You may have seen the very gorgeous model/actress Monica Olsen peering down at you from a billboard in Times Square or gracing the pages of Elle and Cosmopolitan. She has done ad campaigns for De Beers, Helmut Lang, Thierry Mugler and had a role in The Hot Chick, an Adam Sandler film. On top of all of this she is also the founder and creator of SkinByMonica, a line of organically and environmentally pure skin care, hair care, spa products and more. We just gave rave reviews to her lip plumper! Monica told us some of the secrets of her very successful business and the inspiration behind her products.


How have you taken your experience with acting and modeling and used it to build a successful beauty brand?

Monica OlsenAs a model and actress I have lived and traveled all over the world. I kept a beauty diary throughout my travels where I was privy to tips from the world’s beauty experts which I have incorporated into my line. This knowledge is not limited to US beauty industry professionals, but overseas professionals as well. Also, having worked in the fashion industry, I understand how women think and what they want which has helped me fill in the gaps in the beauty industry. I understand the marketing aspect of things, but in addition, I am keen on providing the highest quality product for the consumers. As someone with sensitive skin, modeling was difficult in the sense that even when the makeup artists used baby wipes to remove my makeup, the wipes irritated my skin. Now, makeup artists are using my BUTT-SO-SOFT Diaper Rash Care Spray, which contains 100% pure Squalene Oil, which has the highest concentration of Vitamin E available, to remove makeup for their sensitive clients. This line is not time consuming because as a busy mom, I don’t have time to use 5 or 6 different products in my daily regimen.

What is your inspiration behind your products?

My children are the inspiration for SKIN by Monica. The more research I did regarding natural and organic products, the more I realized there was a niche and void that I sought to fill. My line was inspired by and emerged naturally during my first pregnancy. During this special time, I was not able to find natural and chemical free skincare products that met my high standards and I refused to compromise. The line maintains products specifically designed for women, men, and babies and is appropriate for all skin types.

What is your favorite product?

RESTORE MSM Facial Cleanser because I really wasn’t fond of cleansers out there. My Facial Cleanser contains methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), a naturally occurring nutrient found in our bodies. MSM provides sulfur, a vital building block of joints, cartilage, skin, hair and nails, which support many vital biochemical processes in the body, including energy production. A close second and third are PLUMP for Sexy Lips and THE CURE Wrinkle Reducer, respectively. PLUMP is an amazing lip plumper and THE CURE caters to women and men. It’s very moisturizing and has the clinically tested and scientifically proven levels of Argireline, Matrixyl, and CoQ10.

Tell us about SHIELD AND SHINE

SHIELD AND SHINE is a hair protein which absorbs into the hair, thus protecting the hair shaft from chemical and/or heat treatments. It’s also a great styling product for multi-textured hair. SHIELD AND SHINE guards the hair cuticle by creating a protective barrier between the hair shaft and any products, both natural and chemical. This means that color treatments, relaxers, perms, or other chemically intrusive treatments will not cost you your healthy hair. SHIELD AND SHINE is appropriate for all hair types and adds great shine. Several celebrity stylists use this product on their VIP clients.

Anything to add?

SKIN by Monica is a marriage between science and nature. The line is unique in that the percentages of ingredients that are used have been clinically tested and scientifically proven to provide the results that consumers seek.
