Can we talk about something for a second? Direct Sales. Is it just me or do you agree that right now it feels as if EVERYBODY is selling SOMETHING. And it’s not a bad thing [if you stay off of Facebook] but all of a sudden I swear if you don’t sell essential oils (believer), you sell It Works! (love several of their products), if you don’t sell either of those you sell Rodan and Fields (obsessed), and if all else fails, you sell Norwex (most likely my favorite of all). I am not complaining, I am just confused. Like how did all of these products just suddenly show up out of nowhere and now everybody wants, and in my case, needs them? It’s most likely on my mind because last night alone I hosted a Norwex party (if you would like to place an order I would recommend starting with this set, or read when I wrote about my favorite products here. When checking out, please just select that you were invited to a party, and then type in Erin Schrader for the hostess. I hope you love it as much as I do!) I was approached about selling Young Living Essential Oils, used my Rodan and Fields Microdermabrasion Paste before bed, and then started freaking out when I realized my It Works! Confianza pills are all gone. I guess you could say I am a direct sales junkie. My husband adores this about me [also read: hates this about me]. BUT YOU GUYS, it’s all so good.
Let’s start with how much my skin has improved since using Rodan and Fields. I use the Microdermabrasion Paste and the Night Renewing Serum. Never before has my skin felt this soft and good. I know this only because I beg for Shawn to pet my face now to prove of it’s softness powers. The best part to all of this is that I now don’t feel insanely dead and disgusting when not wearing make-up [but just a little bit]. My skin looks fresh, clean, and even has a little more color to it. To prove it, I took a makeup-less photo shoot for you all. This will most likely never be done again so enjoy it while it lasts. Also, I should clarify that I did put a tiny bit of mascara and lip gloss on because without it, you would gag and I know how awful gagging is, so you’re welcome.
If it looks like I have foundation, blush, or an all-natural red nose, you would be correct–I do have a naturally red nose, but you would not be correct on the foundation or blush part. And that’s why I love this stuff.
One of my sister’s friends sells these items and after telling her I was hooked, she said we should give one of you the chance to win some so of course I was all like “omgggggg yesssssss” because that’s how I react to most things in life. Today she is giving away a “welcome Summer” package which consists of a mini facial kit, the foaming sunless tanner, and a pair of flip flops. This better mean that Summer is coming tomorrow, or else.
But before we dismiss, tell me–what’s your favorite product from a direct sales brand? Lord knows I need it.
