You log on to Facebook and what’s that you see? ANOTHER friend of yours has joined a company, selling products to their friends & family, all while building their business from the comfort of their home or wherever they please, really. The allure to be able to work from home intrigues you, but you’re not ready to take that chance yet…Later that day, you’re added to another group and asked to host a party. Wait, how did this happen?
I know I know, like you, this was not my scene…but let me tell you something I quickly came to realize…These girls actually have really GREAT products, and they actually work! Crazy, right? They’re actually trying to help you and share something they are passionate about WITH you. Their sales isn’t just about them, trust me.
I had so many friends who swore by their products that I started actually listening. You know, power in numbers…there’s truth to that. My New Years resolution this year was to shop “small” more often. I mean…besides Target obviously. I was truly determined to try at least ONE product from every direct sales my friends were in to. And I did. My mailbox was full of products from 9 DIFFERENT companies. Okay, so maybe I got more than 1 product from each. But I quickly realized that these products were actually some of the best and I loved supporting my friends!
Below I have compiled a list of my FAVORITE (and most popular) products from a few of the companies. These by far are the products you HAVE to try in 2017, but I must warn you…you may become highly addicted to some of these ❤️
First on our list…
LipSense/Senegence! I KNOW you’ve seen these products. You probably have a friend who sells it & you’ve seen her eating a messy sandwich or drinking her wine…only to have flawless lipstick afterwards and no residue on her glass or food 🤔 This was a product I needed to try. I gave the color Bombshell a try. It held up like crazy. Through eating, the gym, baby kisses, drinking, etc. Honestly, had I not taken it off before bed, I would’ve woken up with pretty lips too.
Here is what Kirby Danielsson, LipSense Lady had to say!
“Senegence is a cosmetic and skin care company that is centered around women… Originally started in 1999 with a liquid lip color, it has grown to a full line of cosmetic products and skin care collections. Senegence now offers more than 300 products that are centered around anti aging, skin care, and beauty.
The premier product for SeneGence®, LipSense is a patented, amazing departure from conventional lipsticks and lip colors. LipSense is versatile in that you can mix shades to create a number of effects.
LipSense is waterproof and does not kiss off, smear off, rub off, or budge off! Does not dry out your lips – it works to restore the moisture content. Color lasts anywhere between 4 and 18 hours. Not tested on animals, wax and lead free and vegan!”

Arbonne! Arbonne quickly climbed the scale for me on favorite products & let me tell you why…they are free of harsh chemicals, they work amazing, and the scents of some of their bath products? Don’t get me started…it’s love! Katy Hess introduced me to some wonderful products, including things from their baby line! That’s right…your LO can have the best for their little bodies too!

UP NEXT! Look no further! You guessed it…Lularoe!
My friend Cassie first got me interested in these products, specifically the leggings! I’m all about being comfortable, and slipping into something so buttery soft?? Amazing! Here is what Cassie, Lularoe lover & distributor had to say!
Welcome to the Wonderful World of LuLaRoe, where we focus on being UNIQUE, COMFORTABLE and BLESSING lives!
In LuLaRoe we pride ourselves on expressing individuality and having fun with fashion. Unlike other retailers, we do not order form a catalog! We print uniquely designed patterns split amongst multiple styles such as leggings, dresses, skirts, tops, kimonos and cardigans and sizes ranging from XXS-3XL. Once we’ve made 5,000 pieces with one print, it will never be duplicated! Thus, giving you the opportunity to always find a piece that you not only will love, but shows off your individual style.
I joined LuLaRoe because a little under a year ago I was not happy to be me. I was uncomfortable in my skin and stayed safely tucked inside my comfort zone. Then I bought my first pair of LuLaRoe leggings on a whim and quickly an addiction formed. I felt empowered, confident and most importantly, in love with myself for the very first time. I jumped on the chance to start the dream of becoming a LuLaRoe retailer and the opportunity to bless woman’s lives. I wanted to help woman experience what I finally opened my eyes to see. We are all worthy of self love and acceptance and LuLaRoe can be that stepping stone.
I’m sure if you’ve heard a friend talking about LuLaRoe, they’ve told you all about the self proclaimed “buttery soft leggings”. Trust me they are as amazing as they sound! We use a unique brushing method that makes our leggings EXTRA soft! Between the sizes offered ranging from Child’s small to the newly introduced Plus Size Adults, and the thousands of prints available, everyone will be able to find a unique pair(s) to fall in love with.
We offer a large variety of skirts, but my favorite has to be the Madison! A fun, full and flirty skirt that has hand set pleats creates for optimal twirl and best of all IT HAS POCKETS! She is practical for everyday life, but is easily dressed up when the occasion calls for it.
When it comes to our long line of LuLaRoe dresses, the Carly seems to always win fan favorite, hands down. A loose fitting, swing dress featuring a subtle high/low hemline leaves you with endless possibilities. Belt it to show off your natural waist, knot it at the bottom to show off you leggings underneath, or wear her as is and experience comfort and flow in a dress you’ve never experienced before.
LuLaRoe is my life! I love to make outfits just for inspiration or tailored exactly to your wants and desires. I would be honored if you would choose me to help you find your very own LuLaStyle!
Blessings! LuLaRoe Cassie Jo Schindler
