I have been trying to remake at home the famous L*sh Bubble Bars, with similar ingredients but with few additions also! 😀
I have to admit that it wasn’t too easy: it was the first time I was using sodium lauroyl sulphoacetate (SLSA – a powder surfactant, which is the main ingredient of this recipe because it is the one which makes bubbles :D) and tartaric acid… plus I had problems with getting the right procedure… but I did it! 😀
Finally ended up with a recipe which left me satisfied and so here I am sharing it with you! 😉

Then one day I decided to give a break to my skin, I stopped scrubbing crazily, I stopped attacking my skin and I started concentrating on eating more healthy food and… TADAAA it did the trick 😀 I simply found out that all my skin needed was to be treated gently.
This is how the formulation was done:
