  1. Hello!! I haven’t been on here in awhile! Yes my skin is doing wonderfully!! I still use the magnesium oil twice a day most days. I’ve gotten a little lazy and sometimes I just use it once. I usually splash my face with water in the morning and then use the mg oil and then some type of moisturizer. At night it’s kinda the same thing I just use a mild cleanser to remove any makeup then it’s the mg oil and a moisturizer and that’s it. My skin is pretty much perfect. It’s like 95%. There’s still s
  2. Well maybe try adding a few drops of a very gentle oil like raspberry seed oil, hemp seed oil, or pumpkin seed oil. I’m glad to hear it’s going better. It was about 3 weeks in that i started finally seeing a drastic improvement.
  3. Well I know everyone’s skin is different so it isn’t guaranteed to work. My purging started to subside after about 2 weeks. So it was very difficult to get thru that time. It brought everything out of my trouble areas like my cheekbones and jawline. It was around 3 weeks before it started looking a lot better. And now it’s been like 10 weeks and my skin feels amazing. My skin feels like silk. The only reason I pushed thru he purge was because I was sure that’s what it was, rather than a bad reac
  4. Yes, that’s correct. I pour a little into my hand, rub them together and then rub it into my skin. For whatever reason, I haven’t needed moisturizer at all. My skin has been wonderfully hydrated. Plus the Burt’s bees cleanser is very moisturizing so that might be part of the reason. Although I was noticing my hydration issues disappeared before I added the cleanser Regarding sensitivity to the citrus oil, maybe you didn’t dilute it enough? I’m using 20 drops or so in a whole 4oz bottle of MO.
  5. The cleanser feels amazing and hydrating as well plus, like I said, I’m not over cleansing. Just once a day to remove makeup. In the mornings I just splash water on my face, apply the MO like a toner, then apply makeup.
  6. I’m using a mild cleanser from Burt’s Bees that i absolutely LOVE. I’m just using it at night to wash off makeup. And I don’t really pay much attention at all to what I eat. My acne doesn’t seem to ever be diet related. I do happen to eat healthy. We eat mostly organic and we really don’t eat much sugar. But my skin had a steady decline through this year even with eating healthy so I think my acne is more hormonal. I use no moisturizer now whatsoever. I used to use different oils but the MO
  7. I did have a bad purge, but for me, I think that was necessary. I mean all that crap was just hanging out under my skin and it needed to come out. I had been applying it to other areas(although not daily) and I wasn’t seeing any improvement in my skin. It wasn’t until I started using it on my face directly that I started seeing drastic results. I think mixing it with sweet orange oil is key though AND it does sting like heck on broken skin so brace yourself. But I’m telling you, it’s been two m
  8. I don’t know why they didn’t post, I’ll try again. Just be prepared for the purge, but you can tell it’s definitely just bringing everything out because a small hard lump under the skin becomes a Whitehead within like two days. And now, my skin is completely smooth. Before I started this, my skin was so lumpy and bumpy it was just awful. So as you can see (hopefully) there is some hyperpigmentation BUT zero active acne or bumps. So now I can easily cover with a little makeup and my skin looks
  9. Hi! I’m glad someone finally responded! Lol I’m just so excited that this could help people. I posted pics of before and after, they’re several posts back. I would say it was moderate. It was mostly nodules and pustules along my cheekbones and jawline with some smaller whiteheads on my forehead. I found out about magnesium oil as a supplement years ago. Using it topically is supposed to be better than taking it orally for absorbtion. But the thing is, it’s not actually an oil at all, it’s a
  10. Ok, I’m not sure how long it’s been now, this is probably like week 8. Just wanted to say my skin is nearing perfection. Those first pics were like a 2, the last pics were like a 6, and I’d say my skin now is like 8.5. It’s really amazing. I’ll try to post pics tomorrow
  11. I started using magnesium oil mixed with sweet orange oil topically about 2 months ago. My skin has gone from like a 1 to 8.5 in 2 months. I’m 32 and have tried everything imaginable over the past 17/18 years. My skin is almost perfect now.
