How often do you use either of these? You've sold them so well I want to try them out now!
I use the toner morning and night after cleansing. :)
Whoops, forgot to comment about the mask.
I've only just recently started using the mask, so I've only done it a couple of times. I'm planning on using it maybe once or twice a week, because I really like it.
Great, thanks! I'll give this a try next time I pick up groceries (so I can get green tea and more jojoba oil).
This toner has been a godsend for my face. Thank you!
I hope they work for you! Be strong when you apply the ACV, its aroma totally caught me off guard the first time I used it. I still get light headed thinking about it. lol
Haha, that ACV story kills me. :D
The toner sounds awesome and much less harsh than the straight ACV I've been using. I'm going to give it a try. Thanks!
Oh man, I'm so excited to try that toner. As soon as I get the time, I'm going to make some and then probably fall completely in love with it.
Thanks for sharing what you came up with! these sound great, will definitely give them a try :D
I really enjoy the way you present what you share. It is a treat to read and the process seems so clear and easy. I hope you write books. Please let me know if you do.
Haha, well I do do some writing on the side, but it's mostly audio drama scripts, fiction and short memoirs. I would love to write a book some day, but I have no idea what it would be about. I always liked the title "I Pee Crooked" and somehow want to tailor a memoir around that.
Thanks for the compliments, though! I've never had anyone say that to me before. :D

*raises eyebrow* but do you? lol
re: acv toner... how acidic is your apple cider vinegar? mine is 5% but there were bottles there that were much higher acidity. also, i forgot to steep my green tea bags for 30 minutes, it was more like 10, do you think this will really make a difference? have i stuffed it? :S
thank you for yr post
ps. also, what oil would you recommmend as a moisturiser following ocm + the toner, if i have dry to normal skin? jojoba? sweet almond? grapeseed?
AHHH! I love this! Thanks so much for posting! I tried the toner and I'm amazed how well my skin appeared afterwards! I didn't have any chamomile tea and it still turned out wonderful. Thanks!
I'm glad it worked out for you! I am so in love with it, it's not even funny. :)
Ooh I need to try this out thank you very much for the recipes!
Do you use the toner after OCM and just leave it like that?
Yes, I wash with OCM, apply the toner and for all intents and purposes, just leave it like that.
I do have to admit, though, that a couple weeks ago, I started using this product by Godiva Skincare that you're supposed to put on after cleansing and toning called "LicoWhite Skin Brightening Cream" that uses glabridin from licorice extract to even out and fade skin discoloration from age spots, scars, exposure to the sun, etc.
It does contain stabilizers and preservatives and stuff like that, though, so it is not all-natural, but it works and doesn't break me out, so I use it. I really don't need moisturizer because OCM and the oils I put in my toner do all the moisturizing I need, so in the morning I only apply it to affected areas because it tends to make my face shiny. In the evening, I use it all over, since nobody's going to see me.
How long does this last? I'd just be concerned with germies growing in there, especially with the oil presence.
i'm no expert, but i'm thinking the ACV will help keep germies down, since vinegar is used for cleaning
okay, i found this post from another recent post, and i have a question: how much tea tree oil do you put in the toner? i really want to try this. i'm juuuust starting out with OCM (i've been using proactive, and all the raving about OCM is making me want to try it!). as in, i just washed with it for the first time last night. i have tea tree oil and ACV... well, everything BUT the jojoba and the asprin. so would you say like a couple drops of the TTO? or what? help!
i'm also very curious, i'd like to add TTO to my next batch of toner, but i have no idea what ammounts i should add.
