Baby oil vs. Eyes
Posted 13 January 2008 - 09:23 PM
So, I use baby oil to take off my makeup, right? The gel form, if that makes a difference. But I remember hearing (don't remember from where) that it's really dangerous if it gets into the eyes - as in, it travels to the back of your eyeball and does some bad stuff to your vision there. Does this have any truth to it?

personally, i have never used baby oil. i have tried warm water+sweet almond oil on a cotton pad before, it works great to remove any eyemakeup.
check also that thread on specktra.

In no way shape or form would I condone using any type of baby oil on the face at all... It can negatively affect your eyes over time, and also do you really want to put something that is petroleum based on your eyes or face for that matter? So baby oil is out and so is Vaseline, PLEASE!!
It is so much easier and cleaner to use an actual makeup remover instead of an oil not meant for the face, I don't understand why someone wouldn't just buy that product instead.
Use something that removes waterproof makeup instead of baby oil like MAC Gently Off eye and lip or Cleanse Off Oil (my personal fave).

I just don't wear waterproof make up so the stuff generally washes off with whatever I use to wash my face with or if I have layed mascara, I use a natural oil.
