Snowflake Body Lotion

This decadent, whippy lotion is in perfect keeping with our snowflake theme; it’s light and fluffy, but with the most wonderful rich, creamy consistency that feels incredibly luxurious. The scent is softly herbal, and even though it’s really thick it’s delightfully light and fast-absorbing—perfect for using on your hands without leaving smudges on your phone and every piece of paper you touch. I’ve taken this lotion with me on my recent travels and I’ve always been happy to have it in the middle of airports and busy cities as a little touch of calm and hydration. You should definitely add some Snowflake Body Lotion to your holiday making list 🙂

Ultra Rich Meadowfoam Body Cream

It’s officially that time of year again—the time of year when my skin practically screams for lotion after I climb out of a bath or shower. When I’m slathering it all over there never seems to be enough lotion in my (usually sizeable) stash, so I decided to be sort-of proactive and whip up a batch of something designed to hit cold-weather dryness right in the kisser. This cream has a larger oil part to really help lock in moisture and soften skin, featuring a lovely blend of oils and silky cetyl alcohol for a decadent, Ultra Rich Meadowfoam Body Cream that’ll leave just-shaved legs feeling all kinds of happy.

Ginger Silk Summer Lotion

I’ve been experimenting recently with lighter lotions that are suitable for pump bottles and summery weather, and I am loving the results of these experiments. My first experiment was my Lemon Chiffon Body and Hand Lotion, and I was honestly surprised by just how much I loved it. You guys loved, it, too—Thais commented “This is my favorite lotion like… ever! It sinks in beautifully, doesn’t feel sticky and the smell… omg, I can’t stop sniffing my hands and arms. About your make a 2nd batch. Thanks Marie!!!” So, consider this Ginger Silk Summer Lotion experiment 2.0. And guys… swoon. Holy goodness moly WOWZA, I am utterly smitten with this incredibly lightweight, unbelievably silky, ginger-scented lotion, and I’m so excited to share it with you! 😍

Heavenly Cocoa Lotion

This divine, lightweight, Heavenly Cocoa Lotion went straight into my purse, and that is high praise. Jasper requested a “simple yet effective facial moisturiser. Something a little bit like the LUSH Celestial Moisturiser… I worked for the company a while back as a product trainer and it is their best selling moisturiser, so I feel a formulation based on this cream would be really useful for your subscribers too!” The original ingredient list had some really lovely things in it—almond oil, cocoa butter, and lots of vanilla—and we all know I’m a total sucker for cocoa and vanilla, so how could I resist?

Lemon Chiffon Body and Hand Lotion

I was just going to call this something like “citrus body lotion”, but then I made it, and I tried it. And oh my. That dull name was nowhere near good enough. This beautiful, silky lotion is unbelievably smooth and lightweight, leaving skin touchably soft and lightly lemon scented. As soon as I used it, chiffon sprung to mind. Silk chiffon. And then pie, because… well, lemons. So, it had to be Lemon Chiffon Body and Hand Lotion. It’s divine and indulgent, and I think you’ll love it.

Winter Wonderland Body Lotion

Ok, so you know how some people get “hangry”? They get all kinds of cranky and irritable when they’re hungry, sometimes leading their loved ones to carry around granola bars to avoid their low blood sugar induced wrath. I think there is a dry skin version of “hangry”. Something like “fritchy” (frustrated + itchy) or “drad” (dry + mad). Ok, so my name ideas need work. But I think the theory is sound. Anyhow, that is where this Winter Wonderland body lotion idea came from. Those infuriatingly dry winter days where you almost wish you could shed your skin like a lizard and just start fresh. Well, thankfully we cannot (erk), but we can whip up awesome lotions, which lizards cannot do. In the end, I think I prefer our way.
