Homemade Natural Makeup Remover

So, I’ve been trying to become more eco-friendly with the things I use/do daily.  For example, I’ve stopped using disposable disinfectant wipes and switched to using old towels when cleaning.  This was a big deal for me because I was obsessed with the wipes.  They were so easy to use when it came to cleaning and all I had to do was throw them out.  Looking back, however, I added a lot of junk into the environment that just didn’t need to be there.  Not to mention, I exposed my body to a lot of unnecessary chemicals, and guess what?  Now I’m helping the environment, reducing my exposure to more chemicals, and saving money to boot.

Anyhow, after I finished my last container of makeup removal pads, I took a look at the ingredients on the bottle and felt a little disappointed.  I’ve been using this product for years, and not once did I think to look at what I was wiping onto my eyelids.  It was all a bunch of foreign chemicals.  The product I was using before was recommended by Allure magazine as one of the best OTC makeup removers.
I went online to look for natural ways to remove my eye makeup, and many people swore that this mix was foolproof.  I tried it out.
Equal parts witch hazel and olive oil in a travel bottle.  Give it a good shake, put it on a cotton ball or tissue, and wipe off the makeup.

This actually works better than the product I was using before!  I’ve been using this for about 2 months now, and I haven’t had any issues with my skin either.  I’m definitely converted.  This is supposed to have a shelf life of one year which is more than sufficient.  It’s also so ridiculously affordable, it’s almost a joke.

Definitely on the road to being more eco-friendly.  Slowly, but surely.  If you have any eco-friendly suggestions for daily life, let me know! 🙂
