Kassy sent me some of her super duper face firming cream and eye cream and I've been using it for a week and I can see a subtle difference in my face.

ImageThat stuff is amazing. I'm begging and pleading for her to share her secret potions with me. I'm trying to bribe her with my handmade soaps, she has a few right now, but I'll send more until I can convince her to part with the recipes.

Don't know what she puts in the creams, but she need to market them. Image

ImageImageTwo big thumbs up. Image

OMG!!

Jeeeez!....I'll send you the bloody recipe's, I have no secrets from my EDS buds... Laughing Shock Laughing

I won't be hanging a shingle out any time soon, but thanks so much for the vote of confidence.. Very Happy

Here's a thread for DIY recipes + skincare discussion, that I think you will enjoy if you haven't seen it yet...

http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewtopic.php?tid=5981

Now get busy telling me all about soap making 101, and what those amazing smells are emanating from my boudoir....


I'm going to hit the report button on this thread, because even though I'm not selling anything, I don't want zyggy's genuine + innocent post to be taken the wrong way, after past issues with DIY problems.

If the thread is still around tomorrow, (perhaps moved to the DIY Skincare section), I'll presume it's okay for any of us to post recipe's here.

It's a deal.

I'm thinking about using it on my 50+ year old breasties to see if will firm up. lol Although I think they are a lost cause.

Here is a list of the ingredients in the mystery creams: (I use approximately 1 1/2 CC's of each active in a 2oz cream or serum for the face)

Face Cream

green tea extract
grapeseed oil
wheat protein
algae extract
mushroom extract
soya lecithin (Supplement gel cap can be used)
vitamins A, (I highly recommend Retinol 1.0% from NCN or Cellbone)
vitamins C + E
hyaluronic acid
SKB
DMAE (less than 3% so no worries there, just a bit of firming)
argerilene (I prefer 5%, but up to 10% can be used)
niacinamide (if you use Olay or CVS perfecting cream as a base, that will suffice)
Matrixyl 3000

For a base any of these can be used; (After much trial and error with preservatives and emulsifiers, I've decided to take the easy way out and use the following as my bases.) This also cuts out an additional 2 or 3 formulating steps.

CVS brand Perfecting Cream (Olay knock off that's almost identical)
Juice Beauty Serums (any will do)
Base Cream (all suppliers have it)

Eye Serum

1 CC of each active will give you a nice potent 1oz eye serum.

DMAE (Just keep this at 3%)
wheat protein
argerilene
seaweed extract
cucumber extract
green tea extract
avocado oil
mushroom extract

The base is equal parts of SKB, glycerin + any base or eye cream you like. I used a juice beauty serum. (1/3rd of each for the base)


Now keep in mind that these concoctions were made for zyggy with 'firming + tightening' as her main concern... The DMAE can certainly be left out, for those who are still on the fence about that product..The other actives will still help with those issues as well.


HTH!

OMG Dr Kassy, that's one incredible list. You know, I'm going to have to get a second job for all that stuff. Crying or Very sad

Thank you for sharing.

How did you choose the ingred you used?

PS, I bet the same ingred in a fancyschmancy jar + fragrance would run about $150USD. Clever you!!

zyggy was interested in firming and tightening, so the majority of those actives tackle those issues.. The other's are complimentary to our ahem, mature skin.. Rolling Eyes

If everything were equal, I would guess you could more than triple that amount! But I doubt it would ever happen.

Nah! Once you get the staples, you'll have enough for more than a year...And be able to hook your friends up to boot.. Laughing

180.00 later, I have all my potions and extracts, and stuff on the way. So I'm thinking either I'm Igor or Frankenstein's monster to Dr. Kassy. Laughing

I'm quite excited about making my own lotion, but I have Kassy's Vit C serum recipe too.

I found my products at Lotioncrafters, Skinactives and Garden of Wisdom. First time shopping at Skinactives.

Kassy and I traded, she sent me her eye cream, face cream and recipes and I sent her enough handmade soaps to last her 6 months. Very Happy

Purely by luck.

Swap thread? Oh my, what else would I want? I bought everything, except for one of those dermarollers, and those right now are scaring me. Shock

Kassy,
Thanks so much for hooking everyone up to this. You've created a new class of chemists.

Nice of you to share.

FYI: Skinactives products - the ones already made are very nice. I have noticed the wide variety of DIY ingredients also. Very interesting! I'd probably blow it Laughing
