Peach and Rose Face Cleanser is a recipe that has been proven to cleanse, moisturize, and soothe the skin. It’s an easy way to make your own face cleanser without spending a lot of money on store-bought products. In this blog post, I will walk you through how to make homemade face cleanser using ingredients from your pantry!

What ingredients do you need to make a homemade face cleanser

One of the best parts about this homemade face cleanser is how simple it is to make. You’ll only need a few ingredients that you can find in your pantry, like oats, honey, and lemon juice!


  • oats
  • honey
  • lemon juice (or other fruit juices)

Directions: -Mix oats with water until they are liquefied. Add one tablespoon of honey to every half cup of oat mixture. Strain out the liquid from the solid using cheesecloth or take kind an old blender container and strain through that.

Squeeze fresh lemons into the bowl containing liquid and stir well, Add enough warm water to bring the mixture up to two cups total volume. Stir together for a few minutes.

The mixture should be the consistency of cream. Pour into an old, clean container and rinse thoroughly with hot water

To use: Apply to wet face when you are ready for cleansing, then wash off with plain warm water.

Recipe Notes:

If you don’t want to make your own cleanser just yet how about trying these products? I love this one from Nature’s Gate or this one by Kiss My Face. They’re great alternatives if you’re not feeling too DIY-minded!

This is how easy it is to make homemade face cleansers that can last up to six months before going bad in your bathroom cabinet. It will give freshness every morning while saving money on all those expensive store-bought versions!

And how do you make this? All you need is one cup of distilled water, half a teaspoon of honey, and two tablespoons of olive oil. Mix them all together in a clean container before storing them away in your bathroom cabinet for later use!

How to mix the ingredients together

The ingredients are mixed together by taking the following measurements: One cup of distilled water (preferably filtered), half a teaspoon of honey, and two tablespoons or more of olive oil; combine these three ingredients into an airtight jar with a lid for storage.

How do you use it?

Just take your desired amount in the palm of your hand before rubbing all over your wet skin (it’s important that it be wet). Then gently massage by circling around on the surface so as to avoid pulling at the facial hairline and clothing areas. Rinse well with warm water after removing most makeup residue!

Why is it better than store-bought products?

Homemade face cleansers are organic and harsh chemical-free, and they’re also much cheaper than store-bought products. So, I would recommend you to make your own cleanser with natural ingredients which are 100 times better than store-bought products.

Pros and cons of making your own face cleanser

Everything has two sides of the character, So here I am mentioning the pros and cons of using your own face cleanser!

– it is organic and chemical-free;
– cheaper than store-bought products.
– not as convenient to carry around in a purse or bag, but still easy enough with how small these are made! (they’re smaller than lip balm)

Recipes for different skin types e.g oily, dry, combination)

Oily Skin

If you have oily skin, then you can use these ingredients to make your facial cleanser:

– honey  (a natural moisturizer and skin soother)

– apple cider vinegar (great for balancing pH levels of the face!)

Dry Skin

If you have dry skin, then these are your ingredients:

– olive oil (hydrates the skin without clogging pores or leaving a residue behind) – tea tree essential oil (will help kill bacteria on oily/acne-prone areas while also balancing out sebum production)

Combination skin

If you have a combination skin type, here is how to make it:

– almond milk powder + water in equal parts. This will leave a little bit more of an oily feel but great if you’re looking for something that’s less drying than oatmeal! It’ll really depend on how oily your skin is how much you add.

– jojoba oil (this one is great for all skin types)

Acne Problem

If you have an acne problem, here are the ingredients:

Grape seed oil and tea tree essential oil in equal parts (both of these will serve as a powerful anti-inflammatory to help reduce inflammation on the face). I’m also going to include lavender because it’s antibacterial!

All types of skin

This way, no matter what type of skin condition you’re dealing with, we’ve got something that’ll work out just fine.

You can use any jar or container that has a wide mouth so it’s easier for applying and mixing everything together inside too. However, if there are absolutely no containers around then don’t worry; you can also use a jar with a narrow mouth, just make sure that the opening is wide enough for your hand to fit in.

I’ll be using an empty container of Vaseline as my mixing dish so I’m going to have everything at arm’s reach and ready to go when it comes time to start stirring things up!

What happens if you never

The first thing I do now adds grape seed oil and tea tree essential oils directly into the container from where we’re going to stir things around later on – but how much?

Well, since this recipe will work for all skin types (even sensitive) here are some suggestions: A tablespoon or two of each should suffice if you want something light yet powerful. But if not then feel free to add more.

I’ll also be adding a teaspoon of castile soap, which will help break up the oil in order to emulsify it and make it easier for our skin cells to absorb! I might have been tempted at first to use something harsher like dishwashing liquid but how much can you trust what’s really inside that? And many commercial products contain parabens, synthetic colors, or even formaldehyde – not good stuff for your face by any means whatsoever.

And finally, we’re going to need some water as well – again how much is entirely up to you. Some people prefer their cleansers quite thin while others love them on the thicker side so if this sounds like you then take about half an inch off the top of your measuring cup and start pouring in the water.

Bonus recipe – how to make a natural lip balm with coconut oil, beeswax, and essential oils (optional)

Removing base makeup and blush

Here is the bonus recipe to make homemade lip balm. You need coconut oil, beeswax, and essential oils.

First, you will need to melt the coconut oil until it becomes liquid so that it can be mixed with other ingredients.

Next, add some beeswax into your mixture – how much is entirely up to you but as a general rule of thumb I would say about one tablespoon should do the trick (you might find it easier if you use an electric whisk)….etc.

After that, the optional part is to add essential oil to make it more fragrant.

What essential oils you use is entirely up to how much flavor and scent that you want for your lip balm (you can make it as strong or light as you like)….etc

Another variant of this recipe is adding some natural sweetener such as honey, maple syrup, agave nectar, etc.


I know how hard it’s been since I lost my job a few months ago but don’t worry – there are plenty more fish in the sea!
