Pinteresting: Face Serem – Two Ingredients 2


O.K.  So if you know me at all, you know I am frugal (that’s a nice word for cheap), and so when I saw this, I decided to give it a try.  This is a big year for me, so I decided maybe I better start being more aware of my skin.  This only takes two ingredients, and both of them have many positive uses.

Ingredients:

Aloe Vera

Sweet Almond Oil

I used a 1 to 1 ratio.  I have very dry skin.  This worked for me.  If you have very oily skin, you may want to try 3 parts Aloe Vera to 1 part Sweet Almond Oil.  Since this is an oil, you may not want to use it as frequently if you have oily, breakout skin.  I loved it for my dry skin.

I have been using this for several weeks.  My face hasn’t broken out, and it feels soft and smooth putting it on. It does take a minute to absorb, but doesn’t leave any residue once absorbed.  No stickiness, no smell, no greasiness.  Smooth.  I think I have noticed a nicer color to my skin and felt some of my dry spots smooth out.

I don’t use it on my eyes, as it leaves an oily residue on my lashes, but I like to use it on my face and neck.  It does have a tendency to separate, so you have to shake it up or stir it regularly.

Here are some benefits of the ingredients:

Aloe Vera: moisturizes skin, treats acne, fights aging, lessens stretch marks, treats burns.  It is also supposed to decrease sun and age spots (I haven’t used it long enough for that – but am hoping!)

Sweet Almond Oil: moisturizes dry skin, rich in vitamin E, helps with dark circles, helps with stretch marks, improves texture of skin, fights aging.

Although I cannot guarantee all the above benefits are true, this worked well for me.  A Pinteresting success!  I am almost out of this batch, so up for another!  Hope you all have a beautiful day!!

Happy Monday!

P.S.  I got my aloe vera at Walmart, and my Sweet Almond Oil at Hobby Lobby.  The stuff I bought at Hobby Lobby cost me about $4 with my 40% off coupon, but now that I know I like it, I will probably buy a larger size through amazon.  I found some hereAlthough it is more total, it really is less per ounce, by a lot!  Enjoy!!
