Beeswax On Face. Yes Or No ?

4 posts in this topic

Okay this ingredient is driving me crazy because I can't find a good factual website that can tell me whether it's bad for skin or not. They all say a different thing. Some say avoid it like the plague, others say its a miracle.

So can any one tell me if it really does suffocate the skin or clog pores ?

The face balm that I'm planning to try out contains a lot of beeswax. I'd say 90% of it is beeswax. Would that be an issue for very dry , sore , (but very congested) cheeks ?

Thank you in advance to any reply.

Bump! I wanted to use Egyptian Magic All Purpose Cream but it contains Beeswax. Is it good for people on Accutane?

It may obviously vary by brand, but my experience with beeswax was horrific. I used Nad's Hypoallergenic Facial Wax Strips for my upper lip and it made me have one of the worst breakouts I have ever had. After waxing with beeswax, I got 4 painful cysts on my upper lip. One of them left me with a scar and other two left me with red marks. One red mark has not completely faded yet and that happened about 5 months ago. I continued getting more cysts on my upper lip for four weeks and then it stopped. All this occurred while I was going though severe acne that lefts me many red marks on my cheeks and chin.

I forgot to add that the beeswax not only broke me out on my upper lip. I tried the beeswax for the body on my arms and chest. I also broke out terribly on my chest with little pimples, I could count about 40. I had never broken out on my chest, thankfully it was all gone within a month with no red marks or scarring. For my arms, the beeswax gave me red bumps, but they weren't pimples. Those red bumps were gone after 3 weeks. I just guess i may be allergic to beeswax or I'm just super sensitive to it.
