10 DIY Sheet Masks to brighten, hydrate, and soothe

One of the best superpowers you’ll develop as you become a formulator is the ability to abstract a formulation—to think about it beyond what you are told it is and think about all the things it could be. Shampoo can be hand wash, conditioner can also be a creamy face wash, and you can try using your latest body butter as a massage oil. So many products are needlessly pigeonholed by their name and marketing, and today we are un-pigeonholing ten of them to transform them into sheet mask essences!

De-Puffing Peppermint Aloe Facial Roller

The idea for this De-Puffing Peppermint Aloe Face Roller came to me as I was drifting off to sleep on a warm July night. It’s part facial serum, part facial massage—designed to moisturize, soothe, de-puff, and cool your skin on hot summery days. A refreshing, hydrating facial serum is packaged inside a roller bottle so you can massage your face with skin-loving goodness on days where everything feels hot and sticky. I hope this perks up (and cools down) your steamy summer days—it’s certainly made some of my hot days a lot better!

Clear Jelly Oil Cleanser

I’m pretty dang smitten with this Clear Jelly Oil Cleanser. It’s an oil cleanser… but gelled… and clear! I brainstormed up a big list of creative names like “Clear the Day Away” and “Diamond Velvet Cleansing Gel”, but in the end, I decided to mostly just call it what it is in relatively plain terms to help people find this awesome formulation if they are in the market for this flavour of wobbly facial cleansing 😄
