Makeup is one of my favorite things! I love getting ready everyday. Seriously, y’all, I really enjoy painting my barn and putting my face on. But then when it comes the time of day to remove makeup…well that’s a different story!
I used to do this thing where I’d go to sleep without taking my makeup off. My young and dumb days, I guess you could call it. I’d always have breakouts and look like a raccoon with black circles. I don’t like using coconut oil to remove eye makeup. I know lots of people swear by it, but I’m not a fan. It always gets in my eyes, and then I have foggy eye syndrome, and that’s why I got interested in skincare, so I found an esthetician school near me to teach me about skincare and more. Those who have sensitive skin or prone to acne may need to use special make up products like this Foundation for Acne from Oxygenetix.
Thanks to E-cloth, I have a way to easily remove makeup every night, TOXIN-FREE!
The best part about E-cloth is that it only needs water to be effective. I use this to wash my face and take off all my makeup, but it works especially well for eye makeup. And this product is such a bargain – only $10 from Milk-Allergy Mom and with free shipping! You wash the E-cloth out with mild soap and water after each use and then I throw it in with my towels once a week. Super simple and I absolutely love it.
After I wash my face with water and E-cloth, I give my face a quick swipe over with one of my homemade makeup remover pads. These pads are simply made with water, coconut oil, witch hazel and essential oils – whatever combination of essential oils you prefer for your face. I don’t even need to exfoliate or moisturize after using these pads!
When I use these makeup remover pads everyday, my skin looks so great!
And always remember, if you want to use oils or other healthy, more natural alternatives, you have to keep them where you can see them! Otherwise, it’s out of sight, out of mind.

Makeup Remover Pads
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp fractionated coconut oil (or sweet almond)
1 tbsp witch hazel
4 drops essential oils (your choice, but I prefer Frankincense and Lavender)

Shake water, coconut oil, witch hazel, and essential oils in a small jelly jar or something similar. Add cotton rounds slowly so it doesn’t overflow and round have a chance to absorb liquid. Use!
