Moisturizers For Oily Skin: Ask IMBB Gang

Ask IMBB Gang

Jomol asks:

I am getting bored of using the same old Clean and Clear Moisturizer for oily skin and want to change to some good moisturizer, which would not break me out but at the same time moisturize the skin enough so that I could easily blend in foundation. Please suggest both budget and high-end moisturizers.

    –>Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel With Pump by Clinique – Is a little pricey- £16.50 50ml and
    £33.00 per 100ml, but it lasts a while. Its specially made for oily skin. no unpleasant smell. overall i loved this
    –>Body Shop Vitamin E Intense Moisture Cream is my all time favourite…its not too pricey
    (11 pounds)

    Also I have tried Loreal Hydra fresh which was pretty good
    Fab India’s Vit E Skin Hydrating Cream for oily skin
    Neutrogena moisturizer is also good (these are not soo pricey)

    Right now I am using Body Shop Vitamin E Intense Moisture Cream and clinique

  12. HG one

    The Chanel Hydramax Active Serum

    Vichy’s Three Action moisturizer

    Uriage Cold cream – protective cream

    Lancome Nutrix Royal Intense Restoring Lipid Enriched Cream

    :waiting: :methinks: :methinks: :methinks: :methinks: :methinks: bussss ab tak to itna hi pata hai

  13. Till about 6 months back..i didnt use any moisturizer at all for my soooper oily skin…..even after repeatedly being told by my mom…..then I joined IMBB and I started following CTM routine regularly 🙂 I now use a mixture of nutragena oil free moisturizer and lacto calamine….coz nutragena one feels too oily for me and lacto calamine feels dry….while my overall skin texture has become softer and smoother….acne problem continues…..infact right now I am facing a horrible acne outbreak all over my face….i havent faced such an outbreak in at least 6 years when I was 16….I recently moved from delhi to bangalore and i guess the sudden and drastic change in climate is the curlprit… skin looks dull flaky, yet oily -all at the same time… 😥 😥 😥 😥 sorry for ranting….but i feel soooosad right now…… :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa: :waaa:

    1. awww…. i can so relate to u dear … :(( ye acne problem meri bhi same hai, sometimes it is aggravated like hell, i am under the treatment of a derma since last 4 months n filhaal these acne’s are under control * touchwood*

      1. ohhh….good to hear u found help ! 🙂 I had consulted a derma a few years back and he gave me salicylic acid based facewash….whic does dry out the pimples but my skin becomes dry too 🙁 I’m struggling to strike a balance between oil control and over-drying in the somewhat dry weather of bangalore…..

        1. ye thoda complicated hai… :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: :stars: but may be u can tell this problem to the derma n he/she would take care of this.

        2. hey oopsii which face wash do you use? try using Sebamed Clear Face cleansing foam..its fab for acne/blackhead/white head check with your derma first..also Avene cleansing face wash for oily skin is good for acne prone skin..i am using both of them currently and breakouts r a lot less..drink loads of water..hope this helps :yes:

  14. Jomol thanks a lot :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: :puchhi: I have been hunting for a good moisturizer for combi oily skin from the past 2 weeks… This post is gonna be very useful for me. :thanks: :thanks:

  15. Oopsiiiii….awwww…..I think you will get over it…..try cutting back on all products you use and then one by one you try and see which product is causing the breakout….you sure you are not using any clog-blocking product :silly: :silly: :silly:

    1. naah….all my products are non-condegemic…thething is only 10 days back when I was in delhi my skin was literally glowing…..and now it looks like papad :cry::cry::cry::cry: and i havent changed any face products either…..

    2. clog-blocking product?? Sorry but i never heard about it n i don’t know. can u plz tell me how to know about clog blocking product

  16. Oopsii..a friend of mine suffered from the same problem when she shifted from Delhi to Bangalore.Her derma gave her Cetaphil products and they really worked !! 🙂

  17. me too have combi-acne prone skin..
    Himalaya Face Moisturizer (all skin types)
    Lotus whiteglow emulsion

    I hate lactocalamine… :hunterwali: yucky… gives me acne and rashes…hate the smell too.. i had one friend who had serious terrible acne for years..once she stopped LC her acne calmed down..Its major pore clogging thingy..

