Some days ago doing some web research I bump in to a very hyped fancy natural product that are a best seller everywhere (tough it is ridiculous overprice): the notorious Honey Mud cleansing/face mask.

I did not try the product but, looking at the ingredient, it reminded me of the time where I was using row honey as face cleanser.

Honey is a wonderful skin care product it has anti bacterial proprieties (in fact, it is used as anti acne treatment) it has also healing proprieties so it is great for sensitive-eczema prone skin. Plus it is a very gentle cleansing that make it ideal for dry skin. Combined with clays it makes the perfect face cleanser or mask, as you like!

Looking at the wonderful benefits of honey it really make you want to introduce honey in skin care routine, so why don't concoct a DIY that maight in some ways replicate the so expensive so hyped Honey Mud Cleanser?!

This is not a perfect Dupe but a very similar product that are super easy since all the ingredients are not hard to find and super fast to do.

Here the recipe of my DIY Honey Cleanser (50 ml)
  • 5 tbs of row honey
  • 1 tbs of rhassoul clay
  • 1 tbs of green clay
  • 1 tbs multani mitti clay
  • 2 tbs of aloe vera
  • 10 drops of your favourinte essential oils (I opt for tea tree, orange and grapefruit)
  • vailla extract (totally optional)
  • 1 tbs of vegetable oil (jojoba)

Mix evrything together and voilà...

Not the most flattering color but results are amazing! After 1 week of use my skin is definetely brighter and smoother.

If you want to a vegan version of this honey cleanser/mask just use agave syrup instead of honey. You can also use different clays, personally I love Rhassoul and Multani Mitti for their purifying proprieties and Green Clay because of his richness of minerals, but fell free to customize your cleanser.

Let me know if you liked it!
