I love to wear makeup, and I love knowing that my make up is going to stay where I want it to until I decide to take it off. There are so many awesome long wear and waterproof products on the market. The downside to long lasting and waterproof makeup is removing it without removing all your skin or eyelashes in the process.
There are many great makeup removers on the market. The downside to these makeup removers is not only the chemicals, but also the price tag! I have been making my own makeup remover for about 2 years now for only around $3 for 8 oz.
All you need for this super simple Easy DIY Makeup Remover is one empty 8 oz travel sized container and two household ingredients grapeseed oil (or olive oil) and witch hazel, a measuring cup and a funnel.
How to Make the Easy DIY Makeup Remover
1.) Measure half a cup of grapeseed oil (or olive oil)
2.) Use the funnel to pour the oil into the empty 8 oz travel container.
3.) Measure half a cup of witch hazel.
(If you only have a 4 oz travel container use 1/4 cup of each grapeseed oil and witch hazel. If your container is 6 )
4.) Use the funnel to pour the witch hazel into the 8 oz travel container with the oil.
5.) Put the cover onto the 8 oz container tightly, shake well before each use, the oil and witch hazel will separate.
6.) Pour a small amount onto a cotton round. Start removing your makeup quickly and easily!
Safe to use in small amounts around the eyes.
At around $2 for a 16 oz bottle of witch hazel and around $8-10 for 16 oz of grapeseed oil, 8 oz of makeup remover will end up costing you around $3, (plus the cost of your empty bottle if you don’t already have one). A little goes a long way and 8 oz will last you a long time.
Why I like to use Grapeseed oil: it is packed with antioxidants, including skin-brightening vitamin C. It has also been said to help treat acne, fight aging, moisturize and tighten the skin, as well as lessen dark circles under the eyes.
The skin benefits of witch hazel are also many. It has both antibacterial and antiseptic qualities. Witch hazel is a great natural remedy for skin conditions like psoriasis, acne, and eczema. Witch hazel help remove excess oil from the skin, making it effective at treating blackheads and other blemishes.
