Makeup removers are nothing but a solution of water and oil that’s why all makeup removers suggest you to shake the bottle before using it. Oil and water helps in loosening the makeup particles and helps in removing all waterproof make up easily. The oil glides on your skin surface and removes the makeup particles.

Note – Remember while cleaning your eyes, put the cotton pad dipped in makeup remover over your eyes for few seconds. Pat the cotton pad lightly on eyes and then swipe to remove makeup.

People use baby oils in their makeup removers but I am not a fond of baby oils in makeup removers as they are made of vegetable oil and it’s lightly fragrant which is not good for your eyes in my belief. Olive oils are safe and are organic.

  • Extra virgin olive oil – 3 tablespoon
  • Johnson & Johnson top to toe wash or any other baby wash (no tears) – 1 tablespoon
  • Distilled water to fill the bottle – 100 ml
  • Mixing bowl and spoon
  • Empty container


  1. Take distilled water in a mixing bowl. You can also take boiled water. Distilled water doesn’t contain any minerals which mean less chances of any contamination.
  2. Now in this distilled water mix top to toe wash until it’s dissolved. You may also use baby shampoo, since its safe for eyes with no tear quality.
  3. Now add extra virgin olive oil and mix well.
  4. And store it in an empty and clean container.
