Crème de la Crème

In case you were wondering, yes, I did in fact count memorial day as the weekend. Just finished watching some Frasier with mama. Talk about a throwback!

^What exactly is that hairstyle??

Funny 90's!

Alright, now that we've caught up, I am excited to post about my latest DIY project. Homemade cold cream face moisturizer! Why cold cream? Honestly. because I have a slight obsession. I am exposed to this product extensively, lathering my face in the cream liberally every morning, after every shower, and even to remove stingy eye makeup. So why not make my own?

-1 ounce beeswax
-6 tablespoons olive oil
-1 teaspoon borax
-4 tablespoons distilled water
-1-3 drops of an scented essential oil
-reusable container

Step 1: Heat olive oil and beeswax until wax is fully dissolved. In a separate bowl heat distilled water and borax until dissolved

Step 2: Drizzle Water/Borax mixture into Oil/Wax mixture

Step 3- Whisk until it thickens, then add in your essential oil

Step 4 - Transfer to Reusable Container and refrigerate overnight!


  1. Cold cream, thought this was about food?

  2. My comment is a week late! Is it bad for an oily person (aka CJLo) to use this type of product?
