I am 30-ish with extremely oily skin! Especially in my t-zone. I get high build-up in my cheeks, nose and chin area causing very large red bumps. I have never really built a skin care routine so I think it's time for me to do something as my skin is now aging badly. I wear make-up often and I usually use a moisturizer under my foundation. PLEASE HELP!!!!! I'm not very suave when it comes to skin care.
I'm looking for an uncolored foundation primer. I'm currently using Bare Minerals' "Prime Time." It's not working well for my oily skin - the oil still comes through within a few hours, and it feels greasy on when I apply it. I'm looking for a primer that will minimize oil, feels light to wear, and works well as its own base/lotion. I'd use it on my full face, so if it's got SPF in it, that would be great. I'll be putting Bare Minerals' "Correcting Concealer" on top (for specific scars, not on my full face) and then the Bare Minerals' "All Over" face powder. I do NOT use liquid foundation. Please let me know if some brands come to mind! If the concealer and powder aren't good for oily skin, either, I'm open to other possibilities. I've tried quite a few brands already and these feel the lightest-weight and effective so far. Thanks!
Hi all! I'm looking to update my skincare regimen.. i have a few samples of the Ren renewal mask that I was going to try as an exfoliator, but I do need some advice as to which cleansers are best for my skin. I tend to be very oily - t zone to be specific. Also noticing my pores are pretty large. Since we're starting to turn a corner and head into summer, I'd love some recommendations.. Should I be cleansing, toning, exfoliating, moisturizing, etc? Currently I use the La Roche Posay cleansing gel and a Clean & Clear scrub (about 3x a week). I loved the Dr. Brandt Pores No More Mattifying Moisturizer, but I'm wondering if I'm somehow getting a bit oilier as days go by from using it. Any tips/recommendations from the experts and fellows beauty lovers are more than welcome. Thank you!!
I can't find anything for my skin that works! I use Finacea Gel for my Rosacea as prescribed by my dermatologist. My face is a mess though! Red, oily, sensitive and full of aggressive acne bumps. I've tried everything and I'm beyond caring whether my routine is anti-aging or not. I just want my face back! My scalp already itches from Seborrheic Dermatitis and I have tiny bits of Psoriasis on my fingers and toes. Help me anyone! I'm willing to dip my face in acid at this point!
Hello lovely ladies! So, my skin is so oily it could be used to fry bacon, and as much as love my darling NARS Sheer Glow in Tahoe (you + me forever baby!), I wanted to try a foundation that's more suitable for my skin and that I don't have to baby in order for it to last. Thank you so much for your help!
Hey guys im looking for a good lotion for oily skin. Im currently using Kate Sommerville Goat Milk Cream and it was great for fall/winter but im pretty sure it wont work for summer. I wore it on a few hot days and was greasy and i think it broke me out. Any suggestions?
I have heard great things about the Dior Skin Nude but I am not sure what shade I am. I wear the shade Desert Beige in Estee Lauder's Double Wear foundation and am in-between NW20 and NW25 in MAC. Any suggestions??
So I had been using Clinique's 3 Step System for a few months... At first I loved it and after a month or 2 my skin went back to its oily self. I recently got a sample of Soap & Glory's Daily Detox Vitamin C Cleanser and LOVE it!!!!!! I went on sephora tonight to purchase the full size and I guess Sephora no longer carries it!?!? Does anyone else know of where I could purchase one/a good cleanser that is similar? Thanks!
Hey lovelys, so just a little background on my skin. I have had extremely oily skin since I can remember (I'm 22 now) and large pores that no matter what I do become clogged as the day goes on whether or not I wear makeup. My face starts out looking fine and not long after it looks rough, oily and clogged. I have tried a plethora of skincare and makeup options. With the summer approaching I'm getting self conscious about my skin and would like to improve it so that I am not a sweaty, oily mess. Any good recommendations on what I could do? Thank you all in advance and have a lovely day!
