Some of you may know me as 'radiocarissa' as I've spent the last 12 years of my life working in radio, but I'm not here to talk about radio. While I love the entertainment industry, I love the world of beauty so much more. I struggled with minor acne as a teen and couldn't get rid of it no matter how clean I kept my face. Even my dermatologist put me on an acne medication that didn't produce the results I was looking for. It wasn't until I was taking chemistry courses in college that I realized the chemicals (ingredients) in our skincare products affect our biology and skin's chemistry. I began to apply my knowledge of chemistry to the skincare products I was purchasing and my skin quickly cleared up. I also had help from an incredible esthetician, Iysha, who taught me how to identify what my skin needs and how to apply products. Now I spend most of my time researching and experimenting with the latest beauty trends, products, and techniques that I share across my social media. Whether you're looking for product recommendations, skincare and makeup tips, skin treatments, or overall beauty advice, welcome to my beauty blog - you've come to the right place.
In addition to beauty, I enjoy exploring and supporting local businesses throughout New Jersey and New York like bakeries, coffee shops, medispas, and more. If there's a small business you'd like to see featured, send me a note below!
