Well I do declare, I was laughing so hard at whitewave's post. OMG Girl I can sooo relate.
I don't wear make-up now, except for on extremely rare occasions. I think the last time I put on some eyeliner was over a year ago!
And I do agree with most of the 'female' posts on here. Make up and other cosmetic's wouldn't do it for me.
However, as was mentioned, soaps, lotions, chapsticks (flavored ones are nice), scented candles, etc are all very practical and probably would be more
bartarable than cosmetics.
For soaps you can choose a wide variety. Dove, Ivory, Irish Spring ... the more luxurious ones (i.e. Dove) just may bring in a higher "price" than
the more practical ones.
For lotions you can choose "perfumed" or (as with the soap) more practical ones. Even medicated type lotions may be in demand (i.e. something with
aloe in it).
Chapstick ... I couldn't live without it! I have about two dozen tubes at home and don't think I'll run out any time soon! (they were gifts)
There are tons of different varieties and they are relatively inexpensive. "Healing", Flavored, Colored, etc. Actually, I think the "colored"
chapstick would be a better barter item than lipstick for someone who's wanting that added little bit of color combined with a very practical
You mentioned you were learning to make candles! Awesome! Learn to make scented ones as well! While not all candles need to be scented, it would be
one of those practical/luxury combo items that can be "pricier" than the regular ones!
Oh, and feminine products would probably always be welcome by those who are still 'cursed' with those issues.
