I absolutely love finding new ways to make more natural products at home.
Plus it is always fantastic to save a few bucks in the process.

My new favorite product is DIY eye makeup remover. 
I used to buy Clinique Rinse-off Eye Makeup Solvent which is $18.
It gets to be really expensive when I have to keep buying it and keep buying it.

I have experimented a little with different removers but I definitely prefer the one I make. 

And just to help make your wallet a little thicker, I want to share with you how I make 
my eye makeup remover! Such a nice lady, huh?

    1. U may want to try coconut oil. I have used that for my eye makeup remover for a while now and it works better than anything I have ever tried.

  2. Nice DIY, clever use of baby shampoo.
    I just use grapeseed oil from Trader Joe's for my eye makeup remover. Grapeseed oil is supposed to be good for dark circles too, so I'm counting it as a dual-purpose product!

  3. Thanks so much for posting this. I will DEFINITELY do this. I haven't found a cheap eye makeup remover that works. I think Estée Lauder's formulation is like this. I've been using Avon's but I'm running out. Love this!

  7. Thank you so much for this post. I was also buying clinique but it got expensive and had to go to something a bit cheaper. I have tried several brands and nothing worked as well. I bought and made the recipe and it worked like a charm!! I used the Lavender baby shampoo and lavender baby oil for a nice calming scent and it was great. I worked out the price and its less than .50 to make!! Thank you again.
