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 don't know anything about this stuff. I've never worn a primer before and have yet to find a good moisturizer. I was hoping someone could recommend me some products that would make all 3 of those items go well together (as in their ingredients not cancelling each other out, causing break outs if mixed, as well as not making it look or feel excessive). If a primer that doubles as a moisturizer exists, then that would probably be ideal since my skin might be too oily to require both? But I want my foundation to look better and my skin does get flaky in places if not moisturized. I currently use: cleanser, exfoliation, toner;;; moisturizer, straight to foundation, and then powder if I'm oily/feel myself getting oily Things you might need to know: Skin Type: combination-oily? -Shine on forehead, nose, sometimes chin -Flaky on the bottom of the cheeks near the mouth, sometimes nose, sometimes forehead (even though those places are also oily) Acne?: -blackheads (nose, a little between brow, a little on chin) -- don't know why -seldom get cysts (chin) but that's usually hormonal -prone to getting closed whiteheads (forehead, a little on chin) -- so the product can't be pore clogging please D: Goal/look I desperately want: -hide oily skin -keep shine away -not needing to touch up on face powder/blot oil constantly -fill/hide pores that foundation fails to do -I want a matified/airbrushed look to last for as long as possible thanks to the product I'm wearing (I heard some of them can somehow absorb the oil throughout the day?) The foundation I use is: Clinique pore refining solutions. -Not looking to change this product. -Works great but I want it to improve. -(flakyness shows, -**oilyness doesn't stay hidden**, -redness from scarring shows, -pores get hidden on the nose but **don't get filled/hidden as well on forehead**) **=thing I want solved the most The moisturizer I use is: Clinque dramatically different moisturizing gel for combination skin. -It leaves my skin oily and doesn't seem to absorb well. -Flaky parts take forever to recover. -(I use only half a pump since the full pump is too much.) I'm totally lost. Too many products here and I don't know anything! Please help, thank you. These are the ones that caught my interest but idk if they mesh well or do what I want it to do (absorb oil throughout day, refine/hide pores with my foundation) PRIMER: -SMASHBOX photo finish foundation primer -isn't vs oily skin specific MOISTURIZER: -SHISEIDO pureness matifying moisturizer oil-free -BOSCIA revitalizing hydration gel -isn't vs oil i think
Hi, I have very oily skin. I currently use clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel (I've tried the murad oil control mattifier, Mac oil control lotion) Sephora 'tricks of the trade' anti shine primer Bare essentials bare mineral Matte foundation (I've tried Mac studio fix fluid spf 15) and the tarte smooth operator micronized clay finishing powder Even though these products are oil free and should help my skin stay matte. THEY DO NOT HELP AT ALL I wanted to ask you guys what you use if you have oily skin. I am open to suggestions to moisturizer, primer, foundation and if needed finishing power. I am also open to the idea of liquid foundation. I was just under the impression that liquid foundation will cause your skin to become more oily Please help! Its summer and my face is soo oily I can fry samosas on it!!
I have combination skin that can get extremely oily all over especially in the hot summer. I need a full coverage mattifying foundation that can hold up all day. Right now, I use Benefit Porefessional to prime followed by L'Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle Foundation and MAC Blot powder. That seems to hold up pretty well through the day and gives me ok coverage, but the foundation accentuates dry patches like crazy. I also have a lot of hyperpigmentation and scarring from acne so I would like to use a full coverage foundation. I have heard really good things about Kat Von D foundation and I was really curious about that as well as anything anyone could suggest. Thank you
Here is my regimen Morning Wash with Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser Sometimes I use Renee Rouleau Lemon Bioflavanoid toner Boscia antioxidant moisturizer Night Renee Rouleau Aloe Cleansing Milk with Clarisonic to remove makeup Boscia Detoxifying Black Cleanser Sometimes I use witch hazel with tea tree oil Philosiphy Help Me Retinol Renee Rouleau Skin Correcting Serum I still have quite a few clogged pores on my skin and beside my nose and between my eyebrows and I also have blackheads ALL over my nose. I get hormonal acne and I have combination skin. My skin is not sensitive at all...I can use quite a lot of harsh products. I was looking at Kate Somerville Exfolikate or REN AHA Concentrate but I'm not sure which one to get. I also want to fade some acne scars I have..Would either of these help with that? Or do you guys recommend something else?
