No More Raccoon Eyes!

This Sparked Me!

Ever forget to remove your eye makeup before swimming? Yikes!!

On days when I forget to ditch the mascara and eyeliner and don't have makeup remover with me, a little dab of hair conditioner on a tissue worked amazingly well. It cut right right through the mascara and eyeliner. It worked so well, I might actually stop using more expensive removers altogether!

    I use Vaseline as my go-to makeup remover!! It gets the tough waterproof mascara off my lashes and helps soften the skin around my eyes. :) works wonders, lol. I feel like the conditioner would burn my eyes.

    Thanks for the tip, I just purchased mascara and eye liner and it has been a very long time since I have worn make up and I didn't for get the eye makeup remover, but when that is long gone, I now know I can use conditioner! Thanks!

    You can also by vit. E oil for little as five dollars and it takes off eye makeup great as well. ;)

    Olive oil is known as a natural makeup remover and no it wont clog any pores! Try it instead of conditioner. At least this way you avoid any irritation or allergic reaction to the chemicals in the conditioner. Good luck :)
