Hidden Gems: Meet Sue Greene

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sue Greene.

Hi Sue, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I studied graphic design in college. Over the years, I worked as an art director for big and small advertising agencies marketing everything from automobiles to pills to jeans to candies. About five years ago, I started an online beauty shop called Ohlolly.com with my sister Herra. We have long been in love with good skincare (Korean skincare in particular). We wanted our skin to be the very best it can be and believed K-beauty’s prevention-forward process was the way. One thing led to another, we soon had a proper e-comm site, and now we serve a big community of skincare enthusiasts (aka our customers) and enjoy all the new innovations that are coming out in the beauty market.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I am so thankful for my mom who’s given me the work ethic that I have today. She raised four kids as a single mom, so obstacles and challenges were never unfamiliar territories for her. Along with hard work she’s shown us that life is meant to enjoy and share with those around us. My sister and I are unusually close, most definitely because of the way we were raised. I wish I could say that running Ohlolly has been a smooth road (smile). There always seems to be a new challenge to work through even after five+ years of being in business. I get through each workday because I have my sister as my partner, my tiny but mighty team, and of course, our customers. They are all so amazing!

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
Ohlolly is a Los Angeles-based online destination that offers authentic Korean beauty products delivered right to your doorstep. We purposefully seek out products that are natural, plant-based and packed with unique ingredients that are difficult to find anywhere else.

When you shop with Ohlolly, it’s like spending time with a good friend, a friend who knows her skincare and always has great recommendations. Our online shop is carefully merchandised to make your experience effortless and enjoyable, with in-depth product descriptions and detailed images that let you know exactly what you’re getting. We even have tips on how to create your own customized Korean beauty skincare routine in just five simple steps.

It’s our promise and pleasure to always bring the latest beauty trends and skincare innovations from Korea straight to you. It’s a beautiful, continuous journey for us, one that we’re excited to experience with you.

We make shopping with us even more fun by constantly offering promos, sales, giveaways, rewards and more! We’d love to see everyone at Ohlolly.com.

We’d love to hear about any fond memories you have from when you were growing up?
I am not an outdoorsy person but my favorite childhood memory comes from a camping trip to the mountains. I remember looking up at the dark sky filled with so many stars that I thought would fall right out of the sky. I haven’t seen a sky like that since…
