What do you do when you have a house full of teenage girls that go through beauty products faster than you ever thought possible? Start making your own.
These makeup remover pads cost just pennies to make so when you find yourself replacing them every couple weeks you won't mind quite as much how fast they go through them.
These pads are also so much better for your face than store bought ones. There are only 3 ingredients besides the water and they are all extremely gentle and mild on your skin. Not to mention they are probably all in your house right now if you've been doing any DIY projects at all.
DIY Makeup Remover Pads
Small glass jar with lid (a small mason or jelly jar works great)
Circle cotton pads
2 tablespoons Fractionated Coconut Oil (Where to buy)
1 teaspoon liquid Castile soap (Where to buy)
2-3 tablespoons distilled water
5 drops Lavender Essential Oil
In a small bowl, mix together the coconut oil, castile soap, water and lavender oil.
Fill your glass jar with the cotton pads.
Pour the oil mixture over the cotton pads. Screw the lid on tightly and shake to coat the pads. Let jar sit for about an hour. Then flip the jar over and let it sit for another hour. Just long enough to let the coconut oil mixture distribute through the cotton pads. You want them moist enough to remove your makeup but not dripping or over saturated.
After you do this last step if you open your jar and feel they aren’t moist enough then just add about a half a tablespoon more of coconut oil and repeat the sitting and flipping over of the container.
How To Use:
Use one pad at a time to remove makeup from your face. Dispose of pad after use. Keep the lid on the jar to prevent the pads from drying out.
I used Young Living Essential Oils when I made this recipe! I love the Seed to Seal Guarantee and the process behind distilling their oils. You know that you are getting Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.
