Raspberry Mint Body Custard

If you’re looking for a glossy, slippy, richly hydrating body lotion sort of thing for summer, I think this pretty pink Raspberry Mint Body Custard might just be it. This formulation is unlike emulsion I’ve ever made, with a consistency that puts me in mind of rich custard with a hint of taffy-like plasticity that’s rather fascinating. It stars lightweight raspberry seed oil, hydrating sodium lactate, and an all-natural palm-free emulsifier; I hope you find it as delightful and intriguing as I do!

Extra Creamy Green Clay Cleansing Balm

This Extra Creamy Green Clay Cleansing Balm is a Bee Better version of 2017’s Forest Cleansing Balm. That formula was one of the first anhydrous formulas I made with fatty thickeners and I remember being absolutely blown away by its rich, creamy, slippy consistency and incredibly easy rinse-off. I wasn’t the only one! Over the years I’ve heard from many people that my Forest Cleansing Balm is their favourite cleansing balm formulation 💚 Because the original was already pretty darn lovely, this updated version isn’t super different, but it’s definitely more polished. Keep reading to learn what I levelled up 😄

Whipped Cupuaçu Passionfruit Body Butter

It’s been positively ages since I made a whipped body butter—since late 2020! This one was inspired by some gifted ingredients from Lavida Oils; their cupuaçu butter is utterly lovely and has re-ignited my long-standing love for this uniquely lovely butter. Cupuaçu butter is rich and smooth, but I don’t find it to be particularly greasy. It leaves my skin feeling soft and nourished, with a rather novel silicone-like finish. I immediately wanted to combine it with the oils from Lavida to create a beautiful tropical-inspired body butter, and that’s what we are doing today!