I need your guys feedback/help! I can't seem to find a good foundation for my oily skin! Anyone have any good recommendations? The foundation can be any formula! Let me know what has worked best for you! Thanks! <3 glittermania13
Hi everyone! This is my first time posting because I'm so fed up and wanted some advice. I'm 25 years old with combination skin. Oily forehead and cheeks and dry around chin area. I've struggled with acne forever and tried everything. I keep getting acne on my cheeks. Also, just for context, I do have a hormonal imbalance and am taking bc for it. I wash, tone, and use moisturizer, but I notice later in the day that my cheeks are red and my face looks shiny and greasy with large pores on my cheeks. Here's the deal: I have no idea what products to use and am overwhelmed whenever I look something up. Primers, bb creams, cc creams, mineral, matte...it's a foreign language to me. I was thinking about coming in for a consultation but I feel like an idiot b/c everyone my age seems to know what they're doing and I don't even know the basics! Also I live in a humid region and was wondering about makeup routines. When it's so hot, how do you get your primer/foundation/everything else to stay on without your face looking like its melting! Helppp
I have the oiliest skin ever, I have tired everything-Primers, Powders, blotting, nothing works. Right now I am using the Murad primer, Lancome long lasting foundation (the 24 hour one)-I love it, but it makes my skin oily so fast and I'm just using a clinique powder...please help!! I feel like I've tried so many things and nothing works...O
Hey everyone, I just hav a question to ask about a goo moisturizer. I have dry but oily skin and is prone to get acne every now and then I like something that is more natural, and organic (but doesnt have to be if its amazing) I have pores, redness, and my skin is rather always warm could you recomment me an amazing moisturizer that would be suited for my skin? The sales associate recommended me the mositurizer from nude today, but i find that theyre way too expensive, and when i searched online for their review, people didn't think they did too much of their job compared to its price please help me
I am looking for a tinted powder to add more coverage over my foundation. I now use MUFE HD powder to set my foundation, but I want something with more coverage. I need one that will add a little more coverage over my foundation to make my skin look flawless and also will help control my extremely oily skin? Any suggestions?
I am looking for ideas/recommendations for my very oily skin! I want to find out the best prodcuts to use for skin care, moisturizing, priming, makeup, and possibly even a finishing spray if it would work. By the end of the day, my face is SO oily!! All of my makeup looks terrible!!!
My face is pretty dry right after I wash it in the morning. I use the CVS brand of Cetaphil as my dermatologist suggested that when I told him how my face gets very red and splotchy. Not long after I use that moisturizer/lotion, my skin becomes oily and flaky especially in between my eyebrows and on my forehead. Can anyone suggest for me a decent priced product that I could use that would help moisturize my skin without causing flakes and oil? Thanks! Marissa
Hi, I am looking for a night cream that will help out with hyperpigmentation scars and give the skin a brighter look. I am currently debating between the Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial and the High Potency Night-A-Mins™ Mineral-Enriched Renewal Cream. Which one would I see more results with? Thanks!
I have very oily skin and am looking for a good moisturizer. I want something that is not greasy and does not make my skin oily. Something that my skin can absorb and not just sit on the surface. My skin also tends to flake which makes everything even worse and I have mild acne. I have tried Philosophy, Clinique, Murad, Proactiv, etc. Please help!
I'm currently using the Origins Vitazing moisturizer and I'm wondering how it compares to the Soap & Glory Glow Job moisturizer. I have oily, acne-prone skin. Has anyone tried both? Which do you like better?
I have oily skin and use my mom's bare minerals foundation and find that at the end of the day, especially on school days, the makeup looks splotchy, like it sort of melted in places, patchy, and clumpy, especially on my chin and I'm not sure why this is happening is it the makeup or the oiliness? If I put on less powder would it not look as patchy? Should I use a primer? Any good ones to suggest? Does anyone know why this happens? I'm new with this makeup thing so I really need some advice!
looks like DDF discontinued its sulfur mask (I can't find it here or on their site) and Peter Thomas Roth has an identical mask ... I've been using DDF mask for years and really like it. I checked out PTR at the store, and it seems to be identical to DDF ... isn't it? It seems like it's the same product under a different name.
My skin must also be sensitive because even oil free moisturizers break me out!!!! And what type of foundation do you use for 60 year old skin - I don't have that many wrinkles (that's one perk of oily skin) - but I still don't want to highlight the laughlines with thick foundation!!!!
