Since having learned that making or playing with homemade slime containing borax can possibly cause chemical burns, you may be looking for another option for your kids’ crafts. Preferably one that’s borax free. My DIY pumpkin spice soap is the perfect solution for seasonal fun for both kids and grown ups alike!

I first tried out a version of this moldable soap recipe on a girls’ night and we had a blast! And because you can make these DIY pumpkin spice soaps as simple or as detailed as you like, they are suitable for elementary school kids and up. (However, you may want to prepare the moldable soap base prior to handling for younger children rather than involve them in the full soapmaking process.)

Ingredients:

4 oz. Stephenson Crystal Hemp Melt & Pour Soap Base
1.1 oz. liquid vegetable glycerin
.25 oz. cornstarch
.1 oz pumpkin pie spice fragrance oil
orange color bar or liquid orange soap colorant, optional
skin safe cosmetic mica powders in colors of choice
isopropyl alcohol

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out 4 oz. of the hemp melt & pour soap base and cut into chunks. Place the soap chunks in a glass Pyrex measuring cup or bowl, then heat in the microwave in 20-30 increments until melted. Add color to suit, if desired, and mix well.

Next, weigh out the cornstarch and glycerin and stir into the melted soap base. Follow with the fragrance oil, weighing out the necessary amount first.

Whisk the soap base with a fork until all of the cornstarch has dissolved and the soap starts to thicken. Once the soap has cooled and can be molded without sticking to your hands, it’s ready to use!

Working on a covered surface or parchment paper, shape the soap into a pumpkin with your hands the same way you would clay. You can use a butter knife to help add details around the pumpkin. Once you have a pumpkin shape you like, you can paint your pumpkin!

Simply mix a small amount of mica with isopropyl alcohol in a dish to desired consistency to create your soap paints. I used green, gold and copper micas to paint my DIY pumpkin spice soap.

I mixed the copper mica with alcohol first at a thinner consistency to push the paint into the grooves I made around the pumpkin.

Once I had mixed the color I simply used a small paint brush to paint the lines around my pumpkin shaped soap.

I then used a gold mica and alcohol to fill in the areas between those I painted copper. Finally, I mixed up green mica and isopropyl alcohol and used that color to paint the stem.

Once you’ve painted your pumpkin spice soap, allow it to dry fully before handling. Then package and label as desired for personal use or gifting!

Once used, the mica will wash off, leaving behind an orange shaped pumpkin soap that smells like pumpkin spice!

Why Cream Eyeshadow?

Life is hectic. We have families and friends and work relationships. Some of us even have kids. And, if you’re like me, there a LOT of days you find yourself juggling to fit everyone and everything in while still taking time out for yourself. Personally, one of the ways I take time out for me is by simply putting on makeup. Just the process helps me on days I’m feeling blah and overstressed. Plus the fun colors give my mood a lift.

Plant based makeup is the new trend. However, you don't have to spend a fortune investing in premiere brand natural cosmetics to get it. Instead, try making your own! Simply start with a few natural ingredients and add micas to create your own custom colored makeup sticks! 

When I’m short on time I find that multi-purpose 3-in-1 and even 4-in-1 products not only speeds up my makeup application when I’m under a time crunch, but they’re a lot easier to take on the go! My cream eyeshadow is one of those handy dandy multipurpose products. If you enjoyed my recipes for my All-in-One Beauty Stick for Lips, Eyes & Cheeks and my Rose Scented 4-in-1 All Over Cream Beauty Stick, then you’re going to love these cream eyeshadows! You can find two awesome DIY cream eyeshadow recipes below along with some great tips on getting the most out of these homemade cosmetics.

DIY Cream Eyeshadows for Unicorn Lovers! If you love makeup as much as I do, then you're going to want to check out these DIY cream eyeshadows! Not only are they super pigmented, but they also contain eco-friendly glitter! So not only will you feel great about wearing a product you've made yourself, but you can rock out the sparkle too!

