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 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 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 US, tested their products looking to make sure they met the criteria I had envisioned for my company. 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’s 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 gel that’s a very gentle and hydrating cleanser. When I cleanse my face I use about 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. The great part about our products is that they can work for all skin types and that there 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, does the job and does not leave your skin dry. The Toner is in a pump container.
