1 hr Personalized Skincare Product Consultation

Have you always wished that a skincare product could be just what you want and need? It can happen! I love to make customized products! Chose this option if you desire fresh and customized skin care products like anti-aging creams, cleansing gels, eye creams, soaps, lotions, and more! We will consult for 1 hour, and talk about the products you use every day, and find ways to consolidate them. From there, we will plan products for your skin, and I will then formulate and make them fresh and deliver them to you when they are finished. Things to keep in mind: You are not going to walk away from the consultation with any product (unless I have samples to hand out as I often do!) I will most likely need to order special ingredients, and it could take up to 3 weeks to get your customized products. Payment for all of the products you order is upfront, and is not included in the consult fee. Book a Monday evening slot (just book it now while you are here!), we will only need about an hour. Monday evening appointments are held at Needle Ink and Thread in Kettering, Ohio. If you cannot do a Monday evening.. We may need to meet somewhere local. I prefer Kettering/Dayton/Beavercreek areas. I can come to you if you live nearby or we can meet at a coffee shop or somewhere simple and quiet. This is a one-time consultation fee to get us started. Customer may be responsible for the upfront costs of some ingredients (some of them are incredibly expensive but worth it!)
