Good products for Oily Skin
 
Ok ladies, I need a product to help combat my oily skin. I am looking for a cleanser and a moisturizer that will help combat shine and oil, and I will try drugstore or department store brands. What is a good one to try? Thank you--I am tired of feeling like there's an oil slick on my face! :oops:

I wish I could help but all I can do is feel your pain.My skin is so unbelievably oily.If I wipe my face with my hand,my hand will be glistening as if I just rubbed butter or something on it. :lol: Blotting papers help for a little while but I have to use then like every 30-45 mins.Ive read that oily skin is less likely to get wrinkles so I guess thats a plus but geez.And mattifying makeup...yea right,thats a joke.
I hope someone posts a good solution.

I wouldn't mind some suggestions either. =)

I've got a shine reducing cream stuff that I apply to the oiliest areas before putting make up on. I put foundation on and a lot of powder, yet within a few hours (and it's very cold at the moment), my skin is greasy again. I tried a moisturiser that's supposed to help with it, but it irritated my skin.

As for the wrinkles...I have very thin skin around my eye area. I can see lines already and wrinkles aren't too far behind. =(

I found that my oil slick decreased when I quit using soaps and strong cleansers and starting using Cetaphil. I still mask once a week, but I guess I quit producing oil overtime when I quit stripping my face twice a day.

Hey ladies.

I've recently been using L'oreal Pure Zone Deep Exfoliating Gel Wash followed by L'Oreal Pure Zone Anti Regreasing Moisturiser and it's working wonders.

The wash has made my skin a lot less oily without over drying it (as a lot of cleansers seem to do) and the moisturiser really does keep any shine at bay for most of the day.

Highly recommended!

Under my eyes I have the same problem...very dry skin with lines,and Im only 23!! I have bad undereye circles so I have to wear concealor but it settles into the lines and looks terrible.Ew! Im 23 not 53(no offense to anyone :) )

Im gonna check out that Loreal Anti Regreasing Moisturizer when I go to the store.Thanks for the info Twirly Girl!

Thats ok, If you can't find it then Lush also do one called Enzymion which is also very good.

The dry skin under your eyes could be attributed to eye make up/remover you use? To cover them though try and find a lighter textured concealer (liquidy is best) with light reflecting pigments.

AfroSheen 02-13-2004 10:46 AM

I wish it were that simple.I dont really wear eye makeup,espcially lately,so its not that.I just naturally have nast dry undereye skin.LoL
I do use a creamy concealor maybe switching to a liquid would be smart.I just always figured a liquid wouldnt cover well,I have no idea why.Thanks!

Afrosheen - I have very dark under eye circles too. I also have very pale skin, so they are very noticeable. Concealing them completely makes my eyes look odd, smaller, and like they are randomly put on my face. It's annoying as my eyes are my best feature. I think the dark circles are hereditary. They vary from day to day in how dark they are, but they are always there.

i use several of the clean & clear products....the foaming wash, benozo wash, blackhead scrub and they work well...i use their oil sheets too...

Twirly Girl, where did you get the Loreal stuff? I looked at my Wal-Mart on Saturday, and they had some Pure Zone porducts, but not those. :evil:

Twirly Girl 02-19-2004 08:09 AM

Hey Poopsie

I live in the UK so maybe the products are called something different in the US? PM me your email address and I'll send you pic's of the products.

Hairproductjunkie 02-19-2004 09:50 AM

Thank you Twirly Girl! I PM'd you!

Twirly Girl 02-20-2004 02:15 AM

Hey Guys

I posted about some L'Oreal products that are good for oily skin. I have discovered that they both have different names and packaging in the US so if you're interested in buying them then look for...

Pure Zone Pore Unclogging Scrub Cleanser and Pure Zone Skin Relief Oil-Free Moisturizer

Hairproductjunkie 02-20-2004 09:51 AM

Thank you Twirly Girl!

I am going to go out and get those ASAP. Thanks for finding out the alternate names for the US curlies--you rock!!

BTW--I think the UK names are much better and more descriptive than the ones for the US. Wonder why they changed them? :?:

I've been using jojoba oil for the past few days and my oily slicks are gone, unless I use to much of it. Supposedly it won't break you out b/c it isn't like your typical oil, but I'll let you know if it does.

n_y_chic 02-25-2004 07:31 AM

That jojoba oil sounds great! I just did a search on the web and have read nothing but good things. Thanks for the suggestion because I probably would've never come across that info otherwise.

Also, I've been doing the aspirin facial for 2 weeks and the results are amazing! I highly recommend it.

I try to keep my regimen as "natural" (read "cheap") as possible. I use the aspirin facial to cleanse/exfoliate, followed by hydrogen peroxide as toner. I'll start using jojoba to moisturize with sunscreen over that.

hnyhps 03-03-2004 05:38 PM

I got a few small breakouts on the side of my face. still nothing like I used to get. I can't say it was the jojoba oil b/c I've been drinking less water and used a scrub two days before teh break out. They are gone now and didn't realy live a mark.
