Natural Eye Makeup Remover
If you’re like me, then using harsh eye makeup removers is going to cause more harm than good. Not only do I have sensitive skin, but the skin around the eyes is highly sensitive and delicate. The chemicals in traditional eye makeup remover are effective at taking the makeup off, but it is also effective at chemically burning and potentially scarring the skin. On top of that, they tend to be expensive. So here I have for you a natural alternative that uses only one ingredient: extra virgin olive oil.
What you’ll need:
• 2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
• Cotton facial pads
• Small plate
What to do:
Put the olive oil on a shallow plate. Take your cotton pads and put it in your olive oil. Gently remove makeup. Cleanse face with your regular gentle facial cleanser immediately afterwards.
How it works:
This simple ingredient makes all the difference when it comes to makeup removal. Olive oil cuts through the colors and dyes of makeup effectively while moisturizing the delicate skin around the eyes. Olive oil will also condition your eyelashes making them stronger. This inexpensive makeup remover is effective and treats your skin as well, another double whammy!

I use almond oil when I run out of makeup remover-it works just as well and smells awesome! :)

I heard Vaseline works also to remove make up because it’s oil based. It’s also beneficial because it moisturizes.

I’ve always done this – it does work well. Another trick: save leftover green tea (without sugar or milk in it!), and when it cools you can use it as a facial toner.

I use jojoba oil for removing my eye-makeup and it also works really well.

coconut oil is also great—it basically has the consistency of butter (solid at room temperature, melts instantly), and since it’s thinner/runnier than ovoo, I find it absorbs much more easily and is less filmy/greasy.

Thank you so much for sharing! I hate using make-up remover especially around my eye area. I’m always afraid that it’ll do something to my skin.
