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 😄

Mango Rosehip Solid Facial Oil

You’ll need just six ingredients to make this cheery all-natural Mango Rosehip Solid Facial Oil. It stars two stunning lightweight emollients and it is packaging-optional, so it’s a great way to reduce your packaging needs a wee bit. Making this formulation is a simple melt-pour-chill and the finished product is a fun (and solid!) way to wrap up your skincare routine.

More Mango Sulfate-Free Shampoo Bar

Today I’m sharing my first shampoo bar Bee Better project—this More Mango Sulfate-Free Shampoo Bar is an update on the Mango Mango Shampoo Bar I shared in March 2019 (almost exactly two years ago!). In writing, the differences between this updated formulation and its 2019 predecessor aren’t massive, but I find the differences between the finished products to be very pronounced. These updated bars are easier to make, harder throughout use (and therefore longer-lasting), and it’s much easier to create a smooth, lovely-looking bar with this formulation. Hooray!

Chocolate Cherry Whipped Body Butter

Our indulgent Chocolate Cherry theme continues today with a decadent whipped body butter that could easily be mistaken for dessert! This soft, marshmallowy body butter stars fragrant cocoa butter, silky cherry kernel oil, and lightweight mango butter—and it’s utterly lovely. I worked through many variations of this formulation, both in terms of ingredients and process, to create a whipped body butter formulation that stays light and soft despite containing quite a lot of brittle cocoa butter, and I’m so thrilled with how it turned out. Let’s get whippy!
