July 2017: Summer Love

IMG_2144

Hello again! Did you have a fun-filled July 4th?!

Hopefully you’ve been enjoying plenty of summer fun with your friends and family. We’ve been experimenting with lots of fun stuff around HDHQ, and that usually means our wonderful customers are in for a real treat. Without further ado, let’s jump into July’s products!

IMG_2109

First up is our only re-release for this month: say hello again to the GRAPEFRUIT & MINT SQUARE BAR! If you were a fan of last month’s Morning Mix scrub, you will be pretty happy about this soap. This moisturizing soap uses our olive oil glycerin base, which makes it a great all-over bar. This bar lets you enjoy the many natural benefits of both peppermint and pink grapefruit essential oil in one perfect package. We then add grapefruit zest and some mint leaves to develop a really fresh, amazing scent. Stock up on this limited edition bar because when it’s gone, it’s gone!

Next up is a brand new soap for Hilltop; let me introduce you to our HEMP & TEA TREE SQUARE BAR! This smooth glycerin soap is enriched with hemp seed oil, and that means your skin will appreciate an extra boost of antioxidants and omega-3s. We’ve added some tea tree essential oil to this bar so that you can enjoy all of its wonderful benefits, too. When you feel this soap on your hands, you will notice that the bar is very soft, smooth, and luxurious, and that the scent is very light and natural. I think you will really love this new bar!

Our last item for the month is one of our new ESSENTIAL OIL ROLLER BALLS! Lots of people find that peppermint essential oil has some really amazing health benefits (like helping to soothe a headache or nausea, or maybe develop a sense of calm). We use olive oil and jojoba oil to dilute the essential oils to a safe concentration for application directly on your skin. The 10mL rollers are a great way to keep your favorite essential oils on hand all the time because they easily slip into any purse or pocket. In addition to the Peppermint Roller that you received, we will be carrying a line of oil rollers in a variety of our essential oil blends: Balance, Clear Your Mind, Lavender, and Sweet Citrus. You can keep all of your favorite Hilltop essential oil blends on hand all the time with these fun rollers!

Remember, if you sign up for our VIP Soap Club, you could receive all of these new releases at a great discount before they are released to the public! 

We’re excited about all of our goodies for this month and hope that you enjoy them! It’s been great getting to slow down and enjoy our summer with friends and family, and hopefully you have too. Until next time!

Happy creating,

June 2017: Old Friends, New Favorites

Hello, friends!

I don’t know about you, but we’re getting pretty excited for summer break around here. I think you’ll find that a lot of the products in this month’s VIP are going to be super useful as we transition into spending more and more time outdoors!


First up in the June VIP is a fan favorite: the HIMALAYAN SEA SALT SQUARE BAR! Made with a goat’s milk base and scented with jasmine essential oil, the Himalayan Sea Salt bar is rich in vitamins and minerals with a delicate floral scent. It’s the perfect blend of scrub and soap in one delightful package!


The next item for June is our classic COOL CUCUMBER SQUARE BAR! We combine cucumber and aloe with our olive oil glycerin base to create a super-soothing, moisturizing bar. This bar’s cooling effect is the perfect remedy for skin that’s been in the sun too long, so you’ll definitely want to keep it on hand all summer long. When you need relief from too much fun in the sun, reach for Cool Cucumber.


Hopefully you love our next release, because you can prevent major sunburn altogether with our UNSCENTED SUNSCREEN! We’re giving our VIPs a travel ready one-ounce tin of our Unscented Sunscreen that’s perfect for keeping in your purse, diaper bag, or backpack. Customers will be able to purchase the Unscented Sunscreen as both a lotion bar and in the one-ounce tin on the website, so everybody can stay protected from the sun this summer. Our sunscreen provides about 20-30 broad spectrum SPF (just remember to reapply your sunscreen regularly, especially if you’ve been swimming or sweating!).


