Since leaving New York two years ago now for the west coast, one thing that has remained true is my love for beauty and skincare. To say that I am a junkie would be an understatement. I try lots of products and brands and occasionally stumble upon something great. Cocokind Organic Skincare would qualify as great. Produced in San Francisco—where I now live—it was formed nearly three years ago by former finance guru Priscilla Tsai. A whip smart product of the Wharton School of Business, Priscilla spent her early career working in finance while nurturing her passion for skincare on the side. Finally taking the leap in 2014, she created Cocokind, which is distributed in more than three thousand outlets, including Whole Foods.
What makes Cocokind so amazing is that it is powered by superfoods. Her products contain such ingredients as matcha tea, chia seeds, kale, ginger root, aloe vera, among other ingredients. I had the pleasure of working with Priscilla as a model in a campaign for her new primer drops that silkily blend into the skin and the Cool In The Dark shade was a perfect match for me. It was nice to put something on my face that was, in fact, good for me, and that contained healthy ingredients. I am all about clean, healthy living—as anyone who follows my instagram can attest to—so this collaboration was a match made in matcha heaven!
Priscilla is an inspiration. Her passion for wellness, lifestyle and clean products are benefiting women everywhere and we're all lucky to be on the receiving end of her creations.
