I love taking makeup remover face wipes in my purse or when I travel because they barely take up space.  But they can be so expensive - 20 cents a wipe adds up.  So, I make my own!

It only cost three cents per wipe which means major savings compared to the name brand.

Here's what you will need: 

Paper Towels

2 TBS Face Wash

2 TBS Coconut Oil

2-3 Cups Water

Directions:

Measure 2 tablespoons of coconut oil into a microwave-safe dish and zap for a few seconds until it is liquid.  Mix with two cups of water and a couple squirts of face wash. You can add more water if you feel the need to, personally, I add 2 cups then if they dry out, I add a little more.

 

Soak the paper towels in the solution.  I chose Viva because they're absorbent. DO NOT use a cheap paper towel or they will completely fall apart. You can also cut the paper towels in half with a knife if you'd like to or buy the towels that are perforated into smaller sheets.

Store in a sealed container or separate into zipper baggies.

So let's compare prices . . . 400 store-bought makeup remover wipes would cost $80. The same number of the D-I-Y version cost $12. That’s a savings of $68!

Honestly, it works and they're easy to make with products you probably already have on hand. While we're talking about makeup, let me share with you an easy way to clean your brushes too! 

Simply, dip your makeup brushes in water, then brush them over a WHITE bar of soap (unscented) and back into the water. You can dab them clean and you're good to go! Skip the high price wipes and the high price brush cleaner!
