A Cosmetic Sorceress from the start. . .
Ever since college I’ve been mixing up lotions and potions to balance late nights with early mornings. Adding witch hazel to leave in conditioner to refresh my girls’ limp locks after evenings in smoky coffee houses, brewing black tea in rice bran oil to dot under our eyes & erase any sign that we’d stayed out way past curfew. My suitemates may have thought I was weird, but Friday nights, they all got dressed in my room so they could play with my cremes and concoctions, and Sunday evening they were right back for recovery recipes 🙂
Now as a “grownup” and I use that term ever so loosely, I still rock the late nights and early mornings. Being a type A personality, I like to be prepared for wherever the day takes me, so I formulate products that have multiple uses and combine thoughtful design features with high quality ingredients. Like flat oval lip balm tubes that fit perfectly in a pocket, or body oils that are gentle enough to use on your face (hello no-rinse makeup remover!!)
We live crazy hectic lives these days and we deserve skincare made from simple things, that can easily keep up with complex people.
A word from workshops past. .
I made a coffee and oat scrub and it’s my new favorite thing! I can’t find a coffee scrub in stores that I really love. Now I can make my own whenever I want. I follow it with the unscented Rising Phoenixx body oil. My skin feels amazing!
Me and my kids had a lot of fun and went home and did facials. The size we brought home was much bigger then i thought and we should be able to get a few facials from what we made. The class was fun and Coleen was very nice and informative.
I got drawn into a scrub workshop in my WeWork space by some friends. It was actually really fun and now when my girlfriend uses the lavender scrub I made I’m like I MADE THAT!! I’m pretty proud lol, and it was fun.
