Today I’m going to be doing a DIY tutorial for you and what we will be doing is making our own DIY makeup remover pads this is a great alternative for all of those who are using the store-bought ones it’s very simple it’s very easy and a batch I would say probably lasts me between a month to two months it’s it really is has some products in it that work really great I also don’t just use this to remove my makeup I also use it as maybe like a freight a face freshener when I’m feeling kind of blah during the day I’ll just grab one quick wash my face off I also use it at night before I go to bed even if I don’t have any makeup it’s a great way to remove dirt and to make your face feel clean before you get under the sheets so you are going to need five items for this very simple very easy you probably already have at least three of them and to start off we are going to use a coconut oil this is an organic non-gmo I use coconut for a lot of different things and if you would like to see a video about all the things that I like to use coconut oil please let me know I would love to do that for you guys so this is you can find this at the local grocery store.
I do recommend really researching what kind of brands are out there some are better than other and you do want to make sure that it’s coconut oil not coconut butter because they will have a different texture and it will not work as good next is going to be Johnson’s baby head-to-toe body wash you could use a knockoff version of this if you would like I have always used Johnson’s while doing this I usually have a coupon so I just pick a little bottle up and I feel that this works very well next are going to be cotton rounds this is going to be the actual makeup remover pad itself this is a counts and you can do larger amounts that I usually do them a eighty to a hundred is usually how I make a batch this will probably last me about a month maybe a month and a half your next item that you’re going to need is a container I use a ball jar I love I would rather hold things that I’m using on my face as I’m eating in a glass container I’m not big on plastic and I try not to use it when I don’t have to but let’s be real some of us have to use plastic that’s just how it works but for this I do I am able to use a glass jar so I did just go ahead and do this the great thing about this is easy to clean once you’re done so it’s it’s just simple and you can reuse it last but not least you’re going to need about a cup of water now if you do decide to increase the batch like say instead of doing a tea you do like 160 cotton pads you will need to double this recipe so make sure you’re aware of that once you get started.
Okay let’s go ahead and get started with keys like I said these are very easy and very simple so first I’m just gonna go ahead with my empty ball jar and I’m going to put a tablespoon of coconut oil in it and a tablespoon of Johnson’s baby head to toe wash so I’ll go ahead and do that for you and if you can hear my doll’s little feet she loves coconut oil so every time I unscrew here you go Daisy every time i unscrew the lid it’s like she comes swarming to wherever it is that I am in the house what’s a coconut oil because she wants some and yes coconut oil is totally okay for dogs it’s great for their breath their teeth um it’s good for their hair their skin so don’t worry I’m not poisoning my dog but you’re just going to go ahead and put these two products in here and then I’m just gonna actually go ahead and just stick this tablespoon in my cup of water to kind of just soak off those products what you’re going to do I don’t know if you can see this but you are just going to nuke this in the microwave or if you do not have a microwave if you have a stove you’re just gonna nuke this on the stove or the microwave until it is like it’s no longer in the form I’ll go ahead and put some on my finger it’s just like this it’s kind of like a stick cream which is why it’s great for body butters and stuff like that so I’m just gonna go ahead and stick it in my microwave okay so as you can tell now be careful the glass is kind of hot but as you can tell now it is in a liquid form which is exactly what we want okay so I am just going to go ahead and now I’m going to put half of my cup of water in this solution so I will just go ahead and put half of the amount of water into this solution.
Okay so now as you can see my jar is halfway full so all I’m going to do is I’m going to simply just shake this around a little bit or you can stir it but since the coconut oil is warm the water is just going to go ahead and mix in which it is already because it is warm so what you’re going to do next is you’re simply going to take your cotton round and you are going to just take about I don’t know a fourth of the stack if you’re doing a tea like here and you are just going to go ahead and push those down into the coconut water and you are gonna want to just push them down so that they absorb all of the water and you are gonna have excess water in there for now because we do have more cotton pads to put in there so we are just going to continue doing that just gonna keep pushing down and you want to push so that the cotton swabs get that moisture in it because that is going that’s the solution that’s all I put in the solution to be that makeup remover so you just want to make sure your pads get nice and moisture moisturized or nice and moist I know some people don’t like that word so try not to use it but I used it so what get over it now what as you can see it’s getting harder and harder for me to push down so what I like to do is I basically just like to take some of these out and just hold them while I put the rest of them in and then I will simply just put these back on top and if you do have water left you’re more than welcome to go if you feel like you need a little more moisture in your glass that’s perfectly fine so I’m gonna go ahead and do that and put these back in here.
I said I’m just continuing to push these down so that I know that my makeup remover pads are completely emerged and soaking up that coconut baby soap mixture that we made and if you guys love the smell of coconut then you are going to love these if you do not like coconut then these might not be the thing for you but they do work really well okay so now I’m just basically pushing now some of you may have a little excess water and your thing that’s fine you’re more than welcome to dump that out I usually won’t what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna put the lid on and just flip it over a little bit and see if the pads will soak up any more of that moisture that is still in my jar isn’t this fun and super easy we’re almost done can you believe it okay so now that I’ve done that my leftover water is actually gone if you can tell here is how my cotton pads look yours should look about the same and you’re simply when you go to remove your makeup you’re just gonna pull out a pad or two and you’re just gonna wipe and that is all that needs to be done.
