Today I went to visit some friends and their new baby, Jasper.. an added side bonus was that I finally got to see her new range of bath and body products and as someone who has tried her hand at MANY online ventures I was seriously impressed. I know you’ve all had a friend (or a friend of a friend) who has tried to start a business of some kind and given up through boredom and slow success. I am the worst for it, I’ve tried making jewellery, lip balm, cupcakes.. I had zero commitment to any of them so when someone tells me they’re starting a soap business I’m dubious but what I saw today was totally unexpected. I had seen pictures online and the products looked good but they smell amazing, are beautifully presented and Leanne really know what she’s doing. She was talking about the various ingredients that go in to her products and why X works for this reason and Y works for another – I had no idea what kind of research (not to mention the legalities with regard to recipes etc) that went a venture of this kind. I can’t wait to see what else she creates but I am pushing for lip scrubs and balms.. she also hinted at solid perfumes!!
She generously sent me away with a bag of goodies to try for myself so you can expect a review of those soon but I thought I would share her current deal code for those interested as she’s offering 20% off throughout August on all of her stock. From what I sampled I’m most excited about the body scrubs (the Grapefruit one I have is 100% natural) and the bath melts but if you take a look at the site I’d love to know what takes your eye.
