Craft night with friends! Learn how to make the same tinted lip balm recipes that we created for our craft night!

These tinted lip balms were a collaborative during a craft night with two of my very wonderful friends, Bambi (left) and Cathy (right.) Each are also talented in their own right. Bambi creates really cool beaded jewelry for her Etsy shop, Happy Tree Frog Studios, while Cathy cuts and colors fabulous looking hair and does some amazingly marvelous makeup. I’m hoping to have Cathy join me at some point this year making a video tutorial for using cosmetic recipes I create. Fingers crossed for that.

Frosty Toasted Marshmallow Tinted Lip Balm Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

.3 oz white cosmetic beeswax
.3 oz. dark cocoa butter wafers
.25 oz. refined coconut oil
.15 oz. sweet almond oil
3 mL chocolate mint flavor oil
1 Tablespoon bronze brown mica (or similar)
1 Tablespoon Diamond Dust mica (or similar)

Instructions:

To make these tinted lip balm recipes you’ll need a digital scale to weigh out ingredients as well as your choice of lip balm pots, tubes or tins along with a graduated plastic transfer pipette to measure out the essential oil and flavor oils. You’ll also need measuring spoons for the mica.

For each lip balm recipe, separately weigh out the beeswax and butters and combine in a double boiler. Heat until melted. Then weigh out the carrier oils and stir into the melted beeswax and butter blend. Remove from heat. (I suggest making these one at a time and not trying to do them all at once. You might drive yourself crazy otherwise.)

Using a graduated plastic transfer pipette, measure out the essential oil or flavor oil you are using  and stir into the melted wax, butter and oils.

Then, using measuring spoons, measure out the micas and whisk into the melted lip balm base.

Allow the melted lip balm to cool slightly, then mix again.

Pour your tinted lip balms into your containers of choice, one at a time, remixing the base after each pour, then set aside to cool.

Once your lip balms have fully set up you can seal the containers.

If you’re creating these tinted lip balm recipes to sell you’ll need to be sure to label your lip balms so that they meet state and federal laws. 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.

Tinted Lip Plumping Lip Balm Recipe

Ingredients:

.7 oz. sweet almond oil
.3 oz. castor oil
.2 oz. refined shea butter
.6 oz. white cosmetic beeswax
.1 oz. lanolin
1.5 mL clove bud essential oil
1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Copper Penny Mica Powder (or lip safe bronze mica)

 Instructions:

To make this tinted lip plumping lip balm recipe you’ll need a digital scale to weigh out ingredients as well as your choice of lip balm pots, tubes or tins along with a graduated plastic transfer pipette to measure out the essential oil and measuring spoons for the mica. For this project I used 1/4 oz. clear glass thick wall jars with lined black dome lids from Container & Packaging Supply.

Weigh out the beeswax and shea butter into a double boiler. Heat until melted. Then weigh out the lanolin and stir into the melted wax and butter until melted. Do the same with the sweet almond and castor oil, then remove from heat.

Using a graduated plastic transfer pipette, measure out the clove bud essential oil and stir into the melted wax, butter and oils.

Then, using measuring spoons, measure out the mica and whisk into the melted lip balm base.

Allow the melted lip balm to cool slightly, then mix again.

Pour the liquid plumping lip balm into your lip balm containers one at a time, remixing the base after each pour, then set aside to cool.

Once your lip balms have fully set up, screw on the caps and label as desired.

Like this recipe but don’t want to use clove bud essential oil? You can substitute the clove bud essential oil with another essential oil of your choice. Alternately you can add 3 mL of flavor oil.

If you don’t want to use lanolin, there’s not really a like substitute that will perform or feel exactly the same. However, you can substitute the lanolin with either shea butter or coconut oil or a heavy oil like avocado, olive or shea nut oil without having to change the amounts needed for my lip plumping lip balm recipe.

If you’re creating this tinted lip plumping lip balm recipe to sell you’ll need to be sure to label your lip balms so that they meet state and federal laws. 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.

Strawberry & Chocolate Fudge Solid Sugar Scrub Bars Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients (fudge bottom):

2.5 oz. detergent free baby buttermilk melt & pour soap base
.35 oz. dark cocoa butter wafers
3.65 oz. refined shea butter
.5 oz. avocado oil
.7 oz. sweet almond oil
.5 oz. chocolate fragrance oil, or similar
16.5 oz. granulated white sugar

Ingredients: (strawberry icing):

1.25 oz. detergent free baby buttermilk melt & pour base
2 oz. refined shea butter
.6 oz. sweet almond oil
.25 oz. strawberries & champagne fragrance oil, or similar
8.25 oz. granulated white sugar
liquid red soap colorant, to suit

Instructions:

To create my strawberry and chocolate fudge solid sugar scrub bars, you’ll begin by making the fudge bottom and using those ingredients first. You’ll need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients as well as an Ozera 6-Cavity Rectangle Silicone Soap Mold or similar.

Begin by weighing out the dark cocoa butter wafers, shea butter and soap base in the amounts called for in the ingredients for the fudge bottom. Combine in a double boiler and gently heat until melted.

