Oily / Greasy / Shiny after Moisturizer

Recommended Posts

My face often gets quite oily / greasy after half a day, regardless of what kind of moisturizer I use. AHA makes it worse and I use it during the day as I don't want to bleach my shirts.

What do you recommend to reduce the facial oil? Oil blotting sheets? I heard those might 'press' the oil into the pores and clog them up. Is this true?

How about those facial mist sprays? Some of them boast of anti-sebum / sebum reducing properties. Will those be safe?

its water based, so a lot goes a long way.

I havent had to wipe off the oil on my face ever since I bought this

I recommend trying it

the only thing is if you have super dry skin, its a light moisturizer so you might have to re apply to the driest spots
