Testimonials 2020

Starting the New Decade with Your stories & the love for your Pots of Magic.

I hope you all had a wonderful start to the new decade, 2020. With so many events both good and bad happening around the globe, I wanted to begin our Newsletter year with happy testaments and reviews.Sharing your story with me is one of privilege and honour, especially since these are personal struggles, frustrations and persistence to reach your goals. If there’s one thing I can encourage you through this Blog is to Never Give Up.

I’d like to share some new Testimonials that have been sent to me over the past year, when I wrote the last Testimonial Blog.Starting with the Nourishing Face Balm and Frankincense Face Serum , this dynamic duo are so wonderfully soft and hydrating, that seriously one or two drops is sufficient for your whole face to feel uplifted.

Snippets of glee commenced coming in from various locations in Switzerland, starting with this:
‘My pots of pure goodness have arrived. #natural #handmadecosmetics #youngandbeautiful. I have Nourishing Face Balmand samples of products I haven’t tried before.’

For the Frankincense Face Serum a lovely lady shared this:
‘I never believed anything external applied on the skin could work. But Essentially Lili has changed my belief.I have been using Frankincense Face Serum and it has worked wonders for me.My skin has a glow and looks healthy and nourished now.Thank you, Lili for such wonderful products.’

I Love this Testament regarding Cool Eyes :
’I am a working mom of 2 young children with lots of stress and not enough sleep.That makes my eyes look tired all the time. I was desperately looking for products to help my eyes and feel fresher.And then I was finally advised to try this product. The Cool Eyes was Love at first smell!When I applied it, I immediately knew this was the beginning of a beautiful friendship.Since I started using Cool Eyes I feel so much better during the day.If my morning gets too stressful and I forget to use it, I don’t feel as well in my body.I am addicted.I feel like it’s a product originally invented for Aphrodite And what I also love about it is that I know that it does not cause any harm to my skin.I do not need to worry about the ingredients because it’s all from Mother Nature.’ What a gorgeous post, definitely made me feel very happy for my customer.

For the Over 50’s classy modern woman, I created Diamond Era Balm with the Diamond Era Serum.
The ingredients chosen not only hydrate the skin, but give it an additional boost, especially if you’ve spent many hours out and under the harsher conditions of the sun. A customer writes:
‘I am really amazed by your balms, in particular the Diamond Era Balm.Honestly, I love cosmetics and like to think that I am pretty knowledgeable in that area.But your products are simply amazing.’

My friend from the U.K took a chance with the Mens Aftershave Care bundle.He shared this:
‘The Hydrating Face Balm and Aftershave Serum are lovely.After a shave, I apply both and it’s nice and leaves the skin full of moisture all day.’

What about for our youngsters, who are going through their hormonal changes, feeling a little anxious about how their skin is behaving and appearing?The products I suggest for this age group is the Youth Face Balm, Sunflower Cleanser and the Magic Serum as this combination not only cleanses the skin which is usually clogged, but helps re-balance and hydrated it too.I love when parents take a chance, based on the comments and feedback of others, or simply from the Testimonials given by you.It didn’t take long to receive these wonderful reviews, from other parts of Switzerland.

‘My gorgeous son was so embarrassed about the slight imperfections on his forehead. Lili has come to our rescue.Using Essentially Lili products daily for 3 weeks, my 13 year old son is so excited to wake up every morning for a view and review!He’s been using the Youth Face Balm, Sunflower Cleanser and the Magic Serum.His 12 year old sister is now sneaking in on the act.Thank YOU for proving products that are natural and are so easy to use.Do yourself a favour – buy / support local products that bring sunshine and health.’ The Aussie in Switzerland!’

Another well-known Global Photographer based in Switzerland shares:
’I wanted to wait a few weeks or so before submitting my review, but the results were so fast that I felt compelled to write this review as soon as. We’ve bought some of Lili’s Essentially Lili’s products – the Youth Face Balm and Magic Serum Not only did Lili provide us with the instructions on best use but also how the product itself will work.In no time at all we noticed a clear difference.For what it does for the skin and psychologically for young impressionable minds, it is certainly value for money and we cannot thank Lili enough. I would highly recommend looking through her product range and seeing what will meet your needs or just give her a call.Not only does she deliver good products her service and personality matches. Such a great combination and I will continue to buy her products and enjoy her services. Thanks Lili.’

