Homemade face scrub

facetune_21-03-2018-18-50-46

I find it very difficult to find face scrubs that I like and most important a scrub my skin likes. I been trying out many different kinds but I usually go back to my own homemade, I find this easy scrub works really good for me. I don’t get any breakouts and my face don’t get dry which usually is my problem when exfoliating. This scrub is so easy to make and you only need two ingredients and an empty can (I usually use some small empty can I have from a moisturizing cream). This scrub I use only for my face, for my body I have another that is more gruff.

 

You need:

1 spoon coconut oil

1 spoon bicarbonate soda

Mix it all together in a clean can and start exfoliating 🙂

I hope you will try this out and it will work for you too.

Love,

SOAP & GLORY SHEET MASK

Everyone that knows me also know that I’m a real face mask junkie. I love to try out new face mask and I also love to make my own homemade mask. After years of experience I learned that my own homemade usually works best for me. I also learned that the price doesn’t have to be high for a good mask. My favorites are usually made in Korea, I think Korean people are one of the best in the world when it comes to skincare.

Anyway, when I was at the airport last time I was in London I felt my skin really needed a hydration boost (after my birthday weekend). I walked to Boots and I saw Soap & Glory, my first thought was I liked the package of these products, very retro. I look at the price and got surprised, the price wasn’t high at all so my thought was “will this really be useful?”. They had 3 for 2 so as I started to look after a face mask I read the mask was made in Korea and I thought this is worth a try. I picked 2 face mask and cleansing wipes totally I think I payed less then 15£.

On the airplane I had all three seats for myself, this was a perfect time for me to get comfortable. I removed my makeup with my new wipes and put on one of the masks… Wow, I felt how it was cooling down my face at the same time it was a burning and tickling feeling (in a good way). I think I had the mask on for 40 minutes on the description it says 15-20 minutes but the sheet mask was still so wet that I decided I wanted keep it on for longer. Best of all is when you remove the mask  you don’t have to wash it off you just let it dry.

Couple days ago I tried my second mask and it was as good as the first one. I felt I got the hydration and the glow I was looking for so I was very pleased. I will for sure buy some new products from Soap & Glow to try out next time i found them.

Here are the cleansing wipes I also bought that I like very much. Even if I only use wipes when I’m in bad hurry or Im too tired to do my nighttime skincare routine. Guess I’ve been tired often since I’m have two wipes left 😉
