Let the Good Times Roll!

I’ve been at it again, messing up my kitchen, filling my house with fragrances, and overflowing my dining room table with finished products!   I wouldn’t change a thing about it though — I am having so much fun!

This weekend I managed to make 5 things:  Telangyn Peptide Lotion, Gladback Collagen Facial Serum Spray, Oatmeal Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter, Facial Clay Masks, and Body Balms.

I think I am done now with making everything for my sister’s birthday visit, but I keep thinking of more things to make.  Good thing there is only one more weekend left before I see her because I am running out of room!

This is not the kind of stereotypical “redneck” that some husbands suffer from (ahem), but actual red neck caused by sun damage over years and years of exposure to UV rays.

Now, my husband likes everything unscented, and in this case, it is wise to keep this product unscented, as perfumes can aggravate redneck (honesty, I don’t know what the condition is called, but his neck is red, so I call it redneck).   He also has oily skin and can’t tolerate oil based products, so I knew it had to be oil-free.   Sounds like a challenge to me!
