How-To: DIY Makeup Remover

by Adri on December 22, 2011

I just watched a great video from online makeup tutorial guru Michelle Phan. She makes her own makeup remover using olive oil and aloe water, so easy to put together and great results!

My roommate Stephanie has used a home made face wash with olive oil and she swears by it. I’ve always been afraid to try something like that because I thought it would be too much of a mess, but Michelle’s easy to make and use remover might just be my gateway to trying soothing homemade facial products.

Stephanie’s recipe:

  • 1/3 Castor Oil
  • 2/3 Olive Oil
  • Splash of Tea Tree Oil

She just keeps a small kitchen oil bottle with pour spout on her counter and uses it every night before bed. Her concoction was inspired by Kim of Walk with Me and is based off of the Oil-Cleansing Method from Simple Mom.


Do any of you use homemade cleansers or moisturizers? Care to share your tips?

Wow! I really want to go out and buy some aloe vera water now, though I’m nervous because of the oil factor. This is pretty cool.

I’ve done something similar using 1/4 c olive oil, ten drops tea tree oil and ten drops oil of rosemary. I just store it in a pump bottle in the shower and make a new batch when I run out. :D
