We are on vacation!! I’m FINALLY going to see my family on the East Coast for the first time in 3 YEARS 😭😭😭. Not gonna lie, travelling still freaks me out and, after being fairly isolated for the past 19 months, I’m uncomfortable around so many people BUT the payoff will be worth it😍

💕NEW CHANCE FOR PRIZE BALLOTS IS UP IN OUR INSTAGRAM STORIES!💕

💧When I rebranded two years ago, @withthesehandsregina was so kind as to share their space for my launch party. I had different demo stations around the store, samples, snacks and a bar. The Mr. and I created this signature cocktail we call the Prairie Kiss. It featured @lmdistillery Prairie Blue Vodka and housemade vanilla pink cotton candy. (Did I go out and buy a cotton candy machine specifically for this? Maybe 🤪)

💧When our rebranding took place on August 10, 2019, our logo also changed! I adored my old logo. It was actually created long before I started making body and skincare products. I designed it for a screen printing class I was taking in 20017 and had it made into labels for my fashion designs!

💧Fun fact about the SkinWishes logo: I brainstormed with @nakedkittyco to come up with this logo! See, makers of similar things can help and support each other 🥰

💧Did you know that our silky, moisture-locking Hand Lotion now comes in two sizes?

💧We formulated this lotion using raw cocoa butter (which naturally has a mild chocolatey aroma) and no added fragrance so it’s safe to use in the workplace or if you’re sensitive to fragrance. OR, if you’re like me, and you’ve used your favorite sugar scrub and don’t want to mask that lovely scent with another!

💧Our Hand Lotion is non-greasy and leaves your skin super smooth. It’s actually a bit thicker than a traditional lotion but not quite as thick as a butter. Also, I disliked our original name “Hand Butter”…it gave me an icky feeling😖

💧Both sizes available at @withthesehandsregina & @moosejawshandmadeshop. Baby tubes available at @thejunctioncreativestudio.

A skincare routine when camping? Yes! It’s always important to take care of your skin but especially so when you’ve been out and about and sweating and getting dusty. These are my must-have camping essentials:

🏕Micellar Cleansing Water: The Mr. and I like to camp rustic-style which means there isn’t always a convenient water source close to our tent (especially in the prairies). Also, by the time bed rolls around I’ve usually spent the day hiking and just want to crawl into bed. So instead of a rinse-off, soapy cleanser, I bring Micellar Water to clean off all the dirt, sweat and grime from the day. Just pour onto a cotton pad and wipe your face clean. That’s it. No rinsing. I don’t recommend you permanently swap your rinse-off cleanser for Micellar Water but on-the-go or in a pinch, it’s perfectly ok …and better than sleeping on your dirty face🤷🏼‍♀️
🏕@lastobject Reusable Cotton Pads: These are the best, most-like-disposable-cotton-pads, reusable pads I’ve ever used. The only challenge is trying to remember to NOT toss them in the bin once you’re done! (I’ve done it🙈). These are perfect for camping because no waste!
🏕Aloe Facial Mist: Perfect for misting your skin when you’re hot, refreshing your skin mid-day, and as a toner after you cleanse.
🏕Facial Moisturizer: smooths skin and locks in moisture after you cleanse and mist.
🏕SUNSCREEN! Always important but especially so when you’re spending the majority of your day outside.

Salted Caramel By The Sea is the newest addition to our Silk Skin Dry Body Oil family. It’s like eating salted caramel ice cream by the ocean but with your nose. Ok, that’s just a terrible description😆. Sometimes my creativity doesn’t extend to writing. So I leave you with these words: salted caramel, pistachio, vanilla, yum, smooth skin🤷🏼‍♀️.

Pop in to @withthesehandsregina or the @thejunctioncreativestudio and try it out. I’d love to hear your descriptions! They have to be better than mine😜

☀️ Ittttttt’s that time of year when I remind you to DO NOT BUY HANDMADE sunscreens and bug repellents.
.
But, shouldn’t we be supporting our local makers? Well, yes, normally, and we totes appreciate when you do you🥰. But you should know that HANDMADE SUNSCREENS AND BUG REPELLENTS ARE NOT ONLY POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS, THEY ARE ACTUALLY ILLEGAL TO SELL WITHOUT THE PROPER PROFESSIONAL LAB TESTING SET OUT BY HEALTH CANADA. Yes, I just screamed that...because it is important.
.
Both products are out of the scope of soap and cosmetics and require different licensing and extreme amounts of testing. Testing which cannot be done in a home kitchen. Sunscreen is listed as a drug and bug sprays are under the category of Insecticides. BOTH legally need to meet the criteria set out by Health Canada and have P*P (pest control) or NHP/DIN numbers assigned and on the label.
.
“But I tested my handmade sunscreen on myself and my two friends and it works, so I’m good” NOPE. Handmade sunscreens might work sometimes. Sometimes they might not. Do you really want to take that chance?? Zinc Oxide, the ingredient most used as the “sunblock” in a handmade sunscreen is just that, a sun block but it would have to be applied in a super thick layer, perfectly even, for it to MAYBE work. There is really no way to know for sure without testing.
.
So PLEASE, support your local makers by buying their body butters, soaps, deodorants, and skincare products. DO NOT BUY HANDMADE SUNSCREENS AND BUG REPELLENTS.
.
TL;DR If you see a local Maker advertising or selling handmade sunscreen or insect repellant without the proper assigned NIH/DIN (drug identification number) or P*P numbers, they are more than likely unlicensed, untested and, more importantly, MAY BE UNSAFE. Please don’t take chances with your health; there are plenty of TESTED products made with natural and organic ingredients.

Our Story

Formulated for maximum hydration, the SkinWishes skincare collection is designed to leave you silky, smooth and supple. Our exfoliating Sugar Scrubs, whipped Body Butters and other decadent skin treats are made using luscious oils, creamy butters, in-house-blended fragrance profiles to grant you all your skin’s needs. 90% of our ingredients and packaging is Canadian-sourced and 100% of our products are animal-cruelty free.

Ever since she can remember, Melanie has had a love affair with “smooth”- smooth rocks, smooth hair, smooth fabrics (*swoons* for silk), smooth foods like puddings & custard and, of course, smooth skin. In 2008, Melanie started making sugar scrubs and lip balms, at first for herself, and then for friends & family. She noticed that when her skin felt incredible, SHE felt incredible and she just wanted EVERYONE to feel incredible too!​​

Melanie grew up in Miramichi, New Brunswick and now lives in Regina, Saskatchewan with her two fur babies and ever-so-supportive husband. Her collection of smooth rocks and silk fabrics still sparks joy.
