February and Current Updates

Current TAT is around 7-9 business days due to my absence, but should be back at 2-3 days by Tuesday. All orders received up until last Friday will be out by Tuesday and that's when the turn around time will be back to 2-3 days.

The end of the year and into the beginning of the new year are always trying times for me. We have birthdays galore (I have 4 children, and 7 nieces and nephews on top of that, not to mention other relatives and my bff's bdays and their kids, seems we were all born around the same time of year, lol) on top of holidays and a couple anniversaries, including my own. So please forgive me when orders are not moving as quickly as we'd all like.

New scents are coming that will be a couple valentine scents and many new Spring scents. I don't usually do spring, but this year I have felt very inspired. I can't wait to share them with you. I'll be adding them as soon as I receive my labels for them.

Also, beginning February 1st, the price for the bubbling scrubs will be increasing by $2. For a long time I have been selling them as 6oz sizes due to the fact that they were whipped and lighter. By the time you received your order, they'd deflate and they would look like the jar wasn't full of product. Well, I eventually reworked my formula for a more denser scrub, of course this allows for more product to fit into the jars and no deflating of the bubbling scrub. So in actuality, you are getting approx 8.5-9oz of product and not 6oz. This has been going on for well over a year, nearly 2. All the while, I have been eating up the costs. I can no longer due that, thus why the price will be increasing. Please keep in mind, you are not paying more for the 6oz, but you are paying for the 8.5-9oz size. The size will be noted in my listings and website, but will be sometime before I can get all the labels updated.

The whipped soaps will remain the same, although they are a bit denser as well, the size still varies between the 5.5oz and 6oz, so a price increase will not be happening.

Another product that I *may* have to discontinue due to the fiasco that happened awhile back with my formulas, is Snow White. Apparently this was not entered into my books sadly. But I have a really good idea on that formula so I *might* be able to recreate it. In the meantime, I have a few items left in stock in this scent. I will bring it back once I have figured out that blend. I'm working really hard on this one as it has become quite a popular scent.

Christmas and Fall scents are quickly running out and those that are left will be taken down by the 30th. I won't be bringing any of them back until next Fall. Don't forget Twilight is being discontinued, so be sure to stock up.

I want to also thank you all for your continued patience and your continued business. I love the personal notes I receive from many of you and your support. I know sometimes my TAT can be a bit long, and convos/emails can take a day or 2 to be returned, but I have to say you are all a bunch of the most wonderful people I have have ever come into contact with.

Also, I didn't realize yesterday as a no mail day, I have been so busy I lost track of usps's holiday calendar. But I did work all day so many orders are going out today.

I hope everyone had a fabulous long weekend and I hope the week ahead proves to be even better for you!
