Miracle Whip – a Miracle Beauty Cream! Skin Rejuvination

A friend of mine once told me that her mother swore by using Miracle Whip, yes the icky salad cream, as an exfoliator. This woman has the most amazing skin so I put my mild revulsion aside and decided to give it a try. Nobody said make-up and beauty blogging was pretty!

I was informed that the ingredients in Miracle Whip remove dead flaky skin. It also helps normalise excessively oily skin.

  • Firstly, tie back your hair – unless you want to experiment with the effects of Miracle Whip on the hair! If you do, let me know how you get on :)
  • Next, apply a thin layer on your face and neck, avoiding the the eye area.
  • Leave on for 10 minutes and then massage gently. The dead skin cells roll off with the salad cream.
  • Rinse your skin with warm water. Follow with your usual skin regime.

A word of warning – it stinks to high heaven! Vinegar is responsible for the smell but is probably responsible for the amazing effects too so I can’t complain. It also feels oily and weird but after 3 minutes it melted onto my skin.

My skin was in such a state, thanks to the flu. I am delighted to report that all of the flaky dry skin is gone and my skin feels smooth and tight. I’m quite surprised.

I also heard that Miracle Whip can be applied a few times a week for 5 – 6 weeks to reach skin rejuvenation.

Consider me on board! I’ll keep you updated on my progress.

Maybe the manufacturers should rename it – ‘Miracle Cream’ has a nice ring to it!

    Hey thanks Amy,
    I live in Mumbai, India, and its so tough to find the best of products here. I sometimes ask my friends to buy them for me, while they are abroad. But ya the waiting just kills me.

    I hope i find Miracle Whip here… thanks much for the post.

    I have my wedding coming up… and need to work on my dull skin soon!

    Any idea where I can buy Miracle Whip as I tried a number of places at the week end or can anything else be used

    • Eidin

      Just a quick note to say that I finally got it in Dunnes Stores

    You can use it on your hair too! I remember that when I was a kid, my dad used to make a strange mixture once a week with eggs and mayonnaise and then jumped in the shower to wash his hair with it. It smells disgusting but he swore by it!

  • Chrissy

    That sounds really interesting. Maybe I should give it a try and it will help balance my oily skin. Looking forward to your next update on this.

    what are the actual ingredients in miracle whip that attribute to it’s exfoliating properties? Is it just the vinegar or does miracle whip contain yoghurt which i know has vitamin A in, and i’ve used yoghurt before on my face and after it’s washed off left my skin soft and smoother than before.
