There’s a new beauty line that has hit the scene. I had the pleasure of attending the launching of Yolanda Adam’s beauty line called Simply Yolanda. This woman, has her hands in EVERYTHING. Her music, her clothing line, and now… a beauty line that “improves the lives of others by improving the skin through products from high quality ingredients.”
You can imagine the life Yolanda Adams is living. Living a face-paced, high stress lifestyle and needing a product that has all her essential oils in one product. She felt a need to share a product that would “give the spa experience for less, while still solving common skincare issues.”
Experiencing the Simply Yolanda products were every woman’s dream. Massages, a chocolate fountain, a live band, and delicious food, were apart of the experience of knowing what type of woman is product is for. As I walked in the Simply Yolanda launch party, I felt like it was relaxed and inviting and I felt like it was about the customer, which is most important.
I had the pleasure of speaking to Yolanda Adams about her new beauty line. Here’s our short convo:
BOB: What inspired you to get in the beauty industry?
YA: Well, for me, it was a natural progression. I love for my skin to be in the best shape it can be in. And I found that there were products that were pretty harsh that I find that I need more moisturizing. So I said to my self, “Hmm, since there is a need, maybe I’m the one that’s supposed to fill it.” MDB group found a chemist and what oils and fragrances I wanted. I try my best to live as organic as I can. There are very few products that do that job of moisturizing the skin.
BOB: Do you think that Simply Yolanda is ONLY for Women of Color?
YA: I created for all women. I have all nations of fans so when people try the product I wont them to not think of it as a “color” brand, I want them to think of it as an authentic brand.
BOB: Why did you choose the name Love and Chocolate for your two body washes?
YA: Because those are the two things I love most in the world! I love 88% Dark Chocolate because I don’t like a lot of sugar.
BOB: I LOVE your dress (Wearing Herve Leger)! Who would you say your favorite designer is?
YA: Well, Herve takes good care of me! But I can’t say one because I have 500 of them! I’m a Kevin Hall, Donna Karan, Mark Bower, Carolina Herra, ….we can just go on and on. I love color! It makes you feel wonderful!
