Cream Silk Cleansing Balm

Today we’re blending up a Cream Silk Cleansing Balm that I’m really quite proud of. It was vaguely inspired by a storebought cleansing balm that I recently tried + a need for a really effective waterproof makeup removing product. In regards to the storebought cleansing balm I tried—I really liked how it melted on the skin, so I wanted to try to do that (but with completely different ingredients). And for the waterproof makeup—something about quarantine has me wearing more makeup than usual. I’m aware this is a bit odd, but whatever. I’m leaning into it… and then waking up in the morning with raccoon eyes because it would seem my makeup removal skills need to catch up to my application enthusiasm, ha. Anywho; this cleansing balm has a gorgeous decadent soft-solid-to-rich-liquid melt and works beautifully to take off a day’s worth of mascara and the like. I hope you enjoy it!

Passionfruit Coconut Matte Velvet Moisturizer

Today’s Passionfruit Coconut Matte Velvet Moisturizer is a riff on something I first tried back in 2016, and it’s lovely. Massage this soft, putty-like Passionfruit Coconut Matte Velvet Moisturizer into your skin and you’ll feel it turn into a velvety, super-smooth skin treat that leaves your face looking and feeling fantastic. And, best of all—you need just five ingredients!

Rose & Honey Rich Cream Cleanser

This Rose & Honey Rich Cream Cleanser is quite the treat—it’s rich and gentle, smells softly of roses, and leaves your skin feeling clean but not tight or dry. Made with sweet almond oil, fragrant rose hydrosol, and local raw honey, it has a positively decadent texture and is a delight to use. It’s also a rather neat look at how marketing can really narrow our perceptions of products; keep reading to learn how!

Nourishing Lip Mask

Today we’re blending up a simple, all-natural, Nourishing Lip Mask. I’ve called it a lip mask, but honestly, it’s a super versatile salve for all kinds of dry, irritated skin. It stars a short and sweet list of rich, soothing emollients to create a gorgeous ointment that’s brilliant for all kinds of things. Enjoy!
