In my post Makeup Remover and Shower Cleaner, I gave a recipe for a make up remover, and I mentioned that I was going to add more olive oil to it. I added enough oil to make the total amount 1/4 tsp. I got the same results, the eyeliner came off great but the majority of the mascara stayed. I think this recipe is a little to watery. I wear waterproof mascara, so I need something a little stronger. So I searched the internet for other make up remover recipes. I didn't really find much. Some people said they used just oil, while others said they used just baby shampoo. So I got to thinking what if I just made my own recipe with more oil and shampoo and less water. So I did and I think it works great!
I had a 3 fl. oz. travel container with a flip top lid that I used to store my make up remover. I added 1 oz.( 2 Tbsp.) olive oil, 1 oz. (2 Tbsp.) baby shampoo (tear free), and 1 oz. (2 Tbsp.) water. Shake it up and you are good to go! I tested it on my arm, I put eyeliner and mascara on my arm, let them dry, then used the make up remover to remover them. And what do you know, they both came off much easier and cleaner than the other remover. The real test of course is how well does it come off your eyes. I have been using it for the past couple of days and it does the job. I'm very excited that I found something that is quick and easy to remove even waterproof mascara! Hope this works for you as well as it did for me!
