READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Munchkin Mama

This works wonders and is so much less expensive than the kind you buy at the store. Very convenient to use, too! Just follow it up with your normal face washing routine.

This worked great. I didn't measure the lotion and I used a q-tip but it worked. I didn't have any eye makeup remover and came here looking for a recipe. I will start using this instead of my regular remover.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 teaspoons lotion (any kind you like, if you have oily skin I would use one that is non-comedogenic so that there's no )
  • 2 cotton balls


  1. Put about 1 t. of lotion onto the lotion on the cotton ball and lightly rub it into the cotton. Gently, with eye closed, rub the cotton onto the eyelid and surrounding areas. Repeat this process with a Q-tip to help remove the makeup residue in hard to reach places.
  2. Repeat with the other eye.
  3. Follow up with your normal skin-cleansing and moisturizing routine.