Next up is a new lippy that I know you will love: enjoy a tube of our brand new MARGARITA LIP BALM! Made with olive oil, our Margarita lip balm goes on smooth and packs a delicious punch. Cinco de Mayo is over, but this lets you keep a fresh margarita on hand at all times.


Our last new product will be great for those minor cuts and scrapes that happen all over the playground: meet our brand new LANOLIN BALM! This ultra-thick salve is going to be your best friend when it comes to intense healing. The potential uses for this balm are endless; it’s equally awesome at treating cracked cuticles and soothing eczema as it is for providing relief to nursing moms. The Lanolin balm will be available in both two and four ounce tins.

HUGE NEWS!

We are proud to announce that Hilltop is partnering with Kalamazoo Candle Company to release our very first candle! Appropriately named SUMMER, this candle is a lush combination of invigorating citrus and lovely floral notes. Grab your Margarita lippy and a Summer candle and pretend you’re experiencing your own island getaway.

Hopefully you’ve got some fun in the sun planned for yourselves, because you have all the products you need to keep your skin protected and refreshed. Until next month!

Happy creating,

Christine

New Product Alert! Sage Toner

Sage Toner
A bottle of Hilltop sage toner, one of 2017’s biggest hits!

We love getting product ideas from our consultants and our customers, and I’ve been receiving requests to create a toner for a long time. A consultant sent us a bundle of fresh sage, and the Hilltop Sage Toner was born!

Now some of you may be asking what is toner and why do you need it? In skincare, toners aid in cleansing, minimizing pores, evening out skin tone, and refreshing the skin. Who doesn’t like that?!

There are only two ingredients in our toner: sage and distilled water. Sage is a powerful herb, and there are so many reasons we chose this for our first toner. First, sage can be really helpful in regulating an oily complexion, so if you have been battling acne or even just unwanted shine, consider adding the sage toner into your skincare routine. The next reason we fell in love with sage is because of its anti-aging properties! Sage contains antioxidants that can help minimize wrinkles and fine lines (and anything that can help our skin look younger and more refreshed is worth trying!). I could carry on all day about how great sage is, but I’ll wrap this up by pointing out that sage is naturally antibacterial and can fight inflammation. This is perfect for skincare because it soothes itchy skin (say, from eczema or psoriasis).

A lot of people have asked where toner fits into their skincare routine (and remember, different skin types call for different routines!). We recommend starting with a clean face, so grab your favorite Hilltop soap and get scrubbing! Follow up with Sage Toner. Some of our customers mist the toner directly on their face, while others like applying it with a saturated cotton ball; the choice is yours! (Using a cotton pad or cotton ball will really help you remove any leftover residue from cleansing; follow up with a mist directly to your face if you want an extra burst of freshness.) The next step in my routine calls for applying Hilltop’s Eye Serum under my eyes, followed up with my favorite Hilltop moisturizer, the Olive Oil & Orange Balm. You can pair any of your favorite Hilltop products with the Sage Toner to customize your routine.

The reaction to the Sage Toner has been overwhelmingly positive from our customers and consultants. You’ll find that the scent is soft and fresh and very subtle, and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite products!

Let us know how you use your Sage Toner!

Oh May, Oh MY!

MAY 2017 VIP RELEASE Oh May, Oh My!

combo
If you feel like it’s been ages since we had a VIP, you’re basically right.

Between celebrating our fourth birthday with March Madness and everyone going bonkers over Bring Back My Bar in April, our last VIP shipment feels like it happened forever ago. We are ready to get back into our regular rhythms again, but first let me say “THANK YOU!” for all of your excitement and enthusiasm over the past several weeks!

Our March sales were the highest ever, and we welcomed a few hundred new Facebook fans with several fun giveaways. We love celebrating with you and can’t wait to see where the next year takes us.

morning mix
On to the products for this month! I’m guessing more than a few of you will remember the limited edition MORNING MIX SCRUB! Last year I mixed up a batch live on the FOX-17 show Morning Mix, and I had several customers request that it be brought out of retirement.

