27 Su Lin's new cheerleader !
Leaning on the window sill, Su Lin put down the box of herbs she was playing with and gazed at the road and the people walking by. This has been a ridiculously slow week for her.
There is literally not much she could do now without more money and more equipment. There is so much more to explore and discover in this world but alas she apparently lacked the means to do any of it ...
Brushing her hair she again started going over the herbs she had and mentally hypothesized about some more combinations.
Even for just 3 herbs there are 6 different combinations with just 2 herbs mixed together at a time. With the batch of 30 different dry herbal powders that grandpa Han had gotten for her, there were at least 1000 different possible combinations.
With this, when you add in the factors such as temperature and pressure,the list further increases. Not to mention using catalysts. Though she was in a different world, the basics of alchemy can't possibly change that much.
Snapping back to reality, Su Lin cringed at her hair. Brushing her hair felt like combing through a stack of hay... so dry and mealy. Unfortunately she couldn't come up with any solutions for it just yet.
Actually apart from that moisturizer, she hadn't been able to come up with anything else till now. Letting out a long sigh, she prepped and started her morning workout routine.
She has been working out regularly ever since she moved here. The previous Su Lin apparently had absolutely no faith in any kind of fitness routine. The body was extremely weak with an abysmal muscle to fat ratio.
But the new Su Lin very ardently regarded her body as a temple. Don't get her wrong. She was still all about looking beautiful. But just took a more holistic and complete approach towards beauty.
Beauty and radiance has to come from the inside. There is no beauty without health and fitness. Oh and of course money.
Just when she was about to head out, unexpectedly a well dressed middle aged woman was standing at the door. "Is the shop closed miss ?" she asked.
Overjoyed, Su Lin changed her schedule in an instant and answered back without hesitation , " Not at all. Come in."
The woman, Mrs. Zhenghai strolled in took a seat and asked, "so you are the up and coming beautician who sold Mrs. Guo that moisturizer?"
Mrs. Guo was one of mama Meng's friends who had previously visited Su Lin's shop along with Mrs. Han. And mama Meng had jokingly mentioned about Mrs. Guo gifting the nasty moisturizer to her competition.
But Mrs. Guo took it a step forward and actually ended up doing that.. of course completely with bad intentions. However, that plan backfired and the moisturizer ended up being really good. And thus, Mrs. Zhenghai, was currently sitting in Su Lin's shop !
"Mrs. Guo ?" Su Lin was blanking out. Of course, she zoned out of most parts of that event last week. Still not sure she added, "I do sell moisturizers though, if you want to take a look at them."
"Yes yes of course. The one I used last week was amazing! I really hope you have more " Mrs. Zhenghai replied enthusiastically.
Smiling Su Lin handed the sample bottle to her and said, "is this the one you used ?".
Taking a little moisturizer on the spatula Mrs. Zhenghai tried it on her skin and immediately replied "Yup. This is the one ! How do you make this dear ?! It is so amazing, better than the branded products."
Surprised Su Lin replied, " it is completely organic. I personally don't like putting chemicals on my skin."
Mrs. Zhenghai nodded and agreed, "yes you are absolute right. Most of the chemicals have a long-term side effect even if short term nothing is noticeable ! What herbs do you use ?"
And before Su Lin could reply, Mrs. Zhenghai added, "I know I know trade secrets. I won't nag you. But keep up the good work. Give me 5 of these. Do you have any other products dear ?."
Trade secrets ? Maybe I shouldn't be broadcasting what I use to make these. Thinking deeply, Su Lin replied, "I am working on some other things but nothing finished yet ! " She handed over 5 bottles of moisturizer to Mrs. Zhenghai.
"How much do I owe you dear?" Mrs. Zhenghai got ready to leave and asked.
"That would be 1500¥ per bottle. 7500¥ in total." Su Lin gave her previously calculated numbers.
Mrs. Zhenghai was surprised a little bit still decided to buy them anyways, "Expensive but definitely worth the price." She left smiling.
As soon as she left, Wang Yu couldn't help but peek inside and inquire, "that expensive ? What shit are you mixing in ? Gold ?"
"Seriously that's expensive. I don't think many people will cough up that much money. Are you sure you want to sell it at that rate ?" Wang Yu asked.

"Yes yes .. I am sure.. last week when I was checking out other cosmetic shops, I saw that more people preferred the expensive stuff over cheaper stuff. Apparently the more expensive it is, the better quality it has ?!" Su Lin innocently answered.
Wang Yu couldn't help but laugh out loud, "Bwah ha ha . And what sort of fucked up logic is that ... ha ha"
"Hmph. We will see if it sells or not. Then I will be the one laughing." Su Lin sulked and shut the door on his face.
And that's how mama Meng ended up being Su Lin's second biggest cheerleader, right after grandpa Han.