I had previously used a gentle cleanser like Purity Made Simple from Philosophy and On a Clear Day to deal with my skin. I wanted more help with my cystic acne, oily skin and being 41, wanted to address anti-aging. Anything used for the acne dries me out or makes my face almost sore, and anything used for anti-aging adds to my oily skin issues. I decided to try the Resist Advance Kit for Breakouts and Wrinkles from Paula's Choice and have a love/hate relationship with it. The appearance and texture of my skin has improved greatly. The cystic acne is much better. But the one thing I cannot handle is the extra oily skin that has come on. By afternoon my make up is gone. Even though oily skin is an issue for me, I do not have such an issue with it that my make up melts away, especially this bad. I have more issues with clogged pores and blackheads now too, but the cystic acne is smaller, less red and inflamed, heals quicker and the flaky, scaly skin surrounding them is no more. I have tried skipping the daytime moisturizer. Tried limiting the 2% BHA Daily Pore Refining Treatment to once a day rather than twice thinking I was over exfoliating causing extra oil production. Nothing has helped. Is there a skin care regime that someone can point me to?
Anyone have good results with this? I'm looking for something to help with my oily T-zone. I'll be hitting up Nordstrom tomorrow after the Rouge event and might pick this up. Anyone have good/bad reviews of it?
Hi all. I am getting married in September and starting to prep my skin for looking its best. I am 29 and still would classify my skin as oily... I get occasional pimples around my nose and have black heads on my nose and chin. I don't use any make up on my skin... ever really. I exfoliate and use oil free face wash in the shower. What can I start doing now to help with pores, acne, and prepping for make up? Thanks!
Hi. my face has been giving me major problems lately with excessive oil and zips. I have just started shopping at Sephora so I need some advice. I am also a college student so Im on a budget. I am looking for a face wash that works. any suggestions?
My skin always gets very oily in the afternoon. I use a cleanser and oil free moisturizer every morning. I have been thinking about getting Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. D oes it work? Does it clog your pores and make your skin more susceptible to breakouts? Or is there a better alternative? Thanks!
It's a very niche question (Oily/combo people, who've tried proactiv, who also received that same sample, liked it, managed to escape ProActiv, missed the oil control thing, and managed to find a dupe probably isn't very many people), but maybe someone will have something, or at least an idea to try? I tried the Murad Oil control, but it only does about 1/4 of the oil control the proactiv one does. I could probably just get it on eBay, but if I can avoid it I'd prefer to. I don't like the idea of, in some roundabout way, supporting a company that literally forces you to continue paying for their products. (I took them off of my paypal list, since the first person I talked to refused to cancel my account, so they sent the next box with a bill. Either I had to pay for the products or pay for return shipping.)
I've been using Tarte's BB Cream for a while and loved it but wanted more coverage, I got talked into the new Bare Minerals Serum Foundation which I now layer on top! I like it but by the end of the day my face is an oil slick! Any advice on good BB cremes and/or foundations to combat oily skin? Preferably something oil free and all natural
Does anyone know of a titanium free foundation. After trying many, many foundations I have figured out that it is the titanium in foundation that causes some of the ashy/unflattering grey glaze that some women of color experience when wearing foundation. It totally kills the vibrant golden/yellow tones in my skin. My true foundation match does not exist (somewhere between mac nc45 and nc50..or possibly nw). I usually have to choose between one shade that is too dark and the next on up which is often 10-20 shades lighter with an overpowering amount of titanium that makes it hard to even blend 2 shades without looking dead and muddy. I also have oily skin that hates most silicone based foundation (makeup forever hd, etc.). They somehow un-blend from my skin and swim on the surface after 2-4 hrs. If I rely on blot papers I will use the entire pack in one day. I have tried the color matching at Sephora which was not helpful. Any help is appreciated,
Ok ladies and gents, if you have oily skin with acne you understand finding a good skin care routine is necessary . I'm trying to make my routine better by using products on my skin that are a little more friendly, aka paraben and phthalate free. So far this is my routine... I need help fixing it so that my skin feels more clean, clear, and refreshed. If possible I do prefer recommendations from some of the lines I'm currently using but I'm also open to suggestions. Morning: Cleanser - Origins Checks & Balances & Glamglow Supercleanse Toner - Origins United State Moisturizer - Origins Ginzing Spot Treatment - Super Spot Remover Serum - Korres Pomegranate Mattifying Treatment Night: Makeup Remover - Baby Wipes Cleanser - Origins Checks & Balances & Glamglow Supercleanse Toner - Origins United State Moisturizer /Serum - Ole Henriksen Invigorating Night Treatment Masks: Glamglow Supermud & Powermud Peels: Peter Thomas Roth Peeling Gel Exfoliant: Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant
I was looking to try out a new foundation. Right now I am using the MAC Pro Longwear compact. After a few hours, my face gets oily again and all of my foundation is gone. I do set it with the Studio Fix powder, but it just helps for maybe an hour if I reapply. Anyone has issues with super oily skin and found a foundation that lasts all day? with pretty good coverage.
