Hand Wash for Lots of Handwashing

While frequent, thorough hand washing has always been a very important part of personal hygiene practices, its importance has skyrocketed recently as COVID-19 spreads around the world. Proper handwashing works better than hand sanitizer, but you do need to do it properly, and for long enough—I found this video from CBC really helpful for upping my handwashing game. Anywho, I formulated this hand wash to be suitable for lots & lots & lots of handwashing. It smells pretty, lathers beautifully, and glides around for ages so you can happily scrub-a-dub for the recommended handwashing time. Let’s dive in!

Chocolate Cherry Whipped Body Butter

Our indulgent Chocolate Cherry theme continues today with a decadent whipped body butter that could easily be mistaken for dessert! This soft, marshmallowy body butter stars fragrant cocoa butter, silky cherry kernel oil, and lightweight mango butter—and it’s utterly lovely. I worked through many variations of this formulation, both in terms of ingredients and process, to create a whipped body butter formulation that stays light and soft despite containing quite a lot of brittle cocoa butter, and I’m so thrilled with how it turned out. Let’s get whippy!

Argan Rose Cleansing Conditioner

If you’re a fan of cleansing conditioners, I think you’re going to like this Argan Rose Cleansing Conditioner. It gently cleanses your hair, leaving it all kinds of soft and shiny with a lingering rosy, lemony scent. Luxurious argan oil and fragrant rose hydrosol star in the formulation, and I’ve also included two newer ingredients for a bit of added fun! If you don’t want a cleansing conditioner you can easily modify the formulation to be a regular conditioner, too.

Watermelon Mint Hand & Body Lotion

This powder-pink Watermelon Mint Hand & Body Lotion is a bit of a departure from the heavier designed-for-winter lotions I’ve shared lately (I might be dreaming about warmer weather!). It’s lightweight, with gorgeous slip and fast dry-down, and it’s pump-bottle friendly. The scent is a soft and fresh blend of peppermint and watermelon that lingers lightly on the skin. I’ve also kept this lotion more on the natural side of things, using a new-to-the-blog natural silicone alternative and one of my favourite ECOCERT emulsifying waxes. Let’s dive in!

Argan Rose Soap

Today we’re swirling up some luxurious bars of Argan Rose Soap, made with vitamin-rich argan oil and dusty pink Australian clay. Crimson rose buds and rustic Himilayan pink salt stud the top of the bar, and a rich pink swirl dances through the middle of the bars. These bars are part of our ongoing Argan Rose theme, so if you’re looking to create a themed gift basket you’re in luck!
