Let’s get started!
DIY Makeup Remover
I have tried many different recipes for makeup removed and by far, this one if my favourite!
What you’ll need
Mix all liquid ingredients into your glass jar. Close the lid and give it a quick shake.
Place your organic cotton rounds into the jar and let liquid soak in, Depending on the thickness of your rounds, you may be able to fit more or less depending on how much liquid soaks in.
That’s it! I used 1-2 rounds on my face depending on how much makeup I am wearing. Please please PLEASE make sure you use alcohol free Witch Hazel for this recipe. It REALLY burns around your eyes if you don’t, trust me 😉
I have been using the Young Living Orange Blossom face wash for over a year and I seriously love it. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and moisturized. I place a pea sized drop on my Clarisonic Cleansing Face Brush and it’s more than enough to cleanse my whole face and neck.
I’ve also seen people use in a foaming pump bottle if you prefer a foam cleanser. I will have to try that out!
This product is currently out of stock, but if you’re interested I can contact you as soon as it’s available! Leave your contact information here.
This toner recipe leaves my skin feeling moisturized and tight (in the good way!)
What you’ll need
4 oz Glass spray bottle
2 tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 cup Witch Hazel (with alcohol)
1/2 cup Distilled water
10 drops Young Living Lemon Oil
10 drops Young Living Lavender Oil
+ One of these next oil options
10 drops Young Living Tea Tree Oil for acne prone skin
10 drops Young Living Frankincense for more moisture
5 drops Frankincense 5 Drops Tea Tree for the best of both worlds
Mix everything into your glass spray bottle. Done!
I choose to spray directly onto my face and neck following cleansing my face. You can also spray onto an organic cotton round and apply to your face that way too.
I’m not kidding when I say this combination is really the DREAM TEAM! 🙌
What you’ll need
Place 3-5 drops of argan oil + 1 drop of frankincense oil in your palm and mix together. Apply to your face and neck.
