I use expensive, local, organic, unpasteurized honey. It costs $12 per quart. I justify this with the following logic.
-This money is going to a good place. Local, non polluting agriculture is good for the economy.
-Even tho' I'm not eating it, all those probiotics have got to be good for my face.
-It comes in a Mason jar- a container that I'll have forever, no need to recycle, no space taken up in a landfill.
-I make a strong green tea, and, while it's still hot, drizzle the honey in. So my face wash is 50% honey, 50% green tea. So for $12, plus the cost of a few teabags ($0.50?), I get a half gallon of face wash. Which really is pretty inexpensive compared to commercial facewashes. It will never go bad (reading about the preservative properties of honey convinces me it'll have me looking 25 when I'm dead).
A half gallon of face wash lasts me and DH about 18 months, so we are spending, what $0.75 per month on facewash? Not too shabby.
Since I started my (almost) all natural skin care regimin, my skin has never looked better.
