An easy and effective, not to mention safe for eyes, way to make your own makeup remover
For the new school year, I needed a good makeup remover safe to put around my eyes, and since the ones thee actually work from stores, are SOOOOOOOO(more O's) expensive, so I made my own! You can change the portions for your bottle, mine was from a small body wash at Bath and Body works and the portions I had filled it perfectly. Coconut oil can be found at places like trader joe's. Makeup removing wipes is also coming, once I get the supplies :)

And sorry about the grey bar on the photo, my computer is crappy and I tried to re-upload the picture but it didn't work :(

  • Step 1

    So first, pick and clean your bottle, you don't need a super huge one. Now fill it to the part where it is almost to the top but not quite, 10/11's full :) Now pour it into something to mix all your other things with, also get a small funnel.

  • Step 2

    Now you can add in baby shampoo. For my 2/3 cup I used about 3 tsp, so size that up or down for your bottle. Now for coconut oil. You can find it at places similar to Trader Joe's and places like that, I think it is like 12 dollars a can, so kind of pricey but there is many things to use it for. I used 3 tsp, but you can add a bit more AFTER sizing to your bottle, it is okay if it is a little more then planned. Mix it!!!

  • Step 3

    So now carefully pour it into the funnel and unto the bottle and replace the cap. It will probably be bubbly.

  • Step 4

    To use get a towel (a soft one, and maybe dedicate it for this need, I am not sure how well makeup comes out of towels) and pour a little on, rub directly onto closed eye or other face area, you should see makeup on the towel :) Any questions will be answered and comments appreciated :)

Coconut oil is part of the cleaner, but it will still work if you don't have it, baby shampoo works well by itself to clean makeup Happy

I usually use a bar of dove soap Tongue is the coconut oil a cleaning agent or it for the aroma?

I think it would be okay, but I am not sure. I have been shaking it everyday just to see the bubbles Happy But The oil and water would separate normally after time but I am not sure if the shampoo keeps it together. So I would just say, shake before use and see what happens Tongue I will keep you posted though

I don't wear make-up that often, so does it keep ok? Will the ingredients seperate after a while?
