10 Beauty Products Every Woman With Oily Skin Should Use
#1 Biotherm Aquasource Everplump, $69
This lightweight gel moisturiser hydrates without making oily skin feel sticky or heavy. Hyaluronic acid plumps skin from within and gives up to 72 hours of hydration.
#2 Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion
Sometimes, the reason why skin is oily is due to the fact that it isn’t hydrated enough, causing skin to produce more sebum in a bid to retain moisture. The Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion contains hyaluronic acid in varying molecule sizes that penetrates different layers of skin to deliver moisture where it’s needed.
#3 Shiseido IBUKI Smart Filtering Smoother, $48
Containing absolutely no silicon (we checked), this amazing mattifying fluid can be used under or over makeup. Just dab the product over areas of the skin that are shiny and it instantly wicks away sebum for matte, smooth skin.
#4 Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask, $95
There’s a certain satisfaction involved in watching clay masks dry – especially when you can see oil spots after it dries up. The Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask provides that sort of contentment; soaking up excess sebum while gently exfoliating away surface skin to reveal smoother skin.
#5 innisfree Super Volcanic Clay Mousse Mask, $29
Containing Jeju volcanic scoria, which is formed when volcanic lava cools after an eruption, the innisfree Super Volcanic Clay Mousse Mask has a unique ability to absorb sebum, as well as clear pores of impurities without drying skin out.
#6 Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Le Cushion Encre de Peau, $88
While most Korean BB cushions emphasize on a dewy finish, the Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Le Cushion Encre de Peau leaves a wonderful semi-matte finish that looks like real skin; as opposed to looking heavy and caked on like some mattifying foundations do.
Even if you have mattifying primer and foundation on, it’s inevitable for skin to look shiny after a couple of hours. Give it an extra dose of oil-control with the Urban Decay De-Slick Oil-Control Makeup Setting Spray. It keeps sebum at bay and helps makeup last longer.
#8 Cover FX Mattifying Primer With Anti-Acne Treatment, $62
Makeup with skincare properties? Sign us up please. The Cover FX Mattifying Primer With Anti-Acne Treatment contains 1% salicylic acid to gently exfoliate surface dead skin cells and prevent them from clogging pores. Plus, mattifying properties extend the wear of your foundation.
#9 Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder, $62
Not all loose powders are made equal, but you’re in safe hands with the Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder because it’s formulated for the unforgiving HD cameras. Lightly dust this over foundation to set your makeup and prevent it from sliding off.
#10 Beautyblender Blotterazzi, $34
If you need to touch up your makeup on oily parts of the face, it’s necessary to dab off the excess sebum first before applying powder or you might end up with a goopy mess and a soiled sponge. The Beautyblender Blotterazzi is able to absorb sebum off from the skin – even tricky areas like the side of the nose – without ruining your foundation.
