Vacation Nov 2018 Wrap-Up

I’ve had such fun this week, enjoying my time off from work and relaxing by making Christmas gifts for my family!  I just love my free time as it leaves me feeling creative and ambitious!  (I wish I had such ambition for my day job!).

I thought I would do a little “wrap up” post to top of the week’s activities and to serve as a personal “vacation album”.

Christmas for the Kids

Today was the day I focused on making some gifts for the kiddos on my list.

I have 4 great-nieces and 2 great-nephews to make for!  Of course they will be getting bath bombs, but they also like washes and lotions, and other bath & body products too!

A Thing a Day On Vacation – Vacation’s Over Round-up

As every vacation does, this one went by far to quickly.  I can’t believe it’s been a week already, but when I look back at all I accomplished in that week, I feel like I spent my time well.

This post is a round-up of all the things I made all week – this time with much better pictures. 🙂

A Thing a Day on Vacation – Friday Fun

It’s Friday already.  How the week flew by!  Only a couple more days left to get my “to do’s” done.    Luckily, I have already done everything on my original list and now I am down to just a few personal refills and maybe a couple more things just to do for fun!

Today, I spent the day making a refill of my favorite Wheat Germ, Flax & Rosehip Hair Conditioner, a new experimental sugar scrub I am calling “Lemon Butter Scrub”, and a new gel cream I am calling “Cooling, Hydrating Water Gel”.

A Thing a Day on Vacation – It’s all about that face!

It’s Tuesday, and I can already feel the clock running out on vacation.   😦   BUT, I still have a few more days left, so I am going to make the most of it.

Tuesday afternoon’s projects — Cucumber Hydrating Vitamin B Toner and Grapefruit “everything but the kitchen sink” Gel Cream!

Rosemary Mint Foot Butter, Cucumber Emulgel, and Pink Grapefruit Gel Cream

I was a busy bee this weekend.  On Friday, I made Cucumber Emulgel.  Saturday, I sewed some coin purse / gift card wallets, and today I made Green Apple & Ginseng Gel Cream, Pink Grapefruit Antiaging & Anti-redness Gel Cream, and a refill of one of my favorite daily-use creams — Rosemary Mint Foot Butter.

It seems like a lot, but the gel creams literally take about 10 minutes each, so it technically takes longer to do cleanup after making them than it does to make them in the first place. Continue reading “Rosemary Mint Foot Butter, Cucumber Emulgel, and Pink Grapefruit Gel Cream”

Green Apple & Ginseng Gel Cream

Time to celebrate!  My Aristoflex AVC finally arrived and I have created a gel cream.  Hooray!

Since this was my first formula using Aristoflex AVC, I kept it very simple so as not to waste too much money should I fail.   Luckily, it turned out wonderful, but any time there is a new ingredient, I try to be safe.

Today I am sharing the formula with you in case you would like to try a simple, small batch formula using this emulsifier.
