More New Products!

In an effort to boost sales we are once again going to be pushing out new products. Starting sometime in the next month or two, about the same time as I will be launching Soap Parties, we will be carrying Body Wash and Lotion as well as sample sizes of our soaps. In addition to the Body Wash and Lotion you will now also be able to order gift baskets. These will be great options for the upcoming holidays!

Another new addition will be more face products including a detox mask and face soap. Right now we are setting aside the funding for these new ventures and are hoping to see them released in just a few short weeks.

Are there any items you wished we carried? Let us know in the comments below!

Back To School Contest Soon!

We are having a giveaway in a few days! I am still working out the details but there will be a giveaway coming up! It will be via Facebook so be sure to like our page!

The contest will be to honor the lovely time of year we parents all long for and dread at the same time… back to school season!

Back to school for us was today with Pretty One starting her sophomore year. Her first Volleyball practice with her new team is this afternoon. There is NO waiting when it comes to Volleyball season. Tryouts were last week and her first game is the 29th.

Back to school is a great time to stock up on bath and body products. They make excellent teachers gifts, holiday gifts, party favors, etc. Not to mention you want to keep the kiddos from being all germy and stinky. You do not know the meaning of stink till you get a whiff of an athlete’s bag. Toss an open bar of soap in their bag to help! We have a ton of stock ready and waiting to go out and wash stinky kids everywhere!

Back to school for college kids also is a good time to get them the soaps and body products they will need for the coming semester!

That’s it for today. Check back tomorrow for a product spotlight!

Product Spotlight: Pure Argan Oil

So what is Argan Oil anyway? I’m sure you’ve heard of it. Every beauty blog an magazine talks about this stuff and how awesome it is so I wanted to share more about it with you.

Pure Argan Oil from Bathe Happy

Pure Argan Oil from Bathe Happy

Argan oil is pressed from the nut of the fruit of the Argan Tree, which is only found in Morocco. The argan tree lives to be about 150 to 200 years old and does not start producing the fruit until it is 30 to 50 years old. Because the tree is found only in a limited area, the oil itself is quite rare. To make argan oil, Moroccan workers—mostly women—peel the outer layer of the tree fruit then pound its inner nut with a rock to extract kernels, from which the oil is extracted. These women for the most part belong to various women’s co-ops supported by various organizations worldwide representing women’s rights.

Argan Oil is truly an all-purpose beauty tool. Argan oil is most effective as a moisturizer, toner, and topical treatment for general hair, skin, and nail problems. Argan oil in its purest form is highly effective. Therefore, it does not need other ingredients in order to keep its effectiveness and freshness. Pure and preservative-free Argan oil is best to use for your daily skin and hair regimen.

Cosmetics expert Marla Malcolm Beck, the CEO and co-founder of Bluemercury.com says “Argan oil has incredible conditioning and anti-aging properties that keep hair and skin revitalized, It’s great for dry skin, does not clog pores, helps minimize fine lines, and can treat split ends. Argan oil can help people with mild acne as the oleic acid found in the oil helps promote healthy levels of sebum production, and its linoleic acid helps prevent excess dead skin cells by promoting healthy skin turnover.”

While all of this is common to hear about Argan Oil, clinical testing of it is slim to none so it’s best to take a lot of things with a grain of salt and try it out for yourself. Everyone has different skin and hair needs but Argan Oil seems to really work for everyone that tries it.

Here are some things I love about Argan Oil after using it for myself (I’ve been using it for over a year now):

For My Hair:

  • Better Curl Definition
  • Less Noticeable Split Ends (Keep in mind there is no miracle cure for split ends besides a haircut.)
  • Less Frizz
  • More Shine

For My Nails:

  • Less Splitting
  • Healthier Cuticles

For My Skin:

  • Super Hydrated Without Feeling Oily
  • Healthier Glow

For My Face:

  • Less Acne
  • Fewer Breakouts
  • ZERO Dryness or Flakiness (which I have always struggled with)
  • Healthier Glow
  • Clearer Pores

Pure Argan Oil typically retails from $20-$100 per oz. Big name brands that sell it jumped on the Argan Oil Bandwagon and added huge mark ups. You won’t find that at Bathe Happy. Our Pure Argan Oil is $15 for 1 oz. and 27.50 for 2 oz. To compare you can check out Josie Maran who sells the same stuff at Sephora for $14 for just .5 oz., $48 for 1.7 oz., and $96 for 4 oz.

Back From Our Break!

Hello Happy Bathers! Angie, Joey, and Rush have returned home so I am now back on a normal working schedule. Their trip up was a lot of fun but also very tiring. Everyone is just exhausted but it was great to see them. I apologize for my absence it was much harder than I realized to try and work and play hostess.

Unfortunately dress shopping was not the fun I was hoping for. It was actually pretty discouraging. I thought shopping for your wedding dress was supposed to be exciting and fun but yeah not so much on that one. I got really excited about one Jasmine dress, I was sure it would be THE DRESS and then found out 3 days later that the changes we’d want made to the dress (like adding sleeves and getting some additional lace to fill in a few open areas that hit me in the wrong spot) would push the dress way out of our price range.

So I’ve been hosting a massive pity party about it because now I’ve pretty much lost almost all hope of finding a dress. That’s actually why there was no post yesterday; I spent half the morning in the fetal position crying. Yes there is still the dress maker I was working with but I am very leery of buying something I can’t even see let alone try on and in photos her work can’t compare to the Jasmine dress. There was one other Jasmine dress I was in love with but it was too expensive from the get-go so there was no attempt to try it on, the sample would have been too small anyway. Now it looks like the dress that was originally to expensive would be cheaper in the end than the less expensive ‘dream dress’. It’s all very frustrating and very confusing.

There is good news though. While they were here many products were made. There are Waterlily Citrus Loofa Soaps, Ginger Lime Loofa Soaps, Turkish Mocha Soaps, Rosemary Citrus Soaps, Rosemary Lavender Soaps, Argan Oil, and Coffee Scrubs. All are awaiting photography when the sun finally comes out and then they will get listed in the store. All the soaps are beautiful and the fragrances are amazing.

I hope I can share the new products with you soon. My goal is to get them listed before the big sale starts next week!

Have a great day all!