The other products used for Acne, or Acne/Rosacea are the Evanesce Balm , Vitamin Rich Womens Face Balm, Vitamin Rich Mens Face Balm, together with the Magic Serum and either of the Cleansers.

One of my first customers shares:
‘I’ve been using Lili’s products for almost two years now.I’ve seen a huge change in my skin, the first products which have helped my skin long-term. My husband is now using the Vitamin Rich Mens Face Balm too.He’s a runner and this cold weather is harsh on his skin, combined with a busy job, his skin wasn’t great, though he’s seen a huge improvement! Effects were noticeable after a few weeks and continues. Keep up the good work.’

I was so glad a Blogger shared her testimonial, writing:
’ I love these products. The Vitamin Rich Womens Face Balm is one of my favourite products to use.I have been using this for about two years now. It keeps my skin nourished and feeling fresh all year long, but it feels especially nourishing during the cold winter months. On top of it, being all natural and amazing for your skin, it is great value for money. One container lasts so long!!’

“A Satisfied Customer is the Best Source of Advertisement.”

Another product is the Sun Kissed Balm which was created for Sunspots and discolouration, but not freckles. A customer shares:
‘I recently bought the Cypress Cleansing Balm and Sun Kissed Balm. Oh Wow, so good. My skin really loves them.I still suffer a break out in spots when my cycle comes around, but your potions really help to calm it all down.So thank you!’

Another fantastic message from a woman using the Sun Kissed Balm:
‘Lili, I kept meaning to message.I love the Sun Kissed Balm , and think it is improving my sun damage slowly. It also seems to be somehow drying up oily spots which I have had on my temples since Spring.I love the smell and feel of the balm.

A few months later, she wrote again, and this was definitely worth the wait:
‘On the first application I noticed how nice the product felt on my skin and smelt lovely.There was an improvement in the appearance of the sun-damage after a short time.I also noticed that the spots I had had all summer on my temples and hairline disappeared overnight. I thought might be coincidence from not using sun-cream any longer in the cooler weather. This week I noticed the spots had reappeared after using sun cream again. Applied the Sun Kissed Balm and they disappeared overnight! No idea which ingredients in the balm are responsible for this but know this will be my go-to product this summer!! Thanks Lili and sorry I did not spread the word sooner!!’

The Coloured Clays work well as a weekly pampering session for your skin.Choosing between the Red for Sensitive, Green for Problem or Oily, and White for Sensitive skin, this easy to mix and apply treat helps deep cleanse your skin. This definitely beats spending a fortune on methods that can actually cause further damage to your skin. A happy customer not only uses her products with her teens, she wrote after using the Red Clay:
‘My skin felt so amazing all day long. It was such a treat using the Red Clay and love that it’s so easy to have pampered myself at home knowing it’s so good and natural for my skin.’

Babies are our pride and joy, and nothing breaks our hearts more than when our little ones are suffering with their skin. With this is mind, I wanted to make skincare for kids that was not only gentle but effective for keeping it hydrated and soft all year round.Recently, my customer wrote to me about her baby girl:
‘I really love the products I have seen so far from you. The real only concern I have, what IF you move away some day, or for who know what reason, you stop producing?What will one do then? Returning to what we used before?Oh my god, my little 2.5 year old is already in love with the Natural Baby Moisturising Oil. Every time when I try to give her another crème, just to finish off the bottle rather than trashing it, she says, ‘Mama, No, this is not nice. I want the blue bottle body lotion.’
Don’t you just love it when kids tell you their truth?Thanks so much sweetie, I’m really pleased you’re happy!

Other Products in the Kids Range include for specific conditions like Chicken Pox, Molloscum Flying Warts and Bug bites / stings. A few different mums wrote about their experiences:
‘We used the Pox Potion , Amazing stuff!’

