My Favourite Forever Living Products

I was asked this week which Forever Living products I take regularly. After all I only joined Forever originally as I loved the products and wanted to get them cheaper for myself (I am a bit stingy with my money!) I have been a distributor now for over 8 years and my favourite products have not changed much over all that time, so here are my top 5 products that I couldn’t live without…….

Drinking Gel – I start my day everyday with a shot of my chosen Aloe drinking Gel. For me I take Forever Freedom, which is flavoured with Orange and has added glucosamine, chondroitin and MSM. This is great for people with an active lifestyle and keeps me moving.

Forever Freedom

Forever Move – With my drinking Gel I take a handful of supplements – the main one being Move. This contains natural eggshell membrane (NEM) and curcumin turmeric (Biocurc), and again is aimed for people who are very active and like to keep moving as I do.

Forever Move

Arctic Sea – I am not a great fish eater, but I know my body can’t make omega-3 fatty acids, so I also take these each day as they contain the perfect balance of essential fatty acids EPA – which contributes to the normal function of the heart – and DHA – which contributes to the maintenance of normal brain function. My brain needs all the help it can get, especially right now with COVID-19 lockdown.

Arctic Sea

Bee Pollen – this is one of the first supplements I tried from Forever, and is still part of my daily routine. It is a nutritionally-rich substance that provides bees with everything they need to survive.   This pollen has then been combined with honey and royal jelly to create Forever Bee Pollen, and is something I take every day without fail. If I need a little boost mid afternoon then this is the supplement I reach for.

Bee Pollen

Vitolize for Women – as a woman of a certain age (clinging onto my 40s right now by the slimmest of margins) I take this blend of herbs, iron and vitamins which is designed with women’s health needs in mind. It also contains B6, which contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity. It seems to keep me well balanced and as I usually get a negative reaction to iron tablets this is just enough for me.

Vitolize

So these are my top 5 and all products which I won’t do without. They keep my body working well which is something I really need along with my good nutrition and Keto lifestyle. If you’d like the details or prices of any of the products then just get in touch or click on the images to check out my online shop.

Remember Forever is so confident in the quality of its products that we offer a complete 60-day money-back guarantee if customers are not entirely satisfied. Just return the unused product with the receipt to me within 60 days of purchase and I can sort it out for you if you bought through my online shop or direct from me.

Until next time, Aloe Aly.

Powerful and gentle, Aloe Sunscreen will keep the whole family protected, wherever the adventure leads.

Aloe Bio-Cellulose Mask

Forever’s Aloe Bio-Cellulose Mask provides potent hydration thanks to forward-thinking technology and natural ingredients. Its bio-cellulose fibres fit the contours of your face to deeply moisturise, and ensure every impressive botanical penetrates the fine lines and wrinkles that traditional sheet masks fail to reach. Through a process unique to Forever, aloe bio-cellulose mask’s formula fuses pure aloe and seagrass with the bio-cellulose fabric to soothe, soften and condition skin. This environmentally-friendly mask has also been enriched by a moisturising serum of green tea and horse chestnut that rejuvenates dull skin by combatting the signs of ageing and reducing the appearance of redness.

NHS Charities Together

Due to the global Coronavirus pandemic, Forever UK has decided to switch our online £1 charity donations from the Bush Fire Relief Fund to NHS Charities Together Emergency Covid-19 Urgent Appeal. This is for the UK and for Northern Ireland only, with the Republic of Ireland returning back to Rise Against Hunger.

The switch took place week commencing 18th May 2020

What is the NHS Charities National COVID-19 Urgent Appeal?
NHS charities are the legal way that the NHS receives, holds and spends charitable funds. The beneficiaries of NHS charities are NHS patients and funds are spent in addition to core NHS funding, they do not replace government money. There are 230 NHS charities in the country.

NHS Charities Together is the national umbrella organisation for these charities, working closely with the Charity Commission, Department of Health and Social Care, and BHS England, Scotland and Wales to represent, champion and support the NHS’ official charities.

Key Messages for COVID-19: Four ways to help the NHS

  1. Follow NHS and Government guidance on how to keep yourself and others safe
  2. Support your family and friends through your social messaging and communications networks
  3. Support your local NHS – there are over 200 NHS charities dedicated to supporting patient care at their hospitals, ambulance trusts, mental and community health bodies.
  4. Fundraise in aid of or donate to the NHS Charities National Appeal that acknowledges and supports NHS staff, volunteers and patients impacted by COVID-19

How can Forever Business Owners (FBOs) and customers donate in the UK?
From week commencing 18th May, FBOs and customers will be able to opt in to donate £1 whilst purchasing products via the online store. This can be done by following the below instructions:

  • Click on the Buy Forever Living at the top of this page
  • Click Enter Shop and choose Great Britain
  • Add selected products into your shopping cart
  • When viewing the contents of your shopping cart, select ‘Add NHS Charities Together £1 donation’
  • The £1 will be added to the order total

How the funds will be spent

The NHS Charities Together work with Trustees, members and the CCLA to set up an emergency grants fund for members.

  1. Regular grants to NHS Charities – this will quickly grant our funds from the National Campaign to NHS charities to spend quickly on enhancing the wellbeing of NHS staff, volunteers and patients impacted by COVID-19 such as
    1. Funding wellbeing packs for staff, volunteers and on wards
    2. Supporting patients’ mental health through isolation
    3. Benevolence
    4. Other items identified by members of their NHS bodies that enhance wellbeing
  2. Post pandemic grants to NHS members – an amount of funds will be spent after the crisis on supporting the mental health and recovery of NHS staff and volunteers. This will be in the form of grants that provide respite, rehabilitation and mental health recovery of NHS staff and their families
  3. Grants to NHS charities to support their voluntary, care and hospice sector so that NHS patients leave hospital more quickly and safely, stay or remain out of hospital. Supporting the integrated care partnerships in this way significantly reduces stress on the NHS and provides the wrap around provision for patients which is vitally needed.

The Sun has come out!

I am really starting to lose track of how long we’ve been working from home now.  I think it might be 3 weeks tomorrow but it could be wrong – it’s feeling almost normal already which is very odd.

What is lovely is to see the sun is out – and although it is early April I am seeing lots of pics of friends and family looking a bit pink in the face.  It is important to remember that even here in the UK the sun can be stronger than you think and catch you out.

So here is a lovely picture of me in my back garden holding my Aloe Sunscreen, which is super kind to my skin, as it contains inner aloe leaf, as well as being water-resistant and has an SPF of 30.IMG_20200405_130022

It’s a good job it is water-resistant as although we are being careful and keeping a social distance from our neighbours, they happened to start jet washing their garden trampoline as my daughter and I sat out in the sun so we had an impromptu shower!

I know we are really lucky to have a garden where we can sit out in the fresh air – and many people aren’t as lucky – but please take on board the current advice and don’t drive to your local park, beach or beauty spot to enjoy the sunshine – if we all did that then the government will stop everyone from going out to exercise and the actions of the few will spoil it for the sensible many.

How are you coping with the getting out in the sunshine?  Please share your pictures with me, and if you haven’t managed to get any sunscreen at your local stores there is plenty in stock on my online shop – just click buy forever living and order for direct shipping to your home.

Stay Safe and Stay Home..

Coronavirus Update

You can see from my previous posts that’s it’s been a while since I blogged in here.   Since I joined 4Networking 3 years ago I have been concentrating on my other business, Silicon Bullet, where I help unconfident bookkeepers to use Xero and Sage software better.  I also got involved with running the networking meetings, which takes a fair amount of time, so my Forever Business took a back seat.

That’s the beauty of a business with Forever though.  You can pick it up and put it down as it suits you.

So why am I back blogging again now?

