So I was browsing Instagram today and saw something very exciting!! There were several pictures of new Sunday Riley products that I haven't seen mentioned anywhere before. One was an oil (possibly replacing Artemis, since it's being retired?) called UFO Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil. It's a 1.5% salicylic acid dry oil aimed at oily to combination skins and is supposed to target blackheads, acne and signs of aging. There's also a interesting sounding product called Martian Mattifying Gel Toner, though I couldn't find a clear picture of it. Apparently the oil and the toner have already launched in some Sephora stores! I know there are a lot of Sunday Riley lovers here, so I thought it was strange that I haven't heard anyone talking about this! Neither Sephora nor Sunday Riley has mentioned the products at all, so perhaps the stores put it out too early?? I'm very curious, does anyone have any information about it? *Photo credits go to Themakeuprepublicofficial on Instagram
I suffer from an extremely oily T-zone and acne scars, so need to use a full-coverage foundation. I have gone through so many products trying to find something that will smooth out my face and not melt immediately. The best I've found so far (and they're not great) is either Laura Mercier Silk Creme or Tarte Amazonian Clay foundations and Smashbox Photo Finish Oil-Free Pore Minimizing primer. BUT I can not find a moisturizer that actually mattifies and/or doesn't look cakey with foundation. I'm using Kate Somerville toner and was put on a First Aid Beauty skin care regimen after my SECOND Sephora makeover (the products aren't doing much for me). I'm also using Josie Maran argan oil at night (also not helping). Moisturizers I've tried are Sephora, Clinique, Caudalie, Peter Thomas Roth, First Aid Beauty. None mattify and all look cakey with foundation. And yes, I leave at least 15 minutes before applying each step to try and allow them to dry. I am using a foundation brush to apply foundation, and patting it with a beauty blender. Nothing works! Any suggestions? I'm at the end of my rope.
hi ladies, I noticed that I have slight rosacea. Usually I just have that during the wintertime. Is it possible that the sun can cause that? What do you recommend? Cremes? Toners? Or some sprays? Thank you! N
I have oily/sensitive/acne prone skin and have been looking for a good moisturizer with SPF that won't irritate my skin. I recently tried Philosophy Renewed Hope with SPF 25 (only because I use the night cream and its amazing) but the SPF version is horrible for oily skin. What are the ones that work best for you?
Hello friends, I've always had relatively oily skin, but it has gotten especially oily this past month or so. I wash my face with cleanser twice everyday, and I have also tried a number of different masks (from Caudalie, Caolion, etc.). I was wondering if anybody could recommend a good foundation/translucent powder (or any makeup product, really) that could help minimize my oiliness? Something light or natural would be preferable, as I've never really worn makeup before. Mask recommendations would be appreciated as well! Thanks!
Hey, I would like to know what you all wearig under the makeup.....what kind of moisturizer etc. I was using the hydra veil from illamasque. but that makes me look to shiny, even to i love the product itself......maybe i'll try the matt veil from the same product line.. what can you recommend though?
I'm currently using the First Aid Beauty Mattifying Oil Free Moisturizing Gel and it's doing nothing for me. Can't wait until the tube is empty. I'm considering splurging on the Drunk Elephant B Hydra Intensive Hydration Gel but wanted some opinions on it since it's so pricey. I use the CeraVae PM moisturizer at night and would prefer not to use the AM in the morning before my makeup.
I have super oily yet very clear skin and I wanted to know what I could use to help keep my makeup on and looking good throughout the day. I use primer and setting spray but the amount of oil in my skin always starts to break up and ruin my makeup throughout the day and its so aggravating; I have no clue what to try to help fix this
Hello! I'm 24 years old & I have combo oily skin. Some months ago, I had a really bad breakout due to stress (cystic acne-like) and only lasted like 2 or 3 months thanks to some treatments my dermatologist recommended (antibiotics, prescribed face wash and topical ointments). Now my skin is under control; I haven't had a bad breakout in, I would say, 3 months? I only have one or two pimples that will show up when my period is about to start or if I'm ovulating. I would like to use something that doesn't mistreat my skin (that doesn't cause too much redness, dryness and doesn't make me breakout), that controls the oils and prevents acne. My question is: Which is better suited for me, Clinique Great Skin, Great Deal Set for Combination Oily Skin (I TEM 1599422) or Clinique Acne Solutions Clear Skin System Starter Kit ( ITEM 1027499) ? Oh, and I also live on an island, so it's always hot and I don't know if that information helps for when you are trying to help me. Thank you all in advance!
Hi! So I have VERY oily skin and was hoping to find advice to get clear skin. I often get acne but my biggest problem is acne scars and uneven skin tone (redness, etc). I also get a TON of oil on my face after a few hours, specially around my nose and chin. any advice on products or things I can do?
I have oily skin and I use Laura Merciers oil free tinted moisturizer. Do I need to wear primer or moisturizer with it? Or can I just apply the tinted moisturizer to my face after cleansing and toning?
