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.

• 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.

• 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.

    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.’

    You have to love reading news like this, as you know that the Magic solution has brought relief to an otherwise ongoing problem.

    There are just so many wonderful stories to choose from. Thank YOU everyone, who has written and shared your comments and testimonials on the Facebook Pages, Instagram and on the Webpage.I hope you have enjoyed the free gifts, coupons/vouchers I have given to show my appreciation not only for this, but for your loyal custom.Your stories and reviews have inspired others to want the same success for themselves.

    If you need help, please don’t hesitate to book the Consultation session online.I hope you enjoyed reading the snippets of positive outcomes, and look forward to helping out in 2020.

    Loving Your Feet

    Loving Your Feet

    Loving Your Feet

    Why is that we often forget to take care of our feet?

    Our feet are often the last thing we think about when we take care of ourselves. Do you forget to take care of your feet until you’re about to go on holidays? Or do you wait until they’re dried out, cracked, smelling and aching?I honestly think that we take our hard-working feet for granted.We stand, walk, hike, dance, run, exercise, and they take our weight from place to place in our shoes which are often too tight, low, high or non-supportive. How do we cope, remain active, play sport or compete when they hurt or ache? At what point do we stop and give them a whole lotta love with pampering and massage?

    Day to day, after showering or following our morning routine, we make sure we put on our skincare, fix and style our hair and get dressed for the occasion before rushing out the door. If you’re wearing closed shoes, no-one really needs to see the condition of your feet, unless you’re wearing fancy open shoes or heels.Are you guilty of this?I can tell you I’m guilty of rushing out the door with my laces undone, tying them up in the lift to the garage!!! But let me share my yukky feet story.I hope you can relate to this and I would love for your honest feedback too.

    I recently stumbled across those hideous pics of my feet the last time I went for a pedicure in 2014. Don’t get me wrong, I loved going to see the Beautician and spending time with my friend whilst getting pampered.What I didn’t like is how embarrassing my feet’s heels were, cracked and bleeding, hurting like hell and ugly to look at. The beautician exclaimed, ‘OMG Lili, what happened to your feet?’ as she puts on a mask to start grinding the dead skin on them. Urgh how disgusting, no matter what I did, they were always dry.That yukky habit of picking, itching, scratching, picking, pulling, rubbing, and ripping that then caused bleeding and pain had exposed me, and I felt awful showing my feet in public.

    While she blasted my dead skin off, I just wanted to be sick and puke, or crawl into a hole from my embarrassment. And of course, she needed extra time to get passed the layers, cutting my heels by accident, which only added to my existing pain. Applying some feet product to my skin, she finished off with some colour nail polish, but my heels were already drying out by the time I arrived home. That’s just crazy, after all that time being pampered, why were my feet still dry?

    I tried many products over the years, from cheap Supermarket brands to expensive ones.Some of them were so icky to put on and smelt awful, yet I would apply because my feet needed them.I just didn’t like the results, irrespective of how religiously I treated my feet. Can you relate to that?

    When I started making Essentially Lili products in 2015, I decided that feet had to be included in the range. Shea Butter & Cocoa Butter are used to help provide the hydration to the skin.I experimented with blends. I accidentally spilled the liquid version of peppermint aero onto the stove which made our apartment smell so deliciously fragrant for quite some time!!I tried a number of blended versions to achieve the right buttery mix that would just melt onto the skin when it came into contact with my body’s natural temperature for the most effective application. This was the beginning of Peppermint Feet. It’s a definite favourite in Australia as another package heads out to Melbourne amongst other goodies.Not only does it get rid of smelly feet, athlete’s foot or fungal infections, it really hydrates the heels, keeping the skin soft and hydrated.

    Did you know that Peppermint Essential Oil is not suggested for Expecting or Nursing Mums? When a newly expecting lady asked me to help with her feet, I created the new blend using Tangerine instead of Peppermint essential oil, making it suitable for expecting and nursing mums. My daughter and I wanted to have a cute name for the new addition to the Feet Range. We came up with Tango Twinkle Toes as we imagined the expectant and nursing mum wanting to dance with her little ones, which is what I did with both my babies!

    The last product to be included to the range is Lime Foot Repair .The difference with this one is that it contains Beeswax, which seals the hydration into the skin.You don’t need much to keep the feet soft, but if you have stubborn problems, I suggest adding a little more and wearing socks to keep the product close to the skin whilst you sleep.

    This leads me to this next wonderful story. I was contacted by a concerned wife about her husband’s feet.They were aching, causing him agony and discomfort to walk. I suggested using either the Peppermint Feet or Lime Foot Repair depending on his preference of oils, scents and overall goal for his heels. Instead he opted to take them both, using Peppermint Feet in the mornings and Lime Foot Repair in the evenings.A few weeks later, he sent me before and after photos with this remarkable testimonial.

    From Andrew G, Zurich: “With my religiously male application techniques – not every day, often missing a few in between and several false starts, it is still no surprise that my heels look so good. Including the use of a pumice stone and repeated application of Essentially Lili Lime Foot Repair the difference is easy to see. At the start, I had cracked heels with cuts so deep they bled and were so painful I could barely walk.Within 3 weeks my heels were healed and my feet were looking stellar. I used Essentially Lili Lime Foot Repair at night and Peppermint Feet in the morning. Now the pain is gone, my cracks have disappeared and there’s a newfound spring in my step.”

    What an amazing result in such a short period of time … and how many men would ever admit to needing this kind of help for their feet?Check out his pictures in the upper gallery – before and after using the products!!

    Another testimonial about happy heels from Sevi, Geneva: My pregnant friend in Greece is very happy with Lime Foot Repair and keeps on using it every day.She has seen a huge improvement in the quality of her skin on the feet and toes. I must admit my daughter and I are huge fans of the Lime Foot Repair as well.After bathing and applying the Natural Baby Moisturising Oil, she insists on putting Lime Foot Repair on her feet.We both love the texture and scent of this product.I am a forever customer of Essentially Lili, once tried, you can never go back to anything else. Keep up the great products Lili, you are doing an amazing job! .”

    This testimonial was from lovely Emily, Basel, who just wanted to try something different. The Tango Twinkle Toes healed my dry scaly heels during my Camino de Santiago walk in Spain.As I wanted to carry only a few items as possible, I also used it for the rest of my body and it worked great!!It isn’t
    oily or greasy.

    Judith from Zurich wrote:The Tango Twinkle Toes is the only foot balm that has had any lasting positive effect on my feet! Absolutely love it!It was so nice to use a completely natural product whilst pregnant too.

    Who wouldn’t love to have results like these?I know that I love reading these kinds of happy testimonials, every time!!Check out the Before Pictures in the Gallery:Before & After Andew’s Feet, Yukky Feet at Beautician’s,Peppermint Leaves, Airport Check-In.

    As mentioned above, there are plenty of brands you can get from the stores that may treat your skin.What I try to do with my products is give you long-term results, and make your feet feel great all the time.Depending on how bad the condition of your heels are, you’ll need to gently scrape away the dead skin before having your shower.

    You can also make a gentle scrub using sea-salt, or Himalayan Pink Salts, coarse sugar, Olive Oil and some lemon juice.Mix the contents together in a container and gently scrub your legs and feet, before washing it off in the shower.I use this mix (without the lemon) to soften my hands after washing the dishes too.You only have to mix up a small amount in order to keep it for around a week before making a fresh batch.

    As stated in the Newsletter, I’m discounting the Feet Range this month so that you can get your Pot of Magic and take care of your feet, all year round.Remember, your feet need just as much love as the rest of you, and if they’re aching, hurting or even smelling, get them sorted, as naturally as you can.

    Be one of the many who add their testimonials to the Essentially Lili page, sharing your own story and experience with what helped you.This is what I love the most about what I do.Helping you overcome not only your skin concerns, but finding the confidence to be the best version of yourself to Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful.

    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 Help Skin Assistance products 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 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.

    Customer Satisfaction

    Give Thanks for everything

    Customer Satisfaction

    The best kind of satisfaction is reading how Happy
    your customer is with their results.
    Seeing the results for yourself is an amazing feeling!

    Testimonials

    Customer Satisfaction is the Ultimate Success Story..

    I’m sure we all love when someone goes the extra mile to provide genuine Customer Service, and that person makes you feel special and important to them. The service industry used to always be about ensuring customers are looked after. We gave the best service which was then communicated to our managers at Performance Review time.

    Ironically this seems to be missing lately as businesses are more interested in making their money, rather than connecting with those they are helping. Some situations are so irritating. For example, when you pick up the phone to resolve a crisis or situation, and the person at the other end isn’t interested in helping you fix the problem. Usually, escalation is the only way to have these kinds of problems sorted.

    I remember a time whilst travelling in Europe, I wanted to ask the lady at the Customer Service Desk about the trains. Whilst I was asking the question, she proceeded to shut the blinds in my face, her eyes facing downwards as she spoke into her microphone, ‘I’m closed!’ Oh the shock on my face, thinking how can she be sitting at the customer service desk when she didn’t want to help anyone?

