Rose Witch Hazel Facial Toner

This sweetly fragrant, refreshing facial toner has become a fast favourite of mine. It smells deliciously of roses, features several soothing and lightly hydrating ingredients, and leaves my skin feeling revived and gently cleansed. It’s also crazy easy to make (no heat required!) and uses just a handful of pretty simple ingredients. I think you’re going to love it, too!

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?

Green Tea Coconut Emulsified Sugar Scrub

Today’s Green Tea Coconut Emulsified Sugar Scrub recipe is a request from Regina, who found a lovely (and pricey!) bright green body scrub that was spiked with matcha green tea and peppermint essential oil. I loved the idea of something green and fresh for spring—a scrub to buff away dry winter skin, leaving my super pale legs ready to welcome warmer days. A quick perusal of the ingredient list sparked a few ideas, and off I went!

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.

White Willow Micellar Water

I’ve been playing around with my skincare routine lately, and one of the things I’m toying with is the notion of gentler cleaners. I’ve been using African Black Soap a lot for the last three months (or so), and that was working brilliantly for a few months, but now it’s … not. Boo. I don’t know if it’s ’cause I’m more stressed than usual (new puppy ownership + lack of sleep will do that) or if it’s because my skin is no longer liking African Black Soap. Since the whole puppy thing isn’t going away, and it’ll take a while for the sleep situation to improve, I thought I’d try a gentler soap alternative. I’ve had quite a few requests for a micellar water recipe, so I figured this would be a good time to try one!
