my hands. Thanks for such a great product!"
"Wow! Picked up your Coconut Oil at the

I met you a couple years ago at the Farmer's Market in Oceanside.
your Extreme Cream and my mother-in-law always buys it for us when she
to visit us in Chicago. We will be in Oceanside May 22-29 and was wondering
you will be at the Farmer's Market then...I have many requests from my
to bring back a bunch of cream."
K.A., Chicago, Illinois
I meant to write about your amazing product for a long time. After many
of spending thousands of dollars on 'high end' beauty creams, I have found your
extreme cream® to
be better than any product I have ever tried at a fraction of the cost. It feels
so rich and creamy but not greasy. I love using it as a
face cream and even
around the eye area. It is perfect for dry skin all
over. I love it! I will
continue to be an enthusiastic customer for years
to come. Thank you so much!"

Kristen! I love your soaps and have found that even in the dead of winter, my
skin is not nearly as dry as some of my friends out here. I'm from San Diego,
but I'm glad that you ship all the way out to Illinois so I can still get your

Kristen!! I lived in Encinitas from 1996 until 1998. That is when I met my girlfriend,
Laura A. We have been the best of friends ever since! She can tell you that my
heart is there, in San Diego . Well, when I called her on Sunday, she told me
that she had just stopped at a farmers market in Encinitas to pick up 'the best
lotion, ever!' Since I have the worst skin ever on my hands, I quickly asked her
what it was, and she replied, 'Extreme Cream, from The Lotion Lady.' She told
me how beautiful her hands are looking & feeling! I cannot wait for my lotion,
from my beloved Encinitas, to come & save my hands!! Thank you, Kristen. Sincerely,"

you again for your products."

I love your lotions. The heavy duty (Extreme Cream) unscented
made my hands feel like they did when I was 20. I put on the body lotion this
morning and have a feeling I'm not going to run dry by afternoon. It was so nice
to meet you and experience your wonderful product. I am so sorry for the absolutely

I bought one jar of the extreme cream from you at the Oceanside
farmers market. My 18mo old son suffers from eczema badly. We have tried many
many creams and lotions. I remembered my little jar from California and tried
it on him. Literally overnight his skin was flawless and soft. I've used it everyday
since on his sweet skin and it has made all the difference. Thank you so much.

have never looked farther than your lovely products. They are just right, local,
perfect!...I gave my son the unscented lotion when his daughter Stella was born
last year...I tried to impress on him the value of a nice lotion with no parabens
or additives on his little girl. Shes turning out fine so far! Have a wonderful
holiday, and thanks again."
K.C., Carlsbad, California
I bought some lotion from you last week at the Oceanside Sunset
was looking for something to quench the dry skin on my face. All
other lotioins seemed to strip my face dry. I bought your Extreme Creme
and Original Avocado Lotion and I LOVE it! After just a few days of using
it, my skin is hydrated and I can feel good about my skin drinking it up.
I'm so glad I found you and thank you for your wonderful products. Do
you have any plans to make lip mosturizer? I put some of the extreme
on my lips and it helps a little. Thank you! Sincerely,"
I can definitely understand why the gardenia is a best seller! I won't
need the body lotion before Feb.3...........so I will place my order online. Thank
you so very much for making the most amazing Gardenia Scented Body Oil and Body

8 years ago, I bought a jar of Extreme Creme for my dry elbows. I have not had
dry elbows since and the jar is about 25% full, so I guess it is time to get another
one. I will likely get some for my friends too since it is Christmas time and
yours is a product I can really say I am happy with. As I get older (46), I have
started getting dry skin on my face so I have begun using it more often. I'll
get up to one of the Farmer's Markets and see you soon. Thanks."
P.C., La Mesa, California
Definitely worth waiting for! The rose oil is magnificent! Thank you
for the rose soap too. It is lovely."
must tell you how much we love your cream. We purchased it at the Farmers Market
in Encinitis a few months ago, and wow!!!!!!!!!did it ever help my cuticles. We
have the Amazon Herb Booth, we have not been back for some time we want to but
life is so full just now for us. Are you still there on Sundays?

writing to let you know that we received the soap and Extreme Cream within 2 days
of my order. Thanks for such great service. My wife found you at the Dana Point
Tall Ships Festival. Well she was using the Coastal Sage soap in her bath before
bed - and frankly, came to bed smelling like she had been on a hike in the chapparal.
It wasn't until our remodel, and I was forced to use the bath tub, when I tried
that bar of soap sitting in her soap dish. It was before work, when I first tried
it, and honestly, it totally destressed me from my pre workday tension!

Thank you very, very much."

