Shipping Increase

I just found out postage rates are going up on January 2nd. I thought the USPS proposal was denied, but I guess not. I did not change shipping charges after the increase last year, but I can no longer absorb the cost and will have to raise them now. I'll post the details as soon as I figure it out next week.

Fulfillment Update

Fulfillment time is running a little longer than estimated due to a high volume of large, complex orders. I sincerely apologize and promise to make it worth the wait! Thank you in advance for your patience.

And The Winners Are

The descriptions for the Fall/Halloween and Pumpkin Pandemonium collections have been moved to the Scent Menu Archive.

Green Goblin, Strawberry Rhubarb, and Vampire's Kiss are now part of the Succulent Fruits category. Vanilla Tobacco has joined the other Earthy/Spiced Delights.

Beguiling Blackberry & Spellbound seemed to be popular, but surprisingly were not mentioned much in the voting. They may be added later.

Tea Garden Photos

This weekend I went to the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco. It was a bit cold and foggy, but that's normal for this time of year in the city. It was still a gorgeous place to visit!

2 oz. Lotion Bottles

I will temporarily be using a slightly different shape 2 oz. lotion bottle due to a supply issue with the regular ones.

The photo below shows the difference. The temporary bottles are just a bit taller and slimmer (like I wish I was, LOL). I included the 1 oz. Moisture Mist/Silky Body Oil bottle in the picture for height reference.

In product news, the body cream has been slightly reformulated. It provides the same level of moisture and still sinks in quickly. The texture is just a little lighter now. There are more botanicals as well as nourishing oils including grapeseed and jojoba. This change is effective immediately.

Almost There

The Fall/Halloween collections are very, very close to being done. It's taking a bit longer than expected because many of the blends are requiring quite a bit of adjustment to balance the notes.

There are several this time that are more complex than they sound. Those fragrances develop or bloom as they dry, so all the notes may not be apparent straight out of the bottle or jar. If you get a scent that doesn't smell like you expect at first, please try it on and give it a chance. ;)

And Another Review!

Solid Lotion Bar Review

A Solid Lotion Bar in Snow is Ricki’s Pick of the Week on Handmade Guru! Here's her review:

A few months ago, Flutterby Beauty was offering a sample pack to Facebook fans. One of the items contained in the sample pack was a lip-balm sized stick of solid lotion. The one I received was scented in Snow which is a great crisp clean scent that is rather unisex — my husband even used it without complaining of it smelling “girly”. The lotion itself rubs on very smoothly without having to be warmed in your hand first. My mom loved mine so much (and the scent, too) that she asked me to order her one whenever I placed an order, so I went and got her one of the big Solid Lotion Bars.
