After watching The Human Experiment documentary, I’m not gonna lie, I was a bit scared. I tried to replace that fear with educating myself about the steps that I can take in my life to try and eliminate chemicals wherever possible. I decided to move towards more natural products, whether it’s beauty products or household cleaning products. I know that the transition wont be immediate, but I’m trying to find small and easy changes that I can make immediately.
Facial wipes are practical to clean my face when I get home from work and I want to start my workout as soon as possible. When I stumbled on this recipe, I thought that it would be a good place to start changing my beauty routine that I will hopefully benefit from in the long run.
As with most things, making homemade facial wipes seemed like a daunting and complicated task. Turns out, it’s probably as easy to make then it is to go out and buy facial wipes! Seriously, it took me less than 10 minutes and the results were the same if not better because it left my skin feeling soft, and it makes me feel better that I know exactly what products I’m putting on my face! I don’t think I will ever go back to buying makeup remover wipes unless necessary (i.e. I’m traveling and forgot to bring my own).
I used the same recipe, but instead of baby soap, I used Dr. Bronner’s castile soap I’ve read that it’s a great brand for natural product, and wanted to keep my wipes as natural and organic as possible. One thing that I will mention though is that the wipes did sting my eyes a little bit if I wasn’t careful when I removed my eye makeup. Something else to consider is to make sure that your container is VERY clean. Since you will use the wipes on your face, you wont want any bacteria growing inside. I washed my glass container with boiling water and a bit of vinegar, and made sure to wash my hands before putting the cotton swabs in.
I have more recipes that I am trying out so let me know if you are interested in more DIY beauty products! If you try this recipe, make sure to tag me @SeppyforLove! Or tag me if you have recommendations for recipes that I should try.
