Even Better Makeup Brush Cleanser

Over the last year or so I’ve been working on all kinds of different waterproof makeup formulas—a gel eyeliner, in particular, is a big goal of mine, as is a long-wearing liquid lipstick. While the formulas still need work before they will stay on my face for ages, I very quickly reached a point where they would stay in my makeup brushes quite stubbornly and realized I would need a new, stronger makeup brush cleanser than the one I made last year. Here’s what I came up with—it kicks butt!

Rose Bentonite Clay Facial Mask

Today’s recipe is a super-crunchy, super simple clay mask starring four lovely, natural ingredients. Fragrant rose hydrosol and moisturizing vegetable glycerin team up with creamy French green clay and powerfully absorbent bentonite to create a rich face mask that leaves your skin feeling tightened, brightened, and refreshed.

Mango Mango Foaming Hand Wash

This Mango Mango Foaming Hand Wash is all about the bubbles—rich cascades of mango-scented, orangey clouds of lather that make hand washing a treat. Nothing needs to be heated so you can just stir everything together and you’re off to the races. I’ve already made over a kilo of this stuff so I can happily wash my hands with something reminiscent of a daiquiri for the foreseeable future. Awww, yeah.

Today we are continuing my quest to MANGO ALL THE THINGS with this juicy Mango Mango Body Lotion. It’s a pretty simple lotion, designed to showcase mango love without too many fancy ingredients. It’s lightweight and moisturizing, bright orange, and smells like beaches and happiness. I think you’re going to like it.

Pemberley Hand Lotion

I’m really excited to share this formula with you guys—this Pemberley Hand Lotion was my Formula Botanica final project, and I received a mark of 100% for it! The project was to create a product for a specific customer. I designed this gorgeous hand lotion for professional women, aged 30–40, who work in an office setting. It had to be ultra hydrating but also super fast absorbing so the user wouldn’t leave greasy fingerprints on papers or touch screens. The scent had to be soft as heavily perfumed products are frowned upon in office settings, but I also wanted it to be luxurious and pleasing to give the user a bit of a sensory break from their busy day. This is what I came up with!
