Meet Hilary Sifleet, November’s 20th Anniversary Competition winner! We had a chat to her about some of her favourite things, and how she felt when she found out she’d won $2,000 of Linden Leaves!How did you feel when you found out you had won this month’s draw?I thought I was being pranked when I found out I was drawn out as a winner for the Linden Leaves competition. I read the email about three times before believing it and telling my husband.Tell us a little more about yourself?I live in the Waikato with my husband Russell and our little boy Datsun (who is a 2 1/2 year maltese X).What are some of your favourite things?I consider myself blessed as I get to work from home, part time, grooming Datsuns ‘friends’ in my little salon that Russell and my father recently enovated from its previous life as a garage.What is your skincare routine?In 2013 I became interested in finding soft and natural products after being diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in Waikato Hospital by their neurologist. Once diagnosed I realised that my immune system was still in over drive trying to fight off the orginal viral illness that struck me down at the beginning.This lead me down a pathway of trying to remove many chemically laden products from my life as I could. From doing this process my body was given the chance to start to recover. This impact lead me from being physically unable to get out of bed in the mornings, to a place where I can work part time and if I pace myself, spend quality time with my friends and family.Though days are still a struggle, it’s products like Linden Leaves that have helped improve the quality of my life. I no longer find odd red patches appear on my body or have skin that is overly sensative to the weather around me. And although some may find this unbelievable, it’s when I go back to using the products I used to use that I get light headed and break out in a rash.What is your favourite Linden Leaves Product?By far the product I most love by Linden Leaves is the Eye Rescue Serum. It has help lift the bags I have from lack of restorative sleep. A sneaky little tip, I put mine in the fridge and it really helps waken me up.Be sure to stay subscribed to our newsletter for 4 more chances to win $2,000 worth of Linden Leaves products!
