Hey guys, what are some really good, moisturising and affordable moisturiser for a super oily skin?
My tip is to try to look for water based moisturisers instead of oil-based, then it's predominantly personal preference from there on.
I personally love the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel for an affordable option, it's extremely hydrating and sinks in nicely. Sukin and Avalon Organics also do nice affordable moisturisers too!
thank you so much for the recommendation! xx
I have read reviews or blogs saying that in order to counter the oiliness on our face, we should go for oil-based products so that it will "cancel" out the oiliness.
I have tried on products that it meant for oily skin, but those products made my skin even oilier and also I have breakouts easily.
oh no thats not good!
I had a lot of trouble with the neutrogena water gel, it triggered eczema on my face . I've been using the Weleda skin food overnight and it's been amazing. It's thick and almost greasy but considering I have very oily, acne prone skin this moisturiser has been just what I need. I also use it as a primer to give me a nice natural glow under foundation. It's been my life saver, it also cleared up the patch of eczema of my face within a week.
I’m with you on the neutrogena setting off my eczema, all neutrogena products irritate me.
Yep. I had the wash and the gel moisturiser and it really messed up my skin from just a few days use. I find it's heavily purfumed and has a lot of unnecessary harsh ingredients. I don't usually have eczema but I acquired a giant patch on my cheek from it. In the bin it went.
Personally i have never tried any neutrogena products, I have always tried a more natural moisturiser
thanks everyone for the comments! xx
I use the real-u 3 step program. The control serum is pretty pricey but you can get the cleanser and moisturiser duo for about $35-$40, but there is also a $6 shipping fee because you can only buy it online (so maybe not as inexpensive as others out there, sorry). I've got really oily skin and I don't seem to be having any problems with this one. And this products are specifically designed for problematic skin which is always an issue when you do have oily skin.
i’v never heard of that brand before but i’ll look into it more!!
Thanks Amelia Hughes I may look into that myself! I have the same problem as janaekeesha and so hard to find the right things that don't make your face oilier!
oily skin problems hahaha!
Moisturisers comes in three types (not that the products tell you which ones they are), they come as occlusives (thick, oily balm), emollients (creamy) and humectants (light lotion) depending on the ingredient lists for someone with oily skin will benefit both emollients and humectants as it provides hydration to the skin and protective skin barrier so mositure is not lost in the external environment (e.g. wind, weather). Examples include Neutrogena hydroboost moisturiser, Cosrx aloe vera or snail cream (can be purchased on iHerb and nudieglow.com.au) and La Roche Posay acne range.
I know you have mention natural moisturiser as your preference to use, they tend to use coconut oil or heavy oils that can clog porse, also essential oils are used such as lavender, lemon, spearmint, eucalyptus etc which in some ways can benefit the skin but can also cause irritation (studies have shown to cause contact dermatitis), like many things natural or 'chemical' can be bad for you in large doses.
Trilogy, A'kin and The Jojoba Company have good mositurisers that can be used for oily skin, just watch out for the ones for dry skin as they can be quite occlusive. Goodluck!
thank you so much for the information and recommendations! that really helped me x
I have really oily skin too and the best moisturiser I have found yet is the Natio Clear Oil Free Daily Moisturiser! It's creamy like a regular moisturiser and I find it really helps limit oil throughout the day.
might give that a go! thanks for the recommendation! x
I was on the look out the find some nails I had been using acrylics for so long and I was over the time it took .
Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque is a good working facial mask. It contains cranberry and turmeric which is great for the skin.
Simple Reviving Under-Eye Hydrogel Mask is a really good product. It applies under the eyes and offers hydration for the eyes. It contains minerals and plant extracts that are good for the skin.
