OCCUPATION: Founder of Romer Skincare
Meet Lauren Rome. A lover of community, the environment, and clean skincare. Born on the East Coast, Lauren spent the last decade in New York City grinding in the tenacious environment of Wall Street. A woman on the go, she tried countless skincare products but nothing seemed to work to combat the stress which led to breakouts, dark circles, and dehydrated skin. Empowered by the idea that she could help people feel their best, she embarked on a mission to create the solution she and others needed. Enter Romer Skincare. Lauren is now living full time in Chicago with her husband, a proud Mom to a golden retriever and her skin has never looked better. She spends less time trying new products and more time on the things that matter. Lauren is continuing to build a community around her brand and helping others discover the joy of healthy, beautiful skin.
What is your favorite “bite”?
My favorite bite is popcorn. I’m a sucker for anything salty.
How did you “shake” the industry?
I’m an outsider which is how I’m shaking the beauty industry. The benefit is that I truly know what my customer wants. Coming from Wall Street, I’m very direct. My customers want products that are simple yet effective! And not only do they work for you, they work for your partner too!
What is the first adjective you think of when you think of your butt?
Firm! Especially because I’m using my CBD butt balm every night!!
What does unapologetic mean to you?
Unapologetic is true bravery! The courage to break the mold and not say sorry for being authentic and honest... that’s powerful.
