r and primer for very oily skin
Hi, I have very oily skin.
I currently use clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel (I've tried the murad oil control mattifier, Mac oil control lotion)
Sephora 'tricks of the trade' anti shine primer
Bare essentials bare mineral Matte foundation (I've tried Mac studio fix fluid spf 15)
and the tarte smooth operator micronized clay finishing powder
Even though these products are oil free and should help my skin stay matte. THEY DO NOT HELP AT ALL
I wanted to ask you guys what you use if you have oily skin.
I am open to suggestions to moisturizer, primer, foundation and if needed finishing power. I am also open to the idea of liquid foundation. I was just under the impression that liquid foundation will cause your skin to become more oily
Please help! Its summer and my face is soo oily I can fry samosas on it!!
I had a total hysterectomy and the hormones have made my face an oil slick!! So, I have the exact same problem but, I have found the solution!!!!
Believe it or not! Estee Lauder!
My mother gets those sample packages at the AAFES on the military base cheap! So, anyway long story short.
If you just want the make up and primer you start with; Matte Perfecting Primer and for the Make UP you have several choices; Double Wear Light (which is what I'm wearing right now for summer) it's a little bit lighter. But it stays put all day. they also have Double Wear Stay In Place Make Up (which I'll get some in the fall). I didn't like the concealer but they have one. They have a Double Wear Stay In Place Powder Make UP ( I haven't tried but I will) then there is the Double Wear Mineral Rich Loose Powder Make Up; I'm on the fence on this one. I really like my Mally Powder. When my powder in my purse runs out I'll be getting the Double Matte Oil Control Pressed Powder.
Now, the best stuff is before the primer put on Clear Difference Advanced Oil-Control Hydrator and then DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 15---then the primer and then make up, etc.
It can be an expensive plan but, I was lucky as she got me a sample set and the make-up in the set was full size!! And the primer only takes a smidge! So I have only bought the Clear Difference and the DayWear Lotion. But let me tell you; it's made a HUGE difference! I've noticed the more I use them; the less oil my skin produces.
The web site is very user friendly and be sure to go and see the web video on how to apply their makeup and face powder as it really helps to control the oil the way they show you how to lay the powder on your skin.
Go to the Estee Lauder web site and find the How to Videos and you'll find them and lots more.
Sorry to run on and on but I NEVER go to all of the trouble of responding to these beauty advice things; but this time I really had to as I had to tell everybody how wonderful this line really is and how happy I am that I found something that really works.
So, I hope this helps. Go to E-Bay and Estee Lauder too and start getting your oil under control too.
Best of luck,
