I've always known that Olive Oil is a great makeup remover as well as skin conditioner. But I never tried until a few weeks ago. It was amazing! I only used a little amount and it was able to remove the heaviest waterproof makeup on my eyes without rubbing. Too much rubbing or tugging around the eye area is really bad. The skin around the eyes is very delicate and too much rubbing will eventually cause premature wrinkles...yikes!
All I did was take a small amount on a cotton round and pressed it on my eyes for a few seconds and gently wiped off the makeup. I repeated this step a few times until there was no trace of makeup left. I also used a clean Q-tip to remove eye liner on my lower lash line. There was excess oil on my eyes, but it was no big deal. A warm damp washcloth easily removed it.
