No More Drippy Scrubs


Velvet in Sweet Vanilla Mango.


I really like how the new scrubs are like thick smoothies or granitas.  We are considering offering in the Sugarfoot container (8 oz. of scrub).  



Can I get your opinion?  Would you rather drop about $20 or $30 on a scrub, not really caring about the size?

Please discuss....

Those scrubs look incredibly yummy!!!!! Can I eat them?

Ooh, that Butter Scrub looks so good! I'm usually okay with around $28 or so for a scrub, so between $20 and $30 is fine with me.

Discussion: If I had my choice~I would opt for a container that I could re-use again & again. Now the Sugarfoot container can be used for notion holding, etc... and the Butter Scrub glass container (is it glass?) is well~ too darn cute. This glass container would look great in any room there is running water.

Care about the size? Yep, but I do (okay am guilty) of buying products for looks of the packaging etc... I don't think 30.00 is too much for a scrub that is 8 oz. or more...If something is priced too low, people wonder~ hum...is the quality good, etc...

For months, in my own biz, I have been thinking~ what package can I do without, what can be reused, what this, what that???

The jar is PET plastic. Yes! No breakage.

If the product is awesome, price is usually not really something that would hold me back, and I love to be able to recycle or repurpose a container after it's been emptied. It does look like it should be something edible since it's scented so fabulously!

It really depends on where I'm buying the scrubs - and the perceived value.

So, if I were buying your scrub at K-Mart, paying $20 would seem high.

But, I if I was buying your scrub at Nordstroms, $30 would seem normal.

So, to make the decision on what you want to price at and package in, I'd consider your general customer. Are they high end spas? If so, high price and high packaging. If they're little mom'n'pop stores that are struggling to already sell your products, the $20 seems like a better price point.

As for size, I don't know many people that actually finish a full scrub before going onto another one (or are me and my friends odd?). Most people don't do the price per ounce calculation when buying a luxury product, in my experience.

Just my overpriced two cents on all of that.... =)

I'd spend either...it depends on my mood. I'd order a smaller one if I wanted to get more than one and have different scents to choose from. I'd probably spend more for a larger size if I didn't want to run out, or was getting a gift.

Joanna Schmidt said...

I was just thinking that people would pull the trigger more with a smaller scrub. See, $20 feels reasonable if you are feeling wishy washy about it. But $32? I think I would pass if I didn't know the quality. So that's me. Maybe I am in the minority in this group. Or I'm a cheapskate! (hehe)

Back again~ I feel the same way, I have passed on some companies because I felt they were "too rich" for my blood. Now, if they had a special offer~ that's the time I would try something I had my eye on.

I do about 90 percent of my shopping online...so I'm always looking for something new, on the edge, etc...to try. Also, when I can it's always something handemade, and in support of those who create.

"$20 feels reasonable if you are feeling wishy washy about it. But $32? I think I would pass if I didn't know the quality." I agree with that line of thinking, which is why I like that you offer some trial sizes for your products. You could offer both the sizes to suit whatever needs people have.

Joanna Schmidt said...

Thanks guys for all your feedback. I may have to offer two sizes until we see which one sells the best. Hmmm. It's a tuffy.

Kelli said...

For me it's not so much about price, but about the size of the jar. I like a bit smaller jar, because I like have multiple fragrances, choices. I have found that the bigger the jar, the slower I seem to use it. Rather if I have a smaller jar, I user it faster in anticipation of getting the next thing. I hope that makes sense! Or I might just be weird! lol

I don't think that is unreasonable, especially for an emulsified scrub. I have seen oil and sugar for the same price and it isn't as good in the shower. A smaller size is good and can be done as an outright purchase or gift with purchase or half price on the small one with purchases over x amt. Heaps of possibilities.
