Post in Oily Skin

Can anyone recommend a good moisturizer?

Hello! In the past year or two, I've started to get a lot of acne on my face. I tried out many products but have been struggling with moisturizers. I can't seem to find the right one for my oily skin which is really oily in the summer but is dry in the winter. The only problem is, especially in the winter, as soon as I apply a moisturizer, my skin somehow automatically and immediately gets oily. Can someone please recommend a moisturizer that has worked for you if you have oily skin or just any good moisturizer? Thank you so much!

Hi @Rose268!


Are you using any other products besides moisturizer?


Oily skin is skin that's dehydrated so maybe that's why your dry face gets oily in the winter.  Don't forget to stay hydrated as well.  A lightweight, hydrating moisturizer might be a good choice especially for oily skin.


I use toner, treatment for acne, serum, moisturizer, and sunscreen during the day.  The combination of all these products help control oils and acne for me.

My favorite moisturizer is Youth To The People Superfood Air-Whip Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid 2 oz/ 60 mL.  It's lightweight so it's great for oily skin.  It also has hyaluronic acid which helps with hydration.


For acne, I use Sunday Riley U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil 1.18 oz/ 35 mL on most nights, but when I break out, I switch it for a prescribed retinol cream as spot treatment.  I also mix a drop of UFO into my foundation to help give it acne fighting power.

@RAWRitsRED Thank you so much! Also, I started a new routine lately by using the CeraVe foaming cleanser, rose water, and the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% serum.
