Oats, almond & milk Clay cleansing Bar

16 Feb

clay-cleansing-bar-2If your skin feels dry & tight after cleansing then this is the Cleansing Bar for you, it will leave your skin supple, moisturised & clean. I have been using it now for about two weeks & it is by far my favourite cleansing product EVER & that is saying something!

When I first started using it I was worried that it would be too moisturising & that I might be left with oily, greasy skin. But that has not been the case at all – my skin is hydrated, supple & smooth, if anything I feel like my skin looks clearer & cleaner!

This cleansing bar is so good for your skin because its packed full of skin goodies like hydrating cocoa butter, soothing shea butter, moisturising rice bran oil, deep cleansing kaolin clay, exfoliating almond meal, rejuvenating oats & anti-aging milk.

This is my new absolute favourite cleanser 🙂

So give it a go, your skin will Thank you for it!

Oats, almond & milk Clay cleansing Bar a’la Mama Going Natural

  • 40gm Cocoa butter
  • 20gm Shea butter
  • 30gm rice bran oil
  • 40gm Kaolin clay
  • 30gm powdered oats
  • 20gm milk powder
  • 10gm Almond Meal
  • 7 drops of Rose Geranium essential oil

First begin by powdering your oats in a blender or coffee grinder, try to make them as fine as you can or they will add a scrub like quality to your cleansing bar (but this is fine if you prefer to have a scrub-like consistency).

Measure out your cocoa butter, shea butter & rice bran oil & place them in a double boiler to gently melt on the stovetop.

While your butters are melting, measure out your clay, oats, milk powder & almond meal & place in a bowl. Once your butters have melted stir the mixture into your dry ingredients & combine well. Add your Rose Geranium essential oil & then pour your mix into your moulds. I use silicon cup cake & chocolate moulds as they make it super easy to pop your bars out once they have set in the fridge.

To Use:

Ensure that you keep your cleansing bars dry so that they don’t go off as the bars contain no preservatives. The Bars are best kept wrapped in paper in the fridge & then just slice off a small amount for each application.

Moisten face, soften your piece of bar in your fingers then gently massage into your face & rinse off with warm water. If I am wearing make up I also wipe my face down with a face cloth to ensure that all make up residue is removed.

Enjoy
