A while back I started playing around with some new items I wanted to add to my line. I’m not a fan of lotions. I don’t like making them and not really a huge fan of using them. I think it’s more the dealing with preservatives in them (which I don’t have issues with preservatives, I know that most are perfectly safe, but I just wanted something that I could make and use for myself that didn’t have preservatives in them).
I started with a whipped body butter about a year ago. I started with a recipe the Bramble Berry shared and slowly started altering it a bit to change up some of the ingredients and just reformulating it to have more of the ingredients I loved in it.
Recently I wanted a facial cream. So I went back to the drawing board and created a couple of recipes. I’ve been testing them out and the Avocado Facial Cream I created has been a complete success. Everyone who’s tried it has loved it.
I have dry skin and this has made all the difference in the world. I put it on in the morning and evening. And I find my skin stays moisturized throughout the day (where normally I dry out by noon when I just used a lotion). It is a “butter.” It’s just oils and butters so it is a bit greasy, but it absorbs in fairly quickly and little bit goes a long way.
These are some of the feedback I got:
My skin type is dry. The first time I used the facial cream I noticed my face felt greasy. The second time I used it I used less and my face did not feel greasy. All I had to use was a very small amount. It made my face feel soft and smooth. I used it at night after washing my face and in the morning after washing my face. I have not experienced any breakouts since using the cream. And I will continue to use it, because it makes my face feel good and helps with my dry skin. – Jessica
I liked both facial creams. I used the avocado one during the day and the night time one at night :). I liked the feel of both of them. The night one I would use as soon as I got out of the shower in the evening and sometimes even with the face still a bit wet. I used both every day and still am. I have dry skin and have had no break outs from using it. – Jan
I excited to add this to my line of Bath and Body products! It doesn’t like the heat of the summer (no beeswax in it) so look for it to come sometime in Fall (probably late September).
