Olive Oil: Natural Makeup Remover

Two days ago, we ran out of makeup remover. I buy the normal kind you can get anywhere. It’s a name brand, expensive and half-blue, half-clear liquid. It works well and I never thought about using anything else, until yesterday.

I was trying on some of my daughter’s new mascara that is supposed to make your lashes super long. It worked (I will probably buy some) but it is water-proof and I was unaware of this.

No makeup remover+water-proof mascara=total raccoon eyes. I scrubbed and scrubbed and all I managed to accomplish was irritate the skin around my eyes.

After a quick search, Rebekah found out that plain olive oil can be used as a substitute. It is miraculous! I put some good olive oil in a pump bottle and used it last night to take off my makeup. I am hooked! I have read some recipes this morning and will try a few and let you know what works best. But, as far as I’m concerned, plain olive oil did the trick!

The skin around my eyes feels beautifully silky this morning. I’m going to keep trying this and see what the results are over a longer period of time.

Try it out and let me know your thoughts.
