DIY Makeup Remover Pads


I am a busy woman, working from home with two boys. So I am a huge fan of quick facial cleansing pads, quickly remove make up and rejuvenate at the same time! But they can be pricey. I bought the Neutrogena ones for years, but I burned through them so quickly and the dollars added up.

I like to find organic and all natural remedies for other products in my house, like here. So I decided to try this out. I first did some research about all natural alternatives online. There are tons of options and you can certainly customize the recipe for your skin type. I luckily found a recipe that worked for me and I could use products I already had :)

Here is what you need for this DIY:

mason jar
round cosmetic cotton pads
all natural face soap, I use this
organic grape seed oil
organic tea tree oil
measuring cup
bowl and spoon

In a bowl, combine one small squirt of face soap, one tablespoon of grape seed oil and 3/4 cup of water. Stir until incorporated. Grape seed oil is rich in vitamin E :)

I then added 7 drops of tea tree oil, which is great for skin and helps with acne.

Stuff the mason jar with the cotton pads. The pour the mixture into the jar. Store in a cool place and use often! Excellent moisturizing capabilities.

  1. This is great! I have been wanting to make my own makeup remover for a while now. I'm still looking for a method without any soap, but this is a great start :)

    Thank you for sharing at the Friday Favorites linky party!
