Health Beauty & Wellness Awards

Health Beauty Awards

Health Beauty & Wellness Awards

How does accepting this validate your accomplishments and journey for success?

Many of you recently took part in Voting for Essentially Lili’s Health Beauty and Wellness Awards. Whilst I had never been nominated for anything before, I was beyond ecstatic when you all jumped in to vote for both my business and me as a person.You have NO idea how delightful it is to receive and read the screenshots, comments and testimonials.You made me feel validated, as the Magic Pot creator who has a purpose for helping you feel confident about yourself!

On the 9th of March, the deliberation by the panel was to take place. Later that evening, the quick announcement was made! ‘Best Online Skincare & Wellbeing Retailer Switzerland’ had been awarded to Essentially Lili.

You can ask my kids, I read it out loud, arms in the air ‘YES’, so happy and excited.I mean, seriously, that’s amazing right? I took a copy of the announcement and shared it with my family and closest before posting it on Social Media. How exciting to receive this award! I felt like my hard work had been recognised, first and foremost, by You, my Clientele, and then by the Selection Panel.

This is where my Integrity becomes the foundation of who I am, and what I represent about my Brand – being honest and true for what I make, what I do, how I price and take care of my customers. I was over the moon about receiving an Award.I loved my clientele’s testimonials, votes and Goodwill

When I asked you to vote for my business and your products, it’s not something that anyone just does without wanting to. Providing your testimonials and reasons why you love the products, explaining how these made you feel, whilst sharing your personal experiences is exactly that – intimate and special to you and me.

” All Our Dreams Can Come True If
We have the courage to pursue them”.Walt Disney

And for this reason, I want to celebrate YOU for your votes, all 115 of them, the email messages of support, encouragement, and appreciation which were received with happiness and extreme humility on my part. These are some of the screenshots and posts that were shared by You with me. Sent from Switzerland:

• Yes definitely! I would wholeheartedly vote for you! I have been sharing the love for your products – sharing is caring! – Anete B

• Every night when I look at what’s left of my Evanesce Balm, I think, “I have to respond to Lili and make another order.” … And I wanted to let you know that I did vote for you! – Christine G

• Best natural skincare products as my skin feels and looks its best with #essentiallylili products. Loyal customer for over 2 years for myself, a 40 yo female (no hormonal breakouts with using these products), a teenage son (controls any acne with magical serum) and a preteen daughter with very sensitive skin that loves sunflower cleanser and youth balm to keep her skin from never drying out! – Diana F

• Hi, done! All the best!!!! You deserve to win! – Judith C

• I have done it. Most welcome. My favourite products, I am happy to do it (vote) – Suma P

• Can I refer to the Go Molly product or would it not fall into the beauty category? This one literally saved my sanity, but I can also refer to the hand cream no problem! – Karolina P

• I have been using Lili’s products for close to 2 years. They are simply amazing. I use the Nourishing Face Balm, Geranium Hand Cream, Lime Foot Repair, Renew Balm and Mandarin Lip Balm. They are made of all-natural ingredients, and they make my skin super soft. My favourite is the Nourishing Face Balm, and I will never use any other face cream again! Apart from being soothing and effective, I love the way they smell… it’s so invigorating to put them on, and I feel like I’m getting spa treatment every time. I can only recommend Essentially Lili products. Hope you win!- Kamali W.

From Abroad:

• Both Miriam and I have voted for you of course. Your products should be in all the shops! -Irit P

• I have nominated you earlier. I mentioned the products and how I’ve moved from Estee Lauder and how it’s improved my skin. Good luck lovely. – Claudene S

• I have known Lili since she was fighting her own personal battle with sensitive skin way before she set up Essentially Lili. She was then, as she is now, totally committed to finding the answer to problem skin. She is passionate about natural products and the healing/benefits of using them. Essentially Lili is an extension of Lili herself, making wonderful soothing products for herself and her close friends, who were going nowhere with conventional treatments…. Adding, You’re very welcome Lili, You deserve it, I only said what I know to be true. Rose R

• I have voted for you and praised your products to the rooftops – Dave

• Not only is Lili a beautiful soul, but she is also passionate about her natural beauty products, helping anyone with whatever skin issues they may have. From babies to the older generation, Lili will use her extensive knowledge and if need be, create a cream or serum that will help remedy any skin problem. I have used multiple products and absolutely love them all.I wholeheartedly vote and support Lili @essentiallylili – Lili Z

This is what I want to remember about the whole Health, Beauty and Wellness Awards Experience. Whilst for me it was and still is important to feel validated, the most important people for what I do is You.When your kids select my product over the other choices at home, or when you tell me you need to stock up in case I take a break, your request for my brand and loyalty are so much more than anything else. Your wonderful messages that encourage, support and push me to keep doing what I do, knowing that one more person is feeling great about themselves with the products chosen to overcome skin concerns.

