Meeting us....dated

I must say I am loving the dating on the new escape collection (relaunch) of the Aruba Coconuts, Rio Rumberry and Bali Mango.  I wish that all of the products were dated with the line name....it sure would make organizing and storing easier.               Such pretty soaps.....
