Here we are describing the different Recipes for Homemade Eye Makeup Remover, which can take the mystery out of skincare. Eye makeup is difficult to take off, but this Homemade Eye Makeup Remover use for eye makeup. Homemade Eye Makeup Remover is easy to make at home with a few ingredients and is the perfect alternative to pricey commercial products.
Homemade Eye Makeup Remover Recipe
Recipe #1 – 50/50 Witch Hazel & Oil
– 1/4 cup witch hazel (alcohol free preferred)
– 1/4 cup oil (your choice)
This one was the first recipe I tried. My initial thought upon mixing it up was, “Isn’t this going to sting my eyes?”
The first time I tried it, it didn’t.
The second time–stinging. Not good.
Recipe #2 – Water, Vitamin E Capsules & Oil
Seemed like a good recipe, but it’s basically just water and oil with a little added nutrition for your eyes. And since we don’t take Vitamin E currently I felt I couldn’t justify having myself or my readers purchase vitamin E oil just for making eye makeup remover.
Recipe #3 – Water, Castille Soap, & Olive Oil
– 1 cup water
– 1/4 tsp castille soap
– 1 tsp olive oil
This one plain stung and didn’t work well. I had to rub at my eyes several times to get my makeup off. So this is a no-go for the delicate eye area.
Recipe #4 – Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Almond Oil
– 4 Tbsp EVOO
– 3 Tbsp almond oil
Well, this one I really didn’t have to try either since it’s basically just the same as my current method – straight oil. Just with different oils.
I love these oils but I need something different to take the makeup off my eyes without too much greasiness.
Recipe #5 – Water, Castille Soap, and Oil
– 1 cup water
– 1 1/2 Tbsp castille soap
– 1/8 tsp oil
This one, again, didn’t really work and stung somewhat. Stinging and my eyes just don’t go together. And well, if something doesn’t work–it just ummm…doesn’t work.
Recipe #6 – Water & Soap
– 1/2 cup water
– 2 tsp soap
Stinging. Again. And not good results.
So what’s a gal to do when these are the results she gets?
Well, here’s what happened. I came up with a winner that works like a charm and doesn’t sting:
