Natural Makeup Remover – Week 3

 

 

Well, this week has been the sunflower oil week.  After using the coconut oil last week I must admit to being a little apprehensive about this as the coconut oil was so fab.

I’ve just being using the bottle straight out of my oils rack, rather than decanting as it was quite low.  The first thing I noticed was how it soaked straight through the pad, just like a conventional makeup remover, meaning I would be using more over the week.  It felt messy.  On first look it seemed to work as well as the coconut oil, but when I checked there were still tiny bits of mascara round the eye.  I think, because it soaks straight into the pad, rather than sitting on the top like the coconut oil, then more of the oil is needed. The extra rubbing made my eye tender at the time, but OK later on.  The skin was not as ‘baby soft’ as the previous week.

This bottle was £1.10 for 1 litre from Tesco, although I would usually shop in Aldi so it would be cheaper still.

Next up is the olive oil.

Natural Makeup Remover Experiment – Week 2

So it’s the end of week 1 – organic coconut oil week. I’ve not had makeup on everyday, and the above picture was taken on the day where I had the most makeup on, so still not a lot, but plenty for me 😉. I reckon I used less than a third of a teaspoon’s worth of the coconut oil on my pad to remove that days makeup. Not much at all!

My eyes haven’t felt dry, but I’ve not used it everyday so that’s helped. The skin underneath them actually feels quite soft. I love the fact that the oil is solid, then there’s no excessive soaking of the oil into the pad first.  I’d always seem to use too much of the Boots one as it soaks through so much.  The pads washed perfectly fine, although I do wash as 60 degrees when I do all my whites.  I don’t mind the smell either…not sure I’ll be saying that every week 😉

The jar, from Aldi, was £2.29 for 300 ml.

In short, I’ve loved using the coconut oil.  Not sure I want to switch 😉 but next up is the sunflower oil.
