I’m not one of those girls that spends a lot of time in front of the mirror. I did when I was in high school but then I figured out that sleeping in was a better use of time and made me look better in the long run. These day I rarely wear makeup, only for special occasions, and my facial routine consists of quickly washing my face and putting on cream. Then I came across Do It Gorgeously: How to Make Less Toxic, Less Expensive, and More Beautiful Products and now I want to make my own beauty products. I know, I barely use beauty products, but doesn’t it sound fun?
The book actually covers a range of topics: beauty products, baby, frugality, in the kitchen, fashion, gardening… But the book had me at beauty products. The recipes in the book are “natural”, meaning the ingredients are not synthetic, artificial, don’t contain petrochemicals, are grown/raised/harvested/processed in an ecological manner and have no chemical preservatives (as per her book).
