Hi Guys...

I was just wondering if any of you use Cornsilk? I'm from Belgium and we don't have theat stuff here, so whenever my dad goes to the States for his job I ask him to bring me some. It has no color, but it takes away the shine and makes your skin look a lot better... and it's no makeup!

I used to have some of that. It worked good with the shine, but it seemed to make me look a little fake because of the matte-ness (but then again, I think almost everything makes me look fake). The smell is a little strong too.

Peace.

I have been using Cornsilk loose bronzer almost every day for the past six years. I tried a few other bronzers but none of the others that I tried gave me the coverage and the colour (it's not fakey orange) like this one does. It is also great at covering shine. I put it on a couple of times a day, and it doesn't break me out. I imagine the regular (uncoloured) Cornsilk would also be a good product.

I really like Cornsilk Translucent Pressed Powder (no color). I don't like the concealers or foundations though.

Cornsilk has cornstarch in it. I heard that cornstarch feeds the bacteria that causes acne.

"Cornstarch. Starch obtained from corn and sometimes used as an absorbent in cosmetics instead of talc. However, when cornstarch becomes moist, it can promote fungal and bacterial growth (Source: www.radiation-oncology.com/homecare/html/skin_13.htm)."

It also contains other problematic ingredients like rosemary extract, peppermint, and SD alcohol 40, but I don't know how much of a risk these pose since they're not the main ingredients of the powder.

Zea Mays Silk Extract Corn = Cornstarch

Corn Silk has cornstarch in it and so does the Bare Minerals Mineral Veil. I've read about corn starch feeding the bacteria that causes acne in more than one place. One was a website of which I don't recall the URL. The other was in this book:

The Beauty Bible: The Ultimate Guide to Smart Beauty by Paula Begoun

The information is also repeated in the author's website:

"If you're battling multiple blemishes you should be aware that one of the main ingredients in this product is cornstarch, which is a food-based ingredient that potentially can cause an increase in the bacteria responsible for blemishes."

It is also listed as an ingredient to avoid (along with other ingredients present in Corn Silk) in this article:

I agree. This powder was always too heavy and cakey. I wore it at the height of my acne and I think it made it worse (but it could have been the age)

cornsilk makeup by sally hansen beauty products is a blessing when it comes to acne also dial antibacterial bar soap the yellow one lots of water low sugar low caffine low stress good luck with that haha these products are sold on the internet also oleic acid topical gel form reduces production of excess oil use only once a month!! i had horrible acne nothing else worked these things i was told to use were from a estitition and my male gynecologist it worked. same thing doesnt work for everyone but all these people saying it causes acne are promoting another product and seem yto have identical info you be the judge

good luck gena
