My skin is extremely sensitive, and it's always hard to find a makeup remover which doesn't sting or burn my skin, but half the time these sensitive formulas seem to not do a great job at getting all the product off my face. So it's a hard battle between having a great product and stinging skin OR having the nourishment in a makeup remover but waking up with panda eyes the next morning.
I've done a bit of research and tried out different makeup remover ideas, and this one seemed to work the best! As summer is on it's way and our skin is going to need all the moisture it needs, I thought I would share with you this handy DIY which you can make time and time again!
You will need:
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons of baby shampoo
- 13 tablespoons (or one cup) of cold water
- a mason jar
- cotton wool pads
2. Add in your two tablespoons of baby shampoo - then mix these two together until fully combined.
3. Add in your 13 tablespoons of water and mix until fully combined (it should have a lot of movement now, making it pourable!)
4. Fill your mason jar, tupperware or whatever you've managed to dig out of the cupboard with cotton wool pads until they fill the container up to the top. (In the jar I used I got around 13 in there)
5. Pour your mixture into the jar on top of the cotton pads. This will seep through the top pad and the collection around the sides of the pads will be soaked up all around the product you've just created.
6. Leave to soak for 10 minutes and the pads are ready to use. Be sure to use a jar with a lid so the pads won't dry out which means they can last you until the very last one!
Baby shampoo is designed to be delicate to use on babies (hence the name) so it's kind to eyes and gentle on your sensitive skin. This also helps with the clean up of any makeup residue.
