Soft Velvet Cleansing Oil

Today we’re whipping up a velvety cleansing oil that’s great for all kinds of facial cleansing, but especially brilliant for removing makeup. I created it with waterproof eye makeup in mind, as it likes to hold onto my lashline for dear life! This cleansing oil has a gorgeous, velvetty skin-feel and rinses off beautifully, leaving skin clean but not dry and squeaky. You can easily customize it to use up any older carrier oils you need to get through quickly, too! With just five ingredients (and it could be 4!), this Soft Velvet Cleansing Oil could hardly be easier. Let’s dive in!

Lavender Aloe Hydrating Facial Toner

‘Tis the season for heaps of hydration! This DIY was initially inspired by a popular lavender witch hazel toner product, but I decided to really amp up the hydrating/humectant-y goodness in the spirit of Asian-style hydrating toners (rather than Western astringent-y toners) and that amping has led us off into new territory. The final product is rich in humectants and skin-soothing goodies—perfect skincare things for ultra-dry January!

Winter Solstice Facial Gel Cream

It’s time for another Bee Better project with a revamp of my first-ever face cream—2014’s Winter Solstice Face Cream. This new version uses several newer skin-loving ingredients to create an even better facial lotion that is designed to deeply hydrate and strengthen your skin. It’s somehow both rich and lightweight, with a gorgeous skin feel, a soft rosy scent, and all kinds of fabulous-for-skin ingredients. I hope you love this new version just as much as many of you loved the 2014 one!

White Chocolate Peppermint Lip Scrub

I’ve had quite a few requests for a new lip scrub formulation recently, and I thought our White Chocolate Peppermint theme was perfectly suited to a lip scrub—so here we are! This DIY is quite crunchy, with just five simple ingredients. It’s pretty easy to whip up (literally—it’s whipped!) and can be gifted in cute little tins or jars. Pair it with one (or both) of the holiday lip balms I’ve already shared this season for a decadent lip treat!

White Chocolate Peppermint Vegan Lip Balm

Today we’re whipping up some beautiful stocking stuffers—White Chocolate Peppermint Vegan Lip Balm! Despite lip balm being inexpensive and easy to make, people are pretty accustomed to paying about $5 a tube for the stuff. This creates a lovely opportunity for you to become the lip balm fairy for all your friends and family! Create a few batches of lip balm early in the holiday season (along with other easily giftable DIYs, like soap) and you’re ready with gifts for any and all last-minute gift exchange invites. Score!

Cranberry Orange Facial Serum

Today’s Cranberry Orange DIY is a silky, indulgent oil serum packed with antioxidants and some of my favourite natural carrier oils. A pump or two at the end of your skincare routine is all you’ll need to keep your skin soft and glowing through these dry, cold winter days. It pairs perfectly with the Cranberry Orange Facial Gel Cream I shared last week; I like to top the gel cream with a few drops of serum as the last two steps of my skincare routine. Swoon!
