I may no longer have to be jealous of my little brothers awesome eyelashes... Wash an old mascara or nail polish container fill with: 1/4 of the container with castor oil, 1/2 vitamin E oil, 1/4 aloe vera gel. Mix with mascara wand apply a light layer to lashes or brows every night before bed. Castor oil thickens your lashes, aloe vera gel lengthens, vitamin E accelerates length. Give it a month for results.
Homemade Hand Cream - This stuff is awesome! I made some last winter. My go-to is usually Bath and Body Works but I sometimes need something more intensive. If you are planning to put this in bottles use a rubber spatula to scoop the cream into a Ziploc bag and then snip off a bottom corner. You can then squeeze the cream into the bottles easily!
