The light minera! Oil I get from my chemist (they have one for skin specifically) is different from the baby oil and laxative verdsions. The latter break me out even if rinsed off immediately. I...

This is one of those products that makes me wonder why I keep trying new skincare and not patch testing properly! I hoped it would help heal my damaged moisture barrier but not only did it break me...

My review is for mineral oil as a cleanser! My skin is so dry that I have found that I am unable to use any sort of cleanser on my face. Even the ones for gentle/sensitive skin that do not foam...

Researching the medicinal implications of using straight mineral oil on your skin and in your hair (especially if you quit bathing???), one can only find it to be a very bad idea.

I have dehydrated, acne prone skin and I've been breaking out like crazy recently so I stopped using all hair and skin products. I bought some mineral oil and found that I can use it in my hair and...

I am not commenting on whether or not mineral oil is bad for you or not, that's something you have to decide for yourself. I think mineral oil, and mineral oil based products, are some of the...

Once you understand that any oil traps moisture (water) in the skin and doesnt actually moisturize the skin in most cases, then you'll be friends with any oil! That said, mineral oil is an...

Removes all my makeup like a dream, which is all that I ask for. Works even on the toughest of waterproof mascaras. The process is a bit messy though, and I found that in order to get rid of the...

A while back I bought a large bottle of mineral oil, because I had this brilliant idea I was going to make my own cold cream. Needless to say the cold cream was a disaster! However, I had the good...

I use plain cheap mineral oil to remove make up, then I typically clean my face again with another cleanser. It would be better to suspend this in water first but I dampen a cotton pad. Tthat...

I use drugstore brand mineral oil (found in the laxative section, yuk, but grab and go, no pun intended) and it is odorless (unlike baby oil) and colorless. 16 oz bottle. I love it for moisturizing...

My skin has been quite temperamental lately. It's dehydrated/oily, sensitive and prone to clogging and now getting some break outs. Not fun. I noticed that some gals on the skincare board have had...

This is definitely not for everyone and I suggest you get pure mineral oil as baby oil contains fragrance that might irritate some skin types. I did some research on mineral oil. For years I was...
