Strawberry Rose Body Glow Serum

Today we’re kicking off a new strawberry rose serum with this beautiful and oh-so-fragrant Strawberry Rose Body Glow Serum formula! This ultra-moisturizing body serum came about as part of my Formula Botanica Diploma in Organic Skincare Formulation coursework. The base formula they provided was a starting point for a simple oil-free lotion sort of concoction, featuring large amounts of vegetable glycerin. I remember the first thing I thought when looking at it was “that’ll be way too sticky”. Once I made it, I was quickly humbled—I loved it. So I started riffing on the idea, and here we are.

Mango Mango Body Lotion

Today we are continuing my quest to MANGO ALL THE THINGS with this juicy Mango Mango Body Lotion. It’s a pretty simple lotion, designed to showcase mango love without too many fancy ingredients. It’s lightweight and moisturizing, bright orange, and smells like beaches and happiness. I think you’re going to like it.

Soothing Micellar Water

Today we’re continuing our soothing series with this formula for a gentle Soothing Micellar Water. You’ll find many of the same soothing ingredients we’ve been using throughout the series, creating a soothing and softly scented facial cleanser. Micellar water is a gentle one-step cleanser designed to be swiped across the skin on a cotton pad—no rinsing needed. I love it for many things, but find it is extra brilliant for travelling (it’s a must for an on-the-plane overnight flight skin care routine). Paired with our Soothing Hyaluronic Acid Facial Serum and our Soothing Facial Lotion we’re starting to have the makings of a full-on soothing skin care routine!

Rose Aloe Body Cream

Today’s recipe is for a rich, fragrant body cream designed to soothe, soften, and hydrate dry and irritated winter skin. It is super thick and creamy (definitely not pumpable!), making it incredibly decadent to use. You’ll scoop up a silky dollop of this Rose Aloe Body Cream with your fingers and massage it into your skin. You will instantly notice the rich rose scent and the rich-but-not greasy consistency. As it absorbs it leaves your skin is soft, velvety, and super hydrated. This cream is just the thing for a bit of post-bath pampering on a cold winter night—I hope you love it as much as I do!

Soothing Foaming Hand Wash

Today we’re continuing our “soothing” series with a super-simple Soothing Foaming Hand Wash. I wanted to be sure to include a hand wash in this series because our hands take a ton of abuse in the winter. Frequent hand washing is great for preventing the spread of the cold and flu, but it’s also great for drying out hands, leaving them feeling tight and irritated (or worse—cracked and bleeding). This hand wash features a gentle blend of surfactants and some soothing ingredients to help you keep your hands clean and happy as we seem to inch towards peak winter dryness.
