DIY Beauty Recipes Too Easy Not To Try!

I’ve always been into organic and mostly natural products.  When my husband and I were first married, he used to look at me funny when I insisted that I could make my own cleaner with water, essential oil and a little dish soap.  He’s more of a believer now, but it’s taken some time. I wanted to share a few beauty diy’s that will keep you looking fresh faced and youthful! Let’s get into it!

Jeni & Teri over at Spoon Fork Bacon deliver the ultimate homemade balm with their DIY Lip Gloss. The moisturizing cocktail of avocado oil, shea butter, coconut oil and sweet almond oil will have your lips feeling and looking perfectly kissable. Head over to their blog to get the deets!

Here at Pink Balloons For Lunch, I created this great smelling  Cherry Lip Scrub to pair with your lip gloss. A great exfoliator makes your lip gloss look that much better when applied. Honey and cherry combine to make a scrub that is definitely sweet enough to eat, although I wouldn’t advise it.

My very talented copywriter friend Vanessa bought me the Hello Glow book as a gift this past Christmas. I was so excited to receive it because it has so many amazing diy’s.  It’s chock full of organic recipes that address all your beauty concerns. This Vitamin C Cranberry Face Mask will leave your skin feeling moisturized and toned. Fresh cranberries, organic maple syrup and yogurt are all you need to make this creamy and indulgent face mask.

Kristin over at Live Simply combines ultra moisturizing aloe vera, honey and olive oil for her Homemade Honey & Aloe Facial Cleanser. She says to leave the cleanser on for a minute to allow your skin to absorb all the goodness!

This Whipped Grapefruit Mint Sugar Scrub from Kaylee at The Kitchen McCabe has all organic ingredients like grapefruit juice, coconut oil and white sugar for a refreshing scrub that’s sure to awaken your senses! I love grapefruit, so this is no-brainer for me.

Do you have any diy’s that you use consistently? I’d love to hear from you. I know that I can’t live without my olive and coconut oil because they can be used for everything from cooking to beauty!



  • I’m loving this post because I have recently decided to star making my own essential oil blends and beauty products. I pretty much have every one of these ingredients so I need to get started asap!

  • YES! Love this article. I have been using EO’s for at least the last 20 years or more for everything from beauty and skin care to cleaning, cooking, you name it yes, even MEDICINE. My hubby was a doubter but now lol when he is not feeling well he asks “sweetie can you make me some medicine” 🙂

  • I have made my own hand and body scrub. It turned out very nice. I used it for a long time. I’m not very craft and into diy projects, so it is still the only one I have I tried. Though these sound pretty darn easy. Even for me.

    Ive made a few DIY scrubs as well but I will love to try these out.

  • These are awesome ideas! I knew that you could make scrubs, but I had no idea that you could make other things so easily. I bet my daughter would love it if I made lip gloss!

  • Theresa Beauteeful Living

    The only DIY’s I make are decor-related. These beauty recipes look amazing. So professional looking! That cherry lip scrub looks wonderful!

  • cvantassel

    These sound amazing! I really think I like the grapefruit scrub but the other recipes seem super easy and definitely need to be whipped up and tried!

    I’m always looking for anything I can make at home. I live in the middle of nowhere. When I go in to shop it takes forever and half of the time they don’t have everything.

  • These all look so fun to make and awesome to try. I love the lip scrub. I am always looking for a way to help with dry chapped lips…
