That little pack of drugstore makeup wipes may be cute and convenient, but over time, the cost can quickly add up — especially when you keep losing them in the bottom of your purse. Save yourself five bucks each month by mixing up your own natural eye makeup remover at home with common ingredients you probably already have lying around the house.
Here are two quick-and-easy recipes to get you started:
The convenience of makeup remover wipes cannot be disputed. Especially for those times when you’re just too tired to wash your face before hitting the sack (you really should wash your face before bed every night, but let’s face it. Sometimes we’re just too pooped). These handy wipes will help keep your face free and clear of old makeup that could wreak havoc on your skin overnight.
Coconut oil is great to cook and bake with, but it’s good for your skin, too. It’s a great, gentle moisturizer, and is said to have antibacterial and antifungal properties.
These wipes are simple to make! I added some decorative tape to the top of my container, just for fun. To make your own, you’ll need the following.
Use heavy scissors to cut your half roll of paper towels in half, right down the middle. If you prefer, rip off each towel, then cut them in half, a few at a time. This will take a bit more time.
