Green Tea Repairing Face Cream healthy, clean and nourishing - great for dry or aging skin! | saynotsweetanne.com | #lotion #diy #clean #beauty #greentea

A while back I posted my DIY Natural Face Moisturizer, because I use it and I love it. That recipe focuses on being light and non-greasy, and I find it works perfect for my naturally oily skin type. However, the recipe might not be the perfect solution for someone with dry, chapping skin, or those who find their skin aging and unable to keep its moisture balance.

My best friend, Amy (she’s doing well in Korea by the way. I miss her! ♥) gets wind burn. Any time she is out in the cold her face becomes dry and cracked to the point of pain. Usually the easiest target is her face. I’m sure Amy isn’t the only one who experiences this during the colder months, so with September well upon us, and the first cold snap of the year, I began working on a special face cream just for them. Introducing my Green Tea Face Cream!

On my Lotion Texture and Feeling scale, this one is a little heavier than some of the others I’ve posted.

This Repairing Face Cream is perfect for people like Amy. Green tea has been known to repair some sun damage and possibly reduce signs of aging. Plus, it smells yummy. The Rose hip seed oil focuses on skin repair and regeneration, which makes this cream great for chapped areas. Rose hip seed oil is also used for aging skin, increasing its ability to repair itself. Coconut and Almond oils are great moisturizers, and bee wax helps lock in that effect. Its all natural, smells delicious and is great for your skin!!

Oh, and did I mention it is easy? The Green tea face cream is arguably easier than the DIY Natural Face Moisturizer, because there is no emulsification in the blender. What are we waiting for! Let’s get to it!!

What You Need:

  • .25 oz (by weight!) bees wax. Grate the wax, or you can buy it in pellets. Avoid wax made for candles, as it can be mixed with other things and be scented. 100% pure bee wax is what we’re after here.
  • 1 oz almond oil (I order on Amazon)
  • 1 oz coconut oil
  • 1/4 tsp Rose Hip Seed Oil (I got mine at Amazon)
  • 1 packet organic green tea
  • Sterilized container to store lotion in
  • A chocolate melter or double boiler
  • A deep, heavy cup and a hand mixer
  • Fine sieve or tea strainer

This Green Tea recipe has become a fan favorite, and I’ve been asked a lot of questions about it. I’ve compiled the answers into an easy FAQ at the bottom of this page. Check it out!

 

How To Make It:

  1. Clean and sterilize all of your equipment. This lotion has a longer shelf life because it is oil only, but we don’t want to create a breeding ground for bacteria.
  2. Combine wax and oils in a double boiler or chocolate melter. Allow everything to melt together.

  3. Open the tea bag and pour loose tea into the oils. Let the mixture warm and extract from the tea for 15 minutes.
  4. Strain oil mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a deep cup. (I used my pyrex measuring cup.)
  5. Whip the mixture with your hand mixer, periodically scraping down the sides, until lotion is room temperature and creamy.

  6. Store green tea face cream lotion in a cool dark place. Keep in mind that lotions have a shelf life. Do not use anything that looks or smells wrong. That said, oil only lotions have a very long shelf life.

DIY Lotion Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I use loose leaf tea? How much?

Absolutely. I would think a couple of tablespoons. It shouldn’t hurt anything if you use too much.

Can I leave the tea in the bag?

You can certainly try. I was afraid that the viscosity of the oils would keep it from permeating the tea bag, and I wouldn’t get any green tea in at all.

Do I need Beeswax? Can I substitute it?

You can try swapping with 1/2 the amount in carnuba, emulsion or soy wax. I do recommend using a wax to help stabilize the mixture.

By weight or by volume?

For all of my recipes the measurements are by volume unless noted otherwise. In this particular recipe, all of the oils are measured by volume but the beeswax is measured by weight. The coconut oil was measured in its semi-solid room temp state.

Can I add/substitute this, that or the other thing?