If you Wish It, Dream It, Love It – Do It.

This has been the quotation and moto I loved from the beginning, in 2015, when I first found it on the boxes that became part of my market stand. This resonated with me, assisting the push to keep trying, experimenting, creating, sampling, collating feedback, sometimes scrapping and starting again. I felt compelled to study and learn, to expand my knowledge, to become the expert and know my ‘stuff’.I want customers to feel confidence when coming to me for help – this is part of the essence of what I do, day in and out.

My goal is to continue making the products that you and I love, to be part of your journey of confidence, self-love, and ultimate well-being. Whilst I could harbour on my initial disappointment, the Award you gave me and how you made me feel validated is worth a whole lot more. For that, I am eternally grateful.

    How to Treat Cystic Acne in your 30’s

    Au Zurich

    How to Treat Cystic Acne in your 30’s

    And get your skin feeling fabulous, with that all-natural glow again.

    You can remember your teens like it was yesterday – going through your body’s changes, hormones, studying, having that crush on that cutest boy/girl at school.Some of us had those awkward braces to wear for straightening our teeth. Does that ring a bell?Probably the worst part about our teens is the acne breakouts.Just when you think it’s all sorted, another one rears its ugly head and screams at you when you get up … ‘ GOOD MORNING I AM A NEW ZIT & I AM HERE RIGHT ON YOUR FOREHEAD, NOSE, AND CHIN FOR EVERYONE TO SEE’ … Oh-M-Gee, Totally Cringeworthy.

    How did you feel during those times? Embarrassed, self-conscious, frustrated, worried about what people were going to think of you? What was the first thing you would do? Ok, 3rd thing, because the first thing was probably want to crawl back into bed and hide, the 2nd thing you wanted to do was POP IT and so the 3rd thing you wanted to do was cover it up.

    But what if you’re a boy or as we say in Australia, a young fella, bloke? You can’t put on foundation or cover-up without being laughed at… or can you?Some kids were ‘lucky’ when the didn’t get so many on their faces, but they had them on their shoulders and back.During the wintertime when no-one sees them, it’s no big deal, but when the summer arrives, that hidden factor suddenly comes to the surface for everyone to see.

    My parents grew up in Sicily, Italy, and were eating a lot of whole foods from the land, which was not processed or spoilt by Commercial pesticides.When we were teenagers, the association with the foods we were eating with allergies and skin problems were not linked.It’s ironic because our parents had such great skin with a natural, healthy glow about them, whilst the generation after us were showing a different story.Many were overweight and their skin was showing more spots, acne or other problems.

    Whilst I write this, I want you to understand that I was one of those teens – overweight, spots, eating secretly when no-one was watching and trying to overcome not only issues like Acne but Eczema as well.

    Today I have noticed that this ‘teen cycle’ is happening again for those in their ’20s, ’30s and often in the ’40s. I’m sure if you hated it then, you will be feeling even more frustrated and self-conscious as an adult with kids looking like a teenager, right?But why is it happening? There are a number of reasons why:

    The foods we eat – Sometimes what we are eating no longer agrees with our internal gut system. It’s become sluggish and is working like an old car that needs to have its oil changed.
    Our bodies are changing – There’s no date for when this should start to happen to us, but it will at some stage begin.
    Stress – This can be the biggest killer. Stress can mess up our minds, our relationships, our work environment and ultimately our bodies.
    Skincare routine – Often we use products that are too harsh as they strip the necessary natural oils from our skin’s reserves. In doing so, the skin’s oils are taken away, causing the body to reproduce more oil to replenish what’s missing.This tends to create a vicious cycle: the body replenishes the oils – we are told to remove the excess – the body reproduces the oils – we remove them again – etc.
    Hydration – Are you drinking 2 litres of water a day to keep your body replenished?
    Time – Do you have unrealistic expectations and are you wanting everything to go away quickly?

    How to help and manage these:

    Maintaining a well-balanced diet where there is a lot of healthy varieties & colours is a great way to keep your body functioning at all levels. This is particularly important if you are suffering from other ailments like Allergies and Intolerances, Hashimotos, Diabetes & even more serious conditions like Cancer. Whilst some of you can still have your indulgent ‘cheat days’, try to ensure it’s not every day.

