My skin is super oily. I have a hard time trying to find a foundation that will stay on all day and not look like a greasy mess. I am currently using Bare Minerals bareskin foundation. I love the coverage but it does not help my oily skin and almost makes it worse. I have also tried Naked foundation too and found it doesnt have enough coverage for me. Help!
I've always had combination skin, but over the last year or so, I've noticed that my skin had become excessively oily (to the point I'm shining like a disco ball within 2-3 hours of makeup application in the morning) and my pores have been enlarged. I've recently switched to Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless foundation, and Matte Translucent powder. I find these help to a degree, but now I'm looking for cleansers and toners that would work for very oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. Any suggestions?
Hi I have typical asian monolid eyes. they are a bit puffy and oily at times. I'm pretty lucky I have really long lashes (dont' need fake eyelash), but since it's puffy esp. in the morning when i wake up and tend to be oily(since my combo oily skin type), a lot of eyelash curlers (or i should say a regular one) don't work for me coz it's really easy to pinch my eyelid or corners of my eyes when i curl eyelash. Is there anyone in my shoes or does anyone have any tips on that?
Hi everyone! So I'm basically looking for the whole nine yards at this point. I've been content with my current and past cleansers and moisturizers but lately I've been feeling like my skin has almost started regressing? It looks like it could use some change so I'm open to all suggestions! Here's a few concerns I'd like to address for sure. but like i said WHOLE NINE YARDS Trouble Areas: -OILY TO COMBO SKIN-for the most part my skin is more on the oily side, however i noticed my skin tends to dry up around my eyebrows and mouth (don't know why those areas but that's it) -BLACKHEADS-hate them, have them. I feel like sometimes they are just so huge that its taking over my face & honestly makes me feel self conscious (which no one wants to feel) Currently using Biore black head strips & they work well for the most part, but I feel like there is more i can do to make them go away or at least be less noticeable -BRIGHTEN/EVEN SKIN TONE-I think i have pretty even skin tone, however sometimes i do get blemishes or redness on my face, also I feel like my skin is looking dull, so I'm looking for something to brighten it. Thanks i advance ! & remember the WHOLE NINE YARDS!(:
I have oily skin. I use good products for washing my face, but my makeup seems like it disappears a few hours after I put it on. If I don't use waterproof mascara and eyeliner, it is gone right away. I can never get eye shadow to stay and although I have used Estee Lauder in the past and like their cover up, I would love to hear any suggestions from Sephora! Thank you!
Im 16 and have mildly sensitive skin. My skin is quite difficult to explain because it is acne/oily but it is also quite dehydrated because i disrupted the moister barrier from using products with harsh chemicals. I was hoping that someone could recommend a cleanser, toner, moisturizer and spot treatment for me. I also have a Clarisonic and prefer products that are natural and I do not want products that have harsh chemicals. Thank you so much
I continue to have oily, shiny skin, esp. in my T-zone. My foundation matches my skin tone fairly well, except it can at times look cakey and ghost-like--turns out HORRIBLE in pictures sometimes. i have tried so many different foundations, i really would like to avoid having to blend 2 different shades if possible. I have tried: bare minerals loose powder foundation, chanel mat lumiere long-lasting matte liquid foundation, laura mercier oil free supreme liquid foundation, benefit hello flawless powder foundation, benefit hello flawless oxygen wow foundation, bobbi brown long-wear even finish foundation, estee lauder double wear powder foundation, makeup forever mat velvet liquid foundation, NARS powder foundation, and a host of drug store foundations. Current makeup/skin regimen: Wash face 2x per day with Clean & Clear Deep Action Cream Cleanser (oil-free) solution (have used it over the years, but skin has never been as oily as it is now.) Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer w/ SPF 15 (all skin types) Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer (oil-free) Bare Minerals Correcting Concealer in TAN 2 Bare Minerals READY Foundation w/SPF 20 in R330 Tarte Amazonian Clay Long-Wear Blush in "exposed" Bare Minerals Mineral Veil Tarte not-so-slick oil blotting papers (as needed) I'm also currently on a prescription antibiotic for my skin (face, back & shoulders), Doryx DR 200mg. Not sure if this could contribute to anything but thought i'd list it anyway. Any suggestions would be great. My skin is super sensitive but I'm open to hearing tips for combatting this oil! i don't know how girls' makeup lasts so long, mine doesn't even last past a few hours. also, I'm hesitant to get matched to a new foundation, but again open to hearing suggestions. I'm filipino so my skin is kinda in between tones.