Ingredients:

.25 oz. white cosmetic beeswax
.5 oz. refined shea butter
.25 oz. refined rosehip seed oil
3 drops vitamin E oil
(plus one of the color choices below)

Mermaid Cream Eyeshadow Colorants:

.25 oz. cellini blue mica powder (or similar)
.25 oz. mermaid bio glitter

Unicorn Cream Eyeshadow Colorants:

.25 oz. party pink mica powder (or similar)
.25 oz. unicorn bio glitter

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out the beeswax and shea butter. Combine in a glass scientific beaker then heat in the microwave at 30% power until melted. Alternately you can also use a double boiler.

Next, weigh out the rosehip seed oil and stir into the melted wax and butter. Follow with a few drops of Vitamin E oil. Mix well.

Depending on which eyeshadow color you’d like to make, weigh out the mica and glitter into a separate container and mix well so that the glitter is distributed evenly throughout the mica. (I specifically chose cosmetic mica powders that were both lip and eye safe so that my DIY cream eyeshadows could also be used on lips. Don’t be afraid to switch up mica and glitter colors to create your own unique cream eyeshadow colors!)

Skip the Brush Cheek Stick

Mix the mica and bio glitter mixture into the melted wax, butter and oil using a wooden skewer or similar. As the cream eyeshadow base starts to thicken, mix again so the that the mica and glitter that have sunk to the bottom are mixed throughout the entire base. Once the eyeshadow is creamy and no longer a liquid, mix again to ensure the colorants are evenly distributed.

Now scoop or spoon your DIY cream eyeshadows into your containers of choice. I used BPA free 5 gram lip balm pots for my cream eyeshadows.

Allow the eyeshadows to finish setting up, then screw on the lids. Once I made my DIY cream eyeshadows I decorated the lids by glueing on kawaii bunny cabochons with E6000 craft glue. This is a simple and fun way to dress up your eyeshadow containers for gift giving.

After 24 hours have passed, your DIY cream eyeshadows are ready to use!

DIY Cream Eyeshadows! If you love makeup as much as I do, then you're going to want to check out these DIY cream eyeshadows! Not only are they super pigmented, but they also contain eco-friendly glitter! So not only will you feel great about wearing a product you've made yourself, but you can rock out the sparkle too!

Tips for Using Your DIY Cream Eyeshadows

You’ll find that your super pigmented cream eyeshadows allow for quicker application than powder eyeshadows, saving you time.

For best results, use a synthetic eyeshadow brush for application in order to avoid the streaking you can get when using your fingers. Follow with a complimentary powder shadow or finishing powder or even a powder highlighter to set your shadow so it doesn’t transfer.

Don’t feel confined to use your new cream eyeshadows just as an eyeshadow! These DIY cream eyeshadows can also be used as a primer for glitter as well as powder eyeshadows for a super custom look. Alternately you can also use your cream eyeshadows as smooth gel-like eyeliners, blush and even lipstick! So don’t be afraid to play with colors and looks – especially if you plan to rock your new cream eyeshadows as part of your Halloween look!

DIY Cotton Candy Cream Eyeshadows! If you love makeup as much as I do, then you're going to want to check out these DIY cream eyeshadows! Not only are they super pigmented, but they also contain eco-friendly glitter! So not only will you feel great about wearing a product you've made yourself, but you can rock out the sparkle too!

If you make my DIY cream eyeshadows, I’d love to know! So be sure to share photos of you rocking your amazing cream eyeshadows or photos of the products you made using the hashtag #soapdelishowoff on instagram.

Begin by crumpling up aluminum foil into an apple or pumpkin shape in the size you’d like your pumpkin jar topper to be.

Once you are satisfied with the basic shape, knead your polymer clay until it’s soft and pliable. Next, roll out a large circle of clay, about 1/4″ thick.

Shape the clay around the aluminum foil. Cut out sections as needed in order to remove excess clay. Blend the seams together so it’s a solid layer of clay over the foil.

