sometimes wearing oil-free actually makes your face produce more oil, becuase it’s overcompensating.

i have oily skin, too, and i find that using No7 No Shine primer works pretty well and I also use Revlon anti shine matt liquid foundation.

i still have to top up my face with powder halfway through the day – but unfortunately for most people with oily skin, it’s just something you’ve got to live with.

it sucks.

@futuremrsk18:  Does your skin break out at all? If you could, I would only do salicylic face wash at night to get rid of make up. Stripping oils will make skin produce more oils. What do you put on for a moisturizer after you cleanse at night?

I also have oily skin, sucks BUT us with oily skin will get fewer wrinkles that someone with dry skin so YAY!

What I do- AT night only, I use a gentle cleanser Cerave with a face brush (I love my face brush, great for exfoliating), moisturize with Cerave cream( I really love this stuff, even tho its thicker it doesnt make me greasy at all!) with a few drops of tea tree oil into my moisturizer. In the morning, I splash my face with water and put a light layer of moisturizer on. Serums are great since they are so light.

Do you use blotting papers before reapplying powder middle of day? They help ALOT. If you dont get rid of the oil, the powder just sits on top if it.

Hope some of this helps!

I find that Proactive works/has a good balance to it.  I tried the salicylic face wash and be warned that it can OVER dry your skin- mine started peeling it got so dry.

This is my go-to holy grail product when I can’t stand the oily T-zone. It not only even out the imperfections but also hydrates and mattifies all at the same time. It kept my skin shine free for hours too without any of the dryness!

I would also suggest blotting the shine with a kleenex by pressing onto the skin- it takes away the shine without taking away too much oil. I read that if the skin is too dry, the skin reacts by producing more oil thus the oiler skin.

I have very oily skin.

This seems to help:

Morning wash with Cetaphil then scrub with apricot scrub

Apply moistuizer before putting on makeup

 

Night I wash again with Cetaphil then with Dermalogica face wash

Apply benzoyl peroxide gel to zits and oily areas.

@raisedonrobbery:  I agree with everything you said! I love cerave, it makes my skin feel so much better. I haven’t used a face brush–maybe I’ll try it! I use a St. Ives apricot scrub. 

 

I also second the suggestion for the oil wipes during the day. You’d be amazed at how much they can pick up!

@sayanything:  Isn’t cerave awesome?! Like seriously, its so cheap, so gentle and keeps my acne AWAY! Who would have thought?! The face brush is amazing, i got it from sephora. I love to exfoliate, and i use the brush everyday to get rid of makeup. I used to use the apricot scrub but it was too much for everyday use.

 @futuremrsk18:  Trust me when I say you will not be disappointed with cerave. Just google cerave reviews and you will see how everyone loves that stuff! I have extremely acne prone skin, used to get cystic sized pimples with an oil shine like no other but cerave has saved my skin. Oh, and tretinoin cream helped too 🙂

I use Neutrogena alcohol-free toner all over my face and Clean&Clear oil-free moisturizer on my T-zone and it works perfectly.

@futuremrsk18:  Yep I’ve been using the cerave cream moisturizer for about a year now, and just started using the cerave cleanser. It is very gentle, kind of like a lotion cleanser. It is great for removing make up. But considering that you do have acne prone skin, just like myself, using a facial brush really makes all the difference. I never cleanse my skin without using the facial brush. Or I will break out. Exfoliating is key! Tea tree oil helps with oil, and acne. Love that stuff.

I dont really wear foundation on a daily basis, right now I have been using BB Cream Skin70 Hot Pink. I bought it on ebay. I LOVE it! It seriously helps heal my blemishes. And it doesn’t make me greasy at all.

I think the Revlon one would be really nice. I have a Revlon foundation for oily skin and its awesome. My skin only shines around my nose hours later.
