In the lab

Mad lab science time:  Banana Cream Clay Mask and Watermelon Lift Clay Mask.  Yep, I am on  a food kick when it comes to these masks.  But they will be very beneficial.  The Banana Cream will be good for dry skin and the Watermelon Lift should act as a skin tightener or mini face lift.  I plan on making the Carrot Cake batch this weekend (promised 2 people so now I have to do it), I might even decide to sell a face mask sampler for people to try out these little goodies.

I think I have a name for the mango and castor hair dressing- Mango Tropic, yes? no? keep working at it?

Scrapping the Avocado and Honey Hair conditioner (didn't sell well anyway) and turning it into a hair mask.  Don't know when that will happen but I will get it done.

Lord only knows

My next task:  create a facial cleanser and moisturizer for mature skin.  So my mother has been spreading the word around that her daughter makes some pretty good stuff.  Well the word got to the first lady of the church. (just an aside why do they say the first lady, like they expect it to be a second?)  In any case I gave Mrs. M a call today which I should not have done.  I had to work more hours this week and I know I sounded like a blithering idiot because I could not focus enough to tell her what I would like to do.  Besides all I remember from the conversation is that she has dry skin and she like aloe vera.  Guess I will go off of that. 

So I'm like thinking what would be could enough for the woman who sleeps next to the man that talks directly to GOD?   I have some research to do before I can even consider formulating.  And what would I even call it?  You guys know I am terrible with names. 

BTW, I still have to make the labels for Queen Bee, I've just been so busy lately and because of that I have been tired.  So even when I do get a moment, I rather sleep.  Thank God vacation happens in one more week.  Lord knows I need it.

Vanilla Bean Clay Facial

Hi guys, here is a clip about the Vanilla Bean Clay Facial I mentioned in a previous post.  My next facial/ mask will be called Carrot Cake and will be geared towards dry and mature skin.  It too will be a dry mask and will include carrot and walnut oil.  Based on the carrot oil, I expect it to be a little more costly than Vanilla Bean but I am sure it will be worth it.

BTW, the first try at Suga Foot wasn't as scrubbie as I would like.  It's kinda hard to mix in the sugar at the temperature I need to keep the soap liquid.  I will keep trying since I like the idea so much.  That and the fact I promised my husband a foot scrub some time ago.

Daily Face Lift

Here is a tip for younger looking skin, a daily face lift.  Whenever you apply product to your face follow these basic steps:

1.  Place a small amount of product (pea size is great in general, thicker products may require a little less) on your  middle and ring fingers of one hand.  These are weakest of the fingers and will put less stress on the skin.

2.  Distribute the product between both sets of middle and ring fingers.  This helps to extend your product and you will find that you use a lot less of the product.

3.  Apply to your face in an upward circular motion.  The circular motion encourages blood flow to the area while the upward motion helps to keep the skin from sagging. (start with the green arrow)

I learn this technique as a teenager and have been following this simple routine ever since.  I always get compliments on my skin and even after grad school, marriage, work and 2 kids I still maintain a youthful appearance.

The technique does not reverse the aging process but will definitely slow it down!

Suga Foot

Ok, yes I am working.  I know I have a problem but I had a brand new idea.  I want to create little feet scrubbers.  I know sounds kind of weird, why don't I make just a plain ol' foot scrub.  Now when have you guys known me to be plain?  I think it would be cute, miniature one time use scrubbers to help soften the feet.  I probably can come up with several different scents like peppermint or tea tree/ manuka for athlete's feet.  The lotion can have matching scents or people can mix and match.  Ok, so I have to start doing some research and get this thing started.  Wish me luck guys.

Happy Mother's Day

Berry Juice

Okay, so I have gotten really busy and I have few orders to fill.  I even got an order from Japan.  I am so international.  I am having trouble with USPS and my shipments.  Can someone please tell me, how you can lose a package that is going from Philly to New York?  Messing with my money is like messing with my money. 

I uploaded another video, I am going to get better.  I just haven't figured out all the little techniques that make what I do stand out.  I will get there, believe you and me, I will get there.

carrot shampoo bar


It's just me and the baby, so you would think I would be busy in the lab.  Not me, I think I like the pressure of it all. I mean who could think in a noisy house with a husband, 3 year old and a baby.  Apparently me.  I can't seem to get myself together and it's actually quiet enough for me to do alot of stuff.  Oh well.  I am planning on uploading a video about my latest listing :Restoration Hair Repair.  So I will fill you in on that one later.  I also need a name for my Castor oil and mango butter hair dressing.  Island Spice?  Mango Spice?  Mango Green Tea?  I don't have a clue at this point.  I would like to get it on the market but no name.  I also need to finish labels for the diaper ointment that I have been promising for weeks to list. 

Did I mention, I never got started on the apple beer shampoo?  I know it sounds funny, but I am nervous about buying beer.  I don't drink so I guess that plays a major part of it.  I have been trying to get my husband to make the purchase but he is so stubborn.  I will do it though, I have made a promise and so now I must.  Time to get moving.
