SOS! OILY SKIN FROM H3LL!
I have suffered from oily skin for my entire life. I try to be thankful because I know I'll continue to have fewer wrinkles when I'm older however, for right now I want to die!    I have acne prone skin as well (as if it doesn't already go hand in hand!) and I'm currently looking to totally revamp my skincare/makeup routine. I've used foundations such as Kat Von D lock it foundation which moved whenever I would even touch my face, transferring to my hands, you could actually SEE where I had touched my face because the foundation would transfer and separate so badly. I've also tried Nars foundation, Tarte Shape tape concealer which I actually love, but don't think it's great for my oily skin sadly I'm obsessed with Laura Mercier setting powder, and have tried some drugstore foundations, but everything seems to literally want to slide off my face.    I have used benefit porefessional primer for about six months and though I love it, I also don't think this is great for oily skin. My Becca poreless primer seems to work well, but I'm open to other suggestions as well.   I'm thinking a lot of this could be helped over time with the right skin care. The right wash, toner, moisturizers, and masks could really do the trick as I notice the difference with masks almost immediately, my face loves them! Any good face/sheet mask suggestions for oily/acne prone skin? I've read that I should be hydrating my skin more even though it is oily... I'll literally take all the help I can get!   Thanks! xx

Wedding makeup for newby
I'm looking for makeup for my wedding in September that'll hold up in heat and sweat/tears/possible rain. (I know I'm asking a lot but I have no idea where to start. I am overwhelmed by so many choices at Sephora) I have very sensitive skin that breaks out with most of the covergirl, neutrogena, and Avon foundations.  I recently tried tarte rainforest of the sea foundation, and I love it. Hasn't broken me out yet! Will it cause flashback? I need a blush that won't disappear in 2 hours. What is a good one? Also would highlight be a bad idea since I'm oily?  This world of makeup is confusing. What is a good place to start with the start of it all being my wedding?

Cheap Primers for Oily Skin
Okay y'all, I need some advice. I have oily skin problems, mostly around my nose and on my chin. I use a matte foundation and it's AMAZING, but half way through my day, my oil gets so bad to the point it will show through and crack my foundation causing it to look all patchy and eventually come off. Can anyone recommend a good Matte primer that's below $20? I had a few in mind, but I wanted some recommendations first. Thanks!! 😭💖

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!

Need advice
Hi everyone, hope you feel good and beautiful today.   So, actually, in the past I never did a make-up and was using different skin care products, never had something special, but now want to start and enter this beauty field and need advice from you and your experience. For my first step I want to ask you this, I have a problem as my skin is really oily and sensitive and because of that I have acne and make-up problems. I need couple good advice: 1. What are the best skin care products for oily skin + that have acne issues. 2. What cosmetics you use and which one fits better for this type of skin. 3. Which make-up fixer fits better. I will appreciate all advice from you. Thanks!

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!!

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

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!
