Hey guys, so I've always had this oily face problem, I would go out in the morning with a pretty face, everything looks perfect, all my makeup is perfectly done. and by the time i get home from work which is like 8 hours later my face becomes so oily. I have used oil /shine control moistruizer, blotting papers.. is / has anyone experience the same problem ?
I have the same problem. I mean after like two hours my face is saturated with oil. I use all things you've listed and nothing. I'm going to try one more thing and if nothing happens I give up.
yess same ! its like oily after two hours. and i can feel it being so oily its disgusting! >.<
i even use expensive makeup hoping it would work better :( it did but only a little bit..
i have oily skin too! i totally know how you feel :( i find that my skincare routine does help ALOT to prevent my face from getting extremely oily throughout the day.
other than that i usually use oil-free foundations, and set everything with skindinavia's no more shine setting spray :) i also bring around blotting sheets and powder to toych up throughout the day :)
I do however still have oily skin, but it's not as bad as it use to :)
you should use primed and porless from too faced at sephora its great even if you dont want to wear makeup plus banishes your pores obviously lol and a little goes a long way also using transluctant powder i think too helps not really sure..and i know bare minerals veil suppose to reflect the shine on the face
It happens to most people with oily skin! I never leave my house without blotting papers at least or else I can easily look a mess! Unfortunately, there really isn't a way to stay completely oil free without completely killing your sebaceous glands. I wouldn't recommend using oil control products though because a lot of those products take out so much of the oil from your skin, that your skin will end up producing even MORE oil to makeup for what's been lost. Try using a gentle cleanser and a good moisturizer. Follow with a mattifying foundation and powder/blot throughout the day every now and then if you need to. There is a ton of us in this boat girl and I hope this works for you!
Urban decay's de-slick is really good, or maybe try blotting sheets, those worked for me
milk of magnesia underneath your primer or as a primer! None of the DESLICK products worked for me, however, UD "ALL nighter" spray is pretty darn good! Also, blotting papers :)
have you tried washing you face that morning with oil control soap? I have oily skin and I am from the southern US some days it helps more then others bc of humidity. But I have found most days it keep the situation under control
you can also try E.L.F HD powder its like it sucks up all the oil in your face so that you have a more matte look
Same here. This is what helped me: Philippe's Milk of Magnesia. I know that sounds crazy. Use this as a face primer. I started using this three months ago and I am telling you it makes all the difference in the world. Normally I get oily not even an hour into my day but with this I go through my whole day with MINIMAL oil. I sweaarrr by this! Google "Milk of Magnesia as face primer" and a to of stuff will come up!
Thanks for all your replys guys ^^ I will have a look around for this Milk of Magnesia, but so far no one seem to sell them in New Zealand >.< people said it used to sell in supermarkets but all the stores/pharmacy in NZ have discontinued selling them.. but thanks for your help anyways :) ill find my way x

I find setting my makeup with MAC's Prep and Prime powder makes a huge difference in keeping oil at bay. It's sold in a compact and as a loose powder, both are great! I always keep blotting papers with me too, my favourite are the ones by Boscia because they don't take off my makeup when I blot. I think keeping your makeup minimal and using a light moisturizer will help too.
Do you use a primer in between moisturizer and foundation?
this really helped me!
