New Lotion, Conditioner and Refills (and something new for the apothecary)

Besides making soap this weekend, I also made quite a bit of lotion.

In my last post, I talked about my experience with Wheatgerm Oil Soap and said I would comment some more on my experiment with Wheatgerm Oil Conditioner.  You will find that below.

On Friday, I published an entry about my experiment with making a redness concealer.

Saturday, I made a refill of my Tsunami lotion, because I already used up 16 ounces that I made a couple of months ago.

And today, I made a new lotion, using Nurture Soap’s “Black Pearl” fragrance. Continue reading “New Lotion, Conditioner and Refills (and something new for the apothecary)”

What a weekend it was!

Time again for my weekly wrap-up!   It was quite a weekend.

Friday night I made two soaps:  Spearmint Patchouli and Carrot Ginger Orange.

Saturday I made 4 lotions – Dry feeling lotion, luxury facial cream, luxury facial lotion, luxury conditioner.

Today I made one more soap (Dragons’ Fire) and got my pictures taken and measured the pH of my lotions.

I’d say I had a great time!  I love my weekends!    And next week is a long weekend because I am taking July 3rd off work (the day before the US Independence day Holiday). So I will have a 4 day weekend!  Can’t wait! Continue reading “What a weekend it was!”

Four Successful Lovely Lotions and Conditioners

Wow, I don’t know how time flies so fast!   I blinked my eyes and just like magic, it is Sunday night already!

Yesterday it was cloudy and rainy, so I spent most of the day taking pictures of the lotions I had made last weekend.   I only had time left to make one lotion last night.

Then today, I made 3 more lotions and managed to get some “draft” photos of them.  It was sunny again, so that always makes my camera non-compliant. Continue reading “Four Successful Lovely Lotions and Conditioners”

The last two vacation projects

Today is officially the last day of my vacation.  Tomorrow it is back to spreadsheets, meetings and long hours of I.T. related work.

As I decided to sleep in today rather than get up and have an early start to my day, I only got 2 things made, but they both turned out great, so I am happy!

Today, I made 2 lotions – Cocoa-Nuts Lotion and Vanilla Cream Moisture Therapy Hair Conditioner.

Pride and Joy – A “dry” feeling cream with Borage, Babassu and Rice Bran Oils (and a load of other goodies)

Last night, instead of being lazy and sitting around watching TV (which I really did feel like doing for some reason), I made one more thing — a thick cream.

I enjoyed the scent of my “Hello Gorgeous” soap so much, I wanted to make a thick cream with that scent (Avobath Type).   It turned out great, and I love it, so this one is for me (not for gifting).
