Olive Oil As Make Up Remover

I just discovered that olive oil makes an amazing emergency makeup remover.

If you're stuck somewhere without cotton wipes and remover, simply pour one to two teaspoons of olive oil onto your fingertips and gently massage your face. To remove the last traces of eye make up, run your finger lightly over your lower lashline. Keep your eyes open and look up if you're squeamish.

When the makeup is dissolved, wipe off excess oil with tissue. Wash your face with foaming cleanser or handwash and rinse with warm water.

Makeup is completely gone and skin is soft and smooth. There's no need for tugging or scrubbing. This method is so cheap and effective, I'm refilling my MAC Cleanse Off bottle with olive oil when it's empty.

Any olive oil will do, but the lightest will be easier to wash off. You won't believe how well it works until you try it!
