    Yeh, I totally agree with removing eye makeup with oil. SO easy. I use a Japanese cleansing oil though, it is good for the whole face as it’s not greasy, washes off kinda like cleansing milk.

      Hi Nastya,

      What’s the name of the Japanese cleansing oil you use? I use castor oil for my face but I’m looking for an oil that’s less abrasive to my eyes as I remove the makeup. Thank you! 🙂

            I use castor oil and olive oil to cleanse and remove makeup. After I cleanse my face, I get a warm washcloth and I put it on my face until it’s no longer warm. The oil gets absorbed by your skin making it look glowing and moisturized. Read this blog, it’ll explain it better. It helped my adult acne and oily complexion. http://www.healthydiaries.com/2012/07/17/how-i-improved-my-skin-acne-scaring-overall-complexion/ Good luck!! 🙂

    I LOVE coconut oil. For those who have allergies or sensitivities to coconut oil, should try babassu oil. It’s molecular structure is very similar, but it doesn’t leave you as greasy. I must admit, I’ve slept in my makeup, once or twice, and I felt so guilty. I recently read somewhere, that every night you sleep in your makeup, your skin ages two days. Lol! Anyway, thanks for the post. I love it, as usual. ♥

However, I have felt like I was doing damage to my eyes with these makeup remover wipes and was concerned that I may be doing more harm than good. Although that didn’t keep me from doing it. Now…seeing you use coconut oil (which I just bought a whole tub because I heard it is good to put on feet), makes me want to try it and it seems so much healthier. Thank you!!

    I LOVE using coconut oil for makeup remover- I actually keep a big jar of it on my bathroom counter! 😀 Something else it’s really good for is shaving cream. What I do is rub it all over my legs, let it soak in for 5+ minutes while doing a pre-shower dance around your room or something, then jump in the shower- it is THE most moisturizing shaving experience, and your skin still feels hydrated for a looong time! The nice thing is the oil clings to the skin, so you don’t have to worry about it washing off right away (I felt like I never got any bang out of my buck with foamy shaving creams). And in my experience with coconut oil, I get a closer shave too. You guys HAVE to try it if you haven’t already!! Just beware if you let pets wander around your rooms- some dogs like to try licking it off 😛

      +1 on the shaving!

      Even smoother shave: mix in a palmful of regular old sugar with your oil and scrub it around! Then just shave right over the sugar and rinse (with only water, no soap; It will wash away and dissolve the sugar but not the oil). LUSCIOUS. Pat dry.

      Works with olive oil too …but then you won’t smell like vacation.

      You can do that on hands too. Anyone who’s ever done Mary Kay Satin Hands knows how awesome a greasy scrubby ‘sperience can make your grody crackedy hands. 🙂

      ps if you do shave with it, PLEASE BE CAREFUL – don’t slip.
      pps you’ll think you’re too greasy when you’re first done using coconut oil anywhere. Leave it for like TWO MINUTES and I swear to you it stinks in. Don’t rub off all the awesome!

    Love, love love using coconut oil to remove makeup – it’s actually the only thing I use to remove all my makeup, not just eye products.
    My only advice is to be careful rubbing it off with a cotton pad. The repeated stretching of that delicate skin could cause wrinkles in the long run. I take a washcloth, run it under hot water, wring it out, and press it to me face without rubbing it. It removes the makeup and works great! Plus it feels great – kind of like a mini sauna for your face! 🙂

Otherwise my local supermarket carries it at a large mark up. Most night’s I start by washing my face with my regular cleanser and then I switch to coconut oil to get deep down into the mascara removal and skin cleaning. BTW, I want to ask you Cara in a previous posting, the one of your sister-in-law’s Monday Make Over you highlighted her hair with something for blonds, what do you recommend for us brunettes so we can make our hair pop with that natural shine? I’d love you for some help as I am on a tight budget and still wanting to look great. luv ya

    What are your thoughts on Vaseline?? I’ve been using that since I was a teenager! Now i feel I must try this!! Not to mention you’re adorable. I’m going to have another glass of wine…I know you wouldn’t try to stop me! 😉

    I did this last night, and it worked WAYYYY better than wipes. And it’s cheaper, too! I have a huge tub of it at home, so I am a happy camper.

    BTW, I have been using Wen for a week now, based on your recommendation. I am loving it so far! I am someone who washes every day. I need a trim (it’s really way past time!), but after that, my hair will be great!

    I am new to your site. I found you via Amy Rhodes. (I’m so glad you met her because we started talking about blogs and the Click Retreat and you came up. Yeah for me! How have I never seen this before?) Anyhow, I love this. I am having trouble finding an eye makeup remover I like. I can’t wait to try this out tonight. Thanks!

    Sorry if this is redundant, I didn’t read through all of the replies…this is a fab idea for those who DON’T have eyelash extensions. The oil will breakdown the bonds of the adhesive sooner and they won’t last as long. Just something to keep in mind : ) Happy Friday!

    I absolutely LOVE using coconut oil to remove eye makeup!! Works like magic! I’ve been doing this for a while now and not only do you moisturize, but your lashes get a slight growth boost too. 🙂 Gotta love coconut oil.

    Belle has always been my favorite princess for two reasons 1. She was the only Princess who looked like me. Growing up I always felt that blond/ blue eyed was the standard of beauty until Belle and 2. She loved to read. I almost died when I first saw that library. Seriously, my heaven! My daddy also took me to see the movie!

    Eye makeup remover is so expensive. I found another DIY recipe I really like. I save an empty eye makeup remover bottle and fill it with 1 part baby shampoo, 1 part baby oil, and 1 part water. Shake really well and appy to cotton balls to remove eye makeup. It works really well. I don’t like that vaseline-type feel so this works really well for me too!

    Caution when using coconut oil as eye make up remover. It clogs your tear ducts and causes eye dryness. My cousin now has to use eye drops for 2 months to unclog her tear ducts due to using coconut oil as an eye makeup remover. She was advised to use non oil based eye make up remover.

    I use the coconut oil to remove my makeup, but I follow up with face wash. The coconut oil doesn’t sting, but it does make my vision pretty blurry. Which I find SUPER annoying. Just a tip to make it easier to use the coconut oil (especially for those of us who live in cold climates). Scrape the coconut oil out of the jar into a bowl and mix on med-high speed with a hand mixer until smooth and fluffy. Whipping it gives it the best texture. Much easier than trying to rub hard little blobs of coconut oil on your face. P.S. I love your raccoon face!
