Silk Aloe Body Wash

This DIY came from an old ideas notebook I started back in 2014 or so—on a trip to Costa Rica, I believe (there are a lot of doodles of geckos and notes about surfing and passionfruit and goodness… to be back there now!). This little notebook is filled with all kinds of ideas, and it’s really fun to flip through all these years later, and remember what I was thinking back then and mesh it with what I’ve learned in the intervening years. Some of the ideas are pretty… misguided… but some are pretty good! When I saw “Silk Aloe Body Wash” in there I was shocked I hadn’t made it already, and figured it was high time I did—so here we are!

Soothing Makeup Finishing Spray

Today I’m sharing something I’ve been loving lately—a Soothing Makeup Finishing Spray. You certainly don’t have to use it over makeup (it’s also a great soothing & hydrating mist for bare skin!), but I’ve been using this as the last step in my makeup routine (and sometimes throughout the day if it’s extra dry or hot!) and I love how it works. This spray leaves my skin dewy and eliminates that powdery, “hey, that’s makeup on your face” look that can sometimes happen. It’s mostly water, aloe vera juice, and hydrosol, but this mist also has a great supporting cast of moisturizing and soothing ingredients. Let’s dive in!
