Homemade Peppermint Face Wash | Happy Money Saver

Facewash… one of those necessary items around the house that can cost a fortune! I don’t know about you but every time I go shop for face products, I just get overwhelmed by all the choices and high prices and end up walking away. Why do I want to spend $30 and up for face washes full of chemicals that make giant claims to make me look younger?

So…. since I’m kind of an essential oils all-natural kind of gal, I thought… duh…. make your own!

Making your own is SO easy and you actually know what (and can pronounce) all the ingredients, PLUS… you can customize your scent to your liking.

I actually make it in a variety of scents.. my all time fav being peppermint because it’s so rejuvenating and brightens up your morning. Lavender is amazing to use for your night time wash because of its soothing properties. Lemon, orange, rose… the list goes on. You can even make some for your manly man using a more masculine scent!

  1. Oh wow! That looks really great. I’ve gotten really into making my own scrubs and the like, so I can’t wait to add this to my list. Thanks!

  2. I rarely can find a good face wash that doesn’t dry my face or make it feel oily so I am going to try this one. Who would think a DIY could be better than all those expensive face products.

  3. Now this is a nice idea. It might be fun to make some of this with my daughter some day so we can both keep some containers.

  4. Pam Wattenbarger says:

    I love using essential oils but I have never made my own face wash with them. This is cool!

  5. That you for sharing. I may need to try this for my daughter.

  6. I am all about making my own beauty products. I bet the addition of the coconut oil is a great way to lock in moisture while getting the face clean as well! Love a double duty product like this!

  7. Annemarie Leblanc says:

    What a way to go all natural! I love this DIY face wash. I would assume it will make my face nice, smooth and refreshed!

  9. This seems very easy to make and quite economical I’m sure. Thanks for sharing your wonderful tutorial!

  10. I love homemade beauty products! This is a great one to try!

  11. This is awesome! I have pretty much all of these ingredients at home right now and I would have never thought to do this! Thank you so much for sharing!!

  12. What a really great idea! I would love to make my own face wash. I love the idea of knowing exactly whats in what is going on my face and being able to do it myself!

  13. You had me at coconut oil and peppermint! So refreshing and much cheaper when you create your very own.

  14. What a great way to be able to control the ingredients that go into your face wash. Very healthy alternative

  15. That’s a nice looking face wash. My daughter loves to make things like this with coconut oil. She would love this.

  16. I love this idea of homemade face wash! You are so creative! Way to go girl!
