DIY eye makeup remover recipe

use California Baby body wash
to make your DIY eye makeup remover
Since March, when I went on bed rest, I'm going to admit to you some things I'm not proud of. One item: I really haven't done much with my hair other than try to go without using shampoo. That is an ongoing saga -- one that I almost gave up on. I'm down to using no shampoo but clean my hair using 1 tablespoon of baking soda and 2 tablespoons of water every other day. Most of the time, my hair is shiny but does still have greasy days.

Another item I'm not proud of ... I really don't care to put make up on. It really all started out this way because I couldn't stand for long periods of time. Then I had the baby and I used the excuse of being sleep deprived. So what is now my excuse? I guess I realized that I don't really need make-up. I will put on mascara a couple times of week when I have meetings but that's about it. What leads me to the next story.

Last Friday, I took the kids to pre-school and day care and met a colleague for coffee to talk about some content writing I was doing that involved the company she worked for. When I got there, I realized I was not wearing any make-up and was super worried. "What would Cathy think of me?" I thought to myself. She didn't say anything and then I apologized about not wear make-up.

Cathy admitted that she hated taking it off mascara and that sometimes the remover she used hurt and stung her eyes. I then remember that I never posted this cool recipe I discovered for DIY eye make-up remover that I made almost 18 months ago. I ran out in February and I haven't made a new batch.

Here you go Cathy ... visit this site and make your own tear free eye makeup remover. Instead of Johnson and Johnson, I use California Baby.