‘After dealing with these troublemakers, flying warts, I got hold of this amazing product, Go Molly . We were applying it regularly for a couple of weeks and they were going away.It was a big battle but we won.My girl suffers from low immunity and unfortunately now and then, there is a new one popping up.
I keep the product on hand and when you catch it at the beginning, they disappear within a few days. It’s Magic!’

‘I love the Mozz Off , spray as it feels so much nicer on my skin than the chemical versions you can buy.I have a young daughter and I can put it on confidently knowing it is good for her skin.Also it works!!No bites since I have been applying it.Thank you Lili! ’

For Concentrates and Inhalers , I received a few messages from happy customers:
‘The Anxiety Inhalers are great.My youngest loves the Kid’s one, using it when he feels stressed, and me too, actually, I love the Adults one!’

Whilst another Mum wrote:
‘Hi Lili, he is doing amazingly well.No more Eczema with the Renew Balm and has no more congestion, thanks to the Kids Breathe Easy Concentrate!

For me, no matter how old the person I’m helping is, getting the result is the ultimate goal. And these messages always make me the happiest.

What about that irritating skin condition, Eczema.I absolutely detest it, how it makes your skin feel, irritated, dried out, swollen, cracked, bleeding, itching and so utterly annoying.The other condition similar to this is Psoriasis which can have flare ups just as bad on the skin. These both should be resolved at source, finding out why the condition occurs in the first place. Don’t ever hesitate to book the Consultation session to fast track your steps to wellness.

Testimonials for Eczema & Psoriasis:
‘I often get heat rashes on my face and upper chest area. I asked Lili if she had something I could apply on it. Lili asked me if I had already moisturised after my shower and when I told her I applied Nivea, she asked me to wash it off first. Then she applied a tiny amount of Renew Balm to the areas covered in redness. A few minutes later, the rashes in the various places had all gone. I had to get myself a pot of this magic before leaving for London! Thanks so much, Lili.

‘I’ve had psoriasis on my scalp since I was 14, but my elbows and knees got really bad after having my first son. So for 9 years I’ve been trying all the lotions and potions from the doctors/internet/amazon etc and nothing had ever really worked. However within a couple of days using Lili’s Oasis Balm for Psoriasis. I noticed a huge improvement with less itching and then over the weeks a massive improvement in the appearance of the plaques. You only need a tiny bit of balm each time, a little goes a long way. I’ve just ordered some more!’

‘We started using Oasis Serum for Psoriasis on my mum’s head and she feels less itchy already. Fingers crossed that it works for her, where other medication hasn’t been able to get rid of the irritation.’

Testimonials – Your Story

Testimonials Your Story

Testimonials

Are Your Personal Stories, the Journey to Success
& reaching your goal for skin health and well-being.

Testimonials for me is when someone shares their personal individual story of struggle, trials, falling, rising and reaching their goal. Whether it’s a combination of health & diet, studies and a higher purpose in life.

Often, someone comes to me privately on a direct message asking for help.Usually it’s skin related – Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne and dry skin.For me, who has had a history with dry irritated sensitive Eczema prone skin, these issues are something I can help with first hand.But sometimes the condition is something that I haven’t suffered or endured before. Therefore, providing help requires a little more time to research before coming up with a small batch of product for them to try out.

In 2016, I was asked to make a product for Sun Spots and Discolouration. I made both Sun Kissed Serum and Sun Kissed Balm for this condition, giving out samples to try out.Then I received this testimonial in message in Feb & April 2018:

After enjoying too much sun in Spain some time back, I got some really nasty brown blotches on my cheeks. I was so bad, I had to use a lot of foundation to cover them up, and I am really not a foundation person.Lili recommended the Sun Kissed Balm and I started using the Balm in the evening, after cleansing my face with Cypress Cleansing Balm. It took a couple of weeks to see the first effect, I had to be a bit patient, yet my skin recovered over time and today I am back to a healthy skin tone. People around me noticed the difference and started positively commenting on my skin and how it recovered. I can recommend the Sun Kissed Balm and I am now more careful when out in the sun. Together with good sun screen, sun hat and Sun Kissed Balm I should never experience looking like I had been sprayed with chocolate.Thanks Lili x

