Buttercup Melt & Pour Soap DIY

It has been a really rain month here in California.  I am so looking forward to spring to arrive.  When I saw this melt and pour soap project from The Soap Queen called Buttercup Melt & Pour Soap made the rain go away momentarily.  This advanced melt and pour soap project takes 3 to 4 hours to complete and results in 3-4 pounds of soap.

DIY Sea Clay Face Mask

If you are looking for a recipe for a face mask, I found this one from The Soap Queen called Sea Clay Face Mask.  Since this mask contains plenty of clay,  it has a really nice thick texture.  It drys on your skin after about 10 to 15 mins which gives you the classic "dry" clay mask feeling.  If you have more normal or combination skin, The Soap Queen recommends decreasing the amount of sea clay to 1-2 ounces. But it will take a little long to dry on the skin.  She also recommends if you have extremely sensitive skin, having tea tree essential oil for 10-15 mins could be a little irratitatng.

Blackberry Tea Salt Scrub

Love using salt scrubs while you shower?  I found this interesting recipe from Wholesale Supplies Plus called Blackberry Tea Salt Scrub,  What is so interesting about it is the Pink Sea Salt.  What is Pink Sea Salt?  It is mined from ancient sea deposits in the Himalayan Mountains and it is considered to be one of the purest salts around,  These salts along with the moisturizing properties of the coconut and hazel nut oils, makes this a luxurious skin pampering experience.

Tinted Lip Plumping Lip Balm Recipe

Photo by Rebecca Dillon
It has been the rage of using plumping lip products for awhile. Someone mentioned that cinnamon essential oil was use to make that happen, but in this recipe from Soap Deli News called Tinted Lip Plumping Lip Balm, clove essential oil is used. This recipe gives lips a zing because of the clove essential oil to plump up your lips with the added bonus of a copper shimmery tint.  What is really great is that this balm is not for special occasions, but it can be used everyday.  Also, it is great for dry or chapped lips because it contains laolin.
