DIY face wash: Equal parts Castile soap and distilled water, 1 Tbsp almond oil, essential,oil. Update: tried this over the weekend... used jojoba and vitamin E oil instead of almond oil. Feels clean! Not soft or tight, just nice and clean. I will save the $16 that I used to spend! Update: still using after a year. (I shake before ea use)
Every winter I battle skin so dry it cracks and bleeds. A few years ago a cousin gave me homemade lotion that I hoarded. It finally ran out, which led me to this recipe. It is a bit greasy but works instantly and with dollar store ingredients cost me $5.65 to make. I can not rave enough about this one ! √