I get these sort of questions a lot. These recipes are simple ratios of solid, semi solid and liquid oils/additives. Obviously I have not tried everything under the sun, so I don’t really know what would happen if you try adding X or Y. But please, experiment! Try things! Add that fancy rose water, or that pigment, or sub out that oil- whatever! Report back and let us know what you find.

Do I need a blender?

I would really, really recommend it. A hand mixer or stand mixer with a whisk attachment would be fine too.

How Much Does It Make?

Well, silly me forgot to measure before I started using it. But you can see the 1 cup measure in the picture to get an idea.

      Its difficult to guess how long the whipping takes. Basically you have to whip it until it is completely cool. Depending on how hot your double boiler or melter gets, and the temp of your room, it can vary widely. If you are impatient, you can set the cup in a cool water bath while you whip. Be careful though, because if you get water in the mixture it will be ruined. :C

      As far as speed, crank it up as high as you can go without breaking your cup, or flinging the mix all over =D

      Gina,

      I use the ones I linked to- I got them on Amazon as my local store charges too much. I’ve never heard of Carrier Oil in sweet Almond, what is the difference between that and just Almond oil? In theory, you can use any liquid oil. It just might not be as good for your skin.

      Narineh,

      I have not tried the recipe with jajoba, but it is a fine substitute for almond. I would certainly NOT use rose essential oil in the amounts listed. Essential oils are very potent. I chose rosehip seed oil for its healing properties. You could simply leave it out, and have a nice lotion without those properties. Good luck!

    Hi, I’m trying your recipe for face cream but don’t have a scale. I’m using small beeswax pastille. Do you now about how many tablespoons is .25 oz of small pastilles? Also, what temp should the burner be?

    Thank you.

      Kathleen,

      If you’re using a double boiler system, the pot of water on the bottom should be bubbling, but NOT at a rolling boil. Set your burner so that you can accomplish this.

      Unfortunately, wax pastilles/pellets/shredded wax are all vastly different in terms of volume. This is why I give the measurement by weight. I would estimate its about a tablespoon MELTED. So, maybe melt your wax and then measure out a tablespoon?

    I made this but changed out almost all the oils – shea butter instead of coconut, and a mixture of mostly sunflower and olive oil and a little castor instead of almond.
    I thought it would be a bit thickers as shea is harder then coconut, but it’s really soft! And it doesn’t look like cream on my skin, it’s like rubbing plain oil on it and it stays on there for a while…
    I measured all the oils by weight, was I not supposed to?

      Eve,

      Whoa! That’s a lot of substitutions! Its hard to say why your cream is coming out oily, having never tried those combinations myself. I do know that I find both Shea and Olive to be too heavy/greasy for my taste- perhaps that is part of it? Did the cream whip up as expected?

    I’d like to try to make these but I was wondering how you clean all your equipment after use? Especially the seive, and when you use the blender, the blender? I’ve made oil/beeswax mixes before that after i poured it out, and let what remained cool, I scraped out using baking soda and paper towels into the trash. The first time I washed a small amount down the sink and ended up jamming our garbage disposal and probably lined our pipes with some beeswax. Just can’t imagine how you get all the oil and wax out of a seive.

    Thank you!

      Hey Hannah,

      I find that boiling a large stock pot of water and putting all my utensils in works really well for cleaning. For the blender, I disassemble and scrape what I can off, then drop it in the dishwasher!

      John, I usually boil a large pot of water and sterilize my jars there. For the mixing bowls etc I use them fresh out of my heated-dry dish washer.

      Really, you’re going to need a hand mixer, or a stand mixer for this. Blending in a blender will be near impossible because its not liquidy enough to move freely in the blender. A whisk would take you hours. :/

          You have to use distilled water to sterilize your bottles and equipments. Normally, I fill a spray bottle with 91% rubbing alcohol and spray on whatever tools I use and let them air dry. This kills all the bacteria.

      I’m glad you like it!! For liquid oils the ounce measurement is by volume. For the grate wax the measurements are by weight. This was my first foray into the Rose Hip Seed Oil, and I was being conservative. I can’t see any reason why you couldn’t add more! Let me know if you do and how it worked.

