DIY Makeup Remover

I always buy waterproof mascara and then I'm so mad when I can't get it off my lashes after scrubbing my face for an hour. Anyone else have this problem?
I don't wear makeup a lot or a lot of makeup in general. Mostly I stick to the basics... BB cream, mascara, eye shadow and a brow pencil. But occasionally I will go all out with primer, foundation, etc, the works, and that's when I need a good makeup remover.
If you're anything like me not washing your face at night means you have a 99.9% chance of waking up with a pimple. I hardly ever break out but when I do it is always because I didn't wash my makeup off.
Back to business..
I've tried all kinds of makeup removing solutions and none of them work as well as this!
L'oreal, Aveeno and Neutrogena are the brands I would usually go for. No specific reason. They're each about $6 for a pack. (In wipey form) and there's maybe about 20-30 wipes in there? They go fast!
So I got tired of buying them and of course went straight to Pinterest!
Give it try and let me know if you love it as much as I do!

1 cup Warm Water
1/8 tsp Coconut oil/Baby oil
1 1/2 tbsp Baby Shampoo

Yes, there are two oils listed but you only need one. Some people don't want to use baby oil on their face so that's where coconut oil becomes the substitute. Both work. Its just up to preference.

In a small bowl (Pyrex measuring cup works best) add your warm water, then the oil of your choice and the baby shampoo. You'll want to mix these up very well. Try whisking it! The coconut oil should melt. Then pour into your container. I upcycled a bottle i was given in the hospital.
If you're putting them all together in your container, that'll work just fine also. Just make sure to shake it well.
Either way you should shake each time before use. Enjoy!
