Why Buy Skincare Products When You Can Make Them?

Over the last few months, my interest in natural skincare took me into the wonderful world of cold process soap making; and I’ve been enjoying it so much, that the only homemade products I’ve attempted since cleansing grains are a lotion bar that needs tweaking, baking soda-free deodorant that doesn’t work (I’m back to using milk of magnesia) and a failed attempt at homemade toothpaste (ew). Well I have the DIY bug again, and it won’t be long before I start running out of other products that I could make myself. Which is why I’ve reached out to some of the internet’s best DIY bloggers for a little inspiration.
