Pro Tip for makeup removing

Got to many lip balms? Or chapsticks? those plain ones that just sit there because they don't add colour, and worse, don't seem to do what they are meant to do, ie moisturize your lips?
Use them to remove your eyeliner or mascara.
Of course, I'm no expert, but I've been using my all natural lip balm (vaseline works too) to remove my eye makeup. It doesn't irritate the eyes to boot. I've read somewhere that oil removes makeup, so I think this is good!

I'm assuming you're using a new, unused chapstick to do this? Otherwise, I wouldn't use what I put on my lips onto my eyes. You could risk getting an infection since the mouth contains germs.

As an alternative, you can use olive oil or coconut oil. Both work amazingly well at removing eye makeup, even waterproof mascara.

coconut oil! on Mar 03, 2016 @ 11:33 pm

I love coconut oil to remove makeup :) it mosterizes my skin while taking off everything... I found it made my eyelashes look better also ^_^ I usually use the oil then my regular face wash and come out feeling fresh faced :P

No worries! Yes, definitely an unused chapstick. I thought that was clear enough, ahah

I'll be sure to try that! I never knew which oil to use so I just used my chapsticks

Cool! I haven't tried the chapstick method before so it was foreign to me. I would still prefer to use coconut oil since I'm thinking about the chapsticks I'm familiar with and they all have minty or medicine like scents/flavours. Can you recommend any that are good for makeup removal?

Yes that is what I do too, but except I substitute it with coconut oil. The waxy or oily substance kind of breaks down the make up and even waterproof mascara and takes off everything.

coconut oil didn't work for me. makeup still there and left with a greasy face = more washing required.
