I have, bar none, the BEST customers on the planet.

Last week I spoke to a customer on the phone about an item in her order and we chatted for a bit, somehow I mentioned I was in Florida, and she then decided she wanted to send me some products from the company she is with -- Palmer Cocoa Butter products!! She figured that with me here in the Florida sun & heat, my skin could use some pampering. How sweet!!

Within a couple of days I get this box from her company and inside is no less than a dozen FULL SIZED items for moi!

I am SOLD on these products! The beauty of this brand is that you can find it pretty much anywhere -- even the grocery. But THE SECRET? These products REALLY WORK! I am just loving them! Thank you, Germaine!!

I got hand soap (which is now at my kitchen sink and its WAY BETTER than any other kitchen hand soap I've ever used), body wash (which is in my shower and I just LOVE it - really softens the skin even after you're out of the shower), three kinds of pump body lotions, three tubes of hand lotions (thicker than the all-over body lotions), two swivle-up cocoa butter sticks (perfect to keep in your purse for quick on-the-go hand therapy), and my new fave: believe it or not, the bottle of "Scar Treatment Oil". This stuff is the THICKEST oil I've ever seen. And you know what its GREAT for? I love putting it in the eye area at night or even dabbing a TEENY, TINY amount around the eyes in the daytime. Who knew??

So, ladies -- head out to your grocery store or discount drug store and check out a new old favorite -- Palmer's Cocoa Butter products! They are so affordable (I mean, like you wouldn't believe kind of affordable) and the products are wonderful! The packaging and branding may not be pretentious and glamourous, but when you get it home and simply have to use it, who cares if it works. And it does! :)

So, now after years of being somewhat envious when my hubby would come home from work with little freebies and giveaways and perks from other companies who'd send them things, now I have something, too!

I love my job...

Thanks for the tip. I love finding out about products that really work. Once I called a hotel in Laguna Beach, CA (The Montage) to ask them what kind of coffee they used...I fell in love with it while staying there. The chef called me back personally to tell me the brand. I googled it, and it was was way too expensive for me! About a week later, I got a huge package of the coffee from the exciting! Now that's customer service!

Hi "Bonjour Madame" - Yes! It was amazing of her to send such a large assortment of goodies! Really felt like Christmas in April! :)

Teri! How amazing to have had that coffee mailed to you!! Do you remember what brand it was? You have me (the coffee junkie) curious! :)

Fonte' Coffee Roasters, Seattle, Washington.
There are many blends. I think the Montage had their own "private" blend, but I can't remember for sure.

Scott goes there every January on business, (sometimes I'm lucky enough to tag along). Maybe he can snag us a few bags next year! ;D
