Newsletter, The Scrub Me Down Kitchen

Newsletter: May 2017

May is officially here, and that means its Spring time in all of China! Wonderful coolish nights and nice warm days. Great for being outside and BBQ’s are opening up all over the place.

A few days ago we had a buy one get one half price on body butters and buy one body scrub and get a body body half price. Just so you know, that sale is still on as there are a couple of body butters and body scrubs left. This sale will continue until all the body butters are gone! We need to free up space for our new scents that just arrived from abroad; Passion Fruit, Green Tea, Tangerine and a few more!

The other day, a blog post was posted about a Cinqo de Mayo sale that is going to begin tomorrow (May 4) and only last one day. I think its a pretty sweet deal! You should definitely check it out. (its kind of hit and miss with and without the VPN). The sale is on the Margarita line. Check out the video!

We’ll be having a few more fun sales over the next few months to celebrate; Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Children’s Day, Barb’s birthday both day and month! And sprinkled through out there, some fun fast sales that might only last ten minutes!

Some new things:

The Scrub Me Down- Happy Skin blog is slowly coming together. The Instagram thingie is slowly growing as we figure out how to make it work. The blog is a place for us to talk about ingredients, new products, some epic fails (and when you’ve made as much as I have, there are quite a few!), resources for those of you who feel tempted to begin some DIY’ing too. We will also have some specials only available on the blog, Instagram or Facebook. So tune in and enjoy! We are trying to figure out iMovies so we can share some of the videos we’ve been making while making all the lovely products you like.

We are going to be playing around with the Bee Happy Face Toner and trying to develop a new more moisturising toner for those with oily or very dry skin. For oily skin, the hope is that it can replace a lotion/cream (or use a much lighter product) and for dry skin, it can pack a punch in the oomph department. We’ve formulated the recipe, now just need to make it a reality.

The much anticipated kick-in-the-seat-of-your-pants-as-yet-unnamed-product for hydration passed all our initial testing and our testers really enjoyed them too and liked the way this product made their skin feel like smooth and pleasantly plump! So this month we will have a new face product to give you some added moisture! And, if you massage it around the eyes? It can possibly help to reduce that puffy look because it packs a huge punch in the hydration department. It’s still unnamed at this point and we’ve just been referring to it by its ingredient name.

The Eye Serum. I’ve figured out how to thicken it up a little without altering the recipe too much, now just need to find a very specific type of pump bottle on Taobao or else it is back to the drawing board to try to figure it out again.

Soaps. Many of the beautiful soaps that you’ve seen over the past couple of months are ready to find new homes! We are also working hard to make some new fun soaps to make bath time so much more fun and enjoyable!

Foaming Handwash. Well this foaming hand wash we’ve got the base down, but we ain’t getting any foam! It is a lovely product, it doesn’t dry, but to use it, you have to actually wash your hands with some friction action to get your hands clean. Adult only handwash anyone? So it is back to the drawing board for the handwash to try to get some foaming action on because if there ain’t no foam, most people won’t beleive it actually works. We’ve had two successful test runs for some foaming action face wash, just need one more to go before we ask for testers and begin offering it. This is one thing that is doing my head in! We really wanted to have it ready for Mother’s Day, but it doesn’t seem likey. Perhaps by Father’s Day!

  1. Regarding the hand wash, I love using it because it isn’t anti-bacterial! So many times I just want to wash my hands without the extra ingredient, which we’re hearing isn’t very good for us. It does a great job without leaving my hands feel stripped, too.
