Having oily or acne-prone skin can really be a pain in the butt. Anything you eat or do can cause flare-ups or breakouts, and don’t even get me started on makeup. That just slides right off your face after a few hours without the help of (many) proper products. Thankfully, nowadays there are a slew of products that help with oily skin problems, and here they are: some of the best skin care and makeup products for acne or oily skin!
1) Indie Lee Clearing Mask
Every oily-skinned girl knows this: you’ve got to unclog the pores and remove impurities religiously. And that means clay masks. However, on the down side, clay masks can sometimes be drying. The Indie Lee Clearing Mask purifies, detoxifies and nourishes your skin at the same time, thanks to Salicylic, Glycolic and Hyaluronic Acids. Salicylic and Glycolic Acids are great for exfoliating and removing impurities, while Hyaluronic Acid restores moisture to your face.
2) BECCA Skin Love Weightless Blur Foundation
Without the right foundation, the rest of your makeup won’t sit well. With BECCA Skin Love Weightless Blur Foundation, your pores will be blurred out, mimicking the look of smooth, healthy skin. This foundation is a medium to buildable coverage foundation, and its weightless formula improves the skin’ moisture levels over time. All in all, this foundation will cover up your imperfections, and will not cause more breakouts!
3) ORIGINS Bare-Faced Glow Original Skin™ Glow Boosting Trio Skincare Set
Sometimes it may take a while to figure out the best products that suit you. And this is where the ORIGINS Bare-Faced Glow Original Skin™ Glow Boosting Trio Skincare Set comes in handy. Each product is just 15ml, consisting of a cleanser/makeup remover, moisturiser and mask. This set is infused with willowherb, which helps minimise pores and blur imperfections!
4) Anastasia Beverly Hills Dewy Set Setting Spray
If you’re the type of girl who likes a dewy finish, this is the setting spray for you! Not only is the packaging oh-so-beautiful with its glitter bottle (note: the content itself is not glittery), but more importantly, it actually helps your makeup last much longer! Most who have tried the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dewy Set Setting Spray thinks it gives them a natural glow, and they love the coconutty scent as well!
5) MARIO BADESCU Acne Control Kit
The name of this product says it all: control your breakouts with the whole kit! Consisting of a cleanser, two lotions, a cream, a mask and even a compact mirror, you’ll be on your way to clear skin in no time! The MARIO BADESCU Acne Control Kit deeply cleanses and exfoliates, prevents pore congestion, absorbs oil and tightens pores just to name a few things.
6) MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Face Primer
The MAC Cosmetics Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Face Primer was made specifically for oily and combination skin types, so you can rest easy once you have this primer on. Rich in natural ingredients, this primer hydrates and primes the skin for foundation application while controlling oil. Best of all, it doesn’t feel sticky and gives you a subtle glow instead!
7) FRESH Soy Face Cleanser
One of the brand’s best-sellers, FRESH Soy Face Cleanser is infused with soy proteins, cucumber extract and rosewater. Each of the ingredients come together to remove impurities and soothe skin to restore a natural balance and healthy complexion.
