PBSW Deluxe Skin Care Set for Dry and Sensitive Skin
All of your favorite Paintbox Soapworks' skin care products in one place! Be good to your face - you only get one :)
Buttercup Facial Bar & Moisturizing Facial Scrub gently clean, moisturize & exfoliate...
Poesy Complexion Mist soothes & refreshes without stripping you raw...
The Nihilist Goat Milk Cream provides deep moisture without clogging your pores!
Too often, skin care takes the slash & burn approach, over cleansing, over stripping, over scrubbing & leaving you raw, red & somehow even dryer than when you started. Get out of that cycle & start treating your face right with my trio of gentle, affordable skin care products. This listing is for four (4) full size portions of my classic skin care products, blended by hand in small batches with no SLS/SLES, parabens, propylene glycol, -cones, synthetic fragrances or shea butter (for my sensitive customers).
Are you a gentle flower with dry, delicate, perhaps not-as-young-as-you-used-to-be skin? You need facial care that soothes & moisturizes as it cleanses, & Buttercup is just the thing...My nourishing, coconut-free facial bar & Sorbetto formulas get all mixed up with face-loving organic cocoa butter & a drizzle of meadowfoam seed oil to make sure your skin is nicely moisturized, plus organic carrot juice & raw local goat milk. Finally, I add a beautiful blend of essential oils picked specifically to benefit dry & delicate skin, but that also smell absolutely amazing - light & sweet, gently fruity & floral. Buttercup is a special treat for delicate bunnies :)
If you find glycerin & dry skin soaps too drying, Buttercup is the bar for you. I've spent several months developing a coconut- & shea-free formula that lathers beautifully & is packed with nourishing goat milk, carrot juice, vegetable oils & butters. I make my hot process soap in small batches, & allow each batch to cure for 3 weeks to ensure a firm, mild bar. Each hand-cut bar measures 3x3x1 inches, & weighs approximately 5 ounces.
As always, your soap will arrive hand-wrapped, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind: Olive Oil, Organic & Sustainable Palm Oil, Water, Goat Milk, Organic Carrot Juice, Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent), Mango Seed Butter, Castor Oil, Organic Palm Kernel Oil, Avocado Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Agave Nectar, Citrus sinensis (Blood Orange) Oil, Lavandula officinalis (Lavender) Oil, Cananga odorata (Ylang Ylang) Oil, Organic Cocoa Butter, Meadowfoam Seed Oil
Moisturizing Facial Scrub is a luxuriously soft, gentle sugar & clay scrub, fortified with nourishing meadowfoam seed, rice bran, avocado & jojoba oils, rich organic cocoa butter & carrot extract. Massaged into wet skin, it emulsifies into a light, creamy lotion that gently cleanses, polishes & moisturizes, leaving you feeling deliciously soft & smelling wonderful :) I've adjusted this recipe from my usual Sorbetto formula, so you'll notice a richer texture & more gentle cleansing. A little goes a long way, & I advocate scrubbing your face no more than 2-3x a week. In between, try my Buttercup, Nihilist or Second Breakfast Hot Process bars.
I pack 5 ounces of Moisturizing Facial Scrub in a recyclable plastic jar, with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind: Sucrose (Sugar), Jojoba Oil, Organic Cocoa Butter, Rice Bran Oil, Avocado Oil, Water, Glycerin, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Organic Brown Rice Powder, Rose Clay, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sorbitol, Disodium Lauryl Sulfo-succinate, Citrus sinensis (Blood Orange) Oil, Lavandula officinalis (Lavender) Oil, Cananga odorata (Ylang Ylang) Oil, Carrot Powder, Sodium Chloride (Salt), Levulinic Acid, Potassium Sorbate
Poesy Complexion & Linen Mist - A pretty poesy for your pretty face! Sweet rose & lavender with herbaceous rose geranium to soothe & hydrate stressed winter skin... I was lucky enough to procure a trio of gorgeous hydrosols, or flower waters, from one of my favorite vendors over the holiday, & I'm sharing them! Hydrosols are the liquids leftover from the distillation of essential oils - they retain the original botanical's scent & properties, but in very mild concentrations, making them ideal for applying directly to the skin. I use my hydrosol blend every morning, misting it over my face before applying my moisturizer. This helps add a little oomf to my moisturizer, & feels so good on winter-parched skin. It's lovely, too, in the summer, as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up! You can also mist it over your sheets & lace-edged handkerchiefs, if you're feeling particularly Edwardian... "Poesy" is a lovely old word for poetry, after all. I selected a range of balancing, soothing hydrosols for this blend, those that benefit all skin types. I did aim for a blend that's particularly helpful for problematic, um, "middle-age" skin. You know, that glorious combination of acne & wrinkles that pops up in your 30s? Yeah, that nonsense :/ *Please note that Poesy contains NO PRESERVATIVES. Keep your bottle away from extreme temperatures, & use it up within 3 months of purchase.* To use, mist gently over face & neck, taking care to close your eyes & mouth. Hydrosols are very mild, but please discontinue use if you experience any irritation. And don't drink Poesy, no matter how tempting.
Poesy is blended in small batches & packaged in 2-ounce recyclable bottles with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind: Rosa damascene (Rose), Lavandula angustifolia (Lavender) & Pelargonum graveolens (Rose Geranium) Hydrosols
Goat Milk Cream is a thick & satiny formula that absorbs quickly, leaving your skin soft & delightfully scented. Heavier than my original Slip, it goes on like full-fat yoghurt, softening & hydrating for hours without leaving you greasy. Goat Milk Cream is blended in small batches & packaged in 4.4-ounce recyclable jars with all ingredients clearly labeled for your peace of mind:
Organic Aloe Leaf Juice (Aloe Barbadensis), Organic Coconut Oil (Cocos Nucifera), Emulsifying Wax (Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 60), Stearic Acid, Glycerin, Organic Jojoba Seed Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Avocado Fruit Oil, Witch Hazel Water, Phenoxyethanol, Vitamin E, Sunflower Seed Oil, Organic Neem Seed Oil, Organic Rosemary Leaf Extract, Organic Sunflower Seed Oil, Goat Milk Powder, Vitamin C Ester, Organic White Willow Bark Extract, Organic Alcohol, Tetrasodium Glutamate Diacetate
Please use all products within 3 months of opening, & discontinue use if irritation occurs.
