This is a simple mask of 2-3 tablespoons of honey, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of sugar. (I didn't measure but that is a pretty close estimate)
I have been using L'oreal's revitalize cream cleanser for a while now.
I have really liked using Revitalift but after using it for a few weeks it seemed to stop exfoliating my skin and leaving that oh-so-soft skin. I have always heard that honey and cinnamon were good for a face mask and sugar was good for exfoliating so I just whipped up a small batch and massaged the goopy mess into my skin. I could feel the sugar scraping my dead skin cells away and I must say it felt really good. The cinnamon did not burn my skin like I had imagined it would. (If you are allergic to any of these ingredients, Please for Pete's sake don't use it!!!!) I put a little of the mixture on my lips and massaged and then gave my 19month old a kiss. (He loved it!) I left the scrub on for about 10 minutes. I was really worried about how it would rinse off, I imagined being in the bathroom for an hour trying to scrub this sweet tasting tar off of my face, but to my amazement, it rinsed right off! I wanted to rinse with warm water but it takes FOREVER for our water to heat up so I just rinsed with cold water. The results? My face was that bright red color you get after a good scrubbing and it was SO soft! About an hour later my face is glowing and it is still VERY soft. (I can't stop touching my face!) I think I will make up a larger batch and save it in a jar and use it more often... I can't stress right now how soft my face is!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
