My name is Nancy C. Donahue and I had a very successful first act.

I was one of the first international super models of the late 70’s and 80’s, and graced numerous covers of American, British, French, Italian and German Vogue, Mademoiselle, Harpers Bazaar, Self and virtually every prestigious fashion journal in the world. 

I was represented by Ford Models and worked with the greats of the industry including Avedon, Penn and Newton . 


I was a go-to model for the European Collections and was often paired with my fellow supermodels of the time: Gia, Kim Alexis, Esme, Patti Hanson, Carol Alt, etc.

In the early 90’s, I moved to my hometown of Lowell, MA, to raise my son.

I became an NSCA Personal Trainer, a certified RYT yoga teacher and received a certification from the Physical Mind Institute for pilates.  

With these qualifications, I became a Fitness Director of a high-end country club.


In 2007 I co-founded BelleCore LLC and started the development of a breakthrough body-tool for the beauty/wellness industry with 4 Boston Doctors, M.I.T. and Harvard engineers. 

After 3 years development we launched our first product, the HoneyBelle® bodybuffer, and were immediately signed up for an exclusive deal with Neiman Marcus. 

In January 2011 we launched the EU version at Harrods, London as an exclusive for the UK market.

 For Summer 2011 we added the babyBelle® bodybuffer, a smaller but as powerful travel version, which can also be found at Colette, Paris and Harvey Nichols/BEAUTYMART, London.

 For beauty/wellness the bodybuffers benefits include helping to dramatically diminish the appearance of cellulite, exfoliate, rejuvenate and smooth the skin, increase lymphatic drainage, circulation and collagen function as well as decreasing edema, water retention/swelling.

  • Named Winner/ Neiman Marcus Beauty Awards/Tools & Gadgets 2011 and 2012 and inducted into the Neiman Marcus Hall of Fame 2013
  • Named “Best Anti Cellulite Technology” Harrods, London.


In 2012 we launched a Fit version of both bodybuffers dedicated to the fitness world which have gained a huge fan base amongst Elite athletes, Spartan obstacle course racers, CrossFit athletes, Triathlon and Marathon participants who use the bodybuffer for deep tissue muscle massage pre and post exercise, resulting in increased performance and speedier recovery from D.O.M.S. (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) .


BelleCore products can also be found at top spas and wellness centers across the USA and selected European locations.
