DIY Sea Clay Face Mask

If you are looking for a recipe for a face mask, I found this one from The Soap Queen called Sea Clay Face Mask.  Since this mask contains plenty of clay,  it has a really nice thick texture.  It drys on your skin after about 10 to 15 mins which gives you the classic "dry" clay mask feeling.  If you have more normal or combination skin, The Soap Queen recommends decreasing the amount of sea clay to 1-2 ounces. But it will take a little long to dry on the skin.  She also recommends if you have extremely sensitive skin, having tea tree essential oil for 10-15 mins could be a little irratitatng.

Blackberry Tea Salt Scrub

Love using salt scrubs while you shower?  I found this interesting recipe from Wholesale Supplies Plus called Blackberry Tea Salt Scrub,  What is so interesting about it is the Pink Sea Salt.  What is Pink Sea Salt?  It is mined from ancient sea deposits in the Himalayan Mountains and it is considered to be one of the purest salts around,  These salts along with the moisturizing properties of the coconut and hazel nut oils, makes this a luxurious skin pampering experience.

It has been the rage of using plumping lip products for awhile. Someone mentioned that cinnamon essential oil was use to make that happen, but in this recipe from Soap Deli News called Tinted Lip Plumping Lip Balm, clove essential oil is used. This recipe gives lips a zing because of the clove essential oil to plump up your lips with the added bonus of a copper shimmery tint.  What is really great is that this balm is not for special occasions, but it can be used everyday.  Also, it is great for dry or chapped lips because it contains laolin.

Wow!  These bars look good enough to eat, but they are not to eat, They are sugar scrub bars that you use in the shower.  I have made solid sugar scrub bars before but I have never made them with distinctive layers,  Now that I have seen this recipe from Soap Deli News called Strawberry & Chocolate Fudge Solid Sugar Scrub Bars, I really am interested in trying to make them.

Rose Clay & Charcoal Soap Tutorial

It has been 2017 for 10 days.  Are you still looking for a rejuvenating cold process soap recipe?  I found this one from The Soap Queen called Rose Clay & Charcoal Soap. Both rose clay and charcoal are known for their oil-absorbing properties.  According to the Soap Queen, charcoal in particular binds to dirt and oil in the skin, bringing them to the surface,  In this particular recipe, the charcoal is sprinkled in between layers to create rustic looking stripes.
