5 all natural DIY makeup removers

If you love wearing makeup, but hate spending a fortune on drugstore makeup removers, we've rounded up 5 of the best DIY makeup removers you can make using natural ingredients you already have in your pantry. These homemade recipes work well on eye and face makeup, and will leave your skin looking and feeling amazing!

I’ve been using Vichy Pureté Thermale 3-in-1 makeup remover for YEARS now, and while I love that it can remove all of my makeup in one sweep without causing breakouts or irritating my sensitive skin, I’m not always a fan of the price. And since I’m on an all-natural kick lately, I’ve been on the hunt for some acne-friendly DIY makeup removers I can make using products I have at home.

Here are 5 of my faves!
