These DIY Makeup Remover Pads are a cinch to make and will save you a bundle!
Confession: I’m not the greatest when it comes to skin care. I don’t always use moisturizer, I rarely use toner, and I almost never take my make up off at night. You might ask why then I decided to make these DIY Makeup Remover Pads – I’ll tell you, it’s for my sister Kate, queen of black eyeliner. She’s partial one brand of make up remover cloths, which, though expensive, she swears by.

I wanted to see if these DIY Makeup Remover Pads would work as well as her pricy cloths so I decided to give it a go. These are soft and gentle on your skin, but still do a great job of removing make-up. My skin felt, fresh and clean afterward. The best part? They cost less than $1 per jar to make!
How to Make DIY Makeup Remover Pads
- Wide Mouth Pint Mason Jar
- 1 ½ cups water
- 2 tablespoons baby shampoo (no-tears such as Johnson & Johnson)
- ¼ teaspoon baby oil
- Large round cotton pads
- (Optional – a couple drops of geranium or lavender essential oil, both of which are good for your skin and a 1/2 teaspoon of Vitamin E Oil)
- Mix the water, shampoo and baby oil in a measuring cup.
- Pour a little bit into the canning jar and place about 5 or 6 pads on top. Gently press down until the pads absorb the liquid.
- Continue adding liquid and pads until the jar is full. I used about 40 pads.
