Here I Grow Again!

18 Aug


I love the beauty industry! And it’s a good thing, as I have spent most of my adult life entrenched. The years I have spent working in salons, spas, & med spas have shaped how I see & experience the world around me. I know that I KNOW true beauty comes from within, & that helping people with their image & developing meaningful relationships is where the real reward is in what I do.

In Washington State, I am a licensed Cosmetologist, Esthetician, and Esthetics Instructor. Over the last 16 years my focus has been on skincare & makeup. I love the luxurious experience of spa treatments & the results derived from treatments found in med spas. My ideal treatments blend both worlds.

Over 10 years ago, I was introduced to Jane Iredale Mineral Cosmetics and fell in love! I have used & sold JI in every med spa in which I have been employed. From 2008-2011, I was a freelance makeup artist on Iredale’s Artistry Team in WA State.

In 2012, I caught the Nerium bug & have been all a-twitter about it ever since. My clients & I have been experiencing fantastic results with this breakthrough skincare line.
I have joined forces with my dear friend & partner in Nerium, Jennifer Solsten, to form The Real Beauty Team. We are using our backgrounds in the beauty & skincare industries, combined with life experience, to build up & encourage women of all ages.

Victoria’s Academy offered me a teaching position in their esthetician program, with the position starting September 2013. So exciting!
I love writing blog entries & articles about people, places, products, & treatments I discover in the skincare & beauty industries.
What my colleagues and friends are up to is of great interest to me as well. Please share!

NeriumAD, What’s The Deal?

18 Aug


Do a Google search on NeriumAD, a natural, botanical, anti-oxidant skincare line, and all kinds of things come up, some good, some bad, some downright cuckoo!

I am licensed in cosmetology, esthetics, and as an esthetics instructor. Most of my skincare experience has been working in doctor’s offices/med spas, and I’ve also worked in upscale spas, as well as independently. I was HIGHLY skeptical of Nerium, mostly because it is sold through network marketing, and I just was not familiar with that business model.

In starting to use Nerium, I had some breakout and irritation initially. Turns out I, little miss esthetician, was using it incorrectly! Once I began using as directed 10 months ago, I have not looked back. I loved the product so much and saw such nice results on myself and my friends, that I decided to sell it. Most of my skincare clients are loving it. Many of us are able to have facial treatments less often now because the Nerium is doing wonderfully on our skin. (As an example, in these first 10 months of Nerium use, I have given up Botox, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and IPL, so that in my first year of Nerium I and my customers would know that my results were from Nerium, not from anything else I was using or receiving). I also gave up my other powerful physician strength products.

Nerium is an anti-aging product and is marketed to work on fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, AND it is firming! In my experience in skincare, there is no one product that fits 100% of the people, but Nerium works for more people than most products do.

I’ve seen complaints about the cost – too high, too low. Compared to med spa and even department store products, Nerium is on par cost-wise, often times less expensive. Additionally, and this is huge for me, this is the only skincare product I’ve ever been able to earn for free, and the only skincare product I’ve ever been able to help my clients get for free.

Not sure what people mean by Nerium being a scam. Like any other product, you pay for it, you receive it. When I place orders for other skincare products in the spa, I have to pay for them. Same with Nerium, only with Nerium, I paid for my initial 5 bottles, now I just pay shipping on the free inventory I’m earning. I don’t have to carry a stockpile of product, as most of my business can be conducted through online ordering.

Networking marketing is not for the faint of heart, it takes a committed effort over time. But working hard in order to achieve that residual income is kind of a no brainer in my book.

There is no harm in giving Nerium a try. Most brand partners (reps) will let you sample the product. But even if you purchase at retail or the reduced autoship price without trying Nerium first, you receive a 30 day money back guarantee. Autoship is easy to adjust the dates on or to cancel altogether with no penalty. No risk is involved.

Interested in ordering product?

Does the business opportunity appeal to you?

I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