    Being aware of our body changes and what is happening from the beginning will help with the next phase of life. Whether our changes are monthly related, hormonal or the commencement of the pre-menopausal stage, our bodies will begin to adjust.Seeking out others who have already been on that route is also a great idea – why suffer when learning from someone else’s journey can save you the hassle?

    Try to de-stress and unwind to allow our minds to calm down, giving our bodies a chance to rebalance. Some love to do Yoga, Pilates, spa treatments, massage, running, hiking or just getting some rest. Whatever activity you choose to do, keep a journal nearby where you can write what’s bothering you as part of the de-stress process.

    The right skincare routine is also necessary, and when you find what works for you, stick to it. Unless your body and skin tell you it’s time for a change.Start with a gentle cleansing routine, removing your makeup, washing your face and neck.Then apply a concentrated serum if you have one, or a gentle face balm to help replenish your skin.Your skin should feel soft, especially the next morning when you run the ‘back of your hand’ over your face.I still love doing this today!!!

    Please keep in mind that if you have had skin problems for a longer period of time, the overnight factor will need a longer period of time to see the results.

    Water is the source of life – The reality is that water is a daily necessity, as it helps our bodies get rid of toxins, helps replenish our cells, as well as keep us hydrated from within.Remember, whilst your skincare keeps your skin moisturised, the water intake from within keeps it hydrated.

    Turn back time – We all want the fairy godmother to wave her wand and make all our problems go away overnight.I know what that feels like first hand, waking up every morning to inspect how good or bad my skin looked.The reality is that if you have had a long-term skin condition, it will need time to repair, recover, and to give you that glow back.

    Some of you are still shocked when I explain what my skin used to look like as a teenager, covered from face to thighs in weeping and bleeding Eczema. I have no photos of that time in my life, where I saw myself as hideous, so I kept myself indoors for 2 months, away from life.To get well, I had to do things the hard way, seeking help to get my life back on track.

    I had to eliminate so many foods and drinks from my diet, to clear my body of years of toxins, caused by medicine, antibiotics, and foods. All I wanted to be a whole lot of ‘normal’. It didn’t happen overnight, but with persistence, patience, encouragement, goodwill, strength, a positive attitude together with love and support, I got through to the other side. This is what I always try to reassure you with – it will happen, though be kind to yourself with diligence and managing your expectations.

    Should you want help to get the long term results you want, Book a Consult Therapist and also check out the variety of Help Skin Assistance products we offer.

    What I have loved the most about sharing on the blogs and helping others with their skincare routines is the ‘Feedback, Reviews & Testimonials. These are Your words expressing how you feel about Your skin and the products you have been using. These Testimonials are helping others feel encouraged as they read about your experiences and giving them the hope they need to try it out too. For that I can only say ‘Thank you for sharing’. Some of you have been featured at the beginning of the Testimonials page, which is awesome. If you wish to be included, please send me a picture of yourself, preferably without makeup, and a blurb about your version of happiness.

    I have also been going to various locations to meet you in person. This has been a wonderful way of connecting and talking about how to find solutions. I recently went to Thalwil (Canton Zurich), Basel, and this week I will be in Zug. You can order your products beforehand, and I will personally deliver them to you at Meetup Location. Try to come along even if it’s for a short stop to say hello.

    We have also commenced a Photo Gallery of where Essentially Lili Products have been. As a family, we took a few road trips with my display jars to take pictures around Switzerland. I have finally set up the Photo Gallery for fun on the webpage. I would love for you to take pics of yourself with an iconic feature where you live with your products and send these to me so that these can be added to the Photo Gallery. We’d love to add other global locations to the gallery too. Thank you in advance for being part of this journey.

    Miracles in a Jar

    Miracles in A Jar

    Miracles in Jars

    That soothe, restore, bring relief & help resolve issues
    without side effects, but give you back your confidence.

    Have you ever just wanted to look like the Super Model advertising the brand of skincare, makeup, clothing, and hair products? Have you ever thought to yourself, ‘If I buy that, I will look like them?’ Well, that’s what I used to do when I was a teenager, covered from head to thighs in weeping and bleeding Eczema.

    I remember feeling hideous and noticing that people stared at me, a LOT. It made me feel insecure and lacking confidence, as I tried to go about my business unnoticed.

    During my youth, I used all sorts of medications, cortisone, antibiotics, natural treatments, suction cups, Chinese & Herbal medicines, Acupuncture, exercise, Naturopaths, Homeopathy, and finally Aromatherapy.When I suggest to my customers, ‘I know what you mean, I have tried a lot of methods to find a solution’, I’m definitely not kidding.

