I have to admit I love lotions and potions, anything to make me look younger, prettier, brighter (…you get the picture) and can’t resist buying more than I need most times. A few years ago, I started to use organic products when I could and noticed a real difference. They do, however, tend to make my bank balance groan and I have been feeling particularly broke of late. So, following on from my success at making my own bath oil, I decided to try making something else. The only criteria was that it was easy….which is how I came to start using my own yoghurt and honey cleanser.
One of the most difficult things I actually found was finding the right recipes out there – there are so many. A lot also seem quite complicated. As I was new to this I wanted simple. I also wanted to reduce the risk of allergic reactions. In the end, I decided if I couldn’t find the ingredients in my local Sainsburys or Holland & Barrett, it wasn’t for me. The Yoghurt & Honey cleanser was, therefore, a perfect starting point. This recipe is my own but a result messing around with a number I found on Pinterest.
To make your own mix:
Use a pin to burst the vitamin e capsule and squeeze into the mixture.
The lavender oil I added as I didn’t like the smell of the cleanser otherwise and is optional.
Store the mixture in an air-tight container in the fridge. I have kept mine for a week. Some sites I have seen say to make larger quantities and to keep it for longer but I wasn’t comfortable with that.
Use about a teaspoon and massage into your face. Wipe off using a muslin cloth and warm water.
p.s. I have worked out that this costs me about 50p a week or £26 a year…not bad at all!

Interesting!!! I actually have a big tub of yogurt that needs to be used up, though I don’t have any vitamin E. Wonder if my fish oil/DHA pills would work. LOL! I’m loving these beauty posts–thanks for sharing!
It does take a little while to get your head round the idea of smearing yoghurt on your face I must admit. 😀 I bet Pinterest would have the answer on the oil…I couldn’t live without it.
What a good idea! I used to make my own beauty products a lot when I was younger, usually involving oatmeal.
I’ve been surprised by how well it works. I have a “recipe” for a oatmeal face pack but have yet to try it.
