I'm not quite sure why I'm so happy in the picture above, guess I was a little over excited about making face cleansing wipes! I love taking makeup remover face wipes in my purse or when I travel because they barely take up space.  But they can be so expensive - 20 cents a wipe adds up.  So, I make my own!

I simply made my own and it only cost three cents per wipe which means major savings compared to the name brand.

Here's what you will need: 

Paper Towels

2 TBS Face Wash

2 TBS Coconut Oil

2-3 Cups Water

Measure 2 tablespoons of coconut oil into a microwave-safe dish and zap for a few seconds until it is liquid.  Mix with two cups of water and a couple squirts of face wash. You can add more water if you feel the need to, personally, I add 2 cups then if they dry out, I add a little more.

Soak the paper towels in the solution.  I chose Viva because they're absorbent. DO NOT use a cheap paper towel or they will completely fall apart. You can also cut the paper towels in half with a knife if you'd like to or buy the towels that are perforated into smaller sheets.

Store in a sealed container or separate into zipper baggies.

So let's compare prices . . . 400 store-bought makeup remover wipes would cost $80. The same number of the D-I-Y version cost $12. That’s a savings of $68!

Honestly, it works and they're easy to make with products you probably already have on hand. Try it out and let us know what you think!
