Does “oily skin” need moisturizer? Myth busted.

Does “oily skin” need moisturizer? Myth busted.

A common question I get at work is “Do I still need a moisturizer if I have oily skin?”. I’m not sure when or where this myth started but a lot of people I’ve encountered have been told in the past that if you have oily skin adding a moisturizer on top is going to make your oils worse. This couldn’t be farther from the truth! Every skin type can benefit for a moisturizer, you know have to find the right one. When you cleanse your skin you have potential to strip it if it’s natural oils. In order to keep balance you have to supplement it with hydrating ingredients. I know the go to thought process with oily skin would be to take away those oils (maybe with stripping ingredients like alcohol filled toners) but if you pair it with the right moisturizer you’ll actually feel more balanced. I learned in esthetics school about the three basic types of moisturizers. You have humectants (which attract water), emollients (which smoothes the skin by filling in dry patches), and occulsives (which form a protective layer). With oily skin you’ll want to focus on humectants because you need less “oily” ingredients and more “watery” ones. These will be mainly found in gel formulas. They will be lightweight enough on the skin to where you don’t feel heavy and gross but give you the hydration your skin craves. Some of my favorites are the GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask
, Farmacy Daily Greens, and the Clinique ID series with the clear gel base. In the long run using gel moisturizers will actually help contribute to balancing your oil production and your skin will thank you in the long run. 🖤

Juicy skin, here I come 🍉

🍉 The watermelon sleeping mask by Glow Recipe was my first sleeping mask I’ve ever tried. It’s my favorite thing ever! It’s formulated with Watermelon Extract, hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, and pore refining AHAs. It’s the key to glazed donut skin 🍩 You can use it as a mask and wash it off or use it as a “moisturizer” overnight. It smells heavenly! I really recommend this to everyone who needs an extra kick of moisture and wants to look juicy 👀💓 GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask

The Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask is an overall delicious mask. Its purpose is to smooth and make the skin radiant, while gently exfoliating to refine the look of pores. Watermelon is anti inflammatory properties and can be great for soothing irritation. This mask is somewhat hydrating, but I didn’t feel like my skin had a great glow nor did my pores look very improved. I’ve just used overnight masks that worked better for me. The smell is absolutely mouth watering, and the texture is a gel that’s actually kind of sticky after it sits for a bit. I gave this 3/5 stars because it just doesn’t wow me. It is an affordable product $45 for 8 oz, but I don’t see myself repurchasing.

I’d rather get coal than... this cleanser

This cleanser is designed to moisturize sensitive skin while also washing away dirt, oil and makeup without causing irritation. I did not like this product. First, I cannot stand the smell of it. It is kind of a sickly artificial smell. The consistency of this product is extremely thick, so much that I found it difficult to apply on my face and even more difficult to wash off. It always left my skin feeling extremely tight and uncomfortable. I have used many other face washes not even designed for sensitive skin that did not irritate my skin nearly as much as this cleanser did. I would not recommend this product.

I love overnight masks and this one I swap out frequently! I like to use overnight makes twice a week, in between my night cream. I also love that this product doesn’t need to be used as an overnight mask but can be used as a regular 10 minute mask in the morning for a quick boost of hydration! But at night when I use this, the next morning my face looks and feels so plump and hydrated! Not only is this mask meant to hydrate the Akon but it also contains hyaluronic acid, and AHAs that gently exfoliate the skin and help to refine the look of pores! I think this product is reasonably priced, especially compared to most other overnight masks. I’ve been using this for a few months now and still have a good amount left! This will last you a long time. With it being a gel light texture, a little goes a long way so with most overnight masks you want to apply a thick layer, with this mask the texture is already thick so you don’t need to use a lot of product! If you’re looking for a good overnight mask that’s effective, I highly recommend this one. I have been recommending it to almost all of my friends! I love the way my skin looks in the morning, it’s bouncy and looks and feels hydrated. And I love the smell! Watermelon?! Who can’t love that. Especially now when we’re living in a snow globe dreaming about summer! GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon + AHA Glow Sleeping Mask

I tried the Glow Recipe Waterm
I tried the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask for the first time tonight. I know I’m far behind everyone else on this train but I honestly don’t prefer sheet masks & the reviews on Sephora were very average so I wasn’t willing to shell out $8 for one use. So the only reason I gave it a go is because it came with a gift set I purchased at Sephora. 🍉 Also, did anyone else have a hard time putting this on? Lol. I spent like 10 minus total trying to expertly unfold the two clear pieces without tearing them and evenly smooth them on my face (ended up tearing it twice anyways). It is really thin, fragile and quite difficult to put on. After the incredible hassle of trying to get it on, it feels very cooling and hydrating as the packaging claims and was quite a nice experience. I definitely felt hydrated afterwards and the smell was nice. Overall, I would say save yourself the frustration of application and the $8 for one use nonsense and go buy glow recipe’s watermelon glow sleeping mask instead!

GLAMGLOW - THIRSTYMUD Hydrating Treatment Mask PRODUCT A clay based hydrating mask that is meant to provide an intense boost of hydration. This is obviously targeted towards people with dry skin, but I have combination skin, so I bought it to test it out on my drier areas. The texture is a creamy clay paste that holds its shape quite well (see second image). OPINION This is yet another mask that I first tried out years ago because Jaclyn Hill recommended it. I’ve been using it for a while and it is really hydrating and leaves the skin so soft and plump. It has a slight cooling effect – that is to say it probably has the addition of some mint or eucalyptus. I have experienced some slight burning at times when I use this mask, but the sensation usually only lasts 1-2 minutes. My only problem with this mask is the price, I do believe that there are much better and more affordable options out there, but like anything, that is up to each person. I would recommend this for anyone looking to splurge a bit on a mask, however, it is pricey at $59 for the 1.7 oz. size, but the price has gone waaaay down from when I first bought it though. I give it an 4/5 stars.
