Hi all! Today I want to share with you the best eye makeup remover recipe I’ve come across in a long time. Now, I’ve been known to love a good long lasting mascara, but sometimes I hate it too, especially when it refuses to come off.
Sure it’s useful to have practically permanent mascara (I’ve been known to get teary over all sorts of silly things and can’t have raccoon eyes every hour of the day!), and it might even feel convenient to just leave it on till tomorrow, but just so ya know, you’re not going to keep your lashes all that long if you go down that road…not that I would know…
So today I’ve got a really good, super simple, homemade eye make-up remover that costs waaay less than your favorite name brands and works just as well.
How to Make The Best Eye Make-Up Remover
Here’s what you’re gonna need:
• A small jar or a pretty little bottle
• Baby Mild Castile Soap
• 2 TB Jojoba Oil (or any oil of your choice like sweet almond, sesame, olive oil, etc)
• Optional essential oil of choice (I like lavender. You can get the one I use HERE)
The Best Eye Make-Up Remover- Loving Preparation
Alright, so this is so easy! All you need to do is mix in your essential oil with the jojoba oil first if you’re using an essential oil. This will keep it from separating from the other ingredients. I used 1 drop in 2 TB of jojoba oil.
Next, fill up your jar or bottle halfway with the baby mild castile soap.
Now fill the remaining half with filtered water almost to the top. Be sure to leave some room for your jojoba oil otherwise it won’t mix well.
Next add your essential oil infused jojoba oil to the jar, cap it tight, and shake it up.
Everything should mix together really nicely. At this point, feel free to use a cotton round or soft cloth to dip into the best eye make-up remover ever and get that pesky mascara to practically jump off your eyes! This stuff has even worked to remove the ever clingy Aqua Smoky Lash mascara by Make Up For Ever. GREAAAT mascara (though not natural in the least…boo) that gives my lashes some real oomph. Now I can finally enjoy wearing it without dreading its difficult removal.
This eye makeup remover will also remove eyeliner, eyeshadow, concealer, and more! It’s made with all natural ingredients that are gentle on your eyes and your body!
Why These Ingredients Work
Baby Mild Castile Soap-
This is the gentlest of the Dr. Bronner’s soaps but don’t let that fool you. This soap can cut through just about any type of gunk, grease, and yes, even that waterproof mascara with ease. It doesn’t strip your skin either since it’s made with simple natural ingredients making it good for your skin and good for the environment. (you can get my favorite brand of castile soap HERE)
This oil is the best when it comes to matching your skin’s natural oils. It doesn’t over dry, imbalance, or cause breakouts. In fact, it does just the opposite!
Of course, oil is also good for removing make-up so it’s only natural that it should belong in this recipe. amiright? (This is my favorite brand)
Lavender Essential Oil
Add it to this recipe and it will last considerably longer than without it.
Lavender also support healthy skin and is known to help smooth fine lines which is extra nice around the eye area. Using this oil will also add a calming element to the recipe which is a huge plus!
