One year ago: Homegrown Green Onions
Last year I glanced at a Facebook update that suggested making a face powder from cinnamon and cocoa. I gave it a try and it is ….well, not life changing, but money saving and simple. In just a few minutes, with a couple items from your kitchen, you can mix up a perfect color for your face with no animal testing, no yucky additives, no fancy expensive containers. Its great ♥
Get yourself a clean container for storing your personalized bronzer mix. I use a deep glass jar that seals tight for travel and allows me to shake off the extra powder inside the jar to minimize the mess. Then start experimenting with your skin. A little cinnamon, a little cocoa powder. You can also add in some talc if you’d like but I’ve never bothered. Test a spot or two on the top of your hand and add a little more cocoa for more tan, more cinnamon for a sun kissed look.
When I get the color combination best for my face, I pour the spicy mix into my jar with a funnel. Seal it up and your done!
Be sure to use a great Cocoa like Ghirardelli and a respected Cinnamon like Penzey’s and you’ll still be saving tons compared to the drugstore, mystery filled powders. This stuff is literally pennies per year!
I forgot…there is one problem with this stuff.
You’ll smell brownies when you first put it on and it can make you a little hungrier getting put together each day.
