Happy Labor Day!

 

On this day, be sure to give thanks to all the hard working people who keep our world running.  Whether you're a barista or lawyer, educator or chef, construction worker, public servant, or volunteer - we appreciate you.  Hopefully you appreciate us too, because we love working hard to

help you feel beautiful!

Sweet September

         

School is now in session!  Time to teach your skin a lesson it will never forget.

 

Soothe those annual back-to-school nerves by trying some of our aromatherapy products.  Incorporate Lemon Ginger or Ripe Melon shower gel into your morning routine for the perfect pick-me-up.  Wind down from a long day of classes or workshops with relaxing aromas like Vanilla Cinnamon and Lemongrass & Lavender.

 

Lavender is well-known for its calming qualities, but the scent is also a popular remedy for detering insects.  For a powerful punch, apply some Lavender Body Butter before spritzing on our Bug-Away or Brazilian Rainforest Spray.

Get Organized!
As a mother of two who is always on the go, Master Artisan Erika Dupper has learned how to get ready for the day within minutes.  Here is her advice to you.
 
With the kids back to school, mornings are more rushed than ever!  Streamline your morning routine with these tips:

 

- Keep your space organized and neat.  A quick cleaning once per week will help avoid the mess that can build up over time, necessitating a major overhaul of your beauty area.  Make sure to keep your brushes clean too.

 

- Keep products in or near the are where they will be used (i.e. shower items in the shower)  If the item is used in more than one place, you may find it useful to acquire multiples to keep in all places of use, thus avoiding the nuisance of forgetting to bring the item back and forth.
    
-  Keep like items together.  Hair care products in one place, makeup in one place, etc.  This will help you avoid rushing around looking for the item you carried off days ago.
 
- Label your brushes and/or place them in the order you use them.  For me, the labels are important as I cannot see clearly until after my makeup is complete and I put my glasses on.  Keeping my brushes in order ensures the one I'm reaching for is the one I need.
 
- Remember, the best place to apply makeup is in natural light, like in a room near a window or in the kitchen.  In addition to lighting, the humidity and heat found in most bathrooms is not ideal for application or storage of your cosmetics.
New Items

Whether you're a makeup maven or prefer a natural look, you'll need the tools of the trade to get the job done.

 

In response to customer feedback, we will now offer the Foundation Brush and Eye Shadow Crease Brush individually.  Previously, these brushes were only included in the Eco-Friendly Brush Kit.

 

We are also switching out our purple polystyrene pencil sharpeners for a better model made of recycled materials.  The new sharpeners do not have a cover, which customers have told us is unnecessary.

Customer Feedback  

  

Congratulations to  Mary W. of Sussex, WI - winner of this month's Customer Feedback

Token of Appreciation.

 

 She won $10 by telling us this:

 

"I will spread the word about your products.  I agree they are superior,
and people are really getting tired of using things that are full of
terrible chemicals, etc."

Special Shade

 

Say so-long to Summer, Fall is coming!

Customers want to know:

 

How long will it take to get my order?

 

We suggest you plan on an internal processing time of two weeks from the date your order is
placed, plus shipping time.  If you need 3 day internal processing time, you must pay the RUSH fee.

 

It is possible that packages will be mailed
earlier, but typically there are large volumes of orders awaiting
fulfillment.  E-mails are sent with the delivery confirmation number when the package ships, so you will know when your order is on its way.

We work hard to get your products made and shipped as fast as we can.

Custom made handcrafted makeup does take more time, but the health and freshness gained is definitely worth it!
