    I'm making Light Facial Cream today with 5% niacinamide added to lighten age spots, cross fingers!
    It's a lovely light facial cream that feels really nice on my dry, sensitive, mature skin.
    It's a formula I tweaked based on this MMS recipe:

    I make a nice light face lotion with Olive Squalane and Argan using BTMS 25. I have used niacinamide in lotions for a long time but never noticed any difference as far as age spots. But maybe since I am not a regular user of lotions.

    I am going to make 3 samples of my oil-free lotion for my husband to try with 99% Tranexamic Acid Powder at the rate of 5%, one with 99% Kojic Acid Powder at 5%, and one with Tranexamic and Kojic split and see if any work on his legs. His lower legs have become very dark. My hubby only likes my oil-free lotion. I do think the Tranexamic Acid spray I made to use on some scaring on my legs has helped some. Not a miracle but they have lightened.

    Lovely! Especially nice for our dry alpine desert climate in Colorado.

    Fragrance: Rainbow Meadow's EO Blend (tweaked):
    1 Rose Geranium or Geranium
    1 Palmarosa
    2 Rosewood

    It is! It does well in CP and LS too. I call it "Cabrini Rose" because the first time I used it, it was for my mother who is a serious rosarian. Later I named it my "Bridge Ladies" blend because it is light, feminine, kinda herbal/rosy and un-offensive to the others in the foursome.

    One of the soaps I made for a Challenge here has Turmeric in it. Yes, it does lighten the skin! I am using it to even out the tan on my lower arms, I am all blotchy.
