I have normal/dry skin everywhere on my face but my nose is soooooooo oily. makeup forever setting powder, loran mattifying primer, deslick oil absorbing primer on nose, blotting papers…. the list goes on of what I use,try to control it. I use my clarasonic with purity cleanser and not even that helps. has anyone tried something with great results?
I have tried everything at this point to stop the oil from forming on my forehead. Nothing seems to work. Not even setting powder. I have changed face washes and even wash my face in the morning when I wake up. This is starting to drive me bonkers. Any suggestions on how to stop the oil from forming in my t-zone. Any products that work well? Please help me out here.
I have tried Smashbox and MAC primers, Tarte,Make Up forever, Clinique, and Lancome foundations, and clinique skin treatment and it all seems to make my skin more oily. I have even tried the Milk of Magnesia primer! Any suggestions?
I love the look of satin finish makeup, but I have to use extremely matte products on my face because I'll begin to shine. Like the sun. After five minutes of putting on my makeup. I can keep on my eye makeup with Urban Decay's eye primer, but all oil control foundations are useless and anything that does help makes me look so matte. I don't wan't to look caked on, I just want to cover my scars and spots. Any suggestions? I currently wash with benzoyl peroxide, apply a prescription acne medicine, and then use Clinique's Moisturizing Gel to keep my cheeks and eyelids from getting flaky.
I'm in my early 40's and looking to revamp my much needed skincare routine. I'll need recommendations on cleanser, toner, moisturizer, exfoliator and eye creams. Skin concerns: Extremely oily skin especally in the t-zone (yes even at my age), uneven skin tone and the beginning of fine lines around my eyes. I currently use Clinique Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser with my Clarisonic, Clinique #4 Toner and Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. I feel I may be producing too much oil by using these products rather than curbing it. Any additional recommendations for foundation primer, foundation, setting powder, bronzer, finishing powder and a setting spray would be GREATLY welcomed! Make-up concerns same as mentioned above regarding excessive oil control throughout the day. I'm currently using Becca Pore Perfecting Primer (I absolutely hate those with silicone because it feels like bacon grease on my face sliding around), UD Surreal Cream to Powder Foundation, UD Mattifying Powder, Naked Bronzer/Blush and Too Faced Primed and Poreless Powder and MUFE Fix and Mist to finish off the face. I'd love for your input and any recommendations you can send my way! As as always, it's greatly appreciated!
I started off using Shiseido products but noticed that when I add a new product to my regime my skin become very oily and unbalanced. I was thinking, since I use more than a toner and a moisturizer that my cleanser and toner should be gentle and pure. I switched to Purity by Philosophy and I'm using LUSH's Tea Tree Water for a toner. I use Boscia's White Mask about once a month and LUSH's Mask of Magnaminty once a week. I use a serum and a dark spot corrector. My goal is to have even tone, smooth, acne-free skin and was wondering what else I might do to achieve my goal other than what I'm doing along with vitamins and water. I know us Beauty Insiders have the answer to everything ;-) Thanks in advance!
I am looking for a gentle exfoliator to use on the night i do not use my clarisonic. I was something that wont dry my skin or irritate it and can help remove death skin and with my uneven skin tone. I do not use my clarisonic on the days i dont wear makeup u just use my Philosophy Purity cleanser. I have these two in mind if anyone has tried them and can let me know how it works.
I've seen SK-II mentioned again and again in interviews with celebrities (Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, some models and stuff) and it's carried in Sephora, so it's kind of within reach. I was wondering has anyone tried it? which product and is it good for oily skin? I've brought stuff for my mom, but the main complaint was it's too creamy/thick since she have 100% oily skin. I think La Mer's gonna be a bit too thick, and I was eyeing the SK-II Essence for change of season/especially tiring days (but no pimples or oily mess allowed).
I recently purchased the Murad Acne Complex Kit, and I love it. However, I have combination oily skin. The kit is taking care of my acne, but my skin still becomes oily and shiny throughout the day. I wasn't sure if I could use anti-shine products with the Murad regimen. Suggestions?
I have really oily skin and my skin tone is one where I usually have to blend two different shades together to get something close to my skin color (I'm filipino). I've used a bunch of different foundations including Laura Mercier, NARS, Chanel, Makeup Forever, Estee Lauder, Benefit, and Bare Minerals, not to mention a handful of drug store foundations. I'm back to Bare Minerals mineral foundation-the compact vs. loose powder (Golden Tan) because a) it's the best for my skin in terms of not breaking out crazily and b) best matches my skin tone. However I'm starting to get really oily again and i think its partly because of the primer i had started using (Hourglass). i loved the texture of it but i was like dripping oil within hours of use. can someone recommend a good foundation, moisturizer, and primer? and poss. something to combat the oil/shine?
Hi, I want to add a toner to my skin care regime. I have oily skin I would love to have a toner than smooths my skin but mainly helps balance my oiliness. I prefer them to not smell like alcohol. Also, I want it to be cleansing since I want to use it to clean my skin in the mornings. Any recommendations? Thanks!
Okay all, I'm on the hunt for a new moisturizer to wear at night after my scrubs/masks/etc. I have been using Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief and I like it okay, but I've been using it so long I'm sure there is something else out there. I have oily skin so anything too creamy or thick makes my skin crazy. Any ideas???
I have been debating on getting one for a really long time and I have heard good and bad things, I would love your input if you use one or have used (why you stopped using it). I have a really good skin regimen right now and I am a little scared to use something new because I have a fear that all my hard work to keep my skin feel and look good will mess up. I am currently using the following products: Morning: Eminence Organics Clear Skin Probiotic Cleanser Red Currant Mattifying Toner Red Currant Moisturizer SPF 30 Cucumber Eye Gel Night: Eye/Makeup Remover Clear Skin Cleanser Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoiliant Stone Crop Hydrating Toner Rosehip Whip Moisturizer Wild Plum Eye Cream Once a week: Pear and Poppy Microderm polisher Hungarian Herbal Mud Treatment I know you probably don't need to know everything I use, but it gives you a sense if I am doing too much or what brush head to buy. I have oily skin, hormonal breakouts, it can be a little sensitive at times, and I struggle with blackheads on my nose and cheeks. Thanks so much in advance for any feedback! <3
I have really oily skin and need help with finding the right kind of makeup/ face powder and foundation (you could fry chicken with all the oil on my face lol) also my sister has acne and needs help finding good makeup
I am 32 years old my face is really greasy for a very long time now. I have large pores on my cheeks. When i do wash my face at night within half an hour my forehead, my nose and my cheeks gets oily again. I tried everything. I have little pimples which is not noticable but its really bumpy when i touch my face. I just want the grease to go away so i can have nice complextion for once in my life.
Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone with oily/acne prone skin has tried Skyn Iceland. How did it work for you? I've been using Murad and it's cleared up my skin for the last year but it's not meant to live on forever. I do have some hyperpigmentation and I bought a sampler but I wanted to know if anyone had a bad reaction to it before I tried it.
Loved this gel from Boscia, did wonders for my oily skin with excellent mattifying power. BUT here's the catch, it's way to expensive for the amount of use I get out of it. I've tried Clinique's gels and lotions and they just don't work for me. Does anyone have any suggestions for products exactly like Boscia? Any comparisons to Philosophy Take a Deep Break or Origins Rejuvenating Moisturizer? Thanks for the help!
