Okay I tried the honey face wash for the first time today. I liked it in my morning shower, but after the day it wasn't quite enough to take off my mineral make-up. Any natural ideas for taking off all my make-up (mineral foundation, blush, eyeshadow, eyeliner, masscara) before the honey wash? I would love if it was a simple, natural, one-product thing, like the honey. Help?

The honey takes off my makeup, but I use local honey and I use warmish water and use my fingers to do small circles on my face. I'll add baking soda sometimes and/or tea tree oil.<br><br>
If I don't feel like doing honey washes and need more moisturization, I wash my face with a little squirt of coconut oil. It takes eye makeup off pronto.<br><br>
As with the honey, I do firm circles all over my face and splash with warmish water. You'll have a temporary slick face and then you pat it dry with a dry towel. Take your dry hands and rub the rest of the oil that is sitting on your face into your skin. Then you don't have to do anything. After a while, you'll see that it takes about five to ten minutes for most of the oil to absorb into your skin. By morning, your skin looks fabulous.

Well that is pretty much what I did, but when I dried my face with the towel it got make-up all over it. What gives?

What kind of makeup are you using?<br><br>
You may need to wash off the makeup with oil before washing off the oil with honey.

I mentioned coconut oil in the previous post. I don't use the honey at all afterward, just the coconut oil by itself to wash if that's what I want to use that day.<br><br>
I use Physicians Formula. It's a little veil of makeup on my face. I wonder why so much makeup is visible on your towels?? Hopefully you're not caking it on <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Could there be such a huge difference in mineral makeups that makes one easier to take off than others? Mine washes off with the coconut oil or the honey.

I use baby oil, but for a more natural alternative, I would try olive oil

to remove makeup. You could then wash it off with honey, after the oil. . . .Almond oil would be good instead of jojoba, almond oil seems to be used in a lot of high end products. I keep jojoba oil in the bathroom. I use it instead of conditioner sometimes, on the ends, only, and a drop or two on my skin, when needed.

Thanks for the tips! I've had the same problem! I use Monave mineral makeup and it says on the site that it's virtually water proof and they weren't lying! IT does not come off with just the honey. I've tried organic plain yogurt which used to work with my liquid makeup and it wouldn't work either. I will now try the oil!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
