Removing cosmetics without scrubbing is important to avoid damaging your skin. Castor oil is excellent for removing eye makeup. In this recipe, it is combined with two other natural oils that help remove makeup while conditioning your skin and eyelashes. Even the most stubborn mascara glides off effortlessly with this light oil mixture.

• 1 tablespoon canola oil
• 1 tablespoon castor oil
• 1 tablespoon light olive oil

1. Mix oils together and pour into a clean container. 

2. Pour a small amount of oil onto a clean cotton pad and gently wipe over your upper and lower eyelashes and eyelids
