I can't imagine putting Crisco on my face! I think the hydrogenated fatty acids would be bad for the skin, because of the free radicals. You might try olive or sesame oil, perhaps mist your face with water and then mix just a drop or two of the oil and massage on face.
Actually there was a girl who went to my sister's school who was always blabbing about putting cooking oil on her face as a moisturizer - and she had terrible skin, so who would want to listen to her? Then again, she was also had problems.
