Unfortunately, for those of us with oily skin, the problem is not the lack of shine-busting products -- it's the fact that they never seem to work. That magical powder that mattifies everyone else's faces slides off your t-zone after just a few hours, and those oil blotters that work like a charm for your friend do squat for you. So what's a glistening gal to do? Stay chained to your powder compact? Not anymore. Readers tested every skin care and makeup product out there for oily skin, which determined this list of the products that really work.
Skip ahead to see the 19 best products for oily skin.
Once you find the best products for your skin, you’ll want to make sure you're not aggravating your oil production with your skin care regimen. According to board-certified dermatologist Nathan Newman, MD, "It's all about finding a balance." In your attempt to mattify your shine, you may be overzealously using too many harsh, oil-stripping products. The result? Your sebum glands will think they aren't producing enough oil, which only exacerbates your oily-skin problem.
Newman recommends using a gentle cleanser, avoiding products with alcohol, and choosing oil-free, non-comedogenic makeup. Now that you're armed with the best ways to treat your oily skin, check out the products that won't fail you (and, more importantly, your t-zone) now.
