April is Autism Awareness Month

April is Autism Awareness Month. You can help support the cause by purchasing a set of puzzle soaps. For each set purchased in April, I will donate 50% to the Autism Society of America.

Sets are $5 each and can be found in my Etsy shop. You can choose from the fruit set (shown above) or the childhood set which includes bubblegum, creamsicle, popcorn, and cotton candy scents.

Please consider supporting this great cause!

Make Your Own Make-Up Remover?

I'm running low on make-up remover and instead of buying a new bottle of commercial make-up remover with ingredients that I can barely pronounce, let alone know what they are, I decided to try to make my own. I found a few recipes online but this one seems to be the most popular:

1T. Olive Oil
1T. Castor Oil
2t. Canola Oil

I didn't have any canola oil so I substituted it with sweet almond oil. It was very easy to make. I mixed it all up and stored it in a little bottle.

Now for the real test...did it work? Well, it took off my eyeliner and eyeshadow really well. The mascara, not so much. I had to hold it on my eyelashes and let it soak in for a bit before it did anything and even then it left a lot on. Not to mention it made me feel quite greasy.

I'm not going to give up though. I'm sure there's a solution out there instead of using chemicals. I'll keep you all posted on what I come up with and if you have any recipes, feel free to share!