    I imagine what it would have been like if someone had given my parents a small ‘Pot of Magic’ when I was growing up.How that may have changed my life, my experiences, my confidence, and ultimately how I felt about myself. To think how being ill can have such a debilitating effect on our self-esteem, we can only really overcome this with the love and support of family & friends.

    For me, the all-natural Nourishing Face Balm has kept my skin free of Eczema, dryness, irritation and redness.It keeps me moisturised all year round despite the weather conditions.During the Swiss winters, my skin is soft and fresh, whilst the summers, it’s hydrated and nourished even after a day out in the sun. It’s definitely maintained the youthfulness of my own skin as I approach the next ‘decade’, more so than when I was in my teens.

    Now let’s fast forward to the past few years of making miracles in a jar.I try not to give high expectations in case people are disappointed, so I try to be a bit more realistic idea of when they should see results. What I love is when the results come even faster than what I was anticipating!The first testimonials were from women using my Signature product, Nourishing Face Balm. It had calmed Rosacea for women almost overnight, and for others, it had cleared Eczema and redness around the nose area very quickly.

    I initially made Renew Balm for Eczema and Oasis Balm for Psoriasis for a lady who was suffering in Albania. I asked friends of mine to translate the ingredients and instructions in order for her to understand what to do with the products. Apparently she tried it once and gave up.

    Unsure if the product was good or not, I sampled out what I had to others.The feedback for the Renew Balm was mixed between those that had quick results and others who didn’t’ want to persist with trying. Oasis Balm I used myself to moisturise my hands, when another lady based in Switzerland asked if she could have some.I sent her the remaining 5ml sample pot and waited.The next day, she posted before and after photos of the Psoriasis that was on her elbows which had almost disappeared. The transformation was so evident, it was hard to believe the difference was from the night before.This 5ml sample was enough to change not only her life but that of her father’s in Ireland.I was more than delighted for her that the product had worked so quickly!

    Another lady asked me about the Cool Eyes, which contains the Cucumber Oil and Myrrh Essential Oil.The Cucumber smells so fresh whilst the Myrrh is thick and gooey like molasses.I explained how to use the Cool Eyes in the mornings around the eye frames.

    Soon after obtaining it and applying it, she told me that she had the skin condition around the eyes called Milia. Milium cysts are like a small white bump that can appear on the nose and cheeks around the eyes.They occur when keratin becomes trapped beneath the surface of the skin.

    This condition had gone down since using the Cool Eyes balm.I was chuffed with that result.Another customer wrote that the Cool Eyes prevented her eyes from being irritated like other products and brands had.

    I made Evanesce Balm to help someone who suffered with Acne spots and breakouts on their back. Knowing it would be difficult to apply the Magic Serum in some parts of the body, I wrote the recipe for Evanesce Balm, choosing a positive name which means to ‘disappear’ like Magic! I sent the product abroad and waited for feedback – I am not sure the product was used consistently to get the results. Others asked if I had something to help with Acne, and the sampling began again.The feedback came rather quickly – cyst type acne had cleared up, persistent spots reduced and breakouts kept under control. The age group ranged from 10 to 30s, as the ingredients were gentle enough for a youngster’s skin, as well as those who seem to be going through post-natal hormonal changes too.

    Go Molly came about when a friend asked if I could help with Flying Warts, otherwise known as Molluscum Contagious. I kept visualising how I would apply this if it were on me and thus the instructions for the application came about. With persistence, my friend applied as much as her child would let her. And they slowly but surely vanished. Another mum heard about the product and got a bottle for her twins and applied as much as she could. These poor kids had been going to get them cut off for over 1 year and she was beyond sick of this condition.A few weeks later she called and asked for another bottle and brought the kids for me to meet.Raising his T-Shirt to show me, there were only a few left on his tummy – the rest had disappeared.

    For me, the best part of what I do is helping others.I love researching and writing recipes for the products I make in order to help the people who ask me for help.Sometimes I get it right the first time, whilst other times I have to keep blending until the consistency of what I want is reached.The feedback and reviews together with the messages asking how to apply when the original instruction doesn’t work are all part of what I offer. It makes me feel happy knowing there is one less person with low self-esteem, yet one MORE who has found confidence and a glow.

    After-all, isn’t that what life should be about?Being able to face whatever challenges you have, with your best foot forward, knowing that how you feel on the inside is mirrored on the outside.

    So if you need a boost in your confidence, get your miracle in a jar from here: whether it’s for your dry cracked feet, Acne Rosacea, Irritated skin, for your kids and their delicate faces, or just because you want something that is all-natural.And should you want to discuss further,you can book a Consultation session for a holistic approach to well-being.

