  1. you can try rubbing pieces of tomatoes on ur face, you know really get the tomato juice on your skin then rinse after 30 mins. that helps get rid of oily skin. 🙂

  2. Love your videos this was really helpful I’m definitely getting some some blotting papers as I have oily skin! Xxx

  3. I’ve always suffered from oily skin and adult acne. About a year ago, I decided to change everything about the way I care for my skin. I ditched every single product that was targeted towards oily and acne-prone skin. No more SLS, no more foaming cleansers, no more stripping soaps. My rubbish was overflowing and I almost cried at the value that went into the bin. (or given away to willing recipients). Now however, I think that was the best decision I ever made when it came to skincare.

    I then started with a very basic cleanser. I use Lush’s Ultrabland. I have used this for 9 months now, and I feel that it has changed my skin completely. I am no longer super oily, I just get an oily t-zone and cheeks on a hot day. You can use Ultrabland to remove your makeup, but I find it a bit claggy on the skin when used twice. Instead, I use Caudalie oil cleanser. It’s a basic almond oil-based cleanser that rinses clean. There are other oil cleansers that perform just as well, but I just keep going back to that one. I like it, it likes me, etc.

    I also use chemical exfoliants on a daily basis, both morning and night. I use a gentle one in the AM (Pixi Glow tonic or Nip + fab gentle pads) and a more intensive one in the PM (Nip + Fab intensive or Alpha-H Liquid gold). With the exception of the Alpha-H, I always follow these acids with La Roche Posay Serozinc.

    The last thing I did was go for more hydrating serums and moisturises, rather than those for oily skin. I love Bioderma Hydrating Serum and all of the Caudalie serums. I am pretty loyal to these brands, but I mix between them quite a lot, depending on what is running low. It just depends on how my skin is feeling at that moment, as some are more light weighted than others.

    At night, I top those serums off with the Caudalie Overnight oil (red one). I even sometimes add the Superfacialist Vitamin C night cream between my serum and oil. This gives my skin such a good drink. In the day, I pretty much religiously use Caudalie Vinoperfect Day cream with SPF20. That is unless I know for sure that I am not going out anywhere for the day. In those rare occasions, I slather on SkinOwl’s Lavender beauty drops. It’s a light-weight oil that is composed of mainly organic lavender and argon oils. It smells delicious and even though it’s an oil, it leaves my skin comfortable and doesn’t feel oily at the same time.

    If I’m doing something during the day where I want to feel a bit more glowy, I’ll use the Superfacialist Vitamin C primer. It has a nice bit of glow, a great scent, but I find that it can by drying if used daily.

    To perk my skin up, and give it a treat, I love the Peter Thomas Roth pumpkin mask. It smells like food, but it works. I can leave it on for 5 minutes and then do my usual AM or PM routine on top of it without any problems.

    This change was a lot of work, but I’ve seen such a positive change in my skin, that I feel it is totally worth it. If I was forced to stick to a single brand for the rest of my life, it would definitely be Caudalie. It’s a mid-priced range and its products are very effective.

    Wow, that was a ramble, but a lot of work went into this, and I thought it might be beneficial for others to hear of my journey, and how I came to the conclusion that any product directed to oily skin is something that I wanted to avoid.

    Oh, and blotting papers are definitely a good investment! We’ve just recently got a shop that stocks Essence in my town, so I’ll be checking out the ones you recommend for sure.

  4. I find that using a toner really helps with my oily-ness. I have the simple one and it’s to gentle- I would totally recommend it for anyone who has acne/problematic skin as well as oily-ness as I find it doesn’t make it worse xx
