When Brooklyn native Lisa Price (daughter of—you guessed it—Carol Price) began mixing skin-care concoctions in her kitchen in the early nineties, her most ardent fans were friends and family members. Fast-forward nearly two decades and the entrepreneur’s products have found their way into Macy’s, Sephora, and the marbled bathrooms of A-listers like Tyra Banks, Beyoncé, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Brad Pitt. She has stores around the country (including two branches in Brooklyn), but this Harlem location, opened in 2005, is the flagship. With its whitewashed brick walls, blond wood shelves, and subtle fragrance, the 125th Street outpost exudes serenity akin to a spa. The handmade glycerin soaps and sea-salt body scrubs come in the shop's signature scents of Almond Cookie, Jamaican Punch, Mango Mélange, Ocean, Groove (a musky vanilla), and Ecstasy (a fruity medley). And in addition to a variety of moisturizers and other skin-care products (including Gordon's Shaving Lotion, which Price named after her husband), Carol's Daughter also carries hair-care products, like its popular Tui oil collection, and gentle creams and washes for children and mommies-to-be.