I just purchased 3 bars of your "Lotion Lady" handmade
soaps at the Oceanside Farmer's Market only because the "Other Soap Lady"
hadn't returned to OFM in some 3-4 months, which is when I'd last bought soap
from her and which I really liked.
That was then ...
this is now! Thanks for explaining your process of making these incredible soaps
or I may never have tried them. To my amazement I can say I'm truly enjoying every
opportunity to lather up and experience the cleansing properties and lingering
scents of your soaps. I'm about through my first bar (don't recall the name of
it, but you said it was your #1 seller--let me know which one so I can reorder
when ready); the other one the Plumeria, and the 3rd bar is the Lavender Oatmeal.
on a bit of a tight budget right now ... looking for a job, but I plan on bookmarking
your webpage so I can order some of your other products when I'm able.
wanted to say THANKS! for a really wonderful personal care product!"
D.C.B., Oceanside, California
friend from Seattle, Washington sent me your product for my birthday about a year
and a half ago. She sent me your soap and it has made a WORLD of difference for
my skin. The three bars have lasted so long and I have converted my husband to
the soap as well. Both of our skin is virtually acne free. Before we used to get
occasional acne. Thank you so much Kristen 'Lotion Lady'!"

Not sure if you remember me but I bought some Extreme Cream for at a Farmers Market
a month or so ago for my 2-year-old daughter's Eczema but by the time I got home
(we live in Austin) the shea butter had crystallized and it was kind of crunchy.
You immediately sent me another jar and it has worked so well!! First thanks for
getting it to us so fast. Such great customer service! But most of all thank you
for making such a great product. It's the only thing that has worked and really
makes a HUGE difference. Thank you again!!"
W.W., Austin, Texas
I just wanted to let you know that the Lotion lady products have made several
gifts. People just LOVE them. Where I live there are several farmers' markets.
I wish you were near by....your items would sell and FAST. (I am in California
- near San Francisco) So glad that the items can be obtained via the web.
Also, I continue to buy them because of what it does for my skin. Mixing
the lotion with an oil....it is great! Both of my boys LOVE the Sandalwood soap.
Until my next order....have a wonderful weekend."
"Hi, I just bought some of you lotion at the fair in Solana Beach and I have to
tell you this is the best lotion I have ever had in my entire life, extreme lotion.
I laughed at you when you said that this would last a year, which I still don't
think it will, but (laughter), because I use it a lot. But, I mean this is really...really,
really, really good lotion! So, thank you."

didn't know you had a choice of scents with the original lotion. I do know that
your soap is wonderful. I am just loving it. My hands are back to being very soft

I've been using your Extreme Cream for
a few years. I service swimming pools and do installation and repair of pool equipment.
I've been at it for thirty years. Hands in and out of chemically treated water,
dirty pipes, PVC primer and glue. My hands get to where there would be cracks
across the grain to the meat. Ouch!! Three consecutive nightly applications of
Extreme Cream and my hands are silky smooth and soft. Miraculous! I've tried Bag
Balm, countless skin therapy lotions and nothing comes close to your wonderfull
product! In fact, nothing else worked. After buying one jar every year at Bernardo
Winery I felt it was about time for a testimonial. Hopefully it will induce others
to try your products. It is definitely a mutually beneficial situation. Thanks

at the street fair this summer, and now that it has finally run out, I've got

you in advance"
"I just wanted to tell you
how much I have enjoyed using the 'Extreme Cream'. I had purchased a hand cream
at a spa back in April and I was disappointed in it because it seemed to only
coat my hands and didn't really absorb into my skin. Your cream seems to penetrate
more into the skin. I want to thank you for contest and the opportunity to try
M.H., Hesperia, California
I not only love your products but also your promptness in delivery.
I have a feeling we will be talking soon and often,
Well I have been using your great products for a couple of weeks
now and WOW! I especially love the sea scrub it smells great and works great.
I bought some extra products so I could let my family and friends give them a
try, they also love them.My husband who uses nothing that would be considered
girly LOVES the soap,even the scented ( I gave my brother the unscented). He says
it doesn't leave his skin feeling dry like other soaps. I have recently started
to make gift arrangements that include some of the excellent products (including
yours) I have come across on the internet, television and locally...
C.R., Northfield, New Jersey
I just had to write, although I have seen
you about town, in your van and have stopped you to tell you in person how wonderful
your products are. I wanted to say it again in writing. As much of a fan I am
of the Extreme Cream, this is about the wonders of Calendula & Tea Tree Oil. With
the recent heat and humidity I developed spots of rashes between folds of skin.
I was about at the end of my rope with the itching and my scratching. I then remembered
I picked up the Calendula & Tea Tree oil for my husband. I tried and felt immediate
relief for the itching and with in a few days the rash was done. What a miracle!
thank-you, Thank-You, THANK-YOU!
BIG cyber hug for you. "
I just want to say how wonderful the Extreme
cream is for sunburns. After a sun drenched day at Disneyland, my forehead and
neck were bright red. Normally, this would start to flake and peel after a day
or two. However, after applying the cream before I went to bed and the next morning,
my skin has felt great. No peeling. No flaking. No pain. You are making great
products. Keep up the good work. "
B.H., San Diego, California
just received my soap order yesterday, the soap is wonderful! I was paralyzed
from the waist down 4 years ago and ever since then my skin has been very sensitive..
I've been looking for soap that is kind to my skin... and I think now I have thanks
to you! Thanks also for the little goodies I may just have to order the original

