These are super easy to stir up (no heating required!) and are a lovely way to moisturize your lips and add a bit of shine. Let’s get started!

These formulations were inspired by the Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Blur Face Primer; a $52USD/oz. blurring facial primer that makes your skin look airbrushed. I’ll teach you how to make this primer for less than 1/5 the price, plus how to customize it into extra glowy and truly luxurious variations. Let’s dive in!

Raspberry Mint Body Custard

If you’re looking for a glossy, slippy, richly hydrating body lotion sort of thing for summer, I think this pretty pink Raspberry Mint Body Custard might just be it. This formulation is unlike emulsion I’ve ever made, with a consistency that puts me in mind of rich custard with a hint of taffy-like plasticity that’s rather fascinating. It stars lightweight raspberry seed oil, hydrating sodium lactate, and an all-natural palm-free emulsifier; I hope you find it as delightful and intriguing as I do!

Extra Creamy Green Clay Cleansing Balm

This Extra Creamy Green Clay Cleansing Balm is a Bee Better version of 2017’s Forest Cleansing Balm. That formula was one of the first anhydrous formulas I made with fatty thickeners and I remember being absolutely blown away by its rich, creamy, slippy consistency and incredibly easy rinse-off. I wasn’t the only one! Over the years I’ve heard from many people that my Forest Cleansing Balm is their favourite cleansing balm formulation 💚 Because the original was already pretty darn lovely, this updated version isn’t super different, but it’s definitely more polished.
