Oh My Happy Face!!

I've been working on some amazing things over here, and let me tell you my skin is very happy about it! I have the joy of testing out all my new formulas and slathering them on my family members to see how wonderful they are. Man do I love my job!! I completed the core skin care products in my Happy Face line, now totally paraben free and better than ever! Most of the items are listed here at my new Hyena Cart shop.

I've already completed the Deep Cleanser, Astringent, and Lotion for normal, combination, oily and acne prone skin as well as the Gentle Cleanser, Toner and Cream for normal, dry, sensitive and mature skin types. These are the core of the skin care set, for use twice a day. The Toner and Gentle Cleanser are not listed yet because I still need to take their photos ;)

I also have luxurious eye cream and serum listed and ready to go! Both of these products will benefit people with any skin type. These are so pampering!! I feel like I've had a spa facial, but I didn't have to shell out the big bucks to get the results, and neither do you! These are available for great prices, and really you will love the results. People are noticing and commenting on how my skin, as well as my tester's skin, looks firmer, more even and younger!

I'm also working on some simply amazing masks!! Four to be exact, two gel masks and two clay masks. I'm not quite done with these, but I've almost got them just right. More about these later ;)

As I mentioned, I now have a shop on Hyena Cart! Since I came back to Etsy things have been very slow, so I wanted a site that I had more control over. Hyena offers me that! I'm working on putting up all my items over there and giving the page my own look. It's not finished yet, but it will be soon! If you haven't checked out Hyena Cart you should stop by, they have some lovely products available over there :)

In My Spare Time...

Hahaha!!! Yup, even as crazy busy I have been with three kids and homeschooling, I sometimes have a spare moment. This week, in my spare time, I managed to reformulate my No Offense Deodorant, came up with names for all the new products I have been working on, re-organized my work space, went through old paperwork and even designed a few new labels! Phew!

I have some No Offense Deodorant up in my shop... 5 available in Oakmoss Sandalwood :) Enjoy!

Back in Action!

Yesterday I reopened my Etsy shop, and it feels SO good to be back in action! Yes, my kids and new baby keep me extremely busy, but my little side business provides me with some "me" time to express my creativity.

Upon returning I had to reorder some supplies, and sadly discovered that many of the ingredients in my No Offense Deodorant were much more expensive then when I closed. I am currently reformulating and trying to get the price more reasonable, because if I kept making the old formula I would have to more than double my old price. Ouch!! Don't worry though, I will make sure it works as good or better than the old one and I will try to keep the price as low as I can. :)

I also have been dreaming up a new skin care line and will introduce it soon!! I am so excited to have a full skin care line for my customers! This was something I didn't really have time to work on while I was open before, so I used some of my down time to work on it. I will have a set for normal/oily/troubled skin and a set for normal/dry/mature skin as well as a few things for any skin type. Sounds complicated, but really I will be streamlining and keeping things simple for you, and for me!

Other new things in the shop are that I am no longer doing custom orders, what you see is what you get! In order to keep up with my 3 children I will only be making products on Saturdays and listing only what I have available. This will allow me to ship faster than ever though, so you will get your goodies ASAP! I will most likely be able to ship on the next business day from when I receive an order :D I will also only be making small batches of everything so that you are insured fresh products.

I am going to eliminate many of my Mineral Eye and 3-in-1 colors also, but will keep the best ones. Let me know if there is a color you gotta have and I will try to include it in the line! I'll also be revamping my Lip Tints, but am offering my all original colors for now. Get them while you can!

You may be wondering what the baby picture has to do with any of this...nothing actually ;) I just think she's adorable and had to share!

Blessings and I look forward to serving you again! ~Lucy
