DIY Whipped Shea Body Butter

Finished DIY Whipped Shea

Although I love my Body Shop Body Butters, sometimes I feel like using something less fragrant to moisturize my body – so it won’t compete with my perfume, or because of headaches, or just because.

Shea butter is an amazing moisturizer. It’s thick and rich and leaves skin so soft and hydrated. However, natural shea butter is quite expensive, and so thick and, well, buttery that it’s difficult to spread.

So I thought I’d try out and modify a recipe I saw from ShamelessMaya and HeyFranHey on YouTube.

The Sunday Night Edit

Sunday Night Edit

This is the first week back at school after Reading Week, and it has been a whirlwind…but that was to be expected. That’s why, on Sunday night, I treated myself to as many beauty treatments as I could think of.

This special Sunday night ritual has been part of my routine for years. I remember being in high school and painting my nails at 9 o’clock on a Sunday night. It’s a way for me to take care of myself, relax, and ease myself into the coming week.
