Make your own eye makeup remover

I am not a big fan of makeup. I know, I am a girl and I should love it, but I really not into makeup to much. First because I don’t know how to make any fancy make up when I use make up I look worse than without it. And second, because I don’t go to places where I need makeup. However, I do like to wear mascara often and I hate when I need to remove it before bed. It is definily a waste of my time and I hate  it.

This week, thinking about that and how many times I bought eye make up remover and never work so well plus I am often worried about how many chemical the eyes makeup remover  has and how bad are they for my eyes or skin. I saw  Jillee recipe in her blog and decided give it a try.

So here is what I used:

1 cup distilled water
1 1/2 Tablespoons baby shampoo (no tears)
1 Tablespoon coconut oil
A few drops of essential oil (optional)

Heat the water for about a minute in the microwave/ or pan(I used pan I don’t have microwave :(.  )…then add the shampoo and the solid coconut oil. The coconut oil become liquid in the warm water. Add a couple of drops of essential oil if you like. I didn’t add the essential oil in mine.

Here my eye with mascara:

My dirty cotton ball;

My eye clean:

It cleans easy and fast. One cotton ball per eye ( and my eyes are “giantescos”, my words for really BIG).

I am happy with the results.
