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 never made my own face mask but these sound great!

  • I keep saying I am going to try an at home mask, but never do! Must try at least one this weekend!

  • 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

  • Honey and banana…. YUM!

  • Tina

    I am definitely due for a home spa eve! These DIY’s sound fabulous! Thank you for hosting this lovely link up! T.

  • 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 :)
