was an NYPD Detective now turned entrepreneur. To be quite honest, I was apprehensive but determined to figure things out, learn as much as I could through studying products and ingredients and trying to make good decisions. I’ve always had a passion for good skincare products and I was now on a mission to manufacture my own premium natural and organic skincare products. I wanted my products to be chemical free and safe for all skin types.
I researched numerous manufacturers in the USA looking to make sure they met the criteria I had envisioned for my company and my products. Fast forward to October 2018 and my website was launched. My first six products were out there, orders were flowing in and I was so proud. Then the real work began, marketing them. I will be writing in my blog about my products and why I feel they are an investment that you can consistently rely on.
As I continue to blog I’m also going to answer frequently asked questions such as: How did the name Lkins come about?
My husband nicknamed me “kins” or “Leeniekins” and that’s how it started. When it came time to come up with a name it was “go with Lkins Skincare” it was a joke which stuck-and here we are. Plus we called our logo a Long Island Original-Natural and Organic. I liked that! Pretty Original!
I would like to talk a little bit about my products. One of my top sellers is the Coconut & Honey Aloe Cleanser. It comes in a 4oz pump bottle. It’s a light foaming gel that’s a very gentle and hydrating cleanser. When I cleanse my face I use about 3-4 pumps and it does the job. I message the cleanser in a circular motion, avoiding my eyes and rinse it off with lukewarm water. After drying my face with a cotton washcloth, i feel so refreshed, my face does not feel stripped at all. The fabulous part of all is that this cleanser is all natural and smells so great, so clean. I love it! I personally think it’s the Manuka Honey and Coconut Oil. I follow up my routine with Lkins Hydrating Toner, which I will talk about further as I describe my products. These two products are designed to be used in conjunction with one another. The great part about our products is that they can work for all skin types and that they are paraben free. Additionally, they work for ages 18 and older.
After cleansing my face I use our Hydrating Toner. Why do I think our Toner is so great? It’s so good because it’s gentle, alcohol free and does not leave your skin dry or feeling stripped. The Toner is in a pump container as well.
Another popular product is our Vitamin C Eye Gel. After cleansing your face apply a small amount of this gel around the delicate eye area. It will go on wet and feel a bit cool but will quickly absorb into the skin. It is very hydrating and is designed to help with diminishing dark circles, puffiness and lines otherwise known as “crows feet” it is a product that needs to be part of your daily regimen. I think you will love it!
Do you exfoliate as part of your regular routine? It is so essential as it helps rid the skin of dead skin cells. It’s also invigorating because it leaves your body feeling polished and glowing. I recommend our Organic Sugar Scrub as a body scrub, not to be used on your face. It is loaded with Raw Can Sugar, Sunflower Oil, Shea Butter and Coconut Oil to name a few. How can you go wrong? Turn your home into your own Spa.
