No Foam Face Wash

Hello Everyone!

I tried a sample of a face wash a while back and Iย liked it so much that I decided to remake it keeping most of the ingredients. The result is an extremely delicate face wash that makes close to no foam (but still does cleanse ๐Ÿ˜‰ ).

I find this kind of formula to work great with my face cleansing brush or sponge. The consistency is quite thick, a little less than syrup, but it is absolutely not sticky: on the contrary, it has a soft, velvety and cushion-like feel ๐Ÿ˜‰ and the fact that it makes close to no foam for me is absolutely a plus!

[On a totally different note: for this formula I have finally decided to use the fragrance oil Osmanthus from Sensory Perfection and IT IS AMAZING! From the bottle it had a very strong scent and I couldn’t really understand if I liked it or not… well, now I know that I definitely do!!!]

DIY Cucumber Wasabi Deodorant

Hello Everyone!
In the future I will write a post onย how to formulate deodorants, but for today I am simply writing the formula of the last roll-on deodorant I have made.
It is NOT an antiperspirant deodorant, because I didn’t want one: I wanted a formula for an everyday use deodorant: mild, simple, yet effective.

When we sweat, some enzymes and bacteria (usually Gram-positive) decompose our sweat and this is what causes bad odour. This is particularly true of areas, like armpits, where the pH of the skin is a little less acidic than usual.
There are different ways to counter this mechanism, and here are the two ingredients I have chosen for this formula:

Pearl Sensation – Face Wash Recipe

So here is a new recipe for a face wash with a mild scrubbing effect.

Pearl Sensation Face Wash DIY

I must admit I am not a great fan of scrubs: I find that sometimes (I am talking about the commercial scrubs) they are too harsh for my skin and when I want a smooth skin I simply use a good konjac sponge which gives me good results without irritation.
HOWEVER, I found these blue jojoba “pearls” on a website and I thought it would be a great “poetic” ingredient for a face wash.
I say “poetic” because these pearls don’t really scrub that much, at least not at the concentration I use them and not in a detergent (perhaps in a face mask they would scrub more)… but they look great inย the detergent and they give it an extra texture.
Therefore these jojoba “pearls” are far from being essential but they seemed fun to me! ๐Ÿ™‚

Enough blabbering I guess! ๐Ÿ˜€

Here is THE RECIPE:

Spring Hydrating and Multivit – Face Cream

Hello there! ๐Ÿ™‚
I have here for you a new recipe for a great spring cream! I really fell in love with it!

Spring Face Cream - Itsallinmyhands

It is a spring cream, very very hydrating and with a fresh feel ๐Ÿ™‚

I have used for the first time a “new” xanthan gum, let’s say an improved version which wouldn’t make a too slimy gel, as it usually does. I have used it so few times that I don’t feel I can have a full opinion of it but all I can say at the moment is: yes, it doesn’t make a slimy gel but, at the same time, it doesn’t gel as much as the other (normal?) xanthan gum would.
So I feel I have to use it few more times to find out at which concentration I am satisfied with its gelling abilities.

No-Drandruff Shampoo DIY

Hello there!
I am back, finally, with a brand new recipe ofย aย No-Dandruff Shampoo! ๐Ÿ™‚
I wanted to try a new – to me, that is – ingredient: the SCLEROTIUM GUM! ๐Ÿ™‚
I lowered the SLES to 23% because I needed a milder shampoo, but if you suffer of dandruff I think you should rise the SLES to 30% as we normally useย it ๐Ÿ™‚

That said, here a little explanation about the ingredients of this shampoo.
The ingredients which make this shampoo a “no-dandruff” one are two: Piroctone Olamine and Salicylic Acid.

No SLES Shampoo DIY

Hello there! ๐Ÿ™‚

I am back with a new, simple recipe for a shampoo without SLES (sodium laureth sulfate).

No Sles Shampoo

Just to make it clear: I am NOT against SLES in general (HERE you find a recipe of a SLES shampoo I posted a while ago). I still believe that the best shampoos include SLES (these shampoos have the best wetting ability, the best spreading ability, they feel great, they wash great: overall they give a satisfactory experience)โ€ฆย However this ingredient is not suitable for everyone, here the reasons why:
