Does Baby Oil Remove Makeup
 

Question: Can you use baby oil to remove makeup?
Answer:
Baby oil has been used to remove makeup for many years. While it is very gentle to the skin, you should opt for more natural oils such as olive or almond, which are more moisturizing and safer to use. If you do use baby oil to remove your make up, never use it as an eye makeup remover.

The problem with baby oil is that when it is not properly removed from the skin it actually works to trap oil and bacteria, which can cause irritation and breakouts. This is especially true when used as an eye makeup remover. If the oil is not properly wiped away it can get into your eyes and cause irritation, including puffiness or dry, itchy eyes.
