I love these reusable bamboo facial pads because they come in a convenient cotton wash bag. At the end of the week I simply pop all the dirty bamboo pads back in their bag and straight into the washing machine. I have two packs of bamboo facial pads that I alternate between each week, so there are always clean ones ready to go whilst the others are in the wash.
DIY HOMEMADE MAKEUP REMOVER
Makes: 30 bottles of makeup remover!
I absolutely love this DIY makeup remover because it’s super easy to make and effective when removing foundation, mascara etc. There are only three ingredients in this recipe (in addition to the water), and each one packs a pretty little punch when it comes to looking after my skin.
What you’ll need:
- 1 teaspoon fractionated coconut oil
- 1/2 teaspoon castile liquid soap
- 2 drops pure frankincense essential oil
- fill with boiled water, cooled
- Place the fractionated coconut oil, castile soap and frankincense essential oil into pump bottle.
- Fill with cooled boiled water.
- Use 2-4 pumps per wipe.
BREAKDOWN OF INGREDIENTS
Fractionated Coconut Oil – leaves the skin feeling super soft and not greasy. It has anti-fungal properties, which makes it a very effective oil to use on the skin.
Castile Liquid Soap – the castile liquid soap is naturally hydrating and is good for sensitive, irritated, oily or acne-prone skin.
Frankincense Essential Oil – by adding frankincense essential oil, not only does it give the makeup remover a calming scent, it also helps strengthen and improve skin tone, and defend against blemishes and bacteria. The fractionated coconut oil also helps the frankincense essential oil to better absorb into the skin. Tea tree essential oil is a great additional oil to add to help cleanse acne-prone skin.
Bamboo Facial Pads – bamboo facial pads are soft, help to lift the foundation, mascara etc from the skin, and are much more economical and environmentally friendly than the one-use store-bought cotton pads.
