Formulate Your Own Skincare Class

Learn how to make organic skin care products



2 hours Class size 1 to 24 (public classes), 12 to 60 label $80


If you’ve ever been overwhelmed by choice in the skincare aisle (and let’s face it, who hasn’t) this Sydney workshop is for you.

Channel your inner mad scientist (lab coats optional) as you stir, swirl and mix your very own facial serum, a delectable body or massage oil and a hard-working makeup remover- all tailored to your personal tastes and skin types.

Along the way, Helen from Be Fraiche Skincare will be imparting her expert wisdom- teaching you how to understand the usage of carrier oils in skincare, the ins and outs of creating your own formula and how to manage the use of essential oils.

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get
  • Knowledge and motivation to create your own facial serum and body oils to suit your skin types
  •  Your very own formulas
  •  Three products made by you: a facial serum, a body oil bottle and a makeup remover
  •  A workbook with instructions and methods to take home!
  •  A sample from Be Fraîche skincare range

What to bring
  • A pen to take notes
  • Your inner mad scientist!

Suitable for

This class is perfect for beginners - no prior experience is needed.

This class is a great indoor activity idea for individuals and couples as well as for a birthday or hens party.

This would also be a lovely gift for her or gift for mum.

Easy to get to venue via public transport and the class was just the right duration. The teacher has a wealth of knowledge. I had fun and learnt basics around the use of hydrosols, essential oils and anti oxidants. I would recommend this class to anyone keen for a creative outlet or looking to understand their personal body care products a bit more, and to either continue to make these at home.

Katie Bartolillo Jul 2020


This is a great starter course on natural skin care. The class is very informative, fun and great value for money. The teacher Helen is so lovely, I’ll definitely try out her full day course next.

Camille Smith Jul 2020
