Diaries of a Beauty CEO: My Week of Transformation: Skin, Soul, and Surprises!

Written by: Angela Kim



Time to read 2 min

I received an unexpected IG message this past week: “I'm shocked that all of this has come from a skincare company.”

It's a beautiful affirmation of our latest launch: the Transform Duo Experience, an online visioning course, and our new black-label elixir to soften and soothe the skin.

Savor Beauty isn't just a skincare brand; it's a fusion of my lifelong dedication to empowering women to master the art of beauty, brilliance, and balance.

We're redefining beauty from the inside out, merging skin and soul beauty in a way that's never been done before.

Read on to see how my first week in 2024 has been about transformation!

Sunday, December 31st - New Year's Eve Sparkle

I was all set for a dazzling New Year's Eve with a Manuka-Cherry beauty cocktail mask for that perfect pre-party glow. Midway through, my phone buzzed with a friend in crisis. 

Before I knew it, I had left the mask on for a full 30 minutes beyond its recommended time. My glowing session turned into a facial fiasco with a blotchy-red face staring back at me in the mirror.

Quick thinking led to a blend of Vapour foundation, Chamomile Calm Mask, and a drop of the new Transform Elixir. I gently brushed it on with the Vegan Mask Brush, and in an instant, my skin went from red to radiant.

At the party, surrounded by Rolex watches and diamond bling, it was clear: radiant skin is a woman’s best accessory!

Monday, January 1st - New Year, New Insights

Starting the year with a bang, we released the first session of the Transform Masterclass, an online visioning workshop aimed at self-growth and discovering our “Personal Elixir”.

It's a unique approach to setting goals and aligning with our vision and values that can happen at the New Year or anytime you crave a reset or refresh.

This week is all about choosing your one transformation word, and I was thrilled when my daughter joined me for the Masterclass.

Initially, she chose the word “Cozy,” but as we delved deeper, “Challenge” emerged as her transformative word, reflecting her desire for growth and intellectual stimulation.

It was a proud mom moment, especially when she said, “That was very eye-opening and enlightening to organize my messy thoughts using my experiences and goals. I think this will really help my 2024 vision!”

Wednesday, January 2nd - The Beauty of Transformation

Today, our Masterclass participants are already experiencing transformation by finding their transformation words, but a remarkable pattern is emerging: like my daughter, it's not what they expected. From Passion to Value, Refreshed to Fulfilled, and my personal shift from Abundance to Create—talk about a revelation!

I'm filled with excitement for what 2024 holds. With our Transform Elixir and Masterclass, we're not just changing skincare routines; we're changing lives.

What will your transformation be this year? I invite you to be part of our community, a space where we celebrate our individual and collective transformations.

Join us in the masterclass, embrace the Transform Elixir, and together, let's explore the beauty of our skin and souls.

The year is young—I can't wait to see where it takes us all. xx, Angela
