In search of the best organic skincare….
So I’ve just come back from an amazing 2-day weekend showcasing my best organic skincare and mineral makeup products at The Natural Exhibition held this year in Glasgow’s SECC. Despite the interruption of torrential rain and thunder, political rallies and train cancellations it turned out to be a fantastic event and it was lovely to see all and chat to those who dropped by the Odara Mineral Beauty stand. All the feedback and comments received was just amazing! I came home absolutely shattered but buzzing excited about our next event.
Everybody who visited the stand said they thought my set up was brilliant…that they loved the look of my brand, that the packaging was crisp, clean, classy and attractive…image is key! But, seeing passed the glossy wrapping and onto the important stuff, that is what’s inside, the positivity magnified.
I prefer the one-to-one, face-to-face personal chat and hands-on approach. In all my years of customer service there is no better way. While I batted my eyelids and did my ‘I’m not a salesperson but please give me 2 minutes of your undivided attention ‘ sales pitch all the lovely ladies who dropped by dived straight in armed with our fabulous makeup brushes and there was minerals, foundation and blusher, bronzer and veil powders flying everywhere! A beautiful sight! Not forgetting to mention also that when you place a bunch of skincare products in front of the female population especially only the inevitable can happen.
Rolling up their sleeves as if about to take on Mike Tyson, they did not hesitate for a second. Never mind ‘Show me the money!’ a la Jerry Maquire style, this was ‘Show me the cleanser!’ The lids were off. Bottles were being pumped before I could shout ‘GRAB THAT COTTON PAD!’ Noses and fingers probing and enjoying the lightly scented fresh delights of our Rich Rhassoul Exfoliating Mask and New You Night Elixer. Arms were glistening in the luminescent glow of our Back To Life Youth Serum and Double Drench Daily Moisturiser. Hands nourishingly softened and smelling sweetly of Marula Oil, Neroli, Lavender, Orange and Rose while they enjoyed a slice of Heaven sampling our Best Defense Cleansing Oil and toners. At times I really did not know where to look. ‘Get a room’! I thought to myself….a bathroom…as I could see the future unfold. Bathroom shelves displaying proudly our organic skincare products. Makeup bags stuffed full with our gorgeous mineral makeup, jojoba oil infused mineral foundation and beautifully pigmented sheer radiance blushes that joyfully shimmered under the bright lights. Faces of excited customers waking up in the morning springing out of their beds eager to lather themselves in the Odara Mineral Beauty name getting ready to face their busy day ahead with confidence and results! I humbly smiled inwardly to myself.
Telling my story has become second nature now. I’m not a salesperson, I always found that awkwardly difficult unless it was something I believed in and was passionate about. But as I rambled and my passion for my products exploded, sales came naturally and I could see then already a relationship beginning. A relationship with your skincare and a relationship with you. I believe in my products. And, from the reviews that landed in my inbox over the last few days, it shows that you do too! Here’s an extract from one in particular which can be viewed on our Facebook page…
‘Bought the most amazingly luxurious and beautifully scented cleansing oil and tropical mineral blusher from this lovely company! I can’t enthuse enough about the quality of these products….as a Decleor fan I have used many of their products and can honestly say this is the BEST cleansing oil I have ever used!!! I Urge everyone to try it!!! It even takes my Three layers of mascara off! Blusher is just gorgeous too, I will be back for more soon!! I can still smell the oils on my skin after cleansing and moisturising! 10 out of 1O for a company who really know what they are talking about!!!’
I am overwhelmed by this review and thank it’s author so very much for it.
