Jafra Rewards A Mom with Drive

Julie Chen and Holly Robinson Peete with Jafra USA president Connie Tang and entrepreneur Denise Portillo and her daughter.

• To celebrate women who have accelerated their personal and professional success despite challenges, Connie Tang, the president of the U.S. division of Jafra Cosmetics International Inc., appeared on CBS’ “The Talk” and surprised one deserving “mompreneur” with a brand-new Mercedes Benz GLK350.


The prize was part of a Feb. 25 segment highlighting self-employed mothers across the country, according to the company.


Jafra gave the car to Denise Portillo, a Los Angeles-based chef and caterer. Despite multiple setbacks and hardships, Portillo has shown determination to accelerate her success and realize her personal potential “in a manner which mirrors Jafra’s Mission,”

according to Jafra.
