Hydrating Rice Face Cream

I developed a lovely, hydrating, softening moisturizer about 6 months ago that I absolutely LOVE. It always makes my skin feel like a baby’s bottom - all cushiony and smooth. I totally adore the stuff. But, then I thought, “How can I make this even better?” and I remembered I had just made some rice glycerite, so of course I had to incorporate it into the formula. I’m proud to say, it’s a hit! It’s just as lovely and moisturizing as it was before, but now it has the added little kick of being every so slightly brightening, as well! 

It’s specifically formulated for dry skin, but can also work well as a night cream or a “sleeping mask” for oilier skin types. I think you’re going to love it as much as I do! Give it a try and tell me what you think!

  1. Combine Phase A ingredients together in a heat-safe vessel. Stir and set aside.
  2. Combine Phase B ingredients together in a different heat-safe vessel.
  3. Heat both phases in a microwave in 30 second bursts until Phase B is all melted and Phase A is boiling hot. You may also use a water bath to melt/heat ingredients if you’d prefer, but make sure you’re using the appropriate vessels for a water bath.
  4. Pour Phase A into Phase B and mix using a milk frother or immersion blender (if making enough product to warrant its use). Mix for at least one minute.
  5. Stir with a silicone spatula and scrape down the sides of the container and set aside to cool.
  6. Once temperature is BELOW 122°F, add the Phase C ingredients to Phase B. Stir well to combine. You may use the milk frother if you wish, but it is not necessary. 
  7. Let product cool completely and transfer to a sterilized container with a tight-fitting lid. 

That’s it! Easy-peasy, right? You can watch me make this, as well as the rice glycerite, on our YouTube Channel @GabandDrew! Enjoy!!
