About Me

by Lisa Heath

 A look at the blogger behind Cosmetic Sanctuary!

I’m Lisa, a 41 year old mom to a teenage son. I live right outside of Boston, MA with my son and my boyfriend.  I work full time as a patient coordinator at a stem cell regenerative therapy medical facility by day and as a blogger at night.  I have a huge passion for all things beauty related, and my massive cosmetic collection prompted my long time partner to create a website so that I could share that passion with all of you.


This is Nick Mariano, the other half of Cosmetic Sanctuary. The blog was Nick’s idea and everything going on behind the scenes is all thanks to him.  I’m basically the face of the blog and the primary content creator, while he does everything else to keep it up and running smoothly.  He offers input on the men’s products I show on Cosmetic Sanctuary, and sometimes contributes to our main posts as well.  He occasionally updates his men’s review site, Separate Opinion.

Cosmetic Sanctuary went live on December 31st of 2011 as a way to kick off the New Year.   I was actually very hesitant to blog (Nick was telling me to start a blog for nearly 2 years before I actually started!) but I’m happy I finally listened.

This blog is my outlet.  A way to express myself, give my opinion on products I purchase or receive for review, and in general – a space just for me!  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and if you have any questions, feel free to email me ([email protected])

If you are experiencing any site issues, feel free to email Nick ([email protected])
