The Best Face Serums For Oily Skin

Based on 74,683 Influenster Reviews

Guess what? Skin serums actually help oily skin. 

By nature, when our skin gets oily, one of the last solutions we think of is to moisturize. However, our bodies always try to compensate for whatever is lost. Therefore, if we resist moisturizing, we are actually causing our skin to produce more oil. 

Serums are heavy duty moisturizers that dive deeper into your skin. They are perhaps the most direct route to ensure your skin isn't overproducing oil. 

Here are five high-quality face serums to get you started!

This serum is great for my oily skin and hyperpigmentation. I use this at night after I cleanse my makeup off with Ole Henrikson African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser. I then apply this serum and wait five minutes. It smells really good! Then I follow it with Ole Henrikson Sheer Transformation creme. I wake up to incredibly soft skin! My brown spots have diminished some and my skin is just glowing! Once in a while I wear this in the morning under my makeup to protect from environmental stresses and it doesn't interfere with how my makeup looks. Very versatile serum. ...read more

When I was at Sephora a couple months ago I picked up this Sunday Riley Power Couple Duo: Total Transformation Kit. I had heard a lot of buzz about Sunday Riley so I bought the Power Couple Duo as an "introductory kit".

The kit comes with the Good Genes treatment and the Sleeping Night Oil.

What it claims:

The Good Genes treatment claims to clarify, exfoliate, plump lines and correct uneven skin tone.

The Sleeping Night Oil claims to reduce the appearance of pores, lines, and sun damage and calm redness and irritation.

Note: the box indicates that the night oil is NOT safe to use during pregnancy, so for you mamas-to-be, steer clear. And do NOT wax while you're using these products. I had forgotten that I had switched products when I went to get my brows waxed, and my skin immediately turned red so I ended up having to tweeze.

After about a week or two of using the combo, I did feel like my skin tone looked more even. But I think this was more attributable to the Good Genes treatment rather than the night oil because I ran out of the Good Genes pretty fast. I was a bit disappointed in the way it was packaged, because the nozzle stopped working after about a week of use, and I had to unscrew it to get to the product.

With the night oil, a little goes a long way so don't be overly generous when applying on your face. My skin tends to be oily around the t-zone, but applying this oil didn't make me break out, so I was pleased with that.

Overall, if I were to purchase this again, I'd stick to the Good Genes treatment and skip the night oil, since I don't think the night oil did much for me.

Have any of you guys tried Sunday Riley? What are your favorites? ...read more

This was my first Drunk Elephant purchase, and several months later I've nearly switched all of my skin care over to DE. I have combination/oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. Since I started using this at night- after cleansing and before my moisturizer- my acne has cleared, my skin is tighter, my face looks healthier, I've not had any adverse reactions, and even my oily skin has calmed to the point I'm more inclined to describe my skin type as "normal"- barely any excess oil is plaguing my face. ...read more
