After scrounging drawer after drawer of my vanity table, searching for even a Clinique or Lancome sample product, I remembered a homemade eye makeup remover recipe that I used to make all the time. I love this recipe because it only contains three products that almost EVERYONE will have in their house.
Homemade Eye Makeup Remover
1 cup water
1 1/2 Tbsp. Baby shampoo
1/8 tsp. Olive oil (extra virgin)
Mix all three products together and pour into shampoo container. Ensure that you shake well prior to use so the oil/water combine. Pour on cotton pad and apply to eye area.
Though I would usually never recommend using water to remove eye makeup, when combined with olive oil, it creates the perfect balance. Plus, baby shampoo makes a great cleanser because it's extremely gentle and will never cause your eyes to tear. Together, this concoction makes an inexpensive alternative to the over-priced products on the market AND it works loads better than most brands I've tried in the past.
Have a great weekend, ladies, and let me know your thoughts on this recipe if you try it!!
