A Little Goes a Long Way

A Little Goes a Long Way

Our body butter seems to be flying off the shelf and is truly our number 1 seller.  It is what got us started, and is a main stay in our daily sales and with any luck, it will continue.  I guess the purpose of the article is that I wanted to highlight a key feature of the product.  That being that a little bit goes a long way.

If you are a current customer of ours you know that our products are made from all natural raw products.  We work really hard at ensuring that we have the finest, ethically produced, organic ingredients, and that we use raw product.  Our body butter, which is the base of all of our items, is made from raw unrefined butters, shea, cocoa, mango, etc.  When we make it, we essentially build the recipe by heating up the raw butters using strictly controlled temperatures.  Once all of the ingredients are at the right temperatures, we blend them thus creating the body butter.

Certainly integrity and honesty are high on our list of our personal traits and of those that work with With Love & Co.  Why would we not have the same attitude toward our products.  The benefit of forgoing the whipping process is that our body butter goes a long way.  Or as the sign in the picture states, “A little goes a long way”.

Come by one of our many farmers markets and test it out for your self.  Take a small pea size amount from one of our sample jars (lavender, sugar bear, lemongrass, coconut, toasted vanilla, healing balm) you will agree.  A little goes a long way at With Love & Co.

Postive Feedback Great Feeling

A weekend full of love

This weekend was the annual Summerlin Art Festival at the Downtown Summerlin Mall.  We were there on Saturday at our normal farmers market, and also on Sunday as part of the overall event.  I must say, these two days were the best days of the year.  We had a lot of fun meeting and interacting with what the thousands of people that came by the With Love LV booth.  Some estimates put it at 40,000 in attendance and I believe those estimates are conservative.  We had 4 people manning our booth and loved every minute, every customer, and every person that just stopped by to share a story and a bit of their life.  Absolutely awesome weekend.

Weekend Stories

A couple of comments and stories from the weekend:

Story #1

We had a mom stop by the booth with her three beautiful kids.  One of them, the smallest, unfortunately suffers from pretty severe eczema and the mom shared her story with us.  She told of the difficulties and the lack of success of other products at providing some relief to her toddler.  She has tried many different products and was considering a clinical trial that she had heard about.

We introduced her to our body butter and our other all natural line of products and the ingredients in the body butter.  She was desperate to provide some relief to her baby. With our 100% guarantee of a refund, she purchased the healing balm and off they went.

She reached out to us on Facebook and let us know that the Body Butter (healing balm) was working wonderfully and that in one day of use, the redness was all but gone on his knees and his face.

FBcomments    This one bit of success and feedback was worth the entire weekend to us.

Story #2

Several weeks ago a mom and her little girl stopped by the booth and bought some body butter.  Two weeks later they came by again and you could definitely she improvements in her hands.  However, we thought she would benefit and heal faster from the our newest product, healing balm body butter.  This weekend she stopped just to share her experience.

She also told us of having purchased a temporary stand-in product from a competitor of ours, and quickly realized that not all body butters are the same.  The mom also told us that she was purchasing more of the healing balm, and that we now had a lifetime customer.

Weekend Conclusion

This weekend was much better than we could have expected.  We loved the thousand of people that we met, our booth staff (Cheyenne, Jamie) were fabulous, and the countless stories and sharing of moments in lives was absolutely the best.  We look forward to seeing everybody at next years festival and remember, we are at Downtown Summerlin Farmers market every Saturday from 9 am until 2 pm.  See  you there.  s&t
