I'm currently looking for a moisturizer that works for my combo skin. I have the classic oily/combo T-zone and normal to dry cheeks. VERY DIFFICULT TO MEET MY FACE'S NEEDS. I've used a plethora of different moisturizers -- such as; Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion/Cream, Murad Hydramoisture, Clinique Dramatically Different Gel, and several more. Nothing ever quite works for me. I'm currently using Tarte Maracuja Oil as my moisturizer and it works fairly well but I'd like to find a normal moisturizer and not an oil. If you guys could give me the holy grail for combo skin, I'd be forever greatful!
Try Clarians or origins
I use normal nice &easy range it helps
Have you tried Clinique's dramatically different moisturizer in the lotion variation? It's supposed to be a bit more moisturizing than the gel, and it works flawlessly for me (I have a very oily nose but the rest of my face is normal to very dry - very dry cheeks and forehead). The thing with some combo skins is that you might have to end up using two different moisturizers..a subtle oil free moisturizer for your t zone and then a very nourishing moisturizer for your dry places. Sometimes I have to do that. Don't be too idealistic and try looking for the perfect single product..sometimes it takes more than one.

Neutrogena and Clinique have good ones.
Cliniques dramatically different moisturizer gel if you have combination oily skin and the lotion version if you have combination dry skin

I've used the Clinique's dramatically different moisturizing gel, didn't work very well for me. Just left my face feeling tight and wasn't sufficiently moisturizing enough. Even my "oily" t-zone area felt overly dry.
And which Neutrogena should I try?
I use Olay in the morning and CeraVe at night, and they both work really well for me!
Any particular Olay moisturizer? I know they have a bunch D:.
It's just the Olay Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15. It comes in a yellow box. One thing of it has lasted like three months for me and that's with daily use! I use a different one in the morning and night because the nighttime one doesn't have SPF in it. Not a huge difference, but whatever. Oh, I also use a bit of a heavier moisturizer around the eyes that I got in my Birchbox this month. It's not an "eye cream" but it does the job until I can get one. I'm too lazy to look up the name of it right now but there's a video on my channel if you want to check it out. It's not a shameless plug, I swear!
I really hunkered down on myself during the winter for moisturizing. I had really never done it... and it's so important.

I swear by Vani Cream available at walgreens ! Omg its amazing and gentle on the skin beacuse its free of irritants and is truly amazing on ! Give it a try :)
Sometimes it's best to use 2 products: a lotion and a cream! I like to use Olay Complete Lotion on my T-zone and the Olay Age Defying Classic Daily Renewal cream on the drier parts of my face. Hope this works for you!!

Lush Enzymion. It is a God-send. It is the best moisturizer I've ever used. I have combo skin, and it is the perfect moisturizer for me.
Clinique is one of the best ones using the 3 step oily combination can actually help with the oily skin ! I use it every morning and night before i go to sleep. :) hope that helped.

I've been really wanting to try out Lush's skincare D: but I just haven't taken the plunge. I'll have to try it soon! Thank you all for your suggestions. I've been using CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM and its been treating me pretty nicely.
Try Cetaphil. Its really good for combination skin types and is gentle and light on the skin :) Or a nice Dove product has always been good for me also !!

Try Seb Med moisturizers, available at CVS. Department store: origins. Avoid Neutragena (way to irritating and drying).
I use Mary Kay. The TimeWise Age-Fighting Moistureizer with the TimeWise 3-in-1 Cleanser for combination skin, makes my skin feel like I'm walking on a cloud. No heavy ingreadients, drying out or oily residue. I will never use anything else. Amazing :)

Neutrogena Oil-free. It's fantastic, it leaves you with no oil and soaks in super quickly. It also has SPF so it protects you from the sun. AND it's much cheaper than most moisturisers!
