This morning I woke up with a cluster of tiny milia under each eye. After a bit of research I have decided it could be the clinique take the day off eye make up remover oil I got free sample of.
Could this be right? I have now cleansed with lrp toner with lrp and put on my effaclar duo all a bit stingy as I've been out in the sun recently so for the last week been using cetaphil and Clinique moisture surge (free sample) every day and clarins lotus oil (free sample) used twice only a few nights ago. Could it be any of those products?
I get milia from all kinds of oils and greasy creams, including most eye creams. Once the milia are formed, switching products does not help, they just stay there. Mine eventually fall of, but it can take months or years. You can have them professionally seen to. I'd discontinue all oils and see what happens.
I have them, only one at the moment but three have gone over the past few months after being there for years. My 5yo DD has a cluster in the outer corner of one of her eyes and is being teased for them
I got 2 about 2 years ago. One was on my cheek and I scraped away the top layer if skin with a needle and popped it out. The second is in the corner of my eye. It's been bugging me for 2 years but yesterday I finally plucked up the courage to get it removed. I had to have it treated with a Lamprobe because the therapist said it was too close to my eye to lance. It was the most painful procedure ever but hopefully it will be gone once the scab falls off. I haven't had any new ones since I changed my skin care routine so I think it must be product related. When I got the milia I was using body shop cleaner and toner and I haven't had any since I stopped using them.
