Since I’ve been awarded the ‘Honest Scrap’ award

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

Since I’ve been awarded the ‘Honest Scrap’ award which means I don’t participate in self-aggrandizement, I feel free to share this wonderful testimony with you. (By the way, 'aggrandizement' is my new favorite word!) I received this via email last week:

My name is Priscilla O'Briant and I want to tell you a story about your No. 145 Lavender Lotion. I guess it was maybe last Valentine's Day, [my brother] gave me a bottle of that lotion. I thought, okay - I'll put this on the dresser in the guest bedroom. I never opened it or used it. This Christmas, he gave me several gifts, one of which was ANOTHER bottle of that lotion. I thought, oh great, ANOTHER bottle of this lotion that I had never used. As we opened gifts, I placed it on the end table by the sofa where I sit when I watch TV. A few nights later, while watching TV, my hands were so dry they were itching. I reached over and grabbed the lotion and thought, well it's right here, may as well put some on. OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!! What in the world is in that lotion???!!!! It is absolutely nothing short of a MIRACLE!!!!! I use it two or three times a day now (of course every night while watching TV) and I want you to know that my hands don't even look like my hands any more!!!! My skin does not even feel the same. This stuff is AWESOME!!!!!! I have now started to use it on my arms, legs and decollete'. I would put this on my face but I'm not sure if I should since it has the lavender in it! Listen - I have spent hundreds, I'm sure thousands of dollars in my fifty-plus years on skin care products, specifically, lotions. I have paid good money for what is claimed to be the best you can buy. I have bought products from health food stores, I have purchased Estee Lauder, Mary Kay, Clinique, just to name a few, plus I have purchased expensive products in the malls which were supposedly made from products from the Dead Sea. Honestly - none of them REALLY work. Your product is simply the best and when I finish this e-mail I will go to your website to see what other products you offer. It's just a shame that we are all spending so much money on products that do not work (basically we are just paying for the name) when you have such an unbelievable product that, comparatively speaking, few people are aware of. Not only does it work - it smells wonderful and it feels GREAT on the skin. Thank you very much for offering such a superior product. I wish you much success and prosperity in the New Year!!

Thank you, Priscilla, for taking the time to share this with me. I love hearing from our customers! I take feedback very, very personally because so much blood, sweat, and tears have gone into developing our product line. People often ask why we don’t have more products in our line, and I have to explain that it takes me months, if not years, to develop each product. I am VERY particular and will only come to market with the absolute best. Our lavender body lotion is called No. 145 for a reason – it took 145 formulations before I said, “This is the one!”
