Lanolin and Almond Cleansing Cream

Posted on


This cream is an excellent makeup remover - foundation as well as eye makeup. It can also be used as a night cream.

You will need:

15ml lanolin
45ml sweet almond oil
15ml rosewater
7.5ml aqueous cream


Melt the lanolin and aqueous cream in a double boiler while stirring continuously. Stir in the sweet almond oil, then the rosewater. Remove from the heat and sir until cool. Pour the mixture into a clean jar.

To use:

Place a small amount of the cream on to a dampened cotton pad, and use to wipe away eye makeup. Cleanse face in the same way. Tissue excess cream away. Rinse face and eyes thoroughly.

NB. It is advisable to do a patch test before using products containing lanolin as some people can have an allergic reaction to it.
