Gentle Eye Makeup Remover Pads

Make a gentle, hydrating eye makeup remover in just a few minutes, skip the harmful ingredients in store-bought remover, and save money all at the same time!
Prep Time 5 mins
Total Time 5 mins


  • 2 T Rose Water hydrosol
  • 1 tablespoon organic aloe
  • 1 T apricot kernal oil or Jojoba
  • 1/2 teaspoon arrowroot powder or organic cornstarch
  • 1.5 teaspoons unscented mild Castile soap
  • 2/3 cup distilled water
  • 30 organic cotton rounds
  • glass jar for storage


  • Add all the ingredients except the Castile soap to your jar and mix.
  • Once the ingredients are well blended, add the Castile soap and stir gently so as not to make too many bubbles.
  • Next, add your organic cotton rounds. Push them down until all of the pads are wet with the eye makeup remover.
  • Store your eye makeup remover in the refrigerator to extend the shelf life.


You don't have to put the pads in the eye makeup remover all at once. You can apply it to a cotton round each night if you prefer.
