As a Watkins Consultant the most common question that I am asked by prospective consultants and customers alike is “Do you use the products?” My answer? Yes, I do. In any business in order to be successful you must use the products that you promote or sell, right? In my 6 years of experience I have found those consultants that do are the most successful no matter what business you are in.
I thought it might be fun to see just how many products I really do have in my home after working with the Watkins brand for so long. So I went around my house with a pencil and pad of paper. The number of products surprised even me! Not counting the different scents and styles of a given product I found that I use 35 unique products on pretty much a daily basis – if I counted each scent, flavor or style the number would be much, much higher. Rather than try to fit ALL 35 products into a single article I thought I would share my favorite products with you in a series of articles in the categories which you could find them on the website or in our full color catalogs.
|In this first article, I am going to focus on the All Natural Personal Care products.The Watkins personal care line has been certified by the NPA (Natural Products Association) one of the few companies on the in the market today that carry this seal. Watkins Natural Personal Care line of products are free of chemicals such as Diethanolamine (DEA), Ethoxylates (1,4 Dioxane), Formaldehyde Donors, Glycols, Mineral Oil, Monoethanolamine (MEA), Parabens, Petro Chemicals, Paraffin, Petrolatum, Phthalates, Polymers (Acrylates, Carbomer, PVP), Propylene Glycol, Silicones, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Synthetic Dyes, Talc, OR Triethanolamine (TEA).|
Some of my favorite Watkins All Natural Personal care items that I use each include the following:
Lavender Créme Bath – I use this both as a bubble bath and as a daily use soap. Just add a little to a bath puff. This creates a great lavender lather that is just luxurious in the morning to start your day. Because the product is natural it will not dry out your skin.
Aloe & Green Tea Shampoo & Conditioner – I have colored hair and since this is a natural shampoo I never have to worry about chemicals stripping the expensive color out. I also have thick hair as well. The conditioner works really well to get all the tangles out while leaving my hair soft and manageable.
Lavender Bath & Body Oil – this is my go to product to keep my skin super soft after my shower or bath. Plus I discovered the added benefit to this product is that it helps keep away the stretch marks as well. I am due in May and I have been applying the oil to my ever growing baby bump. So far so good!
Natural Peppermint Foot Cream / Foot Repair Salve – We all like to give ourselves a little pedicure pampering now and then right? Well these two products along with your favorite toe nail polish are perfect to do just that. First, use the Foot Cream to treat your feet to a super natural moisturizer. Then buff and paint your toe nails. Follow up with the Foot Repair Salve to ease those cracks and rough skin on your heel. Your feet will feel fabulous after you are done.
Natural Lavender Lotion – I use this lotion throughout the day on my hands and dry skin patches. The light lavender scent is really soothing for even my hectic day and the lotion is so light that it absorbs quickly allowing me to get back to my day without having to wait for my hands to dry like other more thick lotions. This lotion also comes in other scents including Aloe & Green Tea, Vanilla, Grapefruit, Coconut Milk & Honey and Mango.
Lip Tints (Stardust OR Berry Charming) – An essential in my morning makeup routine. They are 100% natural beeswax and a touch of peppermint plus there is just a hint of color. So I no longer need to spend time on a lip primer and then add a lip color. This is my favorite two in one helping me to speed along in getting ready and spending more time being productive in my day.
I hope you enjoyed learning about my favorite Watkins All Natural Personal Care products. These are just a fraction of what is available plus Watkins releases new products all of the time that I just have not had a chance to try out quite yet. For example, Watkins just released the 100% All Natural Baby Care line that I’m looking forward to using when my daughter arrives in May. I can’t wait!