I left you a message tonight on your machine
but neglected to tell you that I wanted to place an order. I think it sounded
like I sold something already. Anyways.... a friend at work LOVES your Gardenia
Extreme Cream, and uses all of MINE whenever I'm there!!! I'm almost out too,
so could I please order 2 jars of Gardenia? ...Thanks alot."
Note: Gardenia scented Extreme
Cream? That's right! I take special
requests all the time. Send me yours, today!
In January I won jar of your Extreme Cream. I
just wanted to let you know (as if you didn't already know) that the stuff is
wonderful! I use it every evening on my boyfriend's excema and the cream stops
it from cracking. This is the only reason why he tolerates what he calls a "girly
treatment"... because it works. Heehee. I also use it when I have razor burn on
my legs and it is very soothing. And I know you say it's absolutely unscented
but it sure smells good to me... mild... but good. =)
wanted to thank you for holding a monthly contest. I'm very glad with the quality
of your product. As soon as we start to run out of this first jar I know my boyfriend
will have me ordering more! Thank you again.
All my best,"
Note: "N.A." won December's contest
and received her prize in January. She is describing original Extreme
Cream, not to be confused with the "Absolutely
Unscented Extreme Cream" which has no scent. Glad you like it, "N.A." Aloha!
received this e-mail from my dad’s wife and thought you might be interested
to know how they like your Extreme Cream. I referred them to your web address
too so they could see more things. Your web site is COOL! See you at Ocean Knoll.:
is using the hand cream you sent. It is clearing up his hands!!! He has tried
prescriptions and many many otc's to clear them up. The skin on his hands gets
really hard and cracks open, even bleeds. Tom will sit in the evenings, watching
TV and take a little bit and rub in his hands. IT'S THE BEST HE HAD FOUND!! So
far he has only used the cream from the lid, not even using from the jar yet.
A little goes a long ways! So thanks so very much.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!
Have a great day and talk to you soon, I'm sure.

your products at the Rancho Bernardo Winery Craft Fair, on Mother's Day 2002 and
absolutely love them. I am a massage therapist and initially purchased the Plumaria
Body Oil for client use - but decided to keep it for myself, I loved it so much.
I am also an Aqua Aerobics instructor and use the "Extreme Cream" to combat the
chlorine effects on my skin. Your products are great...Thank you - Thank you -
L.B., San Diego, California
"I really like the fact
that your products are so gentle to the skin and environment as it is so hard
to find both and yet find a selection as varied as yours. I especially like the
soaps and the variety of fragrances, especially the Hawaiian ones. It is kind
of like having the wonderful fragrances of paradise while being in your own home
so far away. Gosh, I am so sorry as I am not very good at comments."
received my lotion and it is hard to put into words just how much I love it. I
received in on Monday and immediately tried it. The lotion itself is so silky
and smooth and I love the way it has a light scent. I also love the way it does
not leave any greasy feel to the skin. I brought it into work yesterday morning
so I could use it at work. A few co-workers saw it and asked if they could try
some. I said yes and they all had the same reaction as I did. I gave them your
site url so they could purchase some for themselves. I hope that is okay. You
have my business for a long, long time! Thank you so much"
My daughter and I met you at the Seaside Bazaar on Saturday. Wow!
Your products are better than I'd hoped. The cream is incredible. I know my mom
is going to love it, too. It was great to meet you and know you and your products
are out there, just waiting for me. Sigh. I hope everything keeps going well for
you and your family. Thanks for the good vibes and good products,"

...I had to write you and thank you for putting me on to the Calendula, Comfrey
& Tea Tree Oil. You witnessed the mean looking injury I had on my hand; I
wish you could see my hand now. It would be a real testament to your products.
It worked better than any antibiotic ointment I have used in the past. Also, for
the extended regular treatment I was amazed how very little oil was used. ...I
will never be without it.
Best Wishes, God Bless.... and keep up the good
M.N., Encinitas, California
Received the soap today - thanks! It
smells divine and everyone in the mailroom here at the Law School was jealous!

be ordering more soon."

during the UCSD Fall Qtr Library Walk Vendor Fair and bought a jar of your extreme

is to buy 4 -5 more jars of the extreme cream and try the body lotion..."

some more of your stuff. Thanks again!"
K.M., Burbank, California
... The lotion is perfect for me. Knowing that a particular lotion doesn't work
for everyone, I feel very fortunate to have found yours. This morning I gave away
six bottles of lotion and now have space for the four that are upcoming. My dermatologist
will be very pleased to see the healing that has taken place. I will be sure to
tell her the name of the product and the source..."
I am so lucky to have discovered
your lotions. My chronic eczema condition is no longer chronic! My skin drinks
up the lotion! Living in the desert has been so hard on my skin, but I have found
my cure. I believe you're a God-send to me. Thank you."
M.B., Las Vegas,
I have been using your Extreme Cream, at night, for a year,

that my hands haven't suffered with 'cracks.'..."
E.S., Valley Center,

I am in water constantly. I work at a school cafeteria. "
This is great...I met you at a craft fair in O.B. and purchased some
