Founded right here in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan by Jess Tetu, Lia Reese Cosmetics and Skin Care line are all about celebrating the prairies. When I sat down to interview Jess, I asked her one, simple, question, “how did a small town girl from Craik, Saskatchewan decide to develop a cosmetic and skincare line?”, her answer was equal parts genuine and endearing. With a smile she said “I can’t explain the feeling of being able to make people’s day, every single day". This is just one of the many reasons why we're thrilled to be welcoming Lia Reese to Trusted Saskatoon in the Speciality Retail category!
Jess Tetu is an impressive Woman, she is a multi award winning entrepreneur and in addition to Lia Reese she owns two huge spas in Saskatchewan , Just For You Day Spa in Saskatoon and Just For You Day Spa in Regina (Both are Trusted of course!! ) . She also runs Lia Reese Academy that provides outstanding esthetics & Spa wellness training programs for qualified students.
The feel-good vibes from Lia Reese don’t end there!
When Jess was first approached with the opportunity to create custom cosmetic and skin care lines, it was of utmost importance to her that they did whatever they could to be environmentally conscious. Everything Lia Reese is Canadian made, and Saskatchewan inspired. There is NO testing on animals, and product development is executed animal cruelty free. Best of all, the hair used in their brushes is from animal rescue shelters, and is done with a totally safe brushing process. The names of the cosmetic products caught our attention straight away ...lipsticks called Crazy Boss Lady ( apparently this is reference to Jess herself !! lol) , Canadian Girl , Bunny Hug, Bridge City and Jess's Sangria ( a nod to her favourite patio drink!) Blushers called Peek-a -boo and Lustworthy and even the brushes ...angle Fluff Brush being our favourite!
Its so easy to get your hands on Lia Reese as it can be purchased online, and we happen to know first hand that their items are beautifully packaged and delivered with personal handwritten notes to every client !
A happy client shared " I am so impressed with the quality of the product I purchased online, and I was thrilled when the order arrived so beautifully packaged ...it was a real gift to ME! "
Go ahead and treat yourself - you deserve it! If you’re located right in Saskatoon so if you want to browse their products and try them in person, you can find them at Just For You Day Spa and Gift Studio, and there are solid plans to expand to other retail outlets throughout 2016.
Jess said the thing she's most excited about is:
“I really strongly believe that looking confident makes you feel confident. Healthy skin is the most beautiful make up you can wear, while the makeup itself should accent the most beautiful parts of who you are - inside and out”.
We couldn’t agree more, Jess, and we are so proud to have you from our hometown, and our home province, and mostly as the newest partner for The Trusted Saskatoon Directory.
