I have been using this for years to remove my eye makeup; it came from a magazine and is quite gentle, easy to make and nonirritating on the eyes.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup baby shampoo (I use Johnson's and Johnson's original "no more tears" baby shampoo)
  • 34 cup distilled water


  1. Place the baby shampoo and water in a small bottle and shake to distribute ingredients.
  2. Pour some remover onto a cotton ball and sweep gently over lids and eyelashes to remove makeup.
  3. Rinse eyes with water to clean.

Great! I'm so happy to have found this, since I loathe paying big bucks for premade removers in the store. I used a store-brand baby shampoo and have no problems with any burning in my eyes. It removes the make-up quickly and easily. I've told many people about this!

A warning about Johnson's Baby Shampoo... I don't know if it is still true, but back in the 1980's to early 1990's this Shampoo was the most Caustic shampoos on the market. (Caustic: Capable of burning, corroding, dissolving, or eating away by chemical action.) This shampoo is/was known as gentle, but to make it "no more tears" it contains/contained the main dirivative of Novacaine in the ingredients. Buyer Beware!
