SaturDIY: DIY Nighttime Makeup Wipes
When I first decided to make my own makeup wipes I was less than impressed with the idea.... but something in me told me to try it. I was really unsure because I didn't think they would work as well as my drugstore makeup remover chemical filled wipes. This is going to sound silly, but I really thought they wouldn't do anything except swish the makeup around my face.
When I use the wipes I DIY'd, my face has never felt cleaner. There is no gross residue that my previous store bought wipes would give me. Yeah, I still want to wash my face, but we all know we are supposed to do that anyway after removing our makeup.
4 TBSP Witch Hazel
2 TBSP Carrier Oil (I used coconut oil)
4 drops Peace and Calming Essential Oil
10 drops Lavender Essential Oil
10 drops Essential Beauty Serum
Cotton pads (Enough to fill up the container you use)
Let's talk about the oils for a sec.
Peace and Calming has done a world of good for my face regarding balancing and evening. Lavender is just a skin savior in general. Plus, both are calming which is great for the evening/nighttime. The Essential Beauty Serum is so good for dry skin. It smells good too! It smells like clove to me which I love! Your skin will drink this up, you'll love it.
Wisk ingredients together and put the pads in the liquid allowing time for the pads to soak up the liquid. Rotate the pads so the entire pad is saturated. Store in a glass container.
Pull out one cotton pad and start wiping your face. Super simple, people. Be careful around your eyes.
Hope you love them as much as I do.
