I would like to offer my sincerest apologies for recent gaps in communication and slowdown in fulfillment. As some of you may know, I have been sick several times over the past few months. It has become clear that I need to take the time to fully recover. Effective immediately, Flutterby Beauty is closed. Re-opening will be determined based on the improvement of my health. I want to thank you for your business, support, and patience during this time.

All outstanding orders will be completed and mailed no later than Monday, December 19. Domestic packages within the U.S. should arrive in time for Christmas. If you would prefer to cancel your order for a full refund, please email me at orders [at] flutterbybeauty [dot] com by midnight Thursday, December 8th (Pacific Standard Time). Again, I am truly sorry to those who have been waiting longer than the estimated time.

I wish all of you a joyful holiday season!

Take Care,

Seasonal Collection Schedule

Happy Friday! It's finally time to retire the Spring Collection, so it will be archived at the end of the month.

A Few Notes

Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian customers! :D

A couple reminders:
- Monday is a holiday, so there is no mail service.
- There are only a couple days left to order Valentine's LEs! They will be retired late Sunday night/Monday morning.

For my fellow Californians, the temporary 1% sales tax increase has expired & the cart has been updated to reflect the new lower rate.

Valentine's LEs Retiring Sunday!

I think it's finally time to archive the Valentine's Day Limited Edition blends, so they will be available until midnight Pacific time Sunday.

Black Velvet, Vamp & Velvet will be moved to the regular scent menu in the Earthy category.

Tropical Truffle will join the Summer LEs.

If there are any other blends from this collection that you would like to stick around, please feel free to post here or on the Facebook page. I'm always open to suggestions! :)

About International Shipping

To my lovely international (non-U.S.) customers - if your order does not fit in a small flat rate box, I will email you before I start working on it so we can discuss the options & make adjustments.

If you prefer to work things out before you place an order, I am happy to do that as well. Just email me a list of the items you are planning to get & I can check if it fits.

Here is an example of how many items I can put in a small flat rate box:
Two 2 oz. body cream or 3 oz. scrub
Two 2 oz. lotion, shampoo, or conditioner
Six 1 oz. moisture mist or body oil

Just Me

A few people have asked, so I thought I'd post this in case anyone was wondering - the company is just me. I do everything: develop products & scents, maintain website, make, pack & ship orders, answer emails/customer service, marketing (social media & newsletter), and even the accounting & taxes. It's a one woman show! ;)

I did some number crunching & domestic shipping within the U.S. needed to be updated as well, so it has been changed to a flat rate of $7.95. If the actual cost is less, a refund will be issued when the package is mailed.

I apologize that there wasn't any notice! It was just easier to do all the website work at once. I hope you understand.

New Postal Rates

Hope everyone's having a nice weekend! I've updated the website to reflect the new postal service rates for domestic insurance & international shipping.

As I've mentioned before, there have been 2 increases & I can no longer absorb the cost. I understand it is expensive, so I am continuing to offer a discount, but it will $3 off now.

This applies to new orders. Any existing orders that have not been billed yet for shipping will receive the previous rates.

Thank you in advance for understanding.

Spring Scents, Hair Care & Website Updates!

Spring is here and so are the new seasonal scents!

Banana Pudding*
Blueberry Lemon Poundcake*
Coconut Cream Egg*
Delicate Sweet Pea
Fresh Carrot
Gilded Lily*
Grasshopper Pie*
Honey Crème*
Lavender Cloud*
Lavender Fluff*
Lemon Coconut Cupcake*
Ma Petite Chérie*

* Denotes Flutterby exclusive blends

The Valentine's Day collection and Solid Lotion Bars will be retired at the end of the month. This is your last chance to order before they're gone! The warmer weather means a higher risk of the lotion bars melting during transit. They will return in the Fall.

Two new hair care products are now available: Botanical Shampoo and Conditioner! Both are packed with herbal extracts, wheat protein, and pro-vitamin B. They also contain many organic ingredients and are vegan-friendly as well.

Sampler sizes are now being sold individually instead of sets of three, allowing you to mix and match as you please! There is still a 6 item limit per product type to help keep fulfillment time reasonable. The prices have been changed to more accurately reflect the time/cost associated with making each item.

Social media options have been added to the bottom left corner of all product pages. Subscribe, email, or share your favorites on a variety of different networks!

The Tea Parlour and Winter/Holiday collections will be retired soon. I'm leaving them up until February 15th so there are a couple weeks of overlap in case anyone wants to order from all 3.
