Candy Cane Lip Balm

This idea came to me from Sarah over on the East Coast of Canada, who told me about making candy cane lip balm for Christmas last year. The idea stuck, and here we are! What could be better for Christmas gift giving?

Sparkly Snowball Soap Balls

These pretty, sparkly balls of soapy, sudsy goodness are pretty cool. They look like snowballs (or candies), but are perfectly at home in your soap dish or on your Christmas tree. They’re great for guest bathrooms or traveling, and are just neat in general.

Mojito Soap

My deep dive into beverage themed soaps continues with this minty lime tribute to the Mojito. It’s bright green and smells wonderfully fresh, and I just love the sprinkling of coarse sugar on the top for a hint of sweet sparkle.

Minty Face & Body Mask

In all my years of doing clay face masks, I really haven’t had much success getting men to give them a go. My dad rolls his eyes and laughs if he ever sees me in one, cousins have declined my goopy offers as politely as possible, and my brother wouldn’t dream of it. So, when I noticed my Glasgow-based model pal Ryan raving about Lush’s Mask of Magnaminty, I was intrigued. And then Elaine sent in a recipe request for it, and I was sold. Time to minty it up!
