Skincare Brands Perfect For Oily Skin
Jun. 18, 2020
Do you suffer from oily skin? Does your face appear shiny? Is your skin greasy when you touch it? Are you prone to getting acne breakouts? Does your makeup melt off your face within a few hours after you’ve applied it?
If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions then you fall in the category of having oily skin. The cause can be anything from genetic, to diet, to the products you are using.
As the first step in your mission to combatting oily skin, it’s a good idea to do a check of the ingredients in your products. Make sure they don’t contain any oil, wax or artificial perfumes. As these ingredients can sometimes be the little culprits that contribute to your too-shiny glow.
For sufferers of oily skin, it’s best to use a product specifically for your skin type. They will contain the best ingredients to bring balance back to your skin.
But no need to panic! We can help you have beautiful skin. We found some celebrated brands that specialize in products for oily skin. These products use oil fighting ingredients like salicylic acid, seaweed and witch hazel, to name a few.
Perfect Brands For Oily Skin
Neutrogena is a trusted brand that has been around for decades. Their products are dermatologist recommended and they have a wide range of products specifically for oily skin.
One of their most-sold products is the Visibly Clear Pore & Shine Daily Face Scrub. It contains exfoliating micro-beads and salicylic acid. Salicylic acid helps to unclog pores, remove oil and mattify the skin to an even tone.
In no time your skin will be clear and shine-free!
NeutrogenaClear & Defend Facial Scrub
If you are familiar with Clinique skincare, then you will know that they are dermatologist-developed and have different products specifically for all different skin types.
Type 4 is for oily skin and contains natural ingredients like Sugar Kelp, Seaweed and Saccharina Latissima. Together these ingredients reduce the overproduction of oil in the skin.
Plus, their products don’t contain any parabens, phthalates, or fragrances which we know are bad for oily skin types.
A great way to try out the Type 4 line is to use their 3-Step Kit for Skin Type 4. The kit contains everything you need! A Facial Soap, Clarifying Lotion and their popular Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel.
It’s a great way to try out the range before you commit to the full-size products. The brand even promises to give you radiant skin within two weeks of using the trio.
The Philosophy skincare brand prides itself in using dermatological science and the power of nature to transform skin.
They developed a range of products that help clear oily skin. One of their best-sellers is their Clear Mattifying Clay Facial Toner. It works well because its key ingredients are kaolin clay and witch hazel.
Kaolin clay absorbs excess oil and fights acne. While witch hazel reduces excess oil. Together these ingredients work to instantly clear the skin of dirt, oil and impurities while refining the look of pores.
Over time you will have a shine-free complexion.

Double Your Lash Length With Sky High Mascara!
I bought this mascara after seeing a post about it on Facebook. I love trying out new mascaras but rarely do I find one that I will use regularly like my beloved tarte - Maneater Mascara However this stuff is good. MAYBELLINE - Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara It gave my lashes so much volume & length they literally doubled in size! My lashes are already pretty long to begin with but this made them look amazing. The photo is after applying only one coat so I can only imagine how good they will look after two or three coats! It also didn’t clump up my lashes at all. I applied it really quickly & lazily too because I was in a rush to get ready & I was still amazed! I honestly think this is going to be my new daily mascara. It is waterproof but not the annoying kind that leaves your eyes completely black when you go to take it off. It came off really easily with my POND'S - Facial Moisturizers Dry Skin Cream which is what I’ve always used to remove my eye makeup, since I was a kid! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
Drunk Elephant- The Littles 🐘
I won this cute little kit in a raffle & I couldn’t be more thankful! I have always wanted to try these products but never wanted to spend the money on all of them incase I didn’t like them! Inside this kit are the following products: DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 That’s literally a whole skincare routine! So far I started out my day with one of Drunk Elephants infamous “Face Smoothies” I washed my face with Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser & then combined C-Firma Day Serum, Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, & Protini Polypeptide Cream together on my mixing trey with a disposable skincare spatula! I applied it all over my face & neck. Once that absorbed, I applied Umbra Tinte Daily Defense SPF 30 over my face & neck & was done! I love how the kit comes with steps to walk you through different routines you can use in the morning or at night! I will do a follow up review after I have used all the products for a few weeks! But so far, my skin feels & looks great! I have been breaking out lately & haven’t felt the best about my skin so I really needed this pick me up!! Thank you for reading! You guys are the best!! ❤️ @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
Do It All Toner 🍃🍃
I have been loving the brand Truly lately ✨ I recently purchased this: 🍃TRULY - CBD Jelly Toning Solution 🍃 And it’s by far one of my favorite toners. Ingredients: 💚100MG CBD 💚Glycolic Acid 💚Tea Tree Oil 💚Organic Aloe 💚Rose Petal Extract This brand is also: 💚Vegan 💚Cruelty Free 💚Clean I use this every other night and it as tremendously helped my skin barrier and acne. I was really concerned about the glycolic acid irritating or drying my skin but it didn’t at all 🤩 I highly recommend this to combo and oily , acne prone skin. This will be a toner I keep in my night routine. I got it from Ulta (of course) for $24 (I paid $15 after coupons) Do you use CBD products? 🍃
A Journey of Self 🌹
I figured Black History Month was as good as any opportunity to talk about my self finding. Growing up in a small yet old family, I always had questions about my roots and family history. I also struggled with self conscious doubts about my appearance. Why is my nose this big? Why is my hair this curly? Why am I taller than average? These weighed heavy on my mind growing up because honestly, sticking out sucked. So, I finally dove deep into my family’s origin and decided to do an Ancestry DNA analysis. I immersed myself with every corner of the site. I only got the chance to finish my maternal grandmas side of the family tree, but even that has plenty of gaps. Yet, when I received my DNA results I was stoked. Then I realized, I don’t know much about any of these places. So I dug even deeper. I have a little journal of things I’ve learned and want to know, but this was quite the experience. It was heartbreaking and satisfying at the same time. I highly recommend for every race and background to do this DNA Test. The best part of this was scrolling through photos of the people of the respected countries I was DNA matched to. I swear I saw a girl who looked like me, but everyone else thinks I’m tripping lol. In the end, I’m satisfied with my results and findings. Relatively speaking, this way of self discovery has been the most effective.
HOLY GRAIL SPF 🌞🌞🌞
Okay guys as I have said before I am guilty of rarely ever wearing sunscreen. I just never liked the feel of it on my skin. I always felt like it made me greasy & clogged my pores. However, once I heard about this product I was very intrigued. NIOD - Survival 30 It actually isn’t sold in the United States for some reason so I had to purchase it on a UK website. (Beauty Bay) It is an antioxidant serum with SPF 30. At first, it appears to be tinted but it’s actually not. On NIOD’s website they state: “The slight tinted appearance is derived from the active technologies including Lutein, Fractionated Melanin and Pycnogenol.” It blends in with your skin so easily & does not leave a white cast like some other SPF products. However this serum literally makes my skin tone soo even & perfect! It also contains silicone so it completely smooths over my pores. AND besides all that great stuff, it’s a mineral sunscreen! So it protects against environmental & lifestyle issues. Like UV rays, blue light, etc. I have never loved a product as much as this one! I literally cannot believe how good my skin looks while using this stuff! For a 30ml bottle, I paid $33 on the Beauty Bay site. For me, that is completely worth it! It comes in this adorable packaging & pretty glass bottle. It also has a pump dispenser & squirts out the perfect amount for a single use! I really can’t recommend this stuff enough guys! It’s wonderful!! @cherie@Cheriebeauty@CheriePick
