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!”
After making soap last night, I feel like I got that out of my system for a little while. So today, I chose to use my Saturday to make a few more lotions.
Today I made my husband a “dry feeling” lotion, I also made a luxury facial cream and a luxury hair conditioner.
What makes something a luxury? I don’t think there is a definition for this, but I use it whenever I use luxury oils, butters, or additives. For example, if something contained just sweet almond oil, olive oil, and cocoa butter, I would not call that luxury. But if something contains oils like rosehip seed, evening primrose, olive squalane, or camellia seed oils, or expensive butters like murumuru, cupuacu, or tucuma, then I would call those luxury. Those are more expensive and exotic oils and tend to have different or “special” properties that can be used to tailor products to different skin types or skin issues (such as wrinkles, pigmentation and so forth).

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”
