Out Of The Box Sampler

We have wanted to participate in the Out Of The Box Sampler for a while now. Due to family, work, business and just day-to-day activities the time just did not permit us to do so. Finally, once things died down after the Christmas rush, we set one of our marketing goals for 2010 to participate in the Out Of The Box Sampler.

We are officially one of the participants for the month of April. Our deadline to submit our samples is March 20th, but we have already sent our box off with over 60 samples for April’s sampler. That is over a month early…now talk about getting things done!

Since we make every effort to reuse, replenish, and refurbish as much as possible, we wanted to do something that was eco-friendly and presentable. We had bags printed that are made from 80% recycled paper that we filled with product samples of our Sugar Scrub, Soap, Body Oil, Herbal Salve and Lip Balm along with a card with a secret discount code and % off for all orders received from the sampler. Once all bags were filled we tied each one with natural colored raffia ribbon, which was a blast to do, yet time consuming. Due to the nature of the packaging we had to use a fairly nice size box to send the sample bags off. Since the box was rather large, we have decided to keep using the printed eco-friendly sampler bags; however instead of sealing the bags with a ribbon we will now seal it with a label that will have our logo printed on recycled labels. Sealing the bag this way will allow for better shipping options.

Facial Care

Today we will share tips on how to care for your skin and introduce our facial care line that will help you achieve your facial skincare goals.

Your skin is the largest organ of your body that can be damaged by what it is exposed to and is closely dependent on what you eat. Before deciding on what to do with your skin, you will need to find out what skin type you have, which may be sensitive, oily, normal, combination or has been damaged due to the sun and the heat. The basic facial care regimen should contain: cleaning, toning and moisturizing.

Karess-My-Face Product Line
Step 1: Cleanse

Cleaning the skin is one the easiest things you can do. You’ll need to find a cleanser that will give you good results without causing your skin to become irritated. Our Karess-My-Face facial bar gently cleans and exfoliates all at the same time. The addition of rosehip powder deeply removes dead skin cells, while leaving the complexion clean, refreshed and best of all healthy looking. For an even deeper radiant glow, the use of a complexion brush with boars bristles will stimulate lathering action from our facial bar, ensuring a deep, thorough cleansing.

Tip: If you wear makeup, you should carry out the routine of cleaning, toning and moisturizing each evening, as well as washing the face in the morning.

Step 2: Tone

Toners main power lies in their ability to wipe away any traces of dirt, make-up or cleanser that remain after cleansing. Of course, the majority of residue are removed during washing, but following up with a toner finishes the job. It balances skin pH, and tones your complexion while maximizing your skin’s capacity to absorb your favorite moisturizer. Our Lavender & Chamomile Facial Toner brings Organic Aloe Vera juice together with an array of extracts and glycerin to soothe and balance the skin. Cucumber extract moisturizes and restores radiance, while organic black willowbark extract aids in skin renewal.

Tip: Use morning and evening after cleansing to refresh, tone and deep-clean pores

Sept 3: Moisturize

Without moisture, the skin will not remain smooth and supple. The face is exposed to the drying effect of the weather, so moisturizers - which form a film over the skin - contain and augment the natural moisture. Our Karess-My-Face Orchid Facial Serum is an amazing cocktail of natural oils and emollients working in perfect harmony to add moisture to your skin and regenerate new cells, while improving skins elasticity, hydration and smoothness.

Tip: Apply to damp skin (face and neck) immediately after toning
