When it is marked "Sold Out", we have reached our maximum orders for that month and we will start taking pre-orders for the next month's batch after these orders have shipped.
I’ve stopped putting a time frame on what day of the month I’ll make it...farm life is too unpredictable! PS. August was delayed due to saving the life of a colicking pregnant donkey (#snowwhitethemammothdonkey).
Even with these efforts, your moisturizer could melt if left in hot black mailboxes in the sun for days! Please watch your email for tracking information and track your delivery. We will do our best to keep it cool in transit, but we cannot guarantee it will not melt in spite of our best efforts to keep it cool in transit. If you are local, you can select the following.
Our moisturizer is made to order in small batches, ONCE a month, the first and second week of each month. We only make enough to fill our orders, so each bottle contains the maximum benefits and is marked with the batch creation date and the expiration date. We have a very limited supply based on the amount of donkey milk produced on our farm, so please place your order early to get on the list for the following month! ***Orders received AFTER the cut off will not be filled until we make the next batch at the beginning of the next month. (We make two batches, and it takes between 3-5 days to make, so we will ship early the following week so orders don’t sit in trucks over the weekend.)
Most skincare products sit on the shelf for months and have expiration dates to outlast King Tut, but some of the best ingredients (like Rosehip Seed Oil), have a six month or less shelf life. Using products with ingredients that are past their prime not only means they've lost many of their benefits, but can also cause free-radical damage. Just one more reason people can't believe the difference when they try our "Better than Botox." It's like the moment you try a fresh baked cinnamon roll after living on Little Debbie your whole life. Like your first swim in the ocean when you grew up with a kiddie pool. Like sunbathing on the beach when you thought tanning beds were the bomb. Like, well, you get the idea.
Our moisturizer is best when used within 6-8 weeks or refrigerated for longer use. Check out the rave reviews from beauty bloggers on our Publicity page, read the reviews below from our customers, or just take our word for it, this stuff is the bomb. The epitome of Supercalifragilisticexpealidocious in a jar. And it's all organic, cruelty free, sustainable, eco friendly and crafted in small batches on our farm in Oklahoma with our farm fresh donkey milk. We use the highest quality organic oils and butters. You never have to worry about finding soy, parabens, or tetra sodium EDTA in our products. We believe your skincare should be as fresh as your food, so we refuse to use dangerous parabens, phthalates, or formaldehyde preservatives. We do, however, have to use a mild preservative to prevent mold and nasties. Because, it's made from milk ya'all.
***If you are not sure about skin sensitivities or allergies, please order a sample sized jar to try before ordering a full sized jar. (Mango butter is a tree nut and may cause allergies for some, rosehip seed oil can cause allergies in those with plant sensitivities, lavender essential oil, etc. for more on rosehip seed oil please read http://www.thedermreview.com/rose-hip-oil/ )

SOMETIMES, BIGGER IS BETTER: Originally we only offered this for $29 for 1.5 oz of moisturizer, in a 2 oz capacity jar. The problem was, it would settle in shipping and customers often thought the jar didn't look full enough. So now we are only offering this in the 2 oz option. The price per ounce is less, and we save on packaging and waste. If you don’t think you can make it through 2 ounces before the expiration date, please keep it in the fridge to prolong use...and don’t forget to moisturize your neck! Turtle necks are only cool year round in the Arctic.
REVIEWS for "Better than Botox":
"This moisturizer is so awesome. I have rosacea and other skin irritations regularly. I have spent hundreds of dollars on skinceuticals , kiehls, darphin all for redness relief and solid moisture without too much oil. My skin is sensitive yet tends to be oily too.... I am using it daily. So it will be gone way before expiration date. It's amazing. I want to share with everyone or maybe I want to keep it my lil secret. Ha! No , only kidding. I have been passing the good news around. I'm seeing my esthetician this week. Can't wait to share with her.
Btw... used the charcoal soap last night in my bath. LOVE it....."Kathy in Dallas, Texas
"I am LOVING all products!!! I have completely gotten rid of my face wash/astringent/acne cream and just been using the charcoal soap and the Better than Botox, so far...wonderful improvements. Also, my sons small eczema patches are clearing right up. Thank you so much for amazing products!" --Cassie in Tulsa, Oklahoma
"Thank you so much! I'm completely obsessed with how my skin looks and feels this morning! I most definitely want to be on the list for the next Better than Botox and Quail Egg Soap. I'm so thrilled with the other soaps I ordered as well. (Oat and Honey and Pure Unscented) My skin is beyond grateful. Thank you for making natural amazing products. Your story is inspirational." --Manard in Tulsa, Oklahoma
"It's been almost a week of using these nourishing products from Dulce de Donké and there is no going back for me! The Better than Botox moisturizer is a game changer! My skin drinks it up without any greasy residue and the moisture is absolutely refreshing. I massage about a quarter size into my face at night and wake up every morning to skin that feels exfoliated and smooth, and it's all natural!! I'll have a full review of the 3 products I tried on my website (they were all simply wonderful!) Who knew about the pure magic of donkey milk!? In the meantime, check them out with the link in my bio. Saundra is the owner/ donkey whisperer and has the sweetest soul and a truly moving story on how Dulce de Donkey began." -The OKC Woman blog
