I was just wondering if it is safe to use olive oil as an eye makeup remover? Can getting small amounts of olive oil in your eyes on a daily basis cause damage?     
In general, natural oils can be used as skin care products or even to take off eye makeup. Because products can vary in their purity and composition, it is advised that you discontinue use if you experience any eye or skin irritation.
