I was fed up the other day with usual store brought cleanser, my skin was dull, dry, enlarged pores, it just looked really tired. So after looking on Pinterest, and a lot of diy beauty sites, I decided to try the Coconut Oil Bicarb-Soda one, due to a lot of good reviews and reports and also the amazing benefits of coconut oil. It's very simple to make and once you have mixed yourself up a batch you can use it daily or every second day like me (I'm a newbie do I'm just taking it slowly just to see how my skin reacts to it). I Also love that it only contains 2 ingredients, and no chemicals. After I used the Cleanser I didn't use a toner, as I don't like the drying effects it has on my skin, I just applied my normal moisturiser .
How To Make Cleanser
2 tablespoons Coconut oil
2 tablespoons bicarbonate Soda
Mix all ingredients together into a paste
Use in shower as you would your normal Cleanser use avoiding your eyes, wash off with water.
I hope you get the chance to try this as I was very impressed, my skin felt soft, clean, and a lot lighter and brighter. Will defiantly be making a jar for the shower and use it on my body as well, you could add some essentials oils to it as well if you wanted.
