I really love to see creative, natural, homemade versions of commercial beauty products. Not only do you end up with a product that’s safe and healthy, you almost always save money.
This is Shannon’s homemade version of the popular LUSH Aqua Marina seaweed and calamine face and body cleanser. Shannon is an expert when it comes to creating wonderful, homemade beauty products.
This recipe uses Irish Moss Flakes which is a dried seaweed that’s loaded with antioxidants and both soothes and softens skin. It’s also a traditional herbal remedy in Ireland. Another ingredient is Aloe Vera gel which also soothes skin. Shannon also uses a particular type of clay that cleanses the skin. The recipe also uses essential oils and other ingredients.
If you’re a sushi lover, you’ll notice that Shannon uses Japanese Nori to wrap the combined cleanser. She includes clear directions and excellent photographs. She also explains the best way to use the cleanser. Very creative recipe! Visit the Fresh-Picked Beauty’s Version of Aqua Marina Face & Body Cleanser link below to see the complete recipe:
