Last month, you may recall, I was challenged to try the Miracle Whip Facial, which is essentially what it sounds like: spreading mayo on your face in hopes that its exfoliating powers will bless your skin and leave it smooth, glowing, youthful, and hopefully not smelling like a bologna sandwich.
I was more than skeptical, but curiosity won out, and I grudgingly bought a small jar of Miracle Whip. One crucial factor not mentioned by anyone before is that cats find this stuff irresistible. Having 3 cats in my home, I got a quickie cardio workout fending off the felines, who wished to lick my sandwich-spread-covered face, and were rather persistant about it. I warded off their gang attack for the required 15 minutes, then rubbed my face as prescribed before rinsing.
I didn’t see or feel any positive difference, though my cheeks felt irritated, red, and raw for about half an hour. This is not an effect I strive for in a beauty product…or a condiment, for that matter.
Honestly, if exfoliation is what you are going for, I would strongly recommend a product made just for that, and leave Miracle Whip to your sandwich. Or to your cats!
