Something Good and Something Bad.

Hey everybody, so sorry about the lack of updates. I just started school this week and it’s been a whirlwind of lectures, new classmates, readings and adjusting to the fact that summer is almost over! 😦 I have just been catching up with the bath&body and mineral makeup world, well, all I can say is there’s some really fantastic news and there’s some really terrible news to share. Let’s start with the good, shall we?

From Cleanse Your Soul,

Hi!  I don’t know about you, but I’m getting in the mood for Fall!  I looked through my tart bin at home (yes, I have one too!!) and I didn’t find many autumnal scented tarts.  Wonder if it’s like that at your house too?  So, I thought I would have a tart sale.  I NEVER have tart sales!!  So, now through the end of the month, pick any ten tarts for $8 (or $13.50 for the 2 oz cups)!  Go through the link for the tart ten packs so you get the right price.  You can choose the scents you want…10 different or all the same.
Also, there is a flat rate shipping price of $5 in place through the end of the month.

Enjoy!

This is an awesome sale because from what I know, CYS has never had a tarts sale until now! And when the deal is sweetened with $5 shipping, I don’t know how you are going to stand strong because I am definitely going to cave to this. What? No buy? Dumdumdumdeedum, I can’t heaarrr youuu. I am planning to combine orders with a friend who has recently been lured into the bath&body world! Heh heh!

 

From Bissy’s Boutique,

Well, it’s not really ‘from them’ but I wanted to give international bath&body addicts the heads up that Bissy’s is finally shipping internationally! I don’t know about you but I’m all ready to get myself her grab bags! Her holiday grab bags are really famous! I have been lusting them ever since Inan raved about them. BB’s grab bags are now available all year round, you can choose both the scent family (Foody, Fruity, Surprise Me, Perfume Dupes) and the types of products you want to receive (Tarts, Bath&Body, Mix It Up). And yes, BB now offers tarts as well! BB is definitely going to be my next big etailer order!

 

From Meow Cosmetics,

And now for some really bad news. I mean baaaddd.

From Bathed & Infused,

Important Announcement
Today I’ll be sending out a newsletter with the below information. In a nutshell, we are selling Bathed & Infused so that we can focus on building up Bath Nation. B&I has been a wonderful experience over the last 4-1/2 years and of course, the most wonderful of all is all the awesome friends we’ve made on this forum. 

What does this mean for our customers? 
We are going to continue making and shipping orders as usual until the time comes for us to transition all the equipment and supplies to the new owner. Then, there will probably be a period of time before B&I opens back up for business. I’m not sure how long that will be. It will probably depend on how close whoever buys B&I lives to us. 

During this time, the only thing that is going to be different is that we are opening up ALL of the Limited Edition scents for purchase. You can order anything you like as of now. However, we might not be replacing some of the fragrances and oils as we run out of them. When they go out of stock, they go out of stock until the new owners get more oil.

What does this mean for a potential buyer?
I’ve always wondered if some of you might be interested in owning B&I, so without going into detail I can say this: B&I can effectively be run by one person in a garage or basement, or maybe even 2-3 spare rooms. Done this way, our last year’s sales minus the shipping and cost of goods will yield a profit equal to the salary I used to make as an engineer! Before we bought Bath Nation (and thus taking time away from B&I), our sales were significantly higher. AND there are areas of growth potential like home fragrance, hair care, in-home parties, bubble bath, etc. There is definitely room to grow. 

Why are we selling B&I?
Well, it certainly isn’t for a lack of awesome customers! You are all testament to that fact! The main reason we are selling B&I is because it is really hard for us to focus and grow B&I and Bath Nation at the same time. Both companies are great and have awesome potential, but to realize that potential requires the attention to detail that they deserve. We’d rather see B&I go to someone with lots of energy to take it places we only dreamed of rather than let it fizzle away while we shifted more and more of our attention to Bath Nation. 

So, there you have it. Nicole and I want to thank all of you, our customers for your support over the last 4-1/2 years. Without you, B&I would not have been built up from the poor, ragged little thing it was when we bought “The Underground Scent Plant” in February of 2005 to the Bathed & Infused it is today. You are all truly wonderful 

Curtis & Nicole

 

Effective immediately, Bathed & Infused is for sale. This could be a great opportunity for someone looking to start their own business with great growth potential even in these difficult economic times. Serious inquiries only, please.

Please contact Curtis (Bathboy) for more information.

I told you it was bad. I hope the new owners of B&I will be as awesome as Curtis and Nicole has been. I really would like to continue buying from them and trying out the scents that I have never had the chance to try. Although I am gutted that Curtis and Nicole are selling up, I wish them all the best in their new endeavours and that Bath Nation will be a bigger success than it already is!

    what? omg are you kidding me???

    augh! Just when you had me all geared up to make my first order-argh!

    *sigh* ah well, I guess I better not even order b/c I know that I’d love it & then couldn’t repurchase.

    Thank you so much for posting this though-I think I will order some cys-I haven’t had any of judy’s products for a while & I see that her scent list has really grown!

    Have you gotten around to trying the lime scent yet (was that what it was? oops! can’t remember)….

      I know, I feel so bad for that! 😦 hopefully they will find new owners and they will keep B&I going as it is! I tried the Key Lime Cheesecake a few nights ago. The lime is amazing but I can’t smell any cheesecake whatsoever. So that was a bit of a disappointment 😦

      Yes, order from CYS! They are awesome! Get the 3-in-1s, Goat’s Milk and Honey cream and if you want to try scents, the sample soap is a good value for money!

    Yes key lime cheesecake! How could I forget that? one of my fave guilty pleasures.
    Hmmm…well if you can sniff the cheesecake, where’s the point in that? roflol!

    You know I’ve been buying from judy for over 5 years or so & the only thing I always get from her is the behemoth scrub which is AMAZING! But I think she calls it something else now?
    I’ve heard her soaps are good, I’ll have to investigate!

      I KNOW! that’s why although I like the lime, I was so disappointed that there was no cheesecake. Maybe it’s because it’s a shower gel rather than a body lotion or perfume.

      I have never tried her scrubs actually. I probably will in a future order! 🙂 Tell me when you order, I can’t wait to hear what you are getting!

    Well, I’ve yet to place my order. It prob gonna be the scrub, but I do want to take advantage of the tart special, but I can’t make my mind up about the scents. =/ Any thoughts?