Hi fellow beauty lovers! So I have been suffering from oily skin for quite awhile now... Back in October I switched my skincare regimen to Clinique's 3 Step system for oily skin and that seemed to help a lot. I'm not sure if my skin has just gotten used to it or what but recently my skin has been sooo oily! I usually use Estee Lauder Double Wear or Lancomes Teint Idole for foundation, always set my foundation with Laura Mercier's Pressed Powder, and usually use either Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer or I have been recently liking MUFE's new mattifying primer! Do any of you guys recommend any other products for oily skin!? I am always looking for new skincare items to try and primers/setting powders. For some reason I have not been the biggest fan lately of Hourglass's Mineral Veil Primer
Hi everyone, I have the HARDEST time finding a great moisturizer for my skin. I would say my skin is oily due to the amount of moisture my skin gives after applying my moisturizer. This is my routine. -Cleanse with Aveeno brightening daily cleanser (actually the best and works wonderful) -Masks: I have used Glamglow Thirsty Mud works great, Boscia black peel-off mask works great, Peter Thomas Roth cucumber mask wonderful! I have no problems with these masks. -Moisturizer: I have used Oil Free Sheer Transformation Moisturizer by Ole Henricksen and changed (just two weeks ago) to Origins Anti-Aging oil-free moisturizer. The origins worked for the first 4 days and now I am getting back the same effect of oily skin just when I applied the Sheer Transformation. What have you guys tried that works? and please do correct me if I am wrong in any of my routines I am open to suggestions. Maaaaaaaany thanks!
I currently use philosophy purity to remove all of my face makeup. I like it because if I use makeup remover wipes it will irritate my face. I normally get oily on my t-zone and I'm acne prone. So does anyone have any recommendations on face makeup removers? I just want to try something different. I also have acne scars, does anyone have any recommendations on any products that will help with that? Any skin care products from cleansers (currently use nude), moisturizers (currently using Clinique), toners, exfoliator, masks. Anything will help thanks 😊
I like full coverage look. I wear Laura Mercier Silk Cream foundation and love it. I use lorac primer and powder...BUT I have such an oily face that makeup melts off my nose especially. Do you have any ideas how to keep my red nose covered?
Im not a huge make up girl so I dont know most of the tricks or what exactly I should be doing, but I feel as though anything I have tried, doesnt work. My forehead and nose is what gets the most oily, then the rest of my face gets dried out. Im also acne prone. I used Covergirl for most of my life, then just this summer switched to MUFE HD and I love the coverage it gives me and how little of it I need. I ordered the MUFE matte foundation last week and just got it the other day. Tried it once, and it instantly dried my whole face out way too much. I've tried using Vichy mattifying gel under my MUFE HD and it may have given me an extra hour before things got oily. Before I ordered more MUFE HD, I thought I'd see what you guys have to say. Any suggestions for me?
