Homemade face moisturizer that is not greasy.
This moisturizer is non-greasy. It is half aloe vera gel and I think that's why it goes on so smooth and is not greasy either. I based my recipe on Say Not Sweet Anne's homemade face moisturizer.
This is a really simple process. You melt the oils together and then whip them with the aloe vera gel. That's it basically. You have to finesse it a little, though, because you are mixing oil and water together which doesn't mix. :)
ALL NATURAL FACE MOISTURIZER
1/2 c. aloe vera gel (it has to be the gel - not aloe vera juice)
2 TBSP. coconut oil
2 TBSP. almond oil
1 1/2 TBSP beeswax (I used the beeswax granules which melted nicely)
I don't like scented anything but if you like you can add a few drops of any essential oil
Melt the coconut oil and beeswax in the almond oil in a double boiler. I poured this into a small bowl and let it get cool. Add the aloe vera gel) and beat for about 5 to 6 minutes on high. If you have a small blender that would be even better but since this was such a small batch, it wasn't enough to put into the blender.
It will get nice and frothy and creamy.
This is a small recipe which makes about 1 cup of moisturizing cream. It should keep for at least a few months if kept in a cool place. Since it is such a small batch you may be needing to make it more often.
(If you know you are allergic to any of these ingredients, PLEASE don't make and use this recipe.)
