Rose Clay Oil Cleanser/Mask

I'm all about oil cleansing as most of you probably know.  I love experimenting with different oil cleansers so once I discovered the gentle, detoxing benefits of rose clay, I knew I had to incorporate it into a new oil cleanser.  This oil cleanser is geared more towards aging, dry skin types rather then THIS ONE for oily skin.  This recipe does not contain soap therefore, it does not dry your skin or mess with your pH.  It is very easy to make and since it contains clay, it can actually pull … [Read more...]

DIY Beard Serum

This DIY is for the men today-or the ladies that want to clean up their man's products! ;)!  You're probably wondering why do a DIY for a small percentage of men but seriously-so many men are sporting beards lately.  They're everywhere!  This DIY is definitely multi-purposed though.  This might be one of those Swiss Army Knife products! What's the purpose of a beard serum, you might ask?  A beard serum's purpose is to condition the course hair of a beard.  It's also good for nourishing the … [Read more...]

DIY Clay & Tamanu Oil Cleanser…

I realize I tend to focus many of my DIYs around anti aging solutions.  It's been many years since I've dealt with acne prone skin.  It's also been years since I've dealt with oily skin.  I usually base my DIYs on how the product works for me so I don't feel very qualified to share recipes that I "think" will work for oilier and problematic skin types.  But-I've had some extra clogging lately and had an idea.  Since I swear by The Oil Cleansing Method, and a lot of you are very apprehensive to … [Read more...]

Trouble Shooting the Oil Cleansing Method

A few months ago I wrote a post about the oil cleansing method. I had been using the method for about a month at the time and was absolutely in love with it. After a couple more months I started noticing that my skin was clogging.  Now, the problem with my skin is that it easily gets clogged, pair that with having a blog where I am creating and trying out many products and I never know what caused the clogs!  I am pretty sure my skin does not like almond oil and that was what was in my mineral … [Read more...]

Dry Skin Moisturizer with Shea Butter

I've been making face cream for my mother for a while now, but my "experiments" are never moisturizing enough for her skin.  She gets dry patches on her cheeks and getting a cream that addresses that issue has not been easy.  I have made over 10 different formulations trying to get something that works for her!  I finally did it-I found a concoction that is nourishing and thick enough but not greasy!  With winter coming, we all get a little drier.  With heaters in our homes and cars skin is … [Read more...]

DIY Organic Cleanser Recipe-for Oily Skin.

I started making my own skin care because I wanted to stop using chemicals on my skin.  For most of my career in the skin care industry I used Dermalogica.  I loved this line of skin care.  They had beautifully smelling products with great results.  They claimed to be "all natural" which was good enough for me.  After doing research on all the harmful ingredients that are in skin care I started looking at the never ending ingredient list on the back of my beloved Dermalogica products.  Propylene … [Read more...]
