Anti Wrinkle Face Cream

You wouldn't believe how easy it is to make your own beauty products. I picked up this book in the library and had to buy a copy. I made this delicious anti-wrinkle face cream and really love the way it just soaks into my skin leaving it feeling soft and supple. I got the recipe from the The Complete Idiot's Guide to Making Natural Beauty Products by Sally W. Trew and Zonella B. Gould, and the supplies from Lotion Crafter a great online supply source for making your own beauty products.

I bought the essence oil, tangerine, from our local grocery store. Several of our area grocery stores are of the kind that cater to health foods with lots of organic, natural foods and health products. If you have ever been to Ashland Oregon, you would understand.

I have been using the lotion for several weeks now and am really impressed on how wrinkle free my skin looks,  it make my skin feel and look healthier, soft and supple. My skin is sensitive to harsher creams and I do not like oily or sticky substance on my face, that's why this is such a sweet deal.

Animal free testing, daughters freely tested. If you have ever tested out anything on your friends or family would love to hear about it.


  1. Thanks for sharing this Victoria! I love home remedies, and use quite a bit with the house, but never thought of my face. I showered, and need to get lotion on it as it feels dry right now, but this looks promising what you have shared too.

    Thanks again, and have a sweet day!:)

  4. Thanks for the kind comments!, No I am not an expert in making beauty products, I just knew I wanted something other than what I can buy off the self. I came across book somewhere and decided to give the recipe a try. I have been using it faithfully now for five months and I do feel it has very beneficial properties for my skin. Your tweet are funny, loved reading through them ;)
