Drunk Elephant for Oily Skin?
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.

Silicone Primers Help
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.

Free me from the cakey look!
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!

Best Skin care brands for oily skin?
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?

Looking for a skin care routine.........
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!

Foundation/Skincare
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?

Skin Care
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!

Super oily skin???
hello !! currently i have been using the COVER FX mattifying primer with anti-acne treatment, the mac PREP AND PRIME primer before my makeup. And the UD de - slick oil control setting spray when I am finished. I use the mac studio fix foundation (suppose to control oil, matte finish) and the MUFE 'Duo Matte powder foundation' to set. Sometimes I even bake with the COVER FX Illuminating Setting Powder.  I apply this all at about 6am. And before even 10am, my makeup is oily and I feel like its literally sliding/melting off my face. Im so confused to why none of this keeps my face matte and keeps my makeup on. Am I applying wrong, or do I need to use different products?? Does anybody have any tips or product recommendations on how to makeup matte all day on oily skin?? My skin is super oily!!! thank you to all!!

what is the best face wash for oily skin?
I struggle with oily skin, and I MUST carry my oil blotting sheets with me everyday to blot away the oil throughout the day. I've been trying to find a good face wash to help reduce oil, and I'm having a hard time on identifying a good product specifically for oily skin. I was using Proactiv previously, but wasn't satisfied with the results. So I now use Cetaphil, and I've been OKAY with it.   Another thing I should mention is that I wear very minimal makeup - I only put on mascara, and occasionally wear blush, but no foundation or concealer or anything like that. The times I have, my face felt very heavy because of my oily skin.   Any help/recommendations would be greatly appreciated - thanks all!

Daytime moisturizer suggestions for extremely oily/dehydrated skin
I have the most odd skin!! This post is really about suggestions for a daytime moisturizer for my extremely oily yet dehydrated skin but I would also welcome skin care suggestions. I do not have acne but have a lot of clogged pores and a few blackheads. My skin is extremely oily 30 minutes after makeup application, very large pores, very sensitive and many fine lines (due to the dehydration). When I first wake up my face looks great.  Then when I get out of the shower and my face is clean and wet, it looks great and feels the best it does all day. However, as the day wears on, it gets worse. I have to 'blot' my whole face every hour and use 2-3 blotting sheets to combat the oiliness or I look like a complete oil slick. After using them, my face feels very dry and tight and will leave my makeup patchy in some areas but shiny again in about 30 mins. I can't use anything mattifying or oil controlling as they aggravate my skin. I can't use gels as they aren't moisturizing enough and leaves my face tight, warm, red and itchy. Heavy oil based creams are too rich for my skin and clog my pores even more altho they feel great on! I also tried facial oils but they just leave me even more of a greasy mess.   My current skin care routine:   Clinique Take The Day Off Oil (nighttime as makeup remover) Create Hydrating Cleanser (twice a day) Clinique Mild Toner (alcohol free, twice a day) Clinique Turnaround Essence Lotion (twice a day) Mac Moisture Infusion Serum & Clinique Turnaround Serum (daytime) Estee Lauder ANR / Drunk Elephant TLC Glycolic Serum (alternating nights) Clinique Turnaround Overnight Moisturizer (always at night, now also in the morning as it is the only thing I have right now) Clinique Turnaround Facial Oil (only at night, over my moisturizer) Clinique Clay Mask (twice a week) Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask (once or twice a week, in place of my moisturizer)   I have tried many, many products over the last few years and nothing has solved my issues. Price is not an issue as long as it works. Any suggestions or recommendations would be great! Thanks Ladies

Product advice for poor college student
Hi all!    I am looking to switch my skin routine. I have very oily skin that is prone to breakouts, especially in my forehead area. I do not wear makeup daily, so I am not very concerned with products that are great at removing makeup. I have been using proactiv for the past few years, but am no longer satisfied with the results. I am also in college, so I would not like to break the bank and would like to stay in the $20 or below range for each product! Also, I do not have much time in the mornings for getting ready, so I was wondering if you guys had suggestions for what part of the skin care routine is essential for everyday, versus extra things I could do from time to time I'm a newbie when it comes to skin care, so any advice is great, thanks!

My oily skin is not responding to my moisturizers.
Hey Everyone!   Lately my skin has become very oily. To start off, I have oily skin, but it is always under control by using Boscia cleanser and Fresh Seaberry oil. I have been using those products for a year now and haven't had a major breakout since and my skin has been lovely!  Lately my skin hasn't been responding to my moisturizer, and it's such a huge problem that I'm about to switch to an oil free moisturizer. Any suggestions? I'm very strict on my skin and I live a very healthy lifestyle and drink at least a gallon of water a day so I'm really confused why all of a sudden my skin is acting up.    Also, do you think it's because of this crazy weather that my skin is just out of whack? I live in Louisiana and the weather has been 30 degrees with no humidity one day and 85 degrees with 75% humidity the next lol. I just didn't want to blame the weather
