Chocolate Hazelnut Emulsified Body Butter

I’m sharing this decadent Chocolate Hazelnut Emulsified Body Butter formulation to celebrate World Nutella Day, which falls on February 5. It’s definitely the sort of holiday I can get behind 🤤 This formulation is a Bee Better update to a 2014’s Chocolate Hazelnut Body Lotion; it’s softer, richer, includes more of the star ingredients, and features a vegan collagen alternative to help moisturize and rejuvenate the skin. Swoon!

Rosehip Oat Solid Oil Serum

This Rosehip Oat Solid Oil Serum formulation is a non-greasy, packaging-optional facial moisturizer starring some beautiful oils and antioxidants. The original inspiration for this formulation was Robbie Burns Day, which is tomorrow. I was thinking about Burns’ “A Red, Red Rose” and Scottish oat cakes, and somehow ended up here 😄

Creamy Clay Balm-to-Milk Cleanser

Today’s Creamy Clay Balm-to-Milk Cleanser is a Bee Better update to 2016’s Creamy Clay Cleansing Balm. It’s a rich, slippy, gentle facial cleanser that rinses off the skin beautifully. True to the name, it’s creamy and contains a hefty dose of soft white kaolin clay for a wee bit of physical exfoliation and a cleansing experience a bit reminiscent of a clay face mask. This updated version is gentler, fully percentage-ified, and has better rinse-off than its 2016 predecessor.

Frosted Cranberry Butter Balm

If you find you often like the idea of body butter more than the reality of it, I think you might just love this formulation. It’s creamy and silky with a gorgeous dry-touch finish that’s surprisingly powdery (in a good way!). You (and your giftees!) will be delighted with how light yet moisturizing this Frosted Cranberry Butter Balm is. Swoon 😄

Oat Cardamom Chai Emulsified Body Butter

Today’s Oat Cardamom Chai Emulsified Body Butter smells just like a warm, sweet chai latte and is a beautiful treat for your skin. Its thick, glossy loveliness is reminiscent of whipped body butter, but you’ll find it’s far lighter—a moisturizing mid-point between body butter and body lotion. Dollop this sweet and spicy Oat Cardamom Chai Emulsified Body Butter into a jar and treat yourself 😍
