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!

Candlelight Rich Hair Mask

Today’s Candlelight Rich Hair Mask is a decadent, rich emulsion designed to moisturize and condition the hair. I thought it was a brilliant fit for our indulgent Candlelight theme. I incorporated feedback I’ve received on previous hair mask formulations from Bees with drier hair types and worked with a curly-haired friend to develop and test this formulation. It features a large, rich oil phase and some wonderful moisturizing ingredients. How you’ll want to use this formulation will depend a lot on your particular hair type, but more on that later!

De-Puffing Peppermint Aloe Facial Roller

The idea for this De-Puffing Peppermint Aloe Face Roller came to me as I was drifting off to sleep on a warm July night. It’s part facial serum, part facial massage—designed to moisturize, soothe, de-puff, and cool your skin on hot summery days. A refreshing, hydrating facial serum is packaged inside a roller bottle so you can massage your face with skin-loving goodness on days where everything feels hot and sticky. I hope this perks up (and cools down) your steamy summer days—it’s certainly made some of my hot days a lot better!

Bi-Phase Hyaluronic Acid Hair Serum

This Bi-Phase Hyaluronic Acid Hair Serum is part leave-in hair conditioner, part hair serum. It features hydrating and luxurious hyaluronic acid, volume-boosting hydrolyzed rice protein, and ultra-light Neossance® Hemisqualane—I am loving working a few pumps through my hair from about the ears down. My ends are pretty dry these days as I am well overdue for a trim, but this serum perks it right up! And, since it’s a bi-phase serum it’s incredibly simple to make while still getting the benefit of both oil and water-soluble ingredients. Let’s dive in!
