I have been wanting to try this honey face cleanser recipe for a while. I have tried the oil cleansing method and I do like it. Although I do like the soft skin that the oil cleansing method leaves you with I was feeling like my skin needed a little bit of deeper cleansing.
So I decided to try the honey face cleanser recipe and so far I am in love with it. That is not an exaggeration. My skin feels cleansed, yet really soft after using it.
It is super simple to make and has only three ingredients; honey, glycerin, and castile soap. It contains no water so it does not require any preservatives or chemicals or waxes. With no chemicals in this face wash, it is pure sweet goodness for your skin and meets all the requirements for an all natural skincare recipe.
The honey has cleansing antimicrobial benefits and is highly moisturizing. The small amount of castille soap gives a nice little bit of bubbles to the honey face cleanser but not so much that your face feels dry or tight after. The glycerin also helps to cleanse and moisturize through its humectant properties.
There are a lot of recipes out there I got this one from http://www.towards-sustainability.com/.

Now go wash your face, you are going to love this honey face cleanser.
***Make sure not to get water into your container, as this can introduce bacteria.
And let me know how you like it!
