Background

Founded by two Dutch entrepreneurs

Dennis and Patrick  – SKINLIFE is considered the best niche perfumery in Portugal and leads in personal and in-store beauty counselling services. Prior to opening SKINLIFE, Dennis had worked for several luxury cosmetic brands, such as La Mer, later becoming a manager for a large chain of beauty niche stores in the Netherlands. Patrick was previously the head makeup artist for Chanel Benelux for more than 5 years. Bringing his Portuguese origins from his mother’s side allowed him to speak a little of the Portuguese language that facilitated the transition into the world of SKINLIFE Portugal. Today, Dennis plays a large part in the creative process of both brands, while Patrick focuses on their expansion and public relations.
