1. Hair Styling Spray

All you need to make this is 1 teaspoon of sugar and 1/2 cup of borderline boiling water. Melt the sugar in the water and pour the contents into a spray bottle. This can be used to style your hair, and no additional tools will be needed!

2. Shaving Cream

You can make your own perfectly functional shaving cream that will, in fact, rival even the highest quality store-bought products. Mix together 1/3 cup of shea butter, 1/3 cup of virgin coconut oil, 1/4 cup of almond oil, 10 drops of rosemary essential oil and 3-5 drops of peppermint essential oil. Hardly takes effort to make and will let you achieve the smoothest legs ever!

3. Makeup Removal Wipes

All you need are some paper towels which you should soak in the mixture of the following: 4 cups of warm water, 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil, tiny bit of face wash (or even baby wash, for extra gentle feeling) and a few drops of either tea tree oil. This mixture should take off your makeup flawlessly, and it costs almost nothing to make!

4. Lip Gloss

Yes, you can even make your own lip gloss, and it only takes two ingredients: multipurpose jelly (not petroleum-based, since you’re using it on your skin) and Wilton’s pearl dust. Mix the two together and store in small container.
