DIY 2 Ingredient Beauty Products!

Making things from scratch can be fun and a great way to save some pennies. I made all 4 of these beauty products in one hour and none of the ingredients are crazy or exotic :P
Face mask    Hair mask  ♥  Lip Scrub  ♥  Body scrub


Lip scrub
 
♥ Vaseline or Lip balm of your choice
♥  Sugar

1 part Vaseline/ lip balm, 2 parts sugar, Place the Vaseline/ Lip balm in a cup, add the sugar, stir and place the mixture in a container and that's it! The lip balm I used was the
'Nivea Lip Tin Raspberry' it is super buttery and is this lovely blush colour.

 Hair mask

I have already done a blog post here about this hair mask. It is so easy to make and effective I couldn't leave it out!

♥ One banana 
♥  3-5 tablespoons of coconut oil (depending on your hair length/density)

Chop up and mash (I just use a fork) the banana, then melt the coconut oil in the microwave for 20 seconds- (of course make sure you're careful, as it can get hot x) mix together and apply to the mid lengths and ends of your hair, I don't put this on my roots as I find it can make my scalp greasy leave for 10-15 minutes and then wash it off to be left with shiny, soft hair. This mask also temporarily seals split ends, making you hair look healthier and tide you over to your next hair appointment. 


Face Mask

2 teaspoons of olive oil
 ♥ 1 mashed Banana

This doesn't look too great I know, but it will work wonders for your skin and all you have to do is mix the 2 ingredients together, apply to a clean, makeup-free face. Leave for 15 minuted and then rinse off to be left with soft glowing skin!  


Body Scrub 

Body lotion of your choice
♥ Sugar

This one is super simple, just mix the 2 ingredients together. I made mine 1 part lotion 2 parts sugar but this is also flexible. As you can see, I added a bow to the container to make it look cute.

It is best to use the banana products straight away as they don't contain any preservatives and will go off if left in the container for a while.

There we have it! If you wanted you could make all 4 of these and have a pamper day/ night. I hope you enjoyed this kind of post. If you tried any of these then let me know in the comments below : )
