2014 Price Changes - REVISED

REVISION:
I'm beyond thrilled to announce that the post below is being changed slightly due to an amazing supplier of mine securing better pricing and passing those savings on to me so that I can pass them along to you!  It really does pay to stick with companies that you trust and communicate with!  So - I'm dying to tell you that the prices announced earlier are changing!  Here's the NEW break down! Note the changes marked in RED:

INCREASES: (effective 2/1/14)
Cold Process Soaps $5.50
Dead Sea Black Mud Facial Bar $6.25 $5.75
Patchouli Mint Facial Bars $6.00 $5.75
Tea Tree Facial Bars $6.00 $5.75
Shaving Soap Bars $5.50
Velvet Face and Night Repair Facial Creams $13.00/2.4oz Jar $6.75/Sample Set

DECREASES: (effective 1/24/14)
Body Polish Sugar Scrubs $8.00/6oz Jars $10.00/12oz Jar
Mask Therapy Facial Masks $7.75/2oz Jar $9.00/Sample Set of 3
Skin Dessert Refreshing Body Mist 4oz Bottle $10.00
Vegan Deodorant Sticks $9.75 $8.50

^^^^^ Did you all see that????  That's right!!  Not only will Deodorant prices NOT be going up they are actually going DOWN!!!!  I've already changed all the pricing on Etsy and the Website (Note: Etsy prices are slightly higher due to selling fees - I'll be working on that next) The price increase will take effect on February 1st! :)

A few weeks ago I talked about how the prices would be changing in 2014.  As a business owner there is nothing I dread more than having to increase prices.  I try to keep them as low as possible but I refuse to buy cheap ingredients or use "fillers" in my products to cut costs.  I also use dependable and reputable suppliers for this reason.  I've tried using others suppliers and other ingredients hoping to reduce the product costs before but the end result was a poor quality product and I won't sell poor quality anything!  As a result, my suppliers have, over the course of the last 6-8 months, increased the cost of some supplies, ingredients and containers which meant sitting down with my really old adding machine and punching numbers!  The good news - some products are getting a price DECREASE which will take effect today! 

So, without further ado, here's what products are increasing and decreasing and what the prices will now be. 

INCREASES: (effective 2/1/14)
Cold Process Soaps $5.50
Dead Sea Black Mud Facial Bar $6.25
Patchouli Mint Facial Bars $6.00
Tea Tree Facial Bars $6.00
Shaving Soap Bars $5.50
Vegan Deodorant Sticks $9.75
Velvet Face and Night Repair Facial Creams $13.00/2.4oz Jar $6.75/Sample Set

DECREASES: (effective 1/20/14)
Body Polish Sugar Scrubs $8.00/6oz Jars $10.00/12oz Jar
Mask Therapy Facial Masks $7.75/2oz Jar $9.00/Sample Set of 3
Skin Dessert Refreshing Body Mist 4oz Bottle $10.00

I was so excited to reduce the Mask Therapy collection!!  I know you are too!!  :)

Product decreases will take effect before the end of the day and price increase will take effect February 1st.  Please contact me with any questions! 

Thank you all for your patience and understanding!!  Your business means everything to me and I appreciate everyone of you! :)

I would like to get my hands on some bath fizz's. I just love a bath that has all the makings of a spa. I need to be pampered once in a while.
