I use Olay Sensitive Beauty Fluid at the moment which took me awhile to find because nearly all other moisturizers clogged my pores/ broke me out. However it makes me look greasy and although I dont mind this at night when my skin needs extra moisture because I use all my drying products at night. I need a matte moisturizer to use under my makeup because using the Olay during the day is making my makeup slide off and have that oil slick look. My skin is oily but not overly. 


Any suggestions? Much appreciated.

If light and dewy, almost barely there, is what you're looking for. I'm a big fan of the Body Shop Aloe Serum with a lightweight primer over it.

  • Supplements: Shi wei Bei Du Tang (powder by Sun Ten) and the Zhen Zhu An Chuang Pan (tablets by Guang Ci Tang)  both for acne+ other Chinese mood stabilizers.

  • Diet: Ultra Meal and Orac Energy Greens shakes- no meat, coffee,  dairy, gluten or alcohol
  • Topical: crysanthemum and MSM baths and cleansing with Proactiv Deep and Kavi Coral on Konjac sponge to exfoliate, and Jason Aloe and Tea Tree and Hyaluronic Acid to heal and hydrate.