  12. Still amazing progress!!! It’s been 5 weeks now, I think and my skin is doing fabulous!! I’ll post pictures over the next day or two. Please try this! It’s so easy and simple. My skincare routine has become so simple and easy. Morning: splash face with water and then use magnesium/orange oil Evening: wash face with Burt’s bees face wash and then use magnesium/orange oil. That’s it! And it’s WORKING!!!!
  13. Ok, so this is the worst of the purge about 6-7 days after I started. Pretty bad And this is today, day 24 or using just magnesium oil with sweet orange oil. As you can see, SIGNIFICANT improvement. So I’m just gonna stick with this. I mean, it’s been steady improvement since the purge ended about 2 weeks ago so I don’t see why the improvement would stop. I expect to have perfect skin soon, like in the next two weeks. I’ll keep updating!! Oh! I should add
  14. Ok so it’s like day 20 and my skin is just SOOOOO much better...like it’s almost totally clear. There’s the hyper pigmentation but that’s steadily fading too. I’m planning on posting pictures tomorrow!!
  15. All I can say is, wow...just wow...day 15 with shockingly amazing results. I’m STILL not going to trust it til it’s been 30 days. I feel like some products or routines make a huge improvement for like 2 weeks and then it stops working. But I’m telling you, this just feels different. Plus it’s super good for you anyway, you can always use more magnesium.
  16. Alrighty I think I’m really excited about posting progress pictures! Im gonna post on Monday! I’m only going to post, though, if there’s continued progress. The way things have gone for the past two weeks have me pretty certain this is really working. Oh and in case anyone is wondering, I am one of the many that has “tried everything”. To summerize my 16 year battle: bp combined with erythromycin Worked amazingly for like 6 years. My skin was perfect. But then about 5 years ago I deci
  17. Still getting better!! Just dealing with the big ones that were brought up over the past 3 days. But WOW!!! So far...I’m still nervous about getting too excited.
  18. Ok so it’s been 11 days now and I’m still very happy overall. I will say the past week has been VERY tough because this really brought EVERYTHING up and out. So day 3 the small clogged pores close to the surface came up and that was bad enough but then a few days later, like day 5 and 6, the monsters from the deep emerged... ugh!! now...that’s really great news because it means it’s definitely working, but it’s horrible because that means I’ve gone thru a massive purge that has been super diff
  19. Day 8: steady improvement. I still don’t have the courage to post pictures yet, I want to wait a few more days when I’m 100% certain it’s working and my skin will clear completely. My forehead is looking great, no bumps or congestion, just a few spots still healing. It’s my cheeks and jaw line that are usually the problem anyway. I’m guessing/hoping that in another 2-3 days things are going to be looking way way better. It gets better every day
  20. Day 7: significant improvement! There are almost no new pimples being brought to the surface. Most have either surfaced and already popped and are flaking away. There are about 3 deeper ones that are still working their way up, but they’re ones that I didn’t even know existed and they’re in the trouble spots below my cheek bone. I’m not surprised there where a few laying dormant in there. Like I was telling my husband, it doesn’t LOOK like significant improvement at a glance but I can clearly
  21. Day 6: A little more info on magnesium Oil. It’s just magnesium Chloride so a type of saltwater. However, on top of having deep cleansing and drawing properties it’s also easliy transdermally absorbed making it a good source of magnesium, which is also helpful for acne. However, I was reading articles from NIH’s site and their research found that Magnesium oil alone doesn’t seem to have antiseptic properties BUT it does when combined with citrus oil (why I’m adding sweet orange oil to my magnes
  22. UPDATE!!!!: DAY 9 AND SO FAR IT’S WORKING!! 2 WEEK UPDATE!! IT’S AMAZING! 3 WEEK UPDATE!! I’M CONVINCED!!! POSTED PICS BELOW!!!! Ok so I’m trying something new. I’m not sure if it works yet because I’m only on day 5. But I started a massive purge on like the third day and it was so bad yesterday but today it seems to be clearing greatly. So I’m really really hoping to have good news within the next week. But I’m using magnesium oil topically mixed with one drop of sweet orange oil.
