Vibrant Skin: Karisma Skincare from founder Lisa Mazzarella

What is Karisma Skincare?

Karisma Skincare ( is simply Beauty Beyond Skin-deep. Karisma is dedicated to creating superior, clean, high-performance transparency that transforms your skin by using only the highest quality ingredients that work — so that you can feel more beautiful a confidant in your skin.

Fed up with buying high priced products only to discover they were toxic and ineffective, Lisa Mazzarella decided to make her own – this is how Karisma Skincare was born. After meeting Lisa Mazzarella in person, there is no one better to formulate the skincare line. She’s extremely passionate about what she does, getting it right, and producing a high-performance product.

“Feeling confident and beautiful in my own skin has been a long time coming, but let me tell you I finally got there and Karisma High-Performance Clean Skincare products are a result of my journey,” noted Mazzarella. In the pursuit of helping herself and others achieve flawless, healthy, and youthful glowing skin, Lisa has spent long hours and late nights dedicated to the science of masterfully perfecting formulas. She makes non-toxic, clean products without harsh chemicals. Lisa uses ingredients that nourish, heal, repair, and renew – actually bringing back skin’s youth.

Karisma Skincare believes in 100% transparency, and they have rebelliously pushed the envelope of the industry. Lisa’s team and Lisa herself – rigorously scrutinized every single ingredient to ensure the highest standard of clean, nontoxic, results-driven products that WORK.

The Karisma Skincare experience is all about intense nourishment — drenching skin with deep revitalizing nutrients and long-lasting hydration for stunning skin.

The Result

The whole process has been a labor of love and deep commitment. Karisma is not just a Skincare company – it is a personal mission to make sure we all feel beautiful and confident in our own skin.

When Gemma Magazine had a moment, we had the fantastic opportunity to speak with Lisa Mazarrella in person about her line.

What inspired you to start your own line of skincare? You had an extremely successful law career?

I felt that my skin was getting flat and dull, and I had tried everything. Nothing was working. Finally, I took it to research the skincare industry and the specific ingredients used in various products. I did not want to use random products for “high-performance” results. I decided to go with essential oils and wanted to feel good on the outside –the way I felt inside. I also wanted one product with all active ingredients to do the job versus a variety of serums. Within four days, most women notice a change! I use the highest quality and pure ingredients and started with issues that I was struggling with: acne/blackheads, dark circles, and fine lines, and wrinkles.

How did people start to find out about your line?

I brought it to my doctor’s office, my aesthetician, and some of her clients expressed interest. I also got it to my medspa (who wanted it) and my friends — who are always the real test. The results were very positive. When I commit to something, I dedicate all the way, and I want to make sure it turns out correctly. I took the time to look, study, and formulate what specific ingredients would help each oil conquer various skin issues.

What are some of the ingredients that you use in your facial oil?

Well, vibrancy is key. We all want the “glow.” Karisma is anti-aging skincare but teenagers use it as well to prevent breakouts. The facial oil deeply moisturizes. It also revitalizes and illuminates tired, dull skin without an oily shine. It also smooths and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The ingredients are Jojoba Seed Oil, Pomegranate Seed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Lavender Oil, Vitamin E, and Carrot Seed Oil.
