I recently taught an aromatherapy class at a local Traumatic Brain Injury support group. As a survivor, this has been a great platform for me to grow these past few years as a business owner. The next day I was called by a lady who had been to the group the night before. She had said that she loved my presentation and that she would like to schedule a pedicure at my spa in Tacoma.
She then backpedaled and made up an excuse of losing 3-4 pounds before making the appointment. I told her that as I remembered, she probably didn’t need to lose weight and that she looked great. She then went on to say that she wanted it as an incentive to reward herself with the pedicure.
After this nice lady asked me about my accident and experiences with recovery she told me that she does spa party’s too and that she is a licensed Cosmetologist as well. I thought this was great!
Then came the sales pitch…….
I ended up meeting with her yesterday. Went through the sales pitch gracefully. I gave her compliments that she was such a great and friendly salesperson and that she will be very successful. I told her that she had great marketing skills and that if she wanted to, she could work with me on my next spa party…..
She then, turned it around to me and was wanting me to purchase the product and then sell it to my clients….
Do you think she took my vulnerability and used it against me? Her products are not natural and organic like mine. I immediately began sneezing and coughing when she applied it on me. I did not like the smell and it made me feel yucky like other products with chemicals in them…The products claim to be 89% natural and paraben free. I read them, I disagree…
I really do like this woman and I respect her passion. I have my own passion too. I use and sell natural and organic products that retail for half of the price of her brand of products. I take great pride in the services that I do. I also take comfort in knowing that the products I use are guaranteed and “good for you”. I test all products on myself first before I use them on my clients. I also know how they are going to work before I use them on you as well.
I would like to say that I choose to sell Ethically and I love supporting my fellow entrepreneur by lifting each other up, referrals, and complimenting others. I like it when others do the same for me. I believe this is good business and supporting small business owners keep our city and State financially fit.

This company will rip you off. You will be told about being an agent and you purchase the kit and when you see what they charge your credit card acct. it’s more than what the price of the kit was. Hidden fees. You have no training. The products are sooo overpriced. The agents will promise you hundreds of dollars in sales. Trust me no matter how hard you try to sell these products you never will. I called the corporate office to send back my kit and did get info to send it back but was told it can’t be used or past 30 days. I had 5 days left to send back before my 30 days was up so I went to post office and paid to have it sent within 2 days. But what Seacret spa corporation customer service sent in an email to me said “no need to rush product back”, you know why they said this is because they did not want me to send back asap so they could make me keep the kit. Scammers!!!
Then when they credited my charge card they kept 149.00$. I called stating I sent a letter with the products and photographed each product showing no use and that I wanted every dime of 630$ back to my card. Seacret LLC cust svs rep said we keep 10% restocking fee and keep 49$ agent fee. I told her I’m not an agent give my money back. I called my charge card and said what a scam and what they did and I got the agent fee back but not the restocking fee. They will rip you off. This company should be watched by the Federal Trades Commissions office as a pyramid scam company. That’s what they are. Don’t ever trust them. You will be sorry!!!
I love my clients and customers! Thank you so much for your business!
