Night Serum Day 2

Here we are on the second day! I have to say that this is the most adventuresome thing that I have done yet and I have really been enjoying it. This is my favorite day because Test 3 was my personal favorite! I like a good fluid, light lotion on my face in the summer. I increased the water, decreased Dimethicone, decreased Hydrovance, decreased Isopropyl Myristate, and decreased the Conditioning Emulsifier as compared to Test 1.

Weigh out water, Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, Hydrovance, Isopropyl Myristate, and Conditioning Emulsifier in your microwave safe container. Microwave in short burst until Conditioning Emulsifier is melted. I found that stirring with a spoon in between your 15-20 second bursts really helps the water to not get over heated and explode in the microwave. The smaller the batch you make, the shorter microwave bursts you will want with more frequent stirring. Ask me how I know! It is said in the Blog Kitchen that I’m following in Taylor’s footsteps. I promise I did clean the microwave! Blend mixture with an immersion blender well. Allow to cool. Weigh the additives into your cooled serum. Stir well and squeeze into bottles! I used the 1 oz LDPE bottles with a disk top closure because I prefer squeezing my face lotions and serums. You can also use our PET jars. Stay tuned for Day 3!

    The reduced IPM sounds wonderful in this recipe. I’ll try it soon with your awapuhi seaberry fragrance oil instead of green tea.
