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.

Plackers Hobnobs in Hollywood

Jennifer Love Hewitt stops by Plackers at the Kari Feinstein Oscar’s Style Lounge.

• Hollywood loves a pearly white smile at any age, so it was only fitting that Plackers flossers, Brush-N-Learn musical toothbrushes and Grind-No-More Dental Night Protectors hung with celebrities at the Kari Feinstein Oscar’s Style Lounge at the Beverly Hills Montague Hotel on Feb. 24-25.


Actors including Jennifer Love Hewitt and Nolan Gould as well as writers, producers, celebrity stylists and entertainment media were on hand to try out the oral care products and take home gift bags.
