Praise for Create Your Skincare
“Before I found Create Your Skincare, I was really frustrated about feeling confident in the sources I was finding during my research of handcrafted skincare products and knowing if they were reliable and factual. I wanted to be sure that the products I was making for myself were safe and would be effective. After signing up, I was excited to be able to learn about making safe, effective, natural skincare products through the use of naturally-derived, plant-based ingredients. I was also very happy to have the ability to earn a certification in an area that is near and dear to me. Once the course started, I quickly saw that I would be learning so much more than I had hoped for. I knew my dollars were well-spent. During the course I really loved the knowledge displayed by Rachael and her openness, accessibility, professionalism, and encouragement to all the students. Since the course I now have the knowledge, credentials, and confidence to take my skincare business to the next level! I’d recommend this course to anyone who’s interested in minimizing the level of chemicals used on their bodies. This course will benefit anyone, not just those who want to start or have a skincare business because we all know that what we put ON our bodies is equally as important as what we put IN our bodies!”
– Terry N. Bailey, Owner of Metamorphosis Body Essentials, LLC
“As the owner of an artisan skincare business, I am always seeking out ways to increase my knowledge of creating beautiful, safe skincare. I invested in Rachael’s class because we share the same philosophy when it comes to making products. I was NOT disappointed! Her style of teaching is fun and concise, and it was easy to comprehend and follow. The knowledge and expertise she shares make the course invaluable. I highly recommend this course for anyone looking to take their skills to the next level.”
– Jennifer Devlin, Founder and Formulator of Celtic Complexion Organic Skin Care

I was nervous that the idea of creating skincare would be too complicated. I was blown away at how easy Rachel makes it for her students to create without frustration and in a relaxed way. She lays everything out with detailed, easy to follow steps. One of my favorite things about the program is that Rachael is so hands on. Anytime there is a question posted to our Facebook group, she is right on it with a response. She truly cares about spreading the message that amazing skincare is all about learning what ingredients work for your unique skin and that you can make incredible products on your own. I feel like I have launched a spa experience right in my own home.
I can not recommend this program enough!!!! Anyone who is fed up with trying to find ways (usually with expensive treatments and products) to have beautiful skin, needs to look no further. This course has you covered!
– Abby Mason, Passionate Wellness
My main goal in starting this course was to learn how to be self-sustainable in terms of my skincare products, and I achieved that goal beyond my expectations. This course was truly amazing, and Rachael is awesome and extremely knowledgeable! I loved the idea of only having to rely on myself for all products I use in the future, eliminating toxic ingredients from my regimen, learning about natural/nontoxic substitutes, and being able to customize products to MY skin! You can’t get that at the store! Thank you so much, Rachael. 🙂
– Katie Stehura, Dancer/Choreographer, New York
I signed up for Create Your Skincare because I wanted to get professional and high quality knowledge that I could use in creating my own skincare as well as for my clients. Before Create Your Skincare, I was really frustrated because I had taken skincare formulation courses in the past, but for some reason I did not have the confidence I needed to move forward with creating custom products for myself and others. I have never trusted the DIY recipes on beauty blogs and YouTube and I did not want to be a recipe follower. I wanted to create high-end and high performing products and I wanted to learn from a real expert. Ultimately, I trusted Rachael to provide this information to me and she definitely delivered. I learned so much in this course. I would recommend this course to anyone who does not have a chemist or science background, like me. I was not intimidated by the course at all and it was not difficult to understand. I also would recommend this course for anyone who wants to move beyond duplicating recipes that are on the internet…yuck. I have gained the confidence as a professional skincare formulator that I was looking for.
– Kim Handy, Owner and Founder of GlammGirl
I benefited so much from this experience. I gained so much more confidence in my abilities as a skincare formulator and also learned to formulate many new products. I didn’t realize there were so many different ways formulate a cleanser! The support from Rachael was rather impressive. I felt supported and encouraged every step of the way. I was surprised how fast she responded to all the questions I had. There is so much valuable material in this course. I know I will keep revisiting this course again and again. Thank you again Rachael!
