    • + Glass bowls 
      + Mason jars – Can also be used as a double boiler (make sure that no water enters your creations inside of the jar)
      + Measuring cups, wooden spoons, whisk
      + Kitchen scale – Required with recipes requiring a weight measurement, which the majority of DIY skincare recipes utilize
      + Storage containers

    • ... I didn’t just decide one day that I would start making my own skincare products + order everything I needed to make them all. I started slow, bought things as I could (I was a poor grad student living off of one income), + would order in bulk to save money! In the long run I saved a ton of money making my own products + had a ton of fun!

    • Make your own creations, make things up, do research, try weird, crazy combinations because they might just work + you might like it! Don't be afraid!

      Enjoy! Remember to always have fun! DIY beauty + skincare is tricky. You won't always get everything right on the first try -- +  that's okay! It's trial + error (well, it certainly has been for me!) You can do it!
