Beauty Nostalgia: Reminiscing With…Lisa Price
Beauty Nostalgia is a weekly column on Beauty Counter in which we ask influencers, tastemakers, and some of our favorite industry experts to wax poetic on the sticks, salves, and sprays that helped shape who they are today.
The Pro: Lisa Price, founder of Carol’s Daughter natural hair- and skincare.
The Product: “A product that I don’t use but has a warm place in my heart is Pond’s Cold Cream. It was something that my mother put on her face. When you’re a kid, you don’t realize where certain smells come from. But about two years after my mom passed away, I saw a jar in the drugstore and I purchased it just so I could smell her face. When I was younger, the scent was my mom—it was soft like her skin and cheeks. Now I can smell the different components, the beeswax and lanolin-like ingredients in it. But I wasn’t sensitive to that when I was a kid. My mom would apply the cream in the morning and night. She was really lucky to have clear skin that never got irritated. She didn’t do a lot of special facial things and was very no-fuss: She just washed with Ivory soap, put on her Pond’s Cold Cream, and never tried to cover her freckles with makeup. Now we have a product in our line called Face Butter that I use, and my mother used, too, before she passed away. But I still keep the jar of Pond’s in the medicine cabinet for the memory of her.”
