I don’t usually wear a lot of make up but I do wear mascara every day. Finding a good make-up remover has always been a challenge. I had to try many types until I found one that actually removed my mascara so when I decided it was time to find a toxic-free alternative I was worried I wouldn’t be able to find one that actually worked.
I remember reading somewhere that Coconut Oil can remove your make-up. To be honest, I had my doubts and didn’t even try itbut a couple of months ago I decided to give it a shot. I put some Coconut Oil on a piece of cotton and started rubbing my eyes. To my surprise it removed all of my mascara. All of it. I couldn’t believe it.
I started using it to remove both my mascara and face make-up and it worked like a charm. It also left my skin feeling really nice and soft. I don’t even clean the oil residue that’s left over after I clean my make-up since the coconut oil does wonders for my skin. It’s like having a cleaner and moisturizer in one. However if the only residue bothers you it can be washed off with soapy water.
I have been using Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil to remove my make up for over 3 years now and I’m very pleased with it. It’s non-toxic, organic and good for your skin. Plus I don’t have to worry about my kids getting a hold of it since it’s even edible.
Have you tried using coconut oil as your make-up remover? How do you like it?
