A lot of people get startled when they see olive oil in the toilet, they think that olive oil is something that should be ”kept in the kitchen and no place else because it is used for cooking and nothing else”
Boy are they wrong…..
I woke up one morning and found it quite odd that I still had a bit of white eyeliner on my waterline from the night before (the excitement of trying on new makeup!) I found this pretty strange as I’m usually pretty good at getting all my makeup off before going to bed and up until now, Boots Essentials Cucumber Eye Makeup Remover Gel had never let me down.
It then occurred to me that white eyeliner would probably need a little bit of extra care when trying to remove it, especially for my skin tone and because the liner was the complete opposite of my skin color, even the tiniest of makeup residue would still be visible!
So I searched and I searched and I searched some more, until I finally had a breakthrough and discovered Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the perfect eye makeup remover had been sitting in the kitchen press just waiting to be used.
After I saw how effective it was, I quickly went out and purchased a 100ml bottle of Olive oil in the nearest chemist and decided that from that day on, it would be the only eye makeup remover to ever touch my eyes. (dramatic much?)
Perhaps I am a being a tad bit dramatic, but it’s excusable, and here’s why:
4. Extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality of its class as it has the added advantage of providing strong antioxidants like vitamin A and E that help repair and renew damaged skin due to sun exposure.
Besides all the technical stuff, olive oil is cheaper than other eye makeup removers, it lasts a lifetime, and it conditions your lashes leading to possible eye lash growth! I would highly recommend it to everyone, and even if you aren’t sure about going out and buying a bottle just go to your kitchen and give it a go before making such a ”huge” commitment.
For those of you who would like to take a leap of faith, here is a link to where you could but it now:
