Top Facial Moisturizers for Oily Skin

Don't skip the moisturizer! 👎🏽

A common misconception in beauty is that adding moisturizer to your skincare routine will result in more oil production. In reality skipping out on moisturizer actually dries the skin which in turn produces more oil to make up for the lack of moisture. If you're new to the moisturizer game and need help finding the perfect product for your oily skin, we're here to help. Check out these top rated facial moisturizers that help keep your oil at bay and skin hydrated.

I have very sensitive combination skin, with a sometimes oily t-zone and dry cheeks. I say sometimes because my forehead is sometimes oily and sometimes dry as the Sahara, so it's really tricky to find a moisturizer I can use on my entire face all the time. GUYS, THIS IS THAT LOTION! Even when my forehead is producing more oil than Texas, this never makes me super oily, and it makes the rest of my skin nice and soft. It doesn't really have any smell, it absorbs nicely, almost instantly, it's not too thick but also it's not watery thin, it has never irritated my skin. I would recommend this for a lot of people. If you had INCREDIBLY dry or oily skin, maybe this wouldn't be the BEST product for you, but...I don't know, even still I'd say give this a try. ...read more

I love this product and the best way to use it, in my opinion, is at night. Really hydrates yet help keep my oily skin a bay. I have had a difficult time trying to find new pieces of skin care & let's just say this is it! The scent is great, but I just dislike the price... wishing it was a little cheaper but you are purchasing for quality, so keep that in mind. 
This product helped clear up my skin within less than a week and I couldn't be any happier! (keep in mind I used to have dry skin & now it is more combo/oily) 
I am actually going to purchase a new one right after typing this review, it is the best!  ...read more

As someone with combination skin that leans oily, I love love love this lotion. It does exactly what it says it's supposed to: moisturize and mattify. It's thick out of the tube, but absorbs quickly for a light-weight feel on the skin. It's great for all-over use, but because only certain parts of my face get oily, I prefer to use it on just my problem areas. I love that this lotion contains SPF so that I don't have to layer products. I've also found that this product practically doubles as a primer, and works amazing underneath makeup. Definitely worth it for the price! ...read more

I have the epitome of combination skin — oily T-Zone and dry, flaky forehead and cheeks. I’ve tried every type of moisturizer out there but I usually end up with oily skin by the end of the day from them. This Cactus Water Moisturizer from Boscia was a game changer! It is SO lightweight, my skin felt quenched but still untouched and freshly-cleaned. It absorbs so well into the skin that I didn’t feel grimey or oily after some time passed! The packaging is so sleek and it even comes with an adorable little spatula. This stuff is truly the bees-knees, and I can’t wait to see how my skin reacts long-term to its daily use! Thanks, boscia® Cactus Water Moisturizer...read more

LOVE this moisturizer. I think it’s perfect for normal, combo and oily skin types. It’s a nice light blue gel consistency that absorbs into skin super fast. A little goes a long way so it will last a good amount of time. I received a deluxe sample of this and I will buy it when I run out. I have combo skin and it leaves my face perfectly hydrated, but doesn’t let any oil come through. The cooling sensation feels so nice in the morning and kind of feels like your skin is waking up. 100% recommend! They have a more cream based product for dryer skin types, but if your combo, oily or normal then you should definitely check this one out!
