Have you ever stopped to read the ingredient label on your face cleanser? I’ll bet it would shock you.
I was certainly surprised when I read the ingredient label on my trusty drugstore face wash! When I flipped over the bottle for the first time ever, I saw three different parabens, two dyes, and a whole list of words I couldn’t pronounce.
But here’s the problem: I’ve struggled with super sensitive skin my whole life. This was THE ONLY face wash that didn’t make me break out in an itchy red rash. Even so, I knew that putting this product on my face once or twice a day wasn’t a good idea.
Luckily, I happened to stumble across a natural foaming face wash recipe in an essential oil magazine a couple months ago. Since I already had most of the ingredients on hand, I decided to tweak the recipe a bit and give it a try.
Honestly, I expected a super itchy red rash. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that my skin LOVES this DIY face cleanser! And the best part is that it only requires three simple ingredients to make!
Let me show you how you can make your very own DIY face cleanser so you can kick your old face wash to the curb too. It’s much easier than you think!

Is This Foaming Face Wash Right for Your Skin Type?
This natural foaming face wash is perfect for all skin types: dry, oily, acne-prone, and even the most sensitive skin!
I actually prefer keeping the recipe plain since I use it to take off my eye makeup, but you can definitely customize it with essential oils to suit your particular skin type if you like.
Tea tree essential oil is great for oily and acne-prone skin, and frankincense essential oil is perfect for aging skin. You could add 5-10 drops of one of these oils if you want to get a little fancy with your face cleanser.
How to Make Your Own DIY Face Cleanser
- 8-ounce foaming soap dispenser
- Liquid measuring cup
- Measuring spoon – ½ teaspoon
- 2/3 cup distilled (or boiled then cooled) water
- 1/3 cup unscented liquid castile soap
- ½ tsp. jojoba oil
Pour all ingredients in a foaming soap dispenser and swirl to combine.
How to Use Your DIY Face Cleanser
Pump one or two pumps of foaming face cleanser into your palm and massage into wet skin. Rinse with warm water and immediately apply a face serum such as my DIY Face Oil.
This cleanser will remove eye makeup, although I’ve never tested it on waterproof mascara.
Also, you’ll have to swirl the bottle each time you use the face cleanser because the ingredients will separate.
