Fair Ivy receives tons of submissions each week from artists and handmade businesses, looking to get their products featured as one of our monthly surprise packages. We thoroughly enjoy perusing each and every submission, and have found that over the years we’ve gotten very familiar with handmade and homemade beauty products. And now we’re hooked!
If you aren’t a subscriber to Fair Ivy’s handmade surprise packages, you still may be interested in buying or making some handmade or homemade beauty products on your own. And we’re here to help!
One of our absolute favorite creators of handmade beauty products is Mickey Cho from Fabled Soap Co. She’s been a featured artist with her gorgeous soaps on Fair Ivy both in August 2013 and October 2013, and we’re sure she’ll be showing up a ton more. However, she doesn’t just make soap and lip balm. Check out these wonderful homemade beauty products she creates:
