Top 10 Products for Oily Skin ...

By Jennifer

If you have oily skin, chances are, you’ve experimented with hundreds of different products, only to find that some of them are too harsh, and make your skin feel too dry, or are too gentle, and don’t control the oil. I can help! Here’s a list of my favorite skin care products for people with oily skin.

1 Aveda Botanical Kinetics Purifying Gel Cleanser

Aveda Botanical Kinetics Purifying Gel CleanserPrice: $20.00 at
This cleanser is strong enough to dissolve excess oil, but gentle enough to use every day. Enriched with natural botanicals like chamomile, lavender, rosemary, and Vitamin E.

2 Aveda Botanical Kinetics Hydrating Lotion

Aveda Botanical Kinetics Hydrating LotionPrice: $32.00 at
Just because you have oily skin doesn’t mean you should strip away all of the moisture. Use this moisturizer after the gel cleanser for soft, supple, balanced skin.

3 The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Face Mask

If you have oily skin and blemishes, combat them both with this mask. It contains lemon tree and tea tree oils to fight nasty break-outs, and Tamanu oil to soothe irritated skin.

6 Philosophy the Microdelivery
