After using a face mask, it is highly recommended that you moisturize your face. Face creams are a nice addition to your products, whether or not you use a face mask. Light face creams can be also be a source of great bonding time with the family. When I was a little girl, I would lay down with my head in my mom’s lap and we would talk about anything that came to mind. While we talked, Mom would rub a light face cream into my cheeks and then when we were done, she would give me a great big hug. Whether it is with children, grandchildren or even a spouse, this time is special.
Any way you want to use this wonderful Light Facial Cream from our recipes section is up to you. This cream even has Hydrovance instead of Glycerin for its great long term moisturizing properties! What are we waiting for? Let’s get rolling with the cream!
Collect needed items:
Colorless Jojoba Oil
Evening Primrose Oil
Apricot Kernel Oil
MMS Aloe Extract
Vitamin E Acetate
Essential or Fragrance Oil of your choice (This is optional. I’m going to use Fruit Slices Fragrance Oil)
Small Transfer Pipette
Immersion Blender (optional)
Containers to fill with finished product
I’m also going to add 1 drop of the Purple Raspberry and 2 drops of the Lemon Yellow liquid colors from the January 12 2009 post.
380 grams Water
45 grams Colorless Jojoba Oil
20 grams Emulsifying Wax
10 grams Evening Primrose Oil
10 grams Hydrovance
7 grams Stearic Acid
5 grams Apricot Kernel Oil
5 grams Meadowfoam Oil
5 grams MMS Aloe Extract
2 grams Squalane
2 grams Vitamin E Acetate
3.75 grams Germaben II
2.5 grams Essential or Fragrance Oil (optional)
Weigh all ingredients except Germaben II and Essential or Fragrance Oil. Microwave using short bursts of time until melted or mostly melted. You can use the immersion blender to completely blend in small chunks of Stearic Acid and Emulsifying Wax. Allow to cool until not overly hot to the touch. Add the Germaben II and Essential or Fragrance Oil. Make sure everything is blended thoroughly. I like to add my color last, to check how well the mixing has progressed.
Yay! We now are finished with the cream and we need to fill our jars.
Guess what? 5 of these samples are going to be pulled aside for the Mother’s Day Gift Baskets! WOW!