Morning Mix is a sugar scrub flavored with grapefruit and peppermint essential oils, plus grapefruit zest and mint leaves. The sugar makes it a great scrub for using anywhere you need a little exfoliation, and the refreshing scent is the perfect pick-me-up.

Be sure to stock up if you enjoy it! (Consultants have been known to keep a jar on reserve in their freezer!)

mintjuelp
Next up is another classic: the MINT JULEP LIP BALM! The Kentucky Derby will be over in a flash, but you can keep a mint julep on hand all the time with this lippy! With muddled mint leaves, some powdered sugar, and a hint of bourbon, you can celebrate Derby Day all year round.

(With or without a giant floppy hat; that’s totally your call.)

Chamomile1
Another fan favorite is making its comeback for May: the CHAMOMILE SQUARE BAR! This lightly-scented bar is so great at healing skin irritations because it uses our goat’s milk base; also, chamomile essential oil is great at soothing eczema, along with having antibacterial and antifungal properties. This limited edition square bar is always a fan favorite, so if you like it, be sure to purchase a few extra bars!

bath tea
Our last product for the month is our brand new BATH TEA! Your Bath Tea package includes three single-use tea bags to enrich your bath time. Perfect for relieving tension and encouraging relaxation, you just need to drop a tea bag into a hot bath and let it steep.

**If you’re looking to amp up the impact of your bath tea, steep it in a mug of boiling water before adding it to your bath!

Your body will benefit from the herbs and Epsom salt, and the essential oil blend of chamomile, lavender, and rose contributes to an overall calming experience. Some of our testers loved the scent so much they used the bath tea as a sachet; there are multiple ways for you to fall in love with Bath Tea!
That’s it for this month! You’ll see a package from us again in June! if you are not apart of our VIP yet what are you waiting for?!  Purchase your VIP today.  Click on this link for a short cut! Don’t forget to list your FAV consultant at check out, to give them credit!

Put Down your PHONE!

Put down your PHONE Challenge.

I appreciate EVERYONE’S love for their phone use, but I do want to ask ONE HUGE question: Of all the business savvy people you know and emulate and desire to be more like….Do they run their ENTIRE operations off of a 5 inch flat surface that can fit in their hand?

No???

Neither should you!

Those who are successful in this industry are not operating solely from their 5 inch flat surface in their hands either.

Success in this business is not about “fast”, you can throw a post up on Facebook or how “convenient” it is that you can sell from your phone while you play at the park.

Those are perks. YES!!!

But it is also about relationships, customer service and good solid business practices.

Which means solid bookkeeping, typing and less swiping. Sitting, thinking, and pondering.  . Finding Balance.  Building Relationships.  And PUTTING DOWN THE PHONE.

For 7 Days our team accepted the daily challenge and they grew their Hilltop Business.  Outside of their phone.

Are you in a rut with your DS Company?  Check out our 7 daily challenges, adapt them for your small business and try a few out. You will love it.

Ready? Set! GROW!

Day 1: BOOKEEPING:

Take 20-30 min EVERY WEEK to sort and organize receipts.

Do you use Google Sheets? icloud or One drive?! You should utilize these tools immediately! If you have your bookkeeping stored on a drive like this you can access from ANYWHERE, even from your beloved PHONE, for Bookkeeping on the go.

Best way to set it up? Desktop. Spread those receipts OUT, give yourself SPACE!

Track your sales, Sales tax, expenses, mileage, and any other write-off’s you may have. If you take the time to do it evey week….it will still suck. 😉 But it will be done, and that is an amazing feeling. #justdoit #putdownyourphonechallenge

Day 2: BE THANKFUL:

Most consultants are coming off of a Super exciting March, and sales and contacts exploded! 2 tasks for Today. 1.) Create and maintain a customer database. You can go simple with a notebook OR start an excel spreadsheet. Keep names, contact info and a list of their favorite products, a wish list ect. 2.) Pick 3 any people from your database and write them a thank you. Or a letter of HELLO, if it’s been a while. Make sure you snail mail. No matter the age, everyone likes to get fun mail!

