One of the Best Complexion Bars on the Market Has Been Discontinued

August 30th, 2010


A few years ago, Burt’s Bees created a special eco soap line made just to take care of facial skin. One of the soaps in that line is Burt’s Bees Wild Lettuce Complexion Soap. This eco soap bar was created to provide a rich lather while gently cleansing the facial skin. Wild Lettuce powder and extract has a cooling, soothing and purifying effect on skin.  Added Aloe Vera and Comfrey leaf help to promote the skins natural healing abilities.  Although it is listed as a complexion soap, my wife and I enjoy it as a full body soap.  It lather quickly and is a full lather.  The smell is comforting and it rinses well.  If it is good for dry and sensitive skin, it should be good for the body, right?

It is important to note that this eco soap with Wild Lettuce has been discontinued only because the demand was not high enough to supplement the cost of hand milling and wild crafting each bar.  The bar costs $8.00 each in retail stores.  There was just no room to go up any further.

Once we at Name Brand Overstocks found out it was discontinued, we put a bid in for as many cases as they would allow us to buy.  We were able to get in it cheap and have passed that savings along to the buyer.  We are currently selling single bars on Amazon, and while our competitors are at $8.00 a bar we are at $3.95 a bar!  We are also selling lots of bars, all of the way up to case lots of 144 on eBay.  Just go through our links here on this blog to get to the listings.  This is truly a product that once it is gone, there will be no more.

In case you have not heard the Burt’s Bees story, take 4 minutes out of your day and watch the video below.  It’s definitely inspiring!

AOL is alive and kicking

So… I sell Burt’s Bees Bay Rum Shaving Soap on eBay and Amazon. It’s a great product, one that I use every shave. Once I tried it, I was hooked! The first thing that I said was “Wow, that’s the best shave I’ve ever had”!

It’s a bit pricey… about $6 a bar. But I’ve been on the same bar for about 6 months and still have a month or two left, so less than $1 a month is fine by me!

Why am I telling you this? Well, this past Saturday, I sold around 200 pucks to about 85 unique buyers. Sunday we sold some as well. When it was all said and done I had sold about 250 pucks of the shaving soap over the weekend… the majority coming from 5:33 AM Saturday to 11:30 PM that same night.

Now, I’ve had these for about 9 months. I had about 400 pucks total when I got these. I sold about 100 pucks over the previous 9 months, and then I sell 200 pucks in 18 hours? What the heck happened?

I couldn’t figure it out, so I decided to email about 20 of the 110 or so buyers and ask them, what made you come here and buy this shaving soap?

They all responded that they saw an article on titled 10 Guys Reveal Their Favorite Man-Grooming Products. ( It had info praising the qualities of the item and gave a link to Amazon. My price was $5.95 with $4.99 shipping as opposed to $14.95 with free shipping, which was the price for my only other competitor.

Some buyers checked out eBay, but most followed that link (it was about 8 Amazon buyers for every eBay buyer). Next thing you know, I’m sold out! That… my friends… is the power of the internet. And we thought AOL was dead…
