Natural Makeup Remover

April 20, 2015 by Jenny Melrose

Once you turn 30 I think a lot changes.  A ton changed for me since my first daughter was born on my thirtieth birthday.  So not only did I hit the big 3-0, but I also quickly learned to survive on little sleep.  Little sleep meant that I had to start wearing a bit more makeup then I did in the past.  I was an athlete through high school and college so I rarely wore makeup and continued the trend through my twenties.  I couldn’t be bothered.  I noticed the dark circles under my eyes and realized it was time to be bothered.  With wearing makeup came the tedious need for makeup remover that didn’t burn my eyes and didn’t leave my skin feeling dried out.  I couldn’t find the right product so I decided to make my own Natural Makeup Remover that cleansed as well as moisturized,  while helping with anti-aging.

You’ll need some basic supplies that you can find at your grocery store or off of Amazon {so you’ll find some affiliate links}.  Plus, you’ll need our absolute favorite Young Living Essential Oils.  I didn’t understand the benefits of essential oils until recently and I have to admit that I’m infatuated with them.  I love how they help maintain the health of my family.  We love them so much that we want to share our love by offering you an amazing April deal to help get you started.  We literally use the oils in our April promotion everyday and I just know you will too.  Plus, the package includes tons of support and valuable resources to better understand essential oils so be sure to check out the April promotion HERE.

As well as the Young Living essential oils of Frankincense, Carrot Seed and Lavender, you’ll also need: Grapeseed oil, cotton rounds and a medium glass jar.  In a medium bowl add 1/4 cup of grapeseed oil and 10 drops of each essential oil.  Add the cotton rounds to the glass jar {I fit 15 rounds in my jar, which gets me through two weeks} and then pour the grapeseed mixture over the rounds.  Store the jar in a dark cabinet so that the oils don’t evaporate and lose their benefits.  You also want to make sure to purchase a glass jar because plastic is porous and the oils can sneak into the plastic.  This combination not only smells amazing, but it gets the job done without burning or drying out my skin.

    What is the purpose of the Carrot Seed in this DIY? I have Frank & Lavender, is there any other substitute I can use in place of Carrot Seed? Also, does this work for waterproof mascara? I can’t wait to try this out!

    It works well on all skin types; dry, dull, mature, blotchy and oily skin. The
    fatty acids in the oil help keep skin healthy and prevent early aging.
    Rosehip oil is extracted from a wild rose bush and has been used for centuries in South America.
