1. Tula’s Cult Classic Purifying Cleanser*
I recently got to test out one of the most popular cleansers on Instagram, and have been absolutely loving it! Formulated with a ton of antioxidants, it’s perfect for the oily girl who still wants to maintain some natural hydration. Although the brand says it’s best for dry skin, I have heard from many oily girls that they love it just as much! You can purchase HERE + use code MALLY for 15% off!
2. Mario Badescu’s Oil Free Moisturizer with SPF 30*
One of the most common misconceptions of having oily skin is that you don’t need to moisturize. In many cases, you might find your skin becoming less oily when you use a moisturizer, because your skin doesn’t need to produce more sebum to stay hydrated. I still totally recommend using an oil free moisturizer during the day. The Mario Badescu one is a tried and true for me for all day hydration. It’s not thick or sticky, and it pairs well with all foundations. Plus, you get some SPF protection too! You can purchase HERE!
3. Formula 10.0.6’s Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil Free Moisturizer
If you don’t want SPF in your moisturizer, this is another great option! This moisturizer mattifies without drying out the skin, and it also pairs beautifully with any foundation. This one is a staple for me, and I always make sure to have one in my arsenal for my oily days. You can purchase HERE!
4. First Aid Beauty’s Skin Rescue Purifying Mask
If you are an oily girl who also is acne prone, this whole line needs to be your BFF! First Aid Beauty is my favorite brand for sensitive skin. Their Skin Rescue line is so good for oily, acne prone skin, and this is my favorite product! This mask seriously pulls everything out of your pores and makes your skin feel so balanced. You can purchase HERE!
5. The Ordinary’s Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
This brand continually blows me away, and for good reason! Their products are affordable, ingredient-driven, and they actually do what they say! This treatment works to help minimize the appearance of pores, (fun fact, you can’t actually shrink your pores!) helps balance the over production of oil, and also helps with acne as well. Apply this right before you apply any type of moisturizer, and your skin will thank you! You can purchase HERE!
6. Tarte’s Maracuja Oil
A facial oil?! For oily skin?! Yes! Oils help to balance out oils. I like to apply my facial oils at night so I wake up with bright, hydrated skin. This one from Tarte is thin enough to not feel greasy, but hydrating enough to help balance out the skin. Maracuja oil helps add a beautiful radiance to skin, but it absorbs quickly. You can purchase HERE!
7. Thayer’s Witch Hazel Astringent*
Witch hazel is what oily skin girls’ dreams are made of! Witch hazel is some magic potion that makes your skin seriously go from an oil slick to perfectly balanced within just a few uses. Thayer’s has my favorite witch hazel. There are a ton of different formulas, but I like their regular unscented version the best when it comes to oily skin! Apply this right after you cleanse to help balance out the skin and heal it from the inside out. You can purchase HERE!
8. Bliss’ Micro Magic Microdermabrasion Scrub
I am a huge fan of physical exfoliation for so many reasons. My skin instantly feels softer when I use a physical exfoliant, and this one is my favorite for oily skin. I like to use this in the morning right after I cleanse, because I feel like my makeup goes on better after I’ve exfoliated. I’ve also used this on dry patches on my body and it works wonders! You can purchase HERE!
9. Clarisonic Mia Prima Cleansing System
I get asked all the time if Clarisonics are really worth it, and I always say YES! With oily skin, I feel they are even more beneficial, because they help to deeply cleanse the skin. Clarisonics help to minimize the look of pores, and help keep your skin clean. What oily skin girl doesn’t need that?! I always suggest to use it morning and night with any cleanser. You can purchase HERE!
