The ancient Greek philosopher, Plato, once stated that “Necessity is the mother of invention.” This statement is definitely true for Angel Cornelius, the founder & CEO of La Belle Femme Products. After failing to find natural products to use for her beauty regimen, Angel turned to her greatest resource, herself. She experimented with pure and simple ingredients to create her own skin and hair moisturizers. After perfecting her formula, she shared her creations with family and friends. It did not take long for her products to take off. And just like that, out of necessity, La Belle Femme was born.

La Belle Femme’s products are undoubtedly amazing. So amazing that Angel’s work attracted the attention of ESSENCE, a premiere fashion, beauty and lifestyle magazine. One of her bestselling products, the Pomegranate Kiss Body Butter, was featured in ESSENCE’s March BeautyBox.  Collaborating with this major brand caused her customer base to expand both nationally and internationally within a matter of months.

So when given a choice, try to use natural products. Not all chemicals are bad, but I simply don’t think you need to be a chemist to understand what you put on your skin or hair.” Amen to that.

So, do your skin a favor and try La Belle Femme’s Pomegranate Kiss Body Butter. The texture of this moisturizer is so rich and velvety.  It is absorbed easily and leaves the skin with a smooth finish and noticeable glow. In addition to this, the aroma is simply divine.  Somehow, Angel figured out a way to infuse this moisturizer with the fragrance of heaven!

You should also treat yourself to the Organic Honey and Oatmeal Facial Bar. It is the perfect facial bar because it moisturizes and exfoliates. Ingredients include unfiltered Texas honey and organic whole oats. While it was initially created as a facial bar, many customers use it for their entire body and you can too.


Remember, Angel did not intend to start a business. She simply wanted a solution to her problem. This solution turned a former healthcare administrator (who is over 50 years young) into a “self-taught beautypreneur.” Her amazing story proves that it is never too late to pursue your dreams.
