DIY Eye Makeup Remover

coconut oil makeup removerI ran out of eye makeup remover one night and I absolutely hate to sleep in mascara. That’s when I remembered hearing about using coconut oil as eye makeup remover. (What can coconut oil NOT do, right?!? Oh yeah, you can’t shave with it.)

Well I tried the coconut oil and it worked amazingly well. I have been doing this for several months now to make sure the honeymoon stage would last and it has! I am happy to report I have been very pleased with my results as I remove my makeup each night and I hope you will be too.

First, get about a dime size of coconut oil on your fingers.

Rub onto each eye in a circular motion.

Use a clean cotton ball to wipe away the residue.

And ta-da! Works like a charm. Every time.

I also stopped using face wash so I keep my coconut oil close by and wash my face with a little bit mixed with corn meal. You can read about my first experiment with that here.

Let me know what you think!
