Natural make-up remover

I haven't found anything natural that removes my make-up quite like this! It's simple and cost effective to boot!

I use a travel shampoo container and it seems to work great!

1/2 part Witch hazel
1/2 part olive oil

Shake before using and I would recommend to do a quick wipe of the face with a wet facecloth after to remove some of the access oil.We don't want to bake/fry ourselves if we go out into the sun, now do we?

Oil and witch hazel will be separated until you shake.

What it should look like after you shake.

Fun fact about witch hazel from wiki - The bark and leaves are astringent; the extract, also referred to as witch hazel, is used medicinally. Extracts from its bark and leaves are used in aftershave lotions and lotions for treating bruises and insect bites. Witch-hazel helps to shrink and contract blood vessels back to normal size, hence its use as the active ingredient in many hemorrhoid medications. The seeds contain an edible oil. In addition, Witch-hazel is sometimes found as an ingredient in eye drops.
