Porkkanakasvovoide - Carrot face cream

Tein aikaisemmin keväällä porkkanvoidetta, joka oli aivan ihanaa. Ihastuin joskus aikoinaan myös Body Shopin porkkanakasvovoiteeseen, joten luonnollisesti tämä tuote odotti vain valmistamistaan.

I made carrot cream earlier this spring, and that was wonderful. In the past I fancied BodyShop's carrot face cream too, so naturally this product only waited to be made.

  1. Beautiful recipe, Sini! I have to make a cream soon too, carrot cream sounds like a great idea.

    1. Kirjoittaja on poistanut tämän kommentin.

    2. Thanks - but if you read Maja´s comment below, you might not think so anymore. But at least I've been satisfied with these so far, I haven't got any problems. I use my lotions and cream quite soon after making them, so that might help too.

  2. You're so brave to try fresh vegetables in the creams. However, I can't resist warning you, fresh plant materials are very hard to preserve and Optiphen is very weak on mould growing.
    So, I suggest to give away a great portion to your f&f and to keep it in the fridge until you use it up.
    Great replacement for fresh material (but still needs a strong preservative) are plants extracts.
    Hope you don't mind me saying....

    1. Of course I don't mind, I'm happy to get advises, because I'm still kind of new at this area. And it's good to know more information and experiences about ingredients I'm using, I really don't know much about Optiphen, for example. I haven't got any problems with these yet, so I'm still using them- with my own risk, of course. I've also used goth milk as liquid in my creams, and there hasn't been any problems either.

    2. One thing I forgot to add, Optiphen (or GFphen nowadays) is the only preservative available here in our two Finnish web stores. That is why I use it, and not something else. But as I said, I haven't got problems using Optiphen yet, so I guess I'll be using this bottle and think this again after that.

    3. I'm in the middle of something, but I'll send you a mail asap! We better exchange our experiences, that's blogging is for, right! Glad you got me right, I didn't mean to hurt your feelings, just to share what I know!

    4. Could you ,please, mail me on I just realized there was nowhere your e-mail address here. I'll be out of town today, so hopefully, send you a mail tonight, or tomorrow

    5. I'll e-mail you soon. I haven't publish my address yet. I think same way, blogging is for changing ideas and experiences, sometimes it seems to be only way to get help or advice for something. And of course you didn't hurt my feelings. :) It is very important to know if somebody else has different kind of experience than mine. That's the only way learn more about stuff we are using.
