Tip Time: Easily and Safely Remove Eye Makeup While Saving Money

Last year, I had my first EVER eye infection, which ended up getting over treated and my tear ducts stopped working! I guess it was a good thing, because it was also the second time in my entire life that I had been to see an eye doctor (the only other time, I was about 7, and I am 35 now... shhhh, don't tell anyone else... so it has been a LONG time).

I learned two great things: 1. My vision is perfect, so I don't need to go back for a while. 2. The eye specialist told me that women often use expensive and harsh eye-makeup removers that actually dry out their eyes, and I was one of them.

How to fix the problem: He told me to use a tiny drop of baby shampoo diluted to wash the makeup away. It has fewer ingredients than most make-up removers and is very gentle on your skin and eyes.  (It also saves a bunch of money over the make-up remover I WAS using)

1. Put a small drop of baby shampoo on your finger
2. Add water to your hand
3. Gently rub your hands together to dilute the baby shampoo and create a very light lather
4. Rub around eyes (I do my entire face) with VERY gentle circles to loosen eye make-up, especially around the lash line
