Today’s blog is a DIY makeup remover for anyone that dislikes spending unnecessary money. Before reading make sure you follow my blog to get future notifications. 🙂
Every once in awhile I run out of makeup remover. It’s around 9pm and Sephora is closed or I have no money to buy a new remover. I’ve been making a DIY makeup remover that works better then some makeup removers and cost less. I love being able to save money when I can. What I’ve been using is organic coconut oil from the grocery store and Johnson’s baby shampoo. Usually when I use my makeup remover from Sephora some of the makeup ends up in my pores even tho my skin looks clean which causes breakouts.
Take a teaspoon of coconut oil with a hot spoon and place it into your palm. Follow with a few drops of baby shampoo and mix them together into a paste. Rub the paste onto your face in circular motion and rinse. It removes matte lipsticks and even mascara. Repeat this twice and use a warm rag to wipe your face off. It leaves your skin smooth and helps your skin look healthy. I also use a Formula.10.0.6 mask to clean out my pores further.
That’s all for this blog but if you have any questions feel free to ask. Dont forget to follow my social media’s on the side and subscribe. xoxo I hope that this helps.
For those that follow me on snap chat you know that I’ve been testing new skin products and talking about my breakouts. I’ve recently found some products that’s been keeping my skin under control (to a certain extinct).
Normally I have very sensitive, oily and scarred skin with small patches of dry skin. I would normally wash my face and moisturize then go about my day. On a recent haul to Ulta I picked up four items from Formula 10.0.6 while they were buy one get one 50% off. I was able to get my hands on three mask treatments and salicylic acid. Salicylic acid is good for acne and maintaining a flawless surface so this is one of the items I was so hyped to have.
Salicylic acid comes in a clear bottle with orange color. They also have one for sensitive skin but I have extremely sensitive skin and I have no problems using this. I take a cotton ball and clean all over my problem areas with the salicylic acid and it works well for cleaning your pores. It’s supposed to be a deep pore cleaner and it works as such. You’ll immediately see little results in your skin.
Another product that I’ve been using is Formula.10.0.6 mud mask, exfoliate and gel mask . Each of them have a different smell which ranges from coconut, strawberries, yarrow and jojoba. I usually put the mask on after cleaning my pores and let it sit for 15-25 minutes before washing it off with warm water. It helps the texture of my skin and smells delicious. Shea Moisture’s Acne Prone African Black Soap is my holy grail because it has reduced the appearance of dark spots. They aren’t completely gone but they have faded a bit. I’ve used the soap almost everyday but my skin was becoming very dry so try using it every other day. The great thing about all of these products is that they are affordable. Formula 10.0.6 ranges from $4-$8 and the soap is priced differently depending on where you purchase it from but it should never be more than $7.00. The link to the products are below. These products are helping reduce the breakouts but I still have them! If you’re looking for a balance try these items and let me know what happens. xox
