Cream of Earl Grey Cleansing Conditioner

I’ve had loads of requests for a cleansing conditioner, and I’m really excited to finally have one to share! This one is decadently creamy and works through the hair with no lather. It rinses out beautifully, leaving the hair clean and wonderfully manageable (I couldn’t believe how easily I could finger comb through my hair after the first use!). If you’ve ever made lotion you’ll find this wonderfully easy to make, and if you’re a fan of CO washing, I think this Cream of Earl Grey Cleansing Conditioner is right up your alley 😊

Lemon Rose Facial Lotion

This lightweight, hydration-packed facial lotion is one of my formulas from my Formula Botanica coursework, and it also happens to be the first recipe I’m sharing using hyaluronic acid! I tested this lotion through some of Calgary’s driest winter months and found it to be a wonderfully hydrating, yet lightweight final step to my skin care routine. It smells divine, is full of good things, and is definitely a rather decadent DIY skin treat!

Conditioning Ginger Oak Moss Beard Oil

It’s been a while since I made a beard thing, and since I’ve been working with this lovely ginger oak moss essential oil blend quite a lot, I got to thinking… goodness. Beards should smell like this…. I could make beards smell like this. And here we are, with a lovely, simple beard oil recipe that will make beards smell like deep, sweet, mysterious goodness. Like wandering through a quiet forest in a plaid shirt, carrying an axe for no particular reason, with an unfailingly happy Labrador named Beau. Like cozy cottage bedrooms and sunsets on the dock and… I think I miss summer. But this beard oil is also lovely, and also makes a great body oil if you do not have a beard.

Airbrushing Primer Stick

This silky Airbrushing Primer Stick is basically a fantastic hybrid of primer, stick foundation, and my airbrushing powder. It helps control oil, blur imperfections, even out your skin tone, mattify your complexion, and keep your makeup on longer—all awesome things, no? It also goes with a silky smooth, dry-touch finish that is downright luxurious. You can put it in a stick or a compact, making it all kinds of versatile (I’m definitely more skilled with the compact application). I’m loving it combined with a touch of concealer for a bit of lightweight complexion perfection, and I think you will, too.

Winter Solstice Face Cream

I’ve had a lot of requests for a straight-up face cream, but for some reason or another, I haven’t really strayed into that territory too much until now. That’s mostly because I adore oil-based serums; my skin loves their potency, and when a serum is 100% oil based that means you can really load your skin up with all kinds of fatty acids that are amazing for your skin (linoleic acid 😍) without any water diluting them. But… when winter sets in and dehydration begins to be a chronic issue, the appeal of including water becomes much more obvious. So, here we are, with a recipe for a richly hydrating Winter Solstice Facial Cream. I love it, and I think you will, too.

10 Recipes to Make with Argan Oil

If you’ve spent much time around these parts, you know that argan oil and I have a long-standing love affair based on a mutual love of my skin looking awesome. Argan oil is the first oil I ever put on my skin (after much reassurance from Meredith, who swore up and down putting oil on my skin wouldn’t trigger the breakout to end all breakouts), and despite my initial hesitation, I fell hard and fast. In fact, you could probably blame argan oil for all of Humblebee & Me, which seems like a lot to put on the shoulders of a humble oil from Morocco, but there you have it!
