Silken Rose and Green Tea Lotion

I’ve had this Silken Rose and Green Tea lotion on my to-make list for ages, and thought it was high time I moved it from the “to-do” list to the “done” list! Everything about it seemed like a good idea; healing aloe, moisturizing silk and honey, calming rose, and antioxidant-rich green tea all blended together into a light, hydrating lotion that’s perfect for summer. It turns out my to-do list was on point—this lotion is awesome!

Creamy Lavender Cardamom Cleansing Lotion

I am loving this gentle (yet super effective) creamy lavender cardamom cleansing lotion these days. It got its first hardcore test late one night (ok, early one morning) when I returned from a sparkle themed party with a good half of my face completely coated in neon pink glitter thanks to some Ben Nye Glitter Glue and some slightly misguided Pinterest inspired glitter dreams. I’d definitely gone way overboard with the glitter application (I was aiming for something Coachella-esque but ended up straddling the line between “sparkle spartan” and some sort of Vegas Barbie cancan dancer) and was definitely a bit worried about a) getting it all off and b) getting it all off without sandblasting my face with glitter flecks. This creamy lavender cardamom cleansing lotion was more than up to the task (phew).

Creamy Clay Cleansing Balm

This rich, gentle creamy clay cleansing balm is a hybrid between a cleansing balm and a clay bar. It pairs the cleansing powers of emulsifying wax and clay with nourishing oils to leave your skin gently cleansed and lightly hydrated. It also smells a bit like a creamsicle, thanks to a blend of sweet orange and vanilla-y peru balsam essential oils. I think you’ll like it!

Lady London Fog Body Lotion

This silky soft Lady London Fog Body Lotion is inspired by the London Fog latte—Earl Grey tea steamed with vanilla syrup and milk. This lovely lotion has notes of tea, bergamot, and vanilla, with an added note of rose for a slightly sweeter, more delicate experience. It’s divine.

Coconut Citrus Cleansing Balm

This creamy orange cleansing balm was born of a recipe request from Sonja. “What I am looking for is a recipe for a BALM that removes facial makeup (not eyes). Hope you can help. LOVE your website – a fab discovery for me. Thank you.”
