Let's Start From The Beginning
Michelle Oliva is the founder of POSH Beauty Essentials. She can confidently tell you she’s lived through enough harsh Massachusetts winter seasons to know that your perfect pout can swiftly change from soft and supple to dry and cracked in one quick minute! Our lips carry us through life’s more important functions (i.e., talking, eating, smiling, kissing, etc.), therefore they deserve to be treated like absolute royalty. For this reason, POSH Beauty Essentials’ main focus is to create sustainable, luxurious lip care products without the typical luxury price tag.
We’re determined to develop suitable products with modest pricing because of our founder, Michelle Oliva, who has always had a passion for advocating for the underprivileged. From a young age, she had volunteered, mentored, and even began her first non-profit when she was only 21 years old. Thanks to this passion, we are dedicated to giving back to organizations that help support underprivileged communities. This means you can feel good about being a PBE customer because when you support us, we support our neighbors! Furthermore, POSH Beauty Essentials is committed to fair pricing because we believe that everyone is entitled to healthy, beautiful lips.
POSH Beauty Essentials humbly began in 2014 in Michelle’s kitchen, with the purpose of organizing events to be able to give back to the community. Thanks to our amazing customers, we have expanded to a facility right here in the United States. Rest assured, our lip care is still handmade, with love and dedication being put into every product, ensuring a superior beauty experience every time. Along with love put into each product, we are committed to loving the earth through recyclable + reusable packaging on the outside and bare ingredients on the inside of each product made.
Every lip care product is shipped using recyclable materials and comes in a sustainably made jar that you can reuse long after you’ve gone through your scrub or butter! Additionally, we have limited all labeling to only that which is required by the FDA, keeping our impact on the environment small.
At PBE, we believe that the product itself should be just as natural and sustainable as its packaging. We use natural ingredients in each of our lip care products because we are positive that you don’t need chemicals, additives, or harsh ingredients in order to have irresistible lips.
"POSH Beauty Essentials creates rejuvenating handcrafted lip care products that will step up your guilt-free pout game! Our scrubs gently exfoliate your lips safely and naturally, leaving them softer and more dazzling than ever, while our Lip Butters provide a luxurious moisturized feeling once applied.
If you've used generic beauty products in the past, you know that they tend to have a strong odor and an unpleasant taste. Furthermore, they often contain ingredients that should not be used near your mouth.
Our natural formula is designed specifically to remove dead skin cells from the sensitive lip area and moisturize without suffering the unpleasant side effects of creams or peels. Try your favorite POSH Beauty Essentials lip care today, and discover just how gorgeous and alive your lips can be!"

POSH Beauty Essentials has partnered with Blessing Box LA to provide community members who reside in Southern Los Angeles, experiencing hard times, with daily necessities. BBLA's main goals are to end community deterioration, to fill the unmet needs of South LA residents, and to foster community participation. Michelle ran across this special box filled with items like dish soap, detergent, deodorant, masks, snacks, socks, and knew she needed to contact Shinay Watts, Founder of Blessing Box immediately to learn more about the program. This box is restocked on a daily basis and is open 24-hours a day for all members of the community free of charge.
Blessing Box is filled by donations from neighbors like you, PBE, and Shinay Watts. Because this box is open all day with free access to everyone, Shinay does ask community members to pay it forward by donating whatever they can, so she can continue to fill the box up for people in need. The blessing box is located between Slauson Ave and Arlington Ave in Los Angeles, CA.
Blessing boxes are a 24-hour immediate resource for those without a home, displaced, or struggling. I want these boxes not only to contain materials to keep you safe and healthy physically but also foster community conversation, to encourage asking, inspire the youth, a spot to story tell. We don't accept the narrative given to us and this community takes care of each other.
Just by purchasing a product with PBE, you are donating to this very special cause. But if you would like to go over and beyond, please visit BBOXLA's Amazon wishlist
