Almond Oat Balm to Milk Cleanser

Today’s rich and all-natural Almond Oat Balm to Milk Cleanser is a gorgeous way to gently wash your face, and it pairs wonderfully with my Gentle Oatmeal Almond Body Wash Bar! I’ve been using this softly oat-scented cleansing balm to remove eye makeup and wash the rest of my face, and I love it. It doesn’t leave my skin feeling stripped or tight—just clean and lovely. Let’s get making!

Summer Stone Fruit Creamy Face Mask

This Summer Stone Fruit Creamy Face Mask is part face mask, part gentle scrub, part cleansing balm—it’s really whatever you want it to be. You can use it as a mask one day, a cleansing balm the next, and a gentle scrub later that week. A beautiful blend of stone fruit oils teams up with two soft clays, an optional additional exfoliant, and an emulsifier to create something rich, creamy, and downright lovely. Let’s dive in!

Apricot Powder-to-Foam Facial Cleanser

This Apricot Powder-to-Foam Facial Cleanser needs just five ingredients, and it’s pretty cool! It’s a smooth, dry, orangey powder in the bottle, but once you get it wet it transforms into a silky foaming cleanser with just a hint of exfoliation. To make this cleanser we’ll simply blend everything up in a DIY-specific coffee grinder—you’ll spend more time gathering your ingredients and cleaning up afterwards than actually making the cleanser! Let’s dive in 😄

Ice Palace Sulfate-Free Shampoo Bar

Today we’re mashing up a beautiful Ice Palace Sulfate-Free Shampoo Bar. You don’t need to melt anything and you don’t need a press (you don’t even need a mould!). Just mix and mash everything together until you have a smooth, workable dough, shape that into some sort of shampoo-bar-ish shape, leave it to dry, and you’re done! The lather is really lovely—dense, rich, and plentiful—and my hair feels fantastic after washing with this Ice Palace Sulfate-Free Shampoo Bars (and then conditioning with last month’s Cocoa Coconut Simple Conditioner). You can also use this shampoo bar as a body wash bar to further reduce the number of bottles in your shower. Enjoy!

Gentle Clay Facial Cleansing Bar

Today we’re squishing up a creamy off-white Gentle Clay Facial Cleansing Bar, starring velvety white kaolin clay and a gentle surfactant blend that kicks off dense, rich lather. You don’t need any heat or even a mould to make these—just a bowl, a dust mask, and a pair of gloves! We’ll smoosh and squish seven ingredients together, shape that dough as desired, and leave it to age. And that’s it! Gentle Clay Facial Cleansing Bar, here we come.
