The minute I met Annie Tevelin, the Founder and CEO, I knew she was the real deal. Outside of the fact that we are both midwest girls and have a plethora of similarities, I find her to be one of the most genuine people I know. She truly cares about the products she creates, her team and most importantly the massive amount of people who religiously purchase and trust her brand. Every product that Annie creates comes from a place of love and true understanding - she herself struggled for years with cystic acne and tried everything from derm approved to mass retail products, to no avail. With her own personal skin struggles in the back of her mind, SkinOwl was formed upon the below pillars:
- She wanted people to see results overnight.
- She wanted to provide more than just skin care, but deliver a core component of total self-care too.
- She wanted women to feel like they had a safe haven to ask questions and receive quality advice about their skin in what can often be seen as a confusing industry.
Needless to say - she accomplished what she set out to and we are true believers! SkinOwl encompasses everything we believe in at Laurel & Reed - their products are 100% vegan, cruelty-free an fragrance-free, with 95% of their packaging materials being recycled. We confidently recommend each and every product in their line, below find some of our staples:
