These Makeup Remover pads work well for everyday use or for times when you need to remove stubborn makeup. With the added bonus of being less expensive to make than wipes found in online or in the supermarket, they include products that you likely already have in your home.

Store-bought products often contain harsh chemicals that can dry out the skin and leave it feeling unhealthy. Instead, these do-it-yourself wipes moisturise the skin while providing gentle cleansing and will leave you with healthy, smooth, and radiant-looking skin. They also provide a quick and easy way to remove makeup while on-the-go.

Tea Tree essential oil is used in this recipe because it is renowned for its cleansing and rejuvenating effect on the skin. Tea Tree also aids in reducing the appearance of blemishes and soothes occasional skin irritations, making it a wonderful addition to this do-it-yourself recipe.
