Vegetable Glycerin works by drawing moisture from the air onto the surface applied. There must be moisture present for it to work properly, this is why we mix it with water. * If you leave your mixture open, the vegetable glycerin will draw moisture into the container and dilute itself!

Difference between Vegetable Glycerin VS. Glycerin

Vegetable Glycerin: All Natural Vegetable derived product
Glycerin: Derived from animal fat ;( Product sits on top and does not absorb deep.

Overall I prefer vegetable glycerine to moisturize over makeup. vegetable glycerine is a strong humectant, meaning it us able to retain moisture. Take a look at some of your beauty products such as lotions and hair conditioners, I guarantee you will find glycerin as one of the ingredients. Remember that ingredients are also listed from the highest concentration to the least concentration. Notice how water (aqua) is usually first? However, I prefer vegetable glycerin because it absorbs deep and I like knowing I don’t have animal fat on my 😉

  1. Hi, all I was able to find was nature’s answer glycerin COCONUT DERIVED… Is that ok as well? Thank you!

  2. It’s really cold in Ny and my skin has already become dry. I tried your Veg glyc spray and my skin looks much better but i do have a question. You write above that the Veg glyc takes moisture from the air but i have read on other sites that ultimately veg gly takes moisture from your skin (not good). I really love this spray and would like your expert opinion, does veg glyc try to draw water out of your skin ? tks allie

  3. Hi i was wondering i have very bad dry skin .i normaly use jojoba oil then nivea cream then makeup .can i use the glycerin after doing this routine or after i finished my makeup?

  4. Hi! I stumbled across your site looking for the best ways to gently treat under eyes & have been trying out your fabulous tips. I’m only on day 2 & I think there’s definitely a little improvement. I’m 25 & was using castor oil on my lashes to strengthen & grow them back from an extreme stress period, which worked beautifully, but I kept occasionally forgetting to protect my under eye area & eventually I woke up one morning with several wrinkles & the skin around VERY dry & taut. Obviously it was drying under my eyes little by little until my skin couldn’t cope any longer, mix that with stress, late nights & not enough water intake & it was a recipe for disaster. I hope I haven’t done permanent damage to my poor under eye area, but I definitely think your method will help at least. The other page didn’t have a comment area, so I hope you don’t mind me asking here, but with the wrinkle treatment, I’m really wary of using straight baking soda on my skin & only ever mix it with manuka honey when using it for exfoliation, so would this method have the same effect? Also, if doing it every night, do you use the baking soda every time? Is it not too harsh? Finally, I’m a little unsure about the honey part. Are you adding the honey directly to under your eyes or to the mixture? Sorry so many questions!

    1. Hi Shay!
      Love your email address by the way! Cute! Don’t worry about the baking soda, it’s as gentle as you let it be. Meaning, if you use a heavy hand, it may cause redness. BUT if you use it lightly using your ring finger gently on the lower eye area – it will help exfoliate that delicate skin. You can even make a wet paste of baking soda and let it sit on you under eye area to soften your skin. It’s amazing. If you don’t like honey -use olive oil or coconut oil. Give it a try. I love it myself.

  5. Hi Jen,I have a severe dry facial skin.wenever I wear makeup doesn’t stick on my face,it was showing all my wrinkles and mini holes and dryness out my face vry quickly.i get really fed up on this.Iam asking ur do I apply Glycerine,use it as primer or over the makeup.if u send a video that would be helpful,who suffer poblem like me.i appreciate great help and Tks .Iam waiting ur valuble feedback.

    1. Hi Devi,
      If you have severely dry skin, I recommend that you moisturize your skin in the morning with olive oil. Massage it into your skin. Next Apply warm water to your skin to help absorb the olive oil deeply into your skin. Even try steaming your face to get the olive oil to absorb. Rinse your face with warm water again and apply a light coat of olive oil on top of your skin, massage until it’s well absorbed. This will help seal in your natural moisture. You can apply makeup five minutes after. I do not recommend using heavy powders if you have dry skin.

  6. Hi. I have recently started using essential oils mixed with some carrier oil like jojoba or argan for my night time skin routine (over night). Will these oils still be effective if I apply a toner before them or should I apply directly on the skin?
