Orange Juice & Baking Soda Facial

Hubby and I were up watching mindless tv Monday night after the kids were in bed so I decided to make facial scrub I had seen on Pinterest a couple weeks ago. The blogger used orange juice and baking soda mixture, you can find the her post HERE. I cut an orange we had in half (from Bountiful Baskets) and squeezed it into a glass cup then measured out the juice and baking soda into a small bowl. Once I mixed them I realized I needed more baking soda so I sprinkled in some more.

It is easy to apply it to my face and neck. It makes a lot of scrub so I convinced my hubby he needed to help use some, to which he reluctantly agreed.


As we waited for the twenty minutes to pass our face first felt a slight burning followed by itching. Removing the scrub was easy but left our faces burning again. We applied a dab of lotion like the poster had mentioned which stopped the burning sensation. After our faces were dried we could immediately feel a difference of our skin. It left our faces feeling smooth and clean.

The original post says it is great at removing black heads, we didn’t see that it effected black heads at all. If your specifically looking for a black head remover I wouldn’t recommend this facial for that purpose. However I would still recommend this facial as a once a month treatment to strip your face of extra layers of skin, oil and dirt. Three days later our faces still feel smooth.

I would give this Pinned It/Tried It 4 out of 5 stars. It didn’t do exactly what I was hoping for but it is still a great face cleanser and very easy to do!

  1. Wow, so impressed you got the Mr to do it with you. I tried a similar mask last week (also from Pinterest) but it called for milk instead of OJ. No burning sensation, although I only left mine on for a few minutes … but my skin was SOOO soft afterwards. This also claimed to clear blackheads but again I saw no evidence of that. So nice to meet you!

    • Haha, thanks Stacy! I had to convince him that we didn’t want to waste the remainder of the facial mix. Pretty sure he has no idea I blogged about it though. 😉 I’ll have to try the baking soda and milk combo!!
