Make-up remover pads are amazing. When we’re not in the mood for taking off our make-up (basically every night, even though we know we should always take our make-up off), they’re the first thing we reach for because they make the chore of getting make-up off a breeze. They’re so mess free and easy to use that we may or may not have even used them while lying in bed.
The one thing we don’t like about make-up remover pads is that buying them can get expensive. That’s why we’re incredibly excited about this step-by-step we’ve put together so we can all make our own make-up remover pads and use as many as we like without feeling guilty.
The ingredients in these DIY make-up remover pads are easy to get hold of and inexpensive, and making them shouldn’t take longer than 5 minutes — yes, really. Plus the pads get rid of the toughest makeup, but they’re still gentle on skin.
