Thinning with water

This is kind of a no brainer in some ways, but sometimes I need the reminder ~ Almost any personal care product can successfully be thinned out with water, shampoo, conditioner, liquid soaps, lotions, hairspray, hair gel, etc. Facial care is a little different. I have gotten my best results by wetting my face and hands a little before applying eye creams and facial moisturizer. This way my hands arre not absorbing so much, and I can evenly moisturize my face instead of having some patches more moisturized than others and having some patches feeling heavy. I find this to work excellently! There are also quite a few household products that can be thinned: dish soap, fabric softener, laundry soap, bleach, ammonia, linen water, etc. Give it a try and save some money ~


  1. I wet my face before I add moisturizer, too. Works great. Thanks for the reminder on the other items.

  2. You're welcome. Sometimes I just forget how much of something you actually need for it to be effective and how much get wasted if we're not paying attention. I love Benjamin Franklins quote "a penny saved is a penny earned". and there is another one "mind your pennies and your dollars will take care of themselves". Not sure who said it though.

    Many people just don't care about their pennies though, they only want to save big bucks forgetting that even a million dollars starts with one single cent.
