Does anyone use this as facial?

shelli563February 17, 2010

Does anyone use half and half cream as a facial? I've read about milk as a wonderful exfoliating and moisturizing facial, but what do you think about half and half? Might it clog pores because it is richer?

I've used yogurt plenty of times, but looking for something different, perhaps a bit more moisturizing during the winter.

Thanks for your thoughts,

I haven't, but from a tip on here a long time ago, I use regular Mircle Whip as a facial once every 2 weeks or so, and I like what my face looks like afterwards--and I have sensitive skin with rosesea.

If you're interested, smooth MW all over your face, avoiding the eye area, and leave it on about 15-20 minutes (until it gets a tacky feel). Then, rub your fingertips over your skin to gently exfoliate, and then rinse with warm water.

Be warned that the vinegar fumes may irritate your eyes (like an onion), so you may want to go above your eyebrows, and below your cheekbone to avoid this--

Hope this helps.
