I am a girl who loves to wear makeup as much as any other girl, however I have really oily skin and after several hours my face tends to look like a grease fest, after doing a little research I kept seeing one product being utilized constantly to keep the oil at bay and that is Phillips Milk of Magnesia.
My Overall Experience- I shake the bottle to suspend the solution, pour a small amount in the palm of my hands and apply it directly to my face in a similar fashion as my moisturizer, then I wait a couple of minutes for it dry. It did give a whitish/streaky cast however those areas can be easily rectified with the swipe of a finger.After this I simply apply my foundation making sure everything is well blended. I was skeptical at first.... a laxative on my face... really ??!! I must say however, that it really does help with my foundation application and even more so with my oily skin. I found that my face stayed matte for a longer time because typically I would have to blot my face or reapply powder before leaving home whenever I do my makeup. Phillips Milk of Magnesia is also said to be a remedy for acne but I have not used it for a long enough time to to speak on this aspect.I will however inform you girls if I do see any improvements in my skin.
Have you tried the the Milk of Magnesia trick ?
