Exclamation You will not believe this...Crisco for your face?

I read the QVC beauty board from time to time, and there is a big group of gals that are using Crisco as a night cream....I will have to admit...I tried it too LOL!

Read about it here:

Did your face feel smooth like a baby's behind the next morning? Certainly would be cheap!

Does it clog pores?

As long as it does nto clog pores, I will give this a try! Cheap!

I remember when I was little, mom used to deep condition my hair...she would heat olive oil on the stove, then work it in my hair. I have been meaning to try that again. I do buy cholesterol in a jar and put that on my hair.

I use vaseline on my hands and feet rather than expensive creams. Works great.

I was reading all the reviews...I think I am about sold! I read that someone else asked about clogging and was told no, no problems.

I think I will give this a try tonite. It is cheap! Thanks for posting!

The last thing I need on my face is more oil/grease!

When I was attending college (low, these many years ago) I was taking a stage make-up course. We had to use grease paint, which is notoriously hard on the skin. They recommended crisco for make-up removal and that is what I got. No breakouts, no problems--and this was on teenaged skin (always famous for problems).

My son had severe exzema as a toddler--so bad his skin would actually ooze---took him to a specialist at Children's Hospital in Chicago---and yep....you guessed it....they told us to smear him with plain old crisco (not the butter flavor-lol). It did help. He smelled like a french fry though!! LOL

Gosh, I have maybe bought this stuff 2x in my life for fixing food. I never have this product on hand as I don't fry anything. I'll keep up with the results though...so keep posting.

I, too, read the thread and I think I will try it! I also followed up on the asprin rub for blackheads. I may try that too. Who knew - Crisco may give Oil of Olay a run for it's money!

I've gone back to doing that too. Have to this time of the year anyway. Lotion just doesn't seem to hold even the good stuff.

We advise people who come in complaining of dry, cracking heels to use Crisco at night before we prescribe them a prescription strength creme. About 85% of the time, they don't need the Rx. Could see it doing the same for the face!

xntric, Honey....just wait til you get to the age where you wish you had some of that oil back! lol Aging is a drying thing, too. I read a long time ago about vaseline and no need to buy expensive stuff. Also on yahoo last week there were 5 things to never, never ever do to your face and one of them was how you clean it. Use cold cream or something and never anything with soap (including Dove), etc. That La Mer stuff is so expensive. I loved it but guess I'll go back to cold cream and Oil of Olay. I'll just leave it for the others who don't mind spending all that money. I surely thought about it for a long time but not sure it's worth it. Also that yahoo article said (and they did not name La Mer but inferred it) that using a very expensive cream without retinol was worthless for wrinkles. No matter what they said! They suggest ROC with retinol for night cream.

Years ago I met a lady (in her 70s) who was from Italy. She had the most beautiful, flawless skin. I had to ask her what she used on her face and she told me she's used nothing but Vaseline her whole life. She never wore makeup either. I can use the Vaseline at night (it soaks in in about an hour) but not under makeup.

I did not. I meant to. I was so tired. I went upstairs, washed my face, then it hit me...oh no, I forgot to grab crisco....I was so tired and did not feel like coming the whole way back down, I just used my normal night stuff.

I will do it tonite...as a matter of fact, I am going to go get a bit of crisco and take upstairs now!

I've used it on my feet. I prefer coconut oil on my face and body, and it soaks in fast, and it is a good fat.

No, they have debunked that. Now, they know that it's the faux fats, like margarine and Crisco that mess up your bloodwork..

Anyone try this lastnight?

I did. I used a pea size amount. I dotted it on my face and rubbed in. To my surprise it was not greasy. No breakouts this morning!

I then rubbed a small amount into my hands and elbows. Again, not greasy like I thought it would be.

I am gonna continue and see if I can tell a difference.

I am interested in doing it, but concerned that cats and dogs will be licking my face all night.. That happened with cocoa butter and a puppy once.

I dunno...I found this on several skin care sites. It's not the worst as far as pore clogging goes, but the powers that be say it's not NON comedogenic. I'm thinking it depends on the individual's skin and how prone to breakouts they are.

I remember reading years ago that Liz Taylor said all she ever used on her face was Crisco. Maybe not true, but who knows.

I remember as a teenager we used mayonaisse on our hair for conditioner. The Crisco and mayonaisse is from the dinosaur years. Ha-----everything old is new again.

Angel, they say it helps to clear your arteries. Lots of Dr's recommend using coconut oil. I saw it at Walmart just last week right by the other cooking oils.
