♡ Kitchen Beauty Care ♡ DIY Makeup Remover

This is one of the easiest DIY skincare regimens I use and it's because all it calls for is coconut oil! I have very straight eyelashes so I only ever use waterproof mascara which is very hard to remove. I've tried store bought makeup removers but they're all chemicals and usually burned when I used them since my skin and eyes are so sensitive.

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.

  1. Pick up a pea sized blob of coconut oil on a washcloth or your fingers.
  2. Massage onto a closed eye for 1-2 minutes or until the mascara feels broken down.
  3. Wipe away gently with a washcloth from the top and bottom of the eyelashes to remove all of the oil.
  4. 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!
Here's my last Kitchen Skincare post: DIY Lemonade Scrub!
