Homemade Moisturizer

I have very sensitive skin and the slightest perfume in a moisturizer can cause my face to burn so on Saturday I found a recipe for homemade moisturizer. It is basic items you have in your kitchen.
This recipe make 3 oz. and must be kept in the fridge when not being used.

1 Tbs. olive oil
1 Tbs. coconut oil
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
2 Tbs. mashed strawberry (1 lg. strawberry)
Optional of 1 Tbs. Vitamin E

Mash up strawberry really well. In a airtight container mix in the oils and then add strawberries to it. Refrigerate and use when needed. It smells really yummy and makes your skin shiny and soft but soaks in fast. I wouldn't suggest this if you have oil skin or acne problems.
Before I used this I did a homemade facial exfoliate. You put in a handful of regular table salt and add olive oil to it till it is spreadable. Spread on your face and neck and rest for about 15 to 20 minutes. After this rinse well. Your face will feel so good.
Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Makes sense to add the mashed strawberry -- adds a bit of astringency and vitamin C to the oils -- plus it must smell GREAT.
Terrific idea!

Does the strawberry make you feel sticky at all?
