When I first started making lip balm, I only made it in jars. Most of our balms are still made in this shape (call me crazy, but I think they look cuter as favors), but after many requests we started offering the tube shape, too. Like these flavors for fall:
Over the last year we’ve been dropping some of our less popular lip balm flavors, instead stocking larger quantities of our bestsellers. This allows us to respond quickly to rush orders while maintaining our goal of a 2 to 3 day turnaround for all orders. While the tubes have a small and dedicated following—and they’ve grown particularly popular for kids’ party favors—I’ve had some difficulty with overstocking, so I’ve decided to make some changes to the way we do our tube balms.
First of all, don’t panic! We are definitely still offering lip balms in the stick/tube form. This is how we’ll be handling the tube balms from now on:
- Several flavors will always be in stock (such as birthday cake and peppermint) and available to order with no minimums.
- We will offer an assortment of flavors for a month or two at a time seasonally (such as the fall and Halloween flavors shown above) which can also be purchased in any quantity.
- We’re trying out a Flavor of the Month to offer additional flavors for a limited time, also available to purchase one or two at a time. (Caramel Apple is our flavor for October; if you’d like to help choose November’s flavor, you can vote on our Facebook page or cast your vote in the comments. The choices are Apple Cranberry, Pumpkin Latte, Ginger Pear, or Maple Nut.)
- All of our other flavors will be available in tubes by special order or by ordering favors, with a minimum quantity of 10.
We hope that this will offer enough options to the “tube fans” and allow us to keep up with the most popular flavors! Our currently stocked flavors are all available here. Please let me know if you have any questions about our tube lip balms!