    Favourite Vegetable Oils

    Sunflower is one of the richest Carrier Oils with so many benefits.
    These allow Essential Oils to be applied directly & safely
    to the skin without causing irritations.

    The Vegetable Oils used for Product making are not the kind you would normally buy at the Supermarket. Those in the stores are exposed to direct Sunlight, shop lighting, and heating which can cause the oils to degrade. Extra Virgin Oil is normally stored in dark glass bottles, so taking this from the back of the row is a good idea!

    As our bodies’ cell walls and membranes contain quite a lot of fats and oils, it makes sense for us to use nutritious oils in our foods and skincare products. These will help us maintain the fluidity of our cells.

    Did you know that using oils as a cleanser actually helps your skin?The oil softens any sebum which
    may be blocking the pores, allowing these to be removed.

    There are plenty of Vegetable Oils to choose from, which vary in colour, natural fragrance, and price. Familiar oils include Apricot Kernel, Sweet Almond, and Coconut. These are found in many skincare products that help repair and calm sensitive skin.

    The following Vegetable Oils are some that I use in the Essentially Lili range because I love what they do for the skin:

    Argan (Argania Spinosa) originates from Southern Morocco which makes this product quite expensive.It is yellow in colour and has a lot more Vitamin E (Tocopherol) than olive oil. It is resistant to oxidation with good free radical scavengers.It’s great for damaged and mature skin as it assists the restructuring of the cells.

    Avocado (Persea Gratissima) contains essential fatty acids that our body needs but cannot produce. This helps create and rebuild new cells, contain omega-3, omega-6 fatty acids, Linoleic Acid (LA), Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA). So if this is what Avocado does for our bodies from the inside, the outside
    is going to love it just as much.

    Avocado originally came from Central America, but now is grown around the world.It is rich in Vitamins A, B1, B2, D, E, and Beta carotene. Classified as a monosaturated oil, Avocado is best suited for dry skin conditions in topical applications. It should be green in colour if unadulterated and it comes from the flesh of the fruit. It is great for rehydrating, regenerating and helping the elasticity of the skin.With other carrier oils, Avocado enriches the vitamin and protein content.

    Calendula (Calendula Officinalis) has anti-inflammatory properties and promotes wound healing.It is used in sun and after-sun products, as well as to help children with nappy rashes, grazes, and Mums who are nursing.

    Evening Primrose (Oenothera biennis) comes from the seeds of the plants which are grown worldwide.It is very rich in Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), a fatty substance used for skin conditions like Eczema. Evening Primrose is used in various skin products, creams, bath oils, and hair conditioners as it helps the skin’s elasticity and therefore repairing damaged, dry and aging skin. Taking supplements can also be used to help calm skin conditions from within.

    Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) is actually a liquid wax. Jojoba resembles the sebum of the skin very closely and is naturally rich in Vitamin E.This helps promotes the glow in our complexions, as this oil is very light and is absorbed quickly.

    Sunflower Oil (Helianthus annuus) has very little scent compared to another vegetable/carrier oils, and absorbs easily into the skin, leaving very little residue. Sunflower Oil has high concentrates of Vitamins A, B, D, and E, as well as minerals, lecithin, insulin. It is a great product for the skin, adding UV protection qualities together with the unsaturated essential fatty acids. Sunflower is amongst the ingredients found in Sun Kissed Serum to help with the effects of the sun for those that have been ‘kissed’.

    Wheatgerm Oil (Triticum sativum) is obtained from the germ of the wheat. It is extremely high content in Vitamin E which is a natural antioxidant and preservative, together with essential fatty acids, Vitamins A, B & D. Wheatgerm helps promote circulation and increase blood flow, which is great for damaged or scarred skin. It helps form new cells to improve the appearance of the skin and to help repair sun damage to the skin.

    Wheatgerm is found in our Vitamin Rich Range to help with skin that has Acne / Rosacea, has been irritated, damaged, and needs some love and affection. The Vitamin Rich Mens Face Balm and Vitamin Rich Womens Face Balm and Evanesce Balm for those that have Acne which needs treatment.

    Vitamin E (Tocopherol Acetate) is a natural preservative and a strong antioxidant. It is used in various skincare products such as acne, lip balms, anti-wrinkle, cleansers, and peels for sensitive skin.

    What I find amazing is how much better these Vegetable Oils have. Their wonderful properties boost our skin’s reserves with goodness and help maintain the elasticity whilst promoting cell regeneration. Combined with the Essential Oils, there really is no need to include other unnatural ingredients to our blends.In future blogs, I can share more information about how wonderful these Vegetable Oils are, in the quest of choosing the best ingredients for making the Essentially Lili Skincare products.
