As suspected, yesterday was not as productive as some other vacation days this week due to the holiday, but I did manage to get a couple of things made last night. When combined with the things I managed today, it made a huge dent in my “to make’ list. So much so that I have only a couple more things to wrap up tomorrow and I’m done with Christmas making!

This weekend was all about playing with polymers to make facial masks! And I had a great time experimenting!
Yesterday I made a Rose Clay mask using Aristoflex AVC. I love how it turned out, and it left myself skin soft, moist, and happy!
Yesterday I also began this little project with Sepimax ZEN. I finished it today (because the Sepimax has to hydrate for 8 hours before you finish the product). Continue reading “Polymer Play – Vitamin B HLA & Cucumber Moisture Mask with Sepimax ZEN”
Hi all! I’ve been gone for a couple of weeks, working at my day job, which has been consuming much of my time lately. This weekend though, I got a little chance to play! I decided to while away my Saturday playing with polymers. Yes I realize this makes me sound like the biggest nerd in history, but I don’t care — I had fun!
Today’s project – Rose Clay Moisturizing Gel Mask! Continue reading “Polymer Play – Aristoflex AVC Clay Moisture Mask”
