As an esthetician, I have to opportunity to work with SO many different products. And, while there are many awesome products out there, when it comes to cleanser I don’t think it has to be expensive or fancy to be effective.
Here is the recipe for my homemade face cleanser:
- 8 ounces Dr. Bonner’s Pure Castile Liquid Soap – Baby Unscented
- 2 ounces Witch Hazel
- 30 drops Jojoba Oil
- 30 drop Rose Oil
I usually make this in a batch that’s 8-10 ounces, if you make a larger or smaller batch adjust the number of drops of essential oil accordingly.
As a side note, I have no experience with this cleanser on acne prone skin. This is the cleanser I use at home on my normal to dry skin. My husband also uses it and he is normal as well. I use it twice a day – in the morning and at night with my Clarisonic. I recommend following this cleanser with an SPF moisturizer in the morning, and a vitamin rich cream at night.
I’d be happy to answer any questions you might have!
