Oily Skin Essentials

Having an oily skin is actually a pain in the ass and can be considered a curse to me. With this dilemma plus the hot weather in my country, you’ll never know how much effort I put and do to be fresh especially when going to work. Without anything on my face or with only loose powder, my face tends to oil up around half to an hour. And when I said oil up, I mean extreme oiliness, as in! It might not be noticeable but when you touch it? Ugh. *annoyed emoji here*

Finding the right product to lessen the sebum is really a struggle but I have here my list that I considered essential for everyday.

Products for Oily Skin

Let’s start with my facial wash. I’ve been using Himalaya Herbals Oil Control Lemon Face Wash for few weeks now, I’ve tried their Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub and it’s good too! Yeah, so going back, this facial wash has this cooling effect of the Lemon extract plus Honey. This has blue beads in a gel-like consistency and has this scent that I can’t describe.😛 I bought mine at Watsons for  150.00 PHP and it can last for a month!

Next is my ELF BB Cream with SPF 20. I love this one and this is great for summer, unlike wearing a foundation, this one is lightweight. I got the shade Buff and the scent is something like vanilla with slight citrus smell. With this on my face, my face tends to oil up around 1-2 hours which is WOW!I forgot how much I got this one but this is available in malls and other beauty stores.

After the BB Cream, next is my mattifying powder which is Essence All About Matt!  Every since I discover this product, I didn’t look for another powder. *grin emoji here*  This one comes in white but once you put it on your face, it becomes transparent. It sets my ELF BB cream and makes my skin mattified. Downsides? It doesn't have sponge in it so either you purchase a separate sponge or use a brush instead to apply it on your face. Another boo for this product, it doesn’t have built-in mirror which is useful for retouching. And probably, the most annoying downside is the back of the container/case where you can locate the steel that holds the product and the cover (sorry, I don’t know how to describe it). It seems that the steel loosens and the back of the container breaks as you use the product over the time. But hey, the product itself is a miracle and great for oily skin and it only costs 269.00 PHP.

Next is blotting paper, this is something that’s always available in my bag. I am not actually particular what brand as long as it will do its job to remove the sebum from my face. I usually bought mine at Watsons, and the one that I have is only 31.00 PHP. Cheap and useful.

And the last one is mirror, a big mirror, this is actually  just a  miscellaneous cause I am not contented with small mirror. Since I have an oily skin, I am always conscious about my face, I tend to check it from time to time to see if I’m already shiny and If I need to retouch. In the picture, you’ll see my 4-yr old mirror.

So there! I hope the products I stated above will help you as well to lessen/remove the excess sebum from your face.
