Post in Oily Skin

Oily skin - need a good moisturizer

I have very oily skin and am looking for a good moisturizer. I want something that is not greasy and does not make my skin oily. Something that my skin can absorb and not just sit on the surface. My skin also tends to flake which makes everything even worse and I have mild acne. I have tried Philosophy, Clinique, Murad, Proactiv, etc. Please help!

Korres Yoghurt cream is spectacular for oily and combination skin.  It's one of my all time favorites and never made my breakouts worse or caused new ones.

Juice Beauty has an oil-free moisturizer that I also liked when I using their acne line.

I think the Korres Yogurt cream would be great for light weight hydration without oil.

Try using an exfoliator, to remove flakiness and keep skin smooth.

Im a big fan of facial mists. They are great to use after cleansing or though out the day for a quick boost or moisture and freshness.

I should have read this before I posted my question lol!! @ Kalex--are any of these two you suggested safe to use in combination with retin-a?

Re: Korres Yoghurt cream is spectacular for oily and combinat...

I don't foresee a problem with either one of them if you're using retin-a. They are both quite gentle - neither one contains acids (salicylic or glycolic) or additional retinols that would irritate your skin.

Sephora no longer has the Korres Yoghurt cream! Smiley Sad Any thoughts on the Pomegranate Balancing Cream-Gel Moisturiser?

I have very oily skin that also gets pretty dry (either from harsh cleansers, or the weather), and I've found that Argan oil works quite nicely for me. I usually just use it at night, but if areas of my skin seem especially dry in the morning before I put my makeup on, I'll put just a little in those areas. One or two drops covers my whole face. I haven't noticed my skin breaking out any worse than usual since I started using it, and as long as I don't put too much on, it soaks into the skin nicely. Josie Maran Argan Oil For what it's worth, argan oil was also the only thing that worked on my lips when they cracked really badly when it started getting cold this fall.

Kinerase "Lotion" is a great lightweight moisturizer that is hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, fragrance-free and is ideal for normal-to-oily skin (and it's non-irritating for even the most sensitive skin like mine).  You can find out more info on this moisturizer on Sephora's website:  http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P100110&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=5794.

I hope this helps you.  Smiley Happy

I have super oily skin and I totally understand what you mean ! My husband would even tease me that I could use my oily skin to make fuels , lol. I am tired of trying so many products and finally set down with Caudalie vinopure matte. It's awesome and helped me a lot. I can think of any other moisturizer for my skin.
