Coral Lip Balm

This pretty coral lip balm brings a pretty pop of colour and a hint of shimmer to an already awesome tube of lip balm. It’s fun to make and easily tweaked to your preferred shade of coral and level of colour and shimmer—I like it a lot.

Über Anti-Acne Soap

After years of DIYing, I’ve got a pretty good cache of acne-fighting ingredients. From clays to herbs to essential oils, my basement cupboards are a veritable arsenal of zit-busting weaponry, and these bars of soap have it all. They’re designed to clobber zits and stop acne before it starts. They’re also pretty groovy looking.

Coconut & Pineapple Face Mask

If you like piña coladas and getting caught in the rain, you will definitely love this face mask. It’s gentle, smells like a piña colada, and leaves your skin refreshed, gently exfoliated, and wondering if it’s in Tahiti.

Winter Solstice Soap

Here in Calgary, December 21 is a short, dark day. The sun rises at 8:37AM and sets at 4:32PM, giving us a whopping seven hours, fifty-four minutes, and seventeen seconds with which to go about our daylight requiring business. That’s less than half the daylight we have on the summer solstice in June. We’ve got nothing on the far north, but even somewhere comparatively close (latitude-wise, at least) like Toronto gets noticeably more daylight than we do on the darkest day of the year.
