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!

Coral Lip Balm

This pretty coral lip balm brings a pretty pop of colour and a hint of shimmer to an already awesome tube of lip balm. It’s fun to make and easily tweaked to your preferred shade of coral and level of colour and shimmer—I like it a lot.

Über Anti-Acne Soap

After years of DIYing, I’ve got a pretty good cache of acne-fighting ingredients. From clays to herbs to essential oils, my basement cupboards are a veritable arsenal of zit-busting weaponry, and these bars of soap have it all. They’re designed to clobber zits and stop acne before it starts. They’re also pretty groovy looking.

Candy Cane Body Lotion

This thick and luxurious candy cane body lotion makes a lovely Christmas gift. It leaves the skin soft and slightly peppermint scented, and if you’re looking for a bit of an extra festive hint, you can add a touch of mica for some holiday shimmer.

Liquid Peppermint Hand Soap

After finally getting around to publishing a basic overview on liquid soap, I thought I’d kick off my new litany of liquid soap inspired recipes with a simple peppermint hand soap. This is the type of soap you can pop in a pump-top bottle and use to wash your hands, or use in the shower as a body wash or shampoo. It’s pretty darn all-purpose, and I think that’s awesome.
