Life wouldn’t be the same at TS HQ without the magic of Lano. And we have its founder, Kirsten Carriol to thank. After 15 years of running her own beauty PR agency, the Australian entrepreneur launched Lano in 2009 with one hero product: 101 Ointment. Today, the brand has over 20 products in their line, and we need all of them. Without further ado, meet Kirsten Carriol.
