I posted the Strawberry Facial Scrub a few months ago and now I have made my own makeup remover.
Since I was chiquita, my mom used to use Witch Hazel on her face to freshen up.This has been known to reduce blemishes and spots, shrink bags under eyes and tighten pores. She always maintained a bottle of it in the fridge. It was so refreshing!! So I have kept using it as well.
Extra Virgin olive oil is one of the most nutritious items you can have in your kitchen. Especially if you use it on the skin. You can use Organic Coconut oil instead of the Olive oil, just make sure it is Virgin and unrefined. I decided to mix both of these two miracle potions and tried it for a month. I will never go back to using expensive disposable makeup remover pads that are filled with perfumes and other "stuff" I really do not know about!!

Basically, all you got to do is mix some of the EVOO (or Coconut oil) in a container with the witch hazel.
Oil and water will not mix, even though I tried whisking it slowly like chefs do to do dressings. This is not important though, you will shake the container with the two ingredients vigorously every time before you use.
Pour the Make-Up Remover on a nice big cotton ball.
Start with your eyes since usually is the area that we apply more makeup, including mascara.
Let the makeup remover settle for a few seconds so its starts to break down your makeup and then swipe.
Do this to your whole face until cottons come out clean.
Since Witch Hazel is an astringent it will mostly cut out the greasiness of the olive oil and you will end with a refreshed and moisturized face...
Do you have any favorite makeup remover?
Do you dare to try this one or do you feel skeptical about it?
