Eye Eye Captain

Gone FoxSea-ing

I’ve been a busy maker over here these last few weeks…

I started playing around with some looks for an event promo, and really enjoyed the freshness of the crisp and bold color. Perhaps I’ll take it further and do a bit of a makeover one of these days.

With a larger than normal slate of orders and upcoming events, I needed to produce bigger batches of product. My husband is such a gem, and he helped me tackle the labeling - which is not fun.

I’ve been lacking a little in the swag department, so I whipped up some new pins (#SaltyLady) and made some business card samples, so I could share Universal Oil with potential new fans. Fingers crossed…

My Herbal Lip Balm is back, because it’s that chapped lip time of year everyone loves so much. It always surprises me how much people ask for this product, which I initially started offering as a promotional item.

I was asked to create something for a local company’s holiday client appreciation gifts, so I bottled Universal Oil in a small rollerball for the first time then decided to add it to my regular stock offerings! #FoxSeaOnTheGo

I love a good bath, as does my smallest human. I really dig the ritual of a nice bath, so I teamed up with a local candle maker to help me create the first ever FoxSea bath candle. This first batch isn’t exactly what I want (not a reflection of my candle partner, but my own issues) but it’s got tons of potential! Stay tuned…

This summer I decelerated, both with FoxSea ish + my freelance writing, which is the great part about being freelance. However, it took me a bit to get back up to speed and I’m not sure I can sustain another deceleration. This busy last quarter of 2018 has reenergized me and I’m excited to keep up the pace!

Whew!

Get FoxSea & Get Glowing!

I'm a pretty terrible salesperson but I do wholeheartedly believe in the products I make. Behold a sales pitch below, with product recs from other skincare lines, because including them makes me feel better about tooting my own horn so blatantly. 

Transitional weather is here, which means it's time to make some tweaks to your skincare regime. Keep that summer glow going with the right mix of healthy beauty oils.

* As the temps start to dip (they'll dip eventually, right?), switch from gel or foaming cleansers to a cream or oil variety. FoxSea Universal Oil can be used as a cleansing oil, or try Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Oil, which gently removes the dirt and makeup of the day without stripping skin bare.

* The eye area is among the most delicate, and wacky weather can parch the area quickly. An oil serum can do a deep dive to help combat the fine lines and wrinkles that can age a face in a snap. Eye Eye, Captain is my personal fave, but Little Barn Apothecary makes an excellent version, available here.

* A nighttime facial oil is a must for waking up with glowing skin, and is the perfect last layer in an evening regime, because it helps to seal in what was applied before. FoxSea Eternal Oil is an ultra nourishing option, thanks to a super group, if you will, of natural oils known for soothing and moisturizing. 

Okay, that wasn't so bad, I guess...

 

GO BUY SOME FOXSEA!

FoxSea: Eye Eye, Captain

beauty, funNavigate with StyleComment

I'm so excited to announce FoxSea Skin's latest launch: Eye Eye, Captain! Formulated with a blend of healthy, natural oils, this serum helps keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay. While it's suitable for morning and evening, play around with how much you apply, and how long you let it sink it, prior to applying makeup. I spend many of my days makeup free, and drenched in FoxSea oils, so I have zero issues applying it in the morning. I also dab a little into my brows and on the tips of my lashes, since the castor oil in the formula can encourage hair growth (I over waxed my brows in the 90's). As always, when dealing with the eye area, be gentle, don't tug and take care not to get the product in your eyes. #safetyfirst

I haven't launched a new product in a while so I wanted Eye Eye, Captain to get a little fanfare before hitting the shelves. I threw a teeny private party to help fete the slim vial of skincare gold, and it was so lovely to get the product into the hands of other creative women I admire. Owning a small business that focuses on small batch, handmade goods is no joke, and support from the maker community (both local and at large) means so much to me. 

Take a peek through the evening and then order what's sure to be your next beauty crush (fingers and toes crossed) online from The FIND

Thank you to everyone who helped me celebrate Eye Eye, Captain.

You float my boat!
