Welcome to November! I would say it but I think we already know – given that tinsel and baubles are everywhere, mulled wine is being heated as I type (not in my house I hasten to add…it is 8.04am!) and Mariah Carey has come out of the back of the music cupboard – that a certain time of year is fast approaching. Tropic is ready for this busy and festive time, with all the new collections being specially selected to make buying for friends, family, colleagues, teachers and that secret santa gift as easy and fun as possible. And we don’t just stop there; we have lots going on into the New Year and beyond. So lots to tell you about – time to grab a cuppa and take it all in. As always please share all the news with those you think would be interested.
Christmas Shopping at my house
I’d like to invite you all to get into the festive spirit and make life as easy as possible for you by inviting you to come to my home on either Tuesday 20th November 10.00am-3.00pm and 7.00pm-9.00pm or Saturday 24th November 10.00am-5.00pm. Come and enjoy some mulled wine, festive treats, Mariah(!) and enjoy Christmas shopping in comfort. I’ll be making some FB events and inviting you so if we’re not connected there please connect at fb.com/tsckathrynbeniston Feel free to bring friends along too. It’s open house so drop in for part or all of the times (yes even 10.00-5.00!)
Of course I’d also love to do some Christmas shopping events at your house with your friends and family. No doubt you will be buying Tropic as Christmas gifts this year and as you do that with you friends and family, you of course get the 15% hostess allowance which means you get to ensure you are treated with what you want for Christmas for free! Bonus! We can play some bauble games, have chilled out pamper evenings, just shop, Tropic mince pie and coffee mornings – whatever you want to do I will accommodate. So get in touch to book your Christmas shopping date with me.
Oh – and do any of you work in office or businesses where I can come and bring the Tropic Shopping experience there? If you do please can you help me talk to the right people and arrange that. Maybe a lunch time in a canteen or a morning in the corner of the office. Or would you like to have a borrow bag and take it into the office on my behalf? All of these can be arranged and I can either donate some of the money to the work place charity or you can have the hostess allowance for arranging it.
What’s perfect for who?
Are any of you buying gifts for teachers or Secret Santa? Well both the Perfect Touch Collection (Hand Therapy, Nail Block and Nail Nectar) and the So Sleepy Temple and Pillow Collection (Temple Balm and Pillow Mist Spray) are perfect at just £20 and beautifully gift packaged. Pg 42/43 and 37 of the catalogue.
How about those with dry skin or those who love a bit of luxury…and cake!! The new Mini Whipped Body Velvet Collection is perfect. With 3 fragrances in 50ml pots and beautifully packaged, these body butters are just divine and already incredibly popular since their launch at just £28. You’ll be giving the gift of soft and sweet smelling skin with this one. Pg 33 of the catalogue.
What about for someone younger? Research has shown that the younger gebneration are taking more care of themselves in terms of their mental health and quality beauty products is helping with that. Our new Mini Bath Foam Collection give 3 100ml bottles of gorgeously fragranced 100% natural and pH balanced bubble bath at just £22. This has been our most popular collection since the launch and something I will be giving out to lots of people. Pg 33 of the catalogue.
And then of course those who want to sparkle this Christmas and New Year with beautiful eyes. We have the brand new and unique Eye Bright Collection which I use every morning and night. The Eye Work is a combination of the old Eye Refresh and Eye Revive, and the new Eye Dream is a thick overnight balm that works to take away lines, wrinkles and dark circles. A gorgeous collection with a saving of £17 meaning you can treat yourself to even more 😉 Pg 18/19 of the catalogue.
NB Due to the explosive growth of Tropic, the little kitchen we have is working at full capacity and we are operating at 10 working days for delivery. Please therefore don’t delay in getting your Christmas shopping started. For guaranteed Christmas delivery our cut off date is 13th December. You’ll be pleased to know we are in the process of fitting out our new home ready to move into it in the new year so Tropic will be able to continue to grow and develop and be back to our usual delivery times.
World Vegan Month
Do you know it is now World Vegan Month? Not everyone subscribes to this lifestyle, but for those who do Tropic is the perfect skincare and make up range. Being 1 of only 400 certified Vegan companies worldwide, we ensure everything we do complies with this, even down to the glue on our packaging wraps. So who do you know who is vegan and doesn’t yet know about Tropic? Who are you struggling to buy for this Christmas? Struggle no more. Please spread the word in the vegan community and put me in touch with those individuals for whom it is so important to find the right range.
Roadshow in January
As always, Susie is hitting the road with her HQ team and travelling the country to come and see us. These events are always popular, but with so many venues are also ‘intimate’. We hold them in the conference rooms of hotels and they are always free to attend. I’d love for you to come along as my guest if you are interested in knowing more about Tropic and hearing from Susie herself. The closest one to me is Coventry (not Birmingham as I may have told a few people) on Monday 7th January at 7pm (exact location to be confirmed). So please let me know if you, or someone you know, would like to be my guest on the night. Susie is an inspirational speaker and never fails to entertain and share her passion and enthusiasm for all that we stand for. If you live in different parts of the country then let me know and I’ll find the closest for you.
Ambassador Opportunity and Starter Kit Price Increase
As many of you know, I am always looking for the ‘right people’ to join my team and share the Tropic journey. The right people are those who love Tropic and want to share it with others – the rest is learnt/developed/comes with experience so don’t count yourself out if you fit in the first bit (which you do or I wouldn’t be emailing you!) When people join Tropic they buy the starter kit which is the complete skin care collection plus body smooth, business tools, web shop, training and ongoing support along with the rights to sell Tropic and make money from it. We never make a profit from people joining. And in fact, since the amazing new launch, the company isn’t even breaking even. They considered not putting the whole skin care range in the starter kit to remedy this, but they wanted new ambassadors to be able to share everything, so they have had to agree to a price increase instead. At the moment you get over £400 of products and all the above for just £160! I’ve said many times that I want to join again as it’s just amazing! Being fair, the price increase isn’t happening until February when it will increase to £198. So, if you or anyone you know, as been thinking about joining then now and by the end of January is definitely the time to do it. Please don’t delay but get in touch to talk it through with me. Go into the New Year with a new business and new focus with the best beauty company in the world (personal opinion but I think should be fact!)
Well that’s it for now. Those of you who have come along to pampers with me already sine the new products have come out will know that the new Deluxe Kit and the Eye Bright kit are making an incredible impact and I’m finding people are finding it makes sense to invest in both the eco versions of these kits on the night. My hostesses are getting their kits for free! So do get in touch to book your Tropic event with me and get into the festive spirit. Oh…and if you want to send any men my way then please do! That does sound wrong doesn’t it! 😉 If your man hasn’t a clue what to get you then ask him to give me a call and I can chat about the options with him (and if you want to send me a sneaky message telling me exactly what you want then I can work quietly with you on that 😉 ) 07725984935
Happy Vegan November everyone,
Love Kat x