Day 3: Stop the Hustle:

Today, put down your phone and have FUN!!! NO WORK. You need balance and slowly your business can take over. And sometimes, in March (Hilltop’s Busiest time of year), that’s ok. But it’s NOT March, or October, or November. So for a few hrs today. Clock out. Enjoy life. Read a book. Go out for dinner. Have fun. You deserve it.

Day 4: Personal Pamper Time:

This goes without saying, and you already ROCK at this—>>> because SAMPLES SELL! But did you know that sometimes we forget to TRY and use our OWN products?! TRUE STORY. So for TODAY. I want you to have a personal HILLTOP PAMPER session. For you can’t sell what you don’t know. Pick a product that you’ve never tried…and give it a whirl. Then sample the left-overs to some friends!

Day 5: Get Centered: (originally written on a SUNDAY, but it works for ANYDAY)

Sundays are the day I get centered. How do i do that? Church, time with family and loosely scheduling the week ahead. On Sunday I make a lists, some on paper, some just a mental list of my goals and what I would like to get accomplished. Stores I need to hit for supplies, different meetings i have and consultants I want to touch base with. It is such a great feeling to be organized. Then on Monday morning when i am driving to work. I can (figuratively, because i don’t litter J) chuck that list out the window.

Why? Because I give each day to God. Every morning I pray that His will be done and that I accept MY to-do’s may not. No expectations. No anxiety. And lots of grace, allows me to look at everything as a gift from Him. So, get centered. Have goals. And be completely OK when He takes you somewhere different next week. Because your plans, your list, your goals….may not be His. 😉 Enjoy your Sunday! #putdownyourphone #godgrace #hisappointments

DAY 6: SOCIAL MEDIA PLANNING

Plan ahead social media posts. Take 20-30 min, a pen and paper. Think back to those products you’ve sampled this week, think about the recent ones you’ve only just recently tired. Plan 4 creative posts, BEFORE you jump on your phone. Think, what picture can you use. Plan your text. Is it a question? Do you love puns? Is it fun? Interactive? Engaging? Plan your what day you will use the post, what time ect. Then sit down and do them all at once. Save your images, ideas on your google drive and post when you can, with ease! You can even schedule them in advance!!! So cool what a Facebook PAGE CAN DO! #putdownyourphonechallenge #socialmedia #plantosavetime

DAY 7: THIS IS A REAL JOB

Last one! And you’ve done it! Time to Put Down Your Phone!

A HUGE draw about DS selling is the flexibility that it offers, and it BOY is that nice….but are you scheduling specific WORK Hours?

It is important to have balance and that is what this challenge has been about!

Starting to treat your Hilltop Opportunity like THE REAL business venture it is! Today, put down your phone and make a schedule. Figure out when you are going to specifically dedicate hours, min, days to your HD business. Try to work during those hours you’ve set aside, as if you were going to a “real” job.

If you work best at 2pm-4pm. Awesome. Don’t even waste your time with other parts of the day. Work those hours diligently and enjoy the rest of your day! The more you treat this like the “real” job. The more it will BE YOU REAL JOB! 😉

I hope you LOVE working your business outside of your Facebook Page and ALL know there is SOOOOO much more to running your own company than being able to “do it all” from your phone.

 

Square Bars GALORE ~ a new installment of #hdbehindthescenes : Square bar sale

 

What an AMAZING DAY!!!

It had been 2 years since our last “bring back my soap” sale.  2 years ago, we had less than 20 consultants and a dozen or so different flavors of soap.  Our spring square bar sale was rather successful and fun, but it was A LOT of work.

