Re: Cleanser for oily skin?

Hi @adrianar1995,

I recommend looking for a cleanser that will balance the oil on your skin, but not make your skin feel dry or tight afterwards. I recommend the Origins Checks and Balances™ Frothy Face Wash 5 oz/ 150 mL.

RE: Re: Cleanser for oily skin?

Hi! I work for Sephora and I am a cleanser fan (have tried so many!)... I like to have a couple of cleansers on hand, as skin gets oilier or drier due to weather, hormones, season, etc... For oil-reducing cleansers, boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel cleanses well and leaves skin feeling clean. PHILOSOPHY - Purity Made Simple Cleanser is excellent at removing makeup. OLEHENRIKSEN Find Your Balance™ Oil Control Cleanser 5 oz/ 147 mL is another good option with great reviews. It’s equally important to have a more neutral cleanser, as oily skin cleansers can be hard to use twice a day, every day, without overdrying (cold or dry weather can also cause a need to switch) ... if/when your skin feels dry or tight, alternate to the gentler wash for a few days, until it gets better. SEPHORA COLLECTION - Clean Skin Gel - Cleanse + Tone, FRESH - Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash, and KORRES Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser 5.07 oz/ 150 mL are all really gentle but will definitely get your skin nice and clean. Hope this is helpful!

My partner has only skin and likes the OLEHENRIKSEN Find Your Balance™ Oil Control Cleanser 5 oz/ 147 mL. Good luck, @adrianar1995!