If you do not have a double boiler, you can use a microwave. You’ll need to combine and melt the dark cocoa butter and shea butter first at 40-50% power until mostly melted then melt the soap base with the butters the rest of the way. You do not want to overheat your ingredients so stopping and melting the ingredients as you go is also helpful.

Once melted remove from heat.

Now weigh out the avocado and sweet almonds oils along with the fragrance oil of your choice and stir into the melted butters and soap base.

Next you’ll want to weigh out the sugar into a large Pyrex measuring cup.

Pour the sugar into the liquid mixture of oils, butters, soap and fragrance mixing as you go. Once thoroughly combined use a spatula to pour/spoon the mixture evenly into all six of the mold cavities. Flatten with the spatula. (Hint. Place your mold on a cutting board for easy transfer to another location later.)

The mixture will almost fill each cavity. This is what you want so you can build up an icing top.

While the bottom of your fudge solid sugar scrub bars are setting up, you’ll need to mix up the ingredients for the icing top!

Using a digital scale to weigh out all of the ingredients, heat and melt the shea butter and baby buttermilk soap base. Add the sweet almond oil and fragrance along with 2-4 drops of the liquid soap colorant. Then, just as you did with the fudge bottom, mix in the sugar.

Once the sugar is thoroughly combined you can begin spooning the strawberry “icing” top onto the tops of the fudge bottoms in your mold. Evenly add the mixture to the tops of all the mold cavities and then go back and spread the tops with a spatula or butter knife until the you reach your desired look.

(Hint. For a truer pink avoid using carrier oils that have a deep yellow or green tint to them if making substitutions for the sweet almond oil. You’ll also want to avoid fragrance oils with vanilla in them if you don’t want your tops to turn tan to brown over time.)

Not only do my fudge solid sugar scrub bars make great homemade gifts they're absolutely perfect for dry winter skin!

Sprinkle the tops with fine ground pink Himalayan salt and fine ground sea salt as desired. This is optional but I think it looks nice!

Now place your fudge solid sugar scrub bars in the fridge until they harden completely.

Not only do my fudge solid sugar scrub bars make great homemade gifts they're absolutely perfect for dry winter skin!

Once your strawberry and chocolate fudge solid sugar scrub bars have set up, carefully unmold them. Using a Chef’s knife, cut each scrub bar in half.

Then wrap each of the two halves in Kabnet wax – or similar grease resistant deli wrap – and tie off them off with baker’s twine. (Hint. Places like Sam’s Club sell Kabnet Wax.)

If you are making my fudge solid sugar scrub bars to sell rather than to gift or for personal use, then you’ll need to be sure to label the bottoms of these to meet state and federal laws. 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.

Natural Clay Cleansing Bar Recipes

These natural clay cleansing bar recipes are soap free and contain ingredients that are not only kind to skin but also help to prevent acne!

These natural clay cleansing bar recipes are soap free and contain ingredients that are not only kind to skin but also help to prevent acne! My friend, Bambi, joined me in creating these clay cleansing bar recipes. I formulated my recipe with bentonite clay and activated charcoal for my combination acne prone skin. Bambi created hers for normal but maturing skin. You can make both for your ever changing skin or simply make the one that best fits your skin type!

We used a Crafter’s Choice Basic Guest Round Silicone Soap Mold for our clay cleansing bars. Each recipe yields three bars. So you can double your favorite clay cleansing bar recipe to make six bars or make both recipes to fill your mold completely. Once you have your mold, you’ll also need a digital scale as well as graduated transfer pipettes if you’d like to add essential oils to your clay cleansing bars.

Ingredients:

2.3 oz. kaolin (white cosmetic) clay
2 oz. rhassoul clay
.8 oz. sea clay
.25 oz. refined shea butter
.35 oz. jojoba, argan or rosehip seed oil
.3 oz. hemp seed oil
.95 oz. Mountain Rose Herbs’ witch hazel extract

Instructions:

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the shea butter. Melt in a double boiler or at 40-50% power in the microwave in a glass Pyrex measuring cup.

Once the shea butter has melted weigh out the carrier oils and stir into the melted shea butter. If your oils are cold you may need to gently reheat the mixture until it’s liquid again.

Next, weigh out the witch hazel extract and stir into the oils.

If you are adding any essential oils, measure them out using a graduated transfer pipette and stir into the melted shea butter and oil mixture. Set aside.

In a separate glass container weigh out and combine the clays and the activated charcoal if applicable. Mix well. If you are using bentonite clay, you do not want to use metal utensils for mixing.

Once you’ve thoroughly mixed the clays, slowly mix into the melted shea butter/oil/witch hazel extract mixture. You may need to wear gloves and mix with your hands as it’s going to be very thick and almost dough like.

Once you are sure all the ingredients are thoroughly combined, press the clay cleansing bar mixture into the cavities of your mold. Each of these clay cleansing bar recipes will yield three guest sized bars.

Now set the mold aside in a safe location to allow your clay cleansing bars to fully harden.

