None of this should come as a surprise to you if you've been reading the posts and comments over the last few entries, but based on someone else's comment and my own research, you can use coconut oil to remove your eye (or any) makeup. Since I only wear mineral makeup on my face, I'm not too concerned about getting that off with the honey facial wash, but I have been using an Estee Lauder eye makeup remover to get my eye makeup off since I don't really want to get honey in my eyes.
The last few nights I've been trying out using coconut oil as a makeup remover and, holy smokes people!, it works super fantastical! Way, waaaaay, better than the commercial product and heaps more natural and inexpensive. I don't have to worry about what's in it and did I say that it's way more effective? I take a little bit and rub it on my eyelid and my body temperature melts it into a liquid (if it's not already) and it's great for taking off mascara and even waterproof MAC kohl eyeliner. And I don't have to rub and scrub to remove it, it's off in seconds.
You just need to be careful not to overdo it otherwise you'll get a little bit in your eye and your vision is a little fuzzy for a spell, but I'd rather have coconut oil in my eye than who knows what is in the commercial products. It doesn't sting or anything, it's just annoying.
If I keep this up, I'll be able to eat my entire beauty routine! I also have some other tips to report with the coconut oil, but I want to make sure I'm not fabricating results I'm having with it since they seem rather incredulous and whatnot, so stay tuned.
What do you use to remove makeup?
