Milk of Magnesia As A Face Primer… It Works!!

Countless people struggle with the inconvenience of oily skin on an everyday basis. Makeup is nearly impossible to apply and maintain for any desired length of time, expensive cleansers and exfoliators are often required to eliminate extra oil, and embarrassing pimples and other skin complications regularly crop up without warning.

With all this being said, there don’t seem to be any benefits for those with this skin type. However, one little known advantage is the fact there are homemade remedies and economical solutions many people have not even thought to discover. While many oil-prone folks are blowing their bank account on infomercial products and prescription-required ointments, the best solution of all may be found at your local grocery or drug store.

Use Milk of Magnesia to treat oily skin by first washing your skin as usual. Pat your skin completely dry. Always use care and be gentle when you wash your face. It’s not necessary to scrub hard, even if your skin is extra-oily. Scrubbing too hard can damage sensitive facial skin.

Apply Milk of Magnesia to your face, nose and forehead by using a cotton ball. Saturate the cotton ball with the Milk of Magnesia and dab it lightly onto your skin. Cover all oily areas well. It’s best to treat oily skin with Milk of Magnesia immediately after washing your face. Allow the Milk of Magnesia to dry completely on your skin.

Put your make-up on directly on top of the Milk of Magnesia once it has completely dried. It makes a great foundation for make-up. The dried Milk of Magnesia forms a base that causes make-up products to stick to your skin. It causes your make-up to last much longer on your skin.

Below is a youtube video that “show” how to apply the MOM as a face primer

Its official-verified and STAMPED- IT WORKS!!!!!!!

I’m a member of the grease gang..lol..lol.. My skin is super oily and shine ALL DAY. I’ve been searching long and hard for something that would eliminate my grease. I’ve tried the MOM application a couple of times, and still got shine except for yesterday ( I wasnt applying enough)…..

Yesterday I did the following:

  1. start with a clean face
  2. applied my toner ( rose water) with a cotton ball, pat dry
  3. pour a quarter size amount of the MOM into your hands
  4. “blot” it all over your face
  5. rub it all in- all over the face
  6. allow it to dry ( 1-2 minutes)
  7. you may see chalky/white residue ( which was fine for me)
  8. complete your makeup application ( foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, etc)
  9. finish with powder ( I used a translucent powder)

It was great not having to blot or powder my face multiple times through the day. When I came home, I was still oil and shine free. This will remain a staple!!!!!!!

Note:

I poured the MOM into a squeeze/squirt bottle ( to control the pour)

I poured the MOM directly in the palm of my hands ( other use cotton or sponges)

Product Review: Target Brand Eye Make Up Remover

Product: Up & Up (Target Brand) Oil Free Eye Make Up Remover

Price: $3.50

Description:
Effective & gentle
Removes even waterproof mascara
No oily residue

This dual-phase 100% oil-free liquid activates when shaken to gently whisk away even waterproof eye makeup without any tugging, pulling or stinging. Your skin is left feeling clean and fresh with no oily residue. Aloe and cucumber extracts soothe skin.

On a recent shopping trip at Target, I found the Up&Up (Target store brand) Eye Make-Up Remover which said it was comparable to the Neutrogena brand on the label. I checked out the ingredients and it has the same formulation! It works so great its ridiculous! 1-2 swipes with a cotton pad removes everything off my eyes and its gentle enough to rub across my face for any residue my towelettes leave behind! Its also great at removing makeup reside and glue from lashes, allowing you to get multiple usage from 1 pair of lashes. It didn’t burn and the skin around my eyes actually felt moisturized.

I LOVE THIS STUFF!!!! This is my first experience using an eye make up remover product. I normally use Vaseline or EVOO ( extra virgin olive oil) to remove my eye make up. I’ve recently become obsessed with eyeshadow-the brighter the color the more I want to pack on ( lol..lol..) and lashes ( squeals) I love the look natural eye lashes gives me. I just feel so sophicated and flirty. Since suffering from so many skin issues I’ve become a skin care product junky. My skin is urber sensitive, so I will only try something once, if it start to burn, itch, or cause any other irritation- I’m D-O-N-E. I will defiantly purchase this product again, and include it as a staple in my skin care regime.

Have you tried any eye make up removers? what was your experience? Lets chat!