After several days you should be able to unmold your clay cleansing bars. Gently press them out of the mold’s cavities. If they don’t seem to want to come out intact, you may need to wait a little longer. (Humidity can slow down the drying time for these.)

To use your clay cleansing bars, simply run the bar of your choice briefly under water then massage onto your face. Repeat the process as necessary until you’ve covered your entire face.

Exfoliating Microdermabrasion Scrub Recipe for Acne Prone and Combination Skin

Disclosure: Blog posts may contain affiliate links for which I receive a small commission when you make a purchase. Full disclosure can be found here.



Check out this AMAZING DIY beauty hack for making your own exfoliating microdermabrasion scrub recipe for acne prone and combination skin! It contains just TWO ingredients to save you money over expensive commercial options and it doubles as an anti-acne face mask!

Ever wanted to make your own microdermabrasion scrub recipe but without potentially skin irritating baking soda? Then you need to check out this amazing DIY beauty hack for making your own exfoliating microdermabrasion scrub recipe for acne prone and combination skin! This simple and all natural microdermabrasion scrub recipe contains just TWO ingredients to help you save money over expensive commercial options. Plus it doubles as an anti-acne face mask!

I received a sample of dr. brandt® microdermabrasion skin exfoliant in my Birchbox this past October to try. I really liked it but the retail price on this product is $79 for 2 oz. and terribly out of my price range. So I kind of nixed the idea of microdermabrasion for a while. Then, during a rather pesky routine hormone induced break out, I decided to experiment with the Rocky Mountain Essentials Tuxedo Teeth Whitener and Detoxifier that I had in my bathroom closet.

This all natural, organic teeth whitener contains only coconut shell charcoal, calcium bentonite clay, organic mint and organic orange peel. Activated charcoal, of course, is known for it's detoxifying properties and is a common ingredient in anti-acne masks along with bentonite clay so it can double as an anti-acne face mask!

This all natural, organic teeth whitener contains only coconut shell activated charcoal, calcium bentonite clay, organic mint and organic orange peel. Activated charcoal, of course, is known for it’s detoxifying properties and is a common ingredient in anti-acne masks along with bentonite clay. I figured it’d be perfect as a face mask.

So, while in the shower the other day, I put a small amount of the Tuxedo Teeth Whitener and Detoxifier in the palm of my hand and added just enough water to make a paste. Then I massaged it onto my face in a circular motion. To both my surprise and my delight the paste felt exactly like a microdermabrasion product! So not only was I able to exfoliate my skin, I was also able to leave the product on my face as a mask for 5-10 minutes to help relieve my acne break out. It was as easy as that.

If, however, you’d like something a little more substantial than water to mix with the tooth powder, you can also mix it with skin friendly anti-aging oils like jojoba, rosehip seed or argan oil. Another good option would be to mix it with soothing (cooled) chamomile tea or aloe vera juice. Then simply use once or twice a week as needed to maintain skin.

If you prefer to premix your microdermabrasion scrub, here’s a simple recipe to get you started. (If you prefer to use aloe vera juice, water, milk or even yogurt don’t pre-mix your microdermabrasion scrub as water based ingredients can lead to bacteria and mold formation.)

Exfoliating Microdermabrasion Scrub Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

.1 oz. Rocky Mountain Essentials Tuxedo Teeth Whitener + Detoxifier
.85 oz. jojoba, rosehip seed or argan oil

Instructions:

I weighed out the ingredients using a digital scale. However, you don’t have to weigh the ingredients out. If you don’t have a scale simply add a small amount of oil to the teeth whitener powder until it forms a paste. Otherwise, weigh out the ingredients and mix together. Be sure to use a non-metal utensil and bowl to mix the microdermabrasion scrub recipe as metal deactivates the properties of the bentonite clay (an ingredient in the Tuxedo teeth whitener.).

If desired, you can also mix in up to 12 drops of your favorite essential oil(s) into your microdermabrasion scrub. You can also substitute part of the carrier oil in this recipe with neem oil. In which case I’d recommend using essential oils – a lavender and tea tree essential oil combo would work great for this! – to hide the smell of the neem oil. Neem oil has been known to help to relieve acne, psoriasis, eczema, dry skin, dandruff, skin ulcers, warts, and other skin conditions when applied either directly or into soaps, lotions, and creams.

Once you’ve mixed up your face scrub, refill your empty jar of Tuxedo teeth whitener and detoxifier with the microdermabrasion scrub. Alternately you can also use a 2 oz. glass salve jar.

You’re new microdermabrasion face scrub is now ready to use!

To use your scrub, simply apply a quarter sized amount to your wet face and massage in a circular motion avoiding your eye area. If desired, leave on skin for 5-10 minutes afterward to use as a mask. Finally, rinse the scrub off completely using warm water and pat dry. Be sure to then follow with your favorite moisturizer or anti-wrinkle face serum.

Created as a dupe to the clariSEA Deep Pore Detox Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Mask, this activated charcoal detox mask recipe draws out impurities, clears up blackheads and removes excess oil for reduced breakouts and faster healing times.
