As a beauty enthusiast, I fancy a lot of skincare products and what not. With that being said, I go through multiple bottles and packaging which amounts to loads of garbage. I know not all of them gets recycled so whenever possible I try my best to upcycle and contribute the best way I can. One of those is creating my own Moisturizing Foaming Hand Soap in just a few steps!

Not only is it super easy, I get to control the scent variation as well as all the chemicals I introduce to my hands. Let’s be honest – a lot of the products that are highly popularized in the market are either filled with one too many compounds or are too expensive. Yes, there are a few “natural” and “organic” hand soap available but still, the price tag isn’t as budget friendly compare to the regular ones. Thus making your own at home is way more promising as well as cost-effective. If you have kids, this option is definitely a big plus – we all know the little ones enjoy pumping a handful or two. With this method you can let them pump a few handfuls (to their hearts content) and still not worry about being wasteful. Check out the following easy steps …

    That’s such a great idea, I love it. I’m not sure if it really would save money, since hand soap is not expensive and there are still things here that you need to buy. But I like the idea of making your own bespoke blend full of scents you love.

    What a fun and easy DIY gift idea. Wow, I had not realized that liquid soap was 70% water. And the fancy ones are so expensive. I’m definitely going to be making my own soap from now on.
