Summer Glow Body Oil

Today I’m sharing a Bee-Bettering of one of my most popular formulations on YouTube; my Luminous Summer Body Oil. The original formulation is almost exactly four years old, published on July 6, 2017 (!). I’d made shimmer oils before the 2017 version; the general formulation outline is mostly liquid oils and emollients + enough shimmery mica to get the desired level of shimmer and colour on the skin. It’s definitely a simple enough concept, though there’s plenty of room for refinement.

Macadamia Vanilla Emulsified Body Butter

This decadent Macadamia Vanilla Emulsified Body Butter is lovely; it is rich and indulgent without being heavy or greasy. It smells softly nutty with a warm vanilla base note, and it’s scoopy and soft like a decadent custard. If you’re anything like me, you’ll probably be tempted to give it a taste… just to see… even though you know better 😂 If you love The Body Shop’s body butters, you’ll adore this mouthwatering formulation. Yum!
