I'm thrilled to help you attain and maintain the most flawless skin possible. I love the beauty industry and will work diligently to keep you well informed on not only tried and true regimens and products, but also share with you new discoveries in anti-aging, acne therapies, and all aspects of achieving luminous skin as well.

After 25 years in the beauty biz as an aesthetician, nurse in dermatology, skincare journalist, and providing expert advice for a major skincare website, I decided it was time to share my experience and secrets. I couldn't possibly do this alone though. 

Thankfully, I have the help from my good friend Gina, my skincare sidekick! She is a "skincare junkie," who has tried a zillion and one products. I joke with her and tell her she needs to start Beauty Anonymous meetings… My name is Gina….and I'm a skin productaholic! After battling acne for years, Gina now has a peaches and cream complexion and is eager to share her secrets for achieving clear, brilliant skin.

In addition to skin care, we’ll be covering all kinds of other topics related to health and beauty. The sky is the limit!

We all know how exciting it is when Oprah picks her favorites and shares them with us. Right? But YOU our fortunate readers are even luckier! Oprah may be rich, but we have connections! We get to try hundreds of beauty products. Ah yes, it's a tough job, but somebody has to do it. So I say you all deserve the benefits as well. I will no longer keep these secret weapons to myself. Enjoy and welcome to Beauty Research by Karen!

  • The Self-Actualized, Very Organized Woman with the Pretty Smile (sans the 15 rows of teeth!)

    Lori Greiner may be one perfectly organized and clever little Shark—but would she ever actually attempt swimming in my closet? Because that unorganized tiny little room of mine for clothes and shoes just may be the freakin’ proverbial Bermuda Triangle—and I’m worried we’d never even get her back out if she dove in! I’m not even sure what’s in the abyss...
