Today I am writing this post because after consistently trying this face wash (and scrub!), I am IN LOVE. My face has never been this smooth, even, or clear! It is simple, cheap, and healthy with ONLY 3 ingredients (Only 2, for just the wash)! I have combination skin: A dry forehead, but oily everywhere else, and I am prone to acne breakouts. This scrub has not caused me to breakout at all, even with the oil!
Coconut Oil has so many advantages!
– It is Antibacterial, and Anti-Fungal.
– Natural Moisturizer.
– Reduces Wrinkles.
– It won’t change the PH balance of your face, or irritate it!
– and More!
I say, with those advantages, why not give it a try?
This face wash contains two simple Ingredients: Organic, Extra Virgin Oil, Unrefined, Coconut Oil, and Baking Soda.
The face scrub contains all of the above ingredients, plus one extra.. Sea Salt!
Simple Ingredients, Simple Directions, Effective, All-Natural, and Cheap! What is not to love?
The Coconut Oil and Baking Soda Face Wash/Scrub:
- 1/2 cup of Coconut Oil, Melted. (Please use Extra Virgin Oil, Unrefined, and Organic if Possible!)
- 2/3 cup of Baking Soda,
- 1 Teaspoon of Sea Salt (If making Scrub)
1.) Melt 1/2 Cup of Coconut Oil, pour into medium sized bowl.
2.) Pour 2/3 cup of Baking Soda into the bowl, doing 1/3 cup first, stir until completely white.
4.) Pour into a small mason jar, or baby food jar like I used, and Let it harden! It should end up looking like this:
Once it hardens, you are ready to go! It doesn’t exactly suds up like conventional face wash, but a little goes a long way! Just experiment to find out how much to use, to your liking!
(I have super sensitive skin, and this has not once made my skin super red or burn. I even tried it as a body wash on my daughter who has hyper-sensitive skin, and it worked great!)
After seeing how much Coconut Oil is in the recipe, are you a little scared to try it? Scared it will make your face oily, or break you out? In case you did not know, Oil fights Oil! When you use everyday cleaners on your face to strip oil, it signals to your body that it needs to produce more oil. Thus, making your face break out even more!
Just give it one try, it won’t hurt, and you may even like it! 🙂
If you try it, please leave a comment letting me know how you liked it, if you made any changes, etc!
