Fresh-Picked Beauty's version of Let The Good Times Roll Facial Cleanser

My version of a popular brand's Let The Good Times Roll facial cleanser
Tis' the Season for gift giving and there are two ways to get that done.  You either buy the special gift or you craft it yourself.  I love to make my friends special beauty treats and I could not help myself from coming up with my own version of a very popular facial cleanser called Let the Good Times Roll.  This festive beauty product is great for gently scrubbing your skin to a smooth and healthy glow. I used all the same ingredients, but I swapped out their listed ingredient of talc for  the kaolin clay I had at home. I also left out the Gardenia Extract and the only fragrance I added in was from pure vanilla extract.  Since I had received a sample of the store's product I was able to play around with it and recreate the texture almost perfectly.  The store put popped corn on top of their version and I did the same thing, however I am pretty certain it is just for "looks" and unless you are gifting this to a friend, you can leave the popped corn off.

Most of these ingredients are available from your local grocery store and you can get glycerine and clay from Mountain Rose Herbs.

Fresh-Picked Beauty's version of Let The Good Times Roll Facial Cleanser
50 grams Maise flour (cornmeal)
20 grams Kaolin clay
15 grams Polenta
Pinch of Cinnamon Powder
30 grams Glycerine
15 grams Corn Oil
6 grams Vanilla Extract
3 grams Popped Corn

    
  Combine the Kaolin Clay, Polenta, Cinnamon Powder and Maize Flour in a food processor and grind to a very fine powder. 

 It needs to be a fine powder in order to create a gentle texture for your face and body. 

 Drizzle the Glycerine, Corn Oil and Vanilla Extract over the powdered ingredients. Mix very well to form a smooth and creamy paste.  

Form mixture into a round cake or a ball.  Top with Popcorn for gift giving or leave it off and just store it in an airtight container for up to a month in the fridge. Do not use your fingers to get the product out, always use a clean utensil.  To use, moisten your face with a bit of warm water.  Place a teaspoon sized amount of the product into your palm and add enough warm water to create a creamy paste.  Massage into your skin using circular motions for several minutes. Rinse with warm water. 

Enjoy & Green Blessings.
