Friday's Frugal Find

This week's Friday's Frugal Find comes in the department of make-up! Ever have stubborn make-up that refuses to come off your eyes no matter what you use? Stop buying those fancy eye make up removers and instead buy a jar of Vaseline or Petroleum Jelly.

I read in a magazine this week that using a Q-tip and Vaseline to remove eye make up works wonders. I was a bit skeptical at first. I was especially afraid it would make my eyes feel greasy. I tried it and it worked really well! It took the make up right off, better than the eye make up remover, and didn't leave my eyes feeling greasy. Then I just used the excess on my finger to soften my lips!

Not only is this effective, it's economical! One jar of Vaseline will last you quite a while and is much cheaper than eye make up remover!

  1. As soon as I saw your heading on Frugal Friday, I thought, I just use Vaseline! Of course, what I actually use is store brand, but I have used it for years, and it works great. I do buy eye makeup remover for my daughter who wears contacts - just in case. I'm wondering if Vaseline would be okay for her, too, or not.

  2. I'm not sure if it would be ok for your daughter or not! You could try looking online!
