Need a more effective eye makeup remover that won’t cost you a ton? Look no further than your own home. All of the following ideas were tested by Carleyy from Instructables. See how some of these ideas work for you!

  1. No-Tears Baby Shampoo: if you don’t already have some of this stuff for your child’s use, you can get a bottle for less than $2 in most cases. Add a drop to a cotton pad or swab to remove eye makeup.
  2. Hair Conditioner: use what you already have in your shower! A dab of conditioner should do the trick well.
  3. Petroleum Jelly: put a small amount on your finger (or cotton swab or pad) and use to gently remove eye makeup.
  4. Vegetable Oil Medley: mix together equal parts of olive oil, canola oil and castor oil to create a great eye makeup remover.
