I hope all is well! I have been very busy spending time with and just loving up my new, beautiful grandson and so I am blaming him for my tardiness in getting this newsletter out! This will also be a brief newsletter (priorities you know) but I promise to get back on track for April. This has been such a joyous time in my life and I am savoring every minute of it.
We have some changes at Rituals that I wanted to share with you. Casey has decided to go back to school and we are so happy for her (yay Casey). Casey has been a pleasure for us at Rituals and we are very excited to see Casey continue to explore her passion in this world and take steps toward her long-term career. We wish her all the best and know she will be missed by all of you. Fortunately, I have already found a great replacement to take over as our Spa Concierge. Welcome to Amy Hobbs, who has been a long-time friend of mine. I am really excited to have Amy join us, as she is a natural fit. Amy has a wonderful husband, three grown children and Amy has a passion for art. She is quite a talent! I know you will make her feel comfortable as she learns the ins and outs of Rituals.
Another change happening at Rituals will be a minimal price increase starting April 1. It has been a few years since our prices have been raised, even though the cost of doing business in Burlingame has increased and in order to keep the level of quality that we are so proud of, it is necessary.
Recently I have been promoting our new Eye and Lip Serum from Le Mieux and this is a product that I have been very excited about. Unfortunately, we have had a few returns of this product. Concerns are primarily that the product didn’t “feel right” and so I would like to give some advice. This Eye and Lip Serum has a very different texture and one that takes getting used to. Any time we try something new there may be a bit of a learning curve, both in the application and feel. I have asked you to trust me in the past and am going to ask you to give this product a thorough try because, quite simply, the technology is superior and will create great results. This product actually traps free radicals that damage our healthy cells!
I also believe that some of you may not have been given the proper technique for applying this intense Eye and Lip Serum, so for those of you who are not sure about this product, here are a few tips. To use this special serum, place a very tiny amount on your finger tip and emulsify between two fingers. When you start to see the color yellow appear, begin application. My new tip is to start with the lip area. Apply all over the lip and beyond the lip line. With the remaining product on your fingertips, apply to the eye area. I know I have definitely seen a difference in my own lip lines and feel my eye area is much more protected. I also love that this serum is light reflective, which means the light bounces off your lines! Any of you who are over 40 should definitely be using this amazing Eye and Lip serum.
As you know, we will take back any product that you are not happy with within 30 days, so please do not let that be a concern.
Many Thanks and Love to All of You!
