When life gives you lemons…

1 Jul

I ran out of face wash and I couldn’t reorder so again I took matters into my own hands>>> So about a year ago a good friend of mine approached me about getting into the Mary Kay business and from there I begin using a lot of the products that I sold. One in particular was the Classic Basic face cleanser for dry skin. It was creamy and smooth and never left my skin feeling dry and stretched after using. I thought I had hit jackpot gold! The only downside to this is that when I run out of it I have to reorder if I don’t have any in stock. I’m not the best at remembering to re-up when I get low so this is how I ended up in this predicament. Being the problem solver that I naturally am, I decided to make my own facial cleanser. I mean what’s the worst that could happen right? [SCROLL DOWN] to see the results!

Ingredients include honey, coconut milk and lavender EO. The smell is very very relaxing and when you use it in the shower its like getting an aromatherapy treatment [AAAAAHHHHH]. The cleanser doesn’t lather (no surfactants here!) like many people expect a facial wash to; the Mary Kay brand didn’t lather either. My lavender cleanser is rich and creamy. It isn’t thick and solid like Mary Kay’s version; its more like very heavy whipping cream consistency. The great thing about my cleanser is that the ingredients not only cleanse and moisturize but also heals!!! I had begun to break out due to the heat (GA is hella hot), my makeup and my allergies. The Mary Kay wasn’t doing anything to improve the breakout but my cleanser did!!! I have been using it for over a week now and I see such a difference; the bumps are gone and no more red blotches! Check out the pics below.

This side of my face was red and blotchy

I broke out on my chin with a blackhead right before using the cleanser

This side of my face had bumps.

So all in all, I think that I’m sticking with my cleanser and I’ve named it “La-la-la-lavender Moisturizing Cleanse”.
