So maybelline mouse matte thing makes me break out, and a friend of mines (who by the way has perfectly clear skin) told me to use vaseline before i put on the matte and i wont break out.
I wanted to know if anyone has tryed this and if it works or not.

If I remember correctly, Vaseline is too big to get into your pores. It "moisturizers" because it doesn't let water out.

If you want a super shiny, greasy face then do it.
Vaseline is not some impenetrable barrier between you your makeup either. It will absorb & your makeup will will come into contact with your skin. If you want to try a makeup primer, then go for one that will help makeup last, not make it slimy. That said, if your makeup is breaking you out, find a new one. Vaseline or primer will not change the fact that your skin is reacting badly to it.

Nature of the Beast: Moderate, inflammatory, several cysts, large pores & very oily
Current Status: Very mild overall, with some red marks & mild "bumpiness" on chin (possible scarring).
Use: Neutrogena Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser or Acne.org Cleanser / Acne.org 2.5% BP day & night / Acne.org Moisturizer for day / DHC Cleansing Oil or Neutrogena Towlettes to remove makeup at night / Oil of Olay Regenerist Night Creme at night

Makeup: Stila Stay All Day Foundation in Light 2 or Beige 3. Cover FX compact powder in 10.

I heard Vaseline is really good for the skin. Though, it would leave very very very greasy during the day. I wouldnt even know how u would apply makeup, with that thick layer. At night you could use it, since you go to bed, but during the day, i dont know eusa_think.gif Maybe you can mix Vaseline with aloe vera gel or your moisturiser, to make it more into a lotion.

If you ask me, Vaseline is known to be thick and able of a shiny finish - and I wouldn't want me face like that, regardless of its possible benefits. Although celebrities such as Tyra Banks have endorsed the idea of facial Vaseline usage, I suggest to stay away from it. Besides, Tyra Banks has said that she has dry skin, so I guess Vaseline would have been appropriate.

I think Vaseline usage is suggested to be done at night though.. not during the day under makeup.. when my skin was at its driest during Accutane I would moisturize and then put on a layer of Vaseline at night to make sure it stayed in.. now that I've totally changed the subject, lol

I use to break out alot and wasn't sure why? eusa_think.gif I tried everything there is out there, even Pro Active! Now, I'm currently using vaseline under my makeup. Once I wash my face and dry it I apply the vaseline with wet hands. (COLD WATER) This will help so the vaseline doesnt go on so thick. I apply my make up as normal... Physicians Formula is the BEST makeup that wont make you break out. You should give it a try. At night I wash my face but use a night cream... Ever since I started using Vaseline I haven't been breaking out and my acne scars from before are healing. I guess every person is different. Hey it's worth a try! Good Luck!!! biggrin.gif

Two words. CLOGGED. PORES.

Use a proper primer if you want to prime your makeup.
actually, if you want a natural primer that will help fade acne scars, 100% aloe vera fresh from the plant is great. It moisturizes too.

Vaseline has never clogged my pores. I don't know if it actually does but it feels like it would since its so goopy. I feel like it would make your makeup look worse.. hmm you could try it once and see how it goes maybe?

-mayholic where do you buy aloe vera fresh from the plant
