Karen Riley


Growing up in a small seaside town, Karen could almost always be found by the beach – or at home with her makeup, trying out new looks and practicing technique. Not much has changed since then — she still lives in that same seaside town, and her passion for cosmetics and skin care is more apparent than ever.

Before joining our team, Karen spent years honing her makeup skills and building her extensive skincare knowledge while working at Shoppers Drug Mart. Today, her experience serves her well; she shines in her role as Skincare Advisor in our SkinCeuticals Advanced Clinical Spa.

Outside of work, Karen will undoubtedly be found with her family: seeking adventure on the ocean with her two young girls or scouting new and exciting places to scarf some yummy food. She loves to cook, almost as much as she loves her work, especially since a little “chef” can almost always be found by her side in the kitchen.

PS: Karen’s true passion lies in helping ladies look and feel their best… and she sure is good at what she does.
