Fabulous beauty uses for Olive Oil

Purchase a bottle of extra Virgin Olive Oil from your local grocery store and you won't turn back.

MAKEUP REMOVER - Dab a little oil on a tissue or cotton pad. Smear over eyes to take off stubborn mascara, eye shadow and eyeliner. Works like a charm.

SKIN MOISTURIZER - Make sure your face is squeaky clean before bed. Apply a dime sized amount evenly on face. This trick makes your skin extra moisturized and youthful looking the next day.

SHAVING AID - Smoother over the target area and watch as this inexpensive alternative moisturizes and does the job well. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil for a pleasant smelling shave.