  18. I have devilishly oily skin prone to breakouts. My fav moisturisers are from the Normaderm range and lately I have started using H2O’s Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment; it is working well……not at all oily and non-comedogenic too!

  19. I have super oily skin during summers and dry skin during winters .. Now I am using VLCC lavang moisturiser during summers and himalayas Face moisturiser during winters .. I am ok with these products except for VLCC for its jandu balm effect after applying.. Still searching for a good moisturiser both for summers and winters :methinks: I hate lacto calamine too.. :scream:

  20. Joms…Try LA Roche Posay :yes: I adore the range :love: :love: :love: . Nuetrogena oli free moisture is also good. :yes: :yes:

    1. oh….And Clinique Dramatically different moisturizing gel. Totally non sticky and quickly absorbed. Love it. :specs: :specs: :specs:

  21. I am in search of it too :methinks: I am using Clinque CTM, the toner/clarifying lotion is damn good but the moisturiser breaks me out :headbang:

  22. oopsii.. bangolre does have really weird weather that way. when i first came here, had a massive acne and pimple session :struggle: its a bit better now since the skin has adjusted. my friend from Delhi is still struggling though. every time she goes back home her skin glows and the minute she lands back here.. Mr pimple gives a nice hello..
    i am using saslic foaming face wash which is drying, so i follow it up with coconut oil/honey on my face, leave it for an hour and wash it off with cold water.. it counteracts the dry feeling. try it. hope it helps

  24. and jomol.. i stayed away form moisutizers for over 15 years! using revelon touch and glow for now after reading the review here..still have not found MY HG yet 😐 :((

  25. hi jomol… :pompom: i use fab india green tea moistu.. really good for oily skin. even makes your skin clear and even through out. :preen: 😀

  26. Jomol have u tried “Garnier Essential Care Daily Moisturising Lotion”? It is SUPERB!! It just saps up all the excess oil & leaves the skin so moisturized too. I love it & use it everyday with my foundation. :makeup: This is it’s description:
    “Garnier Daily moisturising lotion is a special oil free lotion that gives your skin a natural glow without an oily shine. Micro-captors absorb the extra oil from your skin. Vegetal glycerol retains the skin moisture reserves. Vitamin E helps to protect against free radicals. Apply daily in the morning after cleansing skin.”

  27. hey jomol,entirely diff opinion frm al d above,but worth trying,. Try proactiv green tea moisturiser,its dam gud n non comedogenic too!
    Wel u hv 2 enquire abt ordering it seperately. Its ltle pricey around 750inr,i got it free wth my proactiv kit! Do let me know if u order it! N one more thing they r havin cod option too! :yes:

    1. Just thought I’d mention that Biotique Chlorophyll Gel is moisturizer that is to be used alone and not with a foundation. I’ve tried products from Garnier that would be suited for this but unfortunately I don’t remember the names. Sorry.

  28. Jomol, I was wondering why no one seems to be giving cetaphil it’s due credit. It is one of the best moisturizers. All top makeup artists use it coz it’s the safest :methinks: Any one and everyone I know who has used it has never left it:))

  29. Thank you Ekta…..I once got a cetaphil moisturizer but I didnt know that it was for dry skin and it didn’t suit me, thankyou for the info, I will definitely check out Cetaphil’s oily skin’s moisturizer :woot: :woot: :woot:

  30. Hi Jomo, I have combination skin too.. I have used many moisturizers n I swear by Neutrogena Oil Free.. Its just awesome.. :yes: :yes: :yes: :yes:
    I also like Vichy Emulsion that Nupur reviewed… And Lotus alphamoist.. :love: :love:
    I have not used too many High end brand moisturizers though :((

  31. I’m just using Lacto Calamine for now. It’s working well enough…but I want to try something else as well.
    Is the Clean and Clear one nice? :silly:
