A few months ago I received a sample of dirt. luxe salt scrub in my Birchbox. It smelled AWESOME and made my skin feel nice. Upon learning that it had a few different oils in it…I decided to experiment. I made my own salt scrub using olive oil, and it made my skin feel great! A few weeks ago I soaked in a tub laced with olive oil, and it made my skin SO SOFT. As you can see…one thing has led to another and I have a new obsession.
A week or so ago I started using jojoba oil as a nighttime moisturizer, and I am SUPER PLEASED with how it makes me skin look and feel. I haven’t really noticed a decrease in oil production during the day…but since it hasn’t increased I feel confidant in trying out the oil cleansing method once my current face wash runs out.
In the meantime, time to move up to my hair! I’ve been reading for a while that coconut oil and olive oil are both really good for your hair, so I found a recipe and tonight I mixed up a mask. I let it sit for an hour, than rinsed it out with the shampoo I got in my birchbox, and an argan oil mask I picked up a week or two ago:
Just rinsing the oils out didn’t make my hair feel any more spectacular, but conditioning with the mask definitely helped. My hair is still wet now so it’s kinda hard to tell if it made a huge difference, but I do think my hair feels softer. Whoo! Oils!
