Lately I've been reading tons of conflicting stories about mineral oil. Some people say it clogs your pores and causes breakouts, others say that it's just fine and will not clog your pores. To be quite honest, I never thought a whole lot about it; I know that my Mehron makeup remover has mineral oil in it, but I wipe it away with a dry towel, then immediately jump in to the shower and cleanse afterward. Hence, it's not exactly sitting on my face.
However, I've noticed that my current moisturizer--the St. Ives Collagen Elastin one in the gigantic tub--has mineral oil listed as its second ingredient. Speaking as a new user of this product, I am suddenly in a mild panic! Which side is telling the truth?!
For the record, I would just ask my dermatologist (who I see for a strange skin problem on my ankle), but I won't be seeing him until summer, and I've been paranoid about this for the past 2 days now.
