  1. Wow! I always love natural skin care recipes. I already backed off using chemical-filled skin care products sold in the market since they are causing too much stress on my skin! Right now, I have been using fruits and sugar for my skin care and it works great! By the way, your recipes are awesome. I want to try those tonight. 🙂

  2. Like your blog! I find especially this post very useful; I’m a green makeup artist and I always try new home-made beauty recipes 🙂

  3. Hi! I just made the Dark Circle Night Cream and because it didn’t blend terribly well, I’m wondering if the green teas leaves should have been boiled first. Boy, I hope this isn’t a “DUH!” situation!

  4. Hi..

    Thank you for all your recipes that u have shared with us. I just wanna ask you, how long we can keep all those home made moisturizers for? and do we have to keep it in the fridge all the time?

    Thank you.

      • Hello,

        I’ve got problem on my skin esp on my face . And now I am tryig to use homemade products and I come up in this site. I think it is great. Ihave question, when using the moisturizer (olive oil,lime and milk) do I have to leave it for the night or wash it up in few minutes?

        Thank you very much
