I’d sprtized my fully done face with my Ben Nye fix this morning and God knows that stuff requires proper cleansing to remove. So, with no oil based cleanser in the house my eyes wandered over to my homemade Shea butter/ grape seed/coconut oil body/hair oil… hmmm.
I decided that there was no way it could hurt so I scooped some of the mixture out of the jar and applied it liberally to my painted face. The makeup instantly started to dissolve and by the time I wiped it off with a washcloth there was nothing left.
Then I used a foaming cleanser to remove any residue and added a tiny bit of face oil to moisturise for the night. (this is the foaming cleanser that I hate using because it never completely removes my makeup)
Yay! my face feels great and my pocket does too!
Shea butter $10.00
Grape Seed Oil $13.00
coconut oil $4.00
Two tablespoons of pure African Shea Butter (melted)
Two tablespoons Grape seed Oil
one tablespoon Coconut Oil.
Heat Shea Butter in microwave until liquid (use ceramic container) mix in other ingredients and store in refrigerator until solid.
Note: I am not a fan of petroleum based products like Vaseline or Baby Oil as cleansers because they can be difficult to thoroughly remove resulting in possible acne breakouts. I already have oily, acne prone skin which needs no assistance in either oil or acne production.
Let me know how it goes!
