Almond Oat Powder to Foam Facial Cleanser

This soft, silky powder transforms into a creamy, sudsy cleanser when you work it up with a bit of warm water between your palms. It stars soft and velvety kaolin clay and skin-soothing oats, and you can blend up a batch in just a few moments from just six ingredients. You can customize the exfoliation level and easily make it nut free if you want to. Let’s get started!

Gentle Oatmeal Almond Body Wash Bar

Today we’re smooshing up a Gentle Oatmeal Almond Body Wash Bar, featuring a generous amount of colloidal oatmeal and a beautiful, gentle surfactant blend. While I did design this with a body wash in mind, you can also use it as a facial cleansing bar and shampoo. It’s really easy to make, and really lovely ❤️

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 😄

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!

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!
