The Story of Short & Sweet

Short & Sweet Body Care started in 2019 in Southern California and came about because we simply couldn’t find small batch sugar scrubs at a fair price in a scent we loved. If it was a great scent, the price was too high. If the price was reasonable, the scent was lacking and didn’t inspire us to buy it.

We had been looking for gifts for Mother’s Day for mom and mom figures, and after posting on Facebook for last minute Mother’s Day gift options, we had so many orders and then repeat customers from our new sugar scrub fans. Then, so many people said the scent was so good that they wanted to eat the body scrubs, we developed a new line of 100% edible Lip Scrubs. Those sold out immediately, and we decided to open a business since we were having so much fun making these products and they brought so much joy to our new scrubs’ supporters.

Since then, we have also developed a line of other body products to coordinate with the Body Scrubs, such as Lotions, Body Oils,Bath Soaks, Candles, and more, all in the same intoxicating fragrances our customers love! You can find all our new and original products right here on our website, or custom create something all your own.

What is Curated Body Care?

We’re glad you asked. Think of us like a curator and you, dear reader, are the museum. We do everything possible to make the best products (our version of art) for you to look and feel your absolute best. Every museum (customer) is different- different preferences, skin types, budgets, so we make our products unique to each one. We rarely have products pre-made, so each product is hand made in small batches for your exact order, from container, to fragrance, to color, and extras. Let us curate something amazing for you today!

Why is it called Short & Sweet?

In June of 2021, we bought a mini school bus (yes, a short bus!) and we are converting it into a mobile workshop and market booth. We’ll be able to not only store our ingredients in the bus for easy access to make our products to sell here on the website, but also bring everything we need with us for pop up shops, in home custom body care parties, and have hand made products whipped up in small batches before your eyes at local markets too. See our progress on Instagram at @littleblu.bus

Who Runs Short & Sweet?

My name is Laura Meier and I created Short & Sweet with the help of my mom, best friend, my mom’s best friend, and a bunch of my coworkers as smell testers and guinea pigs for my products.

I’ve always had a passion for body care products, as evidenced by my bathroom’s overflowing cabinets of soaps, scrubs, face masks, bath bombs, samples of everything under the sun, and a ton of body oils and lotions. Though I originally started making my Body Scrubs as gifts, I turned it into a business using my experience from previous jobs in customer service, marketing, creating websites, and previously running an event planning business. My other interests include travel, margaritas, long naps, farmer’s markets, bike rides by the beach, and having seriously smooth legs (thank goodness for body scrubs!).
