lotion cups

Do any of you sell lotion in a cup for single use? If so, what do you usually charge? I have been giving it out and realize that people are taking advantage of this several times.

Re: lotion cups

I only sell in cups, never in packettes anymore. We use the 15 ml cups (with about 10 ml in it) and charge $ 1 - $ 2,50.

Re: lotion cups

We sell a lot of lotions in the cups, I also did away with the packets. I usually don't fill the cups until someone ask for it and then i will fill it to the top an charge them what a packet would of cost.

Re: lotion cups

we still have packettes, but if we are out of a particular name, then we use the cups if we have the bottle laying around.

Re: lotion cups

I have the 1 oz cups and fill them half way up (using the free 32 oz bottles that the manufactures ship out when you buy X amount of bottles), the prices range from $3.25-$4.25. I put a lid on mine and that is the biggest mistake to do because customers will try to get several uses out of them. If I give a cup away for free then I take the lid off. I still sell the packetts of lotion.