      Amy,

      Adding a non-oil component to this lotion would make it a totally different process, similar to my Clean and Healthy DIY Face Moisturizer. At first blush I’d reccomend against it because of the amount of wax and solid-at-room-temp oils in this recipe. Perhaps you can make the moisturizer, but add some rose hip seed oil and steep the oils with tea before creating? I would start with that recipe rather than this one.

      You really don’t want to blend oil & water as it will lead to mold down the road unless you use a preservative which will defeat the purpose of being all natural. If you’d like it more liquid, just go easy on the beeswax.

    I’m going to use your links to buy the almond oil and rose hip seed oil…could you also recommend a coconut oil on Amazon? I know you might not buy it from there. This is all new to me and do so appreciate any help you can give.
    I also wrote a note about essential oils on your other moisturizer. I’ll still buy the oils but use them for other uses since this face cream is better for me.

      Great question! I’ve just added a FAQ section to the post to help with questions like these. I chose not to keep it in the bag because I don’t think the viscosity of oil would allow it through the fine filter. As for subbing things, I’ve not tried either of those, but my recipes are sort of just guides. Feel free to try it and let me know!

            I whipped it for a while with the beater, then put it in a pan of cool water, and whipped some more. I finally switched to a stick blender, and it thickened some, but still does not look like your picture. I did double the recipe, and substituted for the almond oil. I may try it again later, when I get some almond oil.

      Have a look in the FAQ section at the end of the post (in pink), there are a couple other options for beeswax, and a section about oil substitution. The recipes are simple rations so yo’d probably be okay with the grape seed oil. Hope that helps!

      Hi Michelle, you can use xanthan gum or lecithin to sub the bee wax. Normally, xantham gum is added to water but it will explode and become gooey. I personally like to mix my xanthan gum in a little bit of oil. For lecithin depends on which type you buy. You have to experiment to mix a little with water or oil and see how they react. I use both in my serum and it makes it silky. I like to use grapeseed oil and macadamia nut oil too because I dislike greasy feeling. Somehow I find almond oil for me is a little oily.

      Kayla I will be trying out your recipe but will add a lot of other goodies inside as well like Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and N-Acetyl Glucosamin (NAG) because they can heal acne scar, anti-aging and anti-pigmentation.

      I’m sorry but I’m not a healthcare professional. I’m not even a lotion expert. I’m a person who knows a bit about some things and likes to create. I’m really not able to give any sort of advice on medical conditions. I would say that a natural lotion is a good start. I’m not sure what versa pulse does to skin so I can’t comment on any of these ingredients in that arena.

    Im allergic to almonds and nuts…. I heard that grape seed oil is amazing for the skin and so is Vitamin E. I was thinking of substituting that for almond oil, do you think it would be the same consistency?

    Has anyone else had this problem…my final product still has tiny pieces of wax in it (even though it was thoroughly melted) that quickly melt as I message it in. It’s sort of a nuisance. Any ideas on what I did wrong. Aside from that…
    I LOVE THIS CREAM!

      That has happened to me several times with different beauty products. I figured out it was because I didn’t stir it enough when it was melted. It looked stirred because everything turns clear but it wasn’t. I stir mine as it was cooling to, just to be sure.

    Hi, this seems really awesome and I want to try it, but I was wondering if it has any spf (and how much)? I know that roses hip seed oil and coconut oil has a bit of natural spf but I don’t know if it’s concentrated enough to even count xD

      Sofie,

      I really wouldn’t consider this to have any natural SPF. As always, be sure to use a sunscreen on your face!

    I have just read the receipe and I am exciting. I would like to ask you if I can use 15 oz of wax for having more fluid cream.
    Thank you for all

      The recipe only uses .25oz of wax, so 15 would be way to much!! That said, yes, you can use less wax for a less waxy cream. However, you might end up with just a nice whipped oil.
