Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm

Coconut oil works well as a make-up remover and moisturiser on it own. Adding cocoa butter and essential oils both nourishes the skin and and gives your skin tone a boost.

This cleanser is good for most skin types, but particularly dry skin.

To make this you will  need:


Gently melt the cocoa butter and coconut oil in a double boiler. Remove from the heat. Pierce the vitamin E capsule and squeeze the contents to the butter/oil mix. Stir in the essential oils. Transfer to a small, lidded pot or jar and allow to cool.

To use: Gently massage a small amount into your face. Rinse with warm water.

Will keep for up to three months. In very warm weather the cleanser can get a bit soft, so you may need to keep it in the fridge.

  1. I tend to have dry skin and never remove my makeup, being able to tackle both issues at once that would be awesome.

    Have you linked up at #bloggerspotlight this week?

  5. I think that I'm going to have to try making this because I currently use a facial cleansing oil and am a total convert. It would be nice to be able to create my own. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe on #UpsyDaisyLinkup!
