what do you think of this

Recommended Posts

i have a friend whos mom makes some natural products. i asked her to specifically make me a moisturizer that has neem in it, leaves oil or bark or a combination of both. these are the ingredients of the end product:

-almond oil (almond oil based)

-neem leaves

-sandalwood essence

-aloe vera

-basil flower

-chamomile flower

what do you think? im thinking of asking her to make me a facial soap as well

Yes, I am wondering about the almond oil, as I believe it's good for dryer skin types, if I'm not mistaken. It should moisturize, for sure, but I wonder if it might not be the best thing.

I'm not sure I understand sandalwood 'essence'.

Did she use powders? Oils?

i would say i have dry skin...horribly dry after i wash my face. i gave it a try last night..it wasnt as bad and as oily as i thought it would have been. everything was absorbed right in, and theres no shine whatsoever so im glad about that. i believe she used oils and not powders. i wanted to give neem a try and this is essentially my neem moisturizer...wanna give neep soap a go as well.

what are other good moisturizer bases apart from almond oil?

That sounds very cool. In fact, I would buy that if someone near me sold it!

I have had good luck with neem, but the only readily available thing I can find it in is the Bath and Body works mask (which is my fav although it does sting). I definitely wish it were in more products!

thats the one thing that scared me though...clogging. i checked all the ingredients and none of them clog..so im happy knowing that. her mom wont make bar soaps cause you need synthetics (aka chemicals) for bar, so shell only make liquid...which id rather use. ill try to ask for a neem soap.

well i must say i am very pleased. i havent changed anything in my regimen, and i dont use any topicals whatsoever...and my acne is almost clearing =) the only thing i can attribute that too is the neem leaves in the moisturizer, i cant wait for the soap i just had made.

the neem is in the moisturizer my moms friend made, the ingredients are in the very first post. yeah i dont put stuff on my face anymore really, i was looking for a natural soap and the reason i chose coalface was because it was the only soap i could find that had sandalwook oil. so besides the soap i have the moisturizer with neem leaf. im still waiting for the soap i had made though. i honestly believe that putting chemicals on your face is not the way to go...well for me at least...and im happy with my results thus far =)
