  1. I need to do that hair mask tonight!! I love a good lip scrub, especially in the winter.

    1. The hair mask works so well! Its def a staple in my beauty routine.

  2. um what fabulous ideas!! definitely trying the hair mask :)

    1. Hey Kristen, thanks! They all have been Tori tested and approved and work great!

  3. Oooo love the recipe for the leg oil. I think I have all of those. Definitely going to have to give that a try!

  4. Those beauty recipes sound amazing! I used to make my own natural stuff all the time. I am not a huge fan of face masks because of all the chemicals so I would make an oatmeal/honey face mask and it worked wonders without being hard on my sensitive skin. I need to try making my own natural beauty products again.

    1. Hey girl! Thanks! They seriously work wonders, are so inexpensive, and work so much better than some of those fancy products that are out there.

  5. AH! I can't wait to try some of these!

    1. Hi Tausha! Let me know what you think...They are all a total win in my book!

  6. i love a diy--no surprise, right?! where did you get your recipes from?

    1. Hey girl! Yes! No chemicals and all of that extra junk they throw into products that you purchase at the store. Some of the recipes I started using a while back in my high school/college days and then I just improved them as time went on. Others I learned from friends and family memebers who were nice enough to let me in on their secret beauty recipes!
