Oil control lotion w/spf15

Recommended Posts

I use basis face soap, acne.org bp gel, and eucerin skin renewing lotion twice a day. While my face has cleared up near-miraculously, my face is still very oily/shiny during the day. Can anyone suggest an oil control lotion to use with/instead of the eucerin? Please advise

IMO, you should continue to use the Eucerin at night, but for the day I would highly recommend Olay's Complete fragrance-free LOTION for combo/oily skin. It contains spf 15 and vitamins E and C. It absorbs very very well into the skin, and should not cause any breakouts.

I've heard good things about Clean & Clear Shine-Free Moisturizer.

I don't use moisturizer during the day, at night I use an AHA cream before applying medication but that's it.

For oiliness during the day, I carry around Clean & Clear Oil-Absorbing sheets... they're awesome and I don't think it makes me break out.

You don't have to moisturize your skin if your skin is already naturally oily.... or at least I don't and I'm a lot less oily that way.

But then how would you get sun protection? sad.gif I have oily skin too and would ditch the moisturizer if it'd cure it. But then summer is like, right here! What do you think?

Have you ever considered wearing make-up with SPF protection? I don't use a moisturizer since my skin gets oilier with it on so I use Maybelline Purestay Powder & Foundation. It provides great coverage and has SPF 15. biggrin.gif

I hope that helps. I don't really know of a moisturizer with SPF that doesn't make people oily. Maybe check out Make-Up Alley, there's a bunch of people on there that review different products. You might have to sign-up there but it's worth it.

Good luck hun.

Scratch that... I totally forgot you were a guy. Unless you feel comfortable wearing make-up! Otherwise, go to makeupalley.com You might find a moisturizer with SPF that you're looking for.
