DIY Frugal Makeup Remover

DIY Eyemakeup Remover

The advent of Pinterest has pretty much made me want to make everything from scratch. Cause if it can be made from scratch, you can find the way to do it on Pinterest. Not only is it more frugal to do so but it is a way to get all the chemicals and junk out of your stuff. And I am a big fan of that.

One of the things I have always hated spending money on is eye makeup remover. It costs a lot. But is a total necessity if you are lazy like me and forget to take your eye makeup off before you go to bed. I wake up looking like a major raccoon.

Who knew you could make your own with a few simply ingredients I totally always have on hand.

DIY Makeup Remover

inspired by Pinterest

1 c. water

1 1/2 T baby shampoo

1/4 t. olive oil (or coconut oil)

Combine ingredients and stir. Pour into a container. I recommend shaking the container each time you use to mix everything together. Apply with a cotton ball.

So easy and it works so well.

What DIY household product have you had the most luck with?

  2. I have been getting a reaction to any kind of facial products lately so I’ve just quit using them. Including makeup. But a girl’s got to wash her face still! So I actually found a DIY recipe on Money Saving Mom and it’s sunflower/safflower oil and castor oil. That’s it. Mixed in slightly different proportions depending on your skin type, but so far it’s worked really well.
    Although I do have to admit that the smell of the castor oil is kind of gnarly… since the only other time I’ve ever used it I had to drink it to induce labor with my second. Good times!
    Beware of your baby shampoo… if you have to use Johnson’s at least go with the Natural line! They still have some pretty yucky chemicals in them.
