DIY Cosmetics with Natural Wellbeing

When I watch on YouTube how to create your own Cosmetic, I never thought that I would have the chance to learn and create mine, myself. To be honest to find the materials and ingredients here in Malaysia is not that easy to get and also it is quite expensive especially if you buy it at the craft store.

Well, recently I had my chance to create my own cosmetics through Natural Wellbeing workshop class. For RM180.00 per session you are provided with the materials, the containers and final cosmetic products created by yourself. My class session was conducted at Publika.

Our Trainer that day Ms. Angle has been in this cosmetic industry for more than 10 years. For the past 4 years shes' been using the DIY cosmetic created by herself. Now, she is not so able to wear the commercial cosmetics found in the retails. She added that some cosmetic products found in market contain some chemicals that would cause harmful toxic to our body in the long run. Well, we might not going to get it now, but maybe when we gets older. Her mission is to create DIY Cosmetic which is close to nature and also to perform wellbeing aspect in our life. These homemade products would last at least for 8 months (depending on how hygienic of the usage and preparation) as it does not contain any addictive, preservative and chemical to preserve its condition. 

The Class commence with the introduction of the materials and ingredients that will be used for the session. The formula to create the DIY Cosmetics is also was enclosed together for guidance.

Look at these Utensils. I feel like we were in a cooking class.

The utensils used need to be sterile with 70% diluted alcohol.
Of course first step is to always sterile the utensils with 70% alcohol. Alcohol is used widely by surgeon to kill germs and harmful bacteria. This also to avoid the development of fungus and thus the product can last longer.

In the class, I learnt some tips and procedures and I was so eager to be hands on on almost everything!!

Can you see how excited I was?!!! - Photo Credit: Natural Wellbeing

vi/ Eyebrows Powder

Some of the Final Products here:-

Eye Shadows
Look at these beautiful colours - its so glittering... catching ma eyes..

Lip Gloss - smells like strawberry and this is one of my favorite!
Lipstick - apparently the colour intensity is not that strong and turn out like a lip balm. 
The lipstick - final swatches

From the workshop that I attended, I noticed the benefits of creating your own Cosmetics:-

1/ It is good to know what type of ingredients and materials used in your cosmetics. Then you would know what is the purpose and benefit of each and every ingredient contain in the product.

2/ You may adjust the colour and the ingredients to create how intense and pigmented the colours you want it to be. Based on your preference.

3/ Extra knowledge about the ingredients would benefit you especially when you purchase the cosmetics products in market and you would know what the ingredients are contain in the product. It is a great method to prevent allergies (if you have any).

4/ It is a great way to create your own business (if you want to create homemade cosmetics) and become the new entrepreneur.

For the long run, creating your own cosmetic is also one of the great way to get our body close to the mother nature as the ingredient is safer and does not contain any harmful chemical to your body. If you are a beauty junkie like me, I am strongly suggest you attend this class and learn more about the DIY Cosmetics.
