Cheap Beauty Thrills: The Ultimate Summer Makeup Remover

Beauty's natural MVP- Coconut oil!
I don't know about you but by the time I've applied my "face-of-the-day" (FOTD) and have been out and about in NYC's 75+ degree weather with a side of muggy 100% humidity for a few minutes let alone hours, it makes you want to carry face wipes at all times. Melting mid-day is only one of my problems, the other is that my one of my favorite mascara's is so hard to remove that I end up using multiple face wipes and a number eye makeup removers over the course of a few weeks.
Luckily, I was sharing my misfortune with a friend who suggested Coconut Oil.
Coconut Oil? Really? Yes. As an acne-prone, contact-lens wearer, I would highly suggest using Coconut oil as the cheapest solution for removing melty makeup and loveable-yet- unremovable mascara. I personally like Trader Joe's Organic Virgin Coconut oil because its $5.99 for 16 oz. but really any Coconut oil will do!  My word of caution, keep your jar/container directly out of the sunlight or heat its the oil liquifies quickly.
