Today we’d like to introduce you to another fantastic HD Soap consultant, Betsy Thompson! Check out what prompted her journey to become an HD consultant.
I have been using HD Soap products for years, but it wasn’t until last November that I decided to jump on board and become a consultant myself!
For the last six years, I have owned my own clothing boutique. My background is in social work and counseling, but once I had kids, I wanted to stay home. I joined LuLaRoe and found a love for retail, as well as for social media marketing. I realized that I truly love sharing products with others that I love, and the added income felt good to contribute to our family’s expenses.
Fast forward to November of 2020. I was looking for items I could add to my boutique to offer to my current customers. I was in the shower using my Hilltop soap while I was thinking about this, and I laughed at how obvious the answer was. A product I love that I could share with my current customers?! HD obviously!
I don’t know why it took me so long to join, because these are products I had been using for years! I raved about the Activated Charcoal and Shaving Soap for so long and gifted it to so many; I have no idea why it didn’t occur to me that HD Soap would be a fantastic addition to my current shop.
What I love about HD is that the products are full of ingredients with which we are already familiar. As a mother of four, it is hard to stay on top of all of the things that come into contact with my kids, but it helps ease my mind knowing that what they are using on their skin is something that is good for them and has so many benefits. I have a son who suffers from environmental allergies and knowing what each product contains is a HUGE draw for me. On top of that, the list of ingredients in each product is nice and short. If there would be an allergic reaction, I can quickly go through and figure out what the cause might be through the process of elimination.
I also love the price point. It can be so hard to find good, quality products that don’t break the bank. HD wants to provide families with natural products that are affordable, and that is a mission I can get behind!
While my list of HD product favorites is long, my go-tos are always the ones I fell in love with initially. The Activated Charcoal Soap will always be on my list, as I love the smell of spearmint. I had tried activated charcoal products from other sources and the scent was a turn-off, so when I discovered HD’s, I was thrilled. My other favorite, the Shaving Soap, is much cheaper than the shaving cream you buy in the store; it is the perfect item to bring with you when traveling since it isn’t in an aerosol can. I love that it doesn’t dry out my skin and adds moisture, which is key for someone with dry skin.
Michigan winters can also be hard on the skin, and my kids get super chapped skin around their mouths. My daughter always has a Balm with her at school or in her bathroom at home to help restore her skin when it’s bothering her.
My other favorite product right now are the Bath Bombs. I have always been a shower girl, but since starting with HD I have taken far more baths to try out different products; I love that time to myself so I can just relax, and my skin feels glorious after! The Mini Bath Bombs are perfect, but for those nights I need to really indulge (those baths that include sipping a glass of wine), I go all out with the full-size Bath Bomb for extra moisture and relaxation!
As far as scents go, I am a floral scent girl through and through. Give me everything in the Blooms or Rose scent, and I am happy! However, I have branched out and have fallen in love with more earthy scents too, like Bamboo.
Overall, HD has been a fantastic addition to my shop! My customers love it, and I am thrilled to offer another product that I love. I love coming up with new product ideas and sharing them with HD, and I get excited about how to market the new products that come out! All in all, the only thing I would change is that I wish I had joined earlier!
