Easy three ingredient make up remover

This one is inspired by Marie at Humblebee & Me, although her version is slightly different and calls for Olivem 3000 instead of Polysorbate 80  ( although she does mention the polysorbate as a possible workaround). I didn’t have Olivem 3000, but I did have a bachelorette and two weddings in one week to attend and was in need of a way to get off the eye make up that goes along with those kinds of shenanigans and events. This works genius. I also use witch hazel in mine, where she does not. 

Here’s the recipe:

For a 1 oz bottle (which will last awhile unless you wear tons of eye make up daily), mix 

6g fractionated coconut oil

6g polysorbate 80 

12g witch hazel 

That’s it! You can measure directly into the bottle with a funnel if you tare between items and shake well once it’s capped. I use waterproof eyeliner from MAC and mascara I make myself or my waterproof Benefit brand and it came off with very little scrubbing in any case. Shake well before every use, and you will probably want to wash and moisturize your face after using. 

Happy making!
