Cleansers for oily skin

I have extremely oily skin and need a cleanser that will fully clean my face while keeping my oil at bay. 


*i also heard some where that people with oily skin should look for certain “acids” I products. Does anyone know what those might be 



Re: Cleansers for oily skin

Hi @colemeissen,


I  suggest the Kate Somerville ExfoliKate™ Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash with AHA & Enzymes 4 oz/ 118 mL. It does not strip the skin or leave your skin dried out and tight. It clears the skin and keeps it nice and soft. 


I also love the BOSCIA - Detoxifying Black Charcoal Cleanser. This cleanser also helps keep your skin clear and keeps the skin balanced. 


I hope this helps! 


Best Wishes,

@colemeissen  My regular cleanser recommendations are Philosophy Purity and First Aid Beauty Facial Cleanser. Both are gentle and effective at cleansing. 


There a wide variety of "acids" that are used in skincare, for a variety of reasons, so it's hard to say what specifically you've heard. Do you have a current routine that you're looking to build on? Proper hydration can help with combatting oil, along with skincare products including exfoliating products (sometimes acids) and clay masks.
