Considering the huge investment in Christmas presents, taxes and typical expenses we all face at the end of the year, I thought it could have been a good idea to look for a DIY dupe of the facial oil from Clarins I put in my wish list last month. 40 euros for 30 ml natural oil is in fact a little bit too much, even for a beauty addicted like me. Not to mention the fun and satisfaction you have whenever you create something with your hands. A magic potion all yours. Gorgeous! So I started sifting blogs, forums, beauty websites to find a possible recipe. Amazon provided the ingredients. An Italian forum the inspiration. And, in case you may be interested in doing yours as well, here’s for you the recipe I came up with:
Hazenut oil: 50 ml
Geranium oil: 10 drops
Camomile essential oil: 5 drops
Sage essential oil: 2 drops
Rosemary essential oil: 6 drops
If you’re wondering how to use a facial oil properly, here’s the best guide you may find online. If you don’t know Caroline Hirons already (is there anyone who doesn’t know her???) you should check her channel and blog, because she’s a skincare expert and professional facialist. Her posts about acne, anti-age, products and everything beautiful are all really funny and useful. I think this tutorial is awesome: fast, clear, straightforward, no bla bla bla, tips, sense of humor, professionality. Enjoy!
