Tried it out Thursday- DIY eye makeup remover

I found this tutorial at adelynSTONE one day for DIY eye makeup remover. So I tried it out.

Here are the ingredients:

1 C water
1½ TBSP Baby Shampoo (tear free)
⅛ TSP Baby Oil (Cocunut Oil or Olive Oil)








I poured mine into my old bottle of remover (and the leftovers into a small glass bowl with a lid.)


I'm pleased with the results.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be sharing this here:

  1. Interesting!! Did it irritate your eyelids? Just wondering, because I have sensitive skin and seems like every eye makeup remover I try they are irritated the next morning.

  4. How interesting, I've never even thought of making my own - and since I just ran out, now would be a good time. Thanks!

  5. Great idea! I always use just straight baby oil and then wash my face with a soap free cleanser, but this sounds so much better and less expensive. I'm going to try it. Thanks for the tip.

  10. I tried it and it worked well on eyeshadow and foundation..However I am having a hard time getting the liquid eyeliner off..Should I add a lil' extra of something maybe? :)

    1. You may want to add a little more of the shampoo for waterproof makeup, but I've read that this version does work for waterproof. Sometimes I have to make an extra swipe on the bottom to get it all off.

    2. I tried it today and it worked fine on pencil eye liner, mascara, and eyebrow shadow :) I am sure it will more difficult on liquid eye liner but adding more shampoo might do the trick. Thanks for sharing!

  11. I just thought I would share with you that baby oil is 100% mineral oil and is not the est product for your skin. Go figure it's meant for babies. Mineral blocks your skin from breathing, another light oil would be a better choice. Cococnut has many great qualities. Good luck.
