    You'll have to post your instructions as I specifically bought a hand blender for my soap making and I'm sure I've got most of the other stuff as well. Would love to make some shower gel with the soaps I've inherited somehow along the way.

    The best I've managed so far was making hand soap/shower gel with some wool fat soap....I tried a small batch of this, using 2oz soap and a quarter of the rest....

    8oz bar of soap, grated
    2 tbsps vegetable glycerin (optional)
    16 cups water (approx. 3.6L)

    I heated it up on the hob until the soap dissolved, transferred it to a pyrex mixing jug and let it sit for 8-12 hours with a fly cover over it, it turned into a very dense jelly so I blended it using the stick blender, tried it and added the same amount of glycerin again as I wanted it to be more moisturising, my OH said he can't tell the difference between this and Carex so it must be good!

    Two INs today:

    The Body Shop Mango Shower Gel 250ml
    The Body Shop Camomile Cleansing Butter 90ml


    Some treats I got for myself after my dentist appointment this morning.

    And one UU from this morning:

    SVR Sebiaclear SPF50+ Creme 50ml WDBA and will do. Love this SPF, its my favourite SPF. No white cast at all, which is what I'm looking for.

    Hi all, I have given in to Kiko sale when I was in Munich for a short break and bought 3 x pencil eyeshadows, 1 x eyeshadow palette, 1 x high pigmented compact eyeshadow and 1 x lip balm. Paid 20 Euros so not too bad..
    I also UU'ed 1 x travel size Verbana shower gel from L'occitane. I have also UU'ed Pixi Mud Glow Cleanser today. It is HG and WDBA. I have another one in the stash. I need a toner and probably will offer glow toner from Beauty Pie.

    I purchased the Aloe Vera sheet mask from Flying Tiger (I know, I know!) and it caused the worst skin reaction I have ever had. I wasn't even going to own up to it on here but then realised I ought to warn others off. It tingled so much, I thought it was just part of the process of it working but it was actually stinging and my face was so red and sore. DO NOT BUY.
    Anyway so that's an IN and a UU and a WNBA I wish I didn't have to report!

    UU: Bath & Body Works Marshmallow Cupcake hand soap. So lovely but we seemed to go through it really quickly.

    Been away camping since last weekend. Haven't had any uu's but a few things are going to be finished soon. I took a slice of soap for use as face wash in the morning and a slice of travel soap for body wash and shampoo. Makes travel toiletries so much easier.