Well, I thought this would be a great place to record some thoughts and feelings whilst in lockdown, and let’s face it we don’t know how long we will be here, so any and all income streams I have need to be explored.

It’s funny, that as I have put my Forever business down I rarely sell any products. It’s something that if you don’t talk about it to people then you won’t find new customers, and those you had tend to drift away too. Well actually it’s not funny at all.  This is not an easy business, you need to work at it, and if you don’t work at it you won’t earn any money from it.

But in the last 2 weeks, customers have come out of the woodwork to order from me – and the most popular product is the hand soap.  With washing your hands so much some soaps can be so drying and not kind to the hands at all, so I’ve sold double figures of hand soaps in just over a week.  We also have stock at head office and deliveries can be made direct so there is no danger of spreading the virus.  It’s not megga bucks but right now every penny counts, and the customers who contacted me couldn’t get what they wanted at local shops – so everyone wins.

So how are you coping with the your ‘lockdown’ and ‘social distancing’?  Do leave me a message and connect and let’s all help each other through.

Update on MIT

Back in February 2017 I posted about changes in EU regulations concerning Methylisothiazolinone (MIT) in our leave on skin products.  This legislation is now changing again.

The New MIT Legislation

In July 2017 EU legislation was passed requiring Methylisothiazolinone (MIT) to be reduced to a specific percentage in all “rinse off” skin care products.  Forever has gone one step above and made the decision to completely remove MIT from all of their products. MIT is not considered to be harmful.  The background for the new formulation criteria of this ingredient in rinse-off cosmetic and personal care products is due to an “increased incidence of allergies” in some user.

The EU has determined that rinse-off products that contain MIT should be removed from sale by April 27th, 2018.

You can watch this video which covers Forever’s ethos on the ingredients we use in our products.

How does this affect your favourite products?

Forever is working to transition all affected products to new formulas by the stop sell date so that you will have no interruption in the supply of your favourite products. Some products, however, will be discontinued once the stock is depleted to make way for exciting new products currently being formulated in our 40th year of business.  The table below shows the list of products to be discontinued.

Discontinued products

Discontinued Products

Look out for future blog posts about the exciting reformulated products as they become available in the UK.  Favourites that I am looking forward to are the Aloe Bath Gelee, the Sonya Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner, and the Sonya Volumizing Mascara and Precision Liquid Eyeliner.

40 Years of Getting it Right *Competition*

Next year Forever celebrates its 40th birthday and to honour the occasion, they will be launching a New Year campaign called ‘40 YEARS OF GETTING IT RIGHT’. The campaign will run throughout the month of January and will revolve around our flagship and founding product, Forever Aloe Vera Gel. This gel has literally impacted the lives of millions of people – Forever got it right in 1978 when it was first introduced to the market, and 40 years later, they are still getting it right!427566_323028404422414_219087814816474_902641_18814447_n

The campaign will encourage you to join us in getting it right by taking a daily shot of aloe throughout January. We know that Forever Aloe Vera Gel’s unique formula is packed with so many nutrients, beneficial properties and 96% PURE aloe, that the impact it can have on an individual after just one month of consumption is astounding.

The campaign will operate on social media so make sure you keep an eye on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as we will be sharing aloe facts, tips and encouragement to help motivate you. A competition will also form an integral part of the campaign. The winner will receive an IPad and a C9, second place will win an IPad and third place will get a C9 programme. To be in with a chance of winning, you will be invited to submit a video or image of yourself taking Forever Aloe Vera Gel and uploading it to social media using the hashtag #AloeChallenge. We would love it if you could take part in this challenge.

We will be launching this competition at 10am on 1st January 2018 and it will close at 11.59pm on 30th January 2018; the winner will be announced on 31st January 2018 by Forever Living Products. Please be aware that participants only need to submit one photo or video linked to the hashtag to qualify for the competition, but they can, of course, post more if desired. The full terms and conditions will be available on request on 2nd January 2018.383477_245805568851936_100002674843798_441152_222950840_n
