Cleansing Mud Mousse

Have you ever stumbled across a for-sale skin care project that was so simple, yet so expensive, that it made you downright mad? That was my initial reaction to the product that inspired this DIY. $70 for mostly clay, some salt, some inexpensive herbs, and some spices I have in my kitchen. $70!?! And that’s US dollars, too, so that’s nearly $95 Canadian with the exchange rate these days, and… what!? Anyhow, I guess I like to channel my rage into making things (who is surprised?), so I did. I made myself a bunch of Cleansing Mud Mousse for a whole lot less than $95, and now you can, too.

London Fog Bath Salts

I’m feeling really tired and overwhelmed these days. I don’t know if it’s because it’s winter or what, but I feel like I’m running around like mad, barely managing to keep on top of my to-do list. It feels like everything is piling up and all I want to do is turn off my phone and watch Netflix in bed. I did a dumb yesterday; I was filming videos, so I temporarily turned off the furnace so it wouldn’t be whirring and groaning in the background audio. Then I went out for the night and forgot to turn it back on, and when I got back it was 8°C (46°F) in the house. Brr. I remember making a mental note to turn it back on before leaving, but I clearly didn’t, and boy did I feel like a dolt when I waltzed inside and wondered why it didn’t feel as warm as it should. Duh. And ugh. I spent the rest of the day hanging out in my jacket and toque and feeling like a proper idiot. Anyhow, that led to the need for these London Fog bath salts—so I could take a nice hot bath and crawl into my pre-heated bed and hopefully fall asleep without feeling like I was winter camping.

Fizzy Foaming Face Scrub

Today’s rather fun Fizzy Foaming Face Scrub comes from a recipe request Kaylee sent in. She’d found a facial scrub that fizzed up like a bath bomb when it got wet, as well as lathered up into a lovely foaming scrub that left your skin feeling wonderfully clean and exfoliated. The ingredients were simple enough, and I loved the idea of some fizz with my facial scrubbing, so here we are—Foaming Fizzy Facial Scrub!

Winter Wonderland Bath Bombs

These pretty blue nuggets of fizzy, pine-scented goodness are the perfect accompaniment to a hot bath on a cold winter day. They’ll tumble in the bath water, fizzing away and releasing a fresh, wintery scent blend of pine, fir, and vanilla along with skin-softening ingredients like Epsom salts and baking soda. These Winter Wonderland Bath Bombs are also the last Winter Wonderland recipe of the season as we come close to wrapping up my Holiday gift idea recipes!
