DIY: Make-up Remover

Last week I was getting ready to clean my face when I saw that I was on my last makeup remover wipe. This is no good. I hate paying almost eight bucks for a pack of 20-30 wipes. I think it's way too much money and although they are really handy the fact is, makeup remover is way too expensive. So with that in mind I turned to my favorite site, Pinterest to see if there was any type of do it yourself make up remover. Turns out there was. I'm super excited to share this with you ladies out there who, like me, are on a budget and would rather spend that money on something else. The ingrediants are simple. Definitely something most of you moms with little ones have in your bathroom right now. Best of all, this cost less than the name brand makeup removers, works FANTASTIC and you get a ton of of it.

1 Cup of Water
1 1/2 TBSP Baby Shampoo (Tear Free)
1/8 TSP Baby Oil (Coconut or Olive Oil)

Combine all the ingredients together in a bowl.
Stir until mixed.
Pour into plastic bottle or airlock jar.

I hope you all get great use out of this, I know I have. Enjoy!



  1. This is a good idea, stuff we all have sitting at home for the most part. Thanks for sharing!!! :D

  2. What can you use for a substitute for the baby shampoo???

    1. I didn't use baby shampoo. I just added more olive oil and baby oil. I worked just fine! This is a GREAT concoction!

  3. I substituted my regular face soap (MK formula 3) for the baby shampoo. Works great! Thanks.

  4. I'll have to try this recipe for my daughter for next Christmas. I'm always on the look out for gifts to make! :D
