DIY Makeup Remover

This tutorial guides you in making your own makeup remover using a mason jar, grapeseed oil, witch hazel, Castille soap, essential oil, distilled water and cotton rounds. The ingredients are mixed together to create a natural and effective makeup remover solution that is easy to store and use

What you need

8-ounce mason jar

Grapeseed Oil

Witch Hazel 

Castille Soap

Essential Oil (mine was lavender from amazon)

Distilled Water (I just made my own by boiling water and letting it sit)

Cotton Rounds (mine were from dollar tree)

Spoon to stir with



Now that you have all of your ingredients and supplies ready, it’s time to get started making your own DIY makeup remover. Making your own beauty products not only saves you money but also gives you the satisfaction of knowing exactly what you’re putting on your skin.

Begin by adding 4 tablespoons of grapeseed oil into the 8-ounce mason jar. Grapeseed oil is a light and non-greasy oil that is gentle on the skin and will help remove makeup without leaving a greasy residue.

Next, add 10 drops of essential oil. The essential oil of your choice will not only add a pleasant aroma but also provide additional benefits for your skin, depending on the oil you choose. Lavender oil is a popular choice for its calming and soothing properties.

After the essential oil, add 1 tablespoon of witch hazel. Witch hazel is a natural astringent that helps cleanse the skin, removes dirt and makeup, and soothes irritated skin.

Next, add 2 tablespoons of Castille soap, and fill the rest of the jar with distilled water. Mix the ingredients thoroughly to ensure they are well combined.

Finally, slowly add the cotton rounds until they are soaked in the solution. You should be able to fit about 25 cotton rounds in your jar.

Now that you’ve completed the recipe, it’s time to start using your new makeup remover. Simply remove one cotton round from the jar and gently swipe over your face to remove any makeup or dirt. You will love how soft and refreshed your skin feels after using this gentle and effective DIY makeup remover.

Making your own beauty products is not only affordable but also allows you to customize the ingredients to suit your specific skin needs. With just a few simple ingredients, you can easily make your own DIY makeup remover and start enjoying healthy and radiant skin.
