Odds are, everyone has a jar of Vaseline under their sink right now. I was recently reading an article online about the many beauty uses of Vaseline and I was blown away! Who knew this stuff wa
s so handy? Here are my top 6 favorite beauty uses for Vaseline.

  1. Great lip balm for chapped lips. Don’t have chapstick laying around? Grab a swipe of Vaseline and rub it on your lips!
  2. Eyebrow gel. Use a small bit of Vaseline to tame your brows instead of buying expensive brow gel.
  3. Makeup remover. This stuff cuts through makeup like a champ! Take a little bit and rub it in circles on your face to work it into your makeup. Then wipe off with a paper towel or damp cloth.
  4. Keeps your perfume lasting longer. Apply Vaseline to the same areas of skin that you spray perfume before you spray it. It helps your perfume maintain it’s scent for longer!
  5. Homemade scrub: Mix Vaseline with sugar or sea salt to make a homemade exfoliant!
  6. Preps your lips for lipstick. Put some Vaseline on your lips, leave for a few minutes, then scrub your lips with a toothbrush. Rinse it off and see how soft they are!

I have also found that when I have super dry and scaly skin, I can rub some Vaseline on it and it is a great moisturizer. This stuff is so useful, so if you don’t already have a tub of it on hand I recommend grabbing some!

Do you use Vaseline in your beauty routine? If so, comment below and tell me how! I love hearing about new beauty remedies.

Make Your Own Makeup Remover

When you take into account how often you use makeup removing wipes, which is probably once or twice a day, and then take in to account how much they cost, you find that makeup removing wipes are uncomfortably expensive. They are so handy at night when I am taking off my makeup because they make sure I get all of the impurities off of my face before I go to bed. I found a way to make my own makeup remover pads for just pennies and I am excited to try them out! Here is how to make them:

Ingredients:DIY_makeup_remover_pads_coconut_oil_deep_facial_cleansing_routine_Biore_2

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 ½ tbsp. baby shampoo
  • 1/8 tsp oil of your choice (coconut oil, olive oil, baby oil, etc.)
  • Round cotton pads
  • Small jar with a lid

Mix the shampoo, water, and oil together in a cup. Pour a little bit of this mixture into the jar you will be storing the makeup pads in. Place the round cotton pads on top of the solution you just poured into the jar and press down on them to make sure they are getting wet. Repeat this step until the jar is full of damp makeup pads. If you have any of the liquid left over save it for when you need to make more makeup remover pads! Like I said before, these pads are super cheap and easy to make and will last you muuuuuch longer than the pricey ones you buy at the store.

Coconut oil is the Jack of all trades. It can literally do EVERYTHING! You can cook with it, use it for household cleaning, bake with it, and even use it in your beauty routine! After reading this article you are going to want to run to the store and grab you a jar, I guarantee it!

  1. Moisturizer: I keep a jar of coconut oil by my sink and use it as lotion for my face and body when I get out of the shower!
  2. Makeup remover: Like I said above, I keep a jar of the oil by my sink. At the end of the day, I just scrape a little out of the jar and rub it on my eyelids and under my eyes, and use a tissue to wipe my makeup off. It works sooooo well, and it doesn’t irritate my eyes like other makeup removers!96070-OrganicCoconutOil
  3. Shaving cream: Slather some coconut oil on your legs as shaving cream! It will melt right on your skin, and it will leave your legs feeling ultra smooth afterwards.
  4. Toothpaste: Yup, this is even good to use to clean your teeth! There are tons of DIY coconut oil toothpastes out there, and it is much better for your body than store bought toothpaste!

All-natural is the way to go! Plus, when you use coconut oil in your beauty routine, you end up smelling slightly like coconut, which reminds me of the beach, so that is always a plus!

Makeup removing wipes are uncomfortably expensive. I use one every evening to take off my makeup and make sure I get all of the impurities off of my face before I go to bed, which adds up really fast because usually only 25 come in a pack. I found a way to make my own makeup remover pads for just pennies and I am totally stoked! Here is how:

Ingredients:DIY-Makeup-Remover-Pads1

  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 ½ tbsp. baby shampoo
  • 1/8 tsp oil of your choice (coconut oil, olive oil, baby oil, etc.)
  • Round cotton pads
  • Small jar with a lid

Mix the water, shampoo and oil together in a cup. Pour a little bit of this solution into the jar you will be storing the makeup pads in. Place the round cotton pads on top of the solution you just poured in and press down on them to make sure they are getting wet. Repeat this process until the jar is full of damp makeup pads. If you have any of the liquid left over save it for when you need to make more makeup remover pads! Like I said before, these pads are super cheap to make and will last you muuuuuch longer than the pricey ones you buy at the store.
