Featuring Luscious Lather

My friend Diane at Luscious Lather has amazing skin care products. She has a shop on ArtFire and on Etsy, both called Luscious Lather. These products are wonderful and so is their maker. Diane is a wonderful Christian woman who is a true friend. Everything in her shop is handmade with love and care, and is of the highest quality. Support handmade!

One best seller is the hair care line. She carries shampoo and conditioner, as well as leave in conditioner. Organic and vegan!

Luscious Lather has many products for facial beauty. This is a sampler you can buy to try out several products. Customers rave about all of the products featured here!

I love the soaps at Luscious Lather, they are beautiful and well made. They also smel
l amazing! The soap doesn't dry out my skin, but leaves it feeling soft and silky.

The whipped body silk with shea butter, aloe & silk looks so dreamy! I can't wait to try some. It looks almost good enough to eat, but I'm sure it doesn't taste as good as it looks ;)

There are many more items such as men's line, pet line, makeup, lotions and more. Check out both of her shops, you won't be disappointed!

Store Brand Formulas Recent Victory!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

A US Circuit Court upheld a $13.5 million claim against Enfamil maker Mead Johnson that was a claim about false advertising.  This was a major victory for Store brand infant formulas.  The store brand formulas stated that Enfamil's ads were misleading because store brand formulas have the same nutrients at the same levels of Enfamil. PBM Products is the maker of Perrigo's store brand of infant formula who made this claim against the makers of Enfamil.   I think this is amazing, that a store brand beat a major name brand manufacturer of baby formulas!  I agree that the ingredients are the same but the store brands just don't advertise the same, and therefore we spend less on the store brand formulas because they aren't spending a ton of money on ads every day.  

Circuit Judge Andre Davis wrote "As the litigation history of the parties demonstrates, despite having twice been restrained from disseminating misleading advertising, Mead Johnson continued to do so."  He went on to say that "PBM cannot fairly compete with Mead Johnson unless and until Mead Johnson stops infecting the marketplace with misleading advertising."  Good point!  

"The Court has made it clear that the national brand and store brand suppliers are entitled to fairly compete and advertising abuses will not be tolerated," Perrigo Chairman and CEO Joseph C. Papa said in a statement. "We also appreciate the Court's recognition that PBM could lawfully compare its products to national brand products."

It is summertime again! Yesterday was the last day of school for my kids. One is moving on to high school, one is moving on to middle school, and the other 3 are moving to new grades. It's going to be a long 2 1/2 months having 5 kids home every day all day. The oldest now has a job, so that will occupy him a lot of the time. We are hoping to take a couple short trips to the beach, and one long trip just the two of us in August. Right now I'm so swamped with orders, I'm beside myself with joy! Having the extra money is great for summer time! Have a great summer and keep your eyes on my shops on ArtFire and Etsy, and blog, to see what summer time goodies I'm making.
