i'm looking for a skin care brand that uses natural ingredients or at least uses less chemicals than most normal skin care products and that is also good for people with really oily skin?

Well I'm not sure how natural it is but I'm madly in love with The Body Shop's Tea Tree line. It works wonders on my oily skin & feels great. I bought the box kit which includes cleanser, toner, lotion, oil and a sample masque.


I'm so pissed that I left the cleanser on the sink in a hotel last weekend!

I remember my sister liking The Body Shop Seaweed Toner. Now, she's using products from Yves Rocher Hydra Vegetal line (cleanser, serum and gel cream) and she claimed she's been getting compliments and envious remarks from her friends.

Zria. Her products are on Etsy.

I have oily skin with some sensitive areas. Her products never irritate my face and I've tried a lot items out there.

Her line is Ayurvedic too which I love.

There are many good brand for oily skin. Like as..
1. Murad Acne Clarifying Cleanser
2 . Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion
3 . First Aid Beauty Daily Face Cream
I wouldn't consider it natural (natural doesn't mean all that much anyway- after all, arsenic is natural, but that doesn't mean it's good for me) Paula's Choice products are amazing. My skin is oily and randomly sensitive and these products have been amazing. Everything is well researched, there's no fragrance or harsh skin irritants, and the prices are extremely reasonable. After only a couple week I started getting tons of compliments on my skin.

I still use some "natural" products but I don't limit myself to them.

Not saying they're bad, but my skin is the happiest with simple products and routine.

I use the same oil blend I use for my hair to cleanse my face at night, also mixing it into my body lotion in the winter which I smear whatever left on my hands to my face.
If I needed extra cleansing, it's either my gentle feminine hygiene wash or micellar water.
At night I rotate Retin-A .25 and Skinoren 20%.
I also keep around BP 2.5% for zits and Vaseline for extra moisture (also works amazing as highlighter in the winter).

Having that said, Silk Naturals have really great skincare line for reasonable price, as well as Skin Actives and NuFountain (serums). I've been particularly eyeing ASDM Beverly Hills and Lucy Minerals for their vitC/aox serums.

My skin really likes the Yes To! products, although they seem to have mixed reviews online. Back when my skin was oilier I used the Yes to Tomatoes line. Now my skin is drier so I use the carrots line and Lush products.

Tomatoes are great for oily skin due to their cooling, clarifying and astringent properties. The high vitamin C content in tomatoes is very helpful for acne-prone skin. Plus, the natural oil-absorbing acids in tomatoes help get rid of excess oil. Cut a tomato in half and rub it on your skin. Allow the juice to soak into your skin for at least 15 minutes. Rinse your skin with cold water, pat it dry and apply a light oil-free moisturizer.

I have oily, randomly sensitive skin and cystic acne. I use Duac, which controls the acne without irritating my skin, but doesn't do anything for the general oiliness of it all.

I honestly love Trader Joe's skincare products. LOVE. I like the tea tree oil face wash, but my husband found it drying, so I switched to the other one they sell and really liked that, too. I use the facial moisturizer with spf 15 in the summer (I use goop facial moisturizer spf 50 if I'm going to be outside for more than a few minutes, mostly on the weekends), and use the oil free moisturizer in the winter.

I adore the head to toe balm for my feet, elbows and cuticles (and I use it on my dog's dry nose) and the fragrance free body lotion with aloe. Their sunscreens are great, too, at a much lower price than most you'll find. The french milled soaps are great, and I can tolerate their essential oil-based fragrances. (Artificial fragrances can give me a rash, though not all of them.)

As of the last month or so, I've been using the oil cleansing method and it blows everything I've ever purchased out of the water! 2 parts jojoba oil, 1 part extra virgin olive oil, 1 part jamaican black castor oil (this is the more astringent oil, can be adjusted less or more depending on how oily you are), massage over the face then wet down a wash cloth with hot water and hold it there so it steams and opens the pores..the oil carries out all the gunk. My skin has never been better. It also takes off all my makeup without any effort. I follow up with a mixture of jojoba/lavender/rosehip oil as a moisturizer. I know it seems counterintuitive as someone with oily skin to use oils, however these have given the best results for me. Actually my skin feels more balanced now. Less oily through the t-zone but still soft and dewy.

As for me I had oily skin and used Vichy cream which helps to take away sebum. As far as I remember it is called night detox. But I doubt that it is really natural. That's why I try to use natural homemade remedies. For example, when I have free time I like preparing tasty recipes for my skin applying different facial masks from strawberry and honey or the yogurt recipe. Yogurt contains lactic acid which is helpful for gentle exfoliation of the skin and it also absorbs excess oil from your face.

The recipe is here: Apply 1 tablespoon of plain yogurt over your face and leave it on for 15 min. Then rinse it off with cool water. Do this once daily.
Or there is another variant: you can mix one tablespoon each of organic yogurt and finely ground oatmeal. Then stir in one teaspoon of warm honey. Apply the mix on your face leaving it on your face for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse with warm water.
I recommend Shea Terra Organics.They also have face masks geared towards oily,acne prone skin.
Most of the women are facing oily skin problem and that is very easily prone to acne. All you need to do is healthy lifestyle and use the right skin care products. Make sure that you are tackling the problem from inside and outside too. Try using an oil free moisturizer as every skin does not need oil. Avoid skin care products that contain mineral oil and Paraben. Use this link to get more details of paraben free skin care products which will help to nourish and keep oil free.
