Thanks to Andrea at Simple Organized Living, I will be saving some dinero in my health and beauty budget! Who knew that castor oil and olive oil could be used as make up remover/face wash? Much cheaper than my Clinique! And I have oily-skin!!! For less than $3 I made a bottle of face wash that will probably last me 4-6months. This recipe can be tweaked for any skin type. This will be my first time using it so I’ll let you know if it’s money well spent! With oily skin I use a 2-3parts castor oil to 1 part olive oil…just mixed it in my old Clinique bottle! At night I use a quarter-size amount rubbed into my skin with a wash cloth, and then wet the cloth with very warm water and lay it over my face for a minute. Rinse and done! I won’t even need to repeat this in the mornings!
Variations: sunflower oil can be used instead of the olive oil. If you have dry skin, use 2-3 parts olive oil and 1 part castor oil. If you’re blessed with normal skin, use equal amounts of the ingredients.
My cousin also has a great idea on her blog to crochet her own reusable face-cleansing pads and washcloths! Check out her post here!
