The coconut oil I use is from Costco and it's ginormous. It's my oil of preference, though, since it's cold pressed and extra virgin. Both of those are extremely important since it's used on the face but especially on eyes.
- Pick up a pea sized blob of coconut oil on a washcloth or your fingers.
- Massage onto a closed eye for 1-2 minutes or until the mascara feels broken down.
- Wipe away gently with a washcloth from the top and bottom of the eyelashes to remove all of the oil.
- Rinse off with water if residue remains on eyelids or under eyes.
That's all it takes! For the demo I used my Maybelline the Rocket Volum' Express mascara in waterproof (here's my review)! Using the coconut oil does pull some of the curl out of my lashes like the "after" picture shows. It's actually really good for them, however! It makes them softer and can help stimulate growth and thickness over time. This can also be used to remove face makeup as well as long as you rinse off the used oil or as a hair mask!

Have you tried using coconut oil as a makeup remover? What else do you like it for?