Hello! I'm 20 years old and have combination/oily skin. It is acne prone, and somewhat sensitive..... I have been using proactiv for a few years now and it has helped a great deal with clearing my skin up, but unfortunately the price isn't doing my wallet any good and I want to try new products. I am looking to find new products for my skin such as a good exfoliator and toner. I hate having pimples and blemishes on my face, so I'm looking for some amazing products that have helped other girls with the same type of skin as me. Would anyone be able to recommend to me a good exfoliator and toner for combination/oily skin??
Hello! This is my first time posting, so I hope I am doing this correctly! I know this same question has been asked before, as I have read through many other threads on this topic, but so far most suggestions have not yet solved my issue, so I thought I would ask on my own behalf. i am looking for any and all product suggestions to help combat oily skin.i am mostly oily in my tzone, especially the forehead. I wake up every morning with enough oil on my ore head to soak up 1-2 oil blot sheets. I am willing to try new skincare products, primers, foundation, etc. I have already tried more products than I can probably remember! But anything anyone would like to suggest I would be more than happy to try! Thank you in advance!
I have really oily skin. It got worse when I moved from East Coast to California and it may be that California weather is so dry. I wake up in the morning my face is oil. I wash it and 1 hr later, my face is oil. I stopped using the oil sheets b/c i heard it can produce more. I have a ton of acne & scars at the moment. I'm deciding whether to start Accutane. If anyone has any opinions on it, please let me know. I am still learning what works best for my skin, but i really want to give up. I feel that I'm not doing something correctly and maybe Accutane can fix it? I have used neutrogena oil-free sensitive skin moisturizer before and it worked. The combination skin one made my face really oily. I use Murad skin perfecting lotion. It makes it feel non-greasy. This is my regimen right now. Please help me correct what I've been doing wrong: 1)cleanser: (dermatologist's personal brand contains 2% glycolic & 2% salicylic acid) & cetaphil daily facial cleanser (i heard cetaphil dries out skin...) 2) toner: Lancome clarifying exfoliating toner & BioSpecific rehydration toning water mist 3) apply my prescibed acne topicals 4) moisturizer: murad skin perfecting 5) spf 15 oil free sunscreen make up: -lancome regenergie lift makeup foundation - MAC mineralize skin finish natural (I use a sponge to apply. how often should i change it?) I want to try the gel moisturizers though. Any recommendations? Also I want to try the Shiseido Pureness balancing softener. I heard it will allow the moisturizer to go more deeply into the skin? Please advise me. Thank you
Hello! I'm 16 and I have combination skin. So I tend to get quite oily in the T-Zone. Could you maybe suggest a good primer to use underneath my foundation that will help with the oil on my face? Thank you
I'm 19 years old and I wash my face every time I get in the shower with a scrub as well as a clean and clear product with bursting beads. I know people don't usually like products that dry the skin out, but that's usually what I go for. When I get out the shower my skin feels great, not too dry and not oily, but even before the day ends my face has more oil then I'd like on it. The only parts of my face that ever get oily are my forehead, temple area, and around my nose and occasionally my chin. Other then that my skin is fine, and even though it does get oily I barely break out but let's face it. Oily skin is no fun, nor is it attractive. I want something that's can use that will keep my skin less oily throughout the day
Okay, I'm 20 years old and I've never really done anything skincare wise for my skin other than masks so now I'm wanting to get a skincare routine together to clear up and improve my skin. What are the standard products that I would need for that?
