Our Smidgen of Us Contributions - August 2023 🎃

Banner - Smidgen of Us August 2023

We cannot deny our favored time of the year is among us! 👻

We have decided once more to come back to collaboration boxes (and to one of our favorites, too), the Smidgen of Us box!

For those who aren't very fluent in what a collaborative box or specifically Smidgen of Us is, allow me to elaborate...

What exactly is the Smidgen of Us Box? Good question! Let’s get into that as well as what a collaborative indie box is, exactly. ℹ️

An indie brand is a term for an independently owned, small business like ours. A collaborative indie box is usually offered by pre-order and is a collaboration between a group of indie makers. Please note that Rules, themes, and sales dates, etc vary depending on the box. There are plenty of fun collaboration boxes out there and each are run and operated differently.

The Smidgen of Us Box is a themed box centered either around seasons or other themes often based off a poll that customers as well as makers get to participate in. This poll as well as the products that are to be sold are all in their Facebook Group.


 Now that we have the pleasantries out of the way, let me delve into why you are going to want to grab your hands on one of these bad ghouls.. (see what we did there?) 👻 


Growing up, my least favorite candy in my bucket at the end of a night of Trick or Treating were the candy corn and the tootsie rolls. In a crazy twist of events, they are now my favorite. 😂 Therefore in order to show homage to my newfound guilty pleasures, comes the scents I’ve chosen to go with for each of our two Smidgen of Us contributions. 😌🍬

The Sugar Stick - Tootsie Roll Scrub Balm 

The Tootsie Roll Sugar Stick

.5 oz balm tube / $7.77

Capped at 20

Our second contribution is a scrub balm scented in Tootsie Rolls. 🍫

🍬 This Cuticle scrub balm was inspired by and is scented in Tootsie Rolls. It has all the vitamins, anti-oxidants, etc your skin loves and needs with ingredients such as shea butter, jojoba, vitamin e, + more. It is made up of fine brown sugar, which is known to be less abrasive as regular sugar crystals, making this better for cuticles all around. The balm texture helps soothe the skin as well as nourish it. This will be sure to leave you feeling exfoliated, hydrated, and ready for your next mani!

Pinch a pea sized amount of crumbles & rub the scrub between your pointer finger & thumb. The heat from this friction changes the texture to more of a sugary paste. Proceed to rub onto all of your fingers or lips; a little goes a long way!

When done, using warm water, rinse off the scrub. Notice there will be a balm layer left behind. This is normal. Use a dry towel rag to dry your skin & get some of the excess off.

Leaving you with a light layer of hydrating protection. Let that soak into your skin for 5-10 minutes & feel how velvet smooth your skin feels once done!
Ingredients: Brown Sugar, Vitellaria Paradoxa (Shea) Butter, Euphorbia Antisyphilitica (Candelilla) Wax, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Helianthus Anuus (Sunflower) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, Alpha Tocopherol (Vitamin E), body safe fragrance.


 That wraps up each of the products we are offering during this month's Smidgen of Us pre-order. They will be sold separately and not as a duo during the shop sales dates of August 23rd through to the 30th ONLY. Therefore, grab them while possible once the shop goes live!

Wishlisting goes live on the 19th of August, so make sure to add it to your wishlist for easier shopping once the site goes live!
