New Look, New Formula for Lotions

While I liked my first couple of batches of lubes, they weren't quite to my satisfaction, so I went back to the lab for a little tweaking. I'm much happier with the final results. They're thicker and creamier in consistency, and I've added avocado oil in place of apricot kernel oil. I thought these would turn out greasier with the shea and aloe butters, but they didn't! My skin as well as my testers' soaked it right up with no greasy after-feel. Whew! I've also added new scents including unscented, coconut lime (my newest fave), mango sorbet, and nectarine & honey (a close second).

 New Labels

Old Labels

I've also lightened up the packaging to be more reflective of my graphics. I splurged on these fabulous clear, gloss labels from Online Labels. They're the most affordable that I've found so far, but if you've got a good label supplier, please share! I'm slowly changing labels on all my products-but not before I use the old ones! Label-making is expensive, ya know?!

I love the new labels - I agree, lighter is better for showing off the goodies inside. I buy my labels from Just like it says, you can get one or get more. The more you buy, the more you save. I suggest getting one of each that you like to test with your printer before going all out.