Last year, near the end of March, I was DROWNING.  I did the nearly the whole thing by myself. Dan would come in after he worked his day job, to help. When I finally had time to breathe…I said to Dan.  “We need to hire someone, for real.  Or we need to assess how big we are going to be”  And we found Kelly.

Kelly has been an amazing asset to our team and adding her has REALLY allowed us to push the boundaries.  Since Kelly has come on, adding people to our HDHQ team hasn’t been so scary!  As we grow in the field with our consultants, we grow here at HDHQ too!

Another move I had to make after March 2016, was I had to cut the April VIP too.

What a smart move that was!!! March 2017 was SOOOOOOO enjoyable. Not having to rush a VIP out, in all the regular March Madness.  It was delightful. But, not having a VIP did leave us with out a Promo for APRIL and promos are kind of our thing.

Through some chatter in our consultant group, and brain storming after hours with Dan in late February, We decided to surprise the Consultants with a Square bar event!! Our Promo for April.

We were going to resurrect the “Bring back by Square Bar ” Event.  And OH, BOY was that announcement the most fun ever.

It caused sleepless nights, soap nightmares, TOTAL SOAP Panic, LAUGHS, but most importantly it produced SALES!

AND

website crashes

We BROKE our OWN WEBITE!!!! <<<—Huge goal of mine. 🙂 #notkidding.  The best part was at 6:00am, on Friday morning there was a group of us. WIDE AWAKE. Cheering each other on, some with babies in arms, coffee in hand and yes, there were kids late for school.  Mine included.

The consultant conversations behind the scenes were the BEST PART and I just want to share a clip or two of what it’s like. There are around about 130 of us, in our group and it is SOOOO fun.

Here is a sneak peak of our lives within our group.  6:08am the fun began.

6:08am

POST: WE ARE CRASHING YOUR SITE!!!!

Me:  I was worried the timers wouldn’t work!

Consultant #1:  Just keep refreshing! (I’ve been up since 5am for this)

Two more consultants chime in : ME TOO!

 

I’m THRILLED at this point, but from my side….no actual orders are getting sent to gmail…but i’m not freaking out…yet.

**Ding**

Oh, the sweet sounds of Gmail notifications…a few orders beep through.

6:10am

Consultant Post #1: Where’s the Minty Milk, and Lemon Basil

Me: Page 2 and 3 of square bars

Consultant#1: AHHH! phew, I thought there was only one page.

Me: Just BREATHE

6:12am

Consultant #3:  I seriously set an alarm for this and the SITE IS CRASHING!

6:13am

Consultant #4: My orders is IN!!!!

ME: Sweet room for someone else on the site

**DING** **DING** Tons of notifications now from my phone

6:15am

Consultant #5: Smart to do this on a Friday, instead of a Monday!

Me: Who has energy for this on a Monday!

6:17am

Consultant #6: Mine is IN!!!!

6:20am

Me: Gosh, you gals sure know how to make a Gal feel special! I’ve always wanted to crash my own website!

Consultant #2: And done! Happy Square Bar day that was more intense than going to Walmart on thanksgiving for a 1500 piece Lego set

Consultant #7 Yeah, I am not a morning person, but I couldn’t sleep, and now I’m wired! haha

Consultant #2 I’m on coffee 3 if that tells you how much I love morning

6:23am

Consultant #8:  I noticed that too! (crashed site) So glad that I got my order in! I don’t think this soap is going to last long!

Consultant #9: whew, that was exhilarating!

Consultant #10: Do you realize how incredibly torturous it is to wake up early on a morning you can’t even have coffee? But mine’s in.

And the conversations when on. The minutes clicked forward and by 6:39am we had COMPLETELY sold out of 3 set of our square bar scents.  And by 7:00am, 60 orders had come through. **DING***

That is an ORDER A MINUTE  for SOAP.

The sale lived up to the hype and the bad dreams!

