Boss Babes Vol. I: Lauren Napier

With National Women’s Entrepreneurship Day just a short while ago, (literally a couple of weeks), I decided to start a new series on my blog about female entrepreneurs entitled Boss Babes.

This series is meant to encourage, inspire and showcase some of the phenomenal women is business and give you a sneak peek into their lives through candid conversations and engagement.

With out further ado I present Boss Babes Volume I with none other than Lauren Napier.

Lauren Napier is the founder and creator of Lauren Napier Beauty, a brand of sustainably packaged, individually wrapped cleansing wipes that are made of the highest quality botanical ingredients.

I sat down with Lauren to dig a little deeper into the woman behind such an amazing brand and got to discuss some of her beauty secrets, inspirations and future career plans.  

1. Where did the concept of individual packaged makeup wipes come from? I was traveling and my puff package of wipes dried out. At that moment I developed a concept and took it straight to a manufacturer. 

2. What sets your brand a part from other makeup wipe brands? The packaging designed is for travel and Lauren Napier Beauty’s ingredients are botanical rich and deep clean skin. 

3. What’s or who is your biggest inspiration? I am my biggest inspiration. I have to be perfectly honest. There are days that I don’t want to get out of bed - but I do! This work is hard, very hard. I had a great idea, I put my idea into action.  I created a brand from my tax refund and today it is sold in over 22 countries. I am shocked day in and day out. I want to see where this goes. So I am inspired every day to keep going. 

4. When you fly, what are must haves for your in-flight travel bag? I fly a lot. I am an expert packer, I have a double sided blanket (so I know what side touches my body and what touches the seat). I have a bottle of water, sanitizer, my headphones, phone charger and an apple. As far as beauty goes, I must have La Rose by Lauren Napier rose water infused makeup remover wipes, Beneath Your Mask face oil, a Luvscrub for my body and a satin pillow case. 

5. If you could trade places with one person for a day who would it be? I would trade places with the person at the IRS who has access to Trump’s taxes. 

6. Outside of Lauren Napier wipes, what other projects are you curating or working on? I am so excited for the products that are to come. I am very excited but everything is in development so I can’t say - but I know you’re all going to love what’s next. 

7. If you were stranded on a deserted island, what 7 things do you have with you?  Let’s say I were stranded in the most ideal conditions. More like Madonna in “Swept Away” not Tom Hanks in Cast Away” I would have my Cloth and Paper day planner, because I use to write down my ideas. All of the books on the list of books that I am supposed to be reading (I would finally have time). Hopefully, my hair would still be braided so I’d have Girl+Hair for my scalp. An unlimited supply of olive oil. Cleanse by Lauren Napier would absolutely be in tow. My hot water bottle and Double bubble bubble gum. 

8. What’s your daily beauty routine? Depends on the day. The Lauren Napier Beauty philosophy is, “there is beauty in taking it off.” I am an ultra minimalist. I like it easy and effective. So I cleanse with Natura Bisse facial cleanser, moisturize with Sunday Riley or Mario Badescu (depending on the time of the month and weather). I use NARS sheer glow foundation in Macao, Anastasia Brow powder, a cream blush, Milk mascara, tinted color corrector or Wander Beauty on my lips. / At night, I am all about cleansing oils, then I use Flaunt by Lauren Napier to remove excess mascara from my lids. It’s gentle and nourishes my eye area. I moisturize my face and dab olive oil on my lips for hydration.