Next, shape 1/4″ thick clay around the outside lid to your jar. Create a slight indentation in the clay for your pumpkin to rest in.

Leaving the clay attached to the jar lid, bake the lid and the pumpkin together in a 275°F oven for about 15 minutes on a baking sheet. Then remove from the oven and allow it to cool.

These DIY fizzing Easter egg bath truffles add a bit of fun to bathtime! The finished fizzing Easter egg bath truffles fizz and bubble and sparkle AND nourish with cocoa butter, babassu oil and yogurt powder! And, clean up is so easy! There's NO staining!

Plus, clean up is so easy! Because this recipe (made as indicated) calls for a non-staining bath bomb colorant, everything will rinse off your tub with ease! (Check out the video to see.)

These fizzing Easter egg bath truffles make a wonderful addition not only to kids’ Easter baskets, but are also great gifts for friends, family and neighbors for spring!

This particular recipe was inspired by my friend, Cathy, who loves Lush’s golden glitter egg bath bombs. While these don’t have quite that much glitter, you can easily increase the amount of both the bath bomb color powder for more color as well as the amount of skin safe glitter for some serious sparkle! Following is my recipe.

Fizzing Easter Egg Bath Truffles Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

8 oz. citric acid
16 oz. baking soda
2 oz. cocoa butter
2 oz. babassu oil
.5 oz. kaolin (white cosmetic) clay
1 oz. SLSA
.5 oz. yogurt powder
.15 oz. neon bikini blue powder
.5 oz. skin safe azure blue glitter (or similar)
.5 oz. skin safe twinkling lights glitter (or similar)
.3 oz. essential oil of choice, optional

Instructions:

I used large plastic Easter eggs for my fizzing Easter egg bath truffles. This recipe will yield seven large egg-shaped fizzing bath truffles.

How to make fizzing Easter egg bath truffles!

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the cocoa butter and babassu oil. Heat at 50% power in the microwave or in a double boiler until melted. If using a fragrance, weigh out the essential oil and stir into the wet ingredients.

How to make fizzing Easter egg bath truffles!

In a separate container, weigh out the baking soda, citric acid, kaolin clay, SLSA and yogurt powder. You will want to wear a mask for this step as the SLSA is an airborne product and it will get into your nose without a mask. Mix the dry ingredients until thoroughly combined.

Now weigh out the neon bikini blue powder and the glitters. (Feel free to mix up your own color combinations! The company I purchased my azure blue glitter from no longer had this product at the time of this post.)

How to make fizzing Easter egg bath truffles!

Mix the color and glitter into the dry ingredients until they are all a uniform blue color.

Now combine the wet and dry ingredients. Mix well.

How to make fizzing Easter egg bath truffles!

You’re now ready to make mold your fizzing Easter egg bath truffles. Pile the mixture into one half of a plastic egg.

Repeat with the other half of the egg.

How to make fizzing Easter egg bath truffles!

Now mash the two sides of the plastic egg tightly together.

If your plastic eggs are a flimsy rather than rigid plastic, take care not to press either of the halves on top of the other. Otherwise your fizzing Easter egg bath truffles will be difficult to remove from the plastic egg mold.

How to make fizzing Easter egg bath truffles!

Repeat this process until you’ve molded all seven fizzing Easter egg bath truffles.

Set the molded bath truffles aside for an hour or two in a location where they won’t be disturbed. Then carefully unmold each fizzing Easter egg bath truffle and wrap or packaged as desired for gifting.

To use these fizzing Easter egg bath truffles, simply add to warm running bath water and enjoy!

If you plan to sell your fizzing Easter egg bath truffles, you’ll need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your product. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

It is important to note that, as this product contains SLSA, it is considered a foaming detergent bath product. As such labeling requires an additional caution to be printed on the label unless it states that the product is for adult use only. This is in addition to the ingredient list and directions for use and other information required for cosmetic labeling.

You can find the requirements for cosmetic labeling regulations regarding this product on the FDA website here.
