I get asked all the time if I sell the products I talk about (and recommend) the answer is “No” and there are a few reasons why. Let me explainFirst and foremost, everybody’s skin is different with individual needs. My main goal for starting Advanced Skin was to show people how to get the skin they have always dreamed of. I can’t do that by recommending just any product - just because I stock it I want to recommend the BEST product for you and your needs. Products may have the similar ingredients, but there are serums, creams, different percentages, different product mixes etc (the list goes on).
Secondly, I am uncomfortable pressing people to make a purchase to hit profit margins. When I worked for somebody else, I HATED the end of treatment “product push”. I hate it when people do it to me too and I vowed that once I was my own boss, I wouldn’t do it. I will always advise what products are best and then it is entirely up to the client whether they purchase them or not!
Skincare and Education is my passion, not sales! I am not a sales person, I’m an Aesthetician. And whilst I am selling my services and treatments (Of course I have to charge for my services as I have overheads, products to buy and machines to service), I will never let somebody have a treatment that isn’t right for them (just to make money) and I will never recommend the most expensive treatment to line my pockets!
Finally, I genuinely want to go on your skin journey with you. I want to have clients that keep coming back because they trust me, can see my passion and nothing makes me happier than seeing people getting results they didn’t think were possible I just don’t think this can exist if people think you are always trying to sell them something!
As I’ve said before, all of my recommend products have been tried and tested by me in the past, I have seen the results first hand. I will never recommend a product or procedure that is unknown, just because it may be fashionable and finally, I think we have enough bullshit celebrity endorsements out there. Ones that are motivated by money and this is confusing. We need to find a voice we can trust and I hope you will trust mine x
