DIY Jojoba Rose Eye Makeup Remover

diy eye makeup remover

My old eye makeup remover costs $8 for a 4oz bottle. Not a terrible price, considering others can cost $30 or more. But even my relatively inexpensive choice, with all its green tea, chamomile and zero fragrance claims, still contained preservatives and other ingredients so complicated their names required nearly all 26 letters of the alphabet. It’s hard to get away from things like that with mass produced products that sit around for lengthy amounts of time.

This has just four natural ingredients. It works great, it’s probably much better for you, and it saves money. What’s not to like?

Jojoba Rose Eye Makeup Remover:

  • 2 Tbsp Rosewater
  • 2 Tbsp Jojoba Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Vegetable Glycerine
  • 1 Tbsp Aloe Vera

Makes 3oz ($3.53)


Mix ingredients together, and you are done! Shake well before using.

After it is shaken, the color makes it look just like a real lightbulb!

As it settles, the oil floats to the top and creates a cool ombre effect.

The second I saw these cute jars, I’m sure another one also appeared above my head. What could be a better shape for an eye makeup remover container than one reminiscent of the light we use to see?