My skin is the bane of my existence. I have tried low and top-shelf solutions, all natural, Proactive, Acutane, creative visualization, raw veganism (ewwww) and nothing works. my pimples are small, around my hair and jaw-line. I also have a scattering of little flesh-toned bumps all over my face. My Clairisonic used to take care of those, but it seems it's not effective anymore. My skin is also VERY oily. I drink tons of water, don't smoke, workout regularly, have a relatively healthy diet, etc., and I get plenty of sleep. I do however, have a lot of stress (work 50+ hrs a week, in grad school). I've also started getting little pimples on my neck which never happened before. Currently I'm using the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De-Tox cleanser, Proactiv toner and the Shisheido Ibuki moisturizer. It worked for the first few weeks, but now my skin is worse than ever and the moisturizer just feels sticky on my skin. I need help! It's so expensive to keep trying new products only to have them fail and the Sephora staff always recommends products specially formulated for acne but those harsh ingredients just dry my skin and make it itchy and more prone to breakout. Any suggestions for a gentle, effective regimen? Thanks!!! XOXO
Hello beauties, I need your help with my skin care routine. I didn't care much about until a couple months ago! I live close to Ottawa and in Germany. Every couple months I fly, which makes my skin very dry for a Dareus afterwards! Any recommendations what I can do here? Right now, I just use a moisturizer from nivea for combination skin. I have a special moisturizer though that I put on just when I wear makeup. It's a German brand. It makes the makeup last longer too. To clean I use a cleanser/facewash from Neutrogena. Extra gentle. I was thinking of buying the cleanser from Cetapil because I heard good things about it..... But I haven't really found a moisturizer that I really really like. And I'm looking for a real skincare routine! Right now, I try the philosophy moisturizer. Hope in a jar! That's so far the best I ever had. (When I'm in Canada) When I'm in Canada my face is just a like oily but in Germany mostly an hour after I applied the make-up or cream it is very very oily. If I wouldn't have makeup on, I probably would wash my face! Lol But the skin in my nose is so dry (just when I'm in Germany). What can you recommend? Thank you!
Hello all. I'm 30 years old and still dealing with oily skin. SIGH! Lately, I've had a real issue with my foundation and powder becoming cakey after only a few hours. I feel like my skin is getting worse, and I need some advice on a foundation and powder product that won't make me look horrible after a few hours of wear. I typically use Tarte products, because I like the fact the company uses fewer harsh chemicals, but they have been letting me down lately. Any suggestions or advice is much appreciated. Thanks!
I have oily skin and wanted to know good brands for cleansers, toner, moisturizer and eye cream. I want a brand that is hydrating but keeps my skin matte and will help when I apply my pore control bb cream.
I have oily skin in entire t-zone, and some pores on cheeks. I have tried so many primers to help. I read everywhere silicone helps with my issues. So I keep trying, and swear all they do is make my makeup slide off. My makeup looks perfect after application, but within an hour yuck. I do not like heavy matte foundations either. Anyone else find primers and foundations with silicones just don't work for their oily skin? I have a good skincare routine and just can't find a makeup routine that works. Or maybe I just have to accept I will have to blot several times a day forever.
I purchased Bobbi Brown's Foundation and it's insanely liquidy. Normally my skin is absolutely fine, not dry or oily, but this foundation brings out oil around my nose and chin a little bit. I was curious what a good mattifying primer was for skin that doesn't have that much oil? P.S. Is mattifying spelled with one "t" or two?
My skin is a combination of oily and normal. My t-zone is oily and my cheeks are completely fine. However, when I put on foundation my forehead kepis very flaky. I exfoliate once a week and I put gel moisturizer on my face after. How do I fix this?
Hi lovely ladies and gentleman, I'm new to the sephora beauty talk community and I wanted to ask you all for some tips on skincare products such as face cleansers, face masks, moisturizers, skin toners and primers for oily skin. I can't seem to find anything to help me control my oily skin. If you make any tips of recommendations i'd really appreciate it ALSO any good foundations for oily skin, and best setting sprays and setting powders?
I am in my 20s and have oily skin. Even though I put a pore control bb cream I still get shiny and oily during the day. Blotting paper barely helps. I use Cetaphil Gentle cleanser and their moisturizing cream along with a Japanese brand toner and it still gets oily. Are there any brands to make my skin smoothe, and matte?
Hello, I have really oily skin in my T-zone. I am looking for a foundation that makes my skin look more flawless. I am currently using the Beyond Perfecting foundation by Clinique. I think its good for the first few hours but after that I can literally just wipe it off my face and my pores are very noticeable. I apply my foundation with a beauty blender. I'd like to find a foundation that lasts longer and controls the oil and doesn't make my pores stand out. I also use the Marc Jacobs face primer. Any advice for a more flawless poreless look?
Hello, wondering what everyone suggests for a skincare routine for someone who is 32 and has oily skin and large pores. I'm looking for skincare that is not too expensive. I am currently using Clinique Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser, Toner #3 and Smart Night Custom Repair Anti Aging Moisturizer. I am currently not using a Exfoliator. Not sure what is a good one to invest in. Wondering what everyone else uses before I reorder the same stuff.
