Over the past twelve months I have had the sincere pleasure of working with Simple Skincare in the USA as a brand ambassador. As an American citizen who has lived in the UK for over a decade, I came to know Simple through word of mouth. It wasn’t a blogger that clued me into the brand, it was actually a makeup artist who swore by their cleansing wipes. So you can only imagine how thrilled I was when the brand asked me to work with them on spreading the word in the United States. I thought to myself I had just landed the easiest role in the world… helping to spread the word about a brand that had always come so highly recommended to me by others.
Not only was being an ambassador for Simple an easy task, it was also a rewarding one. Over the past twelve months I have had the opportunity to learn a great deal about skincare from some of the leading experts in the field. I’ve had a chance to talk to women that are incredible role models in the United States. I’ve even been challenged to discover some new things about myself. For me, that has made this task one that I feel privileged to have been a part of.
Whenever I come back to the States (which seems to be happening monthly now), I find myself smiling when I pass the Simple Skincare shelves at Target. Last week a woman in front of me was picking up one of the moisturizers and I found myself telling her to buy the wipes as well. I then followed that with a few tips for cleasing and she said, “oh, are you a dermatologist or something?” No, she didn’t say it in a snarky way. I think she genuinely thought I sounded like someone who knew what they were talking about. I was surprised by what was coming out of my own mouth. I have never in my life engaged another shopper in a store. But this, I suppose, is what being an ambassador does to you.
My role with Simple may have come to an end but you will continue to see their products pop up here, there and everywhere around FFG. Once you find a good thing you would be ridiculous to let it go.
Thank you for a wonderful twelve months, Simple! Here’s to a rewarding 2013 for the brand in the USA and further afield.
