DIY Non Toxic Face Care System for Under $30

diy non toxic face care system for under 30 juicygreenmom

I now have a complete non toxic face care system that I love, and it’s under $30. Seriously. And these DIYs don’t even require melting anything, you just dump stuff into a bottle and shake. I. AM. IN. LOVE. Okay. Here are the details:

DIY Face Wash

This DIY face wash from Overthrow Martha was the first one I tried making, and I LOVED it. I tweaked it a bit to make a smaller batch at once because I find I don’t go through it very fast, and with the rose water base, it doesn’t have a super long shelf life. I also played around with the measurements and find that I like this combination the best. Here’s my mix in a guest post on the DIY Mommy.

DIY Toner

I make this super-easy toner with just 2 ingredients and also have a spray bottle I carry in my purse to use as a face refresher during the day.

DIY Face Moisturizer

This Homemade Beautifying Rosehips Moisturizer from Overthrow Martha is something I felt unsure about at first, because it’s a facial oil (and I like putting lotion on my face) – but now I’m in love. It feels so smooth and soft and I definitely notice a difference in my skin tone.

Is that fabulous or what??

Of course the best part of DIY-ing your own face care products (apart from how FRUGAL it is) – is that you can customize it to how your skin is. There are many essential oils that are wonderful for skin care, so you can test them out and switch out ones that aren’t working for you. (Note: When using essential oils for face care, you want to make sure you are using truly pure, top quality oils intended for therapeutic use. Lower quality oils that may be adulterated or cut with other ingredients can cause bad skin reactions. This is the reason I stick primarily with this┬ábrand!)

Will you try to DIY your own face care products?

  1. I may give this a try! I have extremely sensitive skin, which makes it so hard to find anything that works for me. Everything is always a gamble. It would be great to have a whole system that I could actually use! Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks Kim! What I love about these recipes is that you can customize them to your skin, so you can certainly swap out different essential oils, or carrier oils like grapeseed oil or hemp seed oil as well.

  2. I have really sensitive skin and try to stick to all natural products. These products tend to be expensive. I like that the products you laid out are natural and inexpensive. I willhave to give these DIY products a try!

  3. Before I started having babies back to back I used to create, use and make my own essential oil product blends. I loved it, and have been thinking to going back to it for a while now. This definitely make me want to. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I love using rosehip oil as a moisturiser, coconut oil as make-up removal and for facial wash I use green bean powder. Via Creative Blogger Network!
