Milk of Magnesia: Does it really help with oily skin?

I am a total sucker for any DIY or all natural remedies so I had really high hopes when I decided to try milk of magnesia for my oily skin. I had read that is was a wonderful and cheap way to deal with excess oil. I tried it out for about a month, maybe a bit more, and these are my results:

When you first apply it you immediately feel it’s drying effect. My skin felt quite tight, when applying you must be very careful because a white film will most likely form around the edges so you want to make sure you get rid of that, all you have to do is rub it a bit and it comes off.

While it is quite mattifying when first applied it really didn’t have any long lasting effects for me. I still got oily as if I had applied nothing at all. I was pretty disappointed because I had very high hopes for this! I had heard it was wonderful for so many people! I really don’t know if it’s just me but milk of magnesia was not the cure for my oily T-zone, the search for my solution continues!