    This was just so against the grain of what I had been doing all my years working for Blue Chip companies around the globe. Communication is important, as well as being honest and offering assistance to help resolve situations. In my opinion, this makes the best kind of employees, and are the type that Clients and Managers always like to speak positively about.

    At Essentially Lili, we have heard good and bad things, all of which is to help improve and build rapport, reputation, and credibility. In our previous Blogs, we don’t always get things right the first time and with feedback, we are able to change, evolve, and improve … or in some cases, scrap altogether!

    What we love the best is when someone is brave enough to ask for help. They send us their close up photos of their skin, including the blokes who add, ‘Lili, here are my pics without makeup on!’ … We love that everyone is able to join in our humour!!

    Once their products arrive, they follow instructions on when and how to apply and any other advice given. When the note comes back to say ‘OMG I love your product, my skin feels amazing, my feet look better than ever before, the Rosacea / Eczema has calmed down, the Acne has vanished, the Menopause – what Menopause?’… This has been the best Testimonial and the ultimate feel-good story for us.

    I recently met with a customer who took a risk when asking about my non-commercial products earlier this year. She tried it, changed her routines, and saw an improvement over a very short period of time. She then moved on from the problem-solving Magic Serum to the lush Frankincense Face Serum. She looks Absolutely Fabulous and for me, showed Customer Satisfaction at a wonderful level! This made us both feel happy to see how a little bit of change can make a massive difference to how one looks and feels!

    With an overall holistic approach, we try to help our customers achieve the results they are looking for. We believe that a happy, stress-free, well-nourished and hydrated body reflects on the outside with clear skin, a fresh mind, and a body that functions according to its purpose. One that is out of balance stressed, not well-nourished is like a car that hasn’t had a regular oil change, which chugs along inefficiently. Please don’t get us wrong – we all have moments like this, where we are stressed and out of sync. Though finding the balance that works for us individually is what we try to achieve.

    BLOG PARTICIPATION:

    Yep, I’m sure you could share some really bad customer service stories with us!! We are looking forward to seeing some fantastic and some cringe-worthy stories from you. Please Don’t be shy!!

    Starting a business from scratch often means just taking the plunge.

    When Essentially Lili was founded, it was pretty much a ‘Jump In With Both Feet’  kind of experience.

    We were unsure of going ahead with this venture. We were afraid of failing, scared, and worried that it would become such an overwhelming experience, that we would not cope as a result. 

    I contemplated becoming a consultant for a well-known established Brand as the safer option. But I knew I would be unable to promote products that I was unwilling to use on my own face due to what I suffered in my youth.

    I remember feeling somewhat overwhelmed as my brain processed the negative thought process of, ‘What if I can’t? What if I fail? What if no one likes what I do?’It is so easy to remain in a negative mindset and so much harder to pull yourself out with your head held high as you plan to ‘Jump in with Both Feet’!

    To help overcome my uncertainty, I went to see what other women and mums were doing in Zurich. These Mums are inspirational, to say the least, as they juggle their often very young families, commitments, and businesses to be a success!   They make, create, sell, inspire, share, help, promote, build each other up and encourage other women to do the same.

    I said to myself … ‘Well, why not?  If I don’t try, I will never know and might regret this for the rest of my life. 

    What if they absolutely LOVE Our Brand containing all-natural ingredients for our homemade Products you can choose at Shop Categories, which have No Chemicals or Unnatural Preservatives?  Wouldn’t it be better for people to use the Essentially Lili Products and share via Word of Mouth their love for it to others?

    Excited about the prospect of helping others, the name Essentially Lili came to life by bringing together the use of Essential Oils and my name Lili.

    Two days later, with a bag of sample containers obtained from our local Chemist / Drogerie, we cleared the kitchen and began making a batch of Nourishing Face Balm to give out to people.We went to Zurich and handed out Essentially Lili samples with a note about the ingredients contained, details about Essentially Lili and how to contact us for more information.

    We waited… and waited… and waited for Feedback.   This was the hardest part, waiting and then collating feedback.

    Our first client’s face to face feedback (which can be found in Testimonials had me in tears of joy, as I listened to her story and how the Essentially Lili product had helped her in such a short space of time.

    Since then, we have been asked to make so many other products that are now in the Essentially Lili Range.  There is feedback about the various products in the Testimonials part of the website which we hope you will enjoy reading.

    It has been a roller-coaster journey so far, with mixed emotions of joy and frustration. We have had to juggle the time around our young family and studies.We have been building the brand and reputation, whilst creating and blending products.  The amazing stories shared by people make this journey all worth it.