Consultant number #11 @ 6:47 am: I literally had a dream that my fingers were too big for the keys and I couldn’t order for my customers.
It’s all good though….all ordered now

Consultant #1 : I have been having soap nightmares all week! haha

A few other Consultant had dreams of missing out too!

The “Bring Back my Square Bar” was a HUGE SUCCESS. It was so much fun. It is SAFE TO SAY –>>> you can expect another Bring Back my Square Bar event.

but WE (and by we I mean ME and Dan) are tired.

SO in April of 2018, we will do it again!!~ We will have ~MORE SOAP~ MORE FLAVORS ~ and We will have ~~MORE ~~ consultants 🙂 so we will probably crash our site again!

But it will be COMPLETELY worth it.

**March 2017** 4 New Products 4 You

It’s our BIRTHDAY MONTH! A lot of people use the phrase March Madness and are referring to basketball, but here at Hilltop, when we say MARCH MADNESS we are talking about the insane amount of goodies and products we are about to give away! IT’S MADNESS! Here is glimpse of what’s to come in the next few weeks! (Be sure to follow along on ALL of our social media outlets; Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat will all have giveaways!) For hosts, we have DOUBLE HOST DOLLARS if you have a party with one of our amazing consultants. Because we love our customers so much, we will be giving away a FREE 3 MONTH VIP MEMBERSHIP the weekend we release our new design book!!! Follow along for your chance to win.

march2017
But you are practically a winner already because you have FIRST crack and trying all four of our new products and if you LOVE them, be sure to stock up on them this month. This is our fourth year releasing our famous HONEY GOATMEAL SPLIT SQUARE BAR. It is our ONLY layered bar of soap, and this is the ONLY month you can buy it. The best way to describe this soap is to say if you LOVE the Honey Kiwigranate and you LOVE the benefits of Vanilla Goatmeal…you will NEED THIS BAR. It’s a blend of BOTH! Who doesn’t love a two-for-one?!
Next up is our first TONER. What do you use a toner for? Toners are used to cleanse the skin, minimize pores, even skin tone, and refresh. Our toner is made with SAGE. The sage herb can help reduce the signs of aging, like wrinkles and fine lines. It’s great for oily skin and possesses antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties to help with acne. Sage is also known to help soothe the symptoms of eczema…if you have an itch, give it a spray! To use this toner you can spray directly on your face or onto a cotton ball. It’s great for using after moisturizing and under your makeup.
You’ll also enjoy a new FROM SCRATCH SOAP in a familiar scent. Our SWEET CITRUS was one of the first essential oil blends I perfected for Hilltop. You can find it in our Citrus lotion, our number-one selling Sweet Citrus scrub, and NOW in a From Scratch soap! I think you will LOVE the way this soap bubbles, gently exfoliates, and invigorates the senses. (For less than $25 you can have the perfect Citrus bundle!)
Lastly, I’m excited to introduce a new DEODORANT scent. Since its release, our Cypress deodorant has been loved by many. While it was made to be gentle on the armpits, it has SUPER strength to stand up to life’s most stressful moments. Because of the success of our BALANCE essential oil blend released in January, and the deodorant properties of patchouli, adding this blend to our “gray deodorant recipe” seemed like a natural thing to do. Patchouli is known to eliminate and mask body odor, all while removing toxins. I think you are going to love the sweet scent of the blood orange and the spice of the ginger root that brings this blend full circle.

 

march2017
That’s all for March Madness! We will be back in May with a brand new VIP! Happy creating, Christine

February: Bringing TONS of Moisture

February is a month where we need moisture the MOST.

