Glycerin clogs my pores horribly. I can’t use cleansers on face that contain it, can’t use with water- horrible reaction w clogged pores!!
I tried using in my coconut oil (about 1 part glycerin, 5 parts oil) on my legs as a moisturizer. My legs got some bumps. This rarely happens bc my skin is so dry naturally.
Luckily I found the vanicream bar to use as a facial cleanser & cerave …

I would not recommend using glycerin alone or mixed with water as a moisturizer. It gave me closed comedones overnight. The issue with generic glycerin is that..you don't know the source! Palm glycerin is almost guaranteed to break you out.

TL;DR (Summary): I have fussy, combo, acne-prone skin and most (multi ingredient) moisturizers break me out, so I used to go without one. I'm glad I found this. A solution of 2.5%, 5% or 7.5% or mixed with water works great for me as a very light daytime moisturizer when applied with a cotton pad, under my usual mineral sunscreen, undereye concealer and powder (I don't wear foundation) …Read more

UPDATE 01 May 2019: Glycerin and water is a mixture which I use everyday. As moisturizer, my skin likes the combo very much (prone to pimples, oily T-zone, normal cheeks). As a primer for makeup, it creates a smooth, sticky surface which makes the application of foundation and concealer easy and flawless. I also like to use it with my Juno sponge (dupe) to remove the powdery finish after setting …Read more

At first I had trouble how to use glycerin. I tried a few drops mixed with water in my hand then pat on my face, using it straight up, mixing with my moisturizer and finally mix A LOT of water with only several drops of glycerin and tea tree oil in a spray bottle. The last method works best for me. I have to keep in mind that I don't need very much glycerin. Once I put a bit much I can feel …Read more

Glycerin is real good for my dehydrated skin. However sometimes I get some tiny bumps after applying it. Face feels real soft after using it. The first time I applied it, my scars faded about 20% and my face was brighter! I was quite surprised but subsequent applications not so much.

Uses:
I usually use it as a mask, applying it 4:1 glycerin:water and leave it on for …

I think knowing how to use this in the right way is key, like many others mentioned already. When I first started getting into green & clean beauty, I purchased a bottle of vegetable glycerin but didn't know what the heck it was for (lack of research on my part!) --- it had been sitting in my bathroom cabinet ever since, until last week.

I have dry, dehydrated skin …

My skin: not too dry, not oily, no acne or sensitivity. It's winter now and skin is leaning toward dry.
What I wanted: something to apply at night that would hydrate, plump and refresh my skin. Tired of waking up with dry-ish, crinkly skin around my eyes and forehead. Tried a few finished products, night creams, etc. Didn't like them.
(during the day I use a custom blend of …

My porcelain-white skinned daughter got a horrible sunburn yesterday. I needed to get moisture on her skin pronto, but her face & shoulders were burned so badly that I was afraid even a gently applied coating of one of my moisturizers would sting (then be nearly impossible to remove without further damaging her skin & adding to her pain). I squeezed some fresh aloe vera gel from the …Read more

"Glycerin (aka, glycerine or glycerol) is a commonly used ingredient in many cosmetic and personal care skin care products. Yet it also an ingredient that stirs up quite a bit of debate. Glycerin is a humectant that can be naturally derived from plant oils, or it can also be synthetically produced. As a humectant, glycerin works to moisturize the skin by drawing water from the air into the …Read more
