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!

Let’s dive in!

Satsuma Shower Gel

I’m pretty excited to share this Satsuma Shower Gel with you guys—mostly for two reasons. Reason #1: I was utterly obsessed with The Body Shop’s “satsuma” line as a kid, and I’ve had this gorgeous satsuma dupe fragrance oil for years, meaning to make satsuma-y things with it—and I finally am! Reason #2: this is the first self-preserving hydrous formulation I’ve shared. It’s been a long time in the making/testing, and I’m excited to finally share it.

Chocolate Ganache Fizzing Bath Biscuits

We’re doing a bit of calorie-free “baking” today with some downright delicious Chocolate Ganache Fizzing Bath Biscuits! These fun, fizzy bath treats were inspired by a request from Bethany + some LUSH products I’ve been ogling for a while. When I first started work on these I didn’t think I’d end up with some delicious bath cookies, but I love how they’ve turned out! They’re like the lovechild of a bubbly bath bomb and bath oil, filling your tub with bubbles and suds and transforming the bathwater into a rich, velvety treat. Oooer. Prepare to fall in love!

Argan Rose Valentine Bath Bombs

Happy almost-Valentine’s-Day! We’re celebrating this year with some seasonal bath bombs, featuring some shimmery mica painting and lovely pink fizzing. They smell beautifully of rose and lemon, in keeping with the shampoo bars I shared last week, but you could definitely choose a different valentine-y scent if you wanted to! Florals, vanilla, and/or chocolate all come to mind as deliciously seasonal scents 😄 I pressed these bath bombs into cubes using The Bath Bomb Press, though you can also hand-mould them if you don’t have a press.
