For those of you that subscribe to my newsletter know that I just put the brown sugar and oatmeal scrub on sale. Heck, I'm going to put ALL the scrubs on sale.

Sale prices are good until next Tuesday (8/25/2009). You also can't use the 30% "scent of the week" sale AND the scrub sale price, sorry.

Go and try some of the new fall scents! They are nom, nom, nom. Butterscotch candies and vermont maple syrup really, really surprised me!! I thought they wouldn't be my thing but I'm digging them *drools*

Brown Sugar & Oatmeal Scrub Going Up

I don't know if anyone will get a kick out of this but I'm getting a good chuckle so I thought I would post it.

So I made this great brown sugar and oatmeal scrub but I was vacillating back and forth about the oats. A wonderful woman by the name of Diane, who sells Skin Candy and has a party tomorrow, e-mailed me asking when it was going to be put up. Here is part of my reply:

"The only issue I'm having with the brown sugar scub is if the
oatmeal. Should it be ground up a little bit?? What do you think? I'm
such a libra-one minute I'm loving it, the next, not so much. It's the
oats. The damn oats are holding it up lol. What do you think of the oats?

That being said, the price would be $10 AND I'm going to go and lower the
price of the moisturizing scrub to $10.95 right now.

Diane what do YOU think of the damn oats??? lol "

See my issue with the oats is that they were whole and would just lay in the bottom of the shower, like little dead fish instead of going down the drain. One shower it bothered me, the next shower it didn't. Back and forth I went (it really is no party being a libra sometimes. YES, I'm blaming it on that!).

Diane, being such a great gal, replied:

Well...since we are on the subject of the damn oats...lol
I like the whole oatmeal sprinkled on top...but I think it should be ground
up a little more inside the scrub.
I love the consistency of the scrub and the smell is yummy (the sweet
pumpkin really compliments the brown sugar).
I think it is a winner....just grind up the damn oats a little more!
That's what I think...lol "

So there you have it. The the way I made the decision about the oats. Sometimes it's not all about working and re-working a recipe. Sometimes it's just another opinion to push you in the direction you were headed anyway. I'm going to the website now to add the scrub.

Lowered the price of the moisturizing scrub

Well finally there is a price decrease from one of my suppliers. Because they had a price decrease on some of the ingredients of the moisturizing sugar scrub, I can pass on the savings to you :)

New Scrub Lids

The new scrub lids are in! These will go on all of our scrubs; foaming whipped sugar scrub, moisturizing sugar scrub, and the "coming soon" brown sugar and oatmeal scrub.

No more chasing that loose lid around the shower, these are handy dandy flip top lids that are attached :)

My Crazy Life

Hey everyone, I just wanted to give a quick update on my crazy life.

If you guys put in an order in the evening and I don't e-mail you right away saying I received it, don't panic. I am now sleeping overnights at the dog daycare Monday-Thursday (Mon & Tue I work from 4pm until 7am the next morning, Wed & Thurs it's 7pm-7am).

I check all the orders and e-mails in the morning when I get home so just be patient with me :)

There is also a new product coming, there are pictures of it up on the "lets go shopping" page. It's a brown sugar and oatmeal scrub...yummmmmmy.