I recently moved from a very dry climate to a very humid climate and my skin is not liking it. I used to have combination skin, leaning more towards dry and now it is quite oily. I've been using the Dior Forever Flawless foundation, followed by B.E. Mineral Veil, followed by Urban Decay DeSlick spray and it seems to work for a few hours but I'm still an oil slick halfway through the day. Any suggestions on a good setting powder? I've been trying to do research, but all the products I've looked at have had pretty "meh" reviews. Thanks!
I'm looking for a 3 in 1 product for my oily, mature skin. Some moisture (don't need a lot with my oily skin), broad spectrum SPF and primer. It's the "primer" feature that seems illusive. Many claim to also be a primer, but they sure don't act like a primer!

Okay.. I dont know if its usual for aged 22 girls but I have HUGE pores . I've tried a bunch of stuff to help but they all end up not working too well. (Ex: Caudalie Beauty Elixir, Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizer, etc...) I really need someone's advice on my pore issue : ( Thanks!
I have oily skin, but I am fond of the dewy glowing look! Not the oily shining look! I want to know exactly how I can create this look? I know I need to do strong oil control at skin care and base, so that I can use a dewy/glowy foundation. But I see on Korean girls, even before makeup their skin is SUPER glowing. How can I get that??? I was trying to attach a photo but somehow I can't I'll figure how to attach a photo. Pls advise me how oily skin can get glowing dewy skin without the oily shine!!!! thank you!!!!

I am 45 years old and have fought oily skin, hormonal breakouts and large pores all my life.

Mia 1 x daily AM Clinque 3 step cleanser, toner and moisterizing gel Hourglass primer Clinque Mat foundation or KVD foundation or BMinerals Still have to blot about two hours after makeup. Ugggh frustrating to say the least. Please help!

What color should i be wearing by the color IQ if the lancome powder matches perfectly? Anyone have and great long wearing powder foundations as well? Thanks guys; Im also a guy so the more natural the better too!
I have oily skin and I've used so many products for my face such as the garnier bb cream, benefit oxygen wow foundation, laura mercier tinted moustrizer, mac mineral moisture and maybelline dream mousse. So far, I liked the tinted moisturizer the best, but I want to try something new. I've never tried a powder, but I've heard the tarte loose powder is good. Is anyone willing to give me other examples, preferably a foundation, tinted moisturzer, bb or cc cream that is oil free, very natural and not too expensive?
Hello friends! I am always curious to know what people's skincare regimes are; how can a skincare fanatic not want to see what other people are using! My skin is very strange, it is combination (very) oily, dehydrated, and acne prone along with reactive to various products. Without further ado, here is my current skincare routine! Morning: Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Serum - Peter Thomas Roth Viz 1000 Hydrating Serum Moisturize - Fresh Rose Hydrating Gel Eye Cream - Fresh Lotus Eye Gel Night: Cleanse - Fresh Soy Face Cleanser Tone - FAB Facial Radiance Pads Hydratation Tone - 100% Pure Rose Water Treat - Kielhs Midnight Recovery Concentrate ** My nose is very breakout prone, so I do not apply any product to it during the day and use a prescription topical acne medication on it every night to stop the clogged pores ** Lips - Nuxe Reve de Miel Lip Balm Specific Days SUNDAY Shave Exfoliate - Clinique Face Scrub (Mens line) TUESDAY Glamglow Supermud Mask WEDNESDAY Shave SATURDAY Glamglow Powermud Mask And there you have it! My wonderful, yet crazy, skincare regime! I am EXTREMELY interested in seeing what your skincare regime is as I am new to the Advice Talks! I definitely look forward to seeing the different combinations of products and also looking to see what other products I could potentially use! I love Skincare! It's the best! Michael, xo
What's the best moisturizer for oily acne prone skin? I'm 23 and still get breakouts here and there. I usually wear Olay SPF 15 moisturizer under all my foundations and the all seem to be oxidizing on my face after a few hours.. Not sure if it's the moisturizer causing this or the foundation.. Currently, I'm trying out UD Naked skin and it seems to be breaking me out. I have used Hourglass Immaculate but I found it a little dry. Possibly looking into Estee Lauder Double Wear Light.. Not a makeup guru but if anyone has suggestions on foundations or moisturizer that would really help me.
