How do I keep my forehead pores from getting clogged with the oil from my bangs?
I recently got bangs, and the skin on my forehead has become so oily! Which products can I use, in the morning or the evening, to keep the pores on my forehead from getting clogged with all of the extra oil? I'm generally a pretty low-maintenance kind of girl, so I don't want to spend a ton of time using very expensive products. Thanks!

Don't leave hair products on the bangs they can transfer to the forehead, causing the issues. When you can push the bangs aside so the forehead can breathe. see post

Moisturizer for oily acne prone skin
I'm looking for a moisturizer suited for my skin type. I saw the new olehenriksen balance it all set (cleanser, toner and hydrator) and I read about the Jack Black double duty face moisturizer with SPF. I have oily acne prone skin. I'm not sure which one would be better for me, both seem to be good for oily skin but one focuses on reducing oil and the other has SPF, both of which I like. Which one should I get ? Or any recommendations?

skin care routine for oily/normal skin morning and night
Hi! I'm looking for a skin care routine for at night and a quick one in the morning. I am 16. My t zone is oily mostly around my nose and chin but the rest of my face is mostly normal. Also sometimes on my cheeks i get little bumps that aren't pimples their just bumps. I get very few pimples but when i do they tend to be on my nose. I don't really know what to get so a list of things for a routine would be great and if products are recommended as well that's awesome.

Oily Skin
Can anyone recommend ANY product (priner, foundation, cream etc) that will help with my oily skin. I use a smash box primer, smash box liquid foundation, Sephora powder, AND the urban decay setting spray. I work an office job so I don't generally "sweat" while at work. But by lunch my face is super oily, especially in my t-zone.   So any products that eliminate oily skin (without clogging pores) would be fantastic!!

Looking for a matte moisturizer?
  Hi,   I've identified my skin type as combination (oily in the t-zone, normal in the u-zone). I definitely need to moisturize, as my skin is dehydrated still, and I don't have a hard time finding a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer (my requirements are oil-free  (if it has only one,  MAYBE  two  oils, that's  okay) , hyaluronic acid , and the drying type of alcohol-free , and ideally  has SPF ), but recently I've hoped to find a moisturizer that when absorbed, leaves a matte finish . I've found products here and there with one and  maybe  two of these, but not all of them. Is there an oil-free moisturizer out there that leaves a matte finish, but still hydrates?    I'm considering Tata Harper Rebuilding Moisturizer , this seems to meet my reqs, is this good?

Moisturizer Rec's
I am in need of a new moisturizer. Currently, I have just run out of my stockpile of Olay's Fresh Effects: Dew Over gel moisturizer (which was discontinued) and I'm on the hunt for something new and more in line with my concerns. I did love that product, but while I did find my breakouts happened less frequently - it really didn't do much for oil control.    Concerns: I have HELLA oily skin. I eat blotting paper for breakfast and I am triple-glad that dewy/hi-lighter gleams are trending because oh em gee, I am a-gleaming 24/7. That said, I do get the occasional zit and I have noticed some fine lines creeping near my eyes and around my mouth.   Basically, I want a lightweight preferably gel moisturizer that can keep my oil production under control, while helping my skin transition into my thirties. Also, interested in night cream ideas as well.   Thank you for any and all suggestions!

Q. Oily Skin
I used to have dry patches and oily skin, but I've switched to using Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb, May Coop Raw Sauce, Son & Park Beauty Water, and I use St Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub as a cleanser. My skin has stopped being dry, but it's still oily. It's not as oily as it used to be but I really want to find a way or product(s) that would help my face not be so oily or shiny during the day. Also, I don't wear makeup.

Male Oily Skin and Deep Pores
Hello!  I have very oily skin and enlarged pores.  I currently am using the Clinique 3-Step and I have been using it for about 3-4 months.  I previously used Dermologica and some other random products.  Right now I use the 3 step-in the morning and then at night I use the Clinique City Block Charcoal Clenser in the evening (instead of the 3 Step Clenser) and use my Clarsonic.  I also use the Clinque Moisture Surge after using the gel moisterizer and I like the way it does feel.  I have stopped using it a few days to see if the moisture surge was causing the extra oil.  I am looking for products or regimines, things I can change to make my skin less oily and at least reduce the breakouts.  I can start doing something mid-day to cut down the oil, but the breakouts need to stop! haha.   Thank you for anyone's help!

Foundations for Oily Skin
Hi beauties!    I've been using the L'oreal infallible pro matte foundation for a while now and it's worked okay for my skin but I'm still searching for my holy grail. What foundations/shades would you guys recommend for oily/sensitive skin that will give me a natural finish that's not overly mattifying? I don't mind a demi-matte finish and really want to avoid looking cakey. I'm in the shade nc 25 in Mac pro long wear foundation and use 104 golden beige in the L'oreal infallible pro matte for reference.

Cleanser for Oily Skin with Not too Ugly Packaging?
Does anyone have any recommended cleanser for oily skin and the packaging is nice?   I have tried many cleansers and masks for the oily t-zone and pores but nothing really worked for me   Origin : still oily after washing my face. Fresh soy:  large pores afterwards Caudalie instant foaming : didn't clean the oil Kate Somerville detox : made my cheeks super dry Kate Somerville exfoliate foam : breakouts Kate Somerville gentle:  didn't clean the oil Clinique 3 steps : the toner had a strong smell and if I skipped the toner, the products had not effect Erno Laszno oil and sea mud soap : finally worked, but I prefer a simpler cleansing product   I heard other products that could work ( First Aid , Boscia, Philosophy ), but I would really prefer a nicer looking packaging.   Right now I'm considering the following products, does anyone know if any of these could work? Perricone MD citrus wash Amorepacific treatment cleansing foam (I really like the packaging) Sunday Riley Clay Cleanser (the packaging is okay) Or anything else?   I do use moisturizer twice a day and sunscreen during the day.   Thanks oxox
