Guess My Age - Product of the Month

Guess My Age - Product of the Month

We have started a new Product of the Month program!  We choose one of our favorites, discount the price a little, and promote it all month long.  For May, and our premiere, we have chosen Guess My Age Moisturizing Face Oil.   Our Face Oils were not part of our initial product line - We carried the Simple Maintenance Daily Face Wash and Tone it Up face toner, but did not have a moisturizer to complete the line.  I was hesitant to add products as we were still pretty new as a company and even today it is still difficult for...
