Re: lotion cups

We only use cups when we are using one of the 16/32 oz bottles for a lotion promo and we do not charge. We sell packettes. I just don't like the look of cups sitting on the counter:)

Re: lotion cups

We use cups for most everything except Tanology. Charge $2.50-$6.00. Fill most of the way up. Use the pumps we get with lotion orders. We used to keep them stocked under our shelves. Now we just keep a few filled at a time to help save space. As we sell them we just make a few more.

Re: lotion cups

Yes, the packettes are difficult to tear and get the lotion out. The cups can be closed, but most people use them in one session. Only the facial products sometimes last several sessions.

The switch to cups gave us much more turnover than the packettes, mainly because of the pricing. People don't think much about spending € 2, but € 5-6 is something else.


Cups may not look as good as packettes (I agree completely), but if it sells better I'm all for it, LOL

Re: lotion cups

Since the new Worship Me doesn't come in packets, what do you all charge for a cup of it?

Re: lotion cups

I ,like someone on here, give a cup to try from the 32 oz DS bottles I get free. Most will buy the lotion when they come out from tanning. I sell more bottles this way.

Re: lotion cups

Selling lotion by the ketchup cup = ghetto deluxe.

Same salons that sell lotions by the cup do skin typing like this: "Hey lady, what's you's skin type? Albino, Spic or Indian?"

Re: lotion cups

^ You like generalizations, right?

We don't have the Worship Me yet. Ray of Light we sell for € 2.

Unfortunately we never get 32 oz for free, so we don't give away cups easily.
