Rosé Cream Blush

Today we’re continuing our Rosé DIY series with a lovely Rosé Cream Blush. Instead of working with a rosé wine inspired scent blend, this creamy pot of colour takes its inspiration from the cheery pink colour of rosé. It’ll lend a similar pinky, summery flush to your cheeks and lips, along with a hint of shimmer. I’m in love with this little pot of happy colour and find I’m reaching for it daily to add a summery pop to my look ❤️

Strawberry Rose Soap

These richly scented, pink swirly bars of Strawberry Rose cold processed soap were so much fun to make, and I’m so excited to share them with you today. They’re a continuation of our Strawberry Rose serum and pair a decadent fragrance oil with pink clay hanger swirls for some beautiful bricks of fragrant, juicy goodness. The swirl inspiration came from watching Zahida of Handmade in Florida work her magic at the Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetic Guild annual conference in Dallas back in May—if you haven’t swooned over Zahida’s work yet, I highly recommend doing so!

Pemberley Soap

If we’re going to be making Jane Austen inspired things, we obviously have to make a soap. I feel very confident that Pemberley would have the loveliest of soaps in all of the (presumably numerous) washing and bathing facilities. I also feel more confident than is perhaps historically warranted that the occupants of Pemberley bathed regularly. Anyhow—I wanted to create a soap worthy of gilded soap dishes and claw-footed tubs—something with the understated visual grace I associate with the Regency era. These creamy bars with a subtle, swirly top are what I came up with.

Mango Mango Cleansing Oil

I am so in love with this simple, vibrantly orange cleansing oil. It smells wonderful, works beautifully, and is so dang easy to make that it feels a bit like cheating. Compared to my other cleansing oils I think you’ll find this one lighter, perhaps a bit more satiny in the skin-feel department, and faster to make than cleansing oils I’ve made that also include emulsifying wax. It also creates a fun bit of orange abstract art as you weigh everything into your beaker or bottle!

Mango Mango Soap

Today we’re getting our mango on (again!) with a lovely loaf of bright orange, tropically scented cold processed soap. I had a lot of fun playing with some bright & summery micas, channelling all kinds of mango-y goodness into colourful slices of sudsy soap that kind of make me want to bake a mango pound cake (how good would that be?!). As much as I started this Mango Mango theme with summery daydreams in the middle of winter, I also thinks it works beautifully in spring with bright colours and general happiness 😄Let’s get soaping!