Another happy customer wrote in April:
Hi Lili, the Products are great. Even my son & husband are trying the products this time around. Magic Serum and balm worked great for me this last week. Now that my acne has already cleared up I am onto using the Sun Kissed Balm at night! I can’t wait to see how Sun Kissed Balm that helps my sunspots! I will never go back to using over the counter face products as long as you are in business. I guess you have to always keep me as a private client no matter what!

In 2018, a Mum asked for help with Cystic Acne.I suggested the Cypress Cleansing Balm , Magic Serum and Evanesce Balm combination.Then I received this testimonial in message in Feb 2018:

Since I was a teenager I’ve suffered from greasy skin, pimples and black spots. I’ve learnt to fight and control them but after giving birth to my son I had breakouts every week.During the years I’ve tried different brands including the most popular but also natural. Some did their job sometimes others didn’t… nothing compared to Lili’s all-natural products. I’ve been using Cypress Cleansing Balm and Evanesce Balm every night for the last 3 weeks adding Magic Serum on the most difficult spots and I can only say they are Amazing.No oily shine, my pimples have almost disappeared completely… and my skin looks and feels great.I told Lili I thought the products were a bit expensive but now I’m sooooo happy having bought them. They are worth every penny. Evenmore, as you need a tiny amount of product each time, the products will last several months. I can only recommend Essentially Lili products for a healthy and beautiful skin.

A customer asks for a Combination of Kids and Adult Products, including Vitamin Rich for the combination of Acne/Rosacea.Then she wrote to me in April:

I am SO happy to have discovered Lili and her amazing products. I have tried the Natural Baby Moisturising Oil and the Happy Babies Hydrosol for my kids with amazing results. No more cracked skin during winter time and added benefit that they are learning to take care of their skin from a very early age. I have tried the Frankincense Face Serum and the Vitamin Rich Womens Face Balm.Both these products bring so many emotions and feels even by just opening the products and before applying it you have Euphoria all over you. My skin needed these so badly. Having used them twice a day for 15 days now, I can truly tell the difference and the skin is well maintained and moisturised. I am never going back to commercial products since I now know the source of all good and natural products. If you are hesitant in trying Lili’s products, don’t be. Natural is always the best for you and Lili surely knows it.Thanks @Lili Giglia for all the hard work you do for making these amazing products! A very loyal customer from now on.

Sometimes my products don’t work out the first time.I initially made What Crow’s Feet in 2016 for the Eyes, but then when one of my dedicated testers reacted, I stopped making it.Then I made the Cool Eyes when I found the glass jars.I love this tiny pot of Gold magic, but it’s not about what I think.It’s what my customers think.In August 2017, one suffering with Milia wrote this:

LOVE IT! The Cool Eyes is super creamy & smooth and it hydrates the skin around my eyes. The best thing is it reduced the Milia I have around my eyes. I see results just after 3 weeks of usage! And the product is all natural. I’m so glad that I found this Lili.

Another Customer needed a little convincing to try out the Cool Eyes but was soon very thankful she had bought it:

Omg my puffy upper eyelid disappeared in 30 minutes on Saturday morning after just ONE application of Cool Eyes. What the heck is in that tiny pot????!!!

The Mandarin Lip Balm is one of the latest products to the range.After a few attempts, we quite like this latest blend with Mandarin and Tea Tree, which helps get rid of any infections and viruses too. I took it to a Women’s Meet up in Zurich this March and let the ladies sample it.I know I can’t complain about this result that she wrote the next day:

Lili, your Mandarin Lip Balm was really good. I have found only one good in 40 years and yours is the 2nd best one!!

Another Customer wrote to me:

I had a persistent hard sore on my lip which nothing seemed to make it go away. I have been using the Mandarin Lip Balm since it was made and the hard sore has gone, my lips are now soft again.Not much is required either! Thanks so much.

