DIY Eye Makeup Remover Wipes

October 2, 2014

Why spend endless amounts of cash on remover which never really takes off all of the product on your face? Sometimes the best products are the ones you make yourself, and this is certainly no exception! All you need is a roll of paper towelettes, coconut oil, and purified water.

Not only is this a cost-effective way of removing your makeup, but you know exactly what’s going on your skin! Pop the container into the fridge so your wipes are fresh, and can last for much longer than something you could buy over the counter.
