Homemade Makeup Remover

This homemade makeup removing pads are so easy and will take you less than 5 minutes to make. Once you gather all the supplies, these will prove to be significantly cheaper than makeup wipes you will buy in the store. 

Not only that but they are toxic free, no chemicals, and synthetic fragrances. If you don’t wear makeup, these are still for you. They leave your face feeling smooth and refreshed. 


  • 4oz glass jar
  • Cotton rounds
  • 2 Tbsp Distilled Water
  • 1 Tbsp Witch Hazel (I use the Thayers brand)
  • 2 Tbsp Fractionated Coconut Oil
  • 4 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
  • Optional: Frankincense or Tea Tree Essential Oil
  • Optional: 1/4 tsp Pure Castille Soap (I use Dr. Bronner’s- Make sure you get the baby unscented)


Mix all ingredients together 4 oz. glass jar. Place cotton rounds inside and close the lid. Flip upside down to make sure all rounds are saturated fully.

When using, take a single round out and be use to blot out any of the extra liquid before applying to face. 

I use all Young Living Essential Oils. To learn more about these, check out my Essential Oils page HERE.

  • Is there anything sweeter than little baby feet poking out of a sleep gown? 💙
This gown and hat set and matching lovey is from @themotherbabybond is literally the softest piece of clothing Beau has. The best part is it has magnetic closures; talk about easy 3am diaper changes! Their shop has sooo many options and prints! Go support the sweetest mother/daughter duo 💕
  • While I love precious posed photos, these are the kinds of photos I cherish the most. The ones that capture us just being us. Real life...Teagan wanted nothing to do with pictures that day and of course, Beau, the milk monster wanted to eat but all of that ended up resulting in this moment. I’m so grateful for @celticgrayphotography always being kind and patient with us and capturing the best of us!
  • Oh Beau, you’ve completely stolen our hearts 💙 #gerberphotosearch2018 #beaumontgomeryg
  • One of Teagan’s school pictures. I cannot take this. Yes, I’m crying 😭 she’s so beautiful and growing up right before my very eyes! 😍
  • Currently in the newborn haze. I won’t lie, a lot of days I miss lunch or find myself right here eating lunch on the floor keeping a newborn content while trying to entertain a toddler. Luckily, @ReadyPacFoods makes it super easy for me to eat while on the go and also get a healthy option in with these Bistro Single-Serve Salads. #WePackedYouLunch #sponsored
  • Sometimes I just stare at him and want to cry because I know this season of life is going to go so fast. Stay little my sweet Beau 💙 #beaumontgomeryg
  • I promise she really does love him! Lots of adjustments happening over here but we are all surviving one meltdown at a time 💕💙 #gaskellrascals
  • One week as a family of 4 and nothing has ever felt so right ☺️ #gaskellrascals 📷: @celticgrayphotography