This story is by far the best result.When I was asked about 2nd degree burns, I was thinking about the products I make, the age of the child and what would be best for her skin.I made my suggestion to the concerned and stressed out mum when she replied, ‘No, I was told to get Renew Balm ’.I went back through my reviews and testimonials and found a comment made by my brother in Australia.

I have been using the Renew Balm for some time now and it has completely renewed the skin on my hands. I had an acid burn that has now cleared up completely. Thanks Lili.

The Renew Balm was sent over to the little girl and I waited for updates, when I received this 2 months later:

My 5 year-old daughter spilt boiling hot tea down her upper chest and ended up with second degree burns. It had blistered and the doctors were very concerned about scaring, especially since it’s such an important part of the female body. We needed to apply any form of cream (of our choice) to the scar every day for at least a year and to be prepared for a scar. Once the last scabs had fallen away, a friend recommended we try the Essentially Lili Renew Balm . We rubbed it on her scar every day for 2 months and she already has no marks left to show. The doctor was very impressed and we are so thankful that she will have no issues with a scar at all. Thank you for all your help, guidance and support Lili.

I had the pleasure of meeting this little girl in person this week and was so happy to see that there’s not a single mark or scar on her body for the burns.

There are so many stories which just make me so happy to read and know that the Essentially Lili products have contributed to bringing happiness to that situation.If you are one of those people, please share your reviews on the Facebook Page and the Webpage Others read these stories and testimonials, which help them choose their products without my help!!

Where the conditions are more serious and gut related, don’t forget to keep an eye on your diet / food intake to ensure that you’re not aggravating the skin.On the last blog, I talked about what kind of ingredients to look out for if you have certain conditions.Be sure to check out that list or message me for more information. In Summary, if you want to make a change to your diet, start my reducing the saturated fats, sugars, carbs and processed foods.Eat more greens and salads as they are lighter to digest.

On the newsletter, I wrote about Carrot Seed Essential Oil. To make your own gentle scrub for your face, place these ingredients into a jar and scoop when needed.
• Add Honey which is great for healing the skin as it allows the skin to maintain moisture and keep it soft.
Coconut Oil which is antifungal and also helps moisturise the skin.
• Add the grounded Coffee to the scrub.It has antioxidants which help your skin, but also give the texture for gently scrubbing off skin cells that no longer need to be there!
• Add a few drops of Carrot Seed Oil to the mix, which is fabulous for all skin types, as well as boosting skin that has been sun-damaged.
Alternative ingredients – You can use Oatmeal, Olive Oil, Lavender or Tea Tree Essential Oil.

If you are looking to fast forward your journey to recovery, you can book your Consult Therapist session. I will help you get the results you want as I have already been on that hard journey. It takes courage to persist with getting the results you want.It definitely has high and low moments but I will empathise, sympathise and encourage you along your path.

If you want products to help relieve your symptoms whilst on your journey, please see the variety of Products Skin Assistance available on the webpage.

You can also request to join the various Facebook groups I have set up: Essentially Lili Nutrition & Well Being & Essentially Lili Q&A – Taking Care of Your Skin.

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 break outs.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 where 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 face, but they had them on their shoulders and back.During the winter time 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 were not processed or spoilt by Commercial pesticides.When we were teenagers, the association to 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 in people’s 20’s, 30’s and often in the 40’s.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, hormonals 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 was a whole lot of ‘normal’.It didn’t happen overnight.But with persistence, patience, encouragement, good will, 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 Consultationand also check out the variety of 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 happy.

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. In Switzerland, we went to Matterhorn (Zermatt), Brigg, Sion, Martigny, Oeschinensee, Kandersteg, Verbier, Zurich & Basel.We also went to Evian in France, Stresa in Italy. 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 them into me so that these can be added to the Photo Gallery. Whilst I want you to surprise me, I also want Global photos from Melbourne, Dubai, Seattle, Fort Worth Texas, San Francisco, Washington, London, Dublin, Copenhagen, as well as other locations in Switzerland. Thank you in advance for being part of this journey.
