6 Must-Try Homemade Face Masks

Ever since I decided to switch to a cruelty-free lifestyle, I've cut way back on buying beauty products. Some of the switches include using coconut oil to remove make-up, avocado oil as a nighttime moisturizer, and raw, organic honey as a face wash. And while I use a homemade honey, brown sugar, and coconut oil face scrub, I have yet to try to make my own face masks. During one of my many pinterest binges, I came across these six recipes for homemade face masks. While none of them are vegan, which is what I was really looking for, they all look like great alternatives to store-bought products.

Honey & Banana Face Mask || Orange & Oatmeal Face Mask || Edible Mud Mask
Avocado, Egg White, & Lemon Face Mask || Banana and Honey Face Mask || Turmeric Face Mask

Have you tried to make your own face mask before? If so, please share the link in the comments so that I can feature them another week!

    Oh wow facial masks – that sounds so rejuvenating and healthy! I’m also striving to use organic beauty products – might have to try these ones this weekend!

    I am totally trying your homemade honey, brown sugar, and coconut oil facial scrub – I’m all about avoiding the possibility of processed and chemically treated junk whenever possible, and making your own stuff is usually the best bet for that! I haven’t tried a homemade facial mask {I don’t use facial masks much in general}, but with the creeping of age and the recipes you’ve shared, I think this is something I need to build into my routine!

    I’ve tried the brown sugar scrub – it was delicious, but I’m not sure how rejuvenated my face felt after. I’ll have to try some of these other alternatives! x

    I have done a pumpkin and egg white face mask that work really well for hydrating my skin during the winter. Will have to check a few of these out, thanks for sharing!

    I’ve done a carrot face mask before at a friend’s suggestion but never again. I left it on my face for 10 minutes and I swear it made my face slightly orange O_O The avocado & egg white face mask seems like something I would try but then again, I would be tempted to eat the avocado before I even got started haha!

    I love homemade masks! I’ve done the banana and honey before but none of the others. Looks like I have some face masking to do! ;)

    I loooove concocting my own beauty items. I recently came up with a brilliant $5 night mask which makes my skin super soft and helps get rid of all my zit scars and discoloration.

    I just got so frustrated with spending loads of money on expensive face creams that didn’t do what they promised. That’s why I am totally in love with the DIY face creams. Awesome post Nicole!

    I’ve never tried making my own face mask, but I’m addicted to Lush’s catastrophe cosmetic and that’s got blueberries in it so might have to research something like it.

    I’ve been meaning to try a homemade face mask but never got around it. I remember seeing my Dad using egg white on his face as a face and he looks great. I should probably try that!

    Thanks for these homemade face mask ideas! Now that I’m abroad I’m often really clueless about what’s in the products I’m using, so I’m starting to take a more natural route…although it’s silly to do that now, because do I really know what’s in the products I use at home? Just because they’re in English doesn’t mean they’re natural! Anyway, I can’t wait to try some of these :) and as always, thanks for hosting! xo

    Yes! I try to be cruelty-free as much as I can. It definitely limits what brands you can buy, but luckily some really good ones (Urban Decay) are Leaping Bunny approved. Or at least it was last time I checked, really hope that hasn’t changed!

    I’ve made my own soaps but never face masks – these links are awesome! :)

    Since living next to a Body Shop I’ve switched to cruelty-free as well and they make it easy – however it costs me lots every time I walk in there! I will definitely try to make home made ones :)
