  1. I make my own hair recovery treatment. I use coconut oil, almond oil, extra virgin olive oil and vitamin E capsules :)

  2. Yes! I’m currently learning and experimenting on how to make my own eyeshadow, actually.

    I don’t usually, but having seen the review of the Caudalie body scrub I’m going to give making a brown sugar scrub a go.

  4. Esmeralda L

    Lip Scrubs and a facial cleanser with coconut oil.

  5. I do my own facial scrub with baking soda (works perfectly) and lip scrub!

  6. Bee

    I make my own brush cleanser out of herbal oil and shampoo, if that counts.

  7. I started few years ago by making my own masks, scrubs and hair treatments. Today, I also make my own face cleanser, body wash, bubble bath products and lip balm. Working on an all natural moisturizer

  8. Geneva Dell

    I’ve made lip scubs, facial masks and body scrubs in the past. I now purchase these products.

  9. I have made my own DIY hair masks. For a while I was really into it, but got lazy and just started buying them again.

    I make my own body scrub with coconut oil, sugar, and salt and use it in the shower. Leaves my skin soft! I also use baking soda and water to gently exfoliate my face.

    A clarifying treatment for hair: Mix about a tablespoon of baking soda in your hand w/your regular shampoo; shampoo as usual. Rinse with bottle full of water mixed w/white vinegar. Then condition as usual. I do this maybe once a week; it gets rid of all the product buildup.

  11. Yup same here.. face & hair masks as well as lip scrubs

    I make a body butter type thing withcoconut oil, mango butter, and a smidge of almond or avocado oil. I usually put in a bit of vitamin E too. I melt all the solid ingredients, and let them cool half way and add in the oils. I then put them in a mixer to whip them. The texture is divine and it makes my legs feel and look amazing. It actually works a lot better than the more expensive body treatments I have tried, and I kind of enjoy the whole process. It makes a great gift too, but I am still trying to find a place to buy cute containers. I currently use the containers from old products.

    My sister makes lipsticks, eyeshadows, foundation, powders etc using mineral makeup and they’re by the far the most amazing and flattering products I own. I hope one day she has her own beauty line! :)

  14. Sara

    i make my own creams … I’ve created a hair conditioner before but didn’t continue even though it was lovely! I plan to create deodorant…. I create my own body and lip scrubs… And lots of things really, I don’t trust anything commercial except makeup because I’ve not yet had the time to learn making my own lol

  15. Amber

    Lemon and sugar facial scrub

  16. ProperIntro

    I’ve only done oil related treatments (hair/face) and scrubs! But it takes time getting ingredients and making them so I don’t do it often….

    I would like to know how to make lipstick and eyeshadow in the future, when I have time

  17. Kimberly

    Yep. I make my own toner, body butter, facial cleansing oil, eye makeup remover and makeup remover wipes, body scrub, face scrubs, hair and scalp masks. hair rinse, shampoo, and body wash. As well as my own laundry soap and household cleaners lol.

  18. Neeuqia

    I’ve made the usual mask, lip scrub and body scrub.
    I have recently made a hair sunscreen because I couldn’t any hair sunscreen during my holiday in Thailand. So, I just mixed body sunscreen, a little leave in conditioner and water in a spray bottle. It really helped keep my hair color and my hair wasn’t very damaged.

  19. Yep.
    Brushc cleanser, spray, hair and skin masques, serums, eyeshadows, lipsticks, blushes, primers, makeup removers, herbal soaks, acne treatments, etc. I love diy, because i make luxury products at a fraction of the cost.

  20. someday i hope to have the money and know-how to make my own lipsticks!!

  21. Right now I make my own dry shampoo for those days when a shower is not possible (i.e. rushing to get out the door for something important). It works shockingly well.
