Simple Homemade Eye Makeup Remover

After seeing a recipe for homemade makeup remover on the Green Beauty Guide Blog, I decided to make my own version with the ingredients we had on hand. I typically use coconut oil to remove my eye makeup, but I’m almost out of my current stash…so trying something new seemed appropriate.

This makeup remover is super simple, and it gets the job done!  It doesn’t leave quite as much of an oily residue as coconut oil does, which is nice.

To make this product, I used:

  • 1 oz of green tea
  • 1 oz of grapeseed oil (you could probably use olive oil if you don’t have grapeseed!)
  • 1/2 oz of vegetable glycerin

I simply funneled the above ingredients into an empty bottle I had lying around. The bottle has a pump, which is especially convenient for applying only a small amount of the product onto a cloth or cotton ball.

The oil/glycerin and the tea separate, so be sure to shake this product before using it (if you decide to make your own batch)!  I’m keeping my remover in the fridge, as the Green Beauty Guide Blog suggests. : )