We also need the sun, as we have just completed a RECORD here in Michigan for the most cloudy days in a row at eight. While we can’t control if we will see the sun on any given day, we CAN control how we care for our skin, and in these dry winter months we need extra moisture (and LOTS of it!). This month we’re bringing you an oldie and a goodie and TWO new scents chosen just for you by your favorite Hilltop Consultants.

cmsb

Our CHOCOLATE MILK SQUARE BAR is back for year #3. People love this bar because it is made with our famous goat’s milk base. Because it is made with only goat’s milk base and cocoa powder, you can have a fine exfoliation and enjoy its gluten-free qualities. Have you missed our Smelly Soap? This is a grown-up version. It smells like a real chocolate bar, so be sure to remind your littles that while it is made with chocolate, it is not going to TASTE like chocolate! This limited edition bar will be gone before you know it, so as a VIP member you get to try it right away and then you’ll want to buy a few more bars on February 10. Get some before it is SOLD OUT!

cymlb

Our next product is a second scent in our super popular lotion bar. I love to include our team of consultants as much as I can in the product development phase, as they are the people who share Hilltop with their friends the most! I listed a few options and we took a vote on what scent they would like to see opposite our grapefruit-scented Lotion Bar. The winner of our first Consultant Choice Scent was our Clear Your Mind essential oil blend. This amazing combination of lavender, peppermint and lime will awaken your senses and bring you clarity each time you moisturize. Enjoy your LIMITED EDITION CLEAR YOUR MIND LOTION BAR! 🙂

csgm

Our last new release is also a Consultant Choice Scent! I’m super excited about this one because I personally LOVE this combo. I’m not sure if you remember our Morning Mix Scrub from last February, but this is the same blend: say hello to our GRAPEFRUIT & MINT COCOSHEA BUTTER. These two scents paired so nicely with the chocolate notes in the CocoShea. Now, why did we need to do a butter?! Well, our time is coming to the end for the butters. Our butters are a seasonal item and while we LOVE the butters…they do not like heat. In about 6-8 weeks we will no longer be able to ship them to certain areas of the country, so get them while you can and don’t forget to order this seasonal product while we have it in stock!

Dusting off the Blog for a new installment of SHOW ME YOUR HILLTOP!!!

I think this may actually be my first post of the new year. As soon as the holiday season wrapped up we jumped right into our final prep for our Maker’s Mart competition.  I can’t wait to tell you all about that experience!  We have a NEW PRODUCT release coming on FRIDAY so I will update the blog with THOSE products and new items from last month. So I have TONS and TONS to write about.

In our Consultant Group, Team members are sharing incredible stories about how their dry winter skin has never felt better, and I thought yesterday we need to Shake off the dust and bring you another installment of “Show ME your HILLTOP!”

So Kelly L. from Otsego, MI Start us off right!

Tell us a little bit about your Hilltop routine.
Every day I use a goat’s milk soap bar in the shower. It leaves my skin moisturized for 24 hours. I used to be super dry, especially on my legs. I would tear my legs up itching them at night. It would leave awful scratch marks. My mom has the same issue. I no longer itch, after starting Hilltop products. I have known about Hilltop now for almost a year in December. I’m seriously in love with their products. My daughter also suffers from moderate to severe eczema, and she has benefited greatly from the goat’s milk square bars, the coconut, tea tree & lavender stick balms. We love the lotion bar and shampoo bar as well. We also love love love love the Hilltop lippys. The best lip balm on this planet, hands down. Our favorite is the coconut summertime. We are also in love with the new eye serum. AH-amazing stuff!
kellyl
What Hilltop product(s) are in your purse/pockets/backpack right now?
Right now I have the summertime lippys, the cherry summertime lippys, and the coconut balm tin on hand.
What Hilltop product(s) do you want to try that you already haven’t?
I want to try the bath bomb. We love the fizzy salts, and really excited to try the bath bomb next!
If you could only have one Hilltop product for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I would say either the lip balm or the goat’s milk soap. I couldn’t pick just one. Not even possible!
Thank you SO much KELLY we love that you love Hilltop!  Watch for your goodie box to arrive in the mail!
We want to hear what you are loving about Hilltop!
Click on the link below to share your experience, and if you are chosen you may get your very own box of goodies as a thank you!
