Homemade All Natural Eye-Makeup Remover

WHOA - This post is popular!  I guess I'm not the only eye-makeup junkie.  Click here to read my makeup brush cleaner. 

I adore eyeshadow. I love eyeliner.  Mascara is my best friend.  That being said, I use a lot of eye-makeup remover.  I used to use the Clinique eye-makeup remover for $17 a bottle!  That seemed pretty high, and since I go through it like it's going out of style, it hits the wallet hard.

I began searching for all natural/organic homemade eye makeup remover.  I tweaked a concoction to perfection based off one I found on pinterest.  

This makeup remover is nongreasy, and gets the job done! The only thing is you must shake it up before each use!

You'll need:
1 cup of distilled water (be sure to use distilled!)
1/2 teaspoons of Dr. Bronner's unscented baby-mild liquid castile soap (I found mine at Whole Foods, but you can buy it on their website!)
1 1/4 teaspoons of olive oil
Small containers with lid (I bought two travel sized containers from Target)

1. Pour ingredients into container with lid
2. Shake well!
3. Put into small container using a funnel.

It works!

Talk about saving money!!! I bough distilled water for 99 cents, and the soap for under $6 after tax.  I already had olive oil.  Basically, I could make over 1 gallon of this stuff on less than $7!  That's WAY less than Clinique!

Squeaky Clean!

  1. have you considered substituting the olive oil for coconut oil? Better scent and better for the skin:)

  2. Thank you for the great post. I was using a make up remover from Bath and Body works that I loved. They recently discontinued it and I have been searching and trying every make-up remover under the sun. They are all so darn greasy. I am so excited to give this a try!!:)
