DIY Beauty! Organic Makeup Remover Featuring Whole Foods Products

DIY Beauty Makeup Remover

*press sample*

Imagine being able to produce your own makeup remover anytime you want with all natural, organic ingredients? That dream is now a reality thanks to this recipe! I got with the Whole Foods team to create this DIY beauty recipe

Why DIY?

There’s nothing wrong with makeup remover that you buy from the drugstore or your favorite high-end counter honestly, except maybe the preservatives and the possibility that it’s not doing anything beneficial for your skin. Plus, all makeup removers cannot remove waterproof makeup. This will.

What you need

Organic Makeup Remover

1 Small glass jar. I had trouble finding a tiny jar so, mason jar it is!

1 Measuring spoon

1 small whisk

3 Tablespoons of Aubrey Organics Pure Aloe Vera Gel

1 Tablespoon of Aura Cacia Jojoba Oil

1 Tablespoon of 365 Everyday Value Organic Coconut Oil

If your coconut oil is solid (mine was already liquid because Mississippi):

1. Warm a clean saucepan on very low heat for 60 seconds.

2. Remove the pan from heat and add the coconut oil. Stir well until the coconut oil is liquefied.

3. Add all the ingredients to a clean jar and mix thoroughly

Remove Makeup

This recipe will give you about 2.5 ounces of makeup remover, which will last you about a week. Store in the fridge to keep it fresh. When you are ready to use it, scoop out about a bit and rub between your hands to liquefy. Then massage into your face and around the lash area to remove makeup. Follow up with your normal skin care routine.

    This is just what I needed to find. I really need a remover for waterproof makeup. I have the Body Shop remover but it doesn’t work well with waterproof products. I have everything listed including the mason jar. LOL I will mix this up today!
